Last year I remember seeing a bunch of women with great big faux fur pom pom hats and — sad trombone! — by the time I finally said FINE, yes, I want one too, they were all sold out. This year I’m ogling this $48 option in a happy, bright red from Free People, but this $15 option also has great reviews and may win out from a budget standpoint. Hmmn. Happy weekend!

I was intrigued to note that readers were singing the praises of Sunday Riley’s Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment when we had our discussion on beauty empties. You can get Good Genes in 1 oz. and 1.7 oz. sizes at Nordstrom for $105 or $158, and at Sephora for the same prices, but if you don’t want to commit to a full ounce, or you’d like to try other products, like the Eve Lom Cleanser, this Holiday Heroes gift set includes 0.5 oz. of Good Genes as well as a bunch of other stuff that’s highly rated. The set is $99 at Nordstrom (a $225 value). Holiday Heroes Silver Edition Collection

If you’re interested in Good Genes or anything else, definitely check out Sephora’s Beauty Insider Event that just started today: Insiders get 15% off with code INSIDER15; VIB, 20% off with code 20FORVIB; and Rouge, 20% off with code 20FORROUGE.

I think we featured a dress like this last year, but I was just at an alumni event and saw someone wearing it — in the daytime. I gotta say, it was really lovely and wasn’t too cocktail evening-y at all. (She got it in the alumni colors, of course, so it was that much better.) I think it’s a great dress for cocktails or parties, or for a desk-to-dinner dress. Nordstrom has it in navy and in this lovely emerald, and it comes in regular and plus sizes for $138–$158. Vince Camuto Velvet Burnout Sheath Dress

I don’t know what it is lately but I can’t get enough of things that have little thumbholes in them, like this wrap sweatshirt. It has pockets and looks like a great shirt for lounging on the weekend and going to and from the gym, etc. It comes in regular and plus sizes at Nordstrom for $99–$109. Elevate Me Wrap Sweatshirt

This bootie from Born has a ton of good reviews — 47 of them, with 4.9 stars out of 5.0 overall. It comes in a shiny black leather, gray suede, and gray leather, as well as the burgundy we’re featuring here. I like the cutouts on the side and the zipper in the back, and Born is known for making very comfortable shoes. For the price it’s hard to go wrong: $109–$119 at Nordstrom (also available at Zappos and Amazon.) It’s available in sizes 6–11. ‘Kerri’ Bootie

Embroidered Lace Sheath DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Lace dresses like this can sometimes be a bit mumsy/MOBish (mother of the bride), but for some reason I’m loving this Tadashi Shoji number with corded lace overlays. It looks elegant, sophisticated, and (always key) versatile. I’d wear this to an anniversary dinner with my husband as well as to a holiday party or charity kind of thing. It’s available in sizes 2–16 for $268–$398, with a zillion color options and tons of good reviews. Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress

Looking for a more affordable option? Amazon has some lucky sizes from this brand on sale for as low as $85. As far as plus sizes, this City Chic dress, this Tahari dress, or this Karen Kane dress all look gorgeous, and as a brand, Brianna has a lot of options.
