The Best Home Decor Sales To Shop Right Now

Now that we are trapped at home literally all of the time, you may notice some things about your place. Like, how your bedspread is getting pretty ratty. Or how your cat really did rip your couch to shreds. Or how you’re pretty sure you’ll f*cking die if you have to look at the mismatched table and chair set you bought from Ikea when you got your first apartment 10 years ago for one more second. I’m not dramatic, these are facts. Being home really makes you reevaluate your space and want to live in a cleaner, less cluttered, and new environment. Lucky for you, redecorating is something that you can totally do online. (My new bed frame comes Monday.) And you don’t have to spend a ton of money to do it. Businesses are throwing out sales left and right to stay afloat, so I found some great sales on home decor so you can upgrade your place and not drain your savings!

Crate & Barrel

God, I love Crate & Barrel. It’s normally quite a bit out of my price range so I like to online window shop (which is the saddest thing ever, FYI) and pretend like I can afford it. However, they’re having sales pretty regularly. Right now they have free furniture delivery and 40% off outdoor furniture, 20% off outdoor rugs, 20% off furniture/lighting/wall decor, and 20% off clearance rugs/bedding. The nice thing about buying from here is that the stuff is definitely good quality, so now is the time to upgrade your space with investment pieces at a discount. If you’re lucky enough to have a yard, please get their gorgeous outdoor sets so I can live vicariously through you while I’m trapped in my tiny LA apartment this summer.

CB2

CB2 is super chic and definitely where real adults shop. Since I feel like a weird, fake baby-adult, I really appreciate when they have insane sales to make it more affordable. Right now, they have 40% off gifts, 30% off planters, and 30% off outdoor furniture. It seems like everyone’s getting a yard makeover before we’re out of quarantine. Must. Be. Nice. Anyway, I would definitely check out their gifts section, but like, for yourself, because these super luxe pieces are totally affordable and will make your apartment seem more adult and put together.

Now it is the time to do it. All I can think about with Pottery Barn is that one episode of Friends and the apothecary table. Let me tell you, if you want to buy everything in the sample image to match the catalog, no one would blame you.

Wayfair

Wayfair is my go-to for cheap furniture and a variety of styles. My friend just bought the cutest dining set from them literally last week. All of my balcony furniture is from them because I needed benches and a patio table that had storage but could still fit on my small balcony. They are having sales of up to 85% off, and they have literally every style you could imagine. Even if you have a tiny patio, I definitely recommend upgrading it with their outdoor sale and creating a cute little place to have a drink and get some fresh air.

And everything is on sale at West Elm now, with 40% off furniture, 50% off home decor, 60% off rugs, and 40% off bedding. Now is the perfect time to give your bedroom an upgrade. West Elm is much like Crate & Barrel, where the quality of furniture is great and worth investing in. Also. they have tons of couches, tables, etc. all with storage! Can you tell I really like storage? Say storage again. But like, think how much better you’ll feel being able to shove away all your clutter into convenient hidden spaces!

The Best Online Deals To Shop Right Now While You Pretend To Work

Amidst the chaos of the world right now, we could all use a little distraction. And, for me personally, when life starts to get hard I turn to the healing powers of retail therapy. (Alexa, play “7 Rings” by Ariana Grande.) Since most of us are confined to our homes at this point, we can’t actually shop at physical retail locations, many of which are closed anyway. Fortunately, most companies are also doing their part to encourage you to stay home by either offering free shipping and returns and/or some other online exclusive discount. And trust me, I do realize there’s a lot bigger sh*t to be worrying about right now than updating your spring wardrobe. However, we’re all just trying to get through this tough time and could use a fantasy of better days in new spring clothes to get us through. Besides, I know that realistically all of you who are “working from home” right now are just shopping online anyway.

Quick PSA: Given the uncertainty of the current climate, a lot of these sites did not specify end dates for their promotions, so don’t expect all these deals to necessarily still be happening a week from now.

1. Free People

Not only is Free People currently offering free shipping and returns with no order minimum, you can even get express shipping on app orders $150+. (Not sure how necessary that is considering we still have over a week of quarantine, but I can appreciate the need for immediate gratification.) Oh, AND they’re doing an additional 25% off sale. Thank you Free People for being the best retail therapist ever during these trying times.

