Guess what readers, time to kiss the Destin outlet shopping extravaganza goodbye! No more elbowing sunkissed 14 year olds wearing halter-tops and Rocketdogs to get to the latest ruffled top and cardigan ensemble. As of today, J.Crew is now one of the first big brands to start selling it’s factory clothing online! Gotta act now though, the site is only “open” Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays (we think a cute marketing ploy). Check it out!
Thanks for the tip Reader egray!

Travel to a new city and there is tons to read about all the new fun, cozy, restaurants to discover. Shops, however, can be more of a challenge.

Shop therapy came to be! December 10th and time to get serious if you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping, or at least mentally finished. We always recommend having a few backup gifts, just in case some cute neighbor or new friend surprises you with an unexpected gift. Call us materialistic, but we love a little name brand treat we wouldn’t buy for ourselves. Lil name brand makes something small a lil more chic. Check out these Trish McEvoy candles! Holiday version is only $17.50 each from Nordstrom (regular candle $48.00 each) and with a $1,000,000 aroma!

dum dum dadum dum da da da da dadum…It’s Black Friday!! The biggest shopping day of the year. If you’re just recovering from you 4:30 am Target run, hope you got the best $5 toaster out there. If fighting with soccer moms in sweatsuits isn’t really your thing, check out all the great Black Friday deals you can find online!

Sometimes things are just overpriced. Well, rephrase. Everything is overpriced. But sometimes certain products take it too far. In decorating our new home, we’ve had the interns scouring Atlanta and the internet for a simple sisal rug. A 1400th century Oriental rug from the king’s palace? No. A standard, everyday sisal rug to match elaney’s sincere love for the warmth of neutral tones and colors. The only 8′x10′ sisal rugs we could find ranged from $300-$400, and that’s just too much to pay for 2 extra feet of synthetic material. So we said no. And we persevered. And FINALLY, we found this perfect rug from Home Depot (who knew?). Listed for $199, ringing up for $150!! Need a new rug? Don’t let [Pottery Barn] bring the little man down!

We look forward to this every weekend for the six months leading up to it. After shopping in Paris, NYC, Rome, and Hong Kong, we can confirm that this is (not as good as those places, but still) a spot for excellent deals! Friday and Saturday at Atlantic Station. For details, click here.

There is something redeeming about big bags and sunglasses. The exorbitant prices feel a little less offensive, perhaps because you get a litle more material (?). It’s like you’re getting a little more what you deserve. In fact, every now and then, we think to ourselves, “You know what would make us feel better (assuming the frivoulous trip to Target has not worked)…A really big bag.” Try this one by Antik Batik – $200 off.
