Cyber Monday Sale Roundup for Women

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 // Ann Taylor 

Everything at Loft is 50% off

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.


GAP // Banana Republic // OldNavy // Piperlime 

Everything is 30% off (20% at Piperlime)


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.


25% off everything 

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. 


30% off everything


Pick up a last minute outfit for your holiday parties!

  J.Crew // J.Crew Factory 

Old standby J.Crew is offering 25% off and free shipping.  Plus, the oline factory (outlet) store is 50% off + free shipping.

J.Crew Factory Code: YOURGIFT

This yellow wool peacot (with the perfect gold buttons) is just $99 -- it's a fun twist on a classic that you'll wear for years :)

I hope you're able to take advantage of some of these deals!  HAPPY SHOPPING!!

Holiday Style-Edition: Custom Christmas Cards from Minted

Have you bought your Christmas cards yet?

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is the cards.  For many people, Christmas is one of the only times a year where they step away from their computers and actually HAND WRITE  letters and cards to their family and friends and to me, there's nothing better than getting a beautiful note in the mail!

Minted is one of my favorite sources for custom cards and paper goods.   They have a large community of designers that contribute from around the globe which I think tends to make their assortment of card options a little bit nicer than other photo-centric sites that offer custom cards.   They also print on beautiful thick matte paper that is much higher quality than what you can get from many places.

So,  if you haven't bought your cards yet, check them out! 

I love these colorful (kind of Kate Spade-esque) stripes:

They also give you tons of flexibility to customize the inside, back of cards and envelopes.


Plus,  custom cards don't have to include photos. They have some lovely options that you can customize with just your name  and personal note.

 Now, time to get stamps.... 


Wearing Red

The holidays are coming up and clearly I'm using it as an excuse to daydream about fancy cocktail attire. Although red is everywhere during the holiday season, it seems rare to see "real" women rock the color for evening look. (I'm not counting the now standard "ugly xmas sweater" look here)

Anyways, I saw this photo of Jessica Biel on NY Mag where she is re-staging a glamorous old Revlon ad.

And, It reminded me that she has worn some beautiful RED looks in the past.
I think these two are both stunning:



It's funny.. . when I searched for these red carpet looks, they were both on blogs questioning her style... I guess everyone has their opinions..