Day In Day Out Sweat Set, $128 $74.96

She Fine Embroidered Cami, $58 $37.50

The New Mini Dress, $78

2. Nordstrom

Nordstrom proves once again how much they love their customers, especially during these dark times. Since temporarily closing all of their stores, Nordstrom is currently offering 25% savings site wide, along with free shipping and free returns. They’ve even included beauty! Meaning, you can get products like Giorgio Armani foundation (which has become my personal go-to after hearing it’s the Kardashians’ go-to) for a rare 25% off.

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, $64 $48

Honeydew Intimates All American Pajamas Cinder Leopard, $48 $36

Topshop A-Line Ripped Denim Shorts, $58 $43.50

3. South Moon Under

South Moon Under is here to heal your quarantine woes by offering 15% off $150 or more, plus free shipping on everything, no minimum required. They currently have an incredible selection of trendy spring clothes, swimwear, and accessories. If you’re still holding out hope for your summer trip that you planned, you can prep by getting your vacay wardrobe ready. (But like, don’t count on that getaway.) Or, if you’re living the #wfh life, they have tons of cute loungewear for you as well.

L*Space Serpentina Rebel Tube Bikini Top, $92 & Serpentina Cabana Reversible Bottom, $88

PJ Salvage Rainbow Tie Dye Jogger, $70

ASTR Gaia Sage Dress, $98

4. Sephora

If you’re currently running low on face masks from all the self-care you’ve been doing during quarantine, have no fear: Sephora is now offering free shipping so you can feel less guilty about continuing to indulge. I’d also recommend ordering a hair mask and probably some moisturizers while you’re at it, considering all of our hands are dry and cracked from the incessant hand washing and hand sanitizing.

Farmacy Coconut Gel Sheet Mask, $6

Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, $23

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, $36

5. Nasty Gal

A great place to get some trendy new spring pieces is Nasty Gal, which is currently offering 60% off sitewide for a limited time. Of course, they’re almost always offering some type of deal, but 60% is pretty damn good. Not only do they have some great spring pieces that you’ll be happy to have post-quarantine, they even have super cute loungewear which is essential during this social distancing era.

Striped Sweater and Ruffled Shorts Set, $48 $19.20

Mule Up Strappy Faux Leather Mules, $57 $22.80

Couldn’t Square a Less Textured Mini Dress, $34 $13.60 

6. Neiman Marcus

Another unreal offer happening right now is at Neiman Marcus, where they’re currently offering 25% off women’s, contemporary, and beauty, plus 20% off select items across the site. Again, if you didn’t hear me the first time, discounts on beauty are UNHEARD OF so if there’s anything you need or have always wanted to try, then now is the time.

ALICE + OLIVIA High-Rise Denim Shorts, $195 $146.25

Dior Lip Glow Oil, $34 $25.50

Eberjey Sleeveless Lounge Jumpsuit, $148 $111

7. Singer22

If you’re not familiar with Singer22, then let it be my pleasure to introduce you. They carry all the hottest brands and even show you which pieces have been spotted on all of your favorite celebrities. I mean, who doesn’t want the same sunglasses as Meghan Markle? I’m all here for dressing like an ex-duchess even when no one can see me.

Aviator Nation Bolt Stitch Chevron 7 Crew Sweatshirt, $165

AGOLDE 90s Jeans, $198

Illesteva Leonard Sunglasses, $177

8. Anthropologie

Anthropologie is oh-so-kindly gracing us with 25% off everything on the site right now. They’re also offering free shipping for orders $50+ (so like, one coaster) and free returns. They have some amazing new spring arrivals sure to get you excited for the possibility of one day being able to leave your house again!

Eliza Jumpsuit, $158 $118.50

AGOLDE Thora Sweatshirt $128 $96

Wisteria Poplin Blouse, $198 $146.25

9. Mejuri

Mejuri, the jewelry brand loved by celebrities and influencers, is currently offering free shipping on all orders.

They have a great selection of fine jewelry at reasonable prices, and with free shipping, it’s a no brainer.

