Stickered

20140327-202135.jpg

I’ve gotten a few ups on my recent manicure. This is a rare occurrence for me, as I rarely do my nails (well). I got some nail stickers at walgreens – they come with around 40? – so you can squeeze several uses out of them. When you’re done, you just peel them off! The whole sticker thing is pretty genius. It’s super easy to do and it ends up looking pretty fly, if I do say so myself.

The Window Shopper’s Spring Must Haves

Payton Bridewell shares The Window Shopper’s must-haves for Spring with At Home in Arkansas

I had the honor of sharing my must-haves for Spring with At Home in Arkansas. Here is the post.

Payton for NWAFW-7430logo

She produced and styled photo shoots for the boutiques participating in NWA fashion week. She can also be found playing dress up on her blog, thewindowshopper.org or @mspayton on instagram. She’s very excited about fashion week; you can find her hosting the events on Thursday & Friday nights!

athome

1. An Earcuff: I love wearing an earcuff lately. It adds edge without an actual piercing.
Ear Cuff, $88 shopbop.com
2. A bum bag: I’ve always loved fanny packs and I’ve picked a few up at thrift shops over the years. But for those who want something a little higher end, there seem to be more options out there. This version is both convenient & chic.
Bumbag, $165 DKNY
 3. A one piece swimsuit: I wear a one piece as a leotard with jeans or high waist pants because it keeps the lines very clean. You can also hop in the pool at a moment’s notice.
Swimsuit, $59 ASOS
 4. A colorful nail color: I work for P&G and I love the new CoverGirl Nail shades, like Mint Mojito. You really don’t need a topcoat!
CoverGirl Outlast Nail, $4.94 Walmart
 5. Go with everything sandals: I gravitate toward anything clear or Lucite so I hope to pick up these Seychelles’ sandals from Maude in Fayetteville
Seychelles Heels, $89 Maude
 6. A portable iPhone speaker: I keep one in my purse for impromptu dance parties.
iHome Speaker, $19 Target
7. Insoles: I wear heels almost every day. Dr Scholl’s insoles make it possible
High Heel Insole, $7.97 Walmart

Ok, did you catch my first NWAFW Window Shop collaboration with Maude? If not, head –> here !
If so…let us venture on! Up next, window shopping in Plato’s Closet.
 was thrilled to hear that Plato’s Closet (PC) was participating in NWAFW. I am in my element buying resale. I was already a stopping by PC on occasion, attempting to sell clothes and typically buying some instead. I’m a treasure-hunter by nature and I enjoy perusing and browsing. I tell myself I won’t buy unless I can’t live without it. But I’m really good at convincing myself of that, especially with the affordability factor. I almost always find something special hiding/wait! They recently opened a new, much larger location, everything is really streamlined and they have GOBS of shoes in every size. Just last night, I went back and found some Jeffrey Campbell cutout platforms (regular retail: $100+/ PC: $20).I found Marc Jacobs, DVF and all kinds of name brand jeans almost immediately. I kept my closet in mind and settled on a mix of pieces. As their Facebook page explains, Plato’s Closet “specializes in gently used clothes and accessories for teen and twenty something girls and guys”. They will also pay cash for clothes, if they’re on trend (mine usually aren’t…boo) and allow shoppers to drop off their stuff and leave, returning anytime that day. I don’t know for sure but I think that several of the boutiques send stuff there after the current season… I can’t wait to see what PC shows on the runway because I love that we have the option to buy “green” clothing that is has been worn and loved and is now CHEAP! I’m not kidding when I tell you that you could spend HOURS in there and not see everything. Thus, I was able to widen my range at PC and pulled favorites from my personal collection to create looks.
Staci Deal is the proprietor of the local Plato’s Closets. With her family, she opened the Fayetteville location in 2008. They quickly expanded to Rogers and Fort Smith in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Staci and her husband (Rob) have three dogs and spend a lot of their free time outside. She’s obsessed with Rachel Zoe & Taylor Swift and says that “fashion is everything.”
So I styled & piled. My team fluffed & puffed. Then magic! Oh and keep your eyes peeled for my hubby as a very handsome prop in one look :)

The Fashion Week Window Shop

So, friends…as the PR chair for NWA fashion week 2013, I’ve been asked to blog in support of the local participating boutiques. We are posting my introduction today. I’ve copied it below but go to the site to keep up!

Hi to all the sartorially preoccupied of NWA, my name is Payton (Rosenzweig) Bridewell and I am the window shopper.
Since Fashion Week 2013 is right around the corner, it’s time to join me for a peek in the proverbial windows of the participating boutiques/designers/shops. Once a week, I’ll be highlighting the shops with shows. I’ll be perusing their racks, choosing a few pieces to take home and styling them with what I already have in my closet – granted… I am something of a clotheshorse. I’ll show you some of the wonderful things you can find shopping in NWA and how to wear them.
I’ve rounded up a local team of skilled professionals to help me and we can’t wait to share what we’ve done. Find me on instagram @mspayton to stay tuned!
