Lazy Saturday... And a late to the party outfit post.

Today has been the epitome of a lazy Saturday off work. I admit I've spent most of my day sleeping, watching Netflix, and surfing the interwebz. As a fashion addict, here's a few goodies that caught my eye!

My first pair of glasses from Coastal were by Kam Dhillon and I am SMITTEN with these! I've professed my love of Coastal here and hands down they are THE BEST for ordering glasses online!

Also, can we say these Joseph Marc frames are indeed FABULOUS? Totally digging the combo of black and tortoise shell!

A couple months ago, I splurged on a Pietro Alessandro "Manhattan" purse in black and I adore it. Now I have my eye on this lovely one. Want it? Yes. Need it? Probably not. But isn't that chevron pattern adorable?

And last but not least, here's an #OOTD post I work for date night a couple weeks ago! It went up on Instagram but somehow missed blogging about it!

Jacket - Blank NYC via South Moon Under (also available at Bloomingdales)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

As an experienced retail professional extraordinare, I am still very "old school" when it comes to holiday decorations and the like. So many malls and retailers start decorating quite early. Halloween's over?! Let's put up the faux-evergreen and some sparkly lights y'all. It's not even Thanksgiving and there's a tree lighting event in just over a week... say what?!? The one thing I thoroughly enjoyed about working for Nordstrom is that our holiday decor didn't go into effect until the day after Thanksgiving. I guess the one perk about the holidays "arriving early" is that one gets to experience all the amazing holiday/party themed merchandise. Case in point, I am LOVING this Collective Concepts metallic sparkle sheath dress! It just arrived in stores at South Moon Under and I don't know if it will be online but if you really want one, you can also purchase it online at Nordstrom!

I promise it's a matte/soft gold sparkle on a black fabric base! I swear it's not silver/gunmetal - pinky promise! I love the stretch of the fabric and the sleeve length. A very classic dress with a unique twist that you could easily edge up with a leather jacket (my favorite) or make it very classy with pearls and pumps! While I don't have any holiday parties on my radar yet, I think this might be a must-have for the season. 

Happy Hump Day! And my vintage obsession...

It's hump day y'all! Happy Wednesday my loves!

Least I don't have a camel lurking over my shoulder though my cat is meowing in attempt to get my attention and giving me the death stare.

First and foremost, my custom TheRetailista.com custom domain is FINALLY working... Jeebus. It wasn't that hard but I missed adding the www in something and messed the whole darn thing up. That being said, go and follow me on Bloglovin - I love their app for my iPhone as a way to "read on the go."

Second, I had a chance to do a whirlwind tour to go back home to #RVA this weekend. I haven't been home since February so it was well-deserved and fabulous to go to ol' Virginia for a little bit. I scored this AMAZING vintage coat from my BFF Michelle and I am straight up OBSESSED.

This fits like a glove around my waist and I love how it flares out. I've dubbed it my "Mary Poppins" coat or my kickass coat.

Here's a close-up of the ahhh-mazing tweed fabric. Love it.

There's been a lot going on my radar (will go into that more later) but wanted to at least put up a post!
