For me, eBay is like a black hole. Once I start searching for something, I can spend hours trying to find other things I didn’t know I needed. I have been an avid eBay user for over 10 years now! There are so many gems to be found. Even current fashion pieces that are still in retail stores for full price, you can usually find for less. Or maybe there’s that piece from a past season that you just didn’t snag in time- always check eBay! I can almost guarantee you they will have it! In this post, I am concentrating on outerwear pieces which you probably already know is my THING. I am alllllll about the coats, jackets and vests! Living in Maine, it is cold about 8 months out of the year so my coat collection is pretty massive. Here are some of my most recent favorites- all of which you can find on eBay! Ps. I did not even realize that every single piece I am going to show you is Patagonia! I guess when I love a brand, I really LOVE a brand! Also sizing wise, every piece below is an xs which is my regular size in this brand.
The Nordstrom Fall Sale is well underway and things are selling out FAST!! I have put together a few looks with various pieces I picked up from the fall sale but you will have to hurry- sizes are limited in most things. The sale runs through November 18 but I have a feeling all the good stuff will be gone before then!
This wool peacoat might be my favorite thing from the sale. I can’t believe it’s only $35! I was debating between the pink and tan but went with the tan since it’s more classic. I went with my regular size XS and would say it fits true to size and I can still layer under it if I want to. My jeans are also part of the sale- only $44. I have had them since this summer and have worn them a TON! The website states to size down but I went with my regular size and they fit great. My top is a very versatile piece that can be dressed up or down. It’s also work appropriate (I get asked all the time for office attire!). Lastly, my booties are SO CHIC. I need the black pair! The pointy toe and low-heel make them flattering but also comfortable enough to wear all day!
I love the colors in this next outfit. My tank top rarely goes on sale. It’s a really hot item! It comes in a bunch of patterns and colors so there’s definitely one for every one. My cardigan was a great find and a great buy. Only $57- I think it was originally close to $100. It’s cozy and warm but also very chic-definitely a fall closet staple. Lastly these booties are the best! They are flats so you can be comfortable in them all day. They also come in a darker brown that is just beautiful!
Lastly I just wanted to mention this henley top. I am a huge fan of the style plus this one is SO soft. I love anything made of that super soft brushed material so this top was a must buy for me. It also comes in a few other colors and is only $27!
Here are some other things I am loving from the Nordstrom Fall Sale:
The Nordstrom fall sale is well underway- this is a great time to grab a few fall essentials for your self or to give as gifts. Everything is deeply discounted- up to 40% off! Here are the things that caught my eye AND things I believe will sell out before the end of the sale-
Fleece Jogger Pants ON SALE FOR $17- I LIVE in joggers- the softer the better too. These are fabulous and a MUST, especially for the price. They run true to size, I would highly suggest grabbing a pair for you and for your bestie. This brand is rarely this discounted.
Wool Peacoat ON SALE FOR $35- This deal is insane! I snagged one immediately and can tell you it’s worth every penny. It’s classic and CHIC as can be with that super high collar. It runs true to size and comes in multiple colors!
Faux Leather Weekender Bag ON SALE FOR $53- This bag looks WAY more expensive than it actually is- and being black- it’s a total classic. The size looks perfect for a carry on or a weekend getaway!
Hunter Boots ON SALE FOR $99- Hunter boots don’t go on sale often, so when they do, you have to grab them! Again, black is a classic choice. I have had mine for years. Sizing- I have always sized down one size in my Hunter boots.
Tory Burch Watch ON SALE FOR $134- Again, this piece is a classic. I tried to really incorporate fall colors/classic colors because I feel like getting a ‘classic piece’ at a discount is the best deal. Things in tan and black will never go out of style. I want this watch so badly and at that price- I might just have to order it!
White Hooded Cardigan ON SALE FOR $41- This sweater looks like the coziest thing ever!! I would love to wear this with my pajamas and come cozy slippers. I know a lot of my friends would love this sweater so I figured you all might love it as well!
Tory Burch Tote ON SALE FOR $134- I used to own this bag and I can tell you- the quality and the size is amazing. It’s made of a very durable coated canvas that you can wipe clean. This bag comes in a bunch of colors. It would also be great for a diaper bag because of how roomy it is.
Bow Ugg Boots ON SALE FOR $119- Ugg boots are always very popular during the holidays and winter months. I thought these were so cute with the bow detail. Sizing- I stay with my true size in Ugg boots.
Barefoot Dreams Cardigan ON SALE FOR $67- I have never seen this brand so discounted. I am sure it will sell out very fast! If you have never tried out a Barefoot Dreams piece, now is your chance. They are so soft and amazing!
It’s that time of the year again! Gift guides time! I love love making gift guides for you all. I think I always start with gifts for the girls because it’s just the easiest for me! I always include my obsessions- what I love or am really eager to get! I think I have everything here except for the earrings in the middle which I NEED!
