friday finds

Happy Friday, friends? I know you’re ready for the weekend…but how many of you got up early (or stayed up late) to shop the Anniversary Sale this morning? Sadly, I had a very tragic (and upsetting) experience pre-ordering my beloved St. John wrap dress, but I’m happy to report it was still available online this morning, so I circumvented my salesperson and nabbed double points in the process. That’ll show ’em.

Digressions, they plague me…

To get you started for the weekend, a few things that have been making me happy this week:

Summer is always the time of year when I want bright, colorful jewelry, but something that’s still light and easy to wear. I spotted this utterly charming necklace from Nicola Yoon, and have been imagining it with different outfits ever since. It reminds me quite a bit of my beloved Marco Bicego, but not so much as to be upsetting. And it’s about 1/10 the price. Hard to beat that!

I cannot stop thinking about this beautiful Blaise loafer from Loeffler Randall. Every so often, designer Jessie Randall concocts a delight that completely takes over my brain. This is one of those times. Ikat calf hair? Yes, yes, I think so. Now if only it’d go on sale.

I’m having a big jewelry week, apparently. Isn’t this piece from Taylor Kenney wonderful? So unique and eye-catching, but simple and easy to wear. And you know how I love me some druzy action.

And last but not least, I recently made a bargain beauty discovery, and since those are pretty rare in these parts, I had to share. Yes to Carrots! It’s wonderful. I’m particularly smitten with their Intense Repair Body Lotion which has a not-at-all unappealing (and extremely mild) herbal scent, goes on much lighter than my Eucerin standby, absorbs faster and works as well. Oh, and it’s $9.99 at your neighborhood Target. Score!

Now it’s time for a little Friday Finds action from you, my friends. What did you score at the Anniversary Sale? Anything finds you’re especially excited about? I’m dying to know!

    AH, anniversary sale… didn’t get much – St John’s wrap dress and those gorgeous Fryes in grey (which I am praying will come up over my calves). Running shorts, red patent kitten heels, work pants, pencil skirt, and my annual stock up on Hanky Panky. 😉 Forgot trouser socks, though, so may be stopping by in person later on today.

    whew – glad you got the St John’s wrap dress!! 🙂 sadly for me, the McGinn Elizabeth boucle jacket is sold out ONLINE and in EVERY STORE across the country in my size. sad face. hoping someone will return it… or i suppose my search for a Chanel-esque jacket continues…

    I’m avoiding store sales like the plague. I committed to a no-buy for the month of July and I’m determined to stick it out.
    Although, if my 18 month-old didn’t still try to rip off every necklace I try to wear I’d be tempted by that Nicola Yoon. It’s too pretty to risk so I’m safe!

    I love the Yes to Carrots stuff. I have been using the body wash and face cleanser since January and just recently bought the face moisturizer. First of all it was $14.99 when my old face moisturizer (Arbonne) is over $30. And it works great.

    I love the necklaces in your Friday’s find!!
