I've been searching for a decently cute contact case for awhile now. And by searching, I mean glancing through the aisle in CVS when I remember. But, lucky for all you, I happened to stumble over a great travel case here online! A place to put extra solution, a mirror, a simple, chic case, what more could you ask for? Just $12 at MoMAstore.

I'm pretty picky with my underwear, I have a funny shape so it's hard to find a pair that fits well. If you happen to be build like me (narrow hips, tiny bum, wide waist) then you will love these boyshorts by Kara Janx. They're only $20 and they're so very comfortable, I could spend all day in them!

To go with my many themes of the day, here is a pair of sequin accented heels. They are also sold by a Gap Inc. store, Piperlime. They are quite wallet friendly, being on sale for $50. And they perfectly match the outfit for the day, with just a touch of sequins (fully sequin shoes would be waaaaay too much.

Looking for the perfect present for your pooch? Here's a cute turtle neck it will surely love (or flop over and refuse to move in)! Though in a gross oversight Gap does not have a matching one for you, you can get it at Gap for just $30.
This necklace is so delicate and light looking, perfect for when you get bored of your pearls! The unique shape is fabulous, it looks like an accent for a couture runway show. Yet it's the very afforable price of $188 at dejarnette!

I'm always searching for a pair of cute black flats, and these seem to be the best so far. Kitten heels are just so darn cute! I love the pleating on the "vamp" (did you know it was called that? me neither) and the price is uber-reasonable. Get them at Zappos for $64.

Lingerie manufacturer Triumph International Japan has unveiled a new type of brassiere that can be converted into a shopping bag. Called the “No! Shopping Bag Bra” (NO! reji-bukuro bra), the environmentally-friendly lingerie is designed to promote the reduction of plastic bag consumption, a key objective of the revised Containers and Packaging Recycling Law hammered out by Japanese lawmakers in June.
Each year, Japanese shoppers receive an estimated 30 billion plastic shopping bags, which, in terms of the oil resources needed to produce them, amounts to two giant tankers full of oil (millions of barrels). About 30% of these bags are thrown away without being reused, and since the consumption of plastic shopping bags contributes to environmental problems such as increased energy usage, trash buildup, and global warming due to CO2 released in the garbage incineration process, there are urgent calls to reduce their usage.
When the bra is being worn, the “shopping bag” portions are folded away inside the bra cups, where they serve as extra padding. The bra quickly converts to a shopping bag by removing the bag portions from the cups and connecting the hooks on the bra’s underwire. The lace cups serve as decoration along with the shoulder straps, which are disconnected and tied to the top of the bag as ribbons.
The bra — available in red, blue, green, yellow and pink — is made from the Teijin Group’s ECOPET brand of polyester fiber, which has been recycled from plastic bottles through the company’s patented EcoCircle recycling system.
Triumph International Japan has a long history of developing eco-themed bras, with such creations as the Recycle PET Bra (1997), Eco-globe Bra (2004) and Warm Biz Bra (2005).

Check out these stunning collars, the ultimate chic way to keep your neck warm this winter! Unfortunately the red one is sold out, but there are other colors, yellow, gray, purple. Check out The Candy Thief's store on Etsy and get one of these for just $37.
You may have seen this dress at ShopBop, but I just found it for $80 ($308) off at StandardStyle! ShopBop's red and black version is still cheaper but I really love the brown and turqoise one. Should I buy this for my office holiday party??
UPDATE: I bought this dress and it is FABULOUS! If you're thinking about it, I highly recommend getting it!
So I went to a fashion line release party on Friday and had a very un-fasshonaburu moment of being carried out of the club. I'm told as one gets older you can't mix champagne with other types of alcohol... I will have to agree. Anyway, the clothes are very casual and not to my taste (reminds me of FUBU), but here's the website if you want to check it out yourself: Iky Clothing
As Black Friday looms ahead, it's good to prepare your shopping strategy. Even if you're going online, that doesn't mean you won't be fighting hordes of people. Here are some sites that let you know about the best deals and whatnot:

This is a great purse for nights out or even a cute way to wrap a present. But more importantly, with each one purchased, The Animal Rescue Site will fund 14 bowls of food for animals living in sanctuaries and shelters. So get one today for just $15 at the Animal Resuce Store... in fact, buy a bunch of them for coworker presents or the like!

What to get the woman who loves extreme sports and couture with an equal passion? Why the Chanel motocross boots, of course! For just $704, you get the ultimate in... different? Get them at Bluefly. But don't expect to actually wear them during the big race, they're technically just motocross-inspired.

Ahh, just before the holidays too. Pretend you're in NY and get some fabulous Kate Spade finds online! Your friends will be shocked at how much you spent and it can be our little secret. Up to 70% off and running now until the 17th.
This is a great concept that still needs some time to grow. But basically, you can search for bags, shoes, jewelry/watches by keyword, category or by an image. Thing is, you can't yet supply your own image, you have to choose one that the website provides. They do have good images though, all celebrities and their fabulous accesories. But you can only search through stuff 3rd party sellers have agreed to place on their site. Again, a decent amount of options, but I'd still like to see more. But check it out at www.like.com.

I don't usually wear t-shirts, but here's an adorable one that would look great under a blazer and with some jeans. CoCo Chanel is a oft forgotten fashion icon and we must remind fasshonaburus everywhere that there is more than Audry Hepburn and Jackie O. Get this at CoCo & Delilah NY for $42.

Here's an interesting shirt... a vintage button-down shirt is attached to a cotton tee for a layered look. I can't tell if they're really layered and sewn together or if it's one of those fake layered looks though. But definately cute, get it at RavinStyle.com for $88.

I tend to wear long wool jackets, but if you love skiing and lookig adorable at the same time, you simply must buy this coat! For some reason I can see a James Bond villianess wearing this in the Alps while drinking a martini. Get it at Bluefly for just $113.

Here's a great buy for only $25. Convertible gloves that can cover your fingertips like mittens, but underneath are fingerless gloves! A perfect present for smokers (not that yo want to encourage them). Get this pair at J. Crew, they come in green, pink, red, black, gray and white.
Trying to save money this holiday season, but need a few cute party dresses? Don't forget about Isaac Mizrahi's line at Target! Here's a great dress in a fun, bright color and it's only $30. Reading the reviews of it, supposedly it's a good material, lined, and very rockabilly retro!

After recently posting about a very unique and fabulous dress, I decided I need to know more about the designer. Laurel Wells is just straight-up amazing, officially my new favorite up and coming designer and I want everyone to go out and buy her stuff! Her play with shapes is just fantastic, she's very innovative and quirky and I love how she uses color!

Sometimes I have trouble finding unique and interesting pants to post about, mainly because if they're too different then they tend to look rediculous. Today I realized that I haven't posted any overalls and that's basically the only reason I'm posting these pants. They are cute though, not the 8-year-old feel that I get from most overalls. Get them at Urban Outfitters (online only) for $78.
This sweater is just too adorable, very indie rock in my opinion. Made out of recycled sweaters, it has tons of details, lace at the neck, a pocket on the back, buttons up a sleeve... just a very unique piece! It reminds me of Custo Barcelona, but is a lot cheaper - get it at Mod To Modern for $138.

Piperlime launched today, a new shoe website from Gap Inc. They have tons of really nice brands, which is neat because I was expecting the store to only sell it's own line, much like Old Navy, Gap, etc. But they have
Plus tooooons of others. Check it out!
