I am a Stay-At-Home mom in Orange County, CA. The purpose of this blog is to share my outfits with the intent of being fashionable yet age-appropriate. I am a 40+ fashion blogger. I copy pieces I see on TV. I'm really, really good at finding excellent deals on quality brands. I diligently try to find the best deals and promo codes, so the prices shown on links are not necessarily the prices I paid. Say no to frumpy clothes.

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!!
Black Friday shopping outfit
Studio M circle print empire waist tee (wish the side was pulled down properly) - Macy's
Lunch at Neiman Marcus Cafe Scottsdale Fashion Square
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.
