the biggest j.crew sale ever — seriously!

I am in the midst of creating all of my annual holiday gift guides and was just browsing J.Crew and stumbled upon the biggest sale they’ve ever done! 40% off basically everything. FORTY PERCENT. What?! I seriously re-read the fine print like ten times over thinking my jet lag was getting the best of me. Nope, this is real people. Christmas came early! It’s the first time J.Crew has ever done 40%… I’ve seen 35% before (I think it was Black Friday or Cyber Monday a few years ago… I remember snagging a pair of glittery pumps!), but never 40%. And unfortunately for our wallets, their holiday collection is so, so good. Eeks, it’s going to be hard not to do some major damage! I feel like those red siren lights are going off in my head right now…

Lace Dress + Suede Moto

One of my favorite ways to put my spin on an outfit is with a little juxtaposition. I love pairing feminine dresses with borrowed-from-the-boys jackets and accessories. An androgynous shirtdress with a pair of bow-tied pumps. A girly dress with sporty sneakers. A sexy dress with something a bit heavier and covered up. You get the idea… It’s all about the unexpected mix!

I last wore this little lace dress with a white vest for a girls night in NYC and recently wore it again with one of my favorite suede moto jackets. I think the boxy suede jacket offsets the little lace dress just enough to make it appropriate enough to wear during the day, as well as date night or an evening out with the girls!

Festive Holiday Accessories

When it comes to holiday parties, festive accessories are my favorite way to make outfits a bit more cheery! Statement shoes, bow-tied bags, and glitzy jewels are a surefire way to make a statement. Can you believe Thanksgiving is just two weeks away? And after that, it’s a full five weeks of fancy fetes and swanky soirées until New Years Day! The holiday season definitely snuck up on me this year, but I’m excited for all that’s to come over the next month or two. So let’s chat about what we’re going to wear, shall we?

Beauty Gifts to Give & Get

I recently picked up a pack of Farmacy Face Masks and fell in love with one of the masks in the pack… The Deep Moisture Hydrating Coconut Gel Mask. I was searching high and low for where I could find the mask sold individually and I finally found them on QVC.com of all places! I got to poking around on the site and was so impressed with the selection of beauty products… TatchaFarmacyJulepGHDL’OccitaneDrybar, and more. So many ideas for holiday gifting!
