Peter Pilotto for Target

Peter Pilotto Collection for Target4

  The Peter Pilotto Collection for Target launched today! Stay tuned to get the inside scoop on this affordable line. Peter Pilotto is known for his bold prints and his collection for Target did not disappoint. The “mock skort” was by far my favorite piece in the collection.

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday …….

Black Friday shoe department

It’s that time of year again when we tend to go to herculean lengths to shop for the holidays. For the last few years I have avoided getting caught up in the craziness of the holiday madness but this year I actually ventured out to the mall on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.

Boxes were stacked up several feet high everywhere you could see. Cindy … [Read more...]
