Yes, I started Black Friday shopping... and it's not even FRIDAY yet!

My favorite shopping day of the year by far is Black Friday. Super crazy I know, but I've woken up year after year at the crack of dawn to go to the mall and shop til I drop. This year I think I'm going to sleep in. I found some awesome deals online both yesterday and today so there's really no need for me to go to the actual stores.

If you love Black Friday as much as I do, you probably already know its the one day a year New York & Company has their fabulous 50% off sale on EVERYTHING! It started yesterday on their website and I ordered one of those comfy velor jacket and pants set in graphite heather grey. Both were on sale for $14.97 each.

I also picked up the graphite heather sequin tank from their ComfortZone collection for $9.97 to wear with the velour jogging suite. It will look super cute for winter and the holiday season!

I also decided to check out American Eagle as well and saw they are having a Thanksgiving Day sale online; 25% off and FREE SHIPPING off any order. Even items from the clearance section! Can't beat that. Whenever I went to actual AE stores on Black Friday they never really have any steep discounts.

I ordered the AE Herringbone flats from the clearance section in both red and grey. They came to only $18.71 a pair. I doubt I will actually keep both colors. I'll decide which ones I prefer when I see them in person.

I also ordered the suede AE Tumbleweed boots. LOVE LOVE LOVE boots. Especially slouchy ones like these that have that vintage worn in look. These boots sold for $89.50 at full price. They were also from the clearance section as well and I ended up getting them for only $44.96!

I'm not really one to order shoes online and have never purchased any shoes from AE. I'm hoping I'll like them just as much in person and that they will fit right! If not I suppose it's not the end of the world as I can easily return them to my local AE store.

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Black Friday shopping! :)

NY& Co. clearance rack finds!

This past weekend I went to the mall and found some great super cheap stuff in the clearance section of my New York & Company. There was a ton of stuff and EVERYTHING was 70% off! (On top of that I also got an additional discount for being a Triple A member). If you shop at New York & Company definitely check out the clearance section! They are probably clearing older merchandise so they can put new stuff out for the holiday shopping season.

Anyways here is my haul...
I got this shirt. It's just a simple white shirt with elbow length sleeves and flower detailing at the neckline. The retailed for $18.95 at full price. I nabbed it from the clearance rack for $4.26!

I also got a plain black shirt that looks similar to this one. Instead of flowers, it has silver rhinestones around the neckline. Unfortunately I couldn't find a picture of it on, guess they must have sold out of it online. It was $4.26 as well.

My favorite of all is the plaid ruffle cami's I got. I was ecstatic with this find, so much so that I ended up buying it in three colors (the fuchsia/cranberry color shown in the picture below, the brown plaid print, and the black plaid print)!

They were only $6.07 each (a HUGE markdown from the original sale price of $26.95)! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the plaid print and the ruffles... its just super super cute! I've only had them since Friday and I've worn the fuchsia and black ones already! Plus after going into another NY&Co. store this weekend and seeing these camis still marked at full-price I know I was very lucky to get such a great deal on them! :)

Happy clearance rack shopping! XOXO

These boots were made for walkin'

I love UGG style boots but as a recent college grad I can't justify paying a couple hundred dollars for real ones. Maybe someday. I've been on the search for a new pair for the winter and this past weekend while I was watching TV I saw the cutest pair of UGG style boots in Macy's Veterans Day sale commercial . Less than 24 hours later I was on ordering myself a pair. They just came today and they really are super cute! Unlike most imitation UGGs they are REAL suede and were on sale for only $39.99! Can't beat a deal like that. Cold Jersey winters, I'm ready for you! These are the boots that will be keeping my feet warm & cozy...

Style&Co. Witty Cold Winter Suede Boots $39.99

Since UGG style boots always seem to be popular but not everyone wants to spend so much on the real thing I thought I would blog about my find and the other cute and affordable alternatives I have found. Winter is just around the corner after all!

Style&Co. Shorty Cold Weather Suede Boots $39.99

Embroidered-Graphic Faux-Suede Boots $34.50

Faux-Fur Lace-Up Boots $39.50

Steve Madden Avalon Sweater and Suede Boot $59.99

Pearls are a girl's bestfriend...

Next year when looking for a Halloween costume idea never underestimate the potential of your Grandmother's closet (if you have a stylish Grandma that is)! What did I find in my Grandma's closet? A vintage shift dress style gown and pill box hat that I used this past weekend to recreated a Jackie O look. And of course you can't forget Jackie's staples- pearls and a pair of over-sized sunglasses! The frames I'm rockin' are my own pair of Coach Georgette in Light Tortoise.
