Sale Alert: J.Crew Chateau Parka in Stadium-Cloth $202.99

J.Crew is running a 40% off 497 gift picks and 30% off everything else sale. Use code GETGIFTS. They've been running a few similar sales recently and every time I checked this chateau parka was excluded from the sale. Well, this time most of the colors are still excluded but there are a few that are not. The colors that are on sale with extra 30% off eligible are dark forest (a beautiful pine green), golden sun (not my kind of color, but can see this a mood changer in the dark dreary winter), and my favorite heathered chestnut (very fallish reddish brown). 

I own this coat from last year and love it. The color was called heathered acorn, and I don't see a similar color offered this year. This coat did run a size smaller for J.Crew sizing. I usually wear 0P for J.Crew coat but had to size down to 00P for this coat.

Bric's Bellagio Luggages on Super Sale

I've been eying this nice little carry on luggage for a while ever since I saw it on Jean's blog. First time I saw it in person was when I was in Paris last Month and visited the Galeries Lafayette.  The original price there was around $100 less than in the US so I almost took one home.  Well, it turns out there was only 1 left and it came with a kink somehow. So we left without it. The luggage is well made and very light. Because it was made of the molded polycarbonate, the luggage is super bendable. The leather trim is my favorite part of the luggage. It's simply beautiful.  The SA in Galeries Lafayette also introduced me to the luggage cover specifically made for the Brics. They come in difference sizes.  If you are contemplating getting a larger one for check in and worry about it  being tortured on the conveyor belt, you might want to consider the cover.

For a limited time, Amazon is selling the 21" carry on version for $330 (That's $220 off the original price).  I have never seen this color combo on sale ever, so the price is pretty attractive to pass. Kicker is that I was not the one who found this deal. Hubby did. He knew I was in love with this spinner trunk. :)

Bric's Luggage Bellagio Ultra-Light 21 Inch Carry On Spinner Trunk ($440, use code HOLIDAYS25 to get additional 25% off)
large image view
There are many colors on sale for this price, and you can choose the color you like. Notice that the black on back version is on even further sale. Now $329.05 and with additional 25% off, this one is only $246.  That's less than half off the original price.  I personally like the trim to be in a contrasting color therefore am willing to pay extra for it.

The 27" and 30" ones are also on sale, but don't seem to be eligible for the further discount.

The Transparent covers are 25% off with HOLIDAYS25 and you can find many different sizes.

Thanksgiving Steals (updating through the weekend)

While browsing the web for Black Friday Sale, I noticed a few can't miss deals that I want to share with you.  This post will be updated through the end of the week.

Burberry London Edenborough mid-length trench coat - I love the flared silhouette that makes this coat so feminine.

Taller girls take note: this shearling trench that has such a pretty light grey color is on sale for 25% off.
ASOS - 30% off sitewide with code BLESSED. Free shipping and free returns on orders $40+.
Their oversized scarves are in style now.

*************  11/27 post **************
J.Crew Surprise sale starts 11/27 (Friday)
40% off regular priced styles (this is pretty amazing!) with code HOLIDAY.
I've always loved J.Crew outerwear, so I'm very happy to see some styles on sale.
This Wintress Puffer Coat with faux fur hood is a remake of the wintress puffer coat I bought last year without the fur hood. I love the one I got. It's very warm. It makes me look stylish while keeping warm. The cinch on the waist really helps making that happen.  I took a black in size xsp which has room for thick sweater underneath.
This Belted Zip Trench coat in wool melton caught my eyes while I was browing. I love the stable brown color.

Shopbop Buy More Save More Sale has been going on for a few days.  15% off $250+, 20% off $500+, 25% off $1000. Code GOBIG15.
I haven't bought anything yet, but eying these goodies.
Tory Burch York Buckle Tote in Luggage.  I have this tote in brown and use it exclusively for work. It's very functional and stylish. I haven't had the quality issue that some of the reviewers mentioned, but I have been only using it for around 3 months.  This tote typically doesn't get included in the Tory Burch official online sales.  I also have found a New Ivory version for half off with free shipping in case you are planning for next summer. :)

Bloomingdale's Take $25 off every $200 you spend sale.
Burberry Brit Brookesby Short Trench Coat in Navy (40% off). See this coat in red on me.

