My Top 10 Swimwear Picks

People frequently ask me where I shop for swimwear since I’m picky about the cut, support, color, trend, etc. They’re also often afraid that they’re all by high-end designers, but I actually don’t like to spend much on swimsuits since I generally get tired of them after one or two seasons. So here’s a roundup of my favorite one pieces and bikinis that you can get for this sunny season!

Extreme [New] Home Makeover: Party Edition

You move into a new house and [stupidly] promise your daughter that you’d throw her a birthday party with all of her friends and family (42 people!!!) in two weeks. What do you do? For me, the answer was simple: have extremely labor-intensive evenings/weekends and do a ton of bargain furniture/decor shopping.

Spring Came Early


How can people still deny global warming? It’s over 80 degrees in the first week of March. That being said, I took advantage by busting out all of my latest warm-weather sale finds (80% off, anyone?) and heading to Alfred’s to cool off with my favorite thing ever… boba. Oh, and if you have the shopping bug, read on for some of the best sales I’ve come across lately.

Holiday Wishlist Ideas


I have an outrageously-unattractive laptop bag that I bought for $30 while in college. I got so used to taking it to work with me, I never once questioned it… until Adam saw me pick it up on my way out the door and mentioned that it ruined “my look”. Sad face. Thus I started hunting for one that I’d be proud to tote around…

Anyway, if you’re like me and you’re working on wish lists for the fam or trying to drop hints for your significant others, perhaps my list may be of some inspiration to you. Bonus points since most of these are steeply marked down!

Favorite Finds: 12 Things Under $10 That Take Kid Cuteness to Another Level


Kids are just about always cute. But sometimes the smallest accessories or details on their clothing make them even more ridiculously adorable. Now that Christmas music is playing on the radio, I am in full holiday spirit and literally combing the ends of the internet looking for gifts until I pass out on the sofa each night. I often come across adorable things for kids that I save in my shopping bag for a rainy day (or for it to go on sale). But in case you’re shopping for a little one, I thought I’d share. Here are some of my favorites… and even better, all under $10 so they make amazingly affordable gifts and stocking stuffers!

My Black Friday Bargain Wishlist

black friday cyber monday wishlist

I know that it’s the day before Thanksgiving, but I can’t help but think about the things that I’d really be thankful to own the day after Thanksgiving (…or Cyber Monday, because, let’s be honest, I prefer to shop from the comfort of my own living room while binge-watching the Good Wife).

A Farfetch 4th of July


I had actually been brainstorming for my 4th of July post (it marks Catching Couture’s three year anniversary!) when Farfetch reached out to me about their latest competition asking bloggers to creatively style stars and stripes. I’m always up for a good challenge, so here we go…

Lilly or Milly?


Ok… it’s a head-to-head spring designer collaboration launch week. Lilly Pulitzer for Target releases this Sunday, the 19th, and Milly for DesigNation/Kohls follows on Thursday the 23rd. Lilly is its usual palm beachy laid-back vibe with soft florals and eyelet fabrics, while Milly is slightly dressier and Capri-inspired with bold colors and stripes. Will you be shopping either of them?
