Black Friday – We Went Shopping

In annual Black Friday ‘Midnight Madness’ shopping tradition, we went shopping right after Thanksgiving dinner. Stores opened at 9:00pm at the Pleasant Prairie Premium Outlets in Kenosha, WI and Jack, Matt and I found some great deals!

Here’s a recap:

First Stop: J.Crew



Jack brought some shirts. Ironically, the polka dot chambray looks super similar to this number – one of my favorite shirts! #ThatAwkwardMomentWhenYouAreWearingTheSameShirtAsYourBrother.

JCrew-Black-Friday-Sales Matt also found some shirts and girlfriend approved!

And I found, well, several things.
Clearly, I was attracted to Peter Pan collar tops.

And these Pixie Pant Jodhpurs.

And sweaters…Because you can never have too many sweaters!
I got the V-neck in navy blue at last years’ sale and wear it all the time. Opted for a bright blue this time around a merino Tippi ‘Charley’ sweater in kelly green.

And lastly, the Factory Pleated Shift Dress in Floral.
This piece, true to my ‘Quality Control‘ review earlier this week, is definitely lower quality than the original. But, it’s such a fun print and was only $30, I decided to go for it! (As a reference, it’s currently $54.00 online, so the sales in store and online are not exactly the same. Neither is the selection – much more to choose from in-store).

But, of course, you can’t beat shopping J.Crew Factory from the convenience of your own home. And — lucky for all of us — J.Crew Factory Online Sale = 50% Off Everything!

We zipped in and out of J.Crew the came Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, Fossil, Target…
Between the three of us we found some great gift items (for ourselves…and others…)

Mens-Fossil-Watch-Sale Matt found some nice Fossil watches. Shop the selection.

Brooks-Brothers-Flannel-Button-Down-Shirt-Sale We brought my dad some good ‘ol Brooks Brothers flannel button downs.


Confession: I’ve been wanting a Target ‘pleather‘ jacket for a while now. I actually want a fancy genuine leather jacket, but of course the practical #HelpMeImPoor version is this $20 Target number (typically $40, so get it while it’s on sale)! Since it’s trendy a not an everyday jacket, I don’t mind going faux. Shop similar.

Another Black Friday, another successful shopping trip! What did you find? Let us know in the comments below!

Sale Roundup

Keep Calm

Well, it’s almost Thanksgiving and the deals are already everywhere. This is the perfect time of year to really focus on what you are thankful for…family, friends, amazing sales. Although The JCR Girls would never be caught dead in a Black Friday mob situation, we can’t lie – we love the sales.

I’m sure you all saw the email this morning, J. Crew Factory has already started their 50% off of everything promotion. Yes, everything. Marty has the best tips for Black Friday shopping at Crew. Check them out before embarking on your adventure.

Bloomingdale’s is having its Big Brown Bag sale (aka up to 50% off select items). So fill your bag up with gifts for everyone and maybe this quilted jacket too, because…elbow patches.

C. Wonder will give you 30% off (use code GIFTS30) when you buy three items or more (regular price or sale, because they like the giving part of Thanksgiving). I’ve already got a few items for my mom and sister in the good ol’ shopping cart.

Shopbop is having one of my favorite kinds of sales…buy more save more (use code BIGEVENT13). It doesn’t get better than that. Check out their glam gift guides for the most stylish people in your life.

Save 30% on your entire order from Lands’ End. Pick up some monogrammed wellies…oh, and a nice pair of socks and gloves for your dad for when he has to shovel this winter.

Sole Society is giving you 8 Days of Deals. Fingers crossed for a deal on boots because…you cannot pass up these babies (um, separated at birth situation here…twins much?).

As always, Target has an offer that will send you to the checkout with nothing that you need….but everything that you want. 40% of dresses and sweaters, and buy one get one 50% off boots.

Save 25% or more on select brands at Nordstrom. You’re sure to find something for everyone on your list. If you’re not sure where to start take a look at the expertly curated lists of the most giftable items.

Enjoy 30% off already reduced items from Club Monaco. I might need this coat to keep me warm on my walk from the subway to work and I can think of a few people who would love finding these stacking rings in their stockings.

Phew, well all that sale stalking was my cardio for today. Time for a cup of coffee and a Pinterest session.

Happy Shopping!



The Year of the Trendy Turkey…

Start getting those Turkey Day outfits and Black Friday wish-lists ready now…nobody likes an unfashionable party guest, or worse an unprepared shopper! A few of the new Crew items should keep you in good standing with your hostess with the mostess as well as your shopping companions:

Starry, starry night:

Starry Night Cardigan- $128

This perfect party cardi adds just enough shine to your wardrobe without going overboard (I would suggest sticking with the black, however, and avoiding the dark cypress option…). Sparkle as you eat your stuffing and make all of the other party-goers jealous.


Lace Rows Tank Top- $110

Crew says it perfectly in the newest catalog- this top, along with all of the others featured on page 027, have me singing with joy. So many colors to choose from, so versatile, so PERFECT.

Oh Minnie You So Fine…:

We are mad for Minnie-in only the best way possible, of course. The Minnie pant has become a staple of the J. Crew collection and with so many to choose from should be a staple in your wardrobe, too.

So those are just a few ideas of things to throw together for the holidays if you haven’t started thinking about it yet. But to make it easy for you, you could show up in any of the following outfits featured in the new Crew catalog and be okay with me:

(The head wear is a little questionable…but hey I’m not one who is known to shy away from a cooky hat- so go for it if your little heart desires!)
