Life has been crazy busy lately -- will catch up soon.  

Deal of the Century

I come to St. Louis for work at least 4 times a year.  I have become quite the regular with the shopping scene here.  I have my certain TJ's that I hit up because they always seem to carry Theory, Helmut Lang, JBrand, Vince, Pucci, and sometimes the random designer bag find.  I normally do a drive-by of Saks and NM, but since the deals are better at the TJ's and Nordstrom Rack, I don't normally stray from my sure bets.  

This trip I casually strolled into Nordstrom Rack to find they were having a rare designer shoe event where high end shoes (worn and refinished) were 49-79 dollars.  I am talking Louboutin, Valentino, Gucci, Tory Burch, Christian Dior, etc.  


I immediately started freaking out and just grabbed shoes and threw them in my cart.  

I am still in awe of the deals that I got.  I got all of these shoes for the price of one pair of really nice shoes.  
The bottom left corner were ones that a friend paid me to get her.  Valentino for 79 dollars.  

No shoe was more than $79.97 ...   

The sales associate there said they never know when this will happen and they just know when the truck shows up the day before. 

She said most of the shoes were just displays or returns with light wear and that they just refinish them to have new soles.  

Have you all ever found a deal like this?  I honestly couldn't believe it! 

TGIF

Blahhhhhh this has been a busy week.  I will be out-of-town again this weekend and next week begins the madness that is Junior League of Memphis Merry Marketplace.  We're getting closer to Christmas, which is really hard to believe.  This year has flown by.  


Yet another boring outfit brought to you by a public bathroom.  I wish I had something more interesting to share with you, but alas, this is as good as it's going to get.  The blazer is tartan, but you can't tell with the lighting.  


My Birthday is in less than a month and I have no idea what I want.  I have officially reached that age where birthdays aren't really fun anymore.  I'll be 28, which is just one more year closer to 30.   I've had my eye on a colored bag and I really like the 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel, but I am wondering if it's just a trend that will pass.  I ordered the black one back in the summer but returned it because I didn't like the leather and hardware choice.  I really like this colored one, though, and love that it comes with a shoulder strap now. 


I forgot to mention this on here a few weeks ago, but I have been obsessed with Homeland on Showtime.  I watched the whole first season in one day and have been caught up with the second season.  I would say that I reference Homeland at least everyday whether it's texting a friend with a Sergeant Brody sighting or playing the part of manic Carrie or referencing Abu Nazir.  As a former Political Science major who was always interested in counter-terrorism and espionage, this show is right up my alley.  I promise you'll love it.  Watch the trailer for the first season below.
  

Do you all watch Homeland?

To end this post I'd like to leave you all with something that has made me laugh all week- a cat in a wig.  Enjoy! 


Ringo Plaid Blazer



Olivia P is wearing the heck out of this Tibi Ringo Plaid Blazer.  I really love the matching pants to this blazer as well.  Both items would make great fall/winter outfit staples in my closet!



Would you wear these two items?  

Bootie Addiction


It's no secret that I love booties.  I could seriously wear a pair every day with tights or leggings.  These are some booties that I am loving right now.  I wish I could have them all! 

Weekend Outfit


An outfit from this weekend- Opening Ceremony dress and J.Crew pumps.  Chanel mini flap borrowed from a friend (although I'm adding one to my wishlist- didn't think I'd like something so small, but I did).

My hair changes color in every light.  Sometimes it looks brown, sometimes it looks really red, sometimes it looks auburn.  I'd like for it to look a true red eventually.  I love changing my hair color and get a kick out of seeing the different colors on me.  Maybe I should work as a spy for the CIA (really, if you're reading from the CIA hook me up).

Things I Love Right Now ...

1. Niven Morgan Gold- My friend Lauren introduced me to this lovely line of products.  The Floral Amber Gold scent is amazing.  I ordered the Niven Morgan Gold Hand Soap
 and it smells great.  


2. Red Hair - I've been trying to get my hair red and recently took the plunge and got it dyed red.  It will probably fade but it's fun for now.  


3. Estee Lauder Products - my friend Kyle works for EL in NYC and always hooks me up with some goodies from EL.  I am obsessed with their new scent Very Estee (not available yet in the US) and several of their makeup products.  I really like their BB Cream.  

4. Motorcycle Jackets- I am loving leather motorcycle jackets.  I have a black one, but I want a camel, burgundy, and brown one too.  Probably won't get them all, but I still love them.  
Top Row: H&M, Acne, Mango

5. Real Raw Beauty Wash- This is my mother-in-law's face wash/face oil that is all natural.  I have been using it for a few months now and it's amazing.  You can use it as a wash and then put a small amount back on your face as a facial oil.  It doesn't clog my pores or cause me to break out at all.  I highly recommend this if you're looking for something all natural for your face.  You can purchase it here
That's all I've got for today! 

Fall Houndstooth



Leather Jacket: Theory (via TJ Maxx last year)
Skirt: J.Crew

Winter Whites




I saw each of these pretty white outfits while perusing Daily Mail this weekend.  While I personally prefer Gwynnie and Sienna's off white versions, I do think Stacy looks pretty as well.  

PS- New items are up on the Blog Sale

TGIF


Last night I wore an adorable Target pencil skirt with my favorite sweater ever.  I have been so impressed with Target lately.  This skirt was only 22 dollars!  


I like to call this my Kristen Stewart hair.  She always has that messy severe side part thing going on.  


Lately

Top Left: Wearing the Target Leopard Dress
Top Right: Wearing an H&M sweater in one of my fav colors, Forest Green
Bottom Left: Wearing an old J.Crew skirt 
Bottom Right: Tweed Blazer from Target

One Pant, Two Ways

The Target Pants that I blogged about last week are back.  I wore them twice in the past week! 

I wore them once with a burgundy H&M sweater and Tory Burch heels.  

I also wore them with a Jason Wu for Target Cat tee and H&M red heels.  

French Hen

I scooped up this J.Crew French Hen sweater this weekend during the J.Crew 25% off of anything in the store event.

I wore it with my Nordstrom Rack leather skirt and Joie Day Dreaming smoking flats.
