Happy Thanksgiving/Black Friday

Happy Thanksgivings ladies and it gents.  I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving and got good and full.  Ya’ll know I did.  That’s why I am sitting on the couch blogging right now.  I am trying to plan my attack on Black Friday, and I thought I would share some tips with ya’ll.

First, make sure that ya’ll look through all the sales papers first.  You want to find out what stores have what on sale.

Next, write out a list of everything that you want at each store to see which stores need to be hit up first.

Third, get a team together.  Ya’ll need someone to stand by the line in front so that they can hold a place.  Lines can be super long once the sales hit.  Also, you need another person to help run around the store to get all the items that you are planning to buy.  So my suggestion is that you go in teams of at least 3 or more.

Also, dress comfortably.  You may need to sprint to a certain section of the store, so be sure that you got on running shoes and loose fitting clothing.

Lastly, after all that hard work you just did to get all those great holiday gifts, go home and relax.

 

So do you go Black Friday shopping?  How early do you get out?  Do you finish all your shopping on Black Friday?

Weekend Finds

Happy Monday!!  I had an incredible weekend!  During my shopping time, I decided to go to the thrift store to see if I could find any cute knick-knacks for the house.  I didn’t find anything for the house, but I did find something even better!

Diane von F├╝rstenberg !!!!!

This shirt was just sitting there waiting on this curviebirdie. Her button down tops are normally around $300, but guess what I paid . . . .$3.99! BOOM!!!!!

If it Weren’t for Old Navy, I’d be Naked

It’s the weekend baby!!!!  It has been extremely cold this week in Atlanta, and I don’t really have a causal coat for this weather.  I don’t want to wear my “Sunday” coat everyday, so I am in need of something a bit less dressy.

Well to my luck, Old Navy is having a great sale on outerwear.  In the store and online, outerwear is 50% off for the entire family.  So I will be in the store trying on coats this weekend.  If I can’t find something in the store that fits, online it is!

Outerwear Sale

 

Here are my top choices:

Women's Plus Performance Fleece Peacoats

Women's Plus Performance Fleece Peacoats $29.00

Women's Plus Frost Free Moto Jackets

Women's Plus Frost Free Moto Jackets $49

 

Women's Plus Short Canvas Trench Coats

Women's Plus Short Canvas Trench Coats $35

 

So these are the coats I would choose if I end up purchasing online.  Which do you like best?

Election Night Fashion

Happy Hump Day.  Well it’s the day after the Presidential election.  So this post will be on election day fashion. 

Ann Romney was seen casting her vote in Mass wearing a blue wool coat and black slacks with brown knee boots.  This look is very conservation, but super cute.  Liking the look Ann!!!!

The night of the election, she wore a red dress.  She looked like a first lady with the dress and her hair pulled back into a bun.

Presidential Election

And here is the 2nd Term First Lady Michelle Obama wearing Michael Kors.  She is looking very elegant and chic.  Michelle Obama is a fashion trend setter!!  She wears pieces from j. Crew as well as Michael Kors and Jason Wu.  She definitely was wearing her first lady fashion crown election night!!!