Double Curb Chain Necklace, $95

Large Croissant Dome Hoops, $80

Dome Bracelet, $95

10. For Love & Lemons

One of my favorite brands, For Love & Lemons, is doing an additional 30% off sale. Needless to say, I’ll gladly be treating myself to some of their feminine floral pieces to lift my spirits during this hard time. *Adds entire sale section to cart.*

Maui Wrap Top, $135 $95.89

Sloane Shearling Cropped Hoodie, $284 $128.79

Bahama Mini Dress, $266 $158.19

11. Madewell

The go-to retailer for denim and other timeless pieces, Madewell, is doing their part to help us through the quarantine by offering free shipping and returns, plus an extra 40% off sale and 25% off everything else. Meaning, it’s the perfect time to get some spring essentials like a denim jacket or slip-on sneakers.

The Boxy-Crop Jean Jacket, $138 $103.50

Dip-Dye Sweatshirt Mini Dress, $118 $59.10

Sidewalk Slip-On Sneakers, $78 $58.50

12. Quay

Quay is bringing some light to our dark days right now by offering free shipping on all orders plus 25% off sitewide. They have a great selection of trendy sunglasses which you’ll need again…eventually. More importantly, they also sell blue light glasses, and since everyone is working from home and staring at screens non-stop, now is the time to finally get yourself a pair.

JEZABELL Round Sunglasses, $75 $56.25

QUAY X JLO ALL IN, $65 $48.75

QUAYXCHRISSY ALL NIGHTER Cat Eye, $55 $41.25

Shopbop’s Annual Spring Sale Is Here, And These Are The Pieces We Want

Since I am an underpaid peasant, most of my clothes are from Zara. Tbh I have nothing against Zara because I like looking fancy as f*ck in my crisp, cropped blazer over my tea-length flowy skirt, and knowing that I spent less than $100 on the lewk. However, as I enter my 27th year, I want to wean myself off of fast-fashion and invest in higher-quality pieces, AKA shirts that won’t unravel on the gentle cycle of my washing machine. That said, I’m not about to walk into Saks and buy myself a new wardrobe because, like I said, I’m poor. The solution? Shopbop’s bi-annual sale

Now, if you’re not familiar with Shopbop, climb out of the hole you’re living in and join society. Shopbop, which finally has its own storefront on Amazon, carries literally thousands of designers that are perfect for people who want to graduate from Zara but not quite reach Saks. Shopbop is affordable and that is why I love it on any given day; obviously, I love it a little more when everything is up to 25% off (with the code SPRING). If you get overwhelmed easily, allow me to share our favorite things on sale, and make sure to buy before the sale ends on March 8th!

Shoes

Rag & Bone Razor Booties, $495

I am that annoying girl who wears boots in the peak of summer and guess what, idgaf. I have no shame in my game because boots—booties, to be more specific—are stylish all damn year. Rag & Bone sells all sorts of stuff, but the brand is most-loved for its amazing leather boots. My bank account weeps every time I admit that I own three pairs, but there’s a very logical reason for that! The leather is thick af, which makes me feel a little fearless when I wear them because they’re basically indestructible. I will say, though, the white definitely gets dirty, so make sure you get yourself a good leather balm to keep them clean. 

Soludos Lauren Espadrille Sandals, $85

I never would have bought these because they are obviously a tad loud, but I got them in one of my Trunk Club boxes and they are literally my favorite shoes. They are so f*cking cute and they surprisingly go with everything. I’ve worn them with a pale blue fit-and-flare dress, I’ve worn them with denim cut-offs and an oversized white tee, and I’ve worn them with skinny jeans and a cropped denim jacket. Seriously, they’re more versatile than they seem. The only tiny issue is that they are definitely not made for long strolls. They do have a rubber sole, but it’s very thin, so be careful where you wear them. Other than that, they’re perfect.

Schutz Cloe Sandals, $170

Schutz is the underdog of shoe brands because I always forget about it when I’m on the hunt for a specific style, but they always end up having the exact pair I’m looking for. I have a pair of kitten-heeled boots, silver ballet flats, and sky-high, strappy stilettos from Schutz (can you tell I have a shoe addiction?) and the one thing they all have in common is that they are f*cking comfortable. Like the Soludos, they aren’t meant for a walk along the beach, but if you are going to a dressy event and know you’ll be on your feet for most of the night, these babies are the move. 

