This year I've made huge strides in incorporating more easy breezy dresses and skirts into my wardrobe. Now that the temperatures have drastically dropped, I've been reaching for cozy knit versions that are versatile enough to wear with sneakers, boots or heels. When the chill is out of control, I add Uniqlo's "Heattech" tights and these over-the-knee boots into the mix.
I've been scoring major deals at theRealReal, my guilty little pleasure. These Aquazzura booties were my most recent find. The trick to shopping consignment is to have a list of items you need (or want!) handy. That way you don't get too excited and pull the trigger on something just because it's deeply discounted. For items that aren't on the top of my list, I simply add them to my "obsessed" file and keep an eye on them until prices drop. I highly recommend signing up for their "First Look" program, where you get early access to their latest sales and new arrivals. Also, it pays to visit brick and mortar shops to try on specific designer shoes and clothes you are hunting down. Getting the size and fit right avoids a lot of wasted time shipping and returning what doesn't work.
I've got a busy two weeks ahead finishing up work and prepping for all the holiday festivities! Really excited to spend a lot of down time with family and friends.
