Memorial Day Weekend Sale Alert!

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us and you know what that means!! Sure, a long weekend, no work on Monday, drinks and plenty of sunshine, but also – SALES! We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites with  great pieces from each one to make things juuuuust a little easier! Happy shopping 🙂

First up Every girl has to have the perfect pair of jeans. This weekend take an extra 25% off Sale items from one of our favorite denim brands – 3×1.


I’ll let you in on a little secret – we loveeee our Calvins. Take 25% Calvin Klein Underwear!


Last, but definitely not least – Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly sale is going on now through June 4th.  There are almost too many good pieces to highlight – almost!

One of my favorite trends right now is slinky midi dresses. These incredibly affordable options will have you feeling effortlessly chic for work or play during the warm summer months.


If you’re like me, you wear out your favorite shoes and each year when summer rolls around you are in serious need for a new go-to pair! Here are some great options:

Have a great weekend, lovelies! xx 

Spotlight on: OTK Boots

Reb here! If there’s one thing that I love about Cath, it’s her innovative, dynamic style that transcends any given season. You can find her wearing slip dresses in the winter and sweaters in the summer and most recently I’ve noticed her proclivity for wearing Over The Knee boots during any season.

The Perfect Summer Caftan

This past weekend we celebrated Catherine’s wedding to Kevin and it is safe to say that it lived up to our expectations and then some – well actually a lot more.  I won’t give away too many details; I’ll let Catherine do that when she’s ready to share some photos from the big day! I will say that we danced into the wee hours of Friday morning to the likes of Bieber, Spice Girls + Britney Spears, champagne in hand. And now, Catherine is down south in West Palm Beach enjoying her honeymoon with Kevin and I am extreeeeeemely jealous; I’m sure you all are too.  (more…)

Spotlight on: Culottes

In honor of Catherine’s nuptials this weekend, I thought I would do a little round up of the @cathclaire favorite: Culottes! No matter the time of year, you can find Cath wearing her favorite pair of denim culottes, a dressier pair of black ones, or a chic version of a gaucho style (not sure this is the best way to put it, but hey, you get it).  

Reb’s Wedding Revisited

As we enter Catherine’s wedding week, naturally, we are revisiting some of our favorite moments from my wedding. We thought it would be fun to do a little round up of pieces inspired by my wedding, so we can do the same for Catherine once we get her photos back.  I still love looking through my wedding photos and it’s always hard to choose my favorites. However, I will highlight a few favorite shots of the details, the bridesmaids dresses, the getting-ready gear and of course, the shoes, in case there are any bride-to-be’s out there looking for a little inspo or friends looking to remember the fun we had at The Homestead!

May Baby

I have come to the conclusion that one of my “talents” (aka favorite past times) is the mere act of celebrating and I will use just about any excuse to do so. I am a lover of dance floors, birthdays, New Years, Halloween, and well… all holidays. That being said, yesterday was my birthday (May the Fourth be with you, too) and I quickly realized that everyone around me is hugely talented in the celebrating department as well. From my friends and family near and far, to ya’lls sweet messages, my fiancè, Reb, and Buddha the maltipoo – yesterday was surreal and that is just the beginning of, what I know will be, one of the best years of my life.

Forever 21 Friday

When it comes to navigating through the wonderuflness that is Forever 21, you either love it or hate it.  I have been shopping there since I was 13 and several people have told me I am “good” at Forever 21, Reb included. A shopaholic-induced broke girl is kinda forced to be good at Forever 21, am I right?

In Praise of Femininity: March to Mother’s Day

Over the course of history, femininity has been confused with weakness, but everyone reading this post knows the unwavering strength that the women in their life possess and we are certainly no exception. We are both so lucky to have such inspiring women in our lives; from our mothers, sisters and best friends to generations before us. It is safe to say that there is no shortage of amazing women surrounding us! The strength that they have shown us is a driving force on this little journey that we call life.  They keep us inspired daily and The Crystal Press would not be what it is today without the love and support of these amazing women.
