The MEGA Shopbop Mega SALE – Don’t miss it!

Hip, hip, hooray! It’s that time of year again. The EPIC Shopbop Mega sale is going on NOW!

5 days only February 26–March 2.
 
We literally wait all year for this Shopbop sale. Trust us, you don’t want to miss it! Hallie scored the Lela Rose for her daughter’s Bat Mitzvah at this sale and saved $$$$$.

We’ll make this short and sweet – here’s what we love. The good stuff goes fast so dilly dally at your own risk.

Today you’ll get Hallie’s picks (She just did a big try on session/order so perfect timing) and tomorrow Elana’s. So, here ya go!

The Beauty Products We Swear By

I am not a total beauty product addict but I’m also not a wash my face with a bar of ivory soap and walk out the door girl either. Call me a moderate beauty junkie. I like products that offer good results and if I am being honest, I’m a little vain. Meaning, I like to look good and I put effort into trying to look my best. Not my best to one-up someone else but my best so I feel good about me. I like it when my skin is smooth and clear, I like it when the concealer I use covers my dark circles and I looooove it when my hair products stop my hair from frizzing out. Extra points if it’s quick, fairly priced and eco-friendly too.

Elana and I have been swapping beauty product reccos with each other, and with our clients for a while now – it’s one of the many fun parts of spending 3 hours in a closet together. And we thought it was time to get you guys in on the action too… so we’re sharing some of our most loved beauty and hair products with you and in return, we hope you’ll comment below and let us all know some of your favorites too.

Our If I Was Stranded On An Island I’d Take…

We used the “If I was stranded on a desert island” method to narrow down which products to recommend – but what surprised me…

THE COAT, Yes, it is THAT good!

There are coats and there is THE COAT! The coat is an internet sensation that has won over the hearts of fashionable women, living in cold climates everywhere. And even though the weather is so up and down (-10 one day and 50 degrees the next) This coat is worth it, especially on those super cold days. Think of it as a grown-up version of the beloved and very sought after Cabbage Patch Doll of the 1980’s – – –  everyone wants it. And I must say, for good reason. It even has it’s own Instagram page!!

I was not a super early adopter on this one, some people commented on my FB feed that they have had this coat for a year or more, smart ladies!! I’d seen it on other bloggers I follow and thought it was good looking. And at $130 worth a shot.  I ordered it in November and was so happy I did. Because when winter finally became winter, like serious, -10 degrees, I need a warm coat winter, I was all set!

Don’t cry me a river, I have other coats – long, short, puffer, fur (faux and regular). In fact, if you ask my husband, maybe too many… some are more fashionable and some more functional but as of now, none are more worn than my THE COAT.

THE COAT seemed to fill a void in my outerwear – here’s why:

Designer Sales are happening NOW – Here’s what to get where.

The holiday crazies are over, and the designer SALES are ON! Especially at upscale retailers with HUGE savings on designer pieces. We are talking up to 80% off in some cases!

There are a couple of things to keep in mind when shopping these designer sales.

1. With major savings, some items can only be returned for credit or are final sale. This is pretty typical when you’re getting something at 50% off or more. These are amazing pieces at amazing savings,  so it’s totally worth it if you know your size etc and/or if you’ll shop there in the future.

2. And sizes are limited and going fast. So yes, you might love something but so does someone else… it might be gone soon.
The bottom line is, we try to take care of you guys – our loyal readers. So, as we’ve been shopping these designer sales for clients, we’ve been shopping with you in mind too.

Here’s a roundup of what to get where.

Make Adult Gift Giving Easy.

Gift giving to kids is usually pretty easy because when you ask them what they want, they aren’t shy about telling you.  Wham bam’ thank you ma’am, (or mom). On the flip side, it’s not so easy to gift other adults. (And we’re not talking about the mail carrier, here.) Like 99.5 % of the time, other adults won’t tell what they want. Which makes no sense, because everyone secretly wants a little something, and if they say they don’t they are probably lying.

Even if you have the kind of relationship where you can bear it all on the table, most likely the adults in your life aren’t telling you what they want.  As grown-ups, it can feel slightly awkward or uncomfortable. Hallie and Elana often help the spouses of our clients (and each other’s spouses) when gifting on special occasions. So, if you don’t have team TWC on your side to help you get or gift this year, we’re sharing the rules we use to make gift giving easy.

Simple rules for giving the best gifts to other adults…

We’re running this post early because the Banana Republic Sale ENDS NOVEMBER 6 at MIDNIGHT!!

Yes, I know this is delivering to your inbox Sunday instead of Tuesday. But for good reason. FIRST,  to remind you to make sure you go out and VOTE on Tuesday!! Because your vote counts!!! And apathy ain’t gonna make any changes happen, and we need change! SO PLEASE VOTE! And second,  to reward yourself for fulfilling your civic duty with a little online sale shopping at Banana Republic, sounds like a really good plan, right??? BTW, the sale ends Tuesday at Midnight – so get on it!

You might be thinking, Banana Republic? Really? That store feels like a great place to shop for work clothes but I need…    But  I think most of you, like most of our clients, want pieces in their wardrobes that can serve multiple purposes. Like a blouse, you can wear to the office, or a volunteer meeting but then also wear out on a Saturday night too. And that’s what we’ve found at Banana Republic and it’s all on crazy sale AND it comes in petite and tall sizes too. So, YOU ARE WELCOME!!

Saks 25% Off, Yes Please!

This is a quicky post. Saks is having their Friends and Family 25% off sale NOW THRU OCTOBER 9. There are fabulous pieces at significant savings. Just note, some things are excluded, like Chanel bags 🙁 But if you goto the Saks site and hover on the SALE tab, on the top right, Friends and Family will come up. Then you can shop all that is part of the sale.

We’ve had quite a few clients looking for cocktail dresses lately, Weddings, Bar mitzvahs, Galas… So here are a few that have caught our eye. Along with some other good basics – it’s kind of a hodgepodge of picks. But remember, I said it was a quicky post.

Great Fitting Pants

Finding a great fitting pair of pants is flippin’ hard. And when I say pants I mean non-jeans. Could be work pants or just khaki pants, basically like gown up non-sweat and not jean pants. It’s like the holy grail of bottoms. “I need a great fitting pair of black pants,” says every woman everywhere. And they’re not easy to find. This is a common theme with many women we encounter, including ourselves. Too tight in the hips and too big in the waist. Dumpy in the tush. Looks matronly. Oy!

Elana and I are built totally differently and often when something doesn’t look good on me, it’ll look amazeballs on her. And vise versa. BTW, that’s how I lucked out with my leopard print high holidays dress this year – If you follow me on Instagram Stories you know all about it. Elana ordered it for herself but it was no bueno on her, so I happily inherited it. Last year the same thing happened in reverse. I ordered and yuck on me, but fab on her.

The Nili Lotan Brand Looks Good on Both of Us!!

Why am I telling you all this? Because when we find things that look good on both of us, it typically means it will look good on most women. Remember the universally flattering Madewell jean we were waxing poetic about last year? That’s one of those pieces that looks good on both of us and on like every woman that has tried them.

This summer we separately tried on the Nili Lotan pants and you know what? They were amazing on both of us!!! Instead of it being one style that fits us both, we each found a different style that was flattering. And since they’ve got a bunch of different styles, there is something for every style, taste and every BODY shape.

Here’s the Low Down on Nili Lotan…
