Fab Under $50 featuring Zara

Hey my loves!

Next week Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, Black Friday, and I have some amazing fashion and beauty deals for you all this year. This is the beginning of the holiday shopping season. While some people shop all year round for the holidays, majority of the people, including myself, wait until after Thanksgiving to really get things going.

Here are a few tips before you head out to your favorite shops for your favorite deals.

  1. Make a list! You have to be prepared. This is not the time to go and browse the stores casually. You need to have a plan. You will no exactly what stores to go to and what items you will purchase from the stores. So grab those newspaper circulars or print them out to create your list. You can also prioritize and figure out which stores you will attend first  and what items you will try to grab as well.
  2.  Shop with a friend. Usually I like to shop alone but shopping with a friend during this time is a necessity. You guys can split up and divide and conquer! Ok that may be a little extreme, but you can each pick up the items you need in half of the time. Also you can wait on line in shifts.
  3. Wear comfortable clothing. I would suggest something that you can maneuver in easily, so layers are perfect. Comfortable jeans and knit leggings are essentials. I would go with leggings and some flat riding boots with zippers that will be easy to take off if I need to. Also wear a cross body bag to avoid holding your purse in your hand or on your arm. Lastly oversized cardigans, scarves and anorak jackets are great too. You can tie the jacket around your waist if you get a little warm and the cardigan is great for an additional layer of warmth.
  4. Be assertive, yet friendly. You want to be pleasant to the workers because this is an extremely stressful time and you want them to be as helpful as possible. You have to be assertive when it comes to the other customers. Do not get in to a fight, but if there is a deal that is a must have go for it!
  5. Set reasonable expectations for yourself. You may have 15 items on your list that you want to purchase, but you not be able to get those items, so be realistic on what you can actually accomplish, and also remember, what you do not get on Black Friday there is always Cyber Monday.
So, whether you are shopping on line, or standing in line at your favorite store to get the best deals we have something for you so check it out!

During these economic times, I know how hard it is to try to save when you see that cute dress in the window. When you get inside the store and find out the price you have a dilemma because you are not sure if you should purchase the item or save the money for something that is more important than a dress– that you won’t wear for months, or that you’ll wear just once. Well the Fab Under $50 section will be ,ore consistent and showcase everything from shoes, to accessories, to handbags. The best part about this  feature is that you won’t go broke from doing your favorite past time. So for this installment of FAb Under $50 I found a great knit skirt for the winter, leopard pumps, feminine bow gloves, tortoise print shades, and much more.

Grey Marl Quote Mesh Back Sweat Top By Tee And Cake, 30 GBP
Women’s Shirred V-neck Cardigan, $34
JACK BB DAKOTA Shak Womens Jacket, $50
Fairisle Tube Skirt, 25 GBP
Leopard Print Pumps, $26
Tapestry Oxford Flats, $28
ASOS | ASOS Portfolio Envelope Clutch at ASOS, $34
Betsey Johnson Betsey’s Dollhouse Pearl Drop Bow Heart Earrings at…, $36
Short Bow Glove – Gloves – COLD WEATHER – Jessica Simpson Collection, $25
Michiko Koshino Bright Contrast Plastic Aviator, $43

I love the sweat shirt, “I Like To Be Surrounded By Splendid Things” throw it on with some skinny jeans and a nice pump for a night on the town with the girls or throw on a pair of riding boots for a casual stroll through the city, either way, the sweat shirt will speak volumes.

Until next time….
