Everyone’s Favorite Four Letter Word

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!

Leather Everything, Please

So it’s no secret that leather is HUGE this season (go check out my post from a few weeks ago, “Leather Weather”).  It’s classic, comfortable, and goes with everything, BUT it can also expensive. And if you’re like me, and a broke college student, then  buying leather apparel isn’t exactly ideal. I mean there’s rent, books, gas, and bar money, so let’s face it, not many of us can afford that soft italian leather jacket we’ve secretly been eyeing.  In my opinion, it’s all about the details and how you accessorize!  Try finding a jacket, like my BDG camo jacket (Urban Outfitters), that has subtle leather details on the zippers, pockets, and shoulder.   Also, leather jewelry like my BP  black, studded wrap bracelet from Nordstrom is great accessory if you’re looking to add a little edge.  And finally, if you can find some money in your budget, consider splurging on a leather purse.  My black and white Kate Spade is my go-to-bag. It’s classic and is perfect for any season!

The bold brow is back and very popular on the runways this season. Models for Marc Jacobs, Burberry Prorsum, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Chloe all sported this trend in their Spring 2013 shows. This trend is definitely do-able, you should try coloring your brows in one day. Who knows, you may absolutely love it!
