Friday Favorites

Happy Friday everyone!

I enjoyed my first day of fall break by sleeping in as late as I possibly could, and by watching some movies on Netflix.

I finally watched the Oscar nominated True Grit, and I must say, it was fantastic. (And that’s coming from someone who has nothing to do with western films.)

Random fact to throw out there: I actually auditioned for the role of Maddie Ross in True Grit.

Anyways, with the leaves casually beginning to fall off the trees at my house and the air beginning to grow crisp, I realized it’s time to begin to break out the cozy sweaters and cardigans.

Which brings me to my Friday Favorites.

Here are some sweaters that are on my wish list for the cold weather ahead.

J. Jill Textured Alpaca Vest: $30

Boden Fairisle Jumper: $118

People Tree: Philanthropical Fashion

Happy Thursday!

How would you like to be able to wear stylish quality clothing and help a good cause all at the same time?

Well you can do just that by buying clothing from People Tree.

People Tree has been a pioneer in Fair Trade and environmentally sustainable fashion in the UK since 2001.

People Tree works to improve the lives and environment of  artisans and farmers in developing countries across the globe who work to make quality eco-friendly clothing.

Emma Watson has been a supporter of People Tree in the past, and even helped design several clothing lines for People Tree.

If you cannot order the clothing from the UK, in the US  you can purchase pieces from People Tree’s collection from ASOS.

It’s a great way to be able to look and feel beautiful on the inside and out, and know you are helping to make someone’s life better.

Two of my favorite dresses to wear are from People Tree, and I always feel good when I wear them. They’re a good reminder to have knowing that in some small way, I’m helping others.

You should do the same!

Here are some of my favorite People Tree pieces from ASOS and the People Tree website.

Shop It To Me: Anthropologie Style

Happy Friday  to you all!

This past week I received an email from a friend inviting me to join “Shop It To Me,” a free personal shopping website. Intrigued, I decided to check it out, and let me tell you, I LOVE it!

Basically you get a personalized shopping page where you check off your favorite brands, retailers, sizes, and price range. Then, “Shop It To Me” scours the internet for you, bringing together all of your information to give you the best online sales and deals on the items you’re interested in purchasing.

“Shop It To Me” found the cutest jacket from Anthropologie for me that was was originally around $130, but was on sale for $50!

Basically every brand and retailer are on the site, and there is even a site available for those located outside of the US.

If you would like to join, let me know, and I’ll “invite” you. Once you get 10 people to sign up for it, you’ll get a $10 gift card!

Okay, so I know that it sounds like I was forced to endorse “Shop It To Me,” but I honestly wasn’t.

I was just really excited to share my great deal with you!
