Friday Buy Day 12.4.15

We took last week off for the Thanksgiving Holiday but are back at it this week...our favorite finds, always in style, always on sale.




Tis the Season for sparkles and fur, but it is sometimes hard for me to buy "Holiday" clothing because I know I will only wear it once, maybe twice and then I will tire of it.  I love a "Holiday" dress that can be worn for your festive fete now and your Spring Fling later.  This sueded, intricately embroidered dress by Parker checks both those boxes.  Pair it with snakeskin booties and the rich jewel tones and sueded fabrication make it a cool bohemian option for a Winter event.  Or, try it with a neutral platform in the Spring for a stylish nod to the Seventies trend.

Next up, two of my favorite things (leopard and gladiators) just had a baby...and I couldn't be more excited!!!!  The bows are just icing on the cake.  Wear them with leather skinnies and a cream cashmere sweater, or try them with ripped "girlfriend" denim and a navy striped top.  I love them with a flippy skirt and a tweed sweatshirt, or pair them with a shift dress for a chic work ensemble.  Love everything about them...price included.  And J. Crew is offering 30% off today with code GIVEMORE.  Give yourself more shoe options every morning, and buy these 



Everyone by now is aware of my (strong) affinity for Frame Denim, and this pair is no exception.  I love the slouchy fit, the perfectly distressed wash and the way that this type of denim makes anything "prim and proper" feel a little less so. I love these jeans with a ribbed henley and supergas.  And I really love this jeans with a slinky tank and heels. Try them with the J.Crew leopard gladiators above and a black cashmere turtleneck for the perfect mix of refined and rugged. But them, wash them, roll them, wear them. 


And how about these adorable black moto rain boots? Just because it's raining doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your personal style...and while there are plenty of rain boot options out there, many lean heavily towards the preppy dresser. If that isn't you, then these boots will be a welcome addition to your shoe closet...not to mention they would be a perfect gift (for yourself or someone you love).



And then I spotted this Veda jacket that literally oozes cool: The perfect black lamb skin leather paired with an outrageously stylish shearling collar...doesn't get much better. This is one of those jackets that you buy this year and 3 years later will wear just as frequently. It is a fantastic way to add some edge to an ensemble of jeans and a tee and I love the idea of wearing this as a topper for a floral bohemian maxi dress. Priced at 40% off the original price, this jacket is sure to sell out...get your size before it's gone. 


This top by ATM is one of those tops that once in your line-up, you will wonder what you ever wore before it entered your rotation.  A creamy vanilla color, and french terry construction make it classic and wearable while the dropped shoulder and raglan cuffs and hem add edge and interest.  I love it styled as pictured with other creamy whites and neutrals, or throw it over a denim button up with your favorite slouchy beanie.  It adds a casual element to a tweed skirt and would look fantastic with leather skinnies and high-tops.   


 Lastly, these fringed heels by Joie.  Pairing the perfect neutral color with the perfect amount of funk allows them to be on-point without being trendy.  I love these with (pretty much everything) but these are showstoppers when worn with rolled "girlfriend" jeans and a leather blazer.  Or try them with a long-sleeve maxi dress for a a chic take on the Seventies trend.  The padded insole provides added comfort and they are on sale for under $200 with most sizes left.

We hope you enjoyed this week's top picks for stylish finds at sale prices.  And in other, totally unrelated news...I am OBSESSED with Starbucks new Holiday Spice Flat White drink: espresso with steamed milk that has been infused with cinnamon and cloves.  Obsessed.  Oh, and if you want Friday Buy Day delivered directly to your inbox you can scroll down and add your email address.  Okay, that's it..have a great weekend! 

Friday Buy Day 5.15.15

It's another Friday which means it's another Buy Day.  Time to  scoop up some great pieces on sale so let's get down to it:

This is the bohemian version of a shirtdress (at the bohemian price of $76).  A drop waist, petite floral print and a flounce hem are the makings of a casually cool and feminine frock.  It would look just as good with gladiator sandals and a panama hat as it would with a denim jacket, wedges and a top knot for a late afternoon/evening event.  It's fresh, modern and sexy without being revealing.

Love this straw tote.  The fringe is spot-on trend without feeling trendy.  The natural raffia and black colors are a classic combination and will always be in style.  Add dark sunglasses, skinny jeans and espadrilles and this "beach bag" is a chic carry on.  Oh the places you'll go...

Everyone knows Shannon and I love a good romper.  Long sleeve, short sleeve, pants or shorts...we like them all!  We found this brand a little while ago and they make really affordable, really stylish pieces with a bohemian vibe.  This crochet romper is only $72 and is darling as a beach cover-up, or we love the idea of pairing it with two other Friday Buy Day items: the black bralette(from Urban Outfitters) and the black Matiko gladiators we featured two weeks ago.  Effortless and super stylish.

These Joie Kidmore sneakers are fantastic.  We found them for $154 (from $220), even though they are still full price at all other retail outlets we checked!  They have all sizes in stock except 9, for now....but I'm sure not for long.

These sneakers are sporty, stylish and the perfect color.  Can't think of another style of shoe that offers the elegance of a smoking slipper while offering the comfort of a sneaker.  These will become your go-to shoe with a cashmere sweater and jeans, as well as with a linen tee and cut-offs.  Get your size before it's sold out! 


We are definitely aware that this is a "trend" but we love it....and for $14.50, everyone is welcome to participate.  These mismatched earrings would be the perfect complement to that more conservative wedding dress ensemble, or a welcome addition to an all black outfit (or all white, or all denim).   With mismatched earrings, a petite choice is the best choice.  Nothing wrong with making your stylish statement subtly...

 It is actually really hard to find the perfectly cropped denim jacket.  Longer ones can look boxy and masculine.  Worse than a manly denim jacket is picking one that is TOO cropped.  No offense...but if your daughter can barely get away with her Justice ensemble, you certainly can't get away with it.  

This one from Paige is under $120 and has all sizes left.  This is a mandatory Spring/Summer staple to layer over your maxi dress or top off embroidered shorts.  With a mid-wash and classic styling, this jacket will last you for years to come.
