AJ Wears :: Red Leather Leggings + Giveaway!

Happy Thanksgiving, all! On my last day of work before a glorious four day weekend, I wore these unbelievably stretchy and comfy leggings from Our World Boutique. And wouldn't you know it, I'm wearing them again today? They're high waisted and stretch enough to accommodate for a turkey baby, so I just decided to double up. But here's the REALLY good news. I love these leggings (obvs) and will be searching for the black version immediately after I finish this post, so I'm giving you guys a chance to win gift cards from Our World Boutique for Black Friday! They're actually doing it up for this weekend:

A: Everything is 30% off today through Cyber Monday. YESSSSS. Discount code is CYBER30.
B: Every order over $30 gets this adorable tassel necklace for free! 
C: Every day they'll have a new Cyber Steal. It's like a doorbuster, new one every day, AND you get to combine that deal with the 30% off. Major O-M-G.
D: Make sure you check out the Cyber Sale tab for all the deals.
E: I'm teaming up with some other OWB enthusiasts to give away three gift cards: $50, $75 and $100!

Broke Girl's Guide :: My Favorite Designer Sale

If you've been thinking about making the plunge into the world of handbags, I wanted to alert you to one of my favorite sales starts this morning. Shopbop is having their big sale where the more you spend, the more you get off. Here's how it works: Spend $250 or more, get 15% off. $500, 20% off. And $1000+ gets you 25% off whatever you want - no exclusions. I'm giving you the heads up because last year, I wanted to buy two bags and get the full 25%, but one of the ones I wanted sold out. I ended up adding a ring to my order to get the full 25%

THIS is the sale that I used to buy my Rocco, and it's a really great way to snag something for a great price.

I'm also including a few things I can personally recommend as "extras" in case you want to add something to your cart to bump your savings to the next level. For instance, the Rocco at 20% off is $740, but if you added the ring below that bumps the total to over $1000 and you'll get the 25% off, making the total $750. Essentially, you get the bag for cheaper and a ring for $10 more. It's like I'm a shopping magician! So with all of that...what are you eyeing from the sale? It starts today and runs through December 1st!

Jacquie Aiche Letter Ring | Karen Walker Super Duper | Kate Spade Bow Gloves

This post is a collaboration with Shopbop, which is one of my favorite online shops, so I feel comfortable recommending them. I picked all of this stuff out though because I'm only comfortable recommending things I would own or buy. How's that for a disclaimer?

AJ Wears :: A Purple Blouse

Sometimes I experience the most déjà vu feelings while blogging. While I'm constantly impressed by the girls (with seemingly endless closets) who manage to look different every day, I sometimes discover I've unintentionally worn the exact same thing, only different. As I was editing today's photos, I had a sudden fear that I'd already worn this outfit on the blog before.

Well, I have. Kind of. Different shirt, different shoes, but exactly the same concept. I would say, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it..." but perhaps it's time to come up with a few more outfit combinations.

Blouse, Old Navy (similar from Nordstrom).
Jacket, Treasure & Bond (similar at Lulu's).
Jeans, Hudson (exact).
Necklace, The Limited (similar at ASOS).
Heels, Kate Spade via @cleanupcloset (similar from DSW).
Bag, Alexander Wang.
