SHOPPING | Memorial Day Weekend Sales

memorialday_weekend_shopping_sales_roundup_nordstromFull outfit post here.

It’s Memorial Day weekend, and although I’ll be hibernating getting shit done that doesn’t mean you have to take after me. If I were you, I’d be enjoying this long weekend with cookouts, pool time, friends and family, and maybe some online shopping. (Okay you caught me, these sales are too good to ignore.)

Amazon: 20% off with code FUN20SUN

Anthropologie: 20% off all sale items with code GONEFISHING. This top and these heels are currently in my cart.

ASOS: 20% off everything with code LONGWEEKEND. Their selection is insane.

Banana Republic: 40% off your order with code BRSUMMER. I’ve actually never been a bigger fan of BR, like talk about this tunic, and these lace-up sandals..

BaubleBar: Up to 30% off with code MEMORIAL30. This could get dangerous.

Club Monaco: Extra 30% off all sale and clearance with code MEMORIALDAY

GAP: 40% off all regular price items with code SUMMER. They’re my favorite place to stock up on shorts!

J.Crew: 25% off sitewide with code SUMMERLOVE. A printed, fun romper?! Yes please!

Nasty Gal: Extra 40% off with code HOTSTUFF, including these classic black Schutz pumps!

Old Navy: Everything on sale up to 50% off, plus 25% off your order, no code needed. This tee would be perfect for summer barbecues, and dying for this casual maxi dress!

Rebecca Minkoff: Up to 50% sale items. This skirt is super cute, and this tote is calling my name this summer.

Urban Outfitters: Long weekend sale, in stores and online. These slides look perfect for the beach.

And last but not least, Nordstrom is having their Half-Yearly Sale. Save up to 40%.. But hurry, things are flying. (You can see my favorites below)Shopbar

Friday Five | 5.22.15

Blog_5.22.15You guys, Memorial Day weekend is finally here. That means a lot of the great outdoors, cookouts, and family time! But can’t it mean a little fashion and culture too? We think so. Here’s your weekly dose..

1. Want Kim K’s Style For Under $100? – For all of us who wish we could have Kim Kardashian’s wardrobe at “regular person” prices (and sizes), Naked Wardrobe is the answer. The new retailer features lots of similar styles that the curvy star regularly wears. Think body suits and hip hugging pencil skirts. Even the models looks like the Kardashian girls!

2. What To Buy From J.Crew’s CFDA Collab: – If you watched this season of Fashion Fund- the CFDA/Vogue’s docu-series for the race to the grand prize- you’ll recognize the names on this list. J. Crew has collaborated with the designers in a beautiful collection inspired by their respective aesthetics which goes on sale June 3rd.

3. Looking At Appalachia Anew – This New York Times photo essay personifies what life is really like in the Appalachian Mountains whose ranges stretch from Newfoundland providence in Canada to northern Alabama. The photos give a glimpse of a world not traditionally seen in typical Appalachian coverage.

4. Skin Advice From Cara Delvigne’s Estetician – Super awesome advice for the skin care novices among us. Cara Delevigne’s esthetician dishes her tips to the Man Repeller.

5. What Happens To TV Costumes? – With the end of Mad Men last Sunday, we wonder, “What happens to the TV costumes?” Fashionista has the answer.

 This time of the year is a magical one here at SCAD. Everyone’s energy is running high in anticipation of this year’s SCAD Fashion Show showcasing senior collections, with big name visitors from the fashion industry (just to name a few this year it was Vivienne Westwood and Christian Siriano), and runway coaching by Miss J Alexander.. It’s a pretty big deal! This year was my first year getting to watch it firsthand (the past two years I’ve had to watch it through live-stream), and boy was it incredible! I heard a classmate relate it to something such as when Florida plays Georgia in a football game, when you’re in the crowd you just feel such an immense amount of pride for those surrounding you. And that I did, I just can’t believe that this much creativity surrounds me here at SCAD.

This year I really took notice to the gorgeous textiles, whether it be through screen printing, cutouts, or even the amazing fiber art that was seen in the show. There was beautifully planned layers that flowed across the runway, delicate lace that accented the models dramatic makeup, and even dramatic menswear pieces. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to finally witness this in person, and I’m eagerly already counting down the days until next year’s SCAD Fashion Show to see some of my friends hopefully even make it into the show. You can see more photos from the fashion show on The Manor or WWD.

Ps- Be sure to check out André Leon Talley’s curated show of Vivienne Westwood at the SCAD Museum of Art, it’s incredible!

_MG_4894 As I’m typing this it’s about 2AM, and I’ve just wrapped a long extensive photoshoot in studio. I’m tired, a little bit hangry, and just all around ready to go to bed (for 8+ hours this time). But do you know what makes it better? Between running errands, walking to class, and then being on my feet the whole photoshoot, my feet don’t hurt currently! That’s a new one for me, because usually finals indicate sore everything. These ballet flats by Tieks have seriously changed my life in the best way possible. That may sound a little cliche to you, but to find a shoe that is comfortable, looks cute, can easily fold up in your purse for easy travel.. Boy I could go on and on- but moral of the story is that I’ve finally found a pair that does all of those things! I can’t wait to wear these babies out, probably order them in about five more colors (oh yeah, and they come in any color imaginable!), and talk about them probably some more..

Currently Coveting | The Perfect Gift For The Graduate In Your Life

CC_CurrentlyCoveting_graduation_gifts_nordstrom_waitingonmartha HOORAY is right, some of the friends and family around me are graduating! Doesn’t it feel so weird once this starts happening? I am so proud of each one of them, and was hunting for that perfect gift for their hectic transition into the grown up world. (Yuck..) I thought this HOORAY banner was so cute, and appropriate of course. If you’re not sure what to get, always go for some type of stationary or desk accessories, I feel as though it’s extremely fitting and 99.9% of new graduates are going to buy these things anyway. And if his or her’s new job requires looking nice, what’s better than tie clips, a sleek matte black watch, or Manolo pumps?!
