TGIBF! (Thank G-d It's Black Friday)

Gap puffy jacket, Old Navy rockstar jeans, Hive and Honey (similar)boots.

Even though you all know I love a good sale more the chocolate! I must admit I never partake in the Black Friday madness. I always spend the Friday after Thanksgiving, hanging with my family.  Usually this entails going out for dim sum and a walk, and enjoying my parents, siblings and kids.  But as we all know these sales are not all "one day only".  I mean now we even have Cyber Monday (really?!!) 

Anyway, as my son and I picked up pies( I did bake a pumpkin pie, but I can never get the apple one right!)  on the day before Thanksgiving, we happened by the Gap and popped in to "kill" time.  Lucky for me, as I scored this puffy jacket for 60% off ($59.00)!!!  The reviews on-line are not great, but I LOVE it. It is the perfect puffer for San Francisco winter.  Thin and not bulky.  It might not keep you warm in Minnesota though!

My sister-in-law ( a bargain hunter extraordinaire), found these great buys at her local loft store, where they were having a take an extra 50% off sale (on Tuesday?!).  The dress (as seen in Allure ) was scored for $2.40, originally priced at $79.50.  And the cute animal print top (I've been coveting this myself!)  was $29.75 originally priced at $59.50!  

You can still get all of these items on line. But for those prices you'll have to hit the stores!

Keep up your bargain hunting as I am sure you too can find many treasures without the Black Friday madness! 

Let me know if you found any "Black Friday"  bargains!

ROSEY's Rags....Missoni for Target and Bookfair!

When I picked up this dress on my Missoni for Target misson, I knew exactly when I'd wear it!

You may have noticed I was absent from posting last week. That is because like most of us Moms, I am very involved at my children's school. Last week was my big event that I co-chair with one of my bff's. Although it was crazy and exhausting, that doesn't mean I'd sacrifice fashion. Vola! The perfect day for my brignt Missioni for Target sweater dress (notice how its bright colors look fab with the room!)

Versace is coming, Versace is coming!

Not sure if this will be a repeat perfomance of Missoni for Target, but I for one plan to be down town to H&M early on Saturday November 19th, to get some of these must have, fun looks from Donetella!   I LOVE Versace's over the top styling and now I am excited to have some in my closet in a way I can afford.

I do have one request though for Donetella, please stop with the face "augmentation"!  Can't we just grow old somewhat gracefully? (she looks a bit scary to me!!)

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the up coming line.

ROSEY's Rags....Moms Unite!

On Jamie:  Mossimo skinny jeans, H&M Tee,  S-Twelve(Ambiance sf cardigan, Boots; Ciao Bella, Headband; belt (vintage Etcetera). On Sandy: sweater oonagh; Leather Jacket; 3.1 Phillip Lim; Suede Boots; Sam Edelman;Jewelry; Stella and Dot

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Work out clothes are meant for the gym!!! Okay, so we are all time crunched. I will admit I sport mine also for a quick run to Trader Joes and maybe to Target.  But there is a limit!   Really guys, we have thrown away our "mom jeans" and replaced them with a new "mom uniform".  Lets all hold hands and make a vow to get out of our Lululemon and Athleta looks by at least pick up time (and if you can't, well that's what drive through is for)!  You don't have to be "over the top" gorgeous.  A simple pair of jeans and a cute sweater or jacket over a tee shirt, with some cute accessories or jewelry, is all you need to look stylish and fresh!  

Can you keep a secret? In the picture above I haven't washed my hair in 3 (maybe 4 days).  Pulled back in my ponytail and cute would never know!  My look was super quick and easy with no blow out required.  And check out my Smoke and Mirrors post for make up tricks to look refreshed without all the fuss.

Ladies, I believe in you!   Repeat after me, " I will get out of my work out clothes by 2pm"!

I have one word for you ladies, SPANX!

It is beyond belief that SPANX could get any better, but they have!  The have come out with the legging to end all leggings and it's called the "Look at Me" legging.  Say good bye to baggy knees, and saggy crotches and give these new cotton leggings by Spanx a try.  This makes me extra happy since most days I find my self peeling on my regular leggings over my SPANX.  That is no easy task!  Right now they only come in black...but watch out, I'm sure other colors are not too far behind.

IF you are reading this and asking what are SPANX? Then you must live on another planet.  Do you think that Kim Kardashian gets those seamless curves without a little help?  Of course not!  Under ever great dressed Hollywood Starlet you will find a pair of SPANX.  They are a must have in every woman's wardrobe.  A wardrobes foundation if you will.  SPANX are the revolutionary invention of Sara Blakely (if you have not read her story click on her name to be inspired)!  They are the go to shaping and slimming undergarments of women every where.  If you do not own a pair you should (and maybe not just one).  And if you don't want to pay the price for a great looking derriere.  Then check out their lower priced line ASSETS

ROSEY's Rags....Halloween Fun

What does every fashionista enjoy most (besides shopping that is)? Playing dress up! Although, I try to play dress up everyday while styling myself, Halloween takes it to a whole new level! I hope you all had fun playing dress up too.

It was so fun to channel my inner "Jersey Girl" this Halloween.  Fist Pump to Snooki!
