L. Avenue | Amazon Black Friday Fashion

November 24, 2017

L ave and Amazon

Continuing with our L. Avenue Fashion Finds on Amazon…

With Thanksgiving behind us, we are ready to deck the halls with boughs of velvet and sequins! Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the largest shopping days of the entire year. We have rounded up some fashion steals to get you through this holiday season that can be at your house in 2 days with Amazon prime.

I know we are all ready for our holiday parties, but I love Christmas pajamas for the fam on Christmas morning and if you don’t snag early, you’re likely to miss out. These were my girls Christmas morning pajamas last year and I love that they come with 12 Day of Christmas book. This year I’m thinking some fun for the whole fam…I wonder if Bret would be on board with this stripe getup? Hmmm. I’m kinda loving these for my mistletoes.

Moving to night, I have found you can pair any cute sequin top with leather or velvet and make it looks fantastic without the higher price tags. I love this sequin cami and this sequin cami (both $28) paired with these cropped coated denim  this black velvet blazer under $100 here and these block heels steal version here. This chic look is perfect for any holiday soiree you have! By the way, Im equally loving and this velvet cami and this one, which you can both pair with cropped denim, black and black heel and perfectly on point!

Shopbop Sale Begins

November 21, 2017



Let the sales begin! Starting today through November 26th Shopbop is having their Buy More, Save More sale with code MORE17. This is the perfect opportunity to snag your festive holiday dress on sale, as well as any gifts for family or friends this holiday season. Shopbop houses so many designers, home decor and the perfect hostess gifts. I’m excited to practice some shopping math thanks to Shopbop!

I think it is so fun to dress festively for the holiday season. I love the assortment of reds, greens golds, sequins and plaids. So whether Im dressing up for a holiday soiree or down for a lunch or dinner I want to pop my outfit with festive holiday colors.

Last year, I bought a festive plaid ruffle top see post here that I paid with denim and leather pants. Secretly, I’m still loving this top, so some of you may see it in the rotation this holiday season. That said, I definitely want a new top and/or dress to complete my holiday look.  And if I can snag one at a sale price, then the more the merrier!

I am loving the selection of red and green lace dresses. Lace has been on trend for a few seasons now and definitely a look I gravitate towards a lot. I love the romantic and femininity of lace and Christmas is a romantic time of year. I’m also loving the selection of red and green tops, which can be dressed down with denim and up with leather or sequin skirts for an easy and chic festive look. Ive been eyeing velvet pumps for a while now and haven’t pulled the trigger, but I think this sale is the perfect opportunity to snag a pair – and on a sale. I love mixing different textures and velvet is everywhere and so on trend Fall. Velvet pumps, paired with leather pants and a red lace blouse and you have a perfectly festive and on trend look.

No look is completed with a bag and Im loving Santi’s selection of sequin bags! Any of these clutch is sure to make a statement against any holiday look you’ve got.

Some of our faves brands to try to take advantage of during a sale Tibi, Vince, Ulla Johnson, Caroline Constas, McGuire, Levi’s, Farragamo, and Stuart Weitzman.

Happy Shopping!!
