I love a store where I can find great deals on accessories that I didn’t even know I wanted, but I’m always up for seeking out metallic details, fun florals, animal prints, texture, & sparkle in the special extras that really bring an outfit to life. When looking through all of my #BlackFriday emails, I kept the one for GOjane nearby, knowing that I was going to have to talk about it in a post. Well, here it is, with deals ranging from 25-60% off & FREE SHIPPING on orders $50 or more!
In keeping with all of the latest #BlackFriday deals, I wanted to mix things up & show some accessories that will not only make perfect gifts, but will definitely spruce up any winter wardrobe rut you’re in. New York & Company‘s entire website is 50% off & it’s hard not to want to shop everything. I know I’m always looking for extras to mix up with my casual, party, & professional looks, which is also why I’ve picked the items below!
‘Tis the season for texture & glamour! There’s one trend covering that & it’s bowed ballet flats in black with a gold metallic detail. This style has caught my eye on all price points, starting with luxury fashion brands, trickling down to affordable retail department stores. Whether you’re shopping for velvet, suede, or patent leather, the mixture with a luxe gold accent is sure to complete any on-the-go look, or chic professional ensemble. Try mixing these styles with a skinny jeans & cardigan outfit when jet setting for a comfortable day of travel, a sheath dress & statement necklace for a family dinner, or a blouse & pencil skirt for a job interview.
The above flats range in price, but investing in high style doesn’t have to be limited to a working girl’s budget. Shop: Salvatore Ferragamo Varina flats ($475.00) @Saks Fifth Avenue, Kate Spade New York Tock flats ($198.00) @FootNotesOnline, MICHAEL Michael Kors Kiera flats ($125.00) @Neiman Marcus, ALDO Lovecia flats ($39.95) @DSW, & faux leather flats ($22.90) @Forever 21.

In an effort for some variety, I turned to my dear friend Christine for some blog inspiration. Of course, there’s plenty of great deals out there this weekend with all of the Black Friday sales, but I was intrigued by her question about mixing black & brown, as in boots & dress, or belt & bag. 2013 is a year to break the rules with accessories coordination & knowing which hues work best for your look, despite the myths that these colors don’t work together!
The first look I’m featuring shows a casual chic way to reinterpret a little black dress, including brown accessories: Faux leather waistband dress ($14.00) in black @Walmart, Brash Zane riding boot ($29.99) in cognac @Payless, Glitter disc earrings ($12.00) in brown @Dress Barn, & leather belt ($12.95) in brown @H&M.
To dress up a flattering brown sweater dress, I’ve picked some luxe black accessories to make this look perfect & effortless for the holidays. Here’s what we’re working with: Mossimo long sleeved sweater dress ($29.99) in brown heather @Target, sleek curb chain necklace ($12.80) in black / gold @Forever 21, & black bead & shell stretch bracelet ($7.50) in black / gold @JC Penney, & NYLA Elanino flat ($19.94) in black @DSW.
Other style myths worth breaking are the navy & black combination, as well as wearing gold & silver jewelry. There are so many ways around a clashing look, and often mixing metals & textures can be even more fabulous!

Fall fashion is all around us & I wanted to embrace the latest must-haves with a new post featured in Show Me The Shoes, including some stylish flats from Old Navy, one of my favorite stores to find affordable fashions & extra cherry-on-top great deals! I’m excited to pull out my past-season steals with new items, including fun & flirty shoes for any Style Darling on the go!
All for under $25 each, I can already picture these with different outfits, mixing prints & textures for a day at the office, heading to class at night, or when I’m out & about with the girls on the weekend. I especially love the trendy details like jeweled accents, ankle-straps & buckles, pointy toes, delicate bows, & cap toes.
I recommend the embellished ballet flat ($24.94) in asparagus, printed ballet flat ($22.94) in coral print, printed cap toe flat ($22.94) in black/white dots, & pointed ankle flat ($22.94) in clay mate.
