Gold Stripe Mini Skirt, Size 8, $99
Cashmere Tee, Medium, Black (not on sale but 30%)

Mini-Bows Sweatshirt, Medium, $79.99 – Easily dressed up or down, I’m tempted to get another as a back-up.

Merino Fair Isle Sweater, Medium, Black/Natural, $79.99
Crinkle Boy Shirt in Black Check, 8, $79.50
Matchstick Cord, 29, Sunwashed Sand, $69.99 (other colors are varied in price)

Italian Silk Secretary Blouse in Tapestry Print, 8, $199.99 – I don’t regret this full-price (with a discount) purchase but lucky you who will get this at sale price and 30% off, with no Final Sale.

Medallion Tie-Silk Skirt, 8, $99.99
Cece Leather Ballet Flats, 7, Black, $89.99 – Another item I’m considering ordering as a back-up. I wear flats so much and black flats are a necessary item in anyone’s closet.

Schoolboy Blazer in English Tweed, 10, $219.99
Ruffled Rhinestone Top, 6, White, $79.99

Silk Gingham Top, 6, $79.99 – Don’t accidentally put this in the wash as the silk will shrink and the Polyester lining will not. Not that I might have done that. Just giving you a little tip.

Collection Embroidered Neon Floral Skirt, 8, $169.99 – I cannot wait for Spring to wear this again. I thought about a Black Cashmere Tee but that seemed a little harsh against the neon bottom. If I figure out a way to wear this for Winter I’ll post the Que Bella.

And finally, this is not on sale but I am SO HAPPY I purchased the Tuxedo Topcoat!
Those are my “no regrets” sale items. Just a few of my favorite things this year.
Happy Shopping!

Husband’s company had their Holiday party Saturday and I had eagerly been waiting to wear the Gold Stripe Mini Skirt. The weather turned bitterly cold on Thursday but I was still determined to wear this skirt so I tweaked the rest of the outfit to accommodate this.

My entire outfit, from head-to-toe, is all J Crew. The sweater is Cashmere Tee in Black. The shoes are the Collection Sloane Velvet Crisscross Pumps I reviewed here. For my jewelry, I am wearing the Salon Necklace and Bracelet from 2009. I originally had the bracelet in Shore Pink and wore it to the Holiday party back in 2009, here. I eventually sold it because I wanted the bracelet and necklace to match. The tights are also J Crew, the Super-Opaque Tights in Black. I usually grab a extra pair at the end of the season when they are on sale.

I had my nails done at Ulta with OPI GelColor in Onyx Black with a GoldenEye accent nail.

I added the Tuxedo Topcoat and my trusty Kate Spade Camel Clutch to finish the look. I am so glad I bought the Topcoat. It was perfect for the evening.

I did keep my hands warm with J Crew Leather Gloves in Holiday Punch, Fall 2011. This year’s version of the glove also has a Holiday Punch color but it’s purple and not Bright Pink like mine.

The entertainment for the night was ZZ Top! They played a mix of everything including some Elvis, Jimmy Hendrix and of course, Legs and Sharped Dressed Man. They look they same, just a bit older when you get up close. 

We finished the night taking some friends to one of my favorite bar for a cocktail before heading home.

Have a Great Evening!

Is everyone shopped out from all the Black Friday deals? Ready for today, Cyber Monday? I have two C/M deals I’m waiting on, as the times for roll-out for what I’m looking for are staggered all day. Crazy but it creates hype. I hope I get what I’m looking for as it’s a gift for The Boy. I’ll share if I get it.

Here are a few more items from the Holiday roll-out that I tried on a week or so ago. First is the Gold Stripe Mini Skirt. The first two images are a Size 8 and it ran a little big, surprisingly. I always take an 8 in the Mini skirt but this ran big on me around the waist and hips. I think it’s the pleats, (Not an Anchorman reference…haha.)

My VPS paired it with the Tippi Sweater in Vintage Cabernet and the Stretch Perfect Shirt in White. I love the work-appropriateness of this outfit. Add black tights and tall boots and it’s perfect.

These next two images are the size 6 of the skirt and I felt much better in it. My VPS had another outfit for this making it super casual with the Hugo Guinness Linen Tee and the Schoolboy Blazer in Black. I’d pair this outfit with some booties instead of tall boots.

The Minnie Pant in Medallion Print, size 8, felt very comfortable on. This was a little saggy in the front but just fit in the waist so maybe an 8 Petite would be the best fit. I ended up passing on these as I didn’t feel like I would wear them enough with such a bold/bright bottom.

Lastly, is the Tweed Flare Dress, size 6, which just fit through the chest and waist. I think I’d try sizing to an 8 to see if the fit was just a touch looser on top. Or just Spanx it. I do like the fit and flare of this dress and added it to my Wishlist.

I did purchase the skirt so look for it in some upcoming Que Bellas! 
Happy shopping today!
