A Little of This, A Little of That

Most of you know that I love Zappos. If you're new to the blog, you maybe don't, but I really do. Easy to shop, easy to return if needed. I found a new place to shop this week called 6pm. And guess what?!? On shoe clearance were some shoes from one of my favorite designers - Lisa Pliner. They have pretty good pricing on a lot of stuff, and I really like that you can narrow your search by size, color, style, price, and designer. So if you're looking for a pair of wedge sandals, under $50, that are yellow, you can do that! I can't tell you how easy it is to shop for specific items on this site, which is great when I know exactly what I'm looking for to help a client with that perfect style. Definitely a keeper!

Next thing up this week - my second year at the Carolina Music Awards. Last year, I hosted the Red Carpet Fashion Lounge, and this year I'm changing the pace and interviewing on the red carpet. I hope to have my video footage up on my YouTube channel soon after, but it will depend on how long editing takes. I've learned that sometimes it takes a little longer than you'd think. I can't wait to see what people are wearing this year - last year there was a mix of cocktail dresses, both short and long, and some of the guys showed up dressed for success, and some wore jeans and button-down shirts. I still truly believe that clothes make the man, or woman, and when networking and meeting new people, my advice is always to dress to impress.

And speaking of dressing to impress, I notice the Men's Wearhouse has a program that's new to me. It could have happened last year, but I really don't get to see that many commercials these days. Who has time to watch tv? They're running a lot of commercials this year about my favorite topic and providing a benefit, too. If you have a suit in your closet you never wear anymore, for whatever reason, you can donate the suit to the Men's Wearhouse, and get a coupon for 50% off. It's called the National Suit Drive, and they give the suits to men in need of something to interview and go to work in. During these economic times, any helping hand you can afford to give while cleaning out your closet is a good thing.

So that's my week so far - new place to shop, the Carolina Music Awards, and the National Suit Drive. What are you doing this week? Find anyplace new to shop? Donated all your suits already? Some exciting social event? Let me know what you're doing this summer...
