SJP By Sarah Jessica Parker Now At Nordstrom!

The newest most exciting celebrity designer collection, now at Nordstrom, is SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker.  So many people have loved her style since she was Carrie on Sex In The City.  She's been followed everywhere by the paparazzi and we're often treated to pictures of her style roaming the streets of New York City.  Have you ever imagined yourself in her shoes?  Now you can literally experience such a thing.  Let's take a look at some of the things being offered in the SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker collection.

Nordstrom, shoes, purses, handbags, trench coats

The first thing you should know is that the shoes aren't in every Nordstrom store.  They are online but the stores that are initially showcasing the collection are listed at the bottom of this page.

I was really hoping there would be a shoe named Carrie and there is.  You see how it is a quintessential Carrie Bradshaw type of pump in purple, nude or black.  The Nordstrom website even gives complete looks with the collection to illustrate how to style the items.  For instance, here's the Carrie and styled with the SJP trench coat.

Nordstrom, shoes, coats, SJP Collection, style

Here we have the Maud Sandal, which comes in a variety of colors, and a way to style it.

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker, Nordstrom

You really need to check out the full collection.  There are purses, sandals, flip flops, espidrills, and more.  On the Nordstrom website are videos, a blog with SJP,  and a Pinterest contest to win a collection of SJP shoes worth $2000!  There is so much information online, you really should spend some time looking at it all.

Below are the locations where the shoes are currently displayed:

Fashion Valley (San Diego)
The Grove (Los Angeles)
San Francisco Centre (San Francisco)
Santa Anita (Arcadia)
South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa)
Topanga (Canoga Park)
Valley Fair (San Jose)

Aventura (Aventura)
International Plaza (Tampa)
Village of Merrick Park (Coral Gables)

Ala Moana (Honolulu)

Michigan Avenue (Chicago)
Oakbrook Center (Oak Brook)
Woodfield Shopping Center (Schaumburg)

Natick Mall (Natick)
New Jersey
Cherry Hill (Cherry Hill)
Garden State Plaza (Paramus)

New York
Roosevelt Field (Garden City)

Washington Square (Tigard)

The Mall at Green Hills (Nashville)

Houston Galleria (Houston)
NorthPark Center (Dallas)

The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City (Arlington)
Tysons Corner Center (McLean)

Downtown Flagship (Seattle)

It's pretty exciting to look at.  Shoes are always fun, don't you think?  I couldn't wear as high a heel as Sarah Jessica Parker, but I could do sandals and flats, for sure.

Do you think the shoes are representative of her style?  What do you like the look of the best?

Outfit Of The Day - How To Layer Affordable Clothing

Today on a little old trip to the Mayo for some poking and prodding, I wore the outfit below.  I'm being forced to learn that you can put together a really fantastic outfit on a budget.  This one is very affordable.

The first thing you have to know is Old Navy has some awesome in style affordable clothes.  They have talls on line.  TALLS IN SHIRTS AND DRESSES, people!!!!  How often can you find tall shirts?  Like never!!!  That turned me into an Old Navy lover for life.  This sweater in grey and the grey and white dress come from Old Navy.  I bought them off the rack so they're not talls, but the length is fine.  I probably could have used a tall in the dress but I needed it now.  So there ya go.  The list price is $39.00 but like I said, there's always a sale.  Sometimes it's better online and sometimes in the store so watch.  The dress has a list price of $29.94 and see above reference what I paid.

I love this necklace!  I got it at Patty's Closet in Anchorage for just $12!!  I'm going to show you this store in a post soon and tell you why you have to shop there!

How to layer clothing, Old Navy, Kohls, Patty's Closet, boots, Nordstrom, Sweater, dress

I have to tell you, I don't like the folds I got from the neck fusion.  I understand why it's there now because I read the surgeon's notes today.   Yikes, it was a terrible mess after I fell on the ice.  Wow!  So, ew, I was in a neck brace for almost nine months, the hard collar kind...well, if you're a regular reader, you saw it before, all blingy and pretty.  But this time, my neck didn't turn out pretty.  Anyway....UGH!

