Fashion Finds: Elegantees

Today is National Human Trafficking Awareness Day and #wearblueday.  Today I am wearing blue to bring awareness to this horrific crime.  Many think this is a “foreign country” problem and often picture women crammed together into a shipping container in some far-off land.  Yes, it is a global issue, but it is also a “backyard” issue.  Human trafficking happens right here in the US every single day.  It happens way more than you think.  It is happening in your cities and your towns.  You just aren’t aware of it.  Most people turn a blind eye to it not recognizing the signs because they choose to believe that it isn’t possible.  To learn more about human trafficking, the DHS Blue Campaign, #WearBlueDay, and what you can do to help end it, visit dhs.gov/blue-campaign/wearblueday.

In honor of this day, I am bringing you some fair trade pieces that are helping to fight against human trafficking in Nepal.  One of my favorite fair trade companies is Elegantees.  They provide women in Nepal with job opportunities to help prevent them from being trafficked and provide a place of refuge for those who have been rescued.  Poverty is the number one factor in trafficking especially in countries like Nepal where the poverty rate is extremely high. This company was created as a way to make a difference.  Keep in mind that fair trade pieces are often considered expensive, and they should be.  This is different from many factories who can offer cheap clothing because they operate sweatshops.  Fair trade companies do not use sweatshops and give their employees a safe environment to work in and offer them a fair and living wage.  That means they are paid enough not just for basic needs but also enough for things like education, healthcare, and more. Wouldn’t you rather pay a little more knowing that the person who created your clothes was given all that and more? I know I would!

Fashion Finds: HOliday Sales WEek 5

There are still more deals to be had and more shopping days to go before Christmas.  Today I am bringing you week 5 of holiday deals and steals.  Whether you are shopping for yourself or as a gift, stores are still having some incredible sales.  I am pretty much done with all of my shopping.  I just have a few gift cards to get, and then I am ready to get wrapping. That is probably my least favorite task.  Give me all the shopping, but can someone else please do the wrapping? I dislike it so much that I try my best to put as many things as I can in a gift bag so that I don’t have to wrap it.  I usually don’t even put bows on the gifts I wrap for family.  It’s too much work to just have it ripped to shreds.  Anyone else with me on that? Anyway, go get your shop on before it is too late.  Be sure to check shipping times as some places may be past or approaching the deadlines for guaranteed Christmas delivery.

Fashion Finds: Holiday Sales Week 1

Normally this time of year, I am sharing with you my Black Friday tips and tricks. However, it’s 2020 and we know things aren’t normal.  As COVID cases are starting to rise again, many states are adding back some restrictions.  Our governor announced Friday that he is putting some on us as well.  Social gatherings have been limited to 25 people and new mask rules now apply.  One article I read even said he was encouraging virtual Thanksgivings.  As of right now businesses are still able to operate, but I don’t know for how long. Plus, I am not so sure I am willing to go out and brave the holiday shopping crowds, and I am almost positive I am not doing my typical Black Friday shopping this year.  That means that the majority of my Christmas shopping is going to be online, and I have a feeling that most of yours will be too.  We are in luck, though, because many stores have recognized that people are going to be shopping a little differently this year and are already putting out Black Friday Pre-sales online. Each week, I am going to be bringing you some great deals that I find on really cute pieces.  Today I have my top 5 picks from 5 of my favorite stores offering pre-sales.  There are some incredible deals here.  Keep in mind that I don’t know how long the sales will last and stock will sell out on some because the deals are that good.

Fashion Finds: Boots

As I have mentioned about a million times, I have an obsession with the fall.  Not only because of the perfect weather and gorgeous colors, but I really love all things fall clothing.  I have an obscene collection of jackets, boots, scarves, and sweaters, and I can’t stop buying them! I am definitely a shop-a-holic when it comes to fall clothing. I just love it all so much.  You also know that I have an obsession with Target.  It is by far my favorite store.  I think Target is a great place to shop for affordable and adorable boots for fall and winter. They recently released all their new fall shoes and some of them are so good.  A few of them were repeats from last year that were favorites.  I love Target for boots because they are affordable, and they typically hold up really well for me.  I tried to pull a few that I really like this year, but there are many more of all different styles available online and in stores. I also tried to include all the color options for you as well.  Seriously, how cute are these? I am really trying to practice some restraint! 

