let me take a selfie

I loved the recent headline, “Selfies linked to Narcissism, Addiction and Mental Illness.” Really? My immediate thought: was that not obvious on a certain level before the study was released? I was surprised the story surprised people.

Don’t get me wrong: I love a selfie as much as the next person. Grabbing a selfie of me and my kiddies, with friends during a fun night out, or with my guy during a date night. I even love posting and sharing outfit selfies, or a random one here and there within the confines of this blog’s social media of a new lipstick find or how I’m wearing my new wavy ‘do, for example.  I love seeing what others are wearing, so I recognize that some people might have  a general interest in mine. It’s like people watching in the 21 century! Instead of being the creepster staring at a girl’s awesome outfit at the mall (LOL, guilty), I can get inspiration from my Instagram feed.

shopbop sale

OK, are you guys Shopbop addicted, too? I might have a secret love affair with online shopping (ok, not so secret anymore) with my favorites that are shops that offer free shipping and returns — primarily Shopbop and Piperlime — or are close enough for easy returns. Anyway, I digress. Shopbop is having its mega huge Friends & Family sale with 25% off the entire web site, through today. Use code INTHEFAMIL14 at checkout.

TAGG’s favorites here:

Yes, I fully just splurged on this amazing leopard pajamas set. Obsessed.

Update that underwear drawer with Hanky Panky… so many great styles!

These espadrilles are my favorite; I have three styles and counting. They’re oh so perfect for weekend.

The silver version of the wedges in yesterday’s post are a must; I’m debating this pair as well.

I’ve been eying this new Tory Burch shape (with adjustable strap)…  the camel and orange colors are so covetable!

The perfect pair of white denim, in a classic style.

OMG, this tank is my new favorite find; the colors are so good, and how fun is that back detail? The pink is on its way to me. Score.

Anything Kate Spade has me swooning. For example, is this ultra dressy watch perfect for wedding season or what?

Could these heels with tassel detail be any more special? Love.


Truckstop Committee
All my South Florida friends! Your official social season might be wrapping up, but make sure it’s not before attending this week’s two awesome events. Excited to be involved in both — I mean who says no to food trucks especially when it can help a friend, and to a fashionable girls night out!

Mark your calendar for the following…hope to see TAGG readers there; be sure to say hi!

TRUCKSTOP! // Wednesday, April 16 from 6-9 pm
100 percent of the proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society; that’s the committee in the above photo
Sample bites from food trucks, sip on creative cocktails, taste cold pressed juices and more! This event directly supports one of my best and most talented friends, Aime Dunstan, who owns it! Events & Media, is an amazing mom, and…. recent Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor. Girl didn’t even skip a beat, despite weekly chemo treatments. She’s a rockstar, and knows how to throw a party (it is her job!); this food truck bash is going to be goooood.


Next up…
