The weather this fall has been insanely confusing. I got this beautiful embroidered midi dress pretty late in the season and it sat in my closet for a couple weeks...until the prefect 70 degree day came out of nowhere. I dreamed of shooting it on the beach but sometimes you gotta improvise.
To give it a more seasonal feel I added a denim jacket, which is always good for a pop of color, and some neutral accessories. And you can't go wrong with a bright pink lipstick.
I put together this outfit for less than $50! It helps when you score your boots for a penny, and your denim jacket is thrifted :)
In full disclosure, I was feeling heavy and sized up with this dress. I made the mistake of ordering a large - and a medium or even a small would have been fine because it has such an oversized fit. It's a little sheer but if you wear nude underwear you can probably skip a slip. Zaful has tons of gorgeous (and very inexpensive) embroidered dresses and right now they are having a huge sale. I suggest you take a peek ASAP!
From head to toe:
- Sunglasses: Chloe Suzanna, Nordstrom Rack, $22, RV $350
- Jacket: Marc Jacobs, thrifted, $13
- Dress: Zaful, gifted, on sale now for $23.63! (thanks guys!)
- Bag: Street Level fringe bag, $7.50, RV $50
- Boots: Tesori, Nordstrom Rack, $0.01

Ella decided she was on strike so it was Ava who shot several of these - until Ella decided she could do it better and took the camera away from her. Artists can be temperamental, especially when they are 7 and 9 years old LOL.
Speaking of the girls, Ella has a personal appearance today (11/13/16) at the Justice store in the Willowbrook Mall in Wayne, NJ. It's from 6-8pm tonight and we'd love if you could join us. It's a Friends and Family event - please come and shop or just say hello :) Ella was also regrammed by Justice this week and her pic got over 6,000 likes! So exciting! Ella also asked if you could follow her Insta adventures on her own account, @missellasophie.
Today is also the last day of the Nina Kids flash sale where you can take 25% off all kids shoes (even clearance!) on their website with the code FALLKIDS. The girls put together a video of their top pics of the Nina Kids Spring/Summer 2017 collection on my YouTube. I'm not sure I'm ready to let them have their own channel yet.
As for my shopping picks of the week, there are a bunch of great sales! You can see all this week's sales on Lazar Shopping - I love how they organize their sales by day/week.
Tomorrow I'll be in the City taking Ava to her eye doctor so I figure we'll pop in to the Kids Market Building sale. Last round I got a bunch of super cute accessories on the cheap.
Kids Market Building
November 14-18, M 10-6, T-F 10-5
34 West 33 Street, Floors 3,5,9 & 12
Charlotte Olympia is this week but I'm skipping out of protest. Last round I was invited to VIP and everything was on the pricy side. This year they rejected me for VIP (thanks guys - more money to save for Sophia Webster!) so I'm not gonna bother with the notoriously long lines and poor selection and pricing.
November 17, 11-7
Roosevelt Hotel, 45 East 45 Street
If you're in the market for a fancy dress check out Teri Jon who had samples for just $70 last round! Check out the one of a kind piece I scored at the last sale.
November 20-21, 10-5

Hope to see you tonight at Justice! Also - be sure to follow my Insta stories (I'm just not a Snap girl...) where I share all the behind the scenes of my shopping adventures! It's the only way to be sure you don't miss a deal!
