Thanksgiving Weekend in Phoenix

My mom and I had a wonderful weekend in Phoenix for Thanksgiving weekend.  My Great Aunt Bertha turned 100 years old so we went to her Centennial party on Saturday.  My cousin Debbie (Great Aunt Bertha's granddaughter) had her first child, and the party also honored her baby.  They had four generations of family there.  It was such a wonderful experience.  Thanksgiving was spent with my favorite uncle.  All day Friday (which was Black Friday) and Saturday during the day was spent at the incredible Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall and Biltmore Fashion Park.  My mom wanted to update her wardrobe a bit so I helped her with some new blouses, a beautiful structured jacket, and some fashion jewelry.  Mostly all were purchased from Macy's with unbelievably awesome discounts.  We had such a nice time shopping there.  It was just the two of us, it felt so relaxing not to have any responsibilities for five days!

*The Nine West red croc handbag was such a steal I have to share.  It was originally $69.00.  I had a 20% off coupon, and I was going to be happy with that price.  The sign showed it was also on sale for 25% off.  I guess it was marked down to a lower price on top of that I didn't know about because the lady told me it was $23.90!!  Gotta love Macy's sales and coupons!!

Last Chance Store is a Nordstrom company store that is one step beneath Nordstrom Rack.  There are only two in the country:  Phoenix and Miami.  Most of the merchandise is pretty beat up, but I had to check out this ultra clearance Nordstrom store.  I didn't find anything worthwhile, unfortunately.  Perhaps if I had more time I could have found something.  I looked at every size 7 shoe hoping to find something Cole Haan.

For Saturday night at Aunt Bertha's centennial party I wore my Kelly by Clinton Kelly dress.  I styled it the exact same way so I didn't have my mom take photos of this outfit.


  1. You look great in all the pictures, but the first one is to die for!!! I want that Target dress! You look gorgeous in it. And you got it on clearance? SCORE. The boots and silver chain belt with it are perfect-wow!

  2. I LOVE that dress. It is so flattering on you!! Sounds like you had a great time!

  3. Lisa Marie,

    Thanks for your sweet words. Here is the link to the sweater dress, unfortunately it is sold out online. You might be able to find it at the store using the numbers found in the Additional Information section under the descriptions of the dress.{Large%20%2812-14%29{&searchRank=target104545&id=Merona%20Cable%20Sweater%20Dress%20Brown&node=1041790&searchSize=30&searchPage=1&searchNodeID=1041790&searchBinNameList=subjectbin%2Cprice%2Ctarget_com_primary_color-bin%2Ctarget_com_size-bin%2Ctarget_com_brand-bin&frombrowse=0

  4. Joy, thank you, we had an incredibly wonderful time.

  5. Such gorgeous outfits! I must admit, I'm so jealous of your beautiful boot collection. With my wide calves I've pretty much given up hope of ever owning any truly beautiful boots.

    And what a fun deal on the Nine West bag! You're a shopper after my own heart!

  6. I bet you will find some boots that fit right, keep looking! I never used to wear boots much until this year.

    I love to shop and when it's a great deal - even better!
