Onitsuka Tiger by Asics Mexico 66 | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Friday! My love of the retro sneaker trend continues, and I may just have to pick up these cool Onitsuka Tiger by Asics shoes. I particularly like the black and “shaded spruce” option, but it comes in 10 different colors. The 1,417 positive reviews don’t hurt either. They’re $85 at Zappos. Onitsuka Tiger by Asics Mexico 66

Psst: 6pm.com has several color options for the Mexico 66 with prices from $35 to $68. Many are also available at Amazon (although the price range there is $26 to $105 and some sizes/colors are very limited).

Wonderbag Non-Electric Portable Slow Cooker | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

This may be a weird weekend pick, but it’s been on my mind since I saw it (for reasons other than my love of a colorful case). This little insulated bag basically creates a portable, non-electric slow cooker. I love the idea that one is gifted to a family in Africa for every one bought, and I think it would be great for a variety of women — the one whose power goes out often, the one who hates the idea of leaving the slow cooker on while she’s not there, the woman who perhaps may be driving a good distance for holiday parties… The blue one is $54.54 at Amazon, but it looks like it’s a Lightning Deal, available for $44.98 until 2pm EST. Wonderbag Non-Electric Portable Slow Cooker

Psst: We’ve talked about slow cookers before (and super lazy dinners for them).  Random Q: Has anyone found a healthy liner for the crockpot (a friend recently pointed out that the ones I’ve been using are likely filled with chemicals and more, and it’s made me a bit freaked out.)

T Tahari Wool-Blend Filigree-Button CoatSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Last Call has a ton of cute coats on sale (including this modern-feeling one from Joie, a bunch of pretty steeply discounted Cinzia Rocca & Cinzia Rocca Due coats, and this gorgeous green Oscar de la Renta statement coat). For today’s Weekend Open Thread I like this bright red coat (also in black, navy and gray). (I *may* have the exact same one myself — I definitely have a black Tahari with “fancy” silver buttons.) It looks wearable and cute, and red is a happy color to wear in the winter. The coat was $400, then marked to $225, but with the 30% off sale, comes down to $157.50.

(Here’s a similar red option in plus sizes.)

Holiday Weekend Open Thread

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!
