Breathe… and Eat Peanut Butter & Pomegranate!

Gal Pals sometimes it’s so necessary to just make something nice for yourself. To sit down and give yourself a minute to eat and not only eat but  be grateful for what lies on your plate. And I don’t just mean all of your responsibilities.  I made appoint to do this the other day with […]

Oh HEY! You Value Vixen you…

Gal Pals, if there’s one thing I hope you always take with you when you #shopforwhatpops is that VALUE is always what we’re looking for! Sure, you can hop on and off the trend train season to season but what you’ll notice is that because they are “trend items” you’ll wear them a few times […]

Polishedly Invited with Invitations by David’s Bridal*

Gal Pals, there’s something so blissful about getting ready to put names and a date on your wedding invitation. The only word to describe this feeling is ”giddy.” Like the same feeling you’d get if you’ve ever practiced the spelling of your crushes’ last name in the back of your high-school notebook… I can say I’ve practiced that name […]

Pop an Orchid Monotone!

When you’re Polished for Pennies, or “P4P” as we like to say, you’ve got to look at everything with an eye for transformation!

Color Mixing? Why NOT!

Gals, there is no better way to boost your mood than to think of spring/summer and throw on a COLOR!! YES… A COLOR!! We found this gorgeous dress  at “The Nest”. It’s a vintage number, that has major Zipfactor, a color combo of electric blue and purple to lush over, and can be switched and […]

Jewelry Haul from Nordstrom Rack*

  Nothing makes me feel more successful and powerful, than a good deal! The feeling that you’re walking out of the store, or excuse me, skipping out of the store because you just out-smarted your wallet. You’ve just made your own day! Well that’s exactly what I felt after a recent trip to Nordstrom Rack […]

My Vintage Easter Outfit for $14!

     Every Easter I’m transported back to the kids table at my Mommom’s house. Sipping slowly a red wine spritzer, making eye contact with my cousins thinking we’re getting a “buzz”. Eating the most delicious traditional Italian food in gluttony until the ribbons on our Easter dresses had to be undone. Feeling the feelings of love and […]

SNOW POP!

I know for some snow means sadness, and I get it! Trust me… it can be freezing and no fun when it comes to how inconvenient it can be for your car and your style! BUT… Turning your freezing frowns upside with a POPPIN’ attitude can not only brighten your style but your attitude towards […]

GET A GOOD HAIR DAY EVERYDAY!

Gal Pals… I have to literally DO my hair every single day. No seriously, like… DO IT. Curling iron, blow dryer, hair spray, hair protector, and more hair spray every single day for work. Which leaves me feeling pretty afterwards, but the initial act sometimes feels like an uphill climb where I’m already exhausted by […]

SPRING FLING*

   Gal Pals, as you know the Philadelphia weather has been bonkers recently! One day its hot the other day its cold, and on those days, does it not feel like you’re left out in the cold when it comes to knowing what to wear?! Before you know it you’re walking out the door wearing […]

Peek-A-Boo Valentine

There’s something so lovely about lingerie and when I was dreaming up Blushing January, one of the first things that popped in my head were visions of delicate bralettes and drawers floating in a foggy dream bubble… So I thought to myself, why hide them all the time? All that beautiful lacey goodness we buy them for […]

Freezing Can Be Fun in Faux Fur :)

When you’ve got to wrap yourself in layers to hide from the low temps, faux fur is my go to piece of style. And this time of year you can find faux for a bargain! Whether you’re thinking of laying it around your neck as a scarf, hugging shoulders in a short coat, or layering a […]

Mod MoGal

We’re not afraid to take some chances and neither is PolishedC! This look was obviously inspired by the swinging sixties and is most certainly mod without the modesty! Yeah baby she looks like a MO-GAL!  It’s flirty, feminine, and we’re making statements with statement pieces that don’t have to cost you a lot of money. […]
