Happy Holidays

Monday, December 22, 2008

Dear Shop In Chic,

I would love to change my hair color to something fun
and different, but how can I do it at home? I know that
there are a ton of haircolor kits out there, but which
product would be best? Plus, do you have any tips on
doing it yourself?


Dear Need-A-Change,

Looking for a change for 2009? Changing your color is a great
start, but it can also be intimidating, especially if you have
never colored your hair before. If you did not mention that you
wanted to do it at home, I would highly recommend going to the
salon. Heck, I still would recommend that, or having a trusty
friend color your hair with salon quality products(which is
something I do. Thanks Sarah!)

First off, what color do you want and how many shades compared
to your own natural hair color. If it is drastically lighter
or darker than your own, then visit a salon or have a good pal
color your hair for you. If you want something two/three shades
darker or lighter then buy something permanent. If you just want
a slight adjustment then go with a semi or demi-permanent color
that will wash out in a month or less.

When you shop for a box of hair color, remember to look for the
color chart on the back or side of the box, as it will show you
a realistic view of how the new color will look on your natural
color. Once you made the commitment(or bought the kit!), make
sure you thoroughly read the instructions twice. And don't
forget to do a test strand to make sure it exactly what you
want, and even a skin test if its called for. After all you don't
want to color your hair and discover an allergic reaction!

Here are some choice kits to choose from(see above):
Clairol Herbal Essences Knockout Blonde(Shade 16) available at and Boots

Clairol Blackberry-Burgandy Black(Shade 38) available at and Boots

Garnier 100% ColorVibrant Colors by Nutrisse Dark Golden Brown(Shade 433) available at Walgreens and Boots

We know of your dislike of layers, so what would you do to
keep yourself warm?

-Miss Grunge

Dear Miss Grunge,

I don't mind layers so much only if the look is styled right.
Like for instance, you don't want to wear too many layers if
they make you look bulky. Its okay to wear thin layers, and
if you want, a jacket over a long sleeve top. Wear what you
are comfortable with and let your sense of style dictate.
Never wear anything that you have to think twice about.

Dear Shop In Chic:
I know the holidays are coming and I really want to look
glamourous for the parties I will attend, yet I hate high
heels. So what other options do I have?

Clueless About Footwear

Dear Clueless:
One thing that people always equate with all time beauty
and glamour is high heels. Heck people even wear them to
glam up the casualness of jeans! But just because most
women wear high heels doesn't mean all women do. And
you know what? There is nothing wrong with that! Rest
assure that there are plenty of other options to choose
from, including flats! There are plenty of styles that
are just, if not more, purely elegant. And if you're
planning on dancing the night away, flats are choice.
Besides who really dances in heels anyway? You'll be
the envy of the holiday party.

So what are some good brands to look for? I like the
styles of Stuart Weitzman, like his "Buckballet" gold
flats? I also like Steve Madden's "Kobraa" pink skimmers.
I also find Office to have some pretty darn cute and
stylish flats for holiday parties. Like their "Call
Me Back Bow" black leather flats and "Concave Back
Strap" sandal style blue flats.

Just remember that when you're shopping for dressy
flats, look for special details such as sequins or
embossed leather. You want to shoes to look rather
special not so casual.

Both Stuart Weitzman and Steve Madden shoes are available at

Both Office shoes are available at Office

If you have any questions remember to drop me off an e-mail at
shopinchic83 at Please mention ASKSHOPINCHIC in the
SUBJECT line. Thank you ahead of time!

Do you need a new Christmas gift idea?

With the holidays coming closer each and every single day,
it can be a bit of a burden to choose what gifts to buy.
You want to find gifts for everybody and some people are
just so hard to shop for. You don't want to spend your
entire weekend at the mall looking for stuff to only
know that its either going to be returned or even *gulp*
regifted later on! So before you decide to say give up
on your holiday shopping, I got a few ideas that will
please everyone, so all you have to do is tally
up everyone on your list to mulitply the gifts! It won't
get any easier than these ideas.

PS, stay tuned for more of my upcoming Gift Guides for
more Christmas Gift Ideas and browse through my blog for
previous installments and much more!

