Uggs on Sale

Yes, yet another post on shoes, but I can't help it! This is the time to buy!

Uggs Mini Bailey Button boots are 50%off at Stance Shoes...$ price in the mall! In fact, just next door at Journeys, they are on "sale" for $198! Black and Chestnut avail.

I'm not the biggest fan of Uggs. They are not the most flattering footwear, and they are a bit Uggly, but you cannot deny the cozy level of comfort they provide. They are a must for me at the ice rink...and I am there 3 times a week! Great for cold, dry outdoor walks too...I particularly like the Mini Bailey Buttons because they don't cut my legs off like the taller boot styles.

TOMS for women on Sale

Ladies turn! Seasonal TOMS are on sale this week at Stance Shoes and Boathouse stores. I was lured in by the 50%off sticker :)

Picked up a pair of women's Black Cord Pop edition for $32.50, reg. $65. I had a bit of trouble deciding between the red cord or black, but black won out in the end. I love the contrasting sole (cobalt blue for back and purple for the red ones). They also had them in Navy Cord as well.

Also on sale are various select flannel and woven versions, also $32.50 and $35 respectively for both men and women.

At Stance they have a great selection of youth toms for 50%off. I particularly love the blue/grey Cordones and Polka Dot Flannel Classics. Toddler sizes are now $20 and older youth are $22.50.

Clipless Curling Irons

We noticed our friend's hair the other day. "Hot Mama's" hair went from poker straight to awesome, perfect spirally curls in minutes. She owned a Enzo Milano curling wand...which then sent me on a hunt for my own!

Enzo clipless curling wands are highly reviewed, but the $125+ price tag was a little too hefty for me. I wondered if it was possible to find a similar, salon quality product for less, and the answer is yes!

I found a great curling wand from, of all places, Winners. It's an EvaNYC pink handled, tapered clipless curling wand. It's ceramic Tourmaline and heats up to 410•F in seconds and curls each section in about 5 seconds. The longer you leave it in, the curlier the curls...and it holds all day without any styling product!! In fact, it holds through a second day with pretty curls/waves. And the best thing is, it was priced at only $34.99. I love Winners!!
