I just had to share how much I adore this Susana Monaco Flutter Tube Dress I just bought from Shopbop.com. I’m usually very hesitant to buy clothing online because I’m short and curvy and I can’t be assured that something will look right until I try it on. And even when I do buy clothes off the Internet, they’re almost always petite clothes because the proportions on regular clothes make me look like I got dressed in front of a funhouse mirror. But I decided to take a chance on this dress because a) I don’t have any cute going out dresses in my closet, b) this dress is so cute it’s ridiculous and c) it’s on sale for 50% off.
Well, I’m glad I decided to live dangerously because the dress fits amazing and is the most flattering thing I’ve bought in a long time. The double-jersey knit hugs without being restrictive. Plus since it’s not thin, you don’t have to worry about it showing any lumps and bumps. The peplum on top of the skirt plays hide-and-seek with the areas I’m most self conscious about, and makes this body-con dress more wearable for those of us without model bodies. And the color just screams summer, right?
This dress is so hot, I’m building an entire girls’ night around it.
If you’re as enamored with this dress as I am, act quick…it’s going fast. But be sure to check out Susana Monaco’s other dresses Shopbop.com – she’s no one hit wonder.

At Christmastime, I agonized over what to get my son’s daycare teachers. There are 12 of them – and even though he has his two main teachers, they all have interaction with him and take excellent care of him. So I needed to buy 12 gifts to show my appreciation, without breaking the bank. $10 each seemed doable, except that most gifts under $10 are utter crap and you’d rather give nothing at all than give someone a $10 junk present.
After almost settling on an uninspired gift (it was so blah, I can’t even remember what it was), Bath & Body Works had a sale on its 3-Wick Candles: 2 for $22. The 3 Wick Candles are a good size (14.5 oz) and usually $20 each, so this was a steal. I snatched up 12 candles in holiday scents for $132—and saved $108! It’s true that I went over my $10 per gift limit (only by $1), but it was okay because I also scored free shipping—and the candles conveniently showed up on my doorstep in mint condition. So it all evened out. But most important, the teachers LOVED their candles and raved for months about how wonderful they smell and how long they last.
Mother’s Day is coming up. It’s also prime time for baby and bridal showers right about now. Better yet, why not treat yourself? You deserve it. There are a lot of new spring/summer scents that sound amazing—like Gelato, Lemon Mint Leaf, Garden Bouquet, Peach Bellini, Lakeside, Caribbean Escape and Sicilian Orange—to name a few.
Get free shipping with any purchase of $50 or more. Enter promo code BURN50—but, hurry, because that deal is only good today. The 2 for $22, 3-Wick Candles deal ends on April 21, 2013. No coupon needed for that.
