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.

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!

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.

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 : )

'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?

Krystal said...

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

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!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

I LOVE the belt over the velvet blazer. I have one that's a little large for me, and I've always wanted to try it, but never thought it would look right... You always seem to try stuff that I want to, and prove that it can be done and look awesome! :)

Pop Champagne said...

I'm a huge fan of ruffles so I love this pic! have a great black friday shopping!

Camille said...

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.)
