I am not big into horoscopes but I read mine last week (as my birthday was approaching) and learned that a lunar eclipse on October 8 would wreak havoc on my life. And so it did, as my 5-year-old got strep throat, my husband got food poisoning, our go-to babysitter got sick, and thus a fun birthday weekend getaway got cancelled. Not the end of the world, and everyone is fine now, but it was unfortunate! Thankfully, now the stars appear to have realigned, as I awoke this morning to discover. . . Shopbop's 25% off Friends & Family sale! To start, I'd like some new slip-on sneakers, because they're just about the most comfortable shoes ever and a pair in grey, this season's hue, is in order. Also tempting: these perfect (and nicely priced!) Pour La Victoire pointy-toe ankle boots, this Clare V. striped clutch, these gorgeous crystal-studded Ca & Lou earrings, this about-to-sell-out Rodebjer faux fur coat, this forever-chic Alice + Olivia tuxedo blazer, this Opening Ceremony boxy jacket, and this statement LBD by Nanette Lepore (perhaps for a festive rescheduled birthday celebration?).
