We made it to Friday!! It’s been one busy week for this chick. Well busy for me anyway. I’ve been Christmas shopping everyday and a couple of nights. I know, I know, BOO HOO for me. Truthfully, the older I get the more ALONE time I need. I’ve had to do a lot of peopling this week. It’s freakin exhausting!!!
One night this week I had the pleasure of helping my BFF Lisa shop for a party outfit. Apparently her company actually has a Christmas Party! What the what??? Of course, because I wasn’t looking for me, I found all sorts of awesome things. Now if I had been looking for me I wouldn’t have found squat! Ain’t that the way it always goes?
Today I’m sharing some of the items I saw while we were shopping, plus a few extras just for good measure. Let’s go online shopping!!!
This wrap style top from JCrew is a classic that can be dressed up or down. Isn’t it cute with these jeans? To dress it up, just pair it with a slim black pant and heels.
Ok I have to admit, I’ve had to repeatedly talk myself out of buying this beautiful little Top. I don’t know how much longer I can hold out. It’s a show stopper!! It also comes in a beautiful red. Ugh I could rock this top paired with my jeggings and some pointy toe booties! But I’ve already bought enough. 😢
This beautiful cranberry top caught my eye while shopping at Loft. I just love the chiffon sleeves and the satin ribbon accents. Oh and they are having a BIG OLE SALE!!! That makes everything look better.
This blouse is just so dainty and pretty to me. It would look awesome with your black, cranberry or silver velveteen jeans. The little metallic dots make this simple blouse party worthy.
So here are some of those velveteen jeans mentioned above. Again, this color is so rich and just perfect for Christmas. These are from JCrew, who just so happens to be running a big sale as well. Woo Hoo!
There’s nothing more badass to me than a wide leg pair of trousers. The wider the better!! Add a crisp white blouse, some sparkly jewelry and your sexiest heels, and you are ready for a night out.
Everybody, I mean everybody should own a pair of velvet leggings. Number one, they are sooo soft and comfortable. Plus they are STRETCHY! No Spanx needed here.
Oh these Tuxedo striped pants are so good looking!! They are a step up from your basic black pants. It’s so funny how that one little velvet stripe makes all the difference. I see these with a beautiful silk blouse, but they are super versatile and would work with so much.
This little shift dress would be flattering on so many body types. For some reason I see this lace number and I think cowboy boots. Wouldn’t that be cool?!?! Of course these strappy sandals work as well (but the boots sure would be more comfortable 😜). You won’t believe the price on this one!!!
This pic does NOT do this dress justice. I saw this Michael Kors dress in store, and it is just adorable!!! It’s both sweet and sexy. My favorite combination. The green is so much prettier in person. I would have to play around with shoes for this one.
This is another sweet flouncy dress from Michael Kors, and this one is on Sale! I love the plaid imprinted in the material and the way it shimmers. I wonder how this would look with a sexy pair of over-the-knee boots?? I’m guessing pretty HOTTT!
Ok this purple velvet Vince Camuto dress was also MUCH prettier in store. Someone had left it hanging in the dressing room, but I didn’t try it on. I wish I had. It has a nice V-back that helps set off the complete coverage in the front. I am not digging the shoes this chick is wearing with this dress. I would prefer a silver or metallic of some sort. Again, I would have to play around with it.
OMG this jumpsuit looked killer on my BFF!!! You have to zoom in to see the twist tie in the middle that works to cinch in your waist while camouflaging any tummy issues. The wide shoulder “straps” are also quite flattering. This is not a cheap option, but believe me it’s worth every penny!!
This is the one item I just HAD to try on. I cannot even tell you how beautiful the lace is on this gorgeous jumpsuit! It’s next level for sure. Then the pants part has a tuxedo feel to it. They are made of a heavier, more substantial fabric that is sure to hold in all the jigglies. I am swooning over here!
I know, I know, this one is super HOTTT and waaayyy out of the box, but damn I’m digging it!!! There’s no way in Hell I could pull off that top but maybe you could! Look at all the shiny goodness!!! You would definitely turn some heads in this bad boy.
Lord I didn’t mean to include every item I have ever seen. Lol. I sure hope you saw something that inspired you. If so, please let us know in the comments.
Have a great weekend my friends. We may be getting some snow!!!
