IS laser vision correction for me??
I don’t know, but am excited to find out more about it!  I have worn glasses for years and seriously considered laser vision correction for some time now.  Tomorrow, I get to check out the new Michelson Laser Vision location at UAB Highlands and I’m super excited!

One of the few pics I have taken with glasses on, though they are my go-to whenever I travel.

The open house will take place from 5:30pm-7:30pm and will involve appetizers, a chance to win valuable door prizes, elegant hors d’ oeuvres by Kathy G, and complimentary spirits and live entertainment!  There will also be Free Valet Parking, so if you’re not too busy, plan to join me (along with B Metro Magazine and Javacia of See Jane Write).

Thrifty Thursday’s – Calypso St. Barth’s Friends and Family Sale

There’s a great sale going on at Calypso St. Barth, so I just had to share it with you!  It began yesterday, October 22nd, but will run through Sunday, October 26th so there is still plenty of time to shop! 🙂  I was actually at Calypso St. Barth for the launch of the Friends and Family sale last night, offering styling tips and helping pick out pieces for the fall.  It was so much fun!  So, I thought I would do the same for you in this post. But first, let me tell you about my outfit of the night (aka #ootn).  I wore a pair of Calypso St. Barth sequin pants (currently on sale!) that I purchased a while back for next to nothing during another one of their sales:

In Birmingham, the launch of the Friends and Family sale also coincided with the Shop and Share event, hosted by the Junior League of Birmingham, with social media coverage by B-Metro magazine.

I’ve shared my love for Calypso St. Barth with you all previously, and also mentioned how pricey the store can be.  I believe I also mentioned how amazing their sales can be too, though!  There are some fantastic items on sale now in stores, but also many that can be found online.  One of the things I like to do when shopping sales is to plan ahead and shop for the following year.  So, for example, there are some amazing summer items for sale at Calypso St Barth right now.  They are incredibly affordable after the Friends and Family, 25% off discount.  To save you some time, I’ve curated some outfit ideas for you!  Take a look at some of the “looks” I styled for you at three different price points:

1. Beach attire – Summer 2015: All under $30 before 25% off discount.
