I'm sorry we took last Friday off...at the risk of making you all envious, we were in Mexico celebrating one of our closest friends' wedding nuptials, and I couldn't pull myself away from the poolside margaritas and great company to get to my computer.
But this week, I am back at it, and bringing you a mix of Fall staples and stylish must-haves at discounted prices.
Thought we'd open the gates with a Fall must have. This Joie wool blend jacket is equal parts classic and cozy. With a navy blue base and a charcoal gray trim and collar, this wrap around jacket would look just as good with over-the-knee boots and leather leggings as it would over skinny sweats and sneakers. Wear it to Thanksgiving dinner, or wear it on an airplane as a cozy and chic travel companion. It will never go out of style and has been marked down to $350 from almost $600 with all sizes left. Value is not in the cost of the item, but rather in how many times you will wear it. I assure you, this chic coat will be worn constantly.
This dress made the Friday Buy Day cut for so many reasons...the first being it's versatility. Wear it with low-heeled booties and a chunky sweater for Happy Hour with the ladies, or try it with a leather jacket and an ankle wrapped heel for a friend's Birthday Party. It is supremely flattering and the zipper detailing adds a nice edge. It is priced at under $120 and doesn't have a season or a time-stamp. When you feel nothing else will do in your closet, you will be so thankful that you have this...
I am very careful about recommending high-heels or high wedges because of the comfort consideration. I can't stand (literally) to wear uncomfortable shoes yet sometimes the most beautiful 5 inch stiletto has me wishing I would sacrifice the pain for the beauty of the shoe. These Pedro Garcia wedges do not require any sacrifice. They are the perfect dark taupe color that goes with black, cream, navy, green or grey and the perfect shape and height to balance the flare denim that is on every magazine cover. Pair these beauties with a wide leg jean and a chunky knit sweater and embrace your new favorite (and most flattering) pairing.
If you buy nothing else this week, this is what you should buy...and quickly while your size is still available. This brand, Muubaa, makes amazing leather goods, and we know because we own multiple pieces. Their pieces rarely go on sale and this perfect black leather jacket has all sizes in stock at 50% OFF the original price! At barely over $300, this jacket has quality craftsmanship, calfskin leather and an edgy yet wearable design. A little helpful note: the sizing is UK sizing which typically translates to one size smaller in the US (Ie: UK-sz 4 is US-sz 2) however, they run a little small...so keep this in mind! Amazing jacket, amazing price...
Obsessed with this cropped chunky knit. The classic color combination allows the fringe and the shape to feel current without feeling over-the-top. For a boho look, I love it styled with another mismatched print, or for a more modern look I love it styled with a black racer-back tank, grey skinny jeans and booties. The reasonable price ($120) is a total mis-match for the ridiculously chic Parisian elements of this stylish sweater.
Not real (or) faux leather leggings, but these are a great alternative. With a faux-leather piping down the leg for a flattering and elongating look, these leggings will come in handy this Fall/Winter. Pair with a chunky sweater and sneakers, or try them with over-the-knee boots, a tunic and the fitted black leather jacket (above). Washable, wearable and totally affordable (on sale for $66).
And then this happened. OMG. This Valentino studded cuff is all you will need this Season (or next) to bring your outfit to another level. Wear it with a tank, jeans and heels. Wear it with a black sweater dress and booties. Wear it with a midi skirt and cropped blouse to a Holiday party. On sale for $300 (yes, I repeat...it is on SALE) this is the only jewelry you should be buying. We are all guilty of getting seduced by costume jewelry....$70 here, $55 there...save yourself the buyer's remorse and the wasted money. Get yourself (or your friend, or your wife, or your mom...) a piece with some lasting power and buy this bracelet: it is timeless, edgy, versatile and modern.
Hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day! Happy Shopping....