The belt is silvered and is from a pair of shorts I got at Kohl's a few years ago.  I always take the belts out and put them aside.  LISTEN UP!!!  If you get some belt or accessory on a clothing item that you're not going to use at the time, just set it aside because you never know when it's going to be the piece that you need to finish off your outfit.  Am I right or am I right????

The leggings are from Fred Meyer.  Again, if you're in the PNW, you know how often things go on sale and about the weekly coupons.  It pays to wait, if you can, until your item is in the sale group unless you need it that night.  If you're in the Lower 48 and Hawaii, you can find the same leggings at the Nordstrom Rack.  They're called Legend and they're under $10 on sale at both places.  Normal price at Fred Meyer is $14.

And the boots >>>>> CRAZY SALE!!!  $60 on the Nordstrom Rack Sale side of the Nordstrom website.  I thought the original price was great, but $60!?!?!?!?!  Embellished with interest at the ankle and calf.  Take a look on the website and you can turn the boot around to see the detail.  Fantastic!!  And super duper comfortable.  I have two colors that I bought at full price.  Oh yes I did.

Those are the deets of this layered outfit.  Many of these items will be worn over and over during my time out of state.  Ok all of them.  You need them too!!!  The boots are almost sold out.  Get them if you can!!

How are you wearing your layers at this time of year?

(psst!  You'll be seeing me wearing makeup again soon!!!  oh, ugh, I know, right?  My latex blisters are almost healed after five months but I have a few that are still pretty deep.  *fingers crossed*  Until then, I will play with color via fashion.  But guess what?  I wore eyeshadow today!!!  WOOT!!!)

You want these leggings!!! Hue blue jean!!! With pockets!!

Hue leggings come from Nordstrom and they are uber comfortable as anyone will tell you.  I wanted some jeans leggings to wear with my boots and it occured to me that I could wear denim capri leggings and cheat and no one would know they weren't full length!!!!  I do still want the full length denim to wear with flats but isn't it cute how the picture is styled?????

I picked these because I really loved the styling of the real back pockets.  So as I walk around, sashaying to and fro, they will look like skinny jeans.  I didn't even have enough room in my suitcases for my skinny jeans to wear with my boots.  What?  What?  Yeah, that's what my husband said!!

Hue, denim leggings, capris, Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack

I bought these at the Nordstrom Rack for a steal.  A steal.  So comfortable?  So tell me, do you do Hue?

Spring 2014 Brings Us Four New Nars Final Cut Blushes

I saw these in person and, (sigh), yes they are beautiful.  The Nars Spring 2014 Final Cut blushes will blow your cheeks off.  You can see them below.  There is the pale pink of Sex Fantasy and below it, the deeper coral pink of Love.  On the other side is the brighter coral Final Cut, and on the bottom is the bright pink of New Attitude.

Resistance is futile.  I bought Final Cut and Love, and had a rather large want for Sex Fantasy.  So pretty but I was a little worried of the chalkiness that was portrayed in the sample on the counter.  What was I thinking?  I KNOW I can handle that.  Want it!!!  You'll see my swatches soon.

By the way, I'm sure you'll be seeing my usual wearing of cosmetics VERY soon.  My latex blisters are almost healed after five months.  I've got a few deep stubborn hangers-on.  My skin is very thick, (not in the proverbial "oh, she's thick skinned" type of way), due to my autoimmune illness.  It's just a real drag as a beauty blogger.  But like it or not, I suspect my face will be back within a month.

Did you fall for the Nars Final Cut Collection?  I bought a couple of the lip pencils...had the palette but read my friend's reviews and returned it without opening it.  And I really would like that shimmer glow.  ooooooooooooooh!!!

Outfit of the day. How To Wear Leggings And A Sweater With A Scarf, and BOOTS!

Affiliate Link

From Fred Meyer, I purchased the grey leggings, the boot socks with the buttons sewn on the side, and the long sleeved off-white t-shirt with V neck.  It's a little sheer so I covered it with the scarf and sweater from Old Navy.  I have this sweater in a couple of colors.  I'm totally in love with it!!  (For reference, I usually buy talls since I'm 5'8" but this sweater is in the regular length.)

The boots are SO comfortable.  Actually the whole outfit was.  I'm sorry about the wierdness of my neck.  Being in the neck brace for nine months left it pretty bumpy and I have to try and figure out what to do to fix the muscles, etc.

