AND OH MY GOODNESS…on WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT 7:30 I opened this e-mail.
Is this some kind of sick joke?
Well, I tell ya something.
I’m not laughing. I’m SHOPPING MY BUTT OFF.
I’m just hoping they still have things in my size.
They have a good amount of items (BUT YOU HAVE TO SCROLL TO THE page 5 before you start seeing the Flash Sale items) that are included in this sale (some new, some old).
It ends tomorrow morning at 10:00 am eastern.
Click HERE to SHOP and then click the red SALE on the right hand side!!!!!

The Bachelor might be Shay’s favorite show, but Dancing With The Stars is my favorite show.
It’s obviously GREAT fun to watch all of the dancing, but every season I am caught off guard at how the show draws me in to LOVE the people on it. I have my favorite professional dancers every season, but people who I think I could care less about as a “celebrity” end up drawing me in and making me care about them.
Did anybody watch the season with Jerry Springer?
He was absolutely delightful.
Did you hear what I just said?
Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!
Watching the judges interact is also great fun. They are a hoot!
(this pic is from a previous season)
And Tom Bergeron?
Well…..America’s Funniest Home Videos Tom Bergeron is annoying as heck.
But Dancing With The Stars Tom Bergeron is sweet, funny, and charming.
I would obviously be watching it (seeing that I’m a super fan and all) even if Sean wasn’t on it, but him being on it is just the icing on the cake!
I’m pretty sure Derek has it in his contract that his partner must be GORGEOUS and a bangin’ dancer. He ALWAYS gets awesome partners.
And listen, I have a new girlfriend.
Move over Selma…Kellie Pickler is the new girl in town.
She’s got some good boobies and the tiniest little waist I’ve ever seen.
And her hair is short because she shaved it all off to support a friend with cancer. So sweet.
Score = 21
I’ve already fallen in love with Victor because of his backstory. (If you didn’t see the show, his mom and his dad both walked out on the family, and he raised his brothers and sisters.)
I know they said Lindsay is 19..but they’ve gotta be lying, right? I’m thinking 14.
He wasn’t great…but I think he is one of those people that is going to consistently get better.
Score = 18
Kim and Ingo
I already love Ingo because I am a General Hospital girl. And I LOVE Kim too!
They make a great couple on the dance floor.
They performed the first ever contemporary routine on Dancing, and I think
they did a phenomenal job even though I don’t really “get” contemporary.
It’s a lot of throwing, and lunging, and running, and crawling, and some writhing.
See above for some of the crawling and writhing.
A little weird, but it was AWESOME.
Score = 20
Lisa and Gleb (hottie new pro) danced the Foxtrot
Ok. I’m a BIG Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan, so I was so excited to learn that Lisa was going to be one of the celebrities this season!
I googled how old Lisa is, and mama is 52 years old.
Mama’s body looks AMAZING!
I agree with Len, it was “acceptable, but not exceptional”.
Lisa played all coy and shy, but she is gonna have to loosen up a bit if she wants to stick around.
Score = 18
D.L. and Cheryl danced the ChaCha
I felt badly for him. Not so good.
He took the criticism well, and I give him points for that.
He said the judges critiquing him was just about as fair as “bullying a 2nd grader”. 🙂
I’m thinking his scores might have been a little better if we would have just stood like he is in the picture and let Cheryl shake her thang around him for the entire song.
Score = 12
Zendaya (Disney Channel star) and Val
Val, she’s 16, so hands off.
(If you watch the show, we all know that Val and his partner last season, Kelly Monaco, were having lots and lots of extra dance practices……in the bedroom…..if you know what I mean.)
They did contemporary too, and did a mighty fine job. The choreography was awesome, and they looked incredible dancing together.
I do have one note.
I’m pretty sure Pinterest did NOT tell him to wear those yellow shoes with those blue striped socks.
Score = 24
And I think it should have been even higher!
Sean and Peta
First off…..Awwwwwwwwww! Loved seeing the family pics with his parents and Shay.
And Sherri (Sean’s mama) looked BEAUTIFUL in the audience!
I laughed so hard during their rehearsal piece.
Sean talked about there being “lots of moving parts” that he has to get to flow together. True that.
Peta said “you can kinda like grab yourself a little bit” and Sean was all “whoah”.
