I Can’t Believe That’s From…: Old Navy

One of my favorite things to do with my outfits is surprise people. Not necessarily with what I’m wearing (my style is pretty tame), but with where what I am wearing was purchased. It gives you a little sense of validation as far as your shopping skills go to hear someone say “I can’t believe you found that THERE!”.

I decided to do a post on this because the above reaction has been occurring more and more frequently when I’m wearing pieces from (drum roll please)…OLD NAVY. My roommate has actually said to me “please do not tell me that you bought that at Old Navy” because she really can’t believe that I’m finding all of these super cute pieces there. If you are looking to stay on trend on a budget and haven’t taken a look at what they have in awhile, make a trip there ASAP. Check out some of my faves below (apologies in advance for the number of items, but really I love pretty much everything):

After all of that, I didn’t even include workout or swim items. Which are also amazing and you should check out.

Let us know if you find any fun new pieces for your wardrobe at Old Navy in the comments below!

Restock Alert! Glossier Stretch Concealer and Generation G Lipsticks…

UPDATE: As of July 13, Glossier announced that the sold-out Stretch Concealer and coveted Generation G Lipsticks are BACK. Grab them before they’re gone. If you’re new to Glossier, take 20% off your first order via: http://bff.glossier.com/d5bsl.

Mark your calendars! Glossier has announced that the sold-out Stretch Concealer and coveted Generation G Lipsticks will be restocked this July.

Glossier-Review-Generation-G-Lipstick

Demand overwhelmed supply very quickly, and only the first to add to cart were able to get their hands on these cult beauty favorites so far this year. I snatched up Generation G in ‘Crush’ and just can’t get enough. It is the perfect compromise between lipstick, lip stain, lip gloss and balm. I want to collect them all (and not run out of my current supply before July – we’ll see!).

Also on my list upon restock is Glossier Stretch Concealer. Based on the blogger reviews to date, I have no doubts that this product lives up to its promise!
Where-to-Purchase-Glossier

So, what is in stock?

  • The new Flavored Balm Dotcom Trio {for a limited time!} features three fun flavors in Rose, Cherry, and Mint.
  • Boy Brow (in all 3 shades!) is currently in-stock and ready for ation.
  • My new favorite face wash, Milky Jelly Cleanser, is also available. (My favorite travel option is Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes).
  • If you’re in need of a new mask (or just up for trying a bunch of options), the Mega Greens Galaxy Pack has received high marks, and I trust the Moisturizing Moon Mask is a keeper, too.
  • Glossier also recently debuted some darling merch, including sweatshirts, pink pouches, logo pins and terry headbands.

Shop Glossier here, and get 20% off your first purchase + Free Shipping (over $30) and Free Returns on everything.

Holiday 2015 Wish List

In anticipation of Cyber Week, we’ve rounded up our top gift picks (to give, or receive) for 2015.

First up, GOLD & GLAM:

Gift-Guide-2015

1. LOREN HOPE LUCILE NECKLACE IN CRYSTAL • Bring on the ice, ice, baby!

2. SYDNEY LARGE ZIP CLUTCH by FOSSIL {Also check out the SYDNEY ZIP PHONE WALLET & RFID ZIP PHONE WALLET} • I’ve had this wallet for 2+ years in red and ♥ it! Ready to go for the gold.

3. TORY BURCH METAL LOGO STUD BRACELET {Have a Fitbit? Check out the TORY BURCH METAL HINGED BRACELET} • P.S., Santa, I could really use a Fitbit…

4. MARIPOSA EAR JACKETS from BAUBLEBAR, only $32! • I’m typically not into trendy jewelry, but these are gorgeous {and appear to be pretty timeless, too}.

5. Q GRANT CHRONOGRAPH WATCH by FOSSIL • Form meets function. This stylish watch is Bluetooth smart-enabled. The built-in activity tracker lets you know how many calories you’ve burned and steps you’ve taken!

6. S’WELL SPARKLING CHAMPAGNE STAINLESS STEEL WATER BOTTLE • I have the 17oz bottle and use it daily! Stocking up on a few more as gifts. Stay hydrated, my friends!

7. BRASS STAG BOTTLE OPENER FROM ANTHROPOLOGIE • Speaking of hydrated… this darling piece of decor doubles as a bottle opener. Could you ask for anything more? {Ok, ok, if you need a corkscrew, let us recommend the RABBIT. And you could probably use the VINTURI DELUXE AERATOR SET, too.}

8. TORY BURCH AMY PUMPS • These shoes were made for… holiday parties! A nice chunky heel is classic and chic, while keeping you comfortable.

Now on to Nordstrom. You can easily get LOST in the selection of merch offered by our favorite “Free Shipping. Free Returns.” retailer. We’ve combed through Nordstrom.com and selected some practical picks for holiday 2015:

Norstrom-Outfits[From Left to Right]

1. SLEEPY HOLLOW TURTLENECK SWEATER BY CUPCAKES AND CASHMERE • {Looks like Cream is SOLD OUT — Shop similar styles at L.L. Bean} • Trust us on this one, fishermen sweaters NEVER go out of style.

2. SOLOISTE FEATHER HEM LACE BODY-CON DRESS • Doesn’t it look like a million bucks? It’s from the Juniors section, so size up and save some serious $$$.

3. SCALLOP FRILL TEE • Frivolous, but necessary, am I right?

Nordstrom-Gifts-2

[From Top to Bottom]

1. LEATHER MATINEE WALLET BY TED BAKER LONDON • So many color options, what’s a girl to do?

2. DEBORAH LIPPMANN ‘ROAR’ NAIL COLOR Great gift idea for when you have fancy friends, but you’re not a millionaire yet.

3. MICHAEL KORS BRACELET WATCH • I honestly can’t decide between this and the Fossil Q… Can you?

4. MARC BY MARC JACOBS NEW Q NATASHA CROSSBODY BAG • I’ve had my eyes on this ‘prize’ for years. Should probably make a move now, since rumor has it Marc by Marc Jacobs is shutting down {i.e. nothing will be under $1,000 ever again…}

Best-Faux-Leather-Leggings
And last but not least, the best faux leather leggings you ever did see/wear/experience: LYSEE FAUX LEATHER LEGGINGS • Just got these – worn them ONCE and can’t tell you how many people have stopped me to ask, “Where did you get those pants?” Best part is, they are basically leggings // extremely comfortable!

Pro Tip: Wear a tunic / longer top if you don’t wanna look like Sandy from Grease.

Target Black Friday Deals – 2014 Preview

It’s been a tradition of ours to roll into Target during the wee hours of the morning on Black Friday.

Not necessarily because we need anything, but because:
A. Target is the best
B. We enjoy watching people in their pajamas ransacking towers of $2 DVDs

This year, Target is offering Black Friday Deals online all day Thursday, which is perfect, because I’m flying to Seattle for Thanksgiving and will have to forgo my typical 2:00am Target Run.

Whether you plan to hit your nearest Target store, or stay home in your yoga pants, the Black Friday preview on target.com provides all the info you need to pre-plan your shopping:

Target-Black-Friday-Deals-Doorbusters-Preview

And the very best deal of all…
