Crazy Gadgets That Work, Perfect Fit Button

First and foremost, No, I did not get one free, and was not paid for this. I just happen to loose and gain 5 pounds regularly, and needed something other than a safety pin. So, I ran over to Walgreens, because they have the As Seen on TV stuff, and picked these up. Guess what? They work. I have even washed the pants and they stay in. I am sure you should probably remove them before washing, but I forgot. I wouldn't put them on kids pants as if they come off they will poke you. I believe there is a disclaimer for that or something. But, for us adults, they are perfect. You get like 10. I have only lost one, I don't think I had it on good, and it was on a side pair of pants and I think it caught on my purse. It didn't poke me, just the button fell off somewhere and I was left with the inside.

That's my post for crazy gadgets that work.

Black Sequin Flats for less than $20

Black Sequin Flats for $12.99. Yes, that was spelled right. $12.99. At Target. The cute flower ones, $9.87 on sale. Run, don't walk.

How can you go wrong with a classic ballet flat? You can't. These aren't made to last, but they are made to wear about a month or so. Perfect for summer. If you scuff them up, head on back to Target for more. I love them so much, I may have to go get another pair of the sequin ones. I have already worn them twice and love them.

As Dolly Parton said on Steel Magnolias: ....not a direct quote, but pretty close.."I wear an 8 but an 8 1/2 feels so good I buy a 9..."

Summer White Shirts

Years ago, I saw a picture of Carolina Herrera in a fabulous white shirt. Much like the picture below. I was struck by how amazing and classy she looked. I do love her designs too. I have seen many interviews etc. by her and she always has on an amazing white shirt, what can I say about the bangles? Love them too. Anyway, I digress, it is about the white shirt. I currently have 5 or more in my closet. I love them, I search for them, the amazing white shirt. I have several that are amazing, and I think of Carolina Herrera everytime I put one on.

So this is not a post about Carolina Herrera. It is a post to inspire you to find an amazing white shirt. One that you will not only wear in the summer, but all year long, (which you can do you know). So go forth and hunt for that great white shirt.

I am sorry I don't know where this photo is from.
