The Missed List - November

Thanks have been given. You’ve already blacked out that Friday. Now as you haul out the holly the only thing you you're reading during the busy holiday season are the weekly sales ads.

Take a moment (and possibly a spirit or two) for a visit from the Ghost of Lei Chic’s past with a look back at highlights from November.

Dreaming of a Write Christmas

Holiday Photo Attempt 1 – You: double chin. Him: blinking.
Holiday Photo Attempt 2 – You: blinking. Him: yelling at the football game on tv.
Holiday Photo Attempt 3 – Large dog blur running at the camera.

Clearly, getting that Christmas picture is anything but a snap.

Stop being a poser. Send your season’s greetings in stylish cards that are always letter perfect.

Web of Buys

Lei ChicBlack Friday? More like black-and-blue Friday.

It started with an elbow to your ribs in the electronics section and ended with a stiletto to your instep (heels should be declared a weapon on sale days) during a battle over the last pair of $20 boots in your besties size.

All you hobbled out with were bruises, a bad attitude and a full Christmas list.

Regain your comfort and joy without leaving your (office, admit it) computer with big discounts, free shipping, and even more from local designers,... Read more »

Sponsored Edition: Smooth Operator

Lei ChicWhen the heat is on things tend to get a little hairy.

May Pool Party – You had one mojito and a kinky moment with tbe Brazilian hottie next door.
July Beach BBQ – A round of margaritas and you got frizzy with your college crush.
August Softball Game – A few victory beers and you curled up with the office flirt.

Now, you’re stranded in an eternal game of hide-and-sneak – skulking around the hallways to avoid any new encounters.Read more »

Decoylab Clocks

You’re late. You’re late not only for a very important date, you were tardy for tea (with a couple of characters who sure were mad), got a late start at that croquet game with a real card, and were delayed for jury duty with a couple of animals.

Ever since some bunny ran off with your pocket watch, you’ve been coming in second everywhere.

But the end is in sight now that you’ve stumbled upon timepieces perfect for trips to wonderhands.

Decoylabs’ playful clocks are handcrafted for each order out of sustainable bamboo. Pulling on the Japanese art of kirie, or paper cutting, bamboo and contrasting layers of white acrylic are... Read more »

Blinging Up Baby

Lei Chic She’s all sugar. Her wardrobe, however, could definitely use some spicing up.

Those pink gingham crinoline dresses, hot pink fuzzy bear onesies, and overly-ruffled rompers are more mini-Stepford housewife than future glamour girl.

She needs some coo-er looks to baby step up her game - and you wouldn’t cry if it meant a few stylish finds for you too.

Toddle into a new store guaranteed to be a girl’s best trend.Read more »