  Anyway, the Enzo Angiolini boots at Nordstrom are now on sale for almost $100 OFF!!!  Get them HERE and get them NOW!  (gah!  I paid full price for both of mine.  wow!)  They're only $60 now!!!

Today I really get it why this look is so popular.  It's SO comfortable!!!  After I took the pictures, I threw on my leg brace and it didn't totally kill the look.  *High five*

I Love The Holiday 2013 Nordstrom Shopping Bags!! They Always Make Me Happy!!

Aren't these such pretty bags this year?  I've been collecting all the different variety of Nordstrom shopping bags for a lot of years.  I'm sure my husband thinks it's crazy, and perhaps it is, but some day, I will be a little old lady with my collection of totes from Norstrom and I will be very happy at the colors of holiday cheer and my memories of the best store in town!

Doesn't Everyone Need At Least Two Pairs Of Steve Madden Boots? The Brewzzer and The Monicca!!

Steve Madden, black boots, studs, Monicca, Brewzzer, Nordstrom

Affiliate Link

The boot on the right is the Steve Madden Brewzzer Boot and retails for $129.  It's available in black, Cognac, and Stone Leather.  Hmmm, the stone leather would be a great addition to my woredrobe.

On the left is the boot metioned before the Steve Madden Monicca Boot in black.  I love that the studs go all the way around on both sides.  The inside also has a zip up the side for easy access.  I have seen knock-offs of this boot and none of them are studded all the way around.  This is an outstanding deal!!

The Monicca also comes in Stone.  I have hemmed and haw'ed over the stone color since these boots came out during the anniversary sale.  I'm half afraid of my husband and half afraid the boots will sell out before I make my decision.  Originally $189.95 for this great artistic work, this boot is now on sale for $127.26

I have included the links to Nordstrom, where I got mine. ;You can also check out their own Steve Madden where there is currently a free shipping and 15% off $100 and 20% of $150 or more.  You're very welcome.  :)
Get these now so that you can holiday shop in style and comfort.  Steve Madden anything fits me perfectly.  Are you going to be rocking boots for the holidays and thru winter?  Which ones?

You Must Appreciate The Detail In The Steve Madden Monicca Boots!

These moto style studded boots are absolutely delicious. They have studs all the way around, which you won't find with the knock-offs. I really feel cool when I wear these. I got mine at of my best buys of the year.

JLo Skinny Jeans With Steve Madden Moto Boots - Quick View

Affiliate Link

I adore my Steve Madden Monicaa Boots purchased from Nordstrom.  I had wanted to get these initially during the Anniversary Sale but my husband vetoed them.  What does he know?  These are so in style right now and who doesn't love a moto boot with a little bling?

Taking a very uncharacteristic route, I waited for them to go on sale again and when they did, ($127.26), I snapped them up.  They also have taupe, which is selling quicker.  Since my husband retired, I'm trying so hard to only have the one pair.  What do you think?  Taupe, too?

The first time I saw the Jennifer Lopez Embellished Skinny Jeans at Kohl's, I pictured them with these boots.  They are on clearance for a great price!!!  They fit true to size and you need them.  Just trust me and get them.  Hurry.  Clearance.  I couldn't find my size in the store so I ordered online and Kohl's ships quickly!!!

Once again....happy camper!  Just trust me and buy these jeans.  They do run really long, (good for me being 5'8"), but stick them in jeans and who's going to know?  At just $24, I'm tempted to get a back up pair.  I love them so much.

Maybe I can get my family to help me get you a better picture?  Maybe? I have picked up several other styles of boots at, a website owned by Nordstrom that has incredible deals.  If you use my links, it would make me incredibly happy.  (See my disclosure policy for more information).

Are you rocking boots and skinny jeans this fall?  Or winter?  What are your go-to styles?

Nail Trends From The Nordstrom Holiday Catalog

While I was perusing the new Nordstrom Holiday Catalog, I was particularly interested to see the nail styles that were used to showcase the products for sale.

I always love a good french nail.  The one pictured is particularly interesting as it features what looks to be a matte burgundy nail with a shiny stripe acoss the top.  I call this a Tuxedo nail sometimes; I suppose due to the matte black nail with a shiny tuxedo stripe across the top that has been all over Pinterest for about a year.