Tops

Tiger Mist Toronto Top, $75

Tbh, I can’t really say why this top is speaking to me so much because I haven’t worn a crop top since 2012, but there’s something about this hot pink number that I absolutely love. I would probably wear it with an aggressively high-waisted skirt, but I am also loving the way the model is wearing it. Even though it’s obviously a very specific look, you can pack it for a trip and wear it a few different ways. I would, however, make sure it’s the highlight of the outfit because anything that would compete with a top like this wouldn’t be a good look. 

Stateside Poplin Twist Front Shirt, $162

I have a weakness for white button downs. Whether they’re boyfriend style or super crisp, I don’t even care. I want them all—especially this one. I am absolutely loving the menswear vibe and think it would look chic af French tucked into a pair of tailored bootcut jeans. A classic white shirt is timelessly elegant, but I love that this one has a little bit of a style moment with the subtle twist on the front. Obsessed. 

Birds of Paradis Carla Blouse, $218

For the record, I would not classify my style as preppy, but I appreciate very preppy pieces when they’re paired with something a little grungy. For instance, this top, which screams Blair Waldorf circa season one, would look amazing with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a pair of beat up high-tops. Or, of course, you could go the more neutral route and wear it over a pair of skinny jeans and metallic flats. Either way, this top wins.

Accessories

Gorjana Farrah Huggies, $45

I am a big earrings gal and I am proud to admit that I have about a million pairs. It’s a rough estimate. Anyway, as you can guess, I have multiple piercings and I would probably wear these with a few studs or smaller hoops in my other holes. **Cringes** These are a nice, contemporary shift from the classic gold hoop and I’m definitely into it. They aren’t the kind of earrings someone will stop you on the street to ask about, but they can be the finishing touch on any look. Next!

Botkier Cobble Hill Mini Crossbody Bag, $198

If color scares you, fear not because this very chic bag also comes in white with a tortoise shell handle.  Tbh I love the yellow because it’s attention-grabbing, but not too in-your-face because it’s pretty pale. Another thing I love about this bag, aside from the sharp, structured shape, is the fact that the leather is textured, as opposed to smooth. If you’re wondering what the f*ck difference that makes, let me just say, it makes a huge difference because all you have to do for smooth leather to scuff and scratch is, like, breathe near it. Textured leather, however, is tough af and, in my experience, is incapable of scuffs/scratches. 

Krewe Prytania Sunglasses, $275

I lose every pair of sunglasses I come into contact with, so I never spend too much on them. These are definitely a little bit of a splurge, but they’re so stylish and timeless that I will put extra effort into not losing them. Of course, these will look good or horrible depending on your face, but this oversized rounded square shape is generally pretty flattering. The tri-color detailing on the upper rims make them a serious fashion find.

Dresses

FARM Rio Mini Cashew Mini Dress, $155

Yes, this is a dress with a cashew pattern, but it’s so cute that it’s nuts! I hate me, too. Personally, I think all dresses with a snatched waist like this are flattering regardless of your body type. You obviously have to be pro-color if you’re going to buy this dress, but one thing I love about the palette is that it’s pretty muted. This is something I’d wear to dinner on a beach trip with a pair of straw wedges and a big-ass pair of sunglasses.

LOVESHACKFANCY Edie Dress, $295

I don’t know how they do it, but the designers at LSF make extremely flattering and sexy peasant dresses. This is the kind of dress, though, that would only look good in white. If it were in any other color, it would look like a nightgown my grandma would love, but in white, it looks like something a Grecian goddess would show up to brunch wearing. The eyelet details and the high slit in the front make it young-person friendly, and I am excited to wear it since I fully just purchased it as I am writing this article. I’d wear this with a pair of lace-up flat leather sandals or a pair of cork wedges. I seriously cannot get enough of this dress; it better fit me.

