TheProwl.com looks a bit like Pinterest, and that may well be on purpose. Unlike Pinterest, The Prowl has a focus: its unique "Ask and Answer" section encourages you to employ the brains of others to find deals and make better fashion decisions than most mere humans with jobs and lives ever could. So while Pinterest is a great place to obsess over the infinite aspirational scroll, The Prowl is for paring down possibilities, and making a purchase. In contrast to Pinterest and related sites like The Hunt, which largely market themselves to the female demo, The Prowl's pragmatic approach to commerce can be appreciated by the most shopping-phobic individuals of any gender.
I tend to hold on to
clothes until they're falling apart – stains on the cuff, rips at the
seam, and faded. In that condition, I don't feel right donating them to a
charity shop. But I also don't feel right just tossing old clothes in
the trash and adding to our ever-growing landfills. So I end up with
bags of unwanted clothes taking up space in my closet.
I stumbled across the bags while I was spring cleaning. Instead of just
tossing them back in the closet and forgetting for another year, I
decided to do find a way to re-purpose the clothes. Turns out, old
clothes have plenty of new uses, and I've saved a bunch of money reusing
something to boot.
For many of us the holiday season is a time of parties. And, of course, parties mean dressing up. For day three of the Twelve Days of Giveaways, we have a prize package that will help you add some festive flair to your wardrobe.
This fall is a great season to stock up on trends that are classic, and flattering to so many different body types. One trend I am adoring, and know will still look chic years from now is the return of the cape.
I know, many of you when you hear "cape" may think of Superman and
Sherlock Holmes. However, this fall's cape is far more elegant,
versatile and figure-flattering than a red satin or ankle-length number
famous made famous by your favorite storybook hero. A cape is a great
piece to wear during transitional weather--you can slip over a tee and
jeans for a trip to the market, over a suit or dress with ease, or use
it as a layering piece with a heavy sweater or fitted jacket for
additional warmth come winter. Capes work on slight and curvy frames,
petite and tall women, and will work even if you are between sizes (or expecting!).
Here are some of my favorite budget-friendly capes for this fall--styles that are kind to your figure, your lifestyle and your wallet.
