Chic Picks: 3 Pretty Tops

Wow! I just realized I had been blabbing about mostly tech, gadgetry and innovation for the last few posts. Hmm, lest one forgets I’m just geek and not chic enough, I headed over to some online shops to do some serious window surf shopping.

And I hunted for some cool casual tops. I’m never the one for -shirts, but I do like simple, easy to wear tops.

I think I want to have these or something similar to these three..

Chic Picks: Orla Kiely Strip Stem Totes

The Orla Kiely Strip Stem Totes. They are just perfect for everyday, shopping use.  Would also be fab as a beach bag.

My Cath Kidston Browser Love

I have an ongoing Cath Kidston addiction. At the moment it doesn’t extend yet to me going on a handbag or any Cath Kidston product shopping spree, but I’m getting close to that. Lol.

Call me a sucker for girly stuff, but I’m head over heels in love with Cath Kidston patterns. Lovely florals and other themes with a very vintage vibe. If you want some free wallpapers check out this page.

And where am I channeling this obsession? On my desktop and my browsers! Thank God for themes and personas!

Here’s how my Chrome and Firefox are dressed up:

Chic Picks: Floral Sateen Dress

Super adorable! This Melonie Flora Sateen Dress I saw in Kohl’s. I’m seriously tempted to grab the card and make a go for this. Thankfully, I’m living outside the US so I curbed the impulse and contented myself to just blogging about it.

Cute, right?  I like the floral accents, its not too overwhelming. Just right to add the ultra feminine look.  The dip-dyed effect and the cut of the dress is very flattering for all figure types. Well worth the price tag of $100.
