It’s finally feeling like spring! Welcome the warm weather with some fresh, fabulous scents courtesy of Marc Jacobs, Juicy, Elizabeth Arden, Jimmy Choo, etc.
Sales! It’s that time of year again when retailers gear up for holiday shopping. What’s different about this year is that retailers are having black friday deals early to entice customers to shop all month long, and not just Black Friday–or Black Thursday as it should be called from now on. Many department stores like Target, Walmart, Macy’s and Kohl’s will open up between 6-8pm. So you can walk off that food coma in the department store aisles. If you’re feeling really ambitious, you should head out to Old Navy; they open at 9am on Thanksgiving day!
However, if you’re like me and don’t want to bother with all of the crowds but still want all of your favorite designer clothes, shoes, and accessories on sale (yes I said on sale) then you need to check out Nordstrom’s Women and children’s half yearly sale! Designers like Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Vince Camuto, Tory Burch, Trina Turk, and Burberry have select items up to 40% off. If shoes, and and handbags are your thing, then this is the sale for you! Sam Edelman, Dolce Vita, Coach, Diane von Furstenburg, and everyone’s favorite Frye boots are some of the featured designer shoe and handbags with discounts.
My favorite part of the sale? The jewelry of course! I snagged this gold letterpress Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace, and House of Harlow sunburst necklace–both 50% off regular price! The half yearly sale is constantly changing so be sure to check back to see what else has been added!
It was announced several days ago that Marc Jacobs would be leaving the Louis Vuitton brand to spend more time focusing on his own label. This came as a shock to much of the fashion world, since he has been with Louis Vuitton for the past 16 years. However, many in the fashion industry, as well as myself and I’m sure you all, are really excited to see what kinds of ideas and creative designs he has up his sleeve for his own brand.

About a month ago Marc Jacobs released his first makeup line at Sephora. He released 122 different products from makeup brushes to foundation to eyeliner. A really interesting and unique feature about his line is that it is not only marketed to females, but males as well. Since its release date, the line has been selling extraordinarily fast and has great reviews. Marc Jacobs is even opening a Marc Jacobs Beauty store in New York City. I actually received a free sample of Marc Jacobs Beauty-Highliner Gel Crayon in Black and it is by far the best eyeliner I have ever used. You should definitely give his new beauty line a try. It is, however, a bit pricey… but I love splurging on great quality beauty products and I’m sure you do too!
