Houston Divas: Premium Outlets Are Coming!

Whether it's the Chicago Premium Outlets, Desert Hills Premium Outlets (my favorite!), or the Allen Premium Outlets, I enjoy shopping at any location within the Chelsea Premium Outlet chain. To the delight of many of my Houston divas, the H-town area will soon be able to enjoy the deep discounts along with their neighbors to the north and south of them. Houston Premium Outlets will open its doors in late March (located in Cypress - about 30 miles from the city). Mark your calendars - the Grand Opening Celebration takes place March 27 - 30! Check out the store listing here.

Houston will never be the same.

Dazzling Discount Designer Dresses!

Gotta love a good deal on designer dresses. All of these were originally over $300!

Nanette Lepore 'Lyricist' Lamé Dress - $163.90 (was $410) - Nordstrom

This trapeze style metallic Nanette Lapore "Lyricist" dress is just darling. It is available in both this bronze color as well as silver. They still have a lot of sizes available.

Laundry by Design Metallic Lace Mini Shift Dress - $194.90 (was $325) - Nordstrom

Another very cute short metallic dress. This Laundry by Design mini dress is perfect for a party! The catch: it's only available in size 12. If that's your size, jump on this deal!

Diane von Furstenberg "Hermoine" Rose Dot Dress - $207 (was $345) - Bloomingdales'

All I have to say about this Diane von Furstenberg "Hermoine" black and white dress is ADORABLE! I love how it's so versatile - it would look great both at a ladies luncheon with strappy sandals or a nice dinner with tights and heels. Love it!

Badgley Mischka for How Much?

Saks is having a phenomenal sale online. Some of these items caused me to do a double take!

Badgley Mischka Sportswear Selma Tweed Short Jacket - $107.34 (over 75% off!)
Isn't this tweed jacket just darling? Unfortunately Saks isn't carrying the pants online, but you can still wear the jacket as shown with solid pants or even denim with knee boots. Here's the catch 1) they only have one size left - size 10, and 2) even though the picture shown looks like it is a black and gray mix, the available color is coffee. Still a great deal!

Badgley Mischka Platinum Label Strapless Cocktail Dress - $142.74 (was $595!)
Ladies, you would definitely be the talk of the cocktail party if you walked in wearing this gorgeous Badgley Mishka Platinum Label strapless dress. The quality and structure are absolutely amazing and you certainly cannot beat the price. Like the jacket above it's only available in size 10.

Cards, Please!

Do you know anyone who just can't get enough of Spades, Gin, Blackjack or Poker? How about this: have you ever played cards at someone's house (maybe even your own!) to find the deck was missing a card or two? I found these nice card sets that look great from pretty inexpensive to super cheap! Enjoy!

COLBY LEATHER CARD SET - $11.99 Pottery Barn
This card set from Pottery Barn comes with a deck of cards, a notebook and pencil (for keeping score, of course). You can even add a monogram (for an additional charge).

DOUBLE CARD CASE - $14.95 Crate & Barrel
This faux leather card case holds two decks of red and white polka dot cards.

CARD SET - $3.99 West Elm
Though this card set from West Elm isn't as schnazzy as the other two, the price is certainly right! The box is made of canvas and in addition to the beet color shown, it also comes in flax and espresso.

Diane von Furstenberg dresses on sale

Just by looking at them, you may not think these prices are all that great. But once you look at the original prices and the fact that they were designed by fashion extraordinaire Diane von Furstenberg, the prices look so much better! All of the dresses are found at Nordstrom.

Camelita Wrap Dress - $145.90 (was $365)
We all know that no one does wrap dresses like DvF! This fun Camelita wrap dress is on sale for 60% off. If you don't like these colors, they have another version in a different pattern with more muted colors here for the same price.

Abaje Ponte Knit Dress - $169.90 ($425)
Very chic and feminine and best of all - 60% off! You may not want to take too long to purchase this fab Abaje knit dress. Match this one with a colorful clutch for an extra pop!

Svetlana Wrap Dress - $206.90 (was $345)
Though it is kind of hard to tell with the bow in the front, this is indeed a wrap dress. It's made of silk jersey and the pattern and shape give it a Latin flair. A great party dress!

Filomena Dress - $278.90 ($465)
This is definitely my favorite of the bunch. This Filomena dress is exquisite and elegant. And, since it's made from a wool blend, it is appropriate for the season. The side pockets show that though it looks a little like old Hollywood, it still current and on-trend.
