8 Great Gifts for Him

Another Friday is here and if you are like me, the shopping days are dwindling down faster than I would like to acknowledge. My husband or really all of the men in my life, are the hardest people to buy for! Am I right or am I right?! I have put together this little collage of a few things I am picking up myself for some of my men! Happy Shopping!

Hostess & Housewarming Gift Guide!

Tis the season for gift giving, Holiday parties, and dinners with friends, so I thought the Fill the Cart Friday should be about what to bring your Hostess or Hostesses! Of course a bottle of wine always works too, if they drink it, but if you want to take something memorable, check out my top gifts below. I have made it easy buy choosing items from the same store, so if you have multiple parties coming up, you can add 1 thing or all of these to the same cart πŸ˜‰ (If you want to shop a piece directly, use the links below this image. Simply click on the image you want to purchase and it will take you right there.)

Fill the Cart Friday- SheIn

Never heard of SheIn before? Well, I honestly hadn't either until several months ago when I started with RewardStyle, but I think it is worth a share! I know some of you have messaged me hesitant to order because ordering from a new company with such inexpensive clothing can be intimidating. But let me assure you that I would never tell you to order from a place that I didn't trust or already order from myself! I don't always love the pieces and the quality of some is not good but more times than not I keep everything I have ordered! Always wait for a coupon code as they run constantly across the website homepage. HERE is their site!

So, step 1 is to create an account or sign in with Facebook. Then you fill your cart with items you love, add your coupon code, and checkout. It sometimes can take awhile to receive your shipment but by longer I mean 6-8 business days. Once you get your shipment and you don't love something, just use the bag or box it comes in, go to your account and select which pieces to return and print the label right there. Drop in mail. Super simple.


VARSITY SWEATER- First off this sweater is so good. I wear the size small and it is long enough for leggings but short enough to wear with jeans. It has a touch of a bell sleeve but not obnoxious and it is only $21. I mean seriously.


HERMES DUPES- I own these in white and this tan color and I get stopped all of the time about them! They are super comfortable and I wear an 8.5 and I ordered a 39. I know Winter is approaching but buy them now and wear them later or on vacation! 


EMBROIDERED SHEER TOP- This top is the perfect way to try out the sheer trend without feeling naked! Haha. Runs true to size and comes in 3 different colors. I have the wine color.


SHEER BLOUSE- And then there is this shirt for when you want to jump all over the sheer trend. I paired it with a black bralette and it was perfect! See how I styled it over on my Instagram at @ladyandredstyle and don't forget to follow for more outfit inspo! 


OPEN BACK SWEATER- The caption says it is camel colored and to me it is more mustard. I ordered the small and it is oversized so either size down or wear it a tad big. I am sticking with it and wore this on my recent trip to California! You can wear a bra, bralette, cami, or nothing at all under this sweater.


FRINGE TOP- For only $13, this top looks cute with OTK boots or sandals for Summer! 

Don't forget to check out the CLEARANCE items here and add them to your cart! $4 T-shirts!

Happy Shopping and hit me up if you have any further questions! Have another secret website I need to check out? Let me know! XO

Shopping with Rack Room Shoes

I had the opportunity to check out the new Rack Room Shoes at The Outlets of Des Moines, which opened it's doors on October, 19th as the first store of it's kind in Iowa. It does not disappoint! The store is located just down from the cozy fireplace, with plenty of centralized maps to get you to where you are wanting to go. The store was incredibly clean and set up perfectly with lots of staff to accommodate your shopping needs. It boasts all types of shoes and styles for men, women and children, with plenty of sizes available and in stock. If you are not familiar with Rack Room Shoes, they have their own private brands such as Franco Fortini, and feature premium details, materials and the latest design styles, especially on boots! You can also check our their website HERE as there you will find a fun little surprise over on their site πŸ˜‰ Below are the styles that I ended up buying on my first trip in! Under each image, I have added a BLUE shoppable link. Click this link and it will take you directly to the shoe pictured, choose your size, and there you can add it to your cart! 



How cute are these boots? And I swear they are the most comfortable pair I own! They have super soft inserts and this rust brown color is the perfect neutral bootie for any season!



This color has my heart. Burgundy and rose gold are really the perfect pairing and I love how you can dress these up with a sweater or dress them down to and from the gym.



Velvet.... also know as the hottest trend right now! These are 1/2 the price of other look alike booties, which I love, because I don't like paying a fortune for shoes that are not your standard shoe. These booties are fun and will spice up any outfit, anytime!



I need these in every color! Grey goes great with everything and these sneakers are so lightweight making them really easy to pack for vacations too! Of course I love the added touch of gold πŸ˜‰



What made my shopping experience even better, was that they offer free shipping in store to your home so you don't have to carry around bags. Who doesn't love shopping, bag free? Such a nice perk since a lot of people traveling from out of town may not want to haul a ton of bags home, and trust me, you will leave this store with a lot of bags!

I was impressed with all of the brands and athletic shoes they carried in the store and online. Brands like Nike, Converse, Adidas, and New Balance. And they weren't just selling plain white Converse shoes, they had them in all styles and a variety of colors, making it hard to choose just one pair. 

Some of you may be wondering why or how a store like this could be such a great addition to our community? I personally like to collaborate with companies who give back, and each back to school season, Rack Room Shoes hosts a Shoes That Fit fundraiser event, empowering customers to give back to their local communities by supplying children in need with shoes. The money raised is channeled through local school liaisons who identify students and school systems in need, while also coordinating the distribution of new footwear. Since 2007, Rack Room Shoes has raised a total of $5,604,113 and donated a whopping 206,201 pairs of shoes to children in need. So amazing right? Also, through a newly unveiled Kids Club, Rack Room Shoes encourages parents to submit photos of their children wearing Rack Room Shoes, simply by using the hashtag #iamrackroom, for a chance to be featured in the brand's Kids Club advertising. If you are already wearing them, why not share them?
