Black Friday.

   Outfit Details | Coat (J Crew), Top (J Crew, still available on eBay), Skirt (Topshop via Nordstroms), Shoes (Sole Society via Nordstroms), Sunglasses (Karen Walker), Rings (Etsy), Lipstick (YSL Glossy Stain #1). I know I’m a little late to the “Thanksgiving” blog post but I wanted to fully focus on spending time with my family and loved ones. So, instead I am doing a “Black Friday” post to support all of you who braved the cold air, early mornings, and crowds of people to get the most amazing shopping deals of the season. Last year, I actually participated in Black Friday for the first time and, while I have to admit that it was exhilarating for a bargain shopper like myself, I learned that I am more of a “Cyber Monday” type of gal. Nowadays, we don’t even have to wait until Cyber Monday since most of the insane online deals now start on Thanksgiving day and last throughout the weekend. Plus, who doesn’t LOVE online shopping?! For my Thanksgiving festivities, I decided on what some would deem a “fancy” outfit. As you can see, this included a skirt, a sequin top, and heels. I often find that I am always the girl that’s overdressed for every occasion. I used to be embarrassed of this label, but now I find that I love being overdressed and I will take any occasion to dress up. So, the next time you’re debating whether or not you want to glam it up for an occasion, try an outfit that you may think is too fancy. You may find that feeling fancy makes you feel great! I hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving. Enjoy your holiday time! P.S. J Crew is offering 30% off your ENTIRE order and so is ASOS. Also, Piperlime is offering 25% off your entire order and and additional 40% off sale! There are too many sales to list here so browse the cyber sales from the comfort of your own couch. Enjoy!

13 Items That You Need For Fall 2013.

  J Crew Turtleneck Sweater / J Crew T-shirt / J Crew Leather Pocket Sweater / ASTR Skirt / J.Crew Minnie Pants / J.Crew Pointy-Toe Pumps / J Crew Scarf / Rag and Bone Hat / J Crew Belt / Karen Walker Sunglases/ Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain / Essie Bordeaux Nailpolish / J Crew Herringbone Vest Fall is one of my favorite times of the year to shop. I love the layering, the accessories, the sweaters, the hats, well pretty much everything! 1.) J Crew Minnie Pants: This season, slim fitting pants are a must. The J Crew ones that are shown above will not only keep you warm (they are made from bi-stretch wool), but they will never stretch out! I have a few pairs of these pants and they are incredible. Every woman should add a pair to her closet. They easily tuck into boots and can easily be dressed up or down, depending on what you need them for. 2.) J Crew Turtleneck Sweater: This piece is just so cozy looking and will keep your neck warm if you don’t feel like wearing a scarf! I would wear this sweater with almost anything and believe that it would be a great layering piece to get you through the cold months of fall and winter. 3.) J Crew T-shirt: I love love love graphic t-shirts these days. The script used on this one is very cute and I can see this layered over or  under a chambray button down shirt, tucked into a skirt, or worn under a sweater. 4.) ASTR Skirt: I actually own this faux leather skirt and think that it is such a versatile piece for any wardrobe. I love the a-line style of this skirt and believe that it would look great with a graphic tee and/or a chunky sweater and booties. 5.) Rag and Bone Hat: If you haven’t noticed, hats, especially fedoras, are huge this fall. They are very flattering for most face shapes and add a little extra something to your outfit. Plus, they keep your hair in check without giving you hat hair! Take the plunge and buy one for yourself. 6.) J Crew Belt: This has been on my wish list for quite sometime. By now, you know that I love leopard and J Crew seems to really know how to make their own leopard print irresistible to me! I would wear this with skirts, over coats, with jeans, and with dresses! The possibilities are endless! 7.) J Crew Leather Pocket Sweater: I own this sweater and it is a great piece for fall. It is heavy enough to keep you warm but not too heavy where you feel claustrophobic. The leather pocket detail is amazing and so chic. 8.) J Crew Pointy Toe Pumps: I love metallic heels and J Crew really knows how to make their metallic colors pop. I love the ankle straps on these pumps because they give them such a feminine feel. I would wear these with everything. 9.) Karen Walker Sunglasses: My loves. These are the most unique and beautiful sunglasses that I have ever owned. They are very expensive, but you can find them on eBay for around half the price. 10.) J Crew Scarf: Loving plaid this fall and this scarf’s beautiful red print would look so festive with your holiday outfits. 11.) YSL Glossy Stain: My #1 lipstick obssession. These lipsticks go on like glosses but stain like a lipstick! They also stay on ALL day through everything. Check them out! 12.) Essie Bordeaux Nail Polish: I always love a good bordeaux nail polish and this Essie one is perfect for fall. 13.) J Crew Herringbone Vest: My ultimate layering piece. This vest is so amazing and I was so glad that I was able to snag it when I had the chance. If you feel like splurging, look for it on eBay. I swear, it’s worth it. What are some of your favorite pieces for fall?