Z Supply The Reverie Dress, $60

As you can tell, I like a good oversized piece of clothing, and this dress is no exception. I love that it’s cotton because that means I can get away with wearing it as a cover-up to the beach and to dinner later that same day! It is my personal opinion that everything looks good with heels, but I actually think this dress would look pretty stupid with anything other than a sensible flat. The dress is so casual that trying to dress it up with any type of heel just wouldn’t work.

5 Labor Day Weekend Sales You Don’t Want To Miss

Labor Day Weekend kicks off today, and my wish for you is two-fold: I hope today is not only the first day of your long weekend, but that it’s also pay day. I’m not saying that just because you’re going to need that direct deposit to fund your weekend of binge drinking spiked seltzers, but also because you’re going to need sufficient funds to take advantage of all the incredible Labor Day Weekend sales, most of which have already started. LDW is the last big weekend for summer sales, and there are some good ones you don’t want to miss out on. Here are the best Labor Day Weekend sales to blow your hard-earned paycheck on.

1. Urban Outfitters: Extra 40% Off Sale (No Code Necessary)

The East Order Janie Embroidered Peplum Top ($139 $47.99)

To celebrate this LDW, Urban Outfitters is doing an ADDITIONAL 40% off sale, which is amazing. You can get incredible pieces at even more incredible prices, like the above pair of light wash DL1961 jeans which are normally $199 and are now $65.99. That’s a deal you can’t argue with, especially for a high quality pair of super cute jeans. I mean, you’re basically saving money by buying them.

2. Reformation: Up To 70% Off Sale (No Code Necessary)

Sarah Dress ($178 $115.70)

Julia High Cigarette Jean ($128 $64)

If you’re like me and are obsessed with Reformation, but don’t have the finances to support your obsession, I have good news. Reformation is having their summer sale right now, with their sale assortment all currently up to 70% off. You can definitely snag some great deals and, considering Reformation rarely ever has sales, I’d say go all in. The “add to cart” button just became your new best friend (and your wallet’s greatest enemy).

3. South Moon Under: Additional 50% Off Final Sale (No Code Necessary)

Juniper Blu Open Knit Pullover ($74 $22.48)

Winston White Ruched Front Cutout Mini Dress ($136 $42.48)

Fate by LFD Tie Dye Destroyed Sweater ($88 $27.48)

Show Me Your MuMu Ruthie Ruffle Dress ($154 $49.98)

If you’re a proud member of #BachelorNation, then you know that Show Me Your MuMu is a go-to brand for many of the women of The Bachelor franchise. And, if you’ve ever looked up their stuff, then you know it’s not exactly easy on the wallet. But don’t get discouraged, because right now South Moon Under has a bunch of Show Me Your MuMu pieces on sale with an ADDITIONAL 50% off! Even if you’re not an aspiring #BachelorNation influencer, I guarantee you’ll love their clothes, plus all the other incredible pieces you can purchase at 50% off right now.

4. Anthropologie: Additional 50% Off Sale (No Code Necessary)

Pilcro High-Rise Flare Jeans ($150 $44.98)

Windham Tunic ($78 $19.98)

Demeter Tiered Midi Dress ($160 $49.98)

Marta Puff-Sleeved Blouse ($98 $29.98)

Mackenzie Striped Wide-Leg Pants ($130 $34.98)

Another can’t-miss sale is Anthropologie’s holiday weekend sale, where they’re doing an additional 50% off sale prices. If you’re in need of workwear pieces, then now is definitely the time to shop. Of course, they have really great weekend-worthy pieces as well, and now with the sale you can actually afford this stuff instead of just choosing from what’s left in the sad, picked-over sale room.

5. Forever21: Additional 60% Off Sale (Code: ADD2CART)

Satin Cami & Skirt Set ($38 $13.68)

Buckle Strap Bodycon Dress ($22.90 $8.00)

Jaguar Print Bodysuit ($22.90 $8.24)

Off-the-Shoulder Top ($35 $11.20)

Belted Surplice Cami Romper ($35 $12.60)

For all the “babes on a budget” (aka my fellow broke-ass bitches), brace yourselves, because Forever 21 is doing an ADDITIONAL 60% off sale. Like, you can probably get 1,579 things for a total of $100 right now. Yes, that was an exaggeration and, realistically, you might only get one wear out of each piece. But then again, who the f*ck cares when your top only costs $5 anyway? Plus, in today’s Instagram-obsessed world, you tend to really only wear your clothes a few times, so it honestly works out fine.

