Hi Pennies! Sorry for the absence of posts this week. It’s a one woman show at the HQ these days, so I’m tryin’ to hold up the fort and take care of business too!! But I promise I have a good excuse. I taped an AMAZING segment called “$5 Makeovers” on the Meredith Vieira Show that airs Thursday Jan 15th on NBC at 2pm! Scroll down to watch!

Unfortunately, Emily’s fab button down look got cut last minute because we ran out of time! But we did have time to do a quick tutorial backstage, which you can watch below:


I’m so thankful to all three of my NY-based girlfriends/models (Kandace, Sam, and Emily) for being victim to my DIY tricks on national TV! Let me know in the comments what you think of this segment!

  1. Hi Shauna

    Love your blog. Long time reader of the blog and your book too. Love Kandace’s look.

    Off topic – I bought a chiffon shirt from Loft that I think works great with jeans for a casual look. I am not sure if it is appropriate to wear with jeans/skirt or formal pants. Can you please suggest? Here is the link to a similar shirt.

    • Wow what a great piece!! J, I think you could wear the shirt with dark jeans and/or formal pants. A skirt could definitely work too depending on how it tucks in at the waist. Something more straight cut (rather than super fitted) would be best as far as a skirt. I love this shirt paired with red too, either a red lip, red pump, maybe a clutch. Also it would look cute with a cropped sweater on top so you can see the bottom of the shirt and collar of the shirt. That’s a really cute look :)

  2. If you ever have a contest for a person to get a makeover. Your show on Monday must have been a repeat from last season.
