{STYLE} Holiday Dressing

It's no secret that I prefer my shopping to take place in the comfort of my own home, usually while I'm luxuriating on my couch under a fuzzy, faux fur blanket and a cup of hot cocoa in my hand, (this may or may not be a dramatization of my real life). Even some of my favorite stores (like Topshop) are too much to handle in person; something about the way-too-loud music and the throngs of tourists in Soho just take the fun out of shopping. Of course, the British high street is too much for me to resist - so I take to the internet with a keen eye and a dictionary to help me crack the code on all those fancy names for fabrics. Plus, I've watched enough Extreme Couponing on TLC to know there are coupons for clothing, but they certainly don't exist in any physical form that you can carry into Topshop or H&M, as far as I'm aware. 

Enter the world of the online promo code. I'm no stranger to them, as you may have gathered from here and here. It is one of the very, very best things about being able to shop online. Huntress & gatherer that I am, you can not just comparison shop while toggling between tabs, but find discount codes to garner deep, deep savings. When RetailMeNot challenged me to put together a holiday look for $150, I knew I'd have no problem getting it done.

Skirt from Topshop (608851261237406 for 10% off your entire order), H&M Black Jersey Top (0560 for 20% off one item), Gap Wool Moto Jacket (GAPEARLY for 40% off, plus I redeemed Gapcash, making the jacket less than $40!) Pink Necklace and Chandelier Necklace from BaubleBar (CYBER20 for 20% off sitewide), Shoes by Loeffler Randall (already had these! A little cheat), Clutch from eBay

  1. wow! gorgeous skirt!

  2. whoa love that skirt! topshop does some amazing skirts.

  3. hhahhaa the tourists in soho!!!! 20 years ago nobody knew soho, now it is the new 5th AVE. OMG that skirt, i have to check it out right away! how extremely amazing is that one! Oh and you look amazing wearing grey, never thought that grey could be so girly and feminine and gorgeous! okay, now it is official, you can turn uniting into something stunning and gorgeous, probably even a potato sack!

  4. Great ensemble! I was mad at the GAP for selling out of the hot pink color of your jacket but I didn't even realize that they had it in gray, so maybe I'm not mad anymore. :)

    The skirt is amazingly beautiful. You really do have an eye for fashion and creating great outfits.
    Thank you for being such an inspiration :-)


  6. Oh, I am loving that skirt and jumper!

  7. love the skirt!

  8. Too bad Topshop stops at size 12! As a solid size 20, no way could I ever shop there!

  9. I totally disagree there! I'm obviously not a size 12, but I have room in this skirt; it's lined with jersey up to the waistband. A lot of their pieces are either elasticated, run big, or are just plain oversized. I shop there often, as does Gabi (, and we're both definitely bigger than a 12 :)

  10. such a beautiful skirt!
