Winter Is A-Coming.

November 11, 2010

It’s that time a year when you wake up in the morning and think, “what’s the weather going to be like?” Especially LA weather can be so unpredictable — 80 degrees one day then 50 degrees the next. Which is why I always keep a jacket on hand when I go to work. You never know what the office weather will be. And let’s be clear — I don’t take a JACKET… just a light coat that will keep me warm, yet not be too bulky or make everyone think I’m about to leave for the day. If you don’t have a work-type jacket, don’t fret. Head to J-Crew! Here are some of my favs:

1. Tweed Harriet Blazer: Sophisticated, put-together and can be work to work or even for a night on the town. Need I say more?

2. Double-drape Justine Jacket: This one is a little less work-looking and more trendy. Chic and very flattering due to the cut, this coat is a winner at work or anywhere you get cold!

3. Merino Necklace Cardigan: For all of you who just want to go cas’ and cashmere… then this one’s for you. Simple and super comfy, with just a touch of sass. Perfect for work and even dinner with your parents… or dinner with a date!

Motorcycle Leather Jacket : Yes, please!

February 20, 2010

I love, love, love this jacket. Its subtle, yet edgy and perfect for California winters and summers (falls and aprings too!). I like that this jacket is short, and a beautiful tan color yet, has the subtle hints of the “motorcycle” flare with its neck and bottom closures. Great to wear to work or out to the bars, right? From Banana Republic.

Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale!

January 6, 2010

It’s the 1 out of 2 times a year when Victoria’s Secret blows out 80% of their collection to make room for more, and that’s great news for savvy shoppers like yourself. So go on – head over their and check out what they have. Keep in mind that if someone is sold out, keep checking back because they will usually replenish their inventory…. such as the Fireside PJs below that I’ve been trying to get for forever! They have them in stock, just in the wrong size 😦

And also, if you do buy anything, check for promotional codes online. Just google search “Victoria’s Secret Promo Codes.” They always have stuff for free shipping or free lipgloss with purchase type deals.

And for now, here are some other those irresistible finds in VS!

Light Sweaters Made For California Winters

December 11, 2009

With the beautiful California weather, you really don’t need to wear anything heavier than a light sweater or coat. And one of the advantages of living by the beaches out here are having all the cool surf stores! Nope, I’m not a surfer and to disprove the myth that surfer brands only sell surfer looking stuff, I’ve picked out some of the cutest light-California-sweaters perfect for the non surfer. These can all be found at my favorite surf store, Becker’s Surf.

1. Hurley Winchester Plaid Jacket

Though this jacket looks thick, it’s actually no thicker than a regular hoodie material. I know because I’m wearing it now. The hood is removable as well. (This link is from Buckle, but I got mine at Becker’s Surf.. for cheaper!)

2. Element Institute Sweater

I love this sweater so much because of its lightweight material and the asymmetrical closure on the front. The large buttons ad a great touch as well!

3. Lucy Love Riding Jacket

It looks like a heavy pea coat, but it’s just a soft cover up that’s made to fool ya! Plus the contrast in the colors and buttons give this jacket a nice touch.

Race For The Cure! Pink Running Shoes

October 23, 2009

Though, this month is almost over, let’s not forget that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month! Not only am I a huge supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness and the search for the cure, I love pink. Don’t believe me? Check out the Lindsey Chen Loves Pink video. Anyway, back to the point. If you are in need of running shoes, these are definitely ones that you should have! They are super cute and support Breast Cancer Awareness. I am actually thinking about buying these as having alternate training shoes for when i run the Rock n’ Roll Marathon! Also, why not add some cute pink clothing to go with it? After all, who wouldn’t want to work out in style?

Oooooh Cardigans!

December 19, 2008

I’ve been resisting the urge to buy more clothing – because my closet is packed and so is my dresser. However, I cannot resist the urge to search the web and web shop without buying. And I found this amazingly comfortable cardigan that’s loungy yet can be dressy on sale for only $20 at Macys! SCORE!

A Peacoat would be nice.

October 23, 2008

I think I have become obsessed with buying coats/jackets and maybe that’s because it’s 46 degrees outside right now. I love peacoats as much as the next person, but having a peacoat that is both flexible and comfortable and STILL warm… well, now that’s just a bargain.

This particular coat is from American Eagle for approx 70 bucks, but you can get a 20% off with the online coupon code, and FREE shipping. Did I hear a bargain? It comes in light grey and navy. I love the gray but I always buy neutral colors. Maybe I’ll go for navy this time. Thoughts?

I got a deal at Banana Republic!

October 20, 2008

I’m usually not an impulse buyer but yesterday while walking by Banana Republic I saw this jacket and I had to have it. I didn’t fit into a size small (too big) and extra small was too small. Also the jacket was $250. After searching and searching and 2 stores later, I found the same jacket in the petite section of another BR. I quickly grabbed it. Turns out that up until yesterday they had a 30% off outerwear sale! When my jacket rang up at the register it was only $175…then of course I had to open up a BR credit card to get the extra 20% off and I got it for a grand total of $140. Boy, am I proud of my purchase.

Also when I signed up for the new card, I got a coupon book and here’s a tip, for all the online shoppers, use the promotion / coupon code NEWCARD for GAP, Old Navy or Banana Republic for an online 10% discount.