Friendly reminder from yours truly that Labor Day Weekend sales are the last big holiday sale we have until Black Friday. That being said, please join me in doing the financially responsible thing of maxing out all my credit cards this weekend and then rebuilding my available balance so I can blow it all again come November.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Has Fall Staples You’ll Want To Stock Up On

If you’re not already aware via every fashion blogger on your Instagram feed, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is officially here. And, per usual, this sale does not disappoint. The whole idea of the sale is to encourage you, me, and the rest of consumerism America to purchase all your new fall pieces now before you actually really need them. And, in order to convince us to do so, they offer great discounts on said pieces. This isn’t like a normal sale, where they discount all the old sh*t—these are new pieces with limited-time prices. Of course, who’s to say you’ll still want these items when fall does finally roll around and there’s a whole new set of covetable fall arrivals? But that’s not the point. 

Given how good the deals are from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, it seems like the financially responsible thing to do here is just go ahead and order these great fall pieces now, before the price shoots back up. But, fair warning, everything is going super fast… it was actually tough to even write this article considering how quickly all the sizes keep selling out. So, if you like something, don’t hesitate. See it? Like it? Want it? You got it…if you order ASAP!

1. Sanctuary City Knit Oversize Blazer

Now: $92.90
After Sale: $139

This oversize blazer, which is also available in plus sizes, is the perfect combo of cool and chic. You could totally wear it to the office with full confidence that you look super professional, then out to happy hour and still look stylish. Depending how strict your office dress code is, you could even just switch out your work blouse top underneath for a casual tank or tee. You could even wear this blazer out and about à la Hailey Baldwin Bieber with some cut-off jean shorts and chunky dad sneakers. Simply put, this blazer can pretty much be worn all year, so there’s legit no reason not to buy it.

2. Something Navy Midi Slip Skirt

Now: $49.90
After Sale: $79

Slip midi skirts are a fall staple, and this floral one by Something Navy is a true fall wardrobe must-have. It also comes in that leopard print every single girl in New York City is wearing this summer. Whatever pattern you choose, you can easily pair this skirt with a cute graphic tee for early fall when it’s still relatively warm out, then transition it for late-fall/winter with a chunky sweater. Not to mention, this too is a piece that works for both the office and the weekend because it’s both stylish and HR-approved.

3. Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt

Now: $99.90
After Sale: $158

Okay, I already know what you’re thinking—that’s a deal for a flannel?! Hear me out, it totally is. That’s because this isn’t just a regular flannel, it’s a Rails flannel. They’re super soft, timeless, and just pretty much all around the sh*t. Plus, unlike your Forever21 flannel, this one will actually last you more than one season. I personally LOVE this navy one with the pink stripes, but they’re all cute so I would highly recommend getting at least one. 

4. Good American Good Curve High Waist Straight Leg Jeans

Now: $123.90
After Sale: $185

Everyone’s fave Kardashian, Khloé, gave us 100 more reasons to call her our favorite with the creation of her denim-focused size-inclusive brand, Good American (check out the plus sizes here). And now, she gave us more reasons to like her with these incredible black high waist straight leg jeans that I NEED for fall. Everyone who has tried Good American denim raves about the fit, so if you haven’t gotten on the bandwagon yet, now’s the time to do so while you can get this pair for more than $60 off.

5. Givenchy 47mm Sunglasses

Now: $216.90
After Sale: $325

I obviously realize that not everyone is currently in the market for designer sunglasses but, if you are, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is the time and place to treat yourself to a pair. They have all kinds of styles from top brands like Fendi, Dior, Tory Burch, Ray-Ban, etc. They even have less pricier styles from Rebecca Minkoff, Kate Spade, and Marc Jacobs. So, even if this gorgeous Givenchy style I’ve selected isn’t exactly the style you personally want, there are a ton more options. 

