Day before Thanksgiving

You know the sales have already started.
NY& Company is having a half off everything sale. I love this. I wish more stores would slash the prices of their entire inventory semi-annually. Last spring I walked out with quite a few awesome finds, and hopefully I'll be able to control myself this time around (since I've used up my month's budget already). However, these are a few things I might be hinting at for Christmas gifts. (are you reading this family?)

Flyaway Cardigan, $25
Wool Camel Toggle Coat, $60
Sheer Ruffled Top, $18.50
Leopard Print Belt, $10
Gold Sequined Skirt, $25
Plaid Button Down Shirt, $19
Faux Fur Cowl, $18.50

You can also kick off your shopping weekend with this freebie; three MP3 credits from Amazon. You could buy some Christmas music, to get into the spirit, but I used mine to get some songs that were played in Monday's episode of Chuck...

Today I tried to channel J. Crew again, belting my velvet blazer over a ruffled top.

  1. This outfit is PERFECT!! I aim to look something similar to this nearly every week at work. I love the ruffles under the velvet. It is like a texture gold mine!

  2. Love the look, especially the shoes!

  3. dyinggg for something sequin for the holidays

  4. I have a full basket over at NY&CO too - trying very hard to not hit "submit," but 50% off is tempting! I love that sequin skirt, and I would really love to see what you could do with it.

    I really like today's outfit, especially the blazer.

  5. You channel perfectly!! I love that Velvet blazer with the little belt. Lurve!

    Now about that sequined skirt...uh $25!!! HOLY MOLY!!

    I'm going to dive back into some more snacks in prep for tomorrow...Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


  6. Wow, half price? That's awesome!

    You look fab! The ruffles, twisted belt and the skirt with all the lines that would play tricks with our eyes : )

    Cycling in the clouds,

  7. Ooh, I love the velvet and the ruffles! And I love NY+Co's sales, I've gotten stuff for so ridiculously cheap there.

  8. You look stunning and that sequin skirt is amazing :)


  9. 'kay- so can I hire you to be my stylist : ) ? Love this. Is that blazer new at uo?

    I'm trying to find something that transitions from office to party well- and how can you go wrong in velvet?

  10. You did a good job of channeling J.Crew. And thanks for the amazon credits heads up!

  11. Feels like J. Crew to me and such a great fall outfit!

  13. CUTE BLOG DEAR!!! Will you check out mine? i'd love to have you as a follower and know your opinion, hope to hear from you soon!!

  14. May your stuffing be tasty
    May your turkey plump,
    May your potatoes and gravy
    Have never a lump.
    May your yams be delicious
    And your pies take the prize,
    And may your Thanksgiving dinner
    Stay off your thighs!

  26. I love that camel coat you posted. And $60 is a great price for wool. Prices on "stuff" always seem cheaper in the U.S. No wonder there are so many chic dressers like yourself :) (Hope you do get it for Christmas so I can drool over it in your pics.)
