Fall Favorites 2014: The Denim Shirt

We love fall here at Shopping Blitz. Sure we love the cool weather hikes, warm drinks and playing in fallen leaves, but what we really live for is replenishing our fall wardrobe! Blame it on years of back-to-school shopping, but once September / October hits we are pulling out our wallets and drooling over the season’s latest offerings. This year we are especially into simple, neutral pieces that can be reused for fall and winter. Remember simple does not have mean to boring. To us a classic piece is worth its weight in gold.

Case in point: the versatility of a good denim shirt is almost immeasurable. You can wear it with it your colored skinny pants and an awesome pair of booties for a drool-worthy casual look. Tuck them into a pair of dress trousers and add some knock-em-dead heels for a classy look all your own. The options are endless! Tell us your favorite look. We love learning new style tricks!

Manufacturer Spotlight: Caswell-Massey

I grew up in a house where things like decorative hand towels, fancy soaps and a spotless mirror were important. It was also a house that revered brands like Caswell-Massey, the elite of the elite in the hand soap and personal products industry. My mother treasured their gems like they were gold. She made it a point to instill me in the idea that its the details that really pull a thing off.

So when we acquired the Caswell-Massey brand, suffice it to say I was excited on a personal level. Opening the boxes and bottles and smelling the sweet smell of Almond, intoxicating scent of Sandalwood and the familiar notes of their Number Six line, reminded me why the brand had such success. Buying my own decorative soaps for the bathroom I realized that what makes a product timeless is in the details.

Some of my favorite products include:

The Almond & Aloe Hand Cream with Silk is a luxuriously rich, yet quickly absorbing natural hand cream. Silk protein makes hands silky to the touch, never greasy. Made with pure sweet almond oil, one of the most common essential oils used in skincare and aromatherapy because it adaptable for almost all skin types. It is rich in Vitamin E and has numerous moisturizing properties. Plus it smells awesome in the shower and doesn’t leave my skin feeling like a dried up cactus.

Elixir of Love Body Dust¬†is the kind or product made for antique dressing tables and corsets made of lace. Caswell-Massey conjures the delicate beauty of its past with an exclusive women’s fragrance, based on centuries-old formula. It has a lightly floral fragrance, blending Jasmine, Lavender, Egyptian Musk, and Passionflower. Looking for something thats add class to sexy, this is it.

Great for sensitive skin the Goat’s Milk & Honey Soap is rich with proteins, mineral salts, vitamins and liposomes. The delicate honey fragrance works equally well on the body and face. Each soap comes individually wrapped and triple milled for a creamy lather, helping to restore skin’s natural beauty. Most of the time sensitive-skin types like myself miss out of the sweet-smelling treats of the bath product world. I look at this soap as a chocolate bar with no calories, a unicorn, aka a find in a million.