6. Topshop Topstitched Crop Twill Jacket

Now: $52.90
After Sale: $80

Cropped jackets are the ideal transitional jacket from season to season. This oversize cropped one from Topshop can be just as easily worn now as it could be in a few months from now paired with a fitted turtleneck underneath. Okay, maybe not worn exactly now given we’re in the middle of a heat wave, but then again, with everywhere blasting their AC as a result, you may want to have it with you just in case. Right now it’s only $53, which is an unbeatable price for a jacket you can legit wear all year.

7. Marc Fisher LTD Unique Bootie

Now: $129.90
After Sale: $199.95

This is the perfect simple bootie that will pair with everything in your closet this fall. It actually comes in four different colors, all of which are chic and easy to pair. You obviously have to get the black pair to have as your basic staple bootie for fall and winter, but then you def need the red pair to elevate an otherwise basic outfit and make a statement. Of course, then you also have to have the dark gray pair for when you need something slightly softer than black. And then, you need the pale pink pair because they’re honestly just beautiful. You basically need all four colors, so you might as well just go all in while they’re on sale.

Like I said, if you haven’t already checked out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, then you need to head over to their site right now before your size is sold out. Honestly, that report that’s due to your boss by end-of-day today can wait—this is important. Hopefully, they will understand. The prices go back up on August 5, so hurry hurry hurry!

The Best Cute Winter Accessories That Are On Sale Right Now

It’s officially 2019, which means it’s time for the cliche “new year, new you!” (*Insert energetic fist pump*). In alignment with the new and improved you, one of your goals is probably to be more proactive and less reactive. (Okay, maybe it isn’t, but you should def add it to your list.) For example, you should make the decision to start working on your summer bod NOW rather than wait until the first time you put on a swimsuit come summer. But I’m not gonna be a hypocrite and lecture you about going to the gym. I can, however, use my shopping expertise to help you be proactive rather than reactive when it comes to looking good while staying warm during this season’s inevitable winter storms.

Consider this: in 2018, you would have pushed off buying winter necessities until it was officially -30 degrees and your fingers were at risk of frostbite. You’d then probs try to just pop into your local CVS to quickly grab a pair of gloves, and end up buying some fugly overpriced and poorly-made generic ones. But 2019-you is better than that, and would never have such an experience. The new you is smart and prepared, and is going to take 20 mins out of your day to go order some super cute sale winter accessories right now. Don’t wait until you’re desperate and have to buy those knockoff Burberry ones from a homeless guy with a black trash bag filled with other sh*tty counterfeit goods. Don’t leave yourself desperate; 2019-you is definitely not desperate. You’re confident, prepared, and definitely not using Snapchat maps to casually show up to the same bar as your ex.  ‘Cause, like, you’re not desperate, remember???? REMEMBER. 

1. Scarves

Scarves are my favorite winter accessory, because they require minimal additional effort while providing a maximum additional layer of warmth. You can legit throw them on as you’re running out the door, or easily toss them in your bag if your overly selfish, and frankly terrible at his job, Uber driver won’t turn down the heat. To guarantee extra warmth, go Lenny Kravitz style and get a super-sized one that’s so big you could legit mummify your whole body with it. Seems dramatic, but I’m dramatic, so touché.

Free People Dream Maker Stripe Scarf – $39.95

Urban Outfitters Extra Large Knit Oblong Scarf – $29.99

Free People Dreamland Chunky Knit Cowl Scarf – $39.95

Zara Plaid Scarf – $22.99

2. Hats

Winter hats not only add warmth to your outfit, but they also add style. You can even select your winter head accessory based on the vibe you’re going for that day. Like, go with faux fur earmuffs when you want to look chic as hell, or a cool beanie when you want a more edgy, cool girl look. Stock up on a few different styles of winter head accessories to ensure you have the perfect match for every mood! Just be aware of hat hair. If you’re going on a first date, maybe don’t wear a beanie. There’s simply no sexy way to wrangle and tame your hat hair post-beanie. Go with the earmuffs instead.