Why give a gift card when you could give a Gifts gift
card? A traditional gift card is usually from one store
but a Gifts card can be used at a choice of merchants
and services including restaurants and hotels. Choose
one store or choose several and you can even email it
for faster delivery. And best of all they never expire.

Check out for more information and a list of redeemable stores and services.

And for my readers in the UK, there is the Voucher Express
VEX Gift Certificate. Give them the certificate and you can
relax and let them choose exactly the gift voucher they want.
You can redeem for your choice of gift vouchers from over
25,000 retail stores and services all over the UK and Ireland.

Check out Voucher Express for more information
and a list of redeemable stores.

Now how's that for an easy Christmas gift idea!

The Style Meme

I am new to this whole Meme concept so please forgive
me if I am not doing this right.

First off, what is a fashion blog doing with a Meme? Well a
meme can be about almost anything, so why not style?

P.S. please feel free to copy and post on your own blog, just
leave me a link so I can read it!

The Style Meme

Describe your personal style?

Actually I don't have a personal style, I just wear what I
like. I don't follow trends and celebrities, because not I know
that not everyone can dress like the same stars. I like to wear
what I think is comfortable and stylish. I look at some celebs
and I think "What the...?"

What does Fashion mean exactly?

I gradutated from a Fashion Design/Merchandising program
last summer so I know the answer! Fashion is basicially more
than what we wear, its more than style, its more than a time

Fashion really is everything that includes not only clothes,
but personal taste and cultures as well. Fashion is supposed
to be fun, its an art form. Express yourself!

Why are we slaves to fashion?

Why do you wear killer high heels? Because they look great
and give you confidence! Sometimes we do weird things for the
sake of looking good(like spending a lot on one article of
clothing) and maybe thats a good thing, maybe its a bad thing!
You tell me!

I love style but I do think we need to be a little more practical

Happy Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

This is a special edition as we have Black Friday coming after
Thanksgiving, and then we have Cyber Monday which is on the 1st
of December(which is also this upcoming Monday).

Black Friday Deals
Are you shopping on Black Friday? Its the busiest day for most
retailers of all sorts, and most stores claim that the prices
and doorbusters you will find on sale that day(or even weekend)
are the lowest of the year. If you do a little research you
will find some extraordinary deals, but the best deals will
be scattered throughout the holiday season and throughout
the year, so rest assure that you don't always have to go
shopping on that day. So what are the best deals? I'll share
them with you right now! Remember to check your local ads for
even more sales.

The Limited-
Shop before 12:00 am and get a FREE SCARF/WRAP with every $50
you spend. Shop after 12:00 am and you get a FREE SCARF/WRAP
with every $75 purchase.

All day you will enjoy 30% Off your entire purchase, all pants
and jeans are 30% Off, select tops start at $19.50, handbags
and jewelry are 25% Off!

Old Navy-
This sale last Friday through Sunday. Sweaters and Knits are $15,
Graphic Print Tees are only $5.00, Denim 5 Pocket Jeans are 50%
off, Fleece Pants and Hoodies are $10 each!

30% Off everything until 1:00 pm. After 1:00 pm you can still save

Cyber Monday Deals
For those of us who don't want to leave the comfort of our home,
Cyber Monday is a great idea! All the benefits of Black Friday
deals minus the heavy crowds of people. Unfortunately finding
Cyber Monday deals are a bit more elusive, as most deals are
not listed as "The Biggest Sale of the Year". You have to do
search and compare for these bargains.

To search for the great bargains keep an eye on your favorite
stores, emails, and websites like DealTaker.

If you have any Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals you'd like to
share please respond! Happy shopping!

I love jeans(particularly low-rise styles), but I am not too
keen on belts though. Why is that? I do like some belts but I
just find that most belts are a bit bulky and restrictive. So
what do I do when I wear a pair of pants that don't seem to
fit as well as they should, like when they have the tendency
to keep falling? I wear the revolutionary IsABelt.

