Friday’s Favorite Things - 12.6.13

1. Stadium-Cloth Boulevard Trench @ J.Crew
Last week's sales sent me on a shopping frenzy, online of course!  One of my favorite items and best investment is this Belted Trench coat by J.Crew.  This coat is made with Italian wool, it adds warmth without the bulk and works well in temperatures in the late 20s to 40s.  Leave it open, button it up, or belt it, either way you'll look chic.  Luckily on Black Friday, I got this coat 30% off, but typically it runs for ~ $365 @ J.Crew (deep violet)Photo (11)

2. Double-Zip Sweater in Colorblock @ J.Crew
And another J.Crew item, tis’ my favorite store this season.  When it comes to sweaters I prefer those with prints to prevent my wardrobe from getting too drab.  I adore the side zipper on this sweater with added details by the shoulders.  Again, 30% off, but goes for ~ $98 @ J.Crew (natural acorn)08422_KP1857_m

3. My love… food!
Food makes me SO happy, especially trying new dishes and experiencing new restaurants.  New York City really boasts some of the world’s BEST food.  It is the ultimate paradise for a foodie.  When the weather is cool, and not freezing this time of year, I can’t help but dine out.  Here are some of my favorites this past week…
     Organic Black Bean Hummus w/Roasted Peppers & Avocado Tartine @ Le Pain Quotidien
     Pescado (fish) Tacos @ Dos Caminos
     Mushroom Quiche @ Choc-O-Pain  (downtown jersey city)
     Mango Margarita @ Dos Caminos
     Belgian Brownie @ Le Pain Quotidien photo (14)

TELL ME: Did you take advantage of any Black Friday sales?  If so, what did you buy?   What’s the best thing you ate all week?

  1. Love that coat on you...the color is gorgeous. We went to J Crew and while I didn't buy anything, Ali finally bought some decent pants. The sale was pretty good.

    I also went shopping but of course nothing I bought was on sale. That always happens to me somehow.

    Love LPQ. One of my favorite places no matter what city / country I'm in!

    1. Thanks Ameena.. I love the color and coat too. 30% is the max I've seen off at JCrew. I know, that always happens, we end up buying stuff not on sale on Black Friday. Yeah, I really like Le Pain Q, too!

  2. Agree with Ameena - the color of that coat looks great on you!

    And I did a little bit of shopping but nothing crazy. I usually find better deals in January so just waiting for that now!

    1. Thanks Parita.. :-).
      I think for me, I usually most of my "out of control" shopping on Black Friday and maybe after Christmas. January, I'm back to savings mode. :-)

  3. My my, look at the gorgeous you. Loving your diva hair.
    The jacket is definitely a statement piece. I love J Crew sweaters, they feel like butter and fit so well. I got a few in Anthropologie and boy am I glad for the sale there.

    1. Awww.. thanks Asha.. you're very kind. The jacket is definitely a statement piece, I love it.. plus keeps me really warm. J.Crew needs to make more sweaters for petites, I find the regular size is too long on me for certain items. I know, Anthropologie is a place I only shop when there is a sale. :-)

  4. I agree with the others - that coat looks great. We tend to avoid Black Friday - too crowded! Plus we always buy most things online. Fun post - thanks.

  9. Love the new look of your website. The site looks very chic and fresh. I love that shade of blue for a coat. It makes me want to get a beautiful blue coat to lift me up. I definitely need to try the mango margarita and fish tacos next time at Dos Caminos JC
