A Few Recent Skincare & Beauty Reviews: Good Genes, The Ordinary’s Caffeine Solution, and More

I’ve recently bought a bunch of skincare and beauty items (many recommended by readers in our “beauty empties” post!) and I’ve been working through a bunch of them, so I thought I’d share my reviews! (We’re also working to update the “beauty empties” post to include a roundup at the bottom of the post of things at least two readers swore by, along with links to places where you may want to buy them.) Readers, did you try any new beauty products in the recent Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales (and specific beauty store sales like the big Sephora sale?)

The Best Winter Blazers to Wear To Work

the best winter blazers to wear to workSure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

Around this time of year, we typically feature stylish velvet blazers among our blazer picks for the best winter blazers to wear to work (including a beautiful blue one from Self Portrait that Kat shared a couple of weeks ago). Many are festive enough for weekday holiday office parties but still professional for workday wear — and versatile enough to pair with jeans on the weekends. We’re bringing you some more recommendations today, including some of our favorite velvet blazers on the market right now — as well as (in our roundup) a few options for tweed jackets if you want a more sedate alternative to velvet. Readers, how do you change up your blazers for work in wintertime? Do you like to wear them as toppers to sexier looks on the weekend? Do you like to wear them to “business attire” events around this time of year such as networking events through alumni or professional organizations, or even holiday office parties held on workdays?the best winter blazers to wear to work 2017

Nordstrom Thanksgiving Sale: Workwear Picks

nordstrom thanksgiving sale 2017Cyber Monday update: almost everything in this post is an EXTRA 20% off for Cyber Monday — we’ve also done a roundup of shoes and bags in the sale!

I’ve been a busy bee going through the early Nordstrom Thanksgiving sale all day! Note that they’ve kind of got two sales going on right now: one is the big designer clearance sale they always have around this time of year, and the second is early markdowns hitting the racks in anticipation of their usual Thanksgiving sale — with TONS of workwear under $100.  On the designer side of things, I’m noticing a lot of sale items for Manolo Blahnik, Chloé, Max MaraAkris punto, Prada and more — and on the regular side of things, lots of good deals on J.Crew, Lafayette 148 New York, Kate Spade New York, Nic + ZoeAGLStuart Weitzman, and Tahari. Note that there are also lots of good deals on beauty, including on Urban Decay (some up to 50% off!), MAC, Philosophy, and Bobbi Brown — and of course some great deals on lingerie including NatoriChantelle, Hanky Panky, Yummie Tummie, and more. I’ll have to save the shoes and accessories in the Nordstrom Thanksgiving sale for another post — stay tuned!
