I'm positively smitten with Smitten NYC and I think you will be too. Prices are affordable, the selection is unique but totally wearable, and comfort is key. Its name is inspired by the '40s romance comic books — cute, right? So there's a vintage feel in all of designer Michael Simon's pieces, but modernity also reigns. The latest selection includes shredded-sleeve sweaters, fringe tops, draped dresses, beaded vests, and more. Go on, get smitten.
Even if you don't like to admit it, looks matter. Both our own and those of the people we date. It deems us as shallow if we place too much emphasis on appearance, but when it comes down to it, that's what initially attracts us to one another.
I'm always fascinated by people's reaction to the looks discussion and my friends over at Smitten touched upon this topic in a fun, cheeky way. They posed some great questions and I'd like to ask all of you one of them: Would you rather be the better looking one in your relationship?
To combat the impending Winter and the lagging economy, last week Smitten challenged its readers to list five of their favorite simple pleasures in life. By making ourselves more aware of the good things around us, we can take our minds off of the things in our lives that aren't going as well as we'd like. It's all about the power of positive thinking, so if you're a person who tends to see the glass as half empty, this is perfect for you! My simple pleasures for today: a good night's sleep, a hot shower, and a sunny day. What are yours?
