Let’s face it. It’s hard NOT to shop for yourself over the holidays! I know we are supposed to be shopping for others BUT with so many great deals RIGHT in front our our faces...I mean, how can we not?! So if we are gonna do it, here are some of the places I recommend for the best deals...that way we don’t have to feel quite as guilty about it! 😊

 

Starting with my first look, the dress I got SO many compliments on from Instagram...my little sexy pilgrim look. This dress comes from one of my favorite online shopping destinations: Shopbop. It’s on a ridiculous sale right now...under $30!!! And that’s characteristic of Shopbop, as they often have all of my favorite designers at up to 70% off in sale! So if you’re itching to shop some new fall and winter looks, I highly recommend giving them a look! 

 

The second look is from South Moon Under. They also often frequently discount excellent pieces down to unbelievable prices! They also have a small men’s selection, for my hubby, which he enjoys, AND they offer frequent denim deals from great brands like AG and Blank NYC! 

 

The thirds look is a hodge-podge of many favorite places, but let’s focus on the jacket. How seasonally appropriate, right? I love plaid for winter. Anywho, this little baby was scored from Von Maur! Here’s the secret about Von Maur...their markdowns are predictable. Yup. Every Wednesday is the first wave of markdowns and Thursdays are further markdowns. I caught the jacket on a second markdown. And I’m obsessed with it. And we all lived happily ever after!

Stepping Out

There's nothing like a great summer night out. When there's clear skies and a cool breeze blowing it's always going to be a good night!  The scene in Atlanta always allows you to take advantage and dress up a little too! Whether you're dining out in Buckhead or catching a movie out in Brookhaven, it's fun to get out and let your hair down just a little bit!  

Two of my favorite colors for a night out are always a bold red and a classic black, so I'm showcasing both of these sexy new looks today! 

Lets go red to begin! I LOVE this curve hugging dress! It's a good length so not too over the top sexy where you can't wear it for a work party, but the curves are highly accentuated for that bit of mystery. The off shoulder look is perfect for a hot summer night. It brings an heir of drama and offers up a unique style. Not your basic red dress.  We don't do basic over here. No ma'am! I paired this look with my favorite new pair of Christian Louboutins. Red bottoms with a cherry on top! I love a red bottom with a red dress. So chic! This look is also partnered with the summer "it girl" bag, not convenient if you're carrying small items, they will fall right out! But for a night on the town where you're carrying a lighter load, this is quite perfect! The beautiful thing about this dress is that you can accessorize it up heavily, like I choose to with a bold statement necklace, or you can go bare and it still looks lovely.

Now on to the little black dress! I have so many black dresses, to add another to the collection it's gotta be unique and worth the space in my closet. This dress checks all of the boxes. The slits! The sleeves! The shoulders! THE DRAMA!!! Oh, I love this dress. Form fitting and flattering on the hips, a perfect neckline for a bold necklace (hello my friend, your transitioned from red to black without batting an eye you little minx!) I love that necklace, in case you haven't noticed, it's quite versatile! The sleeves on this dress are what you want to write home about. They are trendy, because everything right now is about the bell sleeve, BUT the slits in the sleeve make it unique. Everyone isn't wearing this dress honey, YOU ARE. And you're KILLING IT! I chose to pair it with a trusty pair of wedges and they work nicely but really, any heel will do! This dress plays well with others and it's a show stopper without needing sequins. Dress it up for a big event! Wear it as is for dinner. Sold!
