New Balance Women's WR00 Minimus Running ShoeSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American readers!  I am thankful, as always, for the readers of this site — I’ve learned so much from you guys and, as I hope you can tell, love writing for y’all.  Thank you for the great run we’ve had thus far!  Stay tuned over the next few days for sales — we’ll try to be on top of all the best Gray Thursday, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday deals.  Our favorite sale at the MOMENT, though, is this extra 25% off handbags and shoes that Amazon is offering through November 28, as we noted throughout our boot roundup on Monday — there are a lot of lucky sizes, but it’s a great chance to buy a basic like a new sneaker.  This New Balance shoe was $109, but is now marked down to $59-$92 (available in three colors) — with discounts the pictured shoe comes down to $70.  Not bad.  New Balance Women’s WR00 Minimus Running Shoe

Ugg Classic Cardy BootsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Brrrrrrr: it is COLD outside.  I almost never wear my regular UGGs, but for some reason these cardigan slipper UGGs look like they would be just the thing for puttering around the house — it’s like they have “Netflix binge” written all over them.  They’re $150 (with 586 great reviews!) at Zappos. UGG Classic Cardy 

(Old Navy has a few more affordable options (if I had a really small foot, I might even try these.))  Happy weekend, ladies!

Sam Edelman SB TrenchSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

6pm is having a pretty great outerwear sale right now (as well as a fun denim sale if you’re in the market — brands like Joe’s Jeans as low as $50!).  From the coat sale, I’m liking this deeply discounted Sam Edelman coat — love that slightly fun but still versatile deep purple color, as well as the single breasted style and the faux leather tabs at the cuffs.  It was $240 but is now $56, available in sizes S-XL. Sam Edelman SB Trench

Here’s a plus-size pick from the sale.

Happy weekend, ladies!

Donna Karan Chiffon Metallic Tweed Skirt | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I am not a fan of beading and sequins. (I guess that’s a good thing — I just read that beading can often be indicative of child labor?) So I really like this non-beaded but sparkly (metallic tweed!) and slightly floaty (chiffon godets!) skirt, from Donna Karan.  I like the longer length to it, and the fact that it can be gussied up or down — wear it with something simple like a turtleneck or festive blazer for an office party… wear it with something fun like a sexy tank top for a dinner date.  The sale is also pretty amazing: the skirt was $1,295, but is currently marked to $317 at Last Call. Donna Karan Chiffon Metallic Tweed Skirt

Here’s a plus-size version (also in regular sizes), as well as another more affordable version.

Psst: Happy Halloween, everyone!

Born AlamidSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

My weekend style is definitely liking the tougher styles brands are showing right now — boots like these almost make me want to find my Dr. Martens from college and see if they still fit.  I like these highly-rated, tough looking boots from Born for wear with all sorts of things from leggings to skinny jeans.  They’re $175 at Zappos.
