KocoSky Review

Saturday, December 18, 2010


Confidence starts with what you wear...

It all began as a notion in the heart of a young girl to one day be able to share with the world her love for dresses. Over the years, that notion slowly transformed into something bigger and became an exciting reality.

KocoSky is an online boutique that carries a sophisticated collection of contemporary dresses and accessories for the woman who wants to look and feel good in what she wears.

KocoSky is known for their unwavering commitment to provide quality, superb customer service, and a great online shopping experience, all the while bringing you the latest styles in fashion. Their sophisticated collection consists of an array of the most innovative, unique and inspirational fashion inspired and created by up and coming designers. They carefully select up-to-the-minute styles that accentuate and flatter a woman’s body and continually aspire to do so because after all, nothing stands still in fashion.


I tried the Angelina Dress ($89) on immediately after receiving it today and I love how perfectly it fits. It is form-fitting and will highlight the best features. This dress features a seam descending from the faux knot detail at the right front hip, which opens up revealing a peekaboo appeal. The slit on the side adds a touch of flirtatiousness. True to name, the Angelina Dress is charming, classy, sexy, and can steal someone's boyfriend if you're not careful. With this dark and seductive dress, you can play up every facet of your personality. The Gunmetal Grey adds demure, yet alluring coloring for extra elegance. Don't be surprised when you walk into a room and start being lavished with a litany of compliments!

I usually wear basic black when going to the gym, but I decided to shy away from that color this time by choosing the Margarita Activewear World Peace Pants ($105) and Margarita Activewear World Peace Jacket ($95) in Blue, which is more of a beautiful shade of Baby Blue. I just love the pants, because they're snug fitting without sacrificing comfort and they hug curves in the right places. The fit is still great after several washes! They also make my legs look longer and leaner. The jacket fits great as well. I love putting it on when going for a morning walk. This is perfect for someone who is all about world peace.

Holiday Season Identity Theft: What to Know from National Expert John Sileo

Thursday, December 02, 2010

76% of us plan to primarily shop this holiday with credit or debit cards. However, almost four in ten of surveyed shoppers have little or no concern about identity fraud happening to them this holiday shopping season! John Sileo works with the Dept of Defense, FDIC, AARP, and dozens more companies and brands you trust. He has been featured on 60 Minutes, Fox News and others.



Identity theft is rampant throughout the holiday season. Over the past 3 years stolen data being used in less than one week jumped from 33% to 71%, meaning that they steal today and shop today. Identity thieves count on our lackadaisical attitude toward monitoring our wealth.

Over 50% of all Identity theft is self detected. Here are a few tips to stay safe and keep an eye out for Identity Fraud this Holiday Season:


Monitor Your Credit Report - Look for any suspicious activity or unknown accounts. If you find anything new that you haven't applied for contact the responsible financial institution immediately.

Credit Monitoring Services
- Services that companies like CSIdentity offer make it easy to ensure that fraudsters aren't accessing your personal information, accounts, or credit. Allowing them to do it for you will put you more at ease this Holiday Season.

Sign Up for Account Alerts - This way you will know immediately if anyone is making fraudulent charges on your account.

Switch to Online Statements - This way you can more easily access your accounts throughout the month rather than waiting until the end of the month for a statement.

Wall Flower Jeans Review

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

Wall Flower Jeans are designed for the coming of age fashionista. She’s reinventing herself from the sweet, innocent child she was, to a fashion forward, confident young woman with a strong sense of individuality and a fresh perspective on the world. She’s blooming into the “it-girl” that other girls envy, and boys want to get to know. And she loves a great pair of jeans. With the latest washes and styles, Wall Flower makes it easy to stay ahead of the trends without breaking the bank.

Available at most major department stores and specialty stores nationwide.



Wall Flower Jeans sent me three different pairs of jeans to try out, review, and keep. They arrived on a day when I just got back home from JCPenney after buying three other pairs of jeans. Needless to say, I felt like I was in denim heaven that day!

I've mentioned before that I am super picky about jeans, but this brand was not a disappointment at all. This brand offers everything I look for in a pair jeans - comfort, exceptional fit, and loads of style. Plus, you don't have to worry about breaking the bank since most of their jeans are under $50. The affordability doesn't sacrifice the quality either! I believe that I've found my new favorite line of jeans. Despite the name, this line certainly isn't for a wallflower, because you will get noticed!

Adopt an Angel Before December 10th This Holiday Season

Now that we are in the thick of the Holiday season (it's December already!) I thought you might be thinking about ways you can give back this year for those less fortunate this holiday season. I wanted to let you know that The Salvation Army and JCPenney have teamed up again this year for The Angel Giving Tree Online Program.



The program allows customers to adopt an ‘angel’ (a needy child or senior) and then shop for gifts for their angel this holiday season - a great effort to create positive change and give back this holiday season.

Every user can adopt their angel based on location, sex and age and then choose items off the child/senior’s list to give them for the holidays. In collaboration with UPS, Angel Giving Tree gifts purchased through jcp.com can be shipped free of charge to a local Salvation Army collection center.

To learn more about the program and to adopt an angel yourself head here: http://jcp.com/angel

The program is really perfect for those who want to participate but don’t have the free time to head out to the store – you can just register online and purchase everything from your home! Friday, December 10th marks the deadline for supporting children and seniors in need through The JCPenney Angel Giving Tree program. (December 14th if you choose to gift your angel JCPenney giftcards).

The Ellie Jean Review

Tuesday, November 30, 2010



The "ellie" jean is designed and sewn in Los Angeles USA specifically to benefit the ellie fund. A generous portion of the selling price goes directly to the ellie fund, which is dedicated to helping women undergoing breast cancer treatment and their families.



My Thoughts: I chose to review the "Ellie" Bootcut Jeans ($119). For someone who is uber picky when it comes to jeans, I love the fit and style of these jeans. Not all brands are true to the size, but this brand nailed it right when it comes down to size. These darkwash, bootcut, mid-rise jeans are made with 98% Cotton and 2% Spandex to ensure an exceptional fit and dreamy like comfort. Pardon my lack of tactfulness, but you will love your booty in these jeans! With all of that being said, these designer jeans are made with the utmost quality. They're perfect for any day and will give you a surge of confidence since they will make you look good. This company offers two models, a curvy bootcut and a high rise straight leg. Between the two, they can fit a lot of women!
