11/25/11 Darling of the Day: Pippa Middleton Is At It Again, But With Fabulous Jackets & Coats!

The weather’s changing & it’s time to build on top of those layers with a nice coat.  I’ve recently come across more images of the famous Pippa Middleton, wearing a variety of coats & jackets as the crisp fall weather in England is changing to brisker winter days.  So I’ve put together yet another gallery in Darling of the Day (this one is much shorter though than the last one) dedicated to Pippa’s fabulous coat looks, showing how she mixes up her everyday pieces from stores like Zara, French Connection, Modalu, & Fay.  It’s true that even celebrities recycle their wardrobe & when you make a good investment in a coat, you’re certain to wear it more than once!

Where do you shop for your favorite fall / winter coats? Which of Pippa’s coats do you like the best?  Happy Styling!


Black Friday Sale Update: Storewide & Sitewide 50-70% Off Sales @New York & Company Through Sunday!

Here’s a Black Friday deal that lasts all weekend! @New York & Company, the store has an exclusive 50% off everything sale, while redline clearance items are reduced to 70% off!

This time last year, I was working for the retailer & saw so many bargains at the register & have kept my eye on the store’s sales.  You can’t get a deal any better than the geometric double drop earrings ($3.28).  They’re the perfect stocking stuffer for that style-savvy friend or sister.  Also, if you’re looking for a reliable pair of trousers, take a look at the 7th avenue city stretch luxe flare pant ($14.98), which are also available in tall & petite sizes.

There are also plenty of tops for the taking, including the chiffon ruffle-embellished sleeveless top ($10.48) & belted short-sleeved safari shirt ($13.48), which work perfectly with a pencil skirt, skinny jeans, & walking shorts for the warmer weather days next season!  As bah humbug as I am about New Year’s Eve, this is the store to check out dresses for the romantic party night! I just love the satin sheath dress ($39.97) in tudor red, which is also available in black in sizes 0-18.  Also, the mesh lace overlay dress ($64.97) is a stunning, yet flirty choice since it can be worn as a go-to cocktail dress for evening events or weekend weddings.

Remember: If you have a NY & Co credit card, you can earn rewards for additional discounts, including various coupons mailed & emailed to you throughout the year for more savings! Happy Styling!

Watch This Style / Silver Screen Style: Behind-The-Scenes of My Week with Marilyn Starring Michelle Williams!

Aside from the obviously fabulous sales this Black Friday weekend, one of the most anticipated movies of the year was released on Wednesday, My Week with Marilyn, starring Michelle Williams.  I won’t really be able to see the movie until Sunday, but I can’t wait!  I found this exciting clip on YouTube which includes some behind-the-scenes juice on the development of the story, Michelle’s interpretation of Monroe, & more behind the Oscar-buzzing film!  Take a look & share your thoughts! Happy Styling!

Black Friday Sale Update: EVERYTHING Is On Sale @Old Navy!

Even if you’re not shopping for yourself on this very busy Black Friday, you should head over to Old Navy b/c everything in the store is on sale today & tomorrow! However, I picked out a few of my favorites, including the wool-blend double-breasted coat ($44.50) in blue plaid.  It’s also available in cream, red, & black in sizes XS – XXL for women.  I’m not the blazer wearing kind of Style Darling, but I thought that the jersey-fleece blazer ($19.50) was an unconventional, yet fashionable take on comfy, casual clothing.  Also, everyone needs a little sparkle, like with the sequined henley tank ($18.00), or try some frill with the ruffle-front henley top ($8.00).  Both tops can be layered with other pieces & worn to be dressed up depending on the bottoms & accessories. Happy Styling!

Black Friday Sale Update: 50 – 60% Off Sale @Nine West!

I’ve bene waiting on the Nine West sale for Black Friday all week & here it is! There’s a limited selection on styles that are 60% off.  Also, on the website & in stores, there are some major 50% off sales too!

Part of the 60% off deal are some really fabulous booties that range in style from utilitarian to boho chic.  I’ve posted a bunch of animal-inspired items so far today & I couldn’t resist sharing the Fessup booties ($83.30) which are perfect for any red top & black skinny pants outfit.  The Esmiralda booties ($90.30) have a snake trim, which just add some luxury to the shoes which have been reduced in price from $129.00.  Also, Gracious bootie ($76.30) is an essential piece for this season with wide leg trousers, knit leggings, dark denim jeggings, & boyfriend jeans.

Be sure to check ou the Woodney pumps ($49.50) in nude patent, but they are also available in black patent.  The heel is classic & offers much more support as opposed to a skinny stiletto.  In addition, the Hideout sandals ($49.50) in red synthetic also come in nautral & gray.  They’d really make a splash with a leather mini dress, romper & tights outfit, or studded sheath dress with a belt.

Don’t forget that there’s a limited time offer on free shipping for any purchase, so if you decide not to keep your purchase, you can return them to your local Nine West store without having to spend any additional cash!  Happy Styling!

I always say that this is the season to wear dresses & I love the smocked waist dress ($34.99 – $39.99) in deep ocean, as well as the houndstooth faux wrap dress ($64.99 – $89.99).  You can get a lot of use out of both dresses & wear them with tights, boots, slingbacks, or peep toes.  Classic cuts like these also call for some fabulous earrings, which you can find here by Jessica London!

A special pop of color is perfect for a cropped shrug ($19.99 – $24.99) for your belted skirts, blouses, & casual day looks with dark denim jeans.  Also, don’t forget about the right outerwear while the seasons are in transition.  There’s nothing more elegant than a trench coat ($99.99 – $119.99) that can help cinch in your waist while trying to manage in the rain! Happy Styling!

There are tons of great finds that you can get with this sale, including the chevron stripe 2fer dress ($26.99) with sn elastic belt that you can use for other outfits too!  I love this dress b/c it makes me think of Missoni’s famous stripe designs.

Also, a romper can go a long way, whether you’re primping for a night out, or to wear with a blazer & tights, like the cold shoulder romper with belt ($28.99).

This time of year, you can never have enough leggings, so the ankle-length cotton legging ($8.99) is a super bargain for any long sweaters, flyaway cardigans, or plaid button downs that you’re sporting on a daily basis!  I’m obsessed with leggings at the moment (ugh, took me long enough!), as seen in my recent NYC Street Style post, It’s a Leggings World & We Just Live In It! Happy Styling!

Black Friday Sale Update: 50% Off Selected Styles & Get $10 Off $50 @Payless!

It’s Black Friday, so you know I have to post about the mega sale right now @Payless!  There’s a lot, so you might wanna jot this down!

There’s a special coupon code (62507) to get $10 off your $50 purchase through 11/27, but also there’s 50% off selected styles of boots, all slippers, cold weather accessories & more!  Not to mention that if you scour the internet like me, you can find a 20% off coupon code (58558) which is good until 12/5! Do the math yourself to figure out which is the best code for your purchase.

I used the latter since I am in super crazy budget mode while preparing for my return to Italy in January, but I did manage to scoop up the Riley tall slouch boot ($19.99) in black since I’m preparing to wear a lot of leggings & long sweaters on my trip.  Using the 20% off code for my online order & opting to have them shipped to a local Payless store, I paid under $17!

In addition, I’ve had my eye on the houndstooth scarf ($6.49) in raisin, which has been marked down from $12.99.  Lastly, I love walking around the house in what I call “sloots,” my slipper boots.  A few years ago I bought gray cableknit ones, but now the store has the fair isle bootie slipper ($11.49) on sale, also available in black!
