If you’re wondering if the new Roland Mouret for Banana Republic collection is worth investing in, the answer is yes. The dresses are form fitting but have lots of stretch in them. They fit like a dream—elegant and slenderizing. The Midi cut elongates the figure, making us look slim and sleek. Today was a good day for Banana Republic as many of the dresses immediately sold out online. If you’re looking for size and selection, you’ll probably have to visit a Banana Republic store to get your size. But take heart, there is still Roland Mouret in many Banana stores and in a week, there will probably be returns too. Continue reading

This week I’m at the BlogHer ’14 conference in Carmel, CA. It’s a great conference for women who love to blog. It’s day 1 and my feet are already aching, but I’m enjoying learning about new social media tricks and meeting fellow bloggers. After the show, I’ll be taking a few days of vacation to one of my favorite travel escapes, Carmel by the Sea. The little village of Carmel is one of the most charming places in California. If you’re a blogger attending the conference this week, think about a visit to Carmel after the show. Carmel is just a little over a one hour ride by car. You can also take the Coast Starlight train from San Jose, CA to Carmel or a Bus for as littel as $30.00. Once you’re in Carmel, you don’t need a car to get around and there are plenty of great things to do just by walking through town. Here are a few of my favorite places and things to do in Carmel.
