Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a shopper was stirring, no clicks of a mouse.
Bright colored stockings were wrapped up with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
Fashionistas were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Prada danced in their heads.
And I in my fancy new Kenneth Cole cap
Had just taken it off for a long winter's nap.
When at my computer arose such a clatter
I slipped on my slippers to see what was the matter.
Away to my laptop I flew like a flash,
Threw on my bathrobe and Ralph Lauren sash.
Stores carried less inventory to avoid clearance,
So recession sales I did not expect appearance
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a series of sales to bring Christmas fashion cheer.
More rapid than eagles their price slashes came
With stores so familiar I knew them by name:
Now Target! Now Urban! Now Zappos and Bloomies!
On Etsy! On Levis! On Nine West and Barneys!
To the best of the sale rack let's go to the mall.
Now sale away, sale away, inventory all!
And into my inbox came emails galore
With special sale codes for every store
Guaranteeing free shipping and 10% off,
And buy one get two free to get you to shop.
The websites, how they twinkled, their webpage so merry,
With cashmere now $50 and coats down $170,
And jewelry that last week was too overpriced
Now sat in my web cart, each looking so nice.
I spoke not a word, but went straight to my work
And filled up my credit card, then turned with a jerk
I could not believe all the deals I had grabbed,
I imagined myself looking oh-so-so fab!
I looked over my carts to make sure I was done
And smiled for having had such shopping fun.
And as I checked out I exclaimed in delight
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! AND TO ALL A GOOD TIGHT!

Ann Taylor Loft is having a great special on their website where they highlight gifts for under $25.00. I say buy yourself a present in the form of this v-neck cable knit sweater.
It comes in lots of different colors, but I heart green, even though I have featured the red in the photo. Every wardrobe needs a healthy number of basics, but just because something is a basic doesn't mean it has to be boring. This is a cute, well made sweater that needs some jewelry and a sleek pair of slacks or a pencil skirt. Or maybe just jeans on a Sunday afternoon. You decide, it's a basic!

Why? It solves the black/brown problem! I am of the opinion that you cannot wear a brown bag with a black outfit, and vice versa (although there is an exception made for the signature Louis Vuitton pattern, to which these rules do not apply!) A gold bag goes with black AND brown outfits. If you want to invest in a new every day bag, I would consider this Kate Spade tote. It's leather, it's gold, it's well made and, most importantly, fashionable :)
Price: $235 (originally $395)
