If you’re like me, or how I used to be, Black Friday shopping was a tradition to do the day after Thanksgiving. My mom and I would get up every morning the day after and start our Christmas shopping, but since being in the retail and fashion world, I’ve come to learn a few things that most retailers will not tell you. Those supposed “Black Friday” deals and sales, really aren’t anything special. Yes, maybe in the past they used to be this whole big hoopla of massive sales, but since the economic plunge several years ago, this in turn has caused retail to take huge profit losses.
With these loss of sales came the need to keep their customers spending money, even in a rough economy. So, what did they do? With the exception of some luxury brands, several retailers started to rethink strategies on how to maintain sales goals. In came sale after sale, especially with big retailers like Sears, JC Penny, Kohls, and others. That trend has continued throughout the last several years. We as consumers, tend to think that the only way to get really good deals on clothing items, is to wait for the sales like Veteran’s Day, Columbus Day etc. But did you know that most retailers, have sales consistently?
With the Christmas season approaching, it’s time for the oh so famous “Black Friday” shopping day in which retailers tend to lure consumers into thinking they’re getting the lowest price on that item they’ve been wanting. But “Black Friday” is really not the day to get those best deals. Retailers such as J Crew, Zara, TopShop Nordstrom, H&M and more are consistently having clearance sales throughout the year. Think about it, they have to make room for new merchandise and the only way to do that is clear out the old. I’ve put together a few tips and links to some sales that are currently in progress to make your holiday shopping a little easier and hopefully avoid the massive crowds at the mall.
1. If you can’t get to your favorite store in the mall such as Bloomingdales, H&M, or Victorias Secret and others often then check their website for sales and signup to receive email updates. This way you’ll be informed of any sales offers they are promoting for the week. I guarantee there is always a promotion they are running.
2. Online shopping is probably everyone’s favorite place to shop, there are so many deals that retailers offer online only so, again, be diligent on signing up for email updates.
So, there you have it, my own personal tips to help you find that best deal for all of your Christmas shopping needs. Below are just a few of my favorite retailers, but always shop around.

The little sister to J Crew has finally come to the Sacramento area. Until yesterday, the only way to shop at Madewell was to either travel to bay area or online. The store opened it’s doors at Arden Fair Mall and from what I hear, there is one slated to open in the Roseville Galleria Mall. J Crew has invested millions in developing the Madewell label and has taken the heritage Americana angle with the clothing, especially in the denim department. If you don’t know much about Madewell, take a look at some of their adorable clothing below, and if you want to stop in and shop, visit them at Arden Fair Mall.

People of the surrounding Sacramento area, gird your loins!! Zara, the Spanish clothing retailer has posted construction documents online with the City of Roseville. This means they plan to build a two-level store early next year at the Westfield Galleria at Roseville. I was told this a while back by an employee of another store in the mall, but wasn’t sure when all of this was to take place.
They have yet to formally announce it, but this just brings such pure unadulterated joy! This is just really good news because the closet Zara store to us is in the San Francisco and it’s just pure torment to do that 1hr and 30 min drive which at times could end up being a 2 or 3 hour drive depending on traffic. Zara is known for their on trend clothing, both casual and dressy.
Not to mention the prices, I think I could always walk out with something from there. So women of the city, if you love Zara as much as I do, or haven’t had the pleasure of shopping in one, just wait for some pure jubilant shopping. Keep your eye out for more updates here.
All of these looks and more can be found online at Zara.com

Didn’t we see this coming? I know I sure did, I mean come on, this is one of THE most coveted collections H&M has done since Isabel Marant. I was in Silicon Valley today and was hoping to get the chance to go to the H&M there because I knew the San Francisco store would have the collection. But It’s probably a good thing because I don’t think I would have had any chance on picking up any piece of the collection. Hopefully I’ll be able to get something from this hot collection.
Gird your loins!! This is going to be spectacular!! Designer steals at phenomenal pricing? Vestiaire Collective is a French market place such as ebay that will sell pre-owned designer clothing and launches today!! I am so excited to find treasures such as Isabel Marant and more for discounted prices. Read on for more information and see what treasures you can find.

I have many pleasures of writing for several publications and I just love to share my obsession of fashion with anyone who’ll listen. IndieBlush Magazine is one of those publications who is not only local, but their message they convey to the Sacramento and surrounding area is one of enrichment to the community. An enrichment to where they bring everything that is “indie” or independent. Celebrating the independent store owner, photographer, wine maker etc. Which brings me to my exciting moment, as a contributing writer of the fashion section, IndieBlush is allowing me to use my love of fashion and styling talents to be the coordinator of the this amazing show in which is called, Elements.
Elements will be a fashion experience like no other. As you find out more about this magazine and the indie movement you’ll notice the involvement of local clothing boutiques and designers as the main focus. In addition to the fashion, there will be a preview of the Dysphoria Project. A Project that aimed to spread the awareness of Body Dysphoria. Everyday we as consumers are marketed and advertised into the fashion industry and at times made to feel less about ourselves and our bodies so that we will buy a product.Body Dysmorphic Disorder are 49% male and 51% female. Being a female myself, there are times when I too feel less about my body and that if I purchase a particular product, it will make me feel better about myself. But it is a temporary euphoria. The Elements fashion show will help the community see more about this disorder. I am so happy an proud to be a part of this production and it will only lead to more productions for the creative magazine in the future.

As a skinny jean lover, it’s been the only type of jean that I’ve worn for the past several years and I honestly can’t see myself wearing bootleg denim anytime soon. I recently read an article where they talked about how the skinny jean is on it’s way out, except for a certain style of skinny jean. The black distressed and ripped jean.
Now, I’m the first to agree, yes, this jean is totally in and I can be the first to attest that I personally love them. But to say the indigo, grey, and white skinny will not be the jean of choice soon, is really preposterous. In my opinion they will always remain a staple in my closet and should remain in yours as well. It’s just a jean that you can dress up or down, it’s like the Thelma to the Louise. They’re just so comfortable, which is why they will not be leaving the fashion scene anytime soon. Take a look at some great skinnies I found from Zara, Barneys, Revolve Clothing and more.
