F21 - randoms

Forever 21 (F21) has free shipping (fs) today, Mon, 11/30. Usually you can get fs with $75 or more, so this is an excellent deal -- esp if you are able to return items in person & save on return shipping fees. If you return it in-store it's store credit only. Check the return policy for specific information.

JCBelleMarie blogged about a couple of Forever 21 (F21) orders she recently made. Click here to check out her picks.

When I saw this faux fur stole on JCBelle Marie's blog I knew I had to look for it in-person. Loveth!

Lady Capelet Jacket - Scroll waaay down in this post to see it on Kim/Anthroholic. Kim -- not that it matters, but I swear I am not copying everything you buy. ;-) I bought before seeing how darling you are in it.

Size M
Career Blazer - It's grey, which I love. Fully lined I believe.
Size M
Stone Strands Necklace

Leaflet Beaded Sweater Cardigan - Almost bolero-ish, but very well done.

A couple more random items...

Striped Cardigan - 100% cotton
Faux Fur Ear Flap Hat - So fun!

p.s. Rue La La has a Cole Haan boutique open. Lots of goodies are sold out, but there still some cute things left. If you're not yet a member click here to join Rue La La. If you sign up before Dec 24th, you will receive a $10 credit.

Anthropologie - Bric-A-Brac Booties

Anthro's Bric-A-Brac Booties are on sale for $89.95 - I wear a size 7.5 and ordered an 8. I wish I had read the comments before ordering because it sounds like I should have ordered a 9. We'll see what happens...

And now here are a few picks in the inspiration of Anthropologie.
The first three are from Aldo Shoes. Aldo is offering Free Shipping thru Mon, 11/30. Returns can be made to the store, which is convenient.

1) Kaase - $29.98

2) Miriello - $29.98 for this color, $40 for another color pattern

3) Fronori boot

4) Style & Co brand from Macy's - approx $35 - I don't see this shoe on the web, unfortunately. However, I have seen them at two different Macy's. They run TTS.

NY & Co - cute bow handbag & more

Today, Mon 11/30 only, NY & CO has 50% off everything + free shipping. It looks like the online code is 4136.

New York & Co's bow tote - $21.47 after 50% off. I saw this cute tote on the adorable Anthroholic/Kim (scroll down for irl pics). That chick looks good in everything ;-) but I had self control & didn't order it.

I looked for it a couple times when I was in NY & Co to score the antique ruffle cardi. No luck on the handbag at that time.
Size M
I braved the malls this past Saturday just to look around and ended up seeing the handbag hanging at the end of a random clothing rack! It must've been a return as I didn't see another. It's PVC, but looks very close to leather. I love that it's matte and not plastic-y.

It's smaller than this once the tissue paper stuffing is removed. Loveth! Thanks, Kim for sharing the info on this!

Pull-Through Faux Fur Scarf - $12.47 after 50% - Me loveth the pale wheat...with an ivory coat and a pair of wrap sunglasses. Yum!
City Stretch Boyfriend Jacket - $34.97 after 50%
Size XS - I don't have the ticket info, but I'm pretty sure this is the stretch boyfriend jacket and not one of the other ones on the site. I am sure I tried a XS.

Foldover crossbody bag - $16.47 after 50% - My camera is currently dead and I can't take a pic of this for you, unfortunately. I really wanted to share the red w/you because it's so pretty.

Long Knit Gloves with Button Trim - $7.47 after 50% - I'm a fan of the medium heather grey (next to black). The buttons on the wrists are so cute.
City Style Bow Clutch - $9.97 after 50% - I haven't seen it in person, but most of NY & Co's faux leather looks pretty good. Furthermore, this is the price I want to pay for something I will only use a handful of times.

p.s. How freaking cute is this (!!!) as a lower price alternative to J Crew's $286 ruffle front coat.

Spiewak Whitman coat - Only size L left right now on Revolve Clothing. However, they are taking re-orders and expect a restock on Dec 1.

Charlotte Russe - BOGO

As of Sat, 11/28, Charlotte Russe was having BOGO (buy-one-get-one-half-off). I wandered into the store to have a look.

Ruffle Cardigan - $24.99 - Click here.
Size M - The pic doesn't show the color very well. I think it might go well with J Crew's double serge cotton skirt in bronzed twig.

Size S - I went back and got this one.
I love the ruffle at the 3/4 sleeve. Adorable!

Fleece Hooded Robe - $21.99 - Click here.
One Size
Ruffle Chemise - $13.99 - Also from the sleepwear dept.
Size S - too small for me
Denim Shirt Dress - $29.99 - Click here.
Size M - Love the pockets, of course. Went back and got the L in this one, along w/the pink ruffle sweater (above).

Ok, so there are some loose threads. What're you gonna do except snip them off. It's an inexpensive dress.
Ruched Sleeve Cardigan - $24.99 - Click here.
Size M - This was one of my faves.

Striped Open Sweater - $19.99 - This caught my eye after I came out of the fitting room. Quite a bit long for me, but very very cute. It's lightweight, and a bit sheer, I'd say.
Ruffle Open Front Sweater - $26.99 - I thought it'd be acrylic but the website says it's 100% cotton.
Tie Heather Sweater - $26.99 - I think this one is acrylic. It looks quite a bit like Anthro's graceful point cardigan. I love my graceful point cardi, but it does pill a bit at the chest. Spending more money can't cure the pills I guess.

If you order online, be sure to enter your email address to receive a 10% offer. It can be used along w/bogo. Interestingly, they don't provide a code. You have to click thru the email that comes to your box. The 10% is then automatically applied.

p.s. J Crew's EXTRA20 ends today. I added a couple of irl pics earlier today in this post.

J Crew - Last Day for EXTRA20

Today is the last day to save an additional 20% off of sale items at If you spend $150 or more (subtotal after applicable discount), you will get free shipping. The code is EXTRA20. Here are a few highlights:

Shoulder sash dress
Size XS - This is from the loungewear dept and cannot be winterized for cool temps, imo. At least not outdoors.

It's thin, but I would wear it on a hot summer day. I'm on the fence about keeping it, but it's cute.
Tissue sparkling rose tee

Size S - XS would have been preferred, actually. It felt baggy in the wrong places, namely the neck area.

I don't like this tee. I see why other s have fallen in love with it, but it didn't strike me in the same way, to tell the truth.
Butterscotch wool flannel schoolboy
Size 2
Size 4P - I haven't removed the tissue from the buttons yet.

I'm happy with the 4P. And I was even happier when I saw this Polyvore from Fabulous Florida Mommy! I haven't tried the Loft sequin tank with the blazer yet but it looks like a winning combo.

ETA -- I have to show some love for the three quarter sleeve stretch shirt. Papaya & bistro orange (pictured) are $29.99 before 20%.

Size S (regular, not P)
There are a few more highlights in this post. And yes, I do love the wool twill studio trouser irl. The 6P was great for me, as well as the copper color!
