6 Things We Want To Share This Week

6 Things We Want To Share This Week
2011/11/26 Better Blueprint
  1. Black Friday isn't for everyone ... just for those who love being 'in the mix' and who don't really care about the discounts because if it isn't discounted at least 30-40% then it's not really that big a deal~
  2. Starting next week, Blueprint for Style will have a few great shopping lists every few days including the Best Holiday Booty Under $100, 10 Gifts Under $20, Gifts For Your Guy Under $60, and Gifts For The Girl With Everything.
  3. What can you pair with a sequin mini dress for the Holidays? Sequins are fun and festive - perfect for the Holidays, so keep the rest simple and classic. We recommend classic white (or black) so the sequin piece remains the centerpiece and you can either go with a crisp, white pintuck shirt or ulta-feminine with a billowy chiffon top. Accessories and shoes should be metallic or patent leather (actually one statement necklace will carry you just fine). Finish it with a modern cropped blazer.
  4. The ultimate holiday must-have is a sparkly party cardy! Here's a cheery plus-size version or an easy black and chartreuse knit.
  5. As if you didn't have enough shopping to do gents, here are 10 key coats to own. We don't agree with all of them, but our favorite is this parka jacket with detachable lining because the faux shearling lining allows you to go from fall into winter, and the length works for casual Fridays and weekends without any fuss. Do you agree?
  6. OMG at some point, every woman needs to trot gingerly (read: rapidly) to get on public transportation. Thank you Lucky Magazine for sharing the best shoes for running to the bus. We especially liked these.....
