The Missed List - October

Pssst. Hey. I hate to bother you, but it’s getting a little crowded here in your inbox.

It wouldn’t be so bad except that “your inbox is getting full” warning’s exclamation points are digging into my back and that e-mail from your uncle keeps chortling at its own bad jokes.

It's time to clean house and I'm ready to help with our round up of Lei Chic's favorite items for October.

Lei Chic We’ll Pink to That
Chic breast cancer awareness items

You love to help a cause especially if it helps your closet. For three more days proceeds from sales of great finds such as an elegant Coach watch, shimmery Bobbi Brown gloss, or a sporty Rumbatime watch will go to breast cancer research. One big do not miss – QVC’s Shoes on Sale which offers pairs like these Vince Camuto boots at half the retail price as a fundraiser for research and education.
Everything’s coming up rosy here.

Lei Chic Shave and a Beer Cut & Beauty and the Boutique
Mojo Barbershop and Kai Boutique’s beauty bar

We don’t want to sound like we’re primping them out but these two spots offer unique his-and-hers escapes. Mojo Barbershop opens November 4 for First Friday offering old school straight razor shaves, haircuts including edging, and even facials and manicures (or as they call it, hand-and-toe detailing) with a La-Z-boy, flat screen televisions, and soon beer.
