Black Friday 2005

This past Friday was the annual BLACK FRIDAY (aka The Biggest Shopping Day of the Year)! I was out there with all the other shoppers looking for the best bargins of the Holiday Season! However from an article posted the day after in the NYTimes, retailers seem worried about sales this holiday season. They think the high gas prices and heating costs are going to have a negative effect on how much money everyone is going to be willing to spend.

Since tucking in jeans into your boots is a major fashion trend this winter, you might ask how this is supposed to be done?

Cynthia Nellis from, gives us some simple tips to make this trend easy to pull off. She says, "Start off with your straightest legged jeans, tuck your jeans first into knee-high socks, then just slip your boots over your socks!" It's super easy!

Icing by Claires

Icing is a branch of the Claires Co. These two places are great to buy cheap accessories for any occassion. Spending less than 10 bucks on a pair of earrings won't be too disappointing if you happen to loose on after a night out on the town! For those of you who are big spenders on jewelry, you can't go wrong with Tiffanys & Co. , but be ready for a huge price tag and everyone else wearing your same necklace.

Jewelry usually isn't a trend that changes drastically from season to season. However lately jewelry has taken a huge leap into the Fall/Winter season. All in all, silver is not so flashy anymore. Taking it's place is gold, bronze, and copper! Jewel tones are trendy, and any color you could see being made into velvet. Long necklaces are always a good way to go, don't be afraid to layer. Vintage styles are simple things that shouldn't be overlooked. Check out thrift stores and antique stores for original accessories that no one else will have!
