Friday Buy Day 4.15.16

Hey party people it is Friday and we are so excited for a warm weekend here in SF (a scorcher in Palm Desert for sure)!  As usual, we have scoured the internet for the best finds at the best are our top picks this week:

Because it is definitely beginning to feel like Spring around here, we had to include a chic cover up.   This one from Eberjey is barely $100 and is flattering on all shapes and sizes!  A cotton blend with beautiful lacey draped sleeves and intricate cut-outs this bathing suit topper is feminine and chic.  

These sandals make me happy just looking at them.  The bright colors, the pom-pom fringe and the wrap around ankle are spot-on trend with zero guilt for indulging ($89).  The perfect accessory for a simple white dress, denim on denim or the cover-up above.  

Coated raspberry skinny jeans with moto-inspired zippers?  Yes, please.  Level 99 treated denim are sure to please your inner vixen and your bank account (on sale for under $100 with all sizes left except 27...).  Pair these during the day with black gladiator sandals and a draped tee shirt.  For a night out, try them with a racer-back tank, black blazer and heels.  They'll also look great come Fall with a chunky knit sweater and high-tops.

Simple, sexy, sophisticated. We love the draped neckline (add a black bralette for more coverage), the length (this dress is probably best on us girls who are under 5''s a shorty), and the 3/4 sleeve to show off a cool cuff or two.  Add an ankle-wrapped heel and a pink pout and be on your way.

This oversized Vince pullover is a great addition to your favorite basics.  Pair it with ripped denim and sandals for a chic and casual look.  Or wear it over leather leggings with sneakers for a plane flight.  Flattering on all body types and a heatherred cream color that goes with virtually everything, this pullover is now 40% off with all sizes left.

If you're in the market for a new swimsuit, this Mara Hoffman one is amazing.  The keyhole cut is sexy while the side-vents are high enough to cover any "love-handles" that might be lingering around your mid-section(:  Throw on a pair of wide leg linen pants and a straw hat and you will surely be the chicest guest at the pool.


Lastly, we'd be remiss if we didn't include a hat during the beginning of this festival weekend(:  This classic one by Hat Attack is now more than 50% off with a timeless color combination of grey and black.  Protect your beautiful face in style.


We hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Buy Day...whether you are at Coachella, here in San Francisco or elsewhere we hope your plans include enjoying a cocktail 9or cocktail) and some sunshine.


Friday Buy Day 1.1.15

I know shopping may seem like the last thing you want to do right now, but if you received any gifts you want to return or scored some gift cards you want to put to good use, now is one of the best times of year to take advantage of amazing sales all over the place.  We're bringing you our stylish favorites, all on sale.  Get your size before it's gone.

First up, this stylish sweater from Pam & Gela.  Business in the front, party in the back...this is the perfect cold weather pairing with leather skinnies and sneakers.  It drapes in just the right places to cover up the spare tire that has slowly been expanding since late November(:  Wear it with a lace bralette to avoid any unsightly bra straps, or layer it over a longer tee for a more casual look.  The stripes are perfect peeking out of an army green jacket and the dropped shoulder gives it a slouchy, relaxed feel.  Priced at $116 (from almost $200)and all sizes left...for now.


Next up, this darling dress (yes I said dress) by Free People.  I actually love stuff like this, because although it looks like a tunic on the 5'10 model I know it will be just the right length for someone (like me) who is half a foot shorter(:  For now, try it under a fur vest with over the knee boots and tights.  Come Spring, pack it on your next vacation as a chic cover-up, or try it with strappy gladiator sandals and a straw hat.  If you happen to be blessed with height, this would look great as a tunic over flared denim with wedges or with black skinnies and booties.  

The color, the heel height, the ankle strap, the price...fantastic.  It is difficult for me to wear 4" heels, and there is nothing less sexy than a girl awkwardly wobbling down the street in heels sky high.  These indigo suede heels by Joie are 3.5" inches and will add color and chic to any outfit.  Try them with an all black ensemble for an evening out, or pair them with a bright floral dress for a baby shower.  They would also look great with slouchy ripped jeans, a rocker tee and a blazer.  They are barely $100 from $300 and have most sizes left!  Get yours now and thank me later. 


As you all know, my passion for sneakers is almost matched by my passion for sweats.  I love them both.  A lot.  This pair by Current Elliot have a darkened camo print, side zip pockets (so they don't bulge at your hips) and a drawstring waist.  Wear them with...wait for it...high-tops and a leather jacket for a cozy but stylish Sunday movie night, or try them in the Summer with a slouchy tank, flip flops and a top knot for an uber cool "off duty" look.

I regularly buy dresses, even when I don't have an upcoming party or event (pretty much always on sale, thank you Friday Buy Day).  I do this because the few times I have not done this I end up spending hours and hours frantically shopping for a dress and then way too much money buying a dress I don't even like that much because I need the dress right away.  Save yourself the headache and consider doing the same for yourself.  This fantastic dress oozes cool.  With its champagne coloring and intricate beadwork it is feminine with a bohemian edge.  Pair it with cognac suede knee-high boots for a friend's birthday bash or slip on some strappy bronze heels for an evening wedding.  Priced under $245 get the look of Roberto Cavalli for 1/10 of the price. 

How cool is this necklace?  Made by Fiona Paxton with a bib of beads and feathers it is the perfect accessory to any outfit in need of one.  Try it with a black cashmere sweater, ripped jeans and moto boots now or layer it over a printed maxi dress in the Spring.  It is fresh, cool, timeless and a piece none of your friends will have but all of your friends will want.  Standing out for being stylish is always a good thing.


Lastly, this cozy poncho by Splendid.  With side-vents, a relaxed body and sophisticated color combination it is the perfect topper to a "jeans and tee" ensemble.  Priced under $150, it will become a go-to piece in your closet.  Throw it on over leather leggings for a chic travel outfit, or try it with skinny cords and sneakers for a park run.  It is classic, stylish and utterly wearable.

We hope you enjoyed our first Friday Buy Day of down, 51 more to go!  If you want these weekly sale picks delivered directly to your inbox feel free to add your email address below.
