extra extra

A video? Yes. A video!  I wanted to post about my thrifted finds from my trip to Lakewood, but didn't want to be picture happy.  So here goes my first video. 

something good from Stacia Momany on Vimeo.

key notes:

- Shopping 2nd hand puts a BIG impact on your closet and a tiny impact on your wallet.

-Thanks to my Nana & Cheryl for the blog merch!

-Next week I'm starting 2 classes at church: Financial Peace University & Bethel.  Also Im temporarily filling in at different office for the month of October at work.  That being said my lovely sister and the fashionable Kelly will be guest posting for me on Monday & Tuesday.

Have a wonderful weekend!

personal shopping: Abby

We hit up: Old Navy, Forever 21 and H&M.  For some reason Forever 21 was being a bit lame and wouldn't allow me to take pictures. 

Old Navy- she purchased the jeans and purple top. I talked her into trying on these jeans and thank goodness she did they look awesome!

H&M- She didn't purchase either but they are both on her wish list.

H&M- She purchased the black silk blouse.  She has a mustard skirt and plaid skirt seen here that will look great with this top. 

What outfit is your favorite?
Abby will be back in October with a few of her favorite Fall outfits. 
Happy Thursday,

a daydream kind of day

I'm back as I promised with a lovely post on my day in Cleveland!  My friend Renee' lives in Lakewood and had 6 consignment stops mapped out for the day! I'm going to post about my favorite 2!

Chelsea's Vintage Clothing
Rows and rows of clothing all the way up to the ceiling.  My favorite part? Everything is organized by decade and item of clothing. I was all about 60's skirts, tops, dresses. 


I loved this section!

I said up to the ceiling, believe me now?

shoes galore!

Very clean and organized, I was very impressed.

beautiful shoes

wonderful gems!

rows of hats!

We went to Sweet Melissa's for lunch.

fried green tomatoes.

Our lunch. My sandwich was BBQ pork with coleslaw and sweet potato fries on it!

We ended our day at Tremont Art festival.
Renee' introduced me to some of her very nice friends, we walked around the festival and stopped at a few shops. Perfect way to end the day.

I would of loved to purchase this beauty, a bit out of the budget though.

lover her boots, with socks and summer dress. cute combo, and she let me take her picture!

beautiful home.

nice back drop for a photo shoot.

I had a great time!  It was so nice to get away for the day and hang out with an old friend.  Thank you Renee' for having me! Cant wait to do it again.

Ill be back next week with my purchases from the grand opening and consignment stores. Along with a post on Abby's shopping adventure.  Until then I'm going to kick off my 31st bday weekend with relaxation.
Happy Weekend!

The Limited grand opening: Part 2 (giveaway closed)

An interview with Tori VP of Marketing & Mary store manager was one of the many highlights of my day.  It really felt like talking to two girlfriends they were both very sweet and answered my questions with such depth.  Tori had mentioned that she checked out my blog and that she was looking forward to seeing my outfit that I purchased on here!  It just warmed my heart!

Elissa, Tori, Mary & myself!
Question #1
How do you encourage creative thinking & dedication?
Tori answered
Don't accept status quo.  Start with biggest thing you want. Don't think small. Don't be inhibited by a budget. 

Question #2
How do you help new employees understand the goals of The Limited?
Mary answered
It starts with the interview.  Applicants must have shared philosophy of encouraging and empowering women. 

Question #3
What is the most essential accessory?
Mary and Tori answered
Mary: Black blazer.  (This is when I admitted I don't own a black blazer)
Tori: A great handbag.

Question #4
What do you see the biggest trend being for Winter?
Mary and Tori answered
Plaid, sixties and seventies inspired patterns.

After the interview I grabbed the items I had been eyeing up and tried them on.  

Your door is personalized while your trying on clothes. I tired on 3 outfits! I would of loved to purchase all 3 but ended up with an outfit (to be posted soon) that Ashley one of the stores associates (very friendly) picked out for me.
So on to the part you have been waiting for!  A $50 gift card to The Limited. 
1. You must be a follower of my blog.
2. Leave a comment on this post on what you would purchase with your gift card.
Giveaway will be open until Friday, September 23rd 2011.

A special thanks to Cari Steiner & The Limited for the invite. It was a day to remember!

The Limited grand opening: Part 1

This was my first event that I have attended and I left thinking I could do this every day!  I gave myself over 2 hours to get ready because I was so nervous on what to wear and getting to the event on time.  Needless to say I was the first blogger there!

Right away I introduced myself to Jayme and shortly after met Kelly! I was so excited to meet other bloggers from Toledo!  Shortly after one of my girlfriends that I had no idea was going to be there walked in!  Elissa who has recently taken over Toledo moms blog, what a wonderful surprise! 

First thing on the agenda was the ribbon cutting ceremony. 

Mary the Westfield Franklin Park store manager gave a run through of the layout of the store and the direction for each display of clothing. 

Ill be back tomorrow with Q&A from my interview with Mary and Tori.  I will also have dressing room pics and details on how to sign up for a chance to win the $50 gift card from The Limited. 
Thanks for visiting,
Stacia Lee

What a wonderful weekend!

Friday I attended the grand opening of The Limited at Westfield Franklin park.  I had such a great time!  I met other Toledo blogger's, purchased a few items with my $50 gift card and had an awesome interview with the staff! 

Kelly, Myself & Jayme.

Checkout their blogs!

Saturday I woke up bright and early and headed to Lakewood for a day of shopping with my girlfriend Renee'.  We had a wonderful time! We hit up 6 consignment stores, we had lunch at a yummy place and went to a art festival in Tremont Ohio.  I didn't realize how awesome Cleveland is!

Renee' & I
The sign behind us says "save the earth, its the only planet with chocolate"
(And yes I'm wearing the same sweater 2 days in a row)

Ill be back this week with more details on both outings and info on how to win the $50 gift card from The Limited.
Hope you have an umbrella today!

This is Amanda. She is one of my best friends, and she is getting married in June 2012!  She asked me to be her maid of honor and I am thrilled!  I'm looking forward to evenings of preparing for the big day.  Tonight we start with checking out a bridal boutique.  She has decided on light pink and lime green as her colors.  Light pink is another one of my best friends, life is good!

Hope your Thursday is going swell!  I'm off work tomorrow with big plans for The Limited grand opening! CANT WAIT!  Look forward to details very soon on how to win a $50 gift card!