Next is a glittery waterfall tip.  Love this!!!  These waterfalls are done over a nude or perhaps naked nail.  And third is the pink nail with the golden line where a french tip would start.  Recently at a couple of weddings, my friends did the typical white french nail and added a silver stripe underneath the white tip.  I love this golden line over the pink that is shown below.

Now, I also found plenty of items that would fulfill my little heart's desires in the catalog, but I just thought these nails were too cool not to post.

Which design is your favorite?

16 Ways To Wear A Scarf..With Video!

Technically, there's no wrong way to wear a scarf. There are no rules with this accessory; all that is needed to pull off a look is a little creativity. I've been shopping for scarves to wear with some of my new spring colors lately. There's just no better way to mix new colors with your older standards than a scarf that ties it all together. So when my scarf shopping turned to online, I found this cool video on the Nordstrom website.

I like it, so you gotta watch it.

 This video has inspired me to try a couple new ways; specifically, the celebrity and the pretzel.  I don't know why, but I couldn't figure out the pretzel myself, so I was happy to see it in the video.
What's your favorite way to wear a scarf?

Let's Talk Turkey About Black Friday and Cyber Monday

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It's a peaceful time of love and family where we can relax and enjoy each other and be thankful for having each other in our lives. I love that feeling more than anything.

But THIS YEAR....(and this is not to minimize the warmth of the holiday, I just have a different post in mind today)....we are going to go play Black Friday!!! And boy are there a lot of things to consider!

Wal Mart will be open all day, but that's boring. Give me a line of people all cheery and laughing about how stupid we are while sipping a hot mocha over stores open all day anytime!!! We're starting at Target at 9 pm. While some run to the electronics section, I'm stopping into the cosmetics aisle as I've been lured by some beautiful pictures of intrigue.

Pixi has some interesting holiday offerings.  The first kit runs $34 USD.  I haven't used their eyeshadows or blushes yet, but I imagine they're good.  The things I have used from the line are nice so I really want to look at this.

I LOVE Pixi nail polish.  They usually retail for $9-10 each so three polishes for $12 is a great deal and these look awesome to me.

The Lid Last Shadow Pen Duo retails for $12.  I have the pen on the left and it makes an awesome shadow base or is great alone with a liner.  Love it!!
Burt's Bees...who doesn't love Burt's Bees?  This year there are some great holiday sets to consider.  The Burt's Bees Favorites set is just $19.99

And look at this block of nail polish from Elf.  Dying to try this.  It's only $10!!

Elf also has two large eyeshadow palettes containing all the palettes you could possibly want.  I haven't tried their shadows yet, have you?  The palettes are just $15 each!

Awesome, right?  Right.  After Target, I'd like to head to Ulta.  They have a two page doorbuster flyer online right now but they haven't released all their in store specials yet, so I'll amuse myself in the meantime by shopping online.  There is a plethora of online deals to choose from!!!  

Beginning this morning, Inglot Cosmetics has a 20% off sale.  I'll be shopping there.  

If you look at the Affiliate ads on my sidebar, (they go live on Friday), you'll see that Nordstrom is having a buy 2, get one polish free special for Black Friday.  They have other cosmetics specials as well, so once Friday hits, click thru my ad, if you don't mind, and it will help sustain my website as you shop.  You'll find all kinds of deals.  Cyber Monday brings many more and on Monday, I'll have new ads.  Order online Monday and receive 10 pts per dollar on your Nordstrom Rewards card.  Counting down the hours....

Billion Dollar Brows, a brand I'll be reviewing for you soon, has a special this Black Friday, of 70% off their 3 Steps To Beautiful Brows Kit.  It retails for $85 and you can purchase it for $25.50 with the code BDBBLACKFRI.  This code is good from 11/22/12 to 11/26/12 11:59 PST.  I have this kit.  It's really nice.  It contains a brow pencil, brow gel and brow serum.

After I have some turkey tomorrow, I'll come back with more special savings.  That way, the special banners will be active, or closer to it, and the post won't be so long you can't stand it.  :)

What are your Thanksgiving plans and do you have any Black Friday madness in store, or how about Cyber Monday?