I thought it was HILARIOUS.
Sean said “What I lack in raw talent I will make up for in dedication.” I bet that is sooo true and that he consistently improves each and every week.
And look at this shot! Wowza!
Len said “You’re posture was good and I liked your footwork….
your dancing needs to be more refined.”
Bruno said he was “HUNKY” and I’m betting ol’ Seanie might be Bruno’s favorite contestant right out of the gate! 😉 He said “For a dance virgin you have a very effective pelvic thrust.” Funny! He also said it was a little rough….to which Carrie Ann replied “I liked it rough”
She also said Sean has “fearless exuberance that is going to take you so far in this competition.”
She thinks he’s going to go far, and I sure hope she’s right!
Score = 19
Aly and Mark danced the Cha Cha Cha
I think Mark is one of the best choreographers on the show, so I hope they stick around for a little bit.
I think Aly has potential, but she needs to let loose.
I feel like her time in the Olympics might have beaten all of the fun out of her.
Score = 21
Dorothy and Tristan
She is very cute and seems super sweet.
They got Contemporary too.
It snowed on stage, and the judges really liked it.
I was a little bored, but I was happy for her.
And I applaud Tristan for not waxing his chest hair.
Score = 21
Wynona and Tony
In her intro piece, Wynona said she went from “welfare to millionaire”. LOVED that.
The dancing wasn’t great, but like Len, I thought she did a great job
“showing rythym and personality”.
She WORKED IT!
Her mom (Naomi Judd) and sister (Ashley Judd) were in the audience, and my beliefs that Naomi is an interesting mix of precious and first class wackadoodle were confirmed.
(Sidenote – I was talking with my mom about the show yesterday, and she asked which one of the girls was caught shoplifting. I was sooooo confused. And then I realized what she was talking about.
Wynona RYDER was caught shoplifting mom. CLASSIC mom story!) 🙂
Score = 18
Andy and Sharna (new pro)
I admit it, at first I was all like “ANDY DICK? ON DANCING WITH THE STARS?
WHAT the WHAT?”
But….he’s already changed my mind.
He talked about his drinking and drug use in the past and said “It’s been a bad couple of decades.” and I was all “uh-huh”.
He also said “he is currently sober, and working hard at it.”
He seems so humble and so super grateful. Very sweet.
My favorite quote from Andy was when he tearfully said “This is the biggest opportunity I’ve ever had, and it’s so undeserved, because I’ve screwed up so many times.”
Then he told his partner “I am your bit#^.”
Len said “It had the fluidity of Robocop.” but Carrie Ann thought it had a charm and I totally agreed.
And I loved how it was so obvious how much the cast just LOVES him by the way they all jumped up to hug him.
One things for sure, I am routing for him!
I can guarantee you this, he is going to cha cha his way into America’s hearts.
Mark my words.
Score = 17
Jacoby and Karina danced the Cha Cha Cha
His mama was so cute in the taped piece.
And Len better watch out, or his mama will put the beat down on him.
The boy can move.
Although, I was a bit distracted by Karina’s costume.
Is it weird that I kept thinking about how awful I would look in it?
And listen, I’m a speech therapist, and I didn’t understand a good 90% of what he said.
Score = 20
So, that was the Season Premier, and I was pretty impressed! I am very excited for the season!
Here is what Dancing With The Stars Told Me To Do…
(And listen, I’m not sure if every week I’m going to be able to pull off an outfit recreation with my recap, but I tried really hard for this first week!)
I used Zendaya’s costume as inspiration and put blue, mustard, and a pattern together.
Not something I would have put together on my own, and it’s totally edgey…but kind of cool.
Do you like the outfit? Or is it too far out there for you?
And…just for fun…I thought I would feature some great shoes.
The only place I ever wear heels (seriously rare for me to wear heels) is to church or to a wedding. And even then, my poor little toes can barely stand it.
I think the rope detail is such a nice touch. I can see these with khaki shorts and a colored t-shirt all summer long. Yeah…I think I will be getting these for myself.

And Banana Republic has a crazy amount of gorgeous flats out right now.

Only 11 pair show up, but those 11 just represent the 11 different shapes. Each shape has different patterns and colors for each of them. So, click on the shape you like to see the different options available!
Or what about THIS gorgeous pair? Love the patent, love the bow.
