Pearls At a Great Price

Resolve to look superfantastic in 2008 with this fabulous black freshwater pearl and mesh chain necklace from Sun Jewelry.

It’s hard to imagine a throat that wouldn’t be flattered by this lovely piece.

Suggested retail price is $148.00, but by buying direct from Sun Jewelry, you can get it for the bargain price of just $59.00.

Tuck Up Warm

There’s something about c0ld winter nights that make bright colors all the more appealing to me, so you can imagine how my eye was caught by this lucious bed in a bag set at overstock.com!

Majorca Bedding Set
Citrussy orange is accented with stripes of purple, green and lime, as well as an embroidered floral pattern. The set includes: one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, two pillow cases, two decorative pillow shams, bedskirt and comforter, so all you need to do is put it on the bed and slip between those 220tc sheets for a restful and pleasant night’s sleep. It also comes in every size from Full to California King.

Normally, this set would cost you $149.00, but right now it can be yours for just $69.99. That’s a savings of 53%, so the price definitely won’t keep you up at night!

The Eyes Have It…Tiger’s Eye, That Is

I admit it. I’m a complete sucker for tiger’s eye. The warm gold tones flickering in the deep brown delight me. Combine it with gold, and I’m a happy girl. Facet it and dangle it from Baroque scrolls, and…well…take a look at these and you’ll know what it does to me.

These gorgeous Lenora Dame tiger’s eye earrings with Baroque gold plated scrolls are elegant, yet a touch Bohemian. They also happen to be very affordable. Normally $62.00, Bluefly has them for just $37.00. That’s 40% off!

Get In the Swim of Things

Yes, I know it’s still icy outside. No, you haven’t taken down the Christmas tree or rung in the New Year. On the other hand, cruise season is rapidly approaching and now is the time to prepare.

Shape Fix Bandeau Swimdress
Luckily enough, Newport News is holding a sale on their 2008 swimwear line. This is your chance to get a pretty, fashionable new suit at a bargain price. For instance, this lovely Shape Fix bandeau suit comes in six different colors and Tall and Women’s sizes as well as Regular. It features an underwire keyhole, shelf bra, as well as front and back power-mesh control for a firmer look. Normally, it sells for $49.00 to $54.00, but right now you can get it for $39.00 to $44.00.

There’s nothing like being fabulous, fashionable, and frugal all at the same time.

Bonanza of Bargains for the Boys!

It’s Nordstrom’s half-yearly menswear sale!

Now is the time to head over to your local Nordstrom and look for incredible deals on men’s clothing of every description. Or, you know, you could skip the crowds and do your shopping by computer at their website.

Hugo Boss Leather Buckle Belt

For instance, this handsome Hugo Boss leather buckle belt normally sells for $165.00. Right now at the sale, you can get it for $109.90, which works out to 33% off the regular price. That’s what I call a good deal!

Start Your Resolution Early

The new year starts next week, but if increased fitness is one of your intended resolutions, you can get a jump on it by heading over to the Addidas site today and ordering these

Response Astro track pants today.

Addidas track pants
The ClimaLite fabric wicks persperation away from your skin, allowing you to jog in comfort longer. Reflective details will allow others to see you while you’re running in low light, for added safety. There’s a zippered pocket, so you can carry any small necessities along with you (keys, ID, etc.). The combination elastic/drawstring waistband means you’ll be able to wear these when the first few pounds slide off, too.

Best of all, they’re marked down from the original price of $60.00 all the way down to $36.00. Now if I can just figure out how to jog effectively with a jumbo latte in my hand….

Merry Christmas, everyone!

May your holiday be filled with joy, peace, and superfantastic stocking stuffers!

Christmas Gift and Santa Accessories I’m off to see what Santa brought me, but I’ll be back tomorrow with more exciting bargains.

All the best,


Cashmere, Oh My Cashmere

I’m not usually a fan of the hoodie, but this fabulous, elegant cashmere one from The Gap might just change my mind.

Gap Cashmere Hoodie
It comes in four classic colors and petite and tall sizes as well as regular. It’s the details, though, that really make it. The button closure is off-center, the beautifully proportioned shawl collar turns into the hood, and the whole cut is designed to flatter.

Best of all, it’s original price of $128.00 has been slashed down to $99.99.

Indy? Is That You?

He’s rugged. He’s smart. He’s pragmatic yet romantic. He tries and tries to be a rebel without a conscience, but beneath that rumpled shirt and well-worn leather jacket beats the heart of a noble hero. He’s Indiana Jones.

Women want him. Men want to be like him. What’s more, he’s got a signature look many would die for.

Indy Hat Luckily, thanks to The Village Hat Shop, you don’t even have to go broke to do it. This is the official, licensed Indiana Jones Safari Hat in 100% fur felt complete with the Indiana Jones side pin and sweatband embossment. Available in Small, Medium, Large, Extra-Large in your choice of brown or black. The usual price is $125.00, but right now it can be yours for just $105.00.

Now all you need is a plane ticket and a bullwhip.