Anthropologie 25% off Everything with code SHOPTOIT.
Hubby recently ordered this mug for the whole family so we never have to argue whose much it is any more. I love it. The only minor gripe I have is the handle design doesn't allow for more than 1 finger through so holding it requires basically both hand since the mug is actually quite substantial in weight. The Golden Monogram version is also back in stock here. Do note though that due to the gold trims the mug is not microwave safe.  So for me even though it's quite lovely, the fact that I can't reheat my beverage easy is a showstopper. However, since it's cute sitting there on its own, you can use it for other purposes - like storing office supplies or make up brushes.
How cute is this!

I bought this 7-in-1 pressure cooker a year ago for $139 after it was being recommended to me by a highschool friend. I used it for a year now and would highly recommend.  It has many functions, and I use it mainly for porridge. Today only Amazon slashed its price to $78.5.  Grab it fast, because I am predicting that it will sell out very quickly.
Kate Spade 25% off entire purchase with code MERCI.
I love their jewelry selections. Aren't these happy emoji's studs cute? bracelet here.

****************11/26 post**************
I highly recommend this Steve Madden Troopa 2.0 Combat boots. I haven't seen these boots on such a big discount before (was $119, now $54.99), especially when all colors and sizes are available. Back in August, I bought my daughter the original Troopa and had to size up half a size for her.  She's worn it for many months now and love it to pieces. Here's what it looked like on her.  Troopa 2.0 seems to have added a layer of rubber on the bottom of the boots so that it has more traction.
The sizes of these boots are controversial.  So my suggestion is that you get more sizes to try and return the ones that don't fit (free shipping and returns on most sizes).  

Bobeau one-button fleece wrap cardigan (was $58, now $29.92 in 15 colors) 
I have the mink color in xsp and love it to pieces. I also have seen heather charcoal in person on an SA in Nordstrom before, and loved the look on her.  This is the first time I've seen this wrap go down this low in the neutral colors. So grab it while it lasts. I can wear both xxsp or xsp but kept the xsp for ease of layering.

Hunter Original Kids Rainboots (I wear women's US6, and I take a Kids' size 4M) ($21-$40)
Bric's Bellagio 21" wheeled carry on (49% off!!! only $279.99)
Ray-Ban Original Aviator 58mm sunglasses (30% off) I very rarely see Ray-Ban on sale, so used this opportunity to grab a Gold/Brown Mirror one.
Tory Burch Fleming Shoulder bag - 30% off! I own the light oak color and love it! It's so soft and feminine in person.
If you are looking for a statement making clutch, look no further. Saint Laurent Y leather clutch in lipstick red is on sale for 30% off!

Soufeel Charm Bracelet Review

The concept of charm bracelets has been around for a long time. The reason why it's been so popular is that you can create your own personal bracelet that tells a story about yourself. My mother-in-law has started collecting Pandora charms since last year.  She likes traveling, so with each country she travels to, she gets a charm to remember.  I thought it was quite a unique way to preserve memory. Pandora charms are in general quite pricey and seldom go on sale. It may well be out of the price range of a lot of people.  Soufeel provides the same quality charms at a much more affordable price range. 
When I opened the package that these charms and bracelet came in, my eyes were immediately drawn to the 3 sturdy boxes with cute light blue bows. The package also came with 3 nicely made gift bags in case you intend to give them as gifts. In fact, I think these charms are perfect gifts for any occasions.  
Soufeel charms are made from 925 sterling silver, 14K gold, rose gold, or Swarovski crystals.  They can fit pandora bracelets so if you already have a pandora bracelet, adding charms becomes easier with these Soufeel charms at a more reasonable price. 

For review, I picked out the 14K Gold Clover Charm, 14K Gold & Sterling Silver Primrose Pendant (used as charm) and August Birthstone Swarovski Crystal Charm.  I have to say that I'm absolutely amazed by the look and the quality of these charms. They look simply stunning and have similar quality if not better than the pandora counterpart. I highly recommend this company and suggest that you give them a try.
Soufeel offers free shipping worldwide with orders over $50 and 365 day return and exchange guarantee. Now that's confidence behind their product.  They are launching lots of summer new arrivals on the website and for vickysdailyfashion readers, they are offering 5% off code Blog5 for any order.

