If I lived in London I think I would live at Harrods. In the two times I went there I could have spent pretty much all day in that store (maybe even a week). Like they say in the Parent Trap, you could get lost in there. I was checking out their website the other day and came across a ton of great pieces by Stella McCartney and Alexander McQueen, two of my favorite designers.  Luckily I own one piece by each of them (well, McQ by Alexander McQueen), but would love to add any of these to my wardrobe. What are you craving at the moment?

Stella McCartney: I am just loving all the neutral colors and animal prints.  Any of this could fit seamlessly into my wardrobe. DYING over the shoes, aren't they perfection!?

Alexander McQueen: These pieces are mostly my "dream life" wardrobe. If I had unlimited money and went to tons of parties, this is what I would wear.

* Disclosure: This is a PR collaboration, I was paid for the post, but all opinions are my own.
Less than a week until Thanksgiving! But there are 2 other things to be excited about for next week. Number 1 - a short work week! YAY! Number 2, my favorite, getting our Christmas Tree on Friday!  But let's not get ahead of ourselves.  First: the weekend! This weekend I'll be having date night with Christine and Lydia thanks to Marshalls Project Fab! Then Sunday I will relax and hang out with the family at Grandma's.

This week I FINALLY got to debut my crazy velvet Balenciaga pants I got for $30 (I know!) at Roundabout Resale in Westport.  I always find the best pieces there.  Case in point: my Lanvin heels from Thursday. Always get so many compliments on them and I paid a measly $80. Okay...that is technically a lot, but not compared to the $900 price tag. My outfits this week are also full of Marshalls and TJ Maxx finds.  As you can see I never pay full price for fabulous!

What a nice, weird week! I worked on Monday/Tuesday and had Wednesday off to go to the dentist. So, of course, I did some shopping and spent way too much money. Then Thursday it was back to the office before having another day off today (we get 2 Fridays off a month.)  The only thing that could have been better was the weather, yesterday was gross and today is supposed to be similar.  But I have fun plans - lunch out with old coworkers and a photoshoot with Lydia (assuming the rain doesn't ruin everything.)

The rain has finally subsided: HUZZAH! Except now I bet I jinxed it, oh well...  Anyway today I thought I would look back at some pieces I've worn in a myriad of ways.  This is the third installment of this feature: Part 1 & Part 2

Ralph Lauren Striped Sweater - I wear this sweater quite often, but it is not something that gets photographed a lot.  Not sure why because it's one of my favorite things.  It's usually a weekend piece and what I throw on when I have no idea what to wear. I bought it at good will for $8 and it's too big so it has a nice slouchy feel.

Purple Printed Skirt - My mom made this skirt for me 2 years ago with fabric we bought at Mood after my photoshoot with The Outnet.  I wear it a lot but it is one of those pieces that I always wear with the same things because they go so perfectly together.

McQ Alexander McQueen Dress - Another oldie, but goodie.  My mom bought me this from Century 21 for my birthday 2 years ago.  It is from the last collection McQueen did so it has a special place in my wardrobe. I've only shown Summery stylings here, but I wear it through the Winter too.

What a heat wave we've been having!  Even in these barely there outfits I was super hot walking to and from the train this week.  Other than that everything was good.  A nice, non-stressful week. I definitely need those every once in a while.  Last night was my company's 5 year anniversary so there was a big party. It was supposed to go until 2, but I obviously couldn't stay that long because I had to take a train home.  I am probably still sleeping as this goes live, thank goodness for working from home on Fridays. I can get up at 9 and just start working.

Monday: Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs - similar (borrowed), Flats: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop), Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Earrings: Urban Outfitters, Rings: Urban Outfitters, vintage & Mom's

Tuesday: Dress: McQ Alexander McQueen (C21, gift), Heels: Dolce & Gabbana (Uptown Consignments), Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Earrings: Urban Outfitters, Rings: Urban Outfitters, vintage & Mom's
Wednesday: Skirt: Made by Mom, Tee:  Everlane, Sandals c/o Sseko Designs, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Earrings: Urban Outfitters, Rings: Urban Outfitters, vintage & Mom's
Thursday: Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs (gift), Heels: Michael Kors (DSW), Necklace: Fracnesca's, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Earrings: Urban Outfitters, Rings: Urban Outfitters, vintage & Mom's

This was a short week for me because I took Monday off.  It was nice to have a lazy day that wasn't a weekend. Don't you find that you enjoy those days more than regular Saturdays and Sundays?  Anywayyy, the rest of the week went well.  We went back to freezing temperatures on Monday which was annoying, I was getting used to not needing a coat.  But it's supposed to get better this coming week, let's keep our fingers crossed!

I was all about comfort because of the return to chilliness.  So I fell back to my standby of jeans + sweater.  On Thursday I mixed it up by wearing a knit dress with a sweater and tights. 

Tuesday: Sweater: Banana Republic, Jeans: Free People (Gilt Groupe), Boots: White Mountain c/o Marshalls, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La)
Wednesday: Sweater: American Eagle (old), Jeans: Genetic Denim c/o Piperlime & Lucky, Flats: H&M, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La)
Thursday: Dress: McQ by Alexander McQueen (Century 21), Sweater: DKNY Cozy (Marshalls), Boots: vintage (eBay), Watch: Skagen (Rue La La)

Today is the last day of November...where has the year gone?!  It's strange how as you get older the time goes by so quickly.  This week seems to be the week of burgundy, except for Thursday, ha ha. Actually, I take that shoes were burgundy on Thursday too!

It is starting to get really cold out outside and signs of Christmas are beginning to appear all around! I love it!  Unfortunately our office seems to think it's Summer and we were dying of heat all week.
