Glitter Maxi + Cyber Monday Steals!

Instead of overwhelming you with a million things on sale for Cyber Monday, I wanted to spotlight one extra special item I’m obsessed with. This glitter maxi is exactly why I love H&M—they have great pieces, and every once in a while, you find something fantastic that looks much more expensive than it actually is. This dress is a prime example. It would turn heads, and everyone would wonder where you got it.

H and M Long Sleeve Glitter Maxi Dress Black Fall Winter 2015

The long sleeve—you know I’m all about a sleeve!—perfectly offsets the V-neck and slit. And the understated sparkle makes it appropriate for holiday parties and special events like weddings. Depending on your industry, you could even rock this baby to work. Turn it into a maxi skirt of sorts with something more casual like a faux-fur vest or slouchy sweater thrown on top.

This dress is 30% off! today at H&M—only $41.99!—plus you get free shipping with code 3030. It’s an ideal staple to see you through December, January and beyond. I recommend these gorgeous black suede Nine West pumps—also majorly on sale!—to go with it. Both the dress and shoes run true-to-size.

The Pile Coat

This pile coat reminds me of a teddy bear in the best way. The cozy texture and cocoon shape are a perfect combination as we race towards winter weather. I’m a fan of the oversized collar and the idea of popping it up so it’s even more pronounced. I also like the ’70s feel that’s minimalist and modern at the same time.

H and M Black Pile Coat Winter 2015

It comes in camel, but the black looks more elegant and expensive to me. The black is also more versatile for December and January’s endless list of events. Wrap yourself up for weekend brunch or toss it over your shoulders for holiday parties with a killer body-con dress (I suggest this must-have from Topshop; I wear it in a size 4).

On sale! for only $89.99, this coat packs style, comfort and a reasonable price tag. Really, what more could you want?!
