How StyleChat can make your Black Friday Shopping Easy, Convenient, and Fun

We all know Black Friday shopping can be a tad overwhelming to say the least. The huge lines, packed stores, and let’s not even get into the trouble of finding parking at your local mall. Imagine being able to enjoy your favorite sales while sitting on the couch in your PJ’s with your favorite movie on in the background and your friends or family by your side.

So many of our favorite retailers are offering great sales online, which you can access from the comforts of your home, using your iPhone or iPad! Forever 21 is offering up to 70% off select styles. Aldo is making it easier for us to grow our shoe collection by offering 50% off more than 1000 styles! If you’re ready to indulge in some designer pieces, Neiman Marcus is doing an online promotion; if you buy $200 or more worth of qualifying merchandise, you get $50 off your purchase!

Now it’s time to do the best part of shopping, the browsing and searching for those dream items that you simply need in your life! It’s the perfect time to revamp your wardrobe before the holiday season.

Use the StyleChat app to create looks and compare them with your favorite items. With all the holiday parties coming up, now is a good time to buy a little black dress and a pair of high heel pumps to go with it! If you’re like me, sometimes it takes time to narrow down your favorite styles with so many great options out there! Use the app to send items to your friends to ask for their opinion! Hopefully this will help you narrow down the choices and purchase only the items that you’ll love and wear a ton!

5 Dining Pieces Every Hostess Needs for their Dinner Parties

Are you looking to host the best Thanksgiving party at your place this year? While the guest list and the food are wildly important, we all know that décor and presentation matters too!

Although many may say that what you serve is more important than what you serve it in, there’s still nothing wrong with going above and beyond by investing in some great classic serving pieces.

Here are five versatile pieces that will not only be helpful for this Thanksgiving, but will also work for any future event you may host in your home.

The Cake Stand

Let’s get down to the main event: dessert. Whether you made your pie from scratch or bought it from the store, you can make it look even more enticing by placing it on an elegant cake stand.

Multi-Size Serving Bowls

Now that we’ve got dessert covered, it’s time to figure out what you’re going to use to serve your main-course meal items. Between salads, roasted veggies, and potatoes, having multiple bowls in multiple sizes will definitely come in handy! These rustic metallic bowls from Bed Bath and Beyond will not only be practical, but will also help make your table look great!

The Ice Bucket

In terms of convenience, having an ice bucket will always come in handy when you’re hosting a large party. The fridge will inevitably be packed full of food and drinks, so why not use an ice bucket at the table to help with the chilling process. It’s functional and adds an elegant aesthetic.

The Pitcher

 Nobody wants to be running back and forth to the kitchen every two seconds to fetch water for all your guests. Keeping a pitcher of water, juice, or iced tea on the table is a great easy way to make your job as hostess a little simpler.

Looking to spice up your holiday wardrobe? A fun top with velour pants will do the trick. Add statement accessories or chunky heels to take your outfit from day to night. If velour pants aren’t your style, try a low drop waist dress with your favorite high heels adding just the right amount of flare.
