We have been looking for a 65" 4K Ultra HD TV for our family room to replace the old 36" Toshiba Tube we had for about 15 years.  We stopped by Bustbuy last weekend to look at the options. Samsung was the top provider and best rated for this type, but I find Vizio to be just as good. Vizio is considered the value brand, but it delivers equally great quality images.  For naked eyes I don't think I can tell the difference. Some of the Black Friday deals are already online which is great since I thought we had to wait for stores to open early in the morning to get the deal.  We pulled the trigger on this P-Series 65" class - LED = 2160p - Smart -4K Ultra HDTV for $1499.99. Free shipping and free haul away (this is a must for us, since we have no idea how to get rid of the heavy tube.) Higher price but higher rating alternative also on super sale now for $2299.99 is this Samsung 65" class LED - 2160p - smart -3D - 4K Ultra HDTV.

J.Crew - 30% off your purchase with code GETFESTIVE

Sale Alert: Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th 40% off purchase

Happy Friday! This year's Black Friday deals start early. Lots of stores are putting out major deals starting now. So if you are looking for gifts for Christmas it's a good time to pay attention to these sales. Some are simply amazing.

Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th is offering 40% off purchase with code GOBBLE. Expires 11/23/2014. That's incredible. It does have exclusions on some brands, but you'll be able to see the eligible items on the page marked "Extra 40% OFF With Code: GOBBLE".

This Diane Von Furstenberg New Julian Two Star Print Wrap Dress is on sale for $269.99, and is eligible for an extra 40% off.  All sizes are available from 0 to 14.

Can't believe these Aquatalia by Marvin K boots are also eligible for the extra 40% off.  I love these Ramar Suede Tall boots.

Boots Review: STEVEN by Steve Madden Whispper Boots

I recently found an excellent dupe for Stuart Weitzman's Demiswoon that retails $645. Meet STEVEN by Steve Madden Whispper Boot.

Demiswoon $645
Whispper $199

What I like about the Whispper is not only its price tag (reg. $199, on sale for $152.14, plus use code 20OFFVET to get 20% off. Final price: $121.71. Free shipping.)  What really impressed me about these boots are the fit. The boots pull on very easily (unlike the SW counterpart), and because it has a zipper on the inside part of the boot, taking it off is a breeze too. Although I love my SW ones, trying to get those babies off is not something I look forward to every day. These Whisppers? Not a problem. I have medium calf, not too small but most boots are too big for me. These boots fit like a dream. It is just over the knee in the front and it stays there. No sagging after walking in the grocery store for 20 minutes. Thumbs up! (for reference I'm just under 5 feet. Long torso, short legs.)
The size 6 boots measures 21.5" from the highest point (front) to the bottom of the boot. The back side measures 19.5" from the top to bottom. It measures 6.5" across the widest part of the boot. 
Size 6 fits me perfectly, and I would say it's true to size because most of my shoes are size 6's. Available sizes are from 6 to 10 with half sizes intervals. Too bad they don't make any smaller sizes for my petite friends. 

Another thing to mention is how comfortable these boots are to walk in. The outer soles have some serious treads on (great for snow days) and they feel like soft rubbers. Every step I took, it felt like there was good cushioning when the feet hit the floor. The knee area is also very bendable. 
Hope you find this review helpful.  I wore the boots both days in the weekend after I got it. This was the outfit I wore on Sunday to run errands. 
Outfit Details:
Loft Jeweled Sweatshirt (xsp, sold out here, similar here)
Loft Tweed Flippy Skirt (xxsp, here)
STEVEN by Steve Madden Whispper Boot (on sale here, 20% off code 20OFFVET)
Rebecca Minkoff MAC in Purple (here)
Chanel sunnies (from BBOS, invite here)

Sale Alert: Talbots extra 40% off Markdowns (Introducing Pink Double Faced Jacket)

Talbots finally started a decent discount sale. 30% extra off markdowns if you buy 1 item, and 40% off extra if you buy 2 or more. Expires 11/11.  Discount is automatic at check out. No code needed.  I want to use this opportunity to introduce this pink coat I got in August.  It retails $189, marked down to $129.99. With 40% off, it comes down to $77.99.  If you can find your sizes I'd recommend that you give it a try. It's well made, but has a loose fitting nature. It's great for early fall days and probably would last a whole winter for people living in warmer states. I got a size 0P and it fits like a Loft or Ann Taylor 0P. Bracelet sleeves. Very pretty light pink color.

Sale Alert: Madewell 2-day Sale - 25% off Select Sweaters & Boots

Madewell touts itself as a younger J.Crew.  Employees at Madewell are very proud to work there. They joked about being that much better than its sister store. I love stopping by when I am in the mall and they are always very friendly.  I have gotten a few essential pieces that I ended up loving throughout the years. One of them is this "lonny boot" I purchased last year and loved to pieces. I wear it with everything. It's super comfy, no breakin needed for me and the heel height is just right. I highly recommend it to everyone.  (See it on me here)

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope this post find all of you warm and dry, no matter where you are. We've had some crazy weather recently. Saturday was rainy all day. It switched between drizzles and downpours all day and all night. It looked so gloomy outside that we stayed in all day.  Today it finally cleared up. In exchange we got hit by extremely cold temperature and the wind was blowing hard. The windchill I think was near freezing. Tonight we'll have a low of below freezing (around 28 degrees).  I am very thankful though that none of this yuckiness happened on Halloween so the kids were able to do some proper trick or treating. 

Today's outfit is inspired by a book I've been reading recently: Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange. You can find this good review here with pictures.  I found this book a very easy and fun read.  Pairing a classic navy sweater (timeless) with white jeans is effortless, because the "two items are just made for each other". I added a camel coat and a navy/gray leopard print scarf (my favorite recent purchase from J.Crew's 50% extra off sale for color interest and warmth.

J.Crew houndstooth sweater (last season's, similar)