Amalia Fashion Boots

I bought these Amelia Boots last year in Cognac and was obsessed with them.  I wore them like every day.  I am seriously considering getting them in black and taupe this year! 

Katherine Lace Up Wedge Fashion Boots

I almost bought these Katherine Lace Up Wedges several times last year in Taupe (They have a slight olive green tint to them to me, which I like.).  They are super cute and trendy. 

Cianna Heeled Slouch Bootie

Jayden Double Zip Ankle Bootie

I am totally obsessed with these Jayden Booties in the snake print, which is super on trend right now. 

Briar Block Heeled Bootie

Laniee Heeled Scrunch Fashion Boots

These Laniee Boots were super popular last year and were another one I almost bought several times.

Marlee Knee High Heeled Fashion Boots

I am not sure I love these Marlee Boots in the animal prints but the solids are great options! 

Beatrix Cut Out Heeled Bootie

Cari Cut Out Ankle Bootie

Calyn Puffer Collar Winter Boots

Lilyan Platform Bootie

Callie Lace Up Lug Hiking Boots

These aren’t exactly my style, but I just thought they were fun.

Jayla Heeled Tall Fashion Boots

Gretal Faux Leather Over the Knee Fashion Boots

Fashion Finds: Fall Purses

I know that people aren’t really going many places still, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a cute fall purse anyway. LOL! I can come up with a reason for just about everything when it comes to shopping! You have to be ready when the time comes that we can venture out again, right? Plus, I firmly believe that you can’t have too many bags. Who cares if people call you the crazy bag lady? I certainly don’t. Anyway, I found some super adorable bags that are perfect for fall and on into winter, including animal print and plaid!  For the past couple of years, I was on a big crossbody kick. While I still do love all my crossbody purses, I am starting to love some of the bigger tote bags again. Really, though, I just love them all!

Fashion Finds: Amazon

You guys know that I am all about fall, and the fall weather is here! This weekend was amazing with the cooler temps, and I couldn’t be happier. It feels like heaven! Cue the sweaters and boots! I was just fooling around on Amazon yesterday and found myself adding some cute fall items to my cart.  Does anyone else do that? I do it all the time.  I am browsing online and start adding multiple things to my cart until the bill climbs to be a ridiculous number.  Of course, I am not going to checkout with all that in there.  When I am done browsing, I will go through my cart and attempt to narrow things down.  I will click to save some things for later, delete some, and occasionally check out with a few items.  More often than not, though, I never pull the trigger to buy.  I don’t know why I do it because I know that I’m probably not going to buy it.  After all, money doesn’t grow on trees, right? Anyway, I thought I would share some of the adorable things that are currently either still sitting in my cart or that I have added to a wish list for the future. They all have great reviews, too! How cozy do all of these look?

Fall Target Style

Leaves are starting to turn, the temperature is dropping, and I am in heaven! I know it isn’t officially fall yet, but, in my book, fall is here! It is my most favorite time of the year.  Beautifully golden leaves, pumpkins, cozy sweaters, jeans, boots, warm jewel tones, plaid, the start of school…I love it all! I especially love fall clothes.  I may even have a slight obsession with sweaters, boots, and jackets.  I can’t help it.  I just love how cozy they make me feel.  To get all of you in the fall mood (I’m already there!), I have chosen some of my favorites from Target’s new fall releases.  Some of these are just too cute to pass up.  I actually had to limit myself or this post would go on forever.  I left off shoes and jackets for now.  However, if you love those two things like I do, I highly recommend checking them out on Target’s website because there are some adorable ones available right now, and I don’t think they will stay in stock for long.
