2013 Black Friday Style: No-Sweat Sweater Shopping!


In my day-and-a-half blog-athon quest, my first post is featuring the must-have item of the season- a sweater! Of course, you can wear something really basic & dress it up with fabulous accessories, but sweaters are one of those items that you just need to have each season. I’ve been hearing so much about all of the big Black Friday deals, so I’m starting off with these four sweaters that have caught my attention on the web!

Dress Barn - V-Neck Sweater $19.99, The Limited - Heart Sweater $59.95, Old Navy - Mock Turtleneck Sweater $30.00, & New York & Company - Striped Sweater $25.00.

Here are the details on each sweater: roz & ALI cashmiracle v-neck sweater ($19.99) in fuchsia @Dress Barn, Intarsia heart sweater ($59.95– 50% off with code THANKS) in blue @The Limited, mock turtleneck sweater ($30.00) in black combo @Old Navy, & Waverly v-neck striped sweater ($25.00) in cherry blossom @New York & Company.

Sweaters are the perfect separate to mix & match with basics for any occasion, like skinny jeans, trouser pants, a pencil skirt, or leggings (if it’s a tunic sweater, that is). Also, try accessorizing with knee boots, a crossbody bag, & a long chain link necklace for a trendy casual look. What kind of sweaters do you shop for? Which stores do you think have the best holiday sales on sweaters this weekend?

Black Friday Sale Update: J. Crew’s All-American Styles Are On Sale 25% Off Storewide& Sitewide!


Not to get political, but now that the Obama family is staying in the White House, we can be sure to see more of the First Lady’s all-American style making headlines in the fashion industry.  We know that one of her favorite places to shop for her & the family is J.Crew, which is celebrating the holiday weekend & joining the Black Friday rush with a 25% off storewide & sitewide sale when using code COLOR25.  This code even works on already reduced sale items, which has inspired me to put together these colorful looks, perfect for now, & especially if you’re heading away on a tropical vacation with that special someone to be the brisk breezes of winter approaching.

This includes pieces that are sure to make bold prints & classic patterns stand out, especially when you consider contrasting textures like leather, dark denim, & suede for a variety of modern & clean ensembles to go about the season.  Starting off, I’ve selected the ruffle string top ($29.99) in sutton purple to match with the mini ruffle hipster ($29.99) in the same hue, however both are available in a many other shades that you can mix & match with other swimwear separates. To keep comfy while out & about somewhere sunny, I’ve added the perfect-fit long-sleeve v-neck tee ($19.99) in dublin green with the 3″ chino shorts ($19.99) in casablance blue.  To complete your breezy look, the Lila patent platform wedges ($29.99) in neon peach are the perfect neutral to switch around with a romper, maxi dress, or cropped pants.  If you’re looking for more a neutral wedge to start off next summer with, these are also available in toffee & black.

I loved all the hues of the classic medium bangle ($17.50) in ivory, neon azalea, & fresh plum, which make for a perfect gift for your girl friends if you want to find something special & share your passion for fashion. Keep with the colorblocking trend & bust those turtleneck myths by choosing the tissue turtleneck tee ($19.99) in gallery green, matched with the high-waisted corduroy pencil skirt ($29.99) in neon fuchsia. For a more masculine look in with this must-have skirt, I recommend swapping out the turtleneck for the ink dip pop over ($34.99) in festival blue & adding the patent leather square-buckle belt ($29.50) in pale gold.

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.

The split neck tuxedo blouse ($54.90) & Cassidy slim tuxedo pants ($69.90) will ring up 50% less at checkout, making for a chic interpretation of menswear for the modern woman, with that pajama trend twist.

Also, I’ve added the teardrop caviar earrings ($24.90) & crystal dome ring ($26.90) for a metallic elegance, but haven’t forgotten that every party girl needs a bag, which is why I selected the envelope clutch ($49.90) in pink. I’m always looking at shoes on sale & was so happy to find the already reduced in price elastic strap pumps ($24.99), which are ideal for any LBD, watercolor sheath, or skinny jeans & sequin top.
