Sweet Dreams Are Made of This

As the weather turns cold, there’s nothing like a good pair of snuggly flannel pajamas to make life better. Of course, getting those pajamas at a good price warms the heart as much as the flannel warms the body.

Victoria Victoria’s Secret has made these slouchy pjs in a soft pure cotton flannel so that even when the weather outside is frightful, you’ll be toasty warm and stylish. Not wild about the print? Don’t worry about that! There are 24 colors/prints to choose from, ranging from plaid to polka dots to pink elephants (no, really, they do have a pink elephant print!). Taller or shorter than average? VS has got you covered. They come in both tall and petite lengths, as well as average.

Did I mention they’re on sale? Because they are. Regularly priced at $49.50, they’re currently going for just $39.50. And to sweeten the deal, order before Dec. 8, use code PJGIFT and get a matching pair of slippers for free!

That’s right, the slippers (a $25.00 value) are free! See site for details.

I think I’ll dream about this deal tonight.

Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Don’t Sweat It Edition

Spring is closing in on us quickly, but there’s still a sometimes chill in the air. I know we all are looking forward to peeling off the layers and baring our shoulders, but now is the best time of the year to get a great deal on outerwear. And so I thought I’d present a few deals going out there on sweaters.

This metallic portrait-collared cardigan is from Newport News.

Newport News Metallic CardiganTake a look at the pretty cut and elegant portrait collar. It’s going to stand you in good stead on cool spring evenings, and it will still look great over a thermal turtleneck next winter. Unfortunately, the color shown is out of stock (sorry, they didn’t have full pictures of the other colors in action), but it’s still available in Bronze, Midnight, and Magenta. Oh, and while the original price was a budget-friendly $74.00, it’s now available for just $14.99!

Friday Finds Under Fifty: The Signs of Spring Edition

Okay, so it’s still January. I know that. But the fact is that even while it’s very, very cold in a lot of places, the days are beginning to lengthen, the temperatures are starting to rise in a lot of other places, and dammit, I need to remember that there will be warm weather again and a reason to haul out my best sandals.

That’s where shopping is an excellent pastime. No matter what the season, you can bet that most of the stores have moved on from this one midway through and are merrily on to the next. This may make trying to buy a white, short-sleeved blouse in August more difficult that finding a unicorn to ride in the Thanksgiving Day parade, but it makes window shopping in January (or even real shopping in January) a bit more fun. You’re preparing to say hello to the sun again, and that’s okay by me.

So what can we find that speaks of both spring and good savings? Just take a lookie here:

Old Navy Satin CamiThis cute little satin cami will look cool as a cucumber once the weather warms. Oh, and in addition to basic black, it also comes in floral print. What’s more it comes in average, petite, and tall sizes (sorry, you tall gals only get the black, I’m afraid) atOld Navy.

Oh, and as to price, it started out at a thrifty $24.50, but has been marked down to a mere $3.99! That’s not a typo, folks, this top is really only four bucks right now.
