I purchased my first faux fur vest a year ago at Forever 21, and seriously thought it was a trend that will soon go away. I was wrong. Way wrong. My love for fur is stronger than it's ever been, and I'm not alone. Like leather, faux fur accents are popping up everywhere this season. I think I just might be brave enough to invest in another statement piece! ;)
My favorite part of holiday shopping is nailing the perfect gift for the kiddos. I love walking up and down those chaotic toy isles and reminiscing about my childhood. I have a HUGE extended family, and over the past few years, my friends have started to grow their own families... so there's always a little one to shop for! I'm no expert, but hoping this quick guide will help you play Santa for the holidays.
Yes, this is happening! The Black Friday deals have been extended to give you the most out of your Thanksgiving holiday sales. In many cases, Cyber Monday is turning into Cyber Week or Cyber Month! Like I did on Friday, I'll be tweeting my favorite Cyber Monday deals on Twitter (follow me). Here are just a few of my favorites:
The day has finally arrived! This is when my boyfriend and father looks at my mother and I, shakes their heads (with question), and laughs, as we prepare to head out to the madness called Black Friday. To be honest, it's not just about getting great deals. It's a tradition. Mom and I plan a serious shopping strategy, make a pit stop at Starbucks for a treat, visit just about every mall in the city, then take a long, afternoon nap. It might sound crazy, but we both look forward to it every year!
If you prefer to stay in today, I don't blame you...I've got your back! Here's a handful of online Black Friday deals you don't want to miss out on! It'll be difficult, but remember: this is the perfect time of year to shop for others on your holiday shopping list ;)

Men are probably the hardest to shop for. Especially when they seem to have it all.I enlisted the Mr. in my life to help me put together this post, so it's got a man's stamp of approval. Christmas will soon be here before you know it, and with Black Friday right around the corner, it doesn't hurt to have a plan. If you need a few ideas, I have quite thelist for you below:
So....remember that old school fashion rule that required women to stay FARaway from whites after Labor Day? It's the 21st Century. We wear what we want, when we want to, right? I've always wondered why some modern ladies fall victim to such a silly rule. As far back as the 1920s, even Coco Chanel resisted the mandate and made white a year-round staple (source). These stylish fashion mavens have also embraced the color and brilliantly incorporated Winter white into their outfits, during these colder months of the year.
Finding white pieces in November is much easier than you may think! Here are just a few Winter white favorites I spotted online. Yes, If you haven't noticed, I'm totally co-signing the idea of breaking "the rules" and adding splashes of white to your outfits.
