Adam Lippes For Target! PLAID GONE MAD!

Nothing like a new and exciting Target collaboration to get me posting!

The lookbook for the latest collection coming September 27 this fall has been released and it's goooooood. Adam Lippes an American Designer has gone PLAID in this collection with Target.
Yes everything is plaid. And I'm not mad about it.

And its funny because I actually won a wool sweater from the designer back in 2011 worth $400ish... This collection is NOT going to be in that price range, lucky for us! Prices starting at $1.50-$199 with 200 items under $25.

Here are my favorites...but really there's a lot more favorites that just didn't fit into my collage and I'm sure even more after I see everything in person on launch day.

It's a storewide plaid affair folks. From clothing (women, men, kids) to housewares, decor, accessories, shoes, um diapers? Yeah.

You are going to find something you want.

Check out the goodies for yourself --> Plaid Lookbook and let me know in the comments what you are wish listing.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale IS ON. My Fave#NSALE 2015

Oh hey!

Long time, but nothing like a the once yearly Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to get my blogging juices flowing.

Let's just hop to it, being a card holder at Nordy's I was able to shop the pre-sale. And today the sale is open to the public (use your Nordy's card for double points through July 19th) for ALL to enjoy the savings before the fall clothing goes back to regular prices (August 3rd)! I wanted to share my findings with you just so you get a heads up on what to look for, because it does get overwhelming shopping and heaven forbid, you could miss something!

But First, Cookies!

Here are my faves:

Buy All The Clothes!

 Shopping always gives me Happy Thoughts! 
This TopShop tee is giving me early 90s throwbacks from my Jr.High closet. Woo!

 Cowl necks and tank top sweater dresses, a good transition from summer to fall piece.

 THE essential blouse. It's super long and easy to dress up and down.
 I like it over moto leggings.
I'm wearing this if you scroll down to the Dress Up section, it's by LUSH.

Super fun floral Jumper, links below in Dress Up section.

Back up plan. ;)
 BP PJ sets.

Exercise? But Shopping is my cardio. 

Wool hat under $20!
 More hats for ranging around $30!
Kate Spade hats!

Beautiful designer inspired tote in the BP section for $31.90.

Fabulous affordable vegan bags.

Great gift idea from Baublebar!

Home Bound:

beautiful candles for the home or office.

 Kate Spade tumbler under $12. must have agenda planner for $12.90!

 Statement Pillows around $30.
 Pretty covers, sweet dreams.

Designer Bags:

 Rebecca Minkoff #NordyGirl Exclusives. $49!

 Rebecca Minkoff. Because a girl can dream. Seriously though, now's the time to buy one if you've been coveting this style. The larger version rarely goes on sale for less than $220 and this one is $196!

 Sonix cases & Kate Spade iPhone cases. $22-25.90.


 Arcona Cleansing set for $20 or two full size pads for $48 ($70 value).

 Nail Polish heaven!
The Butterlondon set for $45 for 6 of the new Patent High Shine polishes are a steal, they are usually $18 a pop.
 Must haves by Butterlondon for only $28!
Brow basics thanks to Anastasia Beverly Hills. Now $36 ($58 value).

Awesome deal from M.A.C and I love the purple set for fall fun.
Everyone's favorite candles on sale.
Try the smaller set of 3 for only $15.90. They smell awesome.

Playing Dress Up:

ASTR Floral Jumpsuit. $51.90 ($78 orig)
Leith Double Slit Maxi $44.90 (68 orig)
Madison & Berkeley Oversized Turtleneck $31.90 ($48 orig)
BP. Long Texture Cardigan $31.90 ($48 orig)

My faves were the maxi dress and the long cardigan. Everyone needs a black dress and the longer cardigan is going to be another key trend and essential for fall. 

Lush Karly Shift Dress $31.90 ($48 orig)
Dreamers by Debut Cowl Neck Sweater $27.90 ($44 orig)
Leith Crepe Trapeze Dress $38.90 ($59 orig)

My fave was the Karly floral dress, it's available in black and blue florals too. The sweater I wanted to love, but in person it's not that great of quality. It runs very large and an xs on me was still pretty loose at the side slit. The trapeze dress was cute & comfy and available in more colors. 

LUSH Perfect Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic (BP) $27.90 (orig $42)
BLANKNYC Quilted Faux Leather Moto Jacket NOW $63.90 ($98 orig)

I Love love this blouse and the vegan moto jacket. 
I mentioned on Instagram how crazy good the detail and feel of the jacket is compared to the real leather versions that are also on sale right now. This one felt and looked better in my opinion. Really comfortable and the perfect jacket for fall to thrown over a long blouse like on the left or over a t-shirt dress and boots, jeans and a tee, the options are endless. 

I went home with a few of these things I posted, but one of my favorites was this cute
"Breakfast Club" wall art for $21 :D.  

Hope you found my round up useful and fun to look at.
Now have at it!

New Year, New Shoes: Nordstrom Rack #CLEARTHERACK Sale!

Have you shopped the Nordstrom Rack #ClearTheRack event yet? Let me tell you guys, I go EVERY year and this year there seems to be a lot of luck in the air because the shoe section was insanely delicious with scores to be found. The clearance, which is an extra 25% off started Dec 26 and ends Jan.4. So there's plenty of time to make it down to your store and hunt.

This visit was purely shoe shopping, I think I spent a good 2 hours in that dept alone. I actually didn't see a lot in my size AT THE START. BUT, luckily my husband was with me and he actually found all the shoes we ended up buying!

The thing is when you shop these events, don't limit your searching to to your shoe size aisle because there's a GREAT chance that it's already mixed up in another size aisle. Yep. I found dozens in my size that were not in the right place, not too surprising since people tend to leave shoes behind and put them in the first convenient spot.

Here are a few stand outs I saw in various sizes:
Note: I calculated the 25% off in the price below each picture, so it's the final price with discount.

Converse Missoni
 From $24.73 for low tops to $29.98 (Orig $99.97) for high top sneakers. 
These are still at the Nordstrom shoe dept, on sale, but not at the Rack prices!

 Kate Spade New York cork ballet flats for $37.12 (Org.Price $198)

Kate Spade New York x Keds sneakers for $17.23. (Orig. Price $75)

 Kenneth Cole slide-on sneakers
Clearance for $41.23 (Orig. Price $139.95)

 Jeffrey Campbell jelly flats. The no brainer bargain. $9.73! (Orig. Price $29.99)

  This one was a shocker! 
Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse espadrilles. $34.20! (Orig. Price $228)
It killed me that these were not in my size.

 House of Harlow 1960 leather espadrilles.
$21.75 (Orig. Price $145)
Still sold at HoH shopping web page at full price!

 Tory Burch.
Now $40.50 (Orig. Price $135)

 Vera Wang espadrilles.
$26.25. (Orig. Price $175)

Hello Lover!
I saved the BEST SCORE of the day for SJP and her Etta pump!
Fabulous in so many ways.
The price? 95.62. (Orig. Price $425)

Here's my victorious shoe haul:
All four of my fave deisgner shoes for $157.08.
A retail value over $700!

2014 was the year I just couldn't stop buying all the shoes. And as you can see here, I'm already adding more to my collection for 2015! But hey, at least it was all on clearance, so it hardly counts right? No harm, no foul.  Now go get em ladies!

Good luck and happy shopping! -Franci
