I have a passion for fashion. While I tend to go all out on shoes and bags, and the occasional designer dress, sometimes I like to incorporate less expensive pieces into my wardrobe that work with clothes I already have, to freshen up my style - without breaking the bank. I don't expect these trendy pieces to last for forever; but that's ok because they are worth the mileage they get before they go out of style. Longevity is what I have my high quality wardrobe staples for anyway.
In the past, I've found trendy pocket book friendly pieces at Tidestore http://www.tidestore.com, and they have given me the opportunity to select two items to "try and tell" about. I made my wish list and checked it twice, now it's up to you to pick which ones you think Tidestore will select for me to try. They'll be sending their choices to me in the coming weeks, and I'll give them a whirl, and report back on which items I received as well as the comfort, wearability, and my opinions of them, too!
So check out my wish list below and then vote for the two items you think that Tidestore will bring to my door. Pick two and comment below with their outfit numbers and your email address. Or you can tweet me two numbers @ladyinredblog and I'll record your guesses. If you are the first person to guess right, I'll send you some goodies, too, from the RED hot store!
My Tidestore Wish List:
Stunning Slim Bowknot Empire Waist Skirt
Item Code: 10784127
I've always had a thing for polka dots. They are feminine and eye catching. The white on black look will go great with both white or black tops I already own. The high empire waist makes you look slim, too! What separates this skirt from the rest is the big bow detail on the front. Love it!
Simple Slim Maxi Empire Waist Candy Color Column/Sheath Skirt
Item Code: 10604309
I love pencil skirts. It's a hemline that never goes out of style; but I want something in a color that won't bore me like basic black. I'd love to own this particular piece in rose. It's a great color for Spring and Summer that works with my new SJP metallic pink sandals as well!
Exquisite Striped V-neckline Sleeveless Dress with White Belt
Item Code: 04012331
This is a classic spring look that has a great shape that despite the wide horizontal stripes, is cinched at the waist to create a slimming silhouette. It can take me from casual to an interview if I slip a jacket on top of it.
Rhinestone Double-C Buckles Long Sleeves Black T-shirt
Item Code: 10892693
I love the bare shoulder style on this classic black form-fitting shirt. As many of you know, I am a bartending instructor and also bartend at events. This would be perfect for me to wear at an upscale nighttime event or party while I work.
Cool All-Matched Leopard Print Skirt
Item Code: 10872430
Animal prints are so "in" right now. I love the cut on this skirt. It's flowy, flirty, and feminine. I have a black skirt with white and red polka dots on it that has a similar style and I LOVE it. It makes me feel like kicking up my heels when I wear it.
Newest Red Off-the-shoulder with Girdle Evening Peplum Midi Dress
Item Code: 10781306
TheLadyinRed can never have too many red dresses. I love the strapless look and the clean lines on this one. The simple gold belt comes with the dress and is the focal point of this outfit that makes the style really work.
Alluring One-shoulder Mini Dress With Colorful Feather-Print 2527-1
Item Code: 03842491
I don't like wearing black dresses. Black tends to wash me out. Plus, at most parties, restaurants, and events, more than fifty percent of the women in the room are wearing - you guessed it - BLACK! I'm the kind of lady who likes to stand out in the crowd, so this dress is perfect for me. Bright colors complement my skin tone, too.
Fancy Form-fitting Stretch Mini Dress with Ethnic-print Green Pink Fashion Clubwear
Item Code: 10711784
I love dresses with prints. Most of the time you see a sea of solid colors in a room, and I like colorful patterns. This is a simple sheath that would work for Summer with a few bold accessories. I already have all the staple colors in my closet, so I'm looking for something to spice it up!
Glamour Wing of Butterfly Hem Two Pieces Set Rose Bikini
Item Code: 10917017
I love the new style bikinis with flounce or fringe on the top. It enhances what you've got, and I'm all about that. The string tie sides are nice because you can adjust how tight it ties so it won't cut into your hips. The bright pink color will look gorgeous with a tan, too.
Debonair Yellow Best Quality Ruffled Halter Swimwear
Item Code: 10939523
I give the halter top with molded, lined cups a big thumbs up. It gives enough support and fills out the bustline, while making sure that if things get a little chilly, nothing is revealed unintentionally, if you get my drift. I like the three string detail of the halter on each side, too.
Debonair Sky Blue Best Quality Ruffled Halter Swimwear
Item Code: 10917026
I love this style a lot, so I couldn't decide which one I liked better: yellow or blue. Why not both? You can never have too many bikinis (or shoes...or bags... or lip glosses...)
Comfortable OL Style Candy Color High Quality Soft Empire Skirt
Item Code: 10945526
Color Wine Red
While this skirt may not look like anything spectacular on the hanger, I have similar ones in gray and black and they are such versatile wardrobe essentials. White, black, red, and patterned tops would work well with this crimson choice. (Again, I can never have too much red in my closet!) The soft cotton and spandex fibers are extremely comfortable as the skirt conforms to your shape. This is a seasonless fabric in a color I can wear year-round.
Luxury Euramerican Floral Print Skirt with BeltItem Code: 10872470
This floral print skirt is similar to the leopard one shown above. I like the bright, bold colors and the flowy design. It would wake up a solid navy or black top with a festive look.
Lovely Pink with Bow Knot Strapless Bikini Set
Item Code: 10917028
I like the big bow detail that enhances the cleavage. The bottoms are figure friendly, too, with the side ties that won't squeeze you in the wrong places like banded bikinis can. And strapless, means no tan lines up top.
Romantic Owl Wing Multi-layers Retro Leather Bracelet
Item Code: 10880003
Stackable bracelets are very trendy right now. If you're like me, I always seem to have some trouble in figuring out which bracelets would look good with each other. This pre-paired, multi-layered leather bracelet would take the guess work out of accessorizing for me. It creates the illusion of individual bracelets, but is actually just one! The leather is a very neutral material in an earth tone, so I could wear it with almost anything. I think the owls are cute, too!
Unique Bohemian Style Ball Beads Lady's Alloy Bracelets Set
Item Code: 10641307
Tidestore also offers accessories. These blue bracelets are perfectly coordinated in color and complement each other while remaining distinctive with different beads. I like wearing turquoise in the summer. It reminds me taking a splash in a pool of cool, blue water, sparkling in the sun.
Charming Bohemian Style Retro Florals Bracelet with Crystal
Item Code: 10643031
This is such a unique piece of hand jewelry. I love how the rose ring appears to dangle down from the wrist on a vine. I could see wearing this to dinner and having it be the conversation piece or attention getter of the evening.
Beautiful Polka Dots Split Joint Dress
Item Code: 09657150
Color Light Yellow
The polka dots caught my eye again in this. The dress also gives the illusion of two pieces when it's actually one. If I overlay the waistline with a wide belt as shown here, it looks like a really classy outfit I could wear from day to dinner paired with some heels.
