Outfit of the Day – Dressing up for the Dentist

Today was my last visit to the dentist. Now I am not talking about cleaning or anything, I was getting my teeth fixed big time, no I mean it, BIG TIME!

I guess dental care in Russia sucks, because when I was leaving last July, I went to see a dentist, who told me I was going to be fine and that my teeth looked okay. Then I came here, and they took the X-rays, and it all went downhill from there. Well now it’s all fixed, and I am a happy camper. I am also happy the anesthesia wore off and I can enjoy dinner, without having to worry about biting my lip off! But in all it’s honesty, I had 8 or 9 teeth done, that’s how bad it was!

It always helps when the dentist calls you hun though 🙂

But enough me blabbering – here is what I wore today:

Loafers – Lucky Brand

Jeans – Dollhouse

Shirt and undershirt – Old Navy

Purse – Ralph Lauren, duh!

Watch – Marc Jacobs – It’s actually not in the picture, but I don’t leave the apartment without putting it on!

Check out my bicycle necklace – how awesome is that? Yup, I won it in a giveaway!

I was also wearing my Steve Madden shades, but those aren’t in the picture either!

And finally, I haven’t been blow drying or straightening my hair for almost a month now, feels awesome! Anyone out there need an extra curling iron?

Doodles,

Сегодня был мой последний визит к дантисту. И я не имею ввиду чистку зубов, мне лечили зубы и еще как лечили!

Как оказалось, зубные врачи в России не знают, что они творят, за что мы их конечно простим, но когда я переезжала сюда на ПМЖ в прошлом июле, мой русский врач сказала, что у меня все в порядке. А потом мне сделали рентген и понеслось! Но сейчас уже все заделано и вылечено и радости полные штаны! К тому же заморозка отошла к ужину, и мне не нужно было задумываться о том, откушу ли я себе нижнюю губу или нет? Но на полном серьезе, мне вылечели 8 или 9 зубов! Да, все было так плохо!

Но всегда приятно, когда зубной врач обращается к тебе ласково, меня моя называла “hun” (сокращенно от “honey”)!

Но хватит болтовни, лучше расскажу из чего состоял мой аутфит:

Мокасины – Lucky Brand

Джинсы – Dollhouse

Майка/кофта – Old Navy

Сумка – Ralph Lauren, удивились?!

Часы – Marc Jacobs – на самом деле на фотографии часов нет, но я без них из дома не выхожу!

Обратите внимание на мой велосипед на шее – правда классный? Его я выиграла в конкурсе!

Я также была в своих солнечных очках от Steve Madden, но их тоже нет на фотографии!

И еще, хотела отметить, что уже почти месяц я не подвергаю свои волосы никакой термической обработке, и чувствуют они себя на все сто! Никому не нужна плойка? У меня одна лишняя!

Всем всего самого хорошего,

Z

 

 

 

Old Navy Haul (Super Cash in Action)

You all know how I feel about certain brands, and that I will never wear Aeropostale or Hollister or whatever else junior high girls wear these days. I am 25 for Christ’s sake!

Surprisingly I’ve been able to find certain items at Old Navy that I like. Remember my post about Easter? That skirt came from ON, as well as some of my new T-shirts for the summer, which I don’t think I’ve shown to anyone, but I’ve been wearing them to work, and in all honesty, I’ll be extremely happy if they last me through the summer. Those t-shirts and all of my dresses, heh!

Anyways, today’s haul was in a way “sponsored” by my previous shopping trip to ON, when I was given $20 in super cash. If you don’t know how Super Cash works, it’s basically a 50% off coupon, that includes clearance and sale items and everything in between. And my super cash was going to expire on 4/17!

And it was cold today, and I wasn’t sure whether I should go, well you know, the usual blah blah blah

I ended up coming home with 2 bags full and all I spent was $25!

So here is what I got:

$4.17

$1.94

$1.94

$1.94

$6.12

$3.05

$3.05

$3.07

My receipt and another coupon 🙂 Yes, they are doing everything to lure me back in, and they are succeeding!

I can’t wait to show you how to style and accessorize these items! Especially the sweaters, since I have a special make-over in mind for those! I am sure you’ve noticed how loose everything is! Yes, I am into loose tops this season, skinny jeans and loose tops, what can be better?

Let me know what you think about this haul, and ON as a brand in general!

Cheers my fellow fashionistas and shopaholics 😉

Многие из вас знают, как я отношусь к определенным маркам одежды,  и что я никогда не одену что-либо, купленное в Aeropostale или Hollister,  или в каких-то других магазинах, популярных среди учениц старших классов школы. Мне 25 как-никак!

Но к моему удивлению, я уже несколько раз нахожу подходящую одежду в магазине Old Navy. Вы читали мой пост про Пасху? Юбка, которая в тот день была на мне, была куплена как раз в этом магазине!  Я также прикупила там несколько маек, которые я никому не показывала, но уже носила на работу 😉 На самом деле я буду рада, если эти футболки продержатся хотя бы это лето! Футболки и многочисленные платья – что еще нужно летом? Ах да, шорты!

Сегодняшний поход в магазин был “спонсирован” (лучше сказать – спровоцирован!) моим предыдущим походом в ON, когда мне дали купон на скидку в размере $20, или так называемые Супер Наличные. Если вы никогда не слышали про такие “деньги”, это обычный купон на 50% скидку, который можно использовать на покупку вещей, которые на распродаже (sale) и на очень хорошей распродаже (clearance) ну и на прочие товары! И срок действия купона заканчивался 17 апреля!

Сегодня было холодно (снег с дождем утром :/ ) и я все думала, стоит ли вообще ехать по магазинам, ну в общем все как обычно…

В итоге, я вернулась домой с 2 сумками, потратив всего лишь 25 баксов!

