While the guys are watching football, let’s do a little Sunday Shopping at Kate Spade?

I am in desperate need of some good denim trousers. I had a pair from the GAP but I wore them so much they have faded. I like having an option of a dark denim to wear instead of slacks.

That Fabled Forest Shift Dress is THE questionable item from Kate I’ve seen in a long time. I can’t even…Ugh. But watch, I’ll see it IRL and fall in love! 😉

The Read My Lips Coffee mug is one of my favorites. There’s also a Bow and Macaroons to choose from as well. Shop the rest of my picks on my Pinterest Board!

I’m actually multi-tasking by shopping AND watching football. I have a ve$ted interest since I’m in a Fantasy Football league. I came in Last Place last season. I am making sure that does NOT happen again! LOL! Here’s my Team Name and Logo, created by me with a razor, some construction paper and a little Photoshop. I’m soooo creative!

Have a Great Sunday!

No sale at Nordstrom but from now until Sunday, September 20, you can get Triple Points when you use your Nordstrom Credit or Debit Card. Nordstom has so many great items and carry several of my favorite designers and brands – Madewell, Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Alex & Ani. I thought I’d put together a little list of the current items I’m stalking. It doesn’t hurt that I have some Rewards to use right now either.

I only have flat boots right now so a heeled boot like the Sam Edelman Regina in this pretty gray color would be nice to add to my closet. How gorgeous is the color on that Sole Society Marlow bag? I’ve always loved the burgundy shade. It is one of my other favorite colors for Fall.

We had lots of murky rainy weather last Winter and though I had an umbrella this Kate Spade one would surely brighten the yuckiest of days. Jewelry would do that too, right? I don’t have any gold Alex & Ani pieces and am really liking the Compass and the Beaded Bangle.

What about you? Anything you are stalking at Nordstrom right now?

I haven’t received the latest J Crew catalog in months so I was surprised to find the October catalog in my mailbox this week. The first image that I immediately wanted to buy and duplicate was the cover, similar to the one below with the Saint James Slouchy Tee and Campbell Blazer in Tweed.

So the Vail Parka came out at the Factory this week but J Crew also brought out more colors in the Chateau Parka for this season. I am loving that Heather Mustard color which reminds me of the Dark Ochre from seasons ago.

I want to find Silk tops over Poly and I think the Silk Blouse in Cobalt Leopard will fit nicely into my Fall wardrobe. It like that it is similar in color to the Midnight Floral print (Jumpsuit).

The other item I immediately loved from the Style Guide was the Patio Pant with Leather Tux Stripe in Bi-Stretch Wool. I stalked those all day on the site yesterday and then ended up ordering the Patio Pant in Bi-Stretch Wool in Blue Stone. I have no idea why I changed my mind. Probably because of the leather tux stripe and how expensive it would be to have them dry-cleaned since they have that leather on it.

Lastly, the Boy Shirt in Dawson Plaid is one I’m hoping to see IRL before buying. I think I like the colors but want to make sure. The colors on the model image are light while the stock image shows it more saturated. I want it lighter than the stock image.

Take 25% off your purchase on most items with code SHOPNOW, through Sunday, September 20. The Patio Pants are excluded which is a huge bummer for me. All the blazers are included in the promo except the Rhodes Blazer which I what I would be ordering. Of course third party like Saint James and Thomas Mason are excluded too.

What have you added to your Wishlist from this roll-out?

Madewell has a new promotion today. Using code WINWIN will get you 20% off $100 or 30% off $200, both in-stores and online. Such a great deal to gather the rest of your Fall items.

My favorite item from Madewell right now is the Cadet Blazer. I love the cut, the style, the color. I was hoping to see this in store but it’s an “online only” item. This is in my cart right now deciding on which item below will be the ride-along to get the 30% off. I have the Courier Shirt in Mathius Plaid and would love to try the Silk Courier Shirt in Camouflage Green.

I picked several shirts in plaid, gravitating towards them because of the color schemes. I can’t decide between the Slim Boyshirt in Lawton Plaid or the Penfield® Jansen Plaid Shirt.

I’m always looking for easy dresses to throw on for the day. Especially when they can be dressed down with a chunky cardigan and tall boots, like my Frye Shirley Boots. I think the Moviehouse Shirtdress or the Short-Sleeve Shirtdress in Masmodil Plaid. That one would satisfy both my plaid craving and casual dress need.
I have just as many picks for shoes and accessories from Madewell too! I have several layered necklaces I purchased last year that I love to wear and I’d love to add the Knotshine Necklace to that collection. The Stargraph Cuff Bracelet is similar to one I already have, the Studded Rail Cuff. Though I have pierced ears, I rarely wear earrings any more; maybe once a year. But I like the look of the Crossbar Earrings. They don’t look very big. I hope I can see them in store to make sure.
I know that I need the Octavia Sandal in Dark Cabernet in my life. But the 4-inch heel height is over my personal limit. I really like the Billie Boot in Suede and would love to see it in the Leopard Calf-Hair of the Nico Boot.
How about you? What are you going to shop for using the WINWIN promo?

J Crew Factory had new arrivals this week. I browsed the Early Access but didn’t make a purchase this time around. The beloved Elephant Parade Tee is back along with the Mini Dachshund Tee and Sweater. I have worn my retail Elephant Tee a lot so I may get this one as a back-up.

I like the Dark Olive color of the Wool Skimmer Pant. I might consider pairing it with the Floral Sweatshirt, also a dupe of it’s retail sister, the Dutch Floral Sweatshirt.

I am very surprised to see the popular Chateau Parka from last year, the Vail Parka for Factory. Everyone had that coat! I didn’t because I didn’t need it. I wasn’t a fan of the furry hood either. I’m sure it was cozy for those who had it, as it looked warm. There’s also a new Puffer Vest in Plaid. I’m all good on Puffer Vests this year though.

Probably the only thing I’m considering from this roll-out is the Zebra Sweater. I have a black gingham shirt that would layer nicely under this sweater.

Don’t forget to use code EXTRA20 for 20% off your purchase online. That promo is good through September 21.
