I Hope You're Impressed

I have just spent hours on the computer having way too much fun - I just created my button (feel free to grab one on the right-hand side of my page) and my favicon!  However, my favicon only shows up for Internet Explorer users - its the square picture on the address bar and on the tabs.  I'm so proud of myself. If you're interested in your own, check out the tutorial here.

Over the next few weeks, Image Envy will be undergoing some construction on the website design.  Don't worry though, I'll still be posting about great sales and great tips for dressing your style and your shape!  Till then, happy shopping!

Bummed Out

I have realized two things recently that totally bum me out:

1. Since we recently moved to Ohio, I no longer have a Nordstoms near me. Life without Nordstroms? No half-yearly sale? No great shoe department that fits my skinny narrow feet? No great bathrooms with the best mother's room you'll ever find? Seriously, what am I gonna do? MAJOR bummer.

2. Layers Clothing, my FAVORITE provider of fun, not-so-casual, modest clothing has still not recovered from the fire in their warehouse last November. Yes, everything they had burned down, but don't they know I'm waiting for their newest line?

Even though Nordstroms is too far away (I'm sure I'll still make the drive), I have my fingers crossed Layers will be up and running soon. Thank goodness for online shopping!

Modest Mia Bellina

If you're on the lookout for modest fashion, check out Mia Bellina.  Mia Bellina is a great line for every day wear that's not just a t-shirt.  My favorite of their products?  Half-tees.  These are great to cover up come cleavage while not adding extra bulk and weight on your lower half (else you could try some Bosom Buttons).  Their dresses look more like swimsuit coverups, but I love their new take on the casual top, and all have sleeves.

Printable Patterns

While shopping for my little girl's halloween costume (which is gonna be great), I stumbled on something fantastic - printable patterns.  I found them on the McCalls website.  Although they were generally more expensive than the regular pattern (about $1 or so), it saved you the time of waiting for the pattern in the mail.  And, both mail and printable pattern prices are cheaper than buying them in the store (unless you are shopping the sales).

Only some patterns are offered in printable, and obviously, they are non-returnable.  They also have free pattern downloads here.

Happy sewing!

How to care for it:  To keep suede looking new, use a clean washcloth and rub the suede.  Use the same procedure to remove water spots once they have dried.  For other spots, use a clean pencil eraser and scrub carefully.

September's Style

Just as September marks a new school year, it also marks the beginning of a new fashion cycle.  September is when all designers, fashion shows, and magazines pull out the big guns for their fall and winter lines.  September issues of magazines hit hard on what's new for school, the newest 'it' bag, and so-on and so forth.  Mark this new fashion year with your favorite magazine and The September Issue, a documentary showing an exclusive look at how Anna Wintour, Vogue's editor-in-chief, puts together their biggest magazine of the year, the month of September.

For those not familiar with Anna Wintour, she is arguably the most influential person in fashion today.  Lauren Weisberger's character, Miranda Priestly, in the book and motion film, The Devil Wears Prada, is rumored to be based on Ms. Wintour, as Lauren did work for her for a period of time.
