I love the idea of getting recurring fun emails in my inbox, like Daily Candy (which I get for three cities - Miami, Dallas, and NYC) but the truth is that I often don't have the right moment to spare to read each one. I recently signed up for The Zoe Report, Rachel Zoe's version of Daily Candy, in an effort to keep myself informed. This email is a great way to stay in touch with what's going on. It's a quick, fun read. She features a single item each day, always high end, and also features a "Parallel Universe" item, which is a similar version of the real thing, but at much lower cost. I'm not sure I love the term, but I do like the idea. I had my own PU experience yesterday that I'd like to share with you now.
I recently fell in love with the below headband at J. Crew, but didn't buy it for the following reasons:
1) I have a big head that most headbands don't fit well.
2) I don't look at headbands as an investment piece, and $18.50 for one is a bit steep in my mind.
I stopped in Forever 21 yesterday on a whim and found this lookalike for $3.80. The best part about it is that it fits incredibly comfortably, unlike it's pricy counterpart above.
Some of you long-timers know that my little sister, the Baby Fashionista, used to write a blog somewhat similar to TZR, where she featured one basic item per post and showed it in different designs by a vary of designers. Her posts were funny and very personable - just like her. I'm happy to announce that she's back with a vengance - and a new blog! An Outfit A Day Keeps The Fashion Police Away chronicles her daily outfits, which are far more interesting than the ones I post on Twitter. Promise.
Have a fashionable Thursday!
