Black Friday Sale Update: Forever 21’s Extra 50% Off Super Sale!


The evening hours of the Black Friday sales are upon us & some are ending today, but if you’re shopping @Forever 21, the extra 50% off sale is going on until Sunday, when you use code EXTRA50 at checkout! This is always the first store I check up on every year for Black Friday & it never fails me when I’m looking for a cute cardigan, dazzling jewelry, or a new blouse for work.

I couldn’t just pick a few pieces this time around b/c there was just so much to choose from, so I made a collage using my beginner PhotoShop skills.  Take a look at the houndstooth print racerback tank ($12.56) & the stretch plaid denim skinnies ($19.59) which call on the mixed-print trend, as seen on the runways of this year’s New York Fashion week.  For another mix of flavors & fashion, I added the cable knit panel sweater ($15.64) with the woven mesh skirt ($12.48). My favorite piece of this whole selection is the retro stripe dress with belt ($21.25), which is also available in a camel / plum color scheme.

I tried the essential cable knit sweater dress ($21.96) in the store back in the beginning of the season & although it didn’t quite sit on me right, I love the chic look of the cream hue in such a cozy fall-friendly frock.  My favorite outfit combination, which is just soooo my style, is the flounced layered top ($18.01) with the striped mini skirt ($15.64), which is perfect for a holiday party or date night with your beau.

In all of this, I can’t forget the accessories, which include the lace-up wedge booties ($25.91) in teal, tiger stripe bangle set ($5.99), zebra print platform pump ($12.99), rhinestone flower studs ($1.99), & rhinestone platform heels ($17.99) in taupe.

I already added some of these items & a few others to my shopping bag to make my own splurge-worthy Black Friday purchase.  What’s in your shopping bag? Happy Styling!

Black Friday Sale Update: Nine West’s 50% Off Select Boots & Booties, & Select Pumps $49.99!


Have you got the holiday blues? Has the holiday spirit just not hit you yet? Well, I have a solution, by sharing the latest Black Friday sale from Nine West. Select boots & booties are currently 50% off, & select pumps are reduced to $49.99! I love a Nine West shoe… there’s something about the combination of quality, affordability, & style that makes me swoon b/c this is one of my favorite name brands to follow in footwear.

If that doesn’t excite you, then head to a doctor (a cute one)! Anyway, I want to share all of the styles, but simply don’t have the time to talk about each & every one, so I picked my four favorite styles to share for a variety of occasions during the season.

Play with the neutral shoe trend with the Sheryl pumps ($49.99) a nude / black patent combo. These are fun to mix with cocktail dresses, & can work well with suit separates for the office.  They’re available in four other colors to help round out your wardrobe.  Get your glam on & all of your Wizard of Oz dreams to come true with the Love Fury pumps ($49.99) in red, which also come in dark silver & black- ideal for making your Christmas wish more festive.

I’m a big fan of flat boots for those days when you wanna give your arches a break, but you still want to look fashion forward, which makes the Bogie bootes ($59.50) in bronze metallic perfect for wearing under jeans with a cable knit sweater or layering with a button down.  For something a little more edgy, these are also sold in silver metallic, calling on your 80s-inspired duds! Because anything animal print sends me into a fashion fury, I had to include the Haywire booties ($69.50) which will hug your foot in all the right ways & call on lots of attention when you walk into a room!

Black Friday Sale Update: 30-50% Off Shoes, Sandals, Boots, & Handbags @ALDO!


I’ve been searching plenty of websites for the best outfits at the most affordable prices, but I haven’t forgotten about my love for footwear.  Once I checked out what was going on @ALDO shoes, I knew I had to share the latest markdowns for the Black Friday sale. There’s always a good reason to buy shoes on sale, including some sensible flats for the office, sexy pumps for a date night, & chic boots for a casual day of shopping with the girls.

The Patrin flats ($17.49) in cognac are the perfect way to finish off a belted sweater dress look with tights & they’re also sold in blue & fuchsia. Also, for a glitter glitz & glam, I love the Nottingham flats ($9.99) in blue, which will compliment any leather skirt & embellished blouse look.  For a more utilitarian look, I recommend the Mandina boot ($38.49) with skinny jeans & a plaid button-down. The sleek Sperow heels ($32.49) are ideal for sporting the cap toe trend with the contrasting texture, but they’ll also make any LBD look all the more fierce, especially when worn with textured tights.

Next is the Jonquiere heels ($32.49) with a classic platform for elongating the legline. Match these with a polka dot dress or a sleek red number & you’ll really be making an entrance.  The Korsen bootie ($39.99) plays with colorblocking, adding an unexpected twist with the regal cobalt & bright turquoise.  The feminine Laesser flats ($14.99) are a gorgeous pairing with a slipdress & boyfriend blazer for an effortless night out on the town.

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.

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!
