Reader Discount – Whooga Uggs!

What could be more comfy [for your feet] than boots that feel as warm and cozy as slippers? Actually, they are warmer and cozier than slippers – and you can wear them outside!  I’m talking about Whooga Ugg Boots.  [Not to be confused with the UGG (all caps) brand … ugg is a style … read more here.]  Made from sheepskin and lined with Thermofleece, the boots conform to the shape of your foot, keep your feet warm, don’t get smelly, and even help increase circulation.  Can your slipper or boot do all of that?

To be completely honest, I never really liked ugg boots.  But now you can find all kinds of styles and colors and I think if you pair them with leggings and and a long sweater, anyone can rock an ugg.

If you sign up for Whooga’s newsletter, you get entered in their monthly drawing for FREE BOOTS!  You can also follow them on Twitter, where their latest giveaway asked fans what was their favorite Whooga Ugg color and why.  What are you waiting for?!

In addition to all the giveaways, Whooga is offering a special discount for Furious Shirley readers – 10% off your orders for the next week!  Just visit Whooga Ugg Boots and use code 963FURIOUS !  XO

Cutest Little Black Dress

How cute is this little black dress?!  Soooo cute, right?  You can find it at lola [on Etsy] … and be sure to browse through the shop – she has some really amazing dresses.

And if you don’t want to wait until next spring to wear this little number, just throw on some tights, boots, and a chunky cardigan – like this one from lamixx [also found on Etsy] – looks so cozy and comfortable, doesn’t it?

DIY Jewelry Organization

In our old apartment, I had most of my jewelry in vintage boxes and my necklaces hung from two large hooks on the bathroom wall.  Since we moved, it’s all still in a box because I haven’t figured out how I want to organize it yet.  I started looking around for some good ideas and thought I would share some of the best.

Lori from Paisley Wallpaper stores her jewelry in these cute little molds.  Great idea if you have the drawer space!

I love the way an old frame and a piece of screen were used for an earring display.  Check out the full tutorial at Restored Style [she also has some other great jewelry storage ideas, so be sure to look around].

Or if DIY is not your thing, you can buy one that someone else made by hand.  This earring frame was built from weathered barn wood by Paradise Hill Designs.

A Few Fall Fashion Faves

There was a slight chill in the air this morning.  It didn’t last long, but it was there … fall is coming.  It is my favorite season and with good reason.  Cool and crisp jacket-optional weather, hot coffee instead of iced, leaves crunching under my boots, snuggling instead of sweating, and the clothes – oh the clothes.  Here are a few of my favorites, and expect more soon.

The boots.  The boots.  I love these boots.  Urban Outfitters.  They also come in a maroon/navy option and will look great with just about anything – like this dress from Zara.  It looks so comfy.  I think I’d pair it with an oversized cardigan, thick tights, and boots.

How great is this cowl neck tunic from ASOS?!  Loving the plaid, loving the neck … makes a simple tunic something special.

Totally rad halter vest from Topshop.  This backless number would work great with a fitted tuxedo shirt or even a turtleneck.

And let’s not forget about the men in our lives.  I can definitely see Michael rocking these new styles from Keds at Bloomingdales.

Spring/Summer Purses [that are kind to your wallet]!

Your purse is one of your most important accessories.  It holds things that are near and dear to you – the things you need to get through each day.  Keys, phone, make-up, credit cards, glasses, tampons, breath mints, bobby pins … and the list goes on and on.  It is a reflection of who you are – not just on the inside, but the outside too.  A great purse is the key to looking and staying put together … I mean, if we trust these bags to hold such precious commodities, shouldn’t it look good doing it?

The fabric choices from Charm Design just scream SPRINGTIME!  SUMMERTIME!  I am in love with these zippered pouches, but they also have a wonderful selection of shoulder and tote bags too.  Pretty, fun, and simple – just the way I like it!

The hand woven cotton on this bag from Tippy Thai is the perfect pick for warmer weather.  There are lots of rich color selections to choose from in a variety of natural fabrics [cotton, hemp…].  Excellent casual bag.

Don’t be afraid of carrying leather in the hot summer sun.  While it may not be the ideal choice for a day at the beach, a leather tote is perfectly acceptable [and looks so cool] for a day lunching and shopping or a night on the town.  The bags at Hoakon / Helga are made from vintage leather jackets and other upcycled materials [awesome!].

You’ll definitely turn a few heads carrying this bright yellow pouch from Farrago Bags.  Their bags also come with a key chain monogrammed with your initials for a personal touch.

These simple and classic sailor totes from Bayan Hippo are just the thing for a day at the beach or strolling through the park.  Choose from a wide assortment of colors … I think I’m going to have to get one of these!bayanhipp

This bag by Spongetta is made from upholstery remnants and wrapped around two rattan rings.  Great bag to just pick up and go with!

How chic are these metallic zip pouches by Marketa in NYC?!  You can fill it up and toss it in your bag to help stay organized or use it as a clutch for nights out when you don’t want to lug around a huge purse!  There’s something about shiny things that just makes you want them … meow.

This gorgeous handbag [the manzanilla] by Zelaya was made with incredible attention to detail.  A raw cotton fabric [manta] is used and then embroidered with polka dots and sewn together with thread dyed using chamomile tea and finished off with a hand carved wooden handle.  It’s elegant, yet casual and I think it’s probably my favorite bag.  This one goes on my covet list for sure.

Beautiful Fair Trade Heart Pendant Necklace

I was smitten with this necklace the moment Tammy Wilson from Earthlover sent me a sneak peek.  Crafted by hand using imfibinga seeds (awesome), this pendant hangs from a 24″ hand knitted cotton string.

This necklace is part of the Be Sweet product line, working with villagers in South African tribes  – their mission is to “bring socially and environmentally friendly products to fashionable consumers that evoke an individual style and help support community development around the world.”  A portion of their proceeds are donated to a school in the Eastern Cape, where many of the artisans’ children attend classes.  What makes a better gift than a gift that gives back? Nothing.  This necklace is available at Earthlover for $21.00 … and if the necklace isn’t for you, there is a gorgeous heart shaped pin!
