It’s Friday!  I hope your are as ready for the weekend as I am.  My goal this weekend is to finish the process of getting the unwanted items from my closet out of the house!!  I have one one last eBay and Facebook Marketplace push and everything left next weekend is either going to Thred Up or Goodwill.  And it hasn’t just been my closet we have been cleaning … we also emptied the attic and two closets in the basement.  We have been in MAJOR purge mode since the Holidays and it feels so good to pass along items we are no longer using!  It’s also fairly amazing how many things one household can accumulate in ten years!! But enough with that … let’s get on with Friday Favorites. A gift guide to make you a #HolidayHero next week.  A new brand of shoes that have my heart. And the new department store I’ve been shopping more and more.  There is also a weekend sale round-up at the end.  #HappyFriday

What I’m Currently Shopping For

If they are good enough for a princess (Megan Markle) and Amal Clooney then I think they are good enough for me.  A reader asked me about Sarah Flint shoes and I’m now on the hunt.  I tried these BEAUTIFUL (yes, they require yelling) red snakeskin and suede sandals but they are a half size too small.  #Truth – I almost kept them anyway because they are so gorgeous! Does anyone else keep shoes that don’t fit simply because they are too pretty to let go?  If you have any 39.5 that you are looking to part with … I’m your girl. (I’m apparently not your 39 girl). #SomeoneElsesLuckyDay

When I do manage to finally track down an appropriately sized pair you can expect a full review of the good, the bad and the fit.  #NotTheUgly #DefinitelyNotTheUgly

My New Love for Bloomingdales

Let’s be clear, I’m a Nordies girl … BUT lately I have been finding myself more and more frequently standing in an Bloomingdales.  At first I felt like I was cheating on Nordstrom but now it feels perfectly normal to be shopping from both.  Initially it was there in store selection of Guerlain (my new lipstick love) that first got me in the store, but it was their Holiday sales that kept me coming back … such good prices!  But you know what else?  Their loyalist program rivals Nordies and their house brands are good … I mean really good.  How much does that first Aqua dress look like the Saloni one I wore in Miami?  But it’s $88.  $88.  #Seriously  And I’m buying this sleeveless blouse in all four colors – such a great suit layering piece for $58 (currently $46 in their sale going on now!!).  Just looking at the Bloomingdales Exclusives I was able to create two weeks worth of office worthy outfits.  #TwoWeeks

And they have stuff for fun too – like this swoon worthy red dress for that I need to find somewhere to where stat!  Pair with the leather moto and date night is done!!  #DoneDone
