AJ Wears :: A Floral Dress

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! We spent our time down in Texas with my family, and I can tell you right now - I did not eat enough TexMex while I was there. Not even close.

I hopped back onto the Rent the Runway Unlimited wagon this month when I needed a few dresses for some parties/galas/etc, and since I didn't get a chance to wear this one to the event for which it was intended it came to Texas with me. Thanks to the super stretch scuba material, I couldn't even tell if I'd gained any turkey weight.


Dress, Erin Erin Fetherston (rent it // buy it - I'm wearing the 8)
Heels, ShoeDazzle or JustFab or something.
Bag, Louis Vuitton.

AJ Wears :: A Velvet Bomber

I've been slow to adopt the bomber trend. I got a floral one last year that never stuck with me, so I was slow to try again. But ever so often, I go insane and forget everything I know, so HERE WE ARE. Better yet, it's practically a trend salad: bomber meets velvet? How brave! How 90's! And thankfully...how cute. 

Bomber, JustFab.
Tee, Banana Republic (similar from Asos).
Jeans, Old Navy (exact).
Flats, Gucci (similar from Steven at Shopbop).
Bag, Alexander Wang (similar from JCP!).

And now that I've decided the bomber is..ahem...BOMB, here are a few more I'm crushing on:

All from Shopbop! Don't forget - you can take up to 25% off with GOBIG16.

Sometimes I Shop :: Shopbop's On Sale!

First things first: There is no such thing as an "Early Black Friday Sale." That's just a sale, people. Black Friday didn't come early (I'm looking at you, Macy's), you're just pushing the season.

Second: Stores open on Thanksgiving. Can we stop?

Third: Is Kohl's still open 24/7 during Christmas hours? I can't imagine who needs a crockpot and socks at 2 a.m.

ANYWAY, Grinch aside, I do most of my shopping online. Shopbop has graced us with yet ANOTHER Buy More, Save More sale this week and they're not attempting to pass it off as a Black Friday sale. In fact...you can shop it right now. So fill up on turkey and wine, then treat yourself to a little tipsy purchase. Here are some of my favorites right now:

1. Kendall & Kylie Booties: This is literally a no-brainer. These sleek booties are way cooler than I am (v. model off duty!), and K&K's collection is pretty affordable. PS - they come in grey suede too!

2. Rebecca Minkoff Moto Bag: Love the slouchiness of this cool take on the bucket bag.

3. Gift Boutique Luggage Tags: Perfect for gifts! Also perfect for me, who is going on vacation in December. Of course, these are super cheap so they only qualify once you've spent $200 - but they're a good add-on if you're trying to get there!

4. Stuart Weitzman Mules: Y'all know I'm on a mule kick and these are GORGEOUS. UGH.

5. Sincerely Jules Camille Trench: I've been eying this coat for over a year...might be time to pull the trigger! I love the darker camel color.

6. Karen Walker Crossbody: I need a black crossbody. The tortoise shell detail on this one is too cool.
