Want to get a good deal today, but aren't ready to dig through that insanely long list of emails to find the best sales?  Here is my quick roundup of the online sales that are worth checking out.

Loft code:  TODAYONLY

This drop waist pink dress reminds me off these  and is already on sale for $59 so with the cyber Monday deal, it's just $30!

Everything at Ann Taylor is 40% off

Ann Taylor Code: MONDAY

They have some great colors of cashmere, that are a steal at 40% off.  I think this basic v-neck would make a great gift.  Ann Taylor also has great work basics and some fun sparkly items for holiday parties.


30% off orders over $100 and extra 50% off sale (no code needed)

C. Wonder is great stop for colorful gifts and fun costume jewels.   I think these initial bracelets are perfect gifts for gal pals  -- the monagram makes it feel extra special.

One of my favorite picks are these parkas from Gap.  I love the colors and it has a great fleece lining.  (Fur is removable, too)

Kate Spade

Kate Spade is having an awesome "secret" sale with prices up to 75% off.   I'm tempted to pick up this "Eat Cake for Breakfast" tote I fell in love with earlier this year.  They also have some great wallet and jewelry deals.

Madewell code: TREAT

It's not the biggest discount, but 25% is worth it for special/investment pieces like boots.  I've got a pair of riding boots I bought at Madewell 5 years ago, and they're still going strong.  I think these little booties might also need to make it into my closet.

Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Somehow Thanksgiving has snuck up on on us once again. So, I figured I'd pause for a little holiday inspiration.

This setting might be completely un-realistic, but how awesome would it be to eat Thanksgiving dinner in this perfect outdoor setting?

If you're planning an indoor dinner (duh), I love this simple white table setting from Martha Stewart.

On the other hand,  I'm always inspired by Eddie Ross' table-scapes.   This Thanksgiving table he did for Lonny a few years back is outstanding.  I love the mix of patterns,  the rich gold accessories, and the contrast of the orange flowers and blue glasses.

If Eddie's eclectic traditional look isn't your vibe, you can always stick to basic black and whites.

And, if all else fails,  pull out the gilded spraypaint and gild some pumpkins and dried corn.



How to Wear: Green Pants

Bright denim is everywhere, but a lot of people struggle with what to pair with statement pants.   I recently picked up a pair of green corduroy, so I figured I'd share some ideas.

Look #1: A day of shopping

A white blouse is a no-brainer pairing with bright colored pants.  Kelly green looks great with brown tones and I think leopard is a fun twist.   Pull it in with a scarf or pair of shoes like the look above.   Throw on a worn in leather jacket, and you're ready for a Saturday of shopping with some friends.

Look #1 Pieces:

Blouse: Equipment white silk sleeveless blouse ($188, Shopbop)

Necklace: Belle Noel side wishbone gold necklace ( $45, Shopbop)

Shoes: Leopard sidewalk skimmer flats ($135, Madewell)

Pants: J BRAND green corduroy skinny jeans ($78, The Outnet)

Jacket: Brown leather double breasted bomber ($495, Madewell)

Look #2: Comfy brunch

Second to a white blouse, I think chambray is the easiest top to wear with bright jeans (or in this case cords).  Paired with some low-heeled boots and a fun nautical scarf that almost matches, you're good to go.

Look #2 Pieces:

Pants: MEK Emerald Denim 5-Pocket ($89, Last Call)

Shirt: Light washed two pocket denim shirt ($60, Madewell)

Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita brown leather boots  ($129, Shoes.com)

Bag: Clare Vivier navy blue leather cross body satchel ($210, Bodie on Fou)

Scarf: Navy and green nautical sailboat scarf ($10, ModCloth)

Look #3: A night out

Don't think that you can't wear green pants for a night out?  You can!  This coated pair works great with a sleek black tuxedo blazer and whimsical blouse.  By letting the jeans be the only color in your outfit, the look becomes more evening appropriate.  The casual striped clutch keeps it from being too serious.

Look #3 Pieces:

Blazer: AllSaints black tuxedo blazer ($295, AllSaints)

Earrings: Gorjana rose gold hoop earrings ($64, Zappos)

Clutch: Clare Vivier black and white striped leather clutch ($173, Shopbop)

Pants: Current/Elliott Coated low-rise stretch-denim skinny jeans ($80, The Outnet)

Blouse: Moschino polka-dot silk-crepe tie neck blouse ($795, Net-a-Porter)

Shoes: Sam Edelman black suede pointed pump ($100, Cusp)


Instant Style: Navy Sofa + Eclectic Glamour

Remember the "instant" room from last week?  Well if  you got bored of that more classic look, check out how quickly you could mix it up by just replacing the rug and accessories.

The pieces:

Brass arch mirrors (on sale for $69 at World Market) - I love two of these mirrors paired together over the sofa or a console table

Blue and white cheetah lumbar pillow ($165 at Society Social)

Antique brass pharmacy lamp ($190 at Lamps Plus)

Navy pink and white batik pillow ($185 at Amber Interiors) - With the hot pink accent pillow is the perfect mix of global and modern glamour.

Navy performance velvet sofa ($1,099 at West Elm)

Tufted yellow linen chair ($1,698 at Anthropologie)

Multi-color flat woven turkish rug ($800 at Furbish)

Natural stump side table ($159 at West Elm)



Style Inspiration from Mandy Moore?

It may be that I have never gotten over the arm bands and midriffs in Candy, but I have have been inspired by Mandy Moore's recent fashion sense.  She seems to have gone from a generic Hollywood star to a fashion week A-lister overnight. 

Mandy has especially been a hit in Lela Rose.  Check out this black and yellow look from Lela Rose's Spring 13 show accessorized with the perfectly worn in  leather jacket.

 I also loved this vanilla Lela Rose dress that Mandy wore to the CFDA awards.  Perfectly accessorized with bright pink lips and a simple ponytail.

And finally, this poppy-red Lela Rose dress that Mandy wore to her Spring 2012 show looks like it's a dress that would work in any woman's closet for work, drinks and beyond.

Back to Spring 13 fashion week, you know how I feel about suits and I think this khaki look + pink pumps was a perfectly modern interpretation.

And,  here Mandy is  in blue and black with another killer leather jacket.

What do you think? Enough evidence to forget about "Candy"?
