It’s very rare that all of my current favorite pieces of clothing go together to make one complete outfit, but by some miracle, all the pieces I purchased on Black Friday fit together pretty seamlessly. I thought I demonstrated some self-control this Black Friday, but once I saw all the boxes laying on the floor, I realized that I had failed miserably. This outfit is a pretty good representation of all of my favorite purchases.
Now that it’s winter, it’s time to bust out those turtlenecks. For the longest time, I associated turtlenecks with “Things My Mom Wears,” which from the ages of 16 to 21 equaled “Things I Will Never Consider Wearing.” Now that I’m a bit older, I have come to realize that my mom, in fact, did know it all. Turtlenecks are great. They did get a bit of a re-vamp so now you have turtlenecks in various materials and styles. The possibilities are endless.
With all the sales going on, I couldn’t help myself but to dip my toes into some of the latest trends – slip dresses and velvet errything. I have been on the hunt for a slip dress and some velvet booties for a while now. One of my go-to websites is ASOS and when they were doing their 30% off everything for Black Friday, I went a little crazy. I got the app, and it was game over. I can spend hours on ASOS and find every possible trend at every price point. It’s amazing and scary at the same time. Needless to say, my wallet took a hit the second I typed in “asos.com.” Actually, I probably frequent the site so much I just needed to type the “a” and the website auto populated.
I’m really happy with the slip dress because it’s a thicker material and midi length, so it’s more practical for the colder months. My favorite purchase by far were the velvet booties. I have been on the hunt for navy velvet booties and these ones from ASOS, ticked all the boxes for me. They are extremely affordable and comfortable for a 4 inch heel. I wore them all day at work and my feet weren’t dying at the end of the day. The ASOS brand does not do half sizes, so if you’re in-between sizes, I recommend just purchasing two sizes. They do free returns, so don’t worry about being stuck with two of the same thing!