So here goes-
Tula Ultimate Self Care Kit: This kit is a MAJOR steal! It’s $250 worth of full-size products for $148 PLUS you can use my discount code MRSCOCO for an additional 20% off, making it just $118 for everything!! If you have been wanting to try the brand or know someone special who has been wanting to try it- this is the best deal you will find!
State Necklace: I got this necklace a couple of months ago and I just love it and find it so special and meaningful. Whether it’s the place you currently live or have lived, it’s a great piece and a good little conversation starter! It also comes in different sizes too!
Philosophy Hand Cream($28)- I love gift sets for the holidays. You can give the entire set to one person or open it up and divvy up the contents among a few people. I have this set and love all the different sets and they are a perfect travel/purse size!
Philosophy Amazing Grace Set ($55)- Again, I get one of these sets ever year. I use it throughout the entire year but always buy during the holidays when the prices are the best. This is almost $100 worth of full-size product for $55 and the scent is so light and clean.
Baublebar Resin Earrings ($42) These earrings are the only thing from this gift guide that I don’t actually own but I plan to! I think they will dress up a holiday outfit or pair well with jeans and a sweater. They are just so pretty with the perfect amount of sparkle!
O Venture Keyring & Wristlet ($115) If you have followed me for any length of time then you already know I am obsessed with my O VENTURE key ring. It is the product you never knew you needed until you got it. I never lose my keys anymore and it’s also helpful to be hands free with the kids or groceries. This mocha-colored set is just gorgeous plus you can use code: Coco15 for a 15% off discount!
O Venture Rose Gold Key Ring ($25) If you are looking to just try out an O-ring but not spend tons of money- the silicone ones are only $25 and come in tons of colors. My favorite is this rose gold one that I have gifted so many of my friends. Plus you can also use the 15% off coupon code: Coco15 to save a little more!
Tula Sheet Masks ($26) So again, if you want to just try a little Tula because you aren’t ready to dive all in, try these sheet masks! They are so amazing and really make you glow. Plus they are limited edition so get them while you can. Don’t forget you can use code: MRSCOCO for 20% off!
Sara Happ Lip Trio ($38) This sugar and shine set is delicious! For real, you will want to eat it. The set comes with two of her famous lip scrubs (pink marshmallow and hot cocoa) and a lip gloss (whipped vanilla). You will not only love this trio because of how soft it will make your lips but the flavors are just SO GOOD.
Okay you guys, the Wal-Mart fashion department is SO GOOD right now! I recently I found myself aimlessly walking around Walmart (probably looking for pull-ups) and I couldn’t get over the Women’s fashion department– especially the Time and Tru brand-so good!. I took a little detour through the clothes because so many of the pieces caught my eye. I also feel like so many of the pieces look like pieces I already have in my wardrobe but paid AT LEAST double or triple for! I think Wal-Mart has really stepped up their game in the fashion and shoe department which is just fantastic. If you are on a budget or don’t like to spend a ton of money on clothes, you can achieve the same look for less. There were so many sweaters and tops I could have come home with. Cute button details, soft fabrics, delicate details, etc. I highly encourage you to take a look around their website or at your local store. They even have a Premier Section on their site with brands like BCBG, Lord & Taylor, Calvin Klein, Vince Camuto, Lucky, to name a few.
Okay now let’s discuss this outfit! It was incredibly easy to put together and in total, the entire outfit cost just over $50!!! That’s right! $50 for an amazing sweater cardigan, henley, jeans, shoes and bag! LIKE WHAT???? You know I get super excited about things and this collaboration with Wal-Mart was definitely one of them! The sweater cardigan is definitely the hero piece for me! It is SO SOFT, great quality, comes in a bunch of colors and was less than $17! MIND = BLOWN! I got it in a size small and it fits great. Next this henley– I am actually not new to the Wal-Mart henley tops, I already own two from last year but I felt this wine color was perfect for fall! I took it in a size small. It fits great, a little looser than other henley tops I have but likely because I got a small and not an xs. The black jeggings were another great find- my only concern was that they don’t seem to have a lot of XS sizes in store so I took a chance and got a small which said it fits a size 3-5. Luckily they fit great- even after washing and drying them on high heat- which you know I always do! Okay onto accessories! You literally can’t go wrong with black ballet flats. These ones were like $6 and they are actually really comfortable. PLUS- black ballet flats will NEVER go out of style- just ask any fashionable woman in Paris. (True story- I remember being on our honeymoon and couldn’t get over how every woman in Paris were wearing black ballet flats. It was incredible. I will never forget that little memory). I found them to run true to size. Lastly this amazing tote bag! It was $14 and is reversible. It also comes in a bunch of color, has a detachable crossbody strap and detachable pouch that you can carry for a night out or store your receipts and lip products in. I have a very similar tote that I recently paid a few hundred dollars for and this one was $14. unbelievable. If I haven’t sold you on Wal-Mart as a fashion destination yet, just take a wonder through your local store. I can promise you, you will be as amazed at the pieces as I was!
