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

pearl crossbody… but thank you to all 2000+ entries we had! We’ll be contacting the winner later today. A few points to note:

Frugal Wednesday’s TPS Report: Office Lady Blazer

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Office Lady BlazerI just learned about this company, Rose Wholesale, the other day — a friend had liked the page so the ad was showing in my FB feed with some alluring title like “Women’s coats for under $25.” I clicked, and while a lot of the pieces look a bit costume-y, there are some pieces for work that I might give a shot if I was tired of the usual budget offerings. Take, for example, this black and white blazer, which has a very Chanel-esque look about it. Reviews seeem positive, too, and for $15.37 it’s hard to go wrong. It’s available in sizes S-XL in white and black. Office Lady Blazer

For bargains for plus sizes, check out the “curvy young contemporary” section at Red Dress Boutique — I recently saw an episode of Shark Tank featuring the founder and was impressed enough by her story to click through to check out the boutique.  Most of it isn’t my taste, but I though this plum blazer for $46 looked nice…

Coffee Break: Le Pliage Neo Tote

Longchamp Le Pliage Neo ToteMaybe it is news to no one but me, but I haven’t seen the colored Longchamp bags with matching leather straps. (Last I remember noticing they still had brown straps widely available online.) I much prefer the more streamlined look, and I think the purple is a lovely, versatile color (but of course I do).  The pictured bag is $180 at Nordstrom. Longchamp Le Pliage Neo Tote
