The Fab Life & J.Crew Spring Shopping Event!

I’m excited to announce that THIS IS HAPPENING AGAIN:

I know we’re still buried under snow but there’s always room in the closet for spring clothes. At this time of year, I’m just about done with my winter clothes and while I know I still have another month or two to be wearing sweaters – looking (and purchasing) spring clothes gets me ready for warmer weather. We are going with a “girls’ night out” theme for this event and the store will have savory/sweet crepes, refreshments and chair massages from Phoenix Rising Therapeutic Massage. What’s better than shopping and massages and a little help putting some spring outfits together? The store will be offering a special discount of 25% off your purchase of $125 but any better existing discounts in store will apply. AND if you’re a student or a teacher – bring your ID and you can receive an extra 15% off. The J.Crew at the Walden Galleria Mall features Men’s, Women’s and Crewcuts so you can peruse for yourself or the kids. You can check out the Facebook event page or email fablifeforever@gmail.com to RSVP. I hope to see you there!!

Holiday Ready featuring the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, USA

Hi! The clock is ticking down to the final stretch of holiday prep. As is the case every year, the weekends fill up quickly with holiday parties and while I often think I have a lot of time to get ready (and find things to wear), somehow I’m left the week of the holiday rushing around tying up last minute items. Parties and social events aside, I think the holiday ready items in my closet could cover a month of work and parties, yet every year I am adding more sparkly, lacy, metallic items to my closet (I. Can’t. Help. It.) Two items that I have been wanting to add to my holiday rotation are a lace dress and a fur vest.

Outfit details (all c/o Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, USA): Dress: Banana Republic Factory Lace Sheath Dress ($109.99) / Boots: French Connection Monay Booties ($89.99) / Purse: Banana Republic Factory Quilted Shoulder Bag / Vest: Michael Kors (via Saks off Fifth) $144.99 / Bracelet and Necklace: Saks Off Fifth

One of my other favorite stores at the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, USA is the Banana Republic Factory Store. They always have an excellent selection of items and I am familiar with a lot of the retail offerings so I like seeing the same styles in different colors or options than what I’m seeing at the retail store. I can always count on finding key items and I wasn’t surprised when I found this fantastic lace sheath. I like the versatility of the dress and I would wear a black cardigan or blazer and tights to work and swap out the blazer for a more festive fur vest or cashmere wrap for evening events. Admittedly, dressing in cute holiday garb can be difficult in the Northeast and I am always trying to find ways to wear all of the fun short-sleeved and sleeveless items and not freeze to death. So, while I’m not wearing stockings in this photo, I would definitely opt for tights in this climate. However, I do find once I’m happily tucked in to my party with a cocktail, I always end up shedding my long sleeve layer, so I suppose the short-sleeved dress isn’t that far fetched.

The Fab Life & J.Crew Holiday Shopping Event!

Hi! I am excited to announce that THIS IS HAPPENING:

j-crew-invite

Imagine my surprise when I was shopping in my local J.Crew store in Buffalo, NY a few weeks ago and I was approached by one of the Sales Associates who told me that she followed me on Instagram and asked if I was interested in hosting a shopping party at the store. As a once upon a time J.Crew employee in college and loyal shopper for years, I’m always excited to share my love of J.Crew and styling tips with my followers, friends and family and now you can come to the store to get the experience! For the event, the store will be offering a special discount of 20% off your purchase of $125. However, as there are often better deals going on in-store, the better of the discounts will apply. AND if you’re a student or a teacher – bring your ID and you can receive an extra 15% off. The J.Crew at the Walden Galleria Mall features Men’s, Women’s and Crewcuts so you can peruse for yourself or the kiddos! They will have some local treats and refreshments and I will be there to help you with all of your holiday shopping needs.

Please check out the Facebook event page or email me at fablifeforever@gmail.com to RSVP. I look forward to seeing you there!
