pre-feast presents

Net-a-Porter is giving us a Christmas present before Thanksgiving with its just-launched sale, featuring all the fall pieces you could want at up to half off. Take for instance, these Mansur Gavriel mules and this Simon Miller bag, both pictured above. Other desirables: this vacation-ready Zimmermann dress, these Stella McCartney wide leg jeans, this Ulla Johnson one-shoulder blouse, this Cornelia Webb pearl-studded choker and this Ganni open-back sweater. Check it all out for yourself here.

party pants

While I am not quite ready to hang up the garland and steep myself in egg nog, I could easily slip into these festive, holiday party-worthy sequin trousers (they also come in black.) I love that they're flashy and unexpected--i.e. way more interesting than a predictable LBD. Other dressy pants to consider include these by Jenni Kayne, Rag & Bone, Zara, and Emilio Pucci.

cozy chic

Like everybody else these days, my best friend is all about "hygge," the Danish buzzword synonymous with coziness, comfort and contentment. (P.S. It's pronounced hoo-guh, and derives from a sixteenth-century Norwegian term, hugga, meaning “to comfort” or “to console,” which is related to the English word “hug.”) Now, with this super soft and perfectly fluffy Madewell popover, I'm with her on the hygge bandwagon!

moda mia

I haven't even ordered the turkey yet but already Thanksgiving sales are on fire! Take for instance Moda Operandi's Friend and Family Half Off Sale, featuring the tempting likes of this Lisa Marie Fernandez dress, above, perfect for warm weather getaways, these festive Charlotte Olympia sandals, this stand out Isa Arfen blouse, this party-ready Ulla Johnson dress, and this Warm floral blouse. Check it all out here.

down under

When I was in New York last week, I did something I rarely do: I went underwear and bra shopping. This happened after trying on clothes at a store with a friend, who was wearing a super sexy but everyday-worthy bra; meanwhile, mine was basic and utilitarian (read: anything but sexy). So I went and conquered, and now I want even more options! (I honestly feel a little chicer with my new underpinnings, which is not a bad thing, I have to say.)  I'm lusting after these lovelies from Cosabella, Hanky Panky, Free People, Anine Bing, and Honeydew.

new york news

I was in New York City this week to see old friends and gleaned some good finds you might want to know about. For starters, a friend wore these Anne Sisteron rose gold and diamond huggies to drinks at Casa Lever (so chic!) the other night, and I mistook them for two separate earrings rather than one. So cute, right? She also wore these incredibly flattering jeans and this fun blouse. Another friend's skin looked unusually (amazingly) luminous, and she chalked it up to Le Metier de Beaute Vital ET Recovery Boost. I made an immediate beeline to Bergdorf's and picked up a bottle for myself. At Sushi Seki another night, I spotted a woman wearing this Asos statement top and snapped it up on my phone in between bites of a spicy tuna roll. Other new-to-me restaurants I checked out: Le Charlot (best moules frites I've had in a while), Majorelle (for drinks in a posh setting), and Scalinatella (delectable grilled carciofi!). I 💙 NY!

jump start

This super cute one-shoulder J. Crew jumpsuit is going to be my last-minute, no-fail solution to holiday partying. P.S. It's 25% off, along with other fun new pieces such as this, this and this till tomorrow!

jeans and things

If you need to plug some fall wardrobe gaps, now's the time, as Nordstrom is offering deep discounts on just-out cold-weather styles, including all the jeans you could ever want. I'm in the market for light-wash straight-leg denim, similar to above, and found these by Hudson, Mother, and Madewell on sale. I also could use this cute tweed Missoni jacket, these wide-leg Rebecca Taylor khakis, this throw-over-everything parka by The Great, and these classic Stan Smith Adidas sneaks.  Shop the sale through 11/12 here.
