Ready, Set, Shop

The turkey leftovers are finished, pumpkins have been tossed, fall leaf garland has been replaced by lit greenery, which can only mean one thing-it is time to shop til you drop! Today is affectionately referred to as Cyber Monday because everyone gets online to start their holiday shopping. Many online stores offer great deals and discounts as well as free shipping. Here are a few of my fave online stores and their sales today. Enjoy and try to get some work done in between shopping!


Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Piperlime and Athleta

What To Wear To A Holiday Festive Party

For the updated 2010 version of this post click here.

Holiday Festive fits right between cocktail and business attire, a tad less dressy than cocktail and a bit more fancy than what you would wear to work. Holiday Festive dictates that you can be playful, women can wear a silk or chiffon top paired with a pencil skirt or slacks or a playful shorter length dress in a holiday color like red or emerald green.

Dress down a cocktail dress by throwing on a matching jacket and belt or wrapping a cashmere kimono sweater over the top. Women can also pair a basic black shift dress with a bold, glittery necklace and killer heels. This look is all about having fun while still being stylish.

Just an FYI, Holiday Festive does not mean wear a Christmas themed sweater, please, please throw those away!

A few examples of Holiday Festive Attire, all available at www.neimanmarcus.com.