(Фотографии и все цены смотреть выше! На последней фотке мой чек и еще один купон – в общем они заманивают меня обратно как только могут!)

Скоро будут посты про наряды дня, и какие аксессуары я добавила к купленным сегодня вещам! Обратите внимание на свитера, про них будет отдельный пост, так как у меня есть особая задумка 😉

Напишите мне что вы думаете про Old Navy как бренд и про мои покупки!

Особенный привет всем модницам и шопоголикам!

Всего самого!

On Mortals and Purses

One good thing about working at Macy’s is shopping at Macy’s, oh wait I think I got that wrong 😉

Either way – my search for a perfect bag is over, I finally decided on a hobo by Ralph Lauren, and the discount was too good to pass on the deal. Plus this bag is black with silver accents, and that’s exactly what I was looking for!

Oh Macy’s, you just make me shop all the more!

The original price on this baby is $386, and let me tell you, I got it for less than 40% of the original price (that includes me using the Macy’s Card and my employee discount)

What do you think? I am pretty sure I am done with purses now, so if anyone is interested in buying any of my vintage/thrifted bags, let me know, I have a whole lot!

Cheers!

Easter the Hutsons’ way!

Yay for Easter and holidays and a day off 🙂 Anyways I am going to start today’s post with my outfit of the day! The skirt was an amazing $12 find from Old Navy! The sheer blouse is something I got at Ragstock last week and the under shirt is something I’ve had for years! The shoes are pretty old too, I’ve had them since Russia!

I also made a traditional Russian Easter cake called “Kulich” – just some raisins and icing, and it turned out really good! I honestly didn’t expect that at all 🙂 Hehe

Once we got to my in-laws house, Sandra surprised me with spicy Korean carrots (those are super popular in Russia!)

While waiting for dinner, we entertained ourselves by adding on to the diorama!

Can you guess what we’ve added? Heh!

And after dinner we were all enjoying the view and taking pictures. Sam and I don’t have a lot of pictures together, so we finally took one!

And I took one with my mother-in-law as well 🙂 How gorgeous are we?

And finally, I just wanted to share some of the beautiful scenery with you, add on bird sounds and a little breeze and you get our Easter Day!

Happy Easter everyone!

1 Day 2 Outfits and Boo

Yesterday was my day off! And days off are amazing, I am sure you all know that! Plus I was on a mission – to buy Boo the cute little dog for Ingrid – the girl I baby sit! If you don’t know who Boo is – here is a picture!

I was able to order both the plush toy and the book about Boo from our Uptown Urban Outfitters, and have them ship it to my house for free 🙂 Oh the beauty of ordering from the store instead of online (that would’ve cost me $10!)

Anyways, once Boo makes it to my house, I’ll make sure to take some pictures of him for you before I pass him on to the cutest little girl in the area!

Now, I don’t want to be vain, or God forbid pull a Samantha Brick on you, but I went through 2 outfits yesterday. Here is the first one:

I am rocking my thrifted COACH cross body and BCBG Max Azria Jacket, my dress came from a sale at Macy’s, and the boots were a gift from my hubby, before we were even married. And then you know, the watch is the usual – Marc Jacobs, yes, I am obsessed 😉

After I placed my order at UO, I went to check out the Ragstock, and ran into my friend Tom, whom I haven’t seen for about 5 years! Here is some interesting info for you – there are 2 Ragstocks in uptown, both are in the same building, but I was so excited about everything I bought there, I had to immediately go home and change!

Hence, Outfit of the day #2:

As you can tell I am recovering pretty well after my surgery 🙂 Thank you all for warm wishes and loving messages! I appreciate all of them so so much!

Hope you had a good day yesterday!

Purse Dilemma

Do you watch YouTube? Anyways I have become the biggest YouTube junkie for over a year now, and I love Tiffany from MakeupByTiffany – she recently posted a video and shared her latest purchases – one of which was a Louis Vuitton bag. And what a bag – I mean it was gorgeous. So gorgeous, that here are some pictures for you:

And I do agree with Tiffany that purchasing a bag like this is an investment and an investment of a life time. So I’ve discovered myself drooling over LV bags for the past 2 nights.

So I wanted to ask your opinion – do you think it’s worth investing into an expensive purse like an LV or a Chanel, or just spend money on a cheaper one. Anyways, please take time to leave a vote 🙂

Doodles my lovelies,

NYX Haute Jersey Leopard Couture Review

Being a huge fan of all the drama going on Jerseylicious for the 4th (I think season in a row) I couldn’t NOT notice that episode, where Olivia gets all dressed up like crazy, oh wait she is crazy and does some super hero make up tutorial for NYX website.

Here are the videos for those of you, who missed this amazing Lordess of the Wing/Olivinator show

So when the NYX Haute Jersey palette popped up on HauteLook for only $15 I knew I couldn’t miss out on that! Plus you all know that HL is my newest latest obsession 😉

I honestly love the way the palette is made – all the little details, the writings above the mirrors that you are the DIVA and all that, now I am not exactly happy with some of the eye shadows. There are too many grays/silvers, but some of the lighter colors and that pink and blue are pretty amazing, the blushes and the bronzers are great – my favorite is that mixed one, with the blush and the bronzer all together (which reminds me – I have a Physicians Formula one, I should probably take that out of the drawer! ). The lip glosses are so adorable, but so small – they are great though, and do last quiet a while – up to 3 hours, which for a lip gloss is a pretty decent time, I think. I usually carry one in my pocket at work (sorry, Clinique).

So that’s the story of me and the Haute Jersey palette from NYX,

Have you tried NYX products? Which ones would you recommend?

Xoxo,
