253: C. Wonder Sample Sale Wants

MAC's Want it For Less: C. Wonder Sample Sale Wants

C. Wonder's sample sale is fantastic. I went yesterday morning and some of the prices were additionally marked down more than 50%. I LOVE C. Wonder so this sample sale just fueled my passion even more. Although I snatched all of the major items I wanted, such as the monogram jewelry box, I want to double back for a few smaller home items that I missed (read: didn't have room in my bag for). Click through the photo above to see all the items I plan to scoop on my second trip to the sale this weekend...Mind you, all of these items are $20 and under. Yep, run there now.

P.S. The sale will be ending on Sunday, 10/18/14, so I suggest you swing by sooner than later.

252: Bedroom Makeover Wants

MAC's Want it For Less: Bedroom Essentials

I plan to redesign my bedroom this month and the following items are top priority on my shopping list. Below I have outlined a series of issues with my room and how each item should help solve the issue.
  1. I have a tacky grey radiator that sweats like someone on an endless elliptical workout. [Build a radiator cover for it with a large screen and a hard top that won't weather. Marble perhaps?]
  2.  My windows are the focal point of my room but aren't showcased like I want them to be. [Set the curtain rod higher and hang long opaque white curtains by ring clips on both sides of the windows.]
  3. I want to be able to open my curtains without worrying about "Who's that peeping through my window?" [Get sheer black shades or semi sheer white curtains]
  4. There are a few bins of craft supplies and maybe 10 boxes of shoes that need to be stored under the bed but the bed sits too low and needs sturdy support in the middle as well as the outside. [DIY additional wooden bed lifts for the middle.]
  5. I can't make room for a standing bookcase but my book collection is massive, in size and volume. [Edit the collection of books and store all of the keepers in bins on the already existing over the radiator "bookshelf"]  
My deadline for this part of the project is November 1st and I'm pretty excited to see how this goes.

250: Chanel Camelia Umbrella

MAC's Want it For Less: Chanel Camelia Umbrella

Clear bubble umbrellas are so versatile but a tad too generic for me. In searching for a new umbrella to match my new raincoat, whenever I buy one, I came across Chanel's Camelia umbrella. While it's not a bubble umbrella, I thought the design would look amazing on one. DIY project here I come ;). Stay tuned...

249: Frosted Clear Raincoats

MAC's Want it For Less: Frosted Clear Raincoats

The weather in NY is starting to get a bit rainy; however the temperature in certain ever-crowded train stations remain sweltering. A frosted clear raincoat might be an excellent way to protect your outfit from the rain but still feel cool :). It's lightweight, durable, and super duper fly. Click the picture for more details on where to get yours.

248: Kunas Curtain in Peacock Green

MAC;s Want it For Less: Kunas Curtain in Peacock Green

Sometimes you just can't paint a wall.  Sometimes you don't have the patience, you don't have the money, or you just don't have a yes from your landlord. Sometimes you can find a way around all of those obstacles with a statement curtain. I found this stunner of a curtain over at Elementarie. Its vibrant green pattern is bold enough to draw your attention but subtle enough to not be an eyesore. If I had a dining room, this would be #1 on my wishlist.

246: Metallic Flash Tats Look For Less

MAC Found it For Less: Silver and Gold Metallic Flash Tats

Beyoncé has been rocking the paint off of her Flash Tats lately which would lead one to believe they might be expensive. Guess again, they ring in at just under $25; however, I found them for even less. Get them from The Stylist La for $10 OR shave off a few dollars by getting them for $6 on Etsy.

245: October 2014 Wants - Fashion

MAC's Fashion Wishlist: October 2014

Capes, jumpsuits, and pink are in my horoscope for October it seems. H&M has been a major no flex zone for me lately so it comes as no surprise that many of my sets feature their items. I am very in love with their pieces this month and can't wait to get my hands on that necklace specifically. Rounding out my wishlist for the month is a faux leather clutch from Old Navy, an uber fabulous poncho cape (yes, it's a poncho AND a cape) from Zara, and a pair of Aminah Abdul Jillil's new Bow Flats. While over half of the items are on sale, I may have to wait a while for the others. See below if you want to purchase any of the items pictured.

244: Gold Tone Mirrored Lens Sunglasses Look for Less

MAC's Found It For Less: Gold Tone Mirrored Lens Sunglasses

I've been style-crushing pretty hard on Olivia Palermo recently. Her latest pair of sunglasses was so fly that I had to go  searching for one of my own. Although she wears mirrored sunnies pretty frequently, the gold tint to these peaked my interest. If you want the look of these for less click the link at the bottom.