Ted Baker Ear Muffs With Bee Embellishment – $43

Tommy Jeans Color Logo Beanie – $20

FP One Big Slouchy Beanie – $19.95

Stitch & Pieces Blush Knitted Headband – $6.50

3. Gloves

Gloves are a winter accessory that I always put off getting until I’m legit in my car trying to drive and can’t feel my fingers. Um, yeah, not safe. Not to mention, not wearing gloves in the blustery cold contributes to dry, cracked hands, which is NEVER cute. In fact, idk if there’s anything more cringeworthy than the mental image of those sad, thirsty hands. Just get several pairs of these sale gloves right now so you can put a pair in every coat pocket. Ya see, gloves help keep your hands moisturized. Moisturized hands are pretty hands. Pretty hands are feminine. Femininity attracts men. Gloves = Husband. See how easy that was???

Faux Leather Cheetah Print Glove – $19.99

ASOS DESIGN Leather Gloves In Check – $12.50

Alice Hannah Knitted Gloves With Faux Fur Cuff – $29

Zara Gloves With Faux Fur Lining – $12.99

Okay, so there you have it—a complete list of cute winter accessories that are all on sale right now, and that you need to buy now. Don’t be a martyr and wait until there’s legit snow falling from the sky to be crying about how cold your hands are. Don’t be that girl. Nobody likes that girl.

Black Friday Deals On Beauty Products You Need To Know About Now

Black Friday (and more importantly, Cyber Monday) deals are almost upon us. Although I hate crowds, and people, and lines, I really, really love Black Friday deals on beauty products. This is why you can shop online, guys. There is nothing better than telling myself I’m not going to spend money and spending $500 at Sephora but getting $850 of products, so really, I made $350. That’s just good business. Since both in stores and online Black Friday shopping is going to be chaos and every woman for herself, it’s best to be prepared for what exactly to hit up first and what to buy. Don’t wait until the last second when every store is the animal world in Mean Girls. Here are the Black Friday deals on beauty products you need to know about now.

You when you got everything you wanted on Black Friday because you planned ahead:

Sephora

Sephora is by far my favorite place to shop for beauty deals already with their point systems and lax return policy. They are trying to further my love for them because they are starting Black Friday deals on beauty products on November 15th this year. The early deals are exclusively for the app, so make sure you have that downloaded if you don’t already. For Beauty Insiders and Rouge members (which should be all of you, if not, do it now), you get early access to all deals on November 21st, with “regular” customers getting deals long after on Thanksgiving Day/Actual Black Friday. If you choose to go to stores (God help you), Sephora will open on Thanksgiving at 6pm with their deals ready to go. The biggest sale options this year seem to be their $15 & Under deals, where you can stock up on expensive value sets all for under $15.

Ulta

Ulta is also going to open for Black Friday at 6pm Thanksgiving Day (those poor, poor workers). Their official Black Friday ad goes live around November 12th, so keep a lookout so you can plot what to buy. Their typical Black Friday layout is pretty awesome, with 50% off brands like Urban Decay and Tarte, and $30 off styling products like Chi. Stock up on expensive makeup palettes and definitely take advantage of their 5-for-$5 specials on face masks and other little products.

Amazon

Amazon already has some of their Black Friday deals out and ready to go. The best part is you can do all your shopping online without missing out on anything. Every day, Amazon will be adding more and more products to their discount list, so check frequently for deals. This is where you should stock up on your have-to-have basics: acne patches, face wash, lotions, that Aztec face mask everyone is obsessed with, etc. Buy in bulk and save the rest of the year.

Bath and Body Works

Bath and Body Works always has amazing Black Friday deals on beauty products. Things sell out quick so you need to be on it. Remember, they have a great return policy, so buy as much as you can with the deals offered and you can return or exchange any scents or products you don’t like later. They always have sales going on, so expect them just to be amplified and all at once on Black Friday/Cyber Monday. The real key to owning the BBW system is to sign up for their emails now, and get coupons for 20% or $30 off to use in conjunction with their deals on Black Friday. The better coupons are online only, so keep that in mind if you decide to venture out to the stores. Their elusive $8 candle sale (normally $24!) is usually around Black Friday, but expect the large candles to be marked down to at least half off. Stock up now on those and take advantage of any get-nine-body-washes-for-the-price-of-three weird deals they have. Do you need 10 matching body washes/lotion/body spray combos? I’m gonna say duh, but you can also divvy them up as last-minute gifts later. Or you can just hoard bath products and never have to buy body wash again. Your call.
