Wrap It Up

It has been super long since my lazy ass has posted anything and I wish I was on the prowl for something marginally more exciting that a cozy black scarf. But last night when was I bundling up for a evening out I realized my current black scarf was lame and have requested one for Christmas. But for those of you with a "give me a christmas list" types in your know that you must be explicit with what you want or you will end up with something sketchy that you have to fake fondness for when you open it. So, my apologies for posting the fruits of my black scarf search labor, but these are the ones that I am hoping make their way under the tree for me.

This mohair muffler scarf doesn't scream "will keep your uber warm when its 20 degrees out", but it looks super soft and might be an excuse to get two. Check it out at J. Crew (enter the code Holiday at checkout for an extra 20% off through Monday) for $29.50.

I like this ruffled scarf at the gap for $29.50. The ruffles are fun and can sass up a plain jane ensemble.

Forever 21 never disappoints with inexpensive basics. They carry a basic knit scarf in black for only $9.80.

A little more expensive than these others, but Banana Republic has a cozy-looking cable knit scarf that's worth a look for $41.30.

I heart cashmere. This one is a keeper at Nordstrom, but isn't recession-friendly at $78.00.

Illusion of Two Pieces

I'm not sure if this is a tricky look when it comes to fit, but damn I love these looks on models...which means I have yet to test drive one myself yet. This Ciarah dress by Theory is on sale at shopbop for $147.50 and amazingly they still have a good range of sizes. An d, I really think this is a look I could rock for more than a season, which is something I am trying to focus on this season in terms of expanding the ol wardrobe.

Greatest Tee Ever

The Gap is rolling these days for me. I am loving lots of stuff the chain has to offer and this tee is the softest, most comfy, flattering t-shirt ever! It hits and fits just right and comes in a bunch of colors. I literally had to put two back down and settled on the orange and grey options. And if stripes aren't your thing, they have solids too. I have found they are perfect with jeans and can work under blazers and sweaters for work. Don't take my word for it...check them out yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Bananas For A Dress Sale

40 % off is nothing to sneeze at...and Banana Republic is offering up that discount on their dresses. I got lucky when I dropped off some old coats and sweaters for Goodwill (BR is taking these through tomorrow, so if you have time go through your closets) and I spotted a dress that had caught my eye weeks ago. Online they didn't have my size, but in the store I got lucky. So here's hoping you might get lucky too.

Pick from Piperlime Peeps

You have a few more days to take advantage of Piperlime's 20% off sale and its not just the lame summer stuff either. You can truly find some great stuff for the fall and into the winter. Here are two of my faves...just depends on how badly our crappy economy is hitting your personally as to which one you might want to scoop up for yourself.

Not So Limited

It had been awhile since I'd been into The Limited and even longer since I'd purchased something from them. I used to work in pretty close proximity to one and a gal pal and I would lunch there and grab some good deals. But I had sorta forgot about them, in part because they didn't allow me the option of online shopping. Well that's history, because The Limited can help you pass your lunch hour from the comfort of your cubicle now. In addition to a cute sweater that I snagged last month, here are a few items that caught my eye.

Two Button Topper (this is my go-to sweater right now) - $59.50

Ruffle Top - $39.50
Shirtdress - $59.99

Peacoat - $128.00
