Ah, my favorite day of the year is upon us when you can basically walk out of your favorite stores with somewhere around 50% off of everything. And the sales are already starting! The places I usually hit on Black Friday are Ann Taylor, Loft, Express, and then a stop by Victoria’s Secret online store, as they generally have good deals on top of free shipping. And let’s be honest, their shipping costs are generally ridiculous. I usually avoid departments stores because they are just too big on such a crowded shopping day to try and get through.
I think Black Friday is a great time to not only get gifts, but pick up a few new things for holiday parties and such, and maybe purchase the more expensive items that you don’t want to shell out for at full price.
I’m hoping to get out to the stores with my MIL on Friday for a bit, but if not, I will definitely be taking advantage of some online shopping deals. Loft and Ann Taylor are already offering 40% off and Express is at 50% off. I’m hoping Ann Taylor and Loft go up to 50% on Friday!
Here are some things I have my eye on!
Tapestry Jacquard Shorts – I definitely need to get my hands on these to wear with tights, so cute!
Polka Dot Puffer Vest
Shimmery Boatneck Sweater
Leather Sleeve Jacket
Maxi Dress – I love this dress, considering for New Year’s in Navy or Emerald
Knife Pleat Party dress
Ruched Sweater Dress
Romper – I love a Romper for winter with tights and a sweater or blazer
Feather Print Blouse
Reversible Polka Dot Sweater
Cowl Neck Asymmetrical Tunic
Colorblock Ruched Sweater Dress
Faux Fur Collar Sweater Jacket
Polka Dot Sweater Dress
Velvet Tuxedo Jacket
Faux Fur Vest
Happy Shopping! What’s on your Black Friday list?

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and Mother’s Day! Sorry for my long absence, was feeling like I just needed a little break this last week coming off my travel. And this week I’m packing up again to head to Vegas for the weekend – lots of flying this month!
The wedding I went to in New Mexico was beautiful and we danced all night! I wore what is probably my favorite dress ever, I loved the bright color.
Here I am with my best friend, April, her little sister was the bride. We’ve been friends for 21 years now!
Dress – Victoria’s Secret
And here we are goofing off with our good friend from high school, Dustin. A beautiful New Mexico night!
This past Saturday night we headed to my friend Sam’s housewarming party and I took advantage of the above average temps to wear this black and white striped dress I picked up recently. I love that I will also be able to wear it with tights in the Fall too. I took a size 6 in this one. It has been going in and out of stock so if you want to give it a try don’t hesitate!

Hi there, hope you all had a great weekend! Sorry for my unannounced blogging break, my mom came into town for a visit on Thursday and we ended up keeping very busy.
My mom brought the sun up from Southern Cali and we had some beautiful weather here for the weekend which was nice. Friday we spent the day putting the final touches on the redecoration of our condo bedrooms and now that we are finally done I will take some pictures to share this week. I am so excited to be done and enjoy our finished spaces, thanks Mom!
Friday night we headed out for “bacon happy hour” at a restaurant close by, Local 360 – it was amazing! In keeping with the sunshine, I brought out my mustard shirt and paired with a pair of pants I picked up with a coupon from Victoria’s Secret recently. I love the neutral leopard print on these pants, subtle but fun, and think they will be getting a lot of use this spring.
Jeans – Victoria’s Secret (20% off now, mine are a size 4), Top – Loft (similar), Shoes – Shutz, Bag – Michael Kors (similar)
Sunday we headed out to the wineries with my Cousin Lisa for a fun day of tasting. Here’s the fam! Aren’t my mom’s polka dot jeans cute?!

Happy New Year to you all! Hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve celebration, whatever it is that you did.
Today is our last day in New York, we head home tomorrow, and while sad to leave, I am ready to get back home to my kitties. It is also my husband’s 31st birthday, so a big Happy Birthday to him! We are headed out to dinner tonight to celebrate.
For New Year’s Eve the big Italian family and I headed to an event place here on Long Island for a fun night of dinner and dancing.
I wore a blue lace dress I got on sale and loved it! I was concerned about what bra I would wear with the sheer back, but ended up just pairing with a navy bra that matched the color of the dress so that worked out well. I also was determined to track down a pair of cute low heeled shoes because I get cranky when my feet hurt, and was very happy I found this black patent pair at DSW.
I think I’m forgoing resolutions this year, how about you?

Hope your 2013 is off to a fabulous start!

Yay! I finally found a black and white striped tank that I love! And even better, I found it at Target for $12.99 – love when that happens. You would think this would be easy to find, but I swear I have been looking for months! I will definitely be copying Erin’s outfit here once fall comes. (although I will still probably wish I had her exact blouse!)
Anyways, Michael and I actually have a mid week date planned for tonight, I’m very excited so I wanted to wear something that would look cute and be comfy for a night at the movies. I only have one other post with these pants, but they have actually gotten a lot of use as my pants for long plane rides. They are very comfy thanks to some stretch, so I slipped these on along with my new black and white striped shirt and just topped with this black Kmart blazer that is also in my recent Bargain picks post.
Just realized I wore a striped shirt Friday, Monday, and today… guess I have a thing for stripes!
I think we are going to see Horrible Bosses tonight – any reviews?
