We all heard about the fabulous designer collection that came to Target, wrought with items for the household & whole family from Jason Wu, Marchesa, Diane von Furstenberg, Prabal Gurung, & more, courtesy of a collaboration with the ever so luxurious Neiman Marcus. However, aren’t we lucky that all of these glamorous items are up to 70% off on the Target website & in stores? I’ve been doing a lot of clicking around & have found that there are plenty of sizes available for the apparel, so it’s time to break out those gift cards & shop now!

When it comes to what to wear for the holidays, we naturally think of red, green, black, & metallics, but I’ve been seeing a whole slew of pastels this season, which is why I was so excited to share LOFT‘s grosgrain waist pleated dress ($37.50) in coral. Not only is it marked down from its original nearly $90.00 price tag, but LOFT is celebrating the holidays with a store & site wide 50% off sale on all clearance items, no code needed. Not to mention that this dress is perfect for special occasions in the spring & will even look chic with a blazer & textured tights for the office.
Finding more sale items to keep within out under $100 budget was easy since coral is such a feminine & bright color to wear for this holidays. The rest of this look includes the cardigan ($17.95) in black from H&M which is the ultimate wardrobe staple for any embellished top or watercolor sheath dress. Also, the glittered skinny waist belt ($3.80) in gold from Forever 21 is also available in pink, mint, & purple for your every pastel need. The look comes together effortlessly with the color block pointed toe pump ($12.49) from Charlotte Russe that has a special metallic detail between the nude & coral hues.
Other accessories to help complete this look are the Mossimo exotic skin envelope clutch ($14.99) in gold from Target, which will coordinate well with any LBD, denim & sequins look, or classic shirtdress. Lastly New York & Company‘s neutral tri-color bib necklace ($10.00) is a polished finishing touch that will also make the most basic button-down shirt or scoop neck tee a little more glamorous for day. The grand total for this look comes to $96.76, before taxes of course.
I’ve been taking my time sifting through the pages of all my favorite issues of the December magazines, checking out the best deals on gifts for my Style Darling pals without breaking my budget, while still offering something fun & useful to make 2013 all the more beautiful. If you’re in a rut & need to pick up a few fashionable extras while scoping out the great deals @Forever 21, check out their beauty products, which are always a great way to discover new hues & change up your routine. I picked out the love & beauty eyeshadow ($2.80) in beige, jade, & gunmetal since they’re perfect for any look & season. To apply these shimmering shades, I’ve also selected the cheetah pattern cosmetic brushes ($3.80), which comes with 5 valuable pieces for bringing out your best features.
Switch up the usual cosmetic must-haves & add some bling inside your bag with the rhinestoned mirror compact & tweezer set ($5.80). You’ll love applying the essential hues for day, night, & parties in the lip gloss trio ($4.80) which is available in four different combinations, including rose/cherry, red/berry, pink/hot pink, & natural/bronze for every skin tone. Take advantage of the bold nail art trend hitting Instagram with the color tip nail kit ($8.80) with 8 matte shades, necessary for any polish collection.

I’m guilty of doing some fabulous Black Friday & Cyber Monday shopping… on myself, but why not? The deals were just too good to miss & my wardrobe needed a bootie update. Even though the Thanksgiving holiday sales have ended, it’s time to start thinking about winter, but fortunately, GOjane is offering an up to 65% off booties sale, which means that shoe indulgence may go on, without breaking your budget.
There’s so much potential for sprucing up your winter wardrobe by just changing up your footwear & that starts with the canvas oxford heel ($25.95), which will change up your jeans & sweater look, as well as transcend your professional ensembles with the mix of textures. The feather rosette bootie wedge ($13.95) is the perfect shoe for a feminine look, paired with a lacy sheath dress or tweed skirt & blouse. For casual days, I love the idea of the slouchy leatherette ankle boot ($16.95) for wide leg jeans with a flyaway cardigan & layers of beads.
I’m also crazy about wedges this season, which is why I’m sharing the lace-up bootie wedge ($28.60). They’re available in four other colors & will add a menswear edge to any outfit. For those of you who aren’t scared of a high heel, I recommend the chunky heel booties ($29.00) for your knit tunic& leggings look, or to add a modern twist to a preppy sweater dress. Lastly, if you’re not afraid of color, check out the two-tone velvet booties ($30.80), which especially bring out the holiday spirit. These hues & the combination of textures with sequins, leather, & corduroy will make your winter look that much more dimensional!
Do you prefer ankle booties instead of knee boots? Do you find it easy to style them with your current wardrobe? What’s your favorite shoe style for winter? Happy Styling!
After some much-needed down time during these holiday preparations, I am happy to share my latest post for Quickie Darling Deal & Steal, featuring the latest 50% off sale on select sweaters going on @Arden B. I’m all about posting the best looks, images, & articles that I find on Facebook by other fashion bloggers, & since it’s the weather is quite wintry here in New York, I’m excited about the idea of adding more sweaters to any wardrobe.
The cowl neck asymmetrical sweater ($35.40) in passion is a flirty & fun version of an oversize knit to pair with leather leggings, skinny jeans, or straight leg pants. The speckled foil sweater ($35.40) in black pattern is a dressy way to sport a sweater, perfect for wearing with a pencil skirt to a holiday party or with leggings & knee boots. The criss cross draped sweater ($35.40) in charcoal is a relaxed way to show off your style & have the opportunity to wear a chunky collar necklace, a bold brooch, or ornate metallic earrings. Lastly, the twisted ribbed sweater tunic ($35.40) in orange crush is the perfect knit for flattering your curves while on a date or having dinner with the girls.
