The Sales

Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend has to be my favorite time during the year for shopping! I go so many amazing deals already, so I thought I'd share some of my top picks and favorite stores with you. This weekend I got to go to a bunch of stores in person and scored some items from ACne, Mackage, Reiss and honestly way too many others (haha). I'll be sharing those on the blog shortly! Now that it's Cyber Monday I'm ready to take it to the keyboard and start scanning through my favorite brands.

I rounded up a bunch of brands and stores that I turn to when looking for the best sales while also getting similar quality to full priced items. Scan through some of these items below to get some inspiration and head to the bopttom of the post for links to tons of other brands that are also doing sales. I included the discount % and codes if applicable. Happy Shopping! Let me know what sale items you score in the comments!

Today in Trends: Star Prints & Patches

Claudia Di Capua

Stars are showing up everywhere! Whether they are patched on your denim jacket or printed on your bag, they are hear and ready to stand out in your spring wardrobe. Since this is one of my favorite emerging trends, I figured I would do a post discussing why I am a star lover and link a few of my favorite options from the denim, tops/sweater, bag and shoe categories for you all to shop! Comment below if you try anything out!

Denim

I love the look of stars on denim! Whether it comes in the form of patches or prints, the stars are a simple way to amp up your regular jeans or denim jacket. I recently purchased the Bagatelle jacket (top middle photo) and am super happy with it! The metallic stars are perfect and they really stand out.

More subtle options are also a great option. The bottom left option is a Paige denim jacket, but has smaller stars that don't pop out as much. There is a style for everyone when it comes to stars, but I'm so happy to be seeing them on my denim these days!

I'm excited to try denim on denim with the added twist of the stars. I recently have been sporting the "canadian tuxedo" a lot, so the stars will help to give my normal denim a little spin. Check out brands like Tommy HilfigerTopshop and Asos for more denim styles!


Tops & Sweaters

Blouses and sweater are awesome because they add that little bit of detail to casual looks. You can also dress the blouses up! For example, the top middle style with the red stars would be great for as part of an evening look. 

Some of the sweaters are blasts from the past, meaning they look vintage. This is perfect to add that 70's feel to you look. If you are looking for somethin like that, try out the JustCavalli sweater in the bottom middle spot to the right!

I don't currently have a any blouses with stars on them, but I am excited to stock up on them for warmer weather. I would love to try all of the Shopbop options I liked to the right! I also linked a bunch right above, so be sure to hover through those as well!

Bags

This has to be one of my favorite categories right next to denim! I love bags and lately have been very into statement bags. Stars are a must since this is the case! Of course, some of the major designers such as YSL and Marc Jacobs have the star concept down, but more affordable options have proven difficult to find quality styles. Luckily I was able to find a bunch of options at all price ranges!

Whether they are patches or printed on the bag, it is sure to act as a focal point of your look! I love all of the Kohl's options I linked to the right as well as the Farfetch bags I linked in the slides above. 


Shoes

Finally, we have another awesome item that we can throw a star on! I'm obsessed with the subtle use of star studs and patches on sneakers and boots! The entire top row does wonders for me. I love how these options are visually engaging, but not overbearing.

Of course, there is always a time and a place for a more vivacious pair of shoes. When done well, they steal the show! The Chiara Ferragni heeled sandals as well as the star boots on the bottom left are examples of how a statement featuring stars can be done right!

Forward and Farfetch have some amazing options, so be sure to check them out!

Last Minute Gift and Stocking Stuffer Guide

Claudia Di Capua

Click on any image below to be directed to where to purchase each item!


There is still time! Yes, I'm talking to you gift giving stragglers. There are still plenty of gifts to give that won't break the ban and that are relatively easy to find. I kept most of the stores included in this post contained to department stores so that everything would be easily accessible. Think Nordstrom, Lord & Taylor, Macy's, Neiman's etc. I love gifts like candles for a party host, watches for a guy in your life and perfume or lipstick sets for the ladies in your life. Let this act as a guide or gift giving inspiration!
