Stay Fresh - Joe Fresh

I just discovered a new store - Joe Fresh. Not only are their clothes adorable, but they are completely affordable. It's priced similar to Forever 21 and H&M. If you're in NYC, they just opened the flagship store on fifth avenue at 43rd street. Check out some of my favs...

Embroidered Crew Neck Tee - $16

Rain Rain Go Away

With spring comes rain, and with rain, comes wet feet, yuck! I love my rain boots, but I feel silly wearing them with certain outfits, and a lot of times it's rainy in the morning and bright and sunny in the afternoon, and then I'm stuck lugging my rain boots around. Well, J. Crew Factory Store solves that problem with their super cute rainy day ballet slippers. I love the different colors, and I love that I can stash them in my bag later in the day. Not only are they cheap, but they're on sale, yay!

Rainy Day Ballet Flats - $34.50 (originally $39.50)

Birchbox - Presents Every Month

As of yesterday, spring has officially arrived, and this year, it actually feels like spring in NYC. I've visited New York in the spring in the past, and it was freezing, but the weather the past week has been absolutely perfect!

I wanted to tell y'all about Birchbox. I'm not sure if everyone is already familiar with it, but if not, it's basically like those "flower of the month," or "fruit of the month" type things, except it is for beauty samples. I haven't tried it, but I would love for people to comment if they have. I wonder if it's really worth the money.

Birchbox - the facts:
What? Deluxe beauty samples delivered to your door.
When? You'll receive a package from Birchbox once a month.
Why? Because beauty samples are awesome. You can try new products, take them on trips, share them with your friends/family. This would also be a really cool present for someone.
How much? Only $10/month. Apparently, you can get one month free.

If you find something you like or even love, you can buy the full size product from Birchbox. They offer free shipping for orders over $50. Brands include Kiehls, Stila, Smashbox, Carol's Daughter, and Keratase.

Preppy On A Budget

I was at brunch in Hell's Kitchen yesterday, and the girls were talking about this fabulous store owned by Tory Burch's ex husband. The store is called C. Wonder, and it's totally wonderful! It's Tory Burch inspired, but priced cheaper. If you're ever in Soho, you must stop by and check out the Spring St. location. Check out some of my C. Wonder picks...

Bright Skinny Jeans in Flamingo $88

Colorblock Clutch

Colorblock has been in style for the past couple years, and I'm a big fan. Living in NYC, I feel like I get lost in the sea of black, but even thought I wear a ton of black, it's nice to mix things up with a colorful clutch. I love this one from Target, because you can choose from different colors and the price is perfect.

Mossimo Colorblock Blue Envelope Clutch - $16.99

Mossimo Colorblock Pink Envelope Clutch - $16.99

Accessorize With Warby Parker Glasses

You can credit hipsters with making glasses cool again. I don't even need to wear glasses, and I bought two pairs of hispter inspired glasses while wandering around the east village after one too many mugs of japanese beer. Then the other day I realized my Ralph Lauren sunglasses (scored at the outlet mall) are all scratched up since I keep throwing them into my bag without the case, so I came across Warby Parker. I've since "liked" them on Facebook and told all my friends about them. I can't wait to visit their showroom in Soho!

Warby Parker is the TOMs of glasses. Not only are their glasses really stylish and affordable (under $100), but they donate a pair for every pair purchased. How awesome is that? Since I don't actually need glasses, they're out of my price range, but I plan to buy a pair of sunglasses. If you don't live near a showroom, don't worry! They'll ship you five pairs (yes five) and you can try them on and send the other four back in a prepaid envelope. What have you got to lose? Check them out! Here are some of my favs...

The Monroe - love the round Harry Potter looking shape of these!

Preston - I think this shape is so classic and timeless!

Mabel - love the geometric shape of these!
