Shop It To Me Favorites and Smart Cookies #TreatYourself Pop-Up Shops

#TreatYourself.  This has been our mantra throughout December, and we’re holding strong as we wrap up 2011 and enter 2012.

Our first pop-up shop today is brought to you by none other than yours truly, the Shop It To Me team. We’re a diverse bunch with tastes that run the gamut. One of the highlights of our job throughout the year is to scope out the best deals from around the web.  Although we constantly flight the temptation to treat ourselves… we’re over the moon that on Treat Yourself Tuesday, it’s sanctioned! From athletic-wear and kids sleepwear to luxury designer bags and heels, our team holds major style crushes on items we eye daily in Salemail.  We’re guessing you’ll salivate over some of these finds as much as we do.

Today’s second pop-up shop showcases items that the Smart Cookies can’t get enough of. Smart Cookies are a group of five women who came together bonding over their desire for financial stability, without sacrificing their style or social lives.  Among other places, they’ve been featured on Oprah and in The New York Times, and are now here to share their style picks with you.

Making 2012 new year’s resolutions? The Smart Cookies also agreed to sound off on a few saving tips that will help your fashion inclinations in the year ahead:

  • You don’t have to sacrifice style if you’re on a spending plan. Take stock and make the most of your current wardrobe by updating and altering the pieces you love. Keep a running list of what you need so you’re not shopping and spending impulsively.
  • It’s fun to shop in-store, but when you’re ready to purchase check your favorite sites first. The best deals are usually found online.

Have something else on your mind you want the Smart Cookies to chime in on?  Now’s your chance! They’ll be hosting a live Facebook chat at 7:30pm ET tonight (Tuesday, 12/27).  We’ll also be announcing the winners of today’s #treatyourself Cookie Giveaway. Tune in!

Retta (aka Donna from Parks and Rec) Treats Us to Her Style Picks

It’s the last Treat Yourself Tuesday before Christmas, and our holiday dreams have already come true.  Retta, the super talented stand-up who plays scene-stealing Donna Meagle on NBC’s Parks and Rec is the curator of today’s pop up shop.

Treat Yourself Tuesday with Retta from Parks and Rec

Never one to bring down the value of the “Benz”—you won’t want to miss Retta’s impeccable picks of fine leather goods you know you deserve.

When it comes to handbags, Retta’s all about clean lines and classic styles.  As for footwear, she’s got great taste in loafers, platform pumps, booties and more. I’m sure she didn’t mean to bankrupt us, but alas–she may have.

For a daily dose of sunshine and happiness, be sure to follow Retta on twitter.
