Fashion Friday: DIY Presents

By Stephanie Saviola

Warning: This is a Valentine’s Day post. Sorry to all the haters, but even if you are single on this holiday you could give a little to those special friends in your life. Here are two of my favorite bloggers Emily of CupcakesandCashmere.com and MrKate.com with some unique and adorable ideas for DIY presents. I especially love the conversation heart cookies and look forward to making them this weekend.

Emily | cupcakes and cashmere

“A couple of days ago, my friend Brittany (from Walnut Paperie) came over for a little card-making session, just in time for Valentine’s Day. I think certain aspects of the Hallmark holiday are lame (like over-priced dinners and red roses), but I’ll never tire of making pretty notes to give to friends. She came prepared with beautiful card stock, heart cut-outs, glitter in every color imaginable, watercolors (such a fun, unexpected touch), hot pink twine, and sparkly tape. Here are a few of my favorite cards we made, and you can find the templates to make your own here.”

Valentine’s Day Stationery

Several Variations

“I have a rather unhealthy obsession with Conversation Hearts, the candies that come out every year around Valentine’s Day with messages on each one. They don’t taste particularly good, but they bring back memories of awkward parties from elementary school and I never can resist buying myself a box each year. This time around though, I decided to embrace the tradition with a twist. I made my normal sugar cookies (recipe for cookies and icing here), made the icing in the same pastel colors of the candies, and wrote my own little notes.”

“i was thinking about the ladies out there who want to give their man a Valentine’s themed gift but don’t want it to be too “girly.” i thought of what i would gift Joey and was inspired by his new-found love of Old Fashioneds (bourbon drink) and my obsession with nips (little liquor bottles – i love anything miniature)!”

Fashion Friday: Jason Wu for Target

By Stephanie Saviola

I love when designers collaborate with Target. It gives you the chance to grab some of the latest styles for less than half of what you would pay in a department store or boutique. Target’s newest collaboration features designer Jason Wu and debuts on February 5. The collection ranges from $19.99 to $59.99 and contains 53 pieces, from clothing to handbags. Wu said his inspiration for the collection is “the American girl in Paris.” Many of you shoppers might remember the Missoni fiasco , but it’s too early to tell if the Wu collaboration will be another ordeal and site crash.

Fashion Friday: Splurge vs. Steal

By Stephanie Saviola

The sales have died down now that the holiday shopping madness has ended, but that doesn’t mean you have to dish out big bucks for your favorite looks. You can usually find most high-end pieces in similar styles for much less if you shop around. Sometimes you’ll have to sacrifice material i.e. a faux leather jacket for $50 versus a real one for $200 and up. However, if they are trendier pieces, rather than closet staples that will last, it isn’t worth spending tons of money on.