It is thin clear piece of plastic that fastens over your pants
like a belt, yet it looks and feels as if you were not wearing
a belt. Its real fashion freedom! Its almost as if you're not
wearing a belt and it can be worn with any color! You can bend
and crouch over freely without any embarrassment. You will no
longer have to pull up your pants or worry about exposing your
derriere. This is truly amazing and no fashionista should be
without one!

Select your size from small(which adjusts to size 6), medium
(adjusts to size 10), large(adjusts to size 14) or plus(which
adjusts up to 50 inches).

They come in four sizes for women(including plus sizes), and
even sizes for children and men!

You can buy IsABelt at fine boutiques or even for
$16.95(plus size cost $17.95).

For the list of boutiques that includes the United States and United Kingdom.

Bobbi Goes For Glitter

Bobbi Brown always has the most innovative makeup in the
most pretty of colors. I love everything in her lines of
cosmetics, skincare and even fragrance. Right now I am
all about Glitter Lip Balm, which is actually part of
the Copper Diamond look of the holidays 2008.

Glitter Lip Balm
Yes it appears that I have an affinity for limited
edition cosmetics(yes sadly this is limited edition).
This is a lot like their regular lip balm but it also
contains glitter and pearl pigments that gives you a
sexy pout just in time for your holidays. Comes with
a mirrored compact and will be just the thing for a
stocking stuffer!

They come in three glam all new shades:Pink Crystal
which is a warm pink, Crystal Diamond which is more
like a baby pink, and Copper Diamond which is like
a warm copper shade.

Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Balm is available at Bobbi Brown for $19.00

Bobbi Brown Glitter Lip Balm is available at Bobbi Brown for £13.00

According to the LA Times, nails will get a new edge with
the hottest new color gray! You can read more about it

Some of you may think gray nails are little too weird or
maybe even a little too juvenile, but I think it might be
just the nail color for the upcoming holiday parties(more
about holiday party style later). Here are some of my
choice picks for gray nail polishes and lacquers

Tell me what you think!

OPI Sheer Your Toys is a pale version of this gray
day trend. I would pick this color for anyone who is
either a little wary of this current trend or even
older women who want to remain more sophisticated.
available at Brighton Beauty Supply for $5.95
available at Beauty Expert for £9.75.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Concrete Jungle is the rock star
of these shades. Its a classic gray that will surpass all
other gray nail colors.

Here is something new and very wonderful from Estee Lauder, the
new Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang. Its a very intriguing
and feminine oriental fragrance with graceful notes of Vanilla,
warm wintery notes of Sandalwood, and of course Amber as the
three base notes. The middle notes are a little more intense
with sensual Cinnamon, deep Insence, and the delicate Rose
of Bulgaria. The top notes add a little something extra
with Ylang Absolute, Geranium Oil, and Italian Bergomot.

All in all, this is a warm yet delicate fragrance that is
perfect for winter.

Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang Eau de Parfum Spray starts at $65 and its available at Estee Lauder.
Private Collection Amber Ylang Ylang Eau de Parfum Spray starts at £50 and its

Ebay For Real Deals

I am so into designer clothes, but I am so not into the prices.
So where do I go for a great deal on designer pieces and
accessories? Ebay! Sure I like Yoox, Bluefly and Net A
Porter but a real deal is to be found at Ebay!

While Ebay is mostly known as a auction site, in which you bid
along with other people for a certain item, you also have the
option to Buy It Now which is the real deal. You just have to
learn how to navigate it for deals.

For instance, I found two great must haves at great prices, a
Juicy Couture Tracksuit and a Dooney & Bourke Clutch, both of
which are new and under $50!

1-Once you're on the Ebay site, start searching. You
can choose between Search or Advanced Search, I recommend
the Advanced Search simply because you can select
settings to the filter, thus making the search
much quicker.

2-If you've got something in mind type it in the box. For
better results select Exact Words, Exact Order. Select
the Category and Buy It Now. If there's anything else
you want or need, select those options too. Then
click Search.

3-Once you've clicked Search a window should pop up and
check the location your searching. Make adjustments
according to how far you think it should be shipped.

4-Once you reach to the pages, search from Low to High.
When you look in the first two pages you should find a

5-Remember that if you don't find what you are looking
for, keep checking every so often as items and prices
tend to change.
