Style for a Cause

Ford (yes, the car company) has a campaign called Warriors in Pink. As their site says, "Ford and your Ford dealer are recruiting Warriors to help ramp up the fight against breast cancer." I'm all for the cause and they have loads of things for sale! My favourite is the Woven Scarf:

Get the Warrior Woven Scarf for $38.00& 100% of net proceeds ($24.58 each) goes to Susan G. Komen for the Cure--- be stylish and support the cause! What are you waiting for?

*thanks to Jenna for finding this:)

I found this company ages ago and purchased a bunch of tee's from them in the winter with my former housemates! As students, we were all about the combined shipping!! Anyway, they are great tee's... slightly off the wall, but never the less cute, funky and stylish. I can honestly say I have never seen anyone rocking the one's I have!! Make sure you peep Threadless often because they have super awesome sales once and a while!

Here are a few of my favs that are in stock:
Let's Go Parasoling is $20!

Le Romantique is also $20!

Puppet Ballet is $15 (that's totally a steal!)

So the deal is they are gone when they are gone! So if you love one and can't live without it... get it now! They do reprint, but not that often!

Happy Shopping! Sorry I showed you, because you will probably haveee to buy one now :) and if you feel the need to purchase one for you-- perhaps you want to buy one for me too? ;)
P.S. When it asks, don't forget to tell them mindydorff sent you!

Some of the Funkiest Shoes!

It's not very often that you come across a company that makes shoes you can walk a mile in. I own a million pairs of shoes and can last an entire night in just few of them... no one wants to spend the night sitting, when they could be dancing the night away!

I was super excited to find FarylRobin shoes last summer at one of my favourite downtown stores. Stylish. Comfy. Goes with everything!-- I was in heaven! When you find a company this good, you have to share it with everyone!

Here are a few of my favourites!

This one is called Lola-- dress it up, or dress it down! I love the pink version ("flesh") and think it would be divine with a form fitting LBD or with a cute pair of jeans!

The Entworth. Love the name! Love the look! Just imagine wearing these when your out dancing the night away... you'll actually be able to walk home and still look super cute!

Aura in "mermaid" might be my favourite from this collection! I can just picture my self wearing these with great summer dress. I am such a sucker for gold and aqua together-- it's the epitome of summer, isn't it?!

Check out the rest of the collection at FarylRobin
...you won't be dissapointed!!

The Colours of Fall!

Woah, I just wrote the word "fall" and we aren't even in August! But it's true, fall is right around the corner and that means it's nearly time to put the shorts away and pull out the sweater and pants. Scary thought. BUT rather than focus on that, I will focus on the colour of fall!

Forget Orange, Yellow and Red... the colour of fall is Purple!

It seems like everything now comes in purple and why not? It goes with most colours, it's classy and can be dressed up or down. Here's a few suggestions at different price points to check out!

Wild shoes from Go Jane & Great Tube dresses from Forever21:

$34.99 for crazy shoes your bff won't have! $19.80 for the dress AND you can still afford a few drinks when you wear them out on the town!

Dainty Bracelets from F21 & Purple Fall Coat from Nordstrom

$4.80 for the cute bracelets...why not? At $109.90 (SALE) the coat is very much do-able!

You can finish off the look with Urban Decay Purple Haze and DKNY Delicious Night both at Sephora

$16 for the eyeshadow and $68 for the perfume... smells sweet to me :)

Do you think you'll jump on the purple bandwagon?

Need to Have it!

This weeks NEED TO HAVE IT! Comes in the form of a long Pearl Necklace!

Most recentely popularized by Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City (see above), the pearl necklace is making a come back in a big way! It's versatile, funkier than it's shorter version and down right cute! It will be sure to add that extra something that your outfit may be lacking!

If you want the style a la Carrie Bradshaw try:

LOW: at JC PENNY the Freshwater Precious Pearl Necklace is available (to our American friends) for $18.99 (what a steal!!!)

MEDIUM: Pearl Paradise The "City" necklace (clever name) is available for $495

HIGH: Mikimoto Pearls The actual pearls worn by SJP and at $11,900-- keep dreaming, girl!

I also suggest checking out the shops this weekend! There are some GREAT sales on right now as it is sadly the end of the summer clothing season! I picked up a long pearl necklace for 50% off at a store I would never usually go in! That being said, your mission is to check out stores you have never been in! (and report back to me about what you found!)

The Good Things to Come!

This is the BRAND new section of Pretty Other Things! I am pleased to announce "FIND IT FASHION!", the section dedicated to clothes and shoes!! If you have any input, I would love to hear!

I'm going to try and post about SALES (my favourite), On the cheap outfits (HELLO, FOREVER 21!) and those shoes that I will never be able to afford!
