Designer-Looking Accessories for Less Giveaway!

Everything She Wants is always on the lookout for a bargain.  So to my delight, I received an email from Evan Carraway Wortman, owner of an online women's jewelry and accessories boutique called Mimi's the look for less.

Mixed Metal Square Studs,  $22
The family business was launched nearly two years ago by Evan and her Mom.  And from statement necklaces to eye-catching stud earrings, most items on Mimi's are under $45.

"Accessories are so expensive, and if they were decently priced they usually looked cheap," explains Evan.  "We wanted to give women great looking things that weren't crazy expensive."

The site was named after Evan's great aunt, Mimi. "She was so cute and loved jewelry," she says.  "Even in her 90s, she wore fun jewelry."

To introduce Everything She Wants' readers to Mimi's, I'm giving away a trendy, Large-Face Silver Watch (retail value, $30).  The watch has a band that can be adjusted to fit, and is a take on an oversized Michael Kors watch that retails for more than seven times the price of the Mimi's version.

Large-Face Silver Watch, $30

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green

David's Bridal Has Fun, Flirty and Fab Party Dresses for Fall 2011

Everything She Wants wishes the David's Bridal store in Manhattan was open when I exchanged "I do's."  The budget-friendly brand offers a bevy of beautiful wedding dresses that start at $299 (with many on sale for under $100), and are available from size 0 to 16 and 16W to 26W for plus-size brides.  Designer gowns by Vera Wang (White by Vera Wang), Oleg Cassini and Galina are priced higher. Stylist  Nicole Brewer  works with David's Bridal and walked me through an exclusive blogger preview at the spacious, light-filled Chelsea store. New for fall 2011, David's Bridal introduced the modern DB Studio Collection inspired by the hottest looks from the red carpet and the biggest royal wedding in decades. So get your Kate and Pippa replicas online and at select DB stores. Me in dress pick #1 with stylist Nicole Brewer. The biggest surprise, however, is the brand's stylish selection of special occasion and party dresses that start at just $79.9

4 Travel Essentials for a Clean and Safe Trip

Travel takes a lot more planning and preparation these days.  If you're like me, in addition to packing versatile and comfy clothing, accessories and footwear, and essential toiletries and beauty products, your travel checklist also includes several PPE options. KN95 masks, hand sanitizer, antibacterial wipes and gloves. Check! To help you keep your PPE game on point, here are four new travel-sized sanitizing products that Everything She Wants recently discovered. Sanitizing Hand Wipe Mitts ($12.99 for a pack of ten) : Winter may be over, but here is a pair of mittens you might want to wear all year round. R eportedly the first wearable wipe that provides a protective liner between you and all surfaces you touch, this multi-use sanitizing mitt kills germs and 99.9% of bacteria on your hands. T his new mitt also reduces the number of wipes needed and makes it easy to keep hands safe and clean on the go – just think: no contact with hotel doorknobs, shopping carts, elevators, airport