Happy shopping!

What's in My Mind - Europe Travel links, $99 flight to Paris

Burberry Brit Dalesbury Quilted Down Jacket 50% off in Bright Military Red.
Burberry Brit Cornsdale Channel Quilt Qown Jacket with Hood in black. $596.25

******************** original post ******************
Hello my lovely readers! I decided to do an experimental random thoughts update post to talk about ... stuff.  Not just fashion, clothes, sales, but things that I have experienced in my life, things that have helped me in any way, things that I care about, things that I learned, etc.  The reason I was contemplating this was because when I learned something cool I always thought, wow, wish I knew this earlier. So I thought, why not share it on the blog so others can benefit too.  So here we go, in no particular order.

1. This video cracked me up! How to be instagram famous.  I stumbled across it earlier today.  How many of you can relate? :)

2. Due to the low euro this year, lots of people from the US decided to take vacations to Europe. I have since read so many blog posts that are just phenomenal.  Dogeared here for reference. 
-- EuroTrip: London, Paris, Venice, Rome.  Great coverage of her impression of the 4 cities by my friend Cee.  Very clever and useful overview.
-- Packing for an European Spring Vacation. Again by Cee. I'll sure be referencing it when I need to pack for my Paris trip in October. Well, probably quite different weather wise,
-- European VAT refund + US Customs - great capture of the experience. I felt had lived through it. Thanks, Cee. Global BlueVAT refund calculator.
-- Another set of packing posts by Sydney: part I, Part II, Part III. Her shopping and VAT refund experience in Paris/Rome.
-- When In Paris and When In Rome - travel posts by Sydney.  Beautiful pictures!
-- I love this article about Parisians and sneakers and this post that gives you a seasonal run down for Paris. Other countries are linked too.

3. Recently I have been addicted to a new blog I found that posts ways to save money on travel. I have this post to thank for for booking an unreal priced trip to Paris in October. ~$350 per person for round trip fare from Boston to Paris via Iceland. Bryan and I decided to treat ourselves an anniversary gift - 17 years.

4. Japanese coffee house chain Ogawa opened its first international store in Boston. I've heard so many good things about it. Next time I'm in town, I will sure give it a try. Just look at the latte art ... 

5. I am done with my Nordstrom Anniversary shopping. Here's a list of items I purchased and kept. Some items are already sold out, but I'm linking in case it pops back up again. Prices go back up Monday, August 3. 
-- Tory Burch 54mm Polarized Cat Eye Sunglasses. Got both black and spotty tortoise, and keeping the black. Even though they are the same style, the black and the tortoise fit differently. For me, the black is a clear winner for both look and fit.
-- Onyx Half d'Orsay Pointy Toe Pump in Leopard.  I sized down half a size for this one. on me here.
-- Onyx Half d'Orsay Pointy Toe Pump in Moss green Suede. I took my usual size (size 6). Need heel grip. 
-- Olson Pointy Toe Studded T-Strap Flat in pale pink leather. I got a size 5.5 (sized down half size) and decided to wait for the waitlisted size 6 to come before deciding which size to keep.

Sale Alert: Madewell 40% off Sale Items and Free Shipping

This is one of the best sales I've seen on Madewell online.  Free shipping with no minimum purchase and 40% extra off on sale items with EXTRA40.

I've recently picked up this setlist pullover top in stripe in store and love it. The fabric is heavy so you can wear it into fall. Very nice looking neckline. The color is amazing too.  I picked up the xs in store and felt that it was the right amount of slouchiness on me.  It shrank a bit after wash.  The shirt length in the back is longer than front, which makes it easier to wear leggings. Highly recommend.
I also picked up the les îles de la société tee in xs. Nice soft cotton tee with nautical vibe.

My other picks:
Birkenstock Madrid Eva Sandals - runs big
Kimono romper - only $30 after discount. So cute.
Legging jeans in arctic blue - $24 after discount. Was $98.5. Highly rated. 
the mccarren tote in desert camel - $60 for a real leather tote. adjustable strap.
