I learned many lessons while working in retail such including but not limited to:

  • Whatever you’re looking for is probably not in the back
  • Store closings are not just a free-for-all but can be very sad
  • You truly can’t please everyone
  • The customer does think they’re always right even if they are really, really not
  • There is really very little reason to buy anything full price

I honestly didn’t even realize it before I worked at Pier One but there is a) always some kind of sale or clearance and b) a good chance that the piece you love is going to hit it eventually. The only circumstance where this might not be the case is holiday specific items. We had people furious at us that we ran out of special edition ornaments by Christmas Eve but what are ya gonna do?

As far as clothes, I rarely, if ever, buy clothes full price. I stalk and I wait to catch my prey. If I miss it, I just means I don’t need it anyway! I haven’t been buying clothes much at all, to be honest but I might consider a little Nordstrom splurge for their fall sale. I’m definitely taking a peek for Christmas shopping, but I want to share the pieces I love for me.

Halloween is over and November is here! Last night was kind of funny- Kendall started a journey back again to Mississippi for drill and because it was Tuesday most of my friends were either meh about Halloween or had after work plans. SO I put on a onesie and headed to Chipotes for a $3 burrito bol and then it took me three hours to write this blog post because tired and bol coma.

So here we are. Happy November!

the carolove november wish list

My friend was wearing MAC Turquatic Fragrance at a birthday happy hour last week. It smelled AMAZE and I stalked it like the night I got home.

Surprise surprise, my Charlotte Russe perforated booties are totally falling apart after a year and change. Time for an upgrade- perhaps Vince Camuto Kamey Perforated Booties.

I don’t know if I could ever have enough fuzz in my life. I have a great leopard (faux, obvs.) fur coat- pink fuzz may be next on my list, like this MELODY Faux-Fur Coat.

Seeing as how we watched Strangers Things 2 in, what, 2 days? This Netflixing Definition Sweatshirt seems appropes.

I’m not a huge makeup buff, really. But that doesn’t stop me from eyeing pretty things like the new line from MAC, especially the MAC Snow Ball Face Powder.

Holidays are coming (YUP! ALREADY!) which means it’s like 2 months worth of party paws. Check this Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Color in Candy Shop.

Kinda just want this ALTERNATIVE Camo Sweater Dress to wear with my thigh high boots.

I’ve been doing some research on chakras and while I’m usual drawn to all things root chakra, it seems like my sacral chakra in in a little bit of imbalance. I feel like I should try 2nd Chakra Balancing Oil.

These Tassel Earrings look a helluva lot like a brand we all know and love… but they’re under $10.

I’m already feelin’ the season’s chapped lips. Enter VASELINE Limited Edition Pink Bubbly Lip Therapy. (Incidentally, I found this one a Millennial Pink list)

What do you have planned for this November?

Remember last week or whenever how it got nice? And then it freaking SNOWED at the end of the week? And it wasn’t even nice snow it was gobs of slush. Gross. I was so ready for the week to end already and that was just the ice(ing) on the cake.

Anyway, I guessss it’s ok because it gave me a chance (maybe my last one of the season) to rock my Topshop from Nordstrom leopard fur coat (last seen here). I wanted to be both cozy and cute as I slid into the weekend and I think I got this.

Now, let’s talk weekend essentials. You know I love a good backpack, but the one I got last year was a little small. Hi gorgeous Eddie Borgo for Target Backpack in Thunder. The backpack so nice that my mom bought me the same one. And if you’re constantly on the go like me, you probably have a snack or two in your bag. When Myprotein asked if I could try some of their products, I jumped at the chance. I ordered Protein Cookies in white almond, Protein Chox in caramel nut, and their 100% peanuts peanut butter. I’ll be honest, the cookies were a little too almond-y for me, it was almost overpowering. And I could really taste whatever extra protein was in it. But the chox were great! They taste like a heartier snickers and are definitely better for your if you’re like me and have a 3:30 in the afternoon chocolate craving. The peanut butter? On apples, one of my favorite snacks/ deserts.

How do you get ready for the weekend?

I think the worst part of seasonal transitions (besides the allergies) is trying to figure out how the heck to dress. When I put this outfit on last week, it wasn’t because it was perfect planned. It was a happy accident after standing in front of my closet in silence for approximately 20 hours and trying on several million combinations or skirts and tops and tights and boots. That may be an exaggeration- but this was at least the third outfit that I attempted. I was pretty happy with it.

The coat actually made its debut last year, but I upgraded the buttons to a tortie/ gold combo and it just feels way more lush. If there has been an upside to this drawn-out winter, it’s that I’m actually getting to wear the coats that I couldn’t when, you know, it was 75 degrees on Christmas.

I have some really awesome news, you guys!  I’M GOING TO NEW YORK FASHION WEEK! I had briefly thought about going a while back, but the idea seemed overwhelming. I’ll admit it- I’m really not a fashion blogger, but a style & lifestyle blogger. I blog about the things I like that work for me in hope of inspiring other women to love and cultivate their own style.

But then I got a very unexpected invite to the Yuna Yang show, and everyone was basically like, go, Caro, go! I really never expected myself to ever get an invite to a NYFW show, and that really feels like a huge honor to me. I definitely got some anxiety of thinking I must have been invited by mistake or something because I’m not a big blogger and usually am afraid of not being good enough- but I think to get to that point I need to jump at chances like this one- right? So my RSVP has been sent and I’m goooooing!

As of this moment, I’m not sure what my plans are or who I’m going with, if anyone. Any tips from past attendees would be appreciated. (or if you’re in the DC area and heading up around the 11th, let me know!)

This is probably the kind of thing I’ll wear- simple with pops of color (and likely leopard). I toyed with the idea of going totally street style- but I don’t want to look cartoon-ish, so unless I can be styled by Kelly Dempsey, I’ll leave that to the pros and go with what I know.
