Shopping with Elle: Friday Finds


Happy Friday everyone!  We made it through Thanksgiving and found our way to Black Friday.  I hope everyone ate well and enjoyed time with their family and friends during this season of thanks.  As for myself, I enjoyed a day well spent with my dad, daughter, and a few other relatives.  This year we scheduled dinner early (3pm to be exact) to ensure my dad could be out and about at the Black Friday sales beginning at 6pm.  There once was a time when I'd be gung-ho to be out as well, but in watching the sales and over crowded malls these past couple of years, it really hasn't been worth it. But this year, I ventured out and found a few (hint-hint, FEW, lol) great pieces that I'd been vying for!

Thankful Tuesday


So it's the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and this year I've noticed alot of people taking the time to proclaim what they're thankful for and I thought it would be great for me to do the same.  I can think of a million things that have gone wrong, are going wrong, and will go wrong, but I wanted to challenge myself to come up with a list of things that I am truly thankful for.

XOXO: Charlotte Olympia


It's officially holiday season!  This week kicks off great eating, festive events, and stylish combinations for my fellow fashion lovers.  Over the weekend, my daughter attended a friends birthday party and while waiting, I decided to venture over to a new store I took notice of.  At the onset it looked like a typical discount store like that of a Ross (if you're in the Carolina's) but upon further browsing, they actually had a few great finds, in particular, a pair of platform heels very similar to the Charlotte Olympia Masako!


Holiday Gems: Sophia Webster


It's the most wonderful time of the year . . . . . . sing along everyone!  I'm over the moon ecstatic about the holiday season and I hope that you are too!  It's such a festive time, and one of the only times where I feel that everyone puts their best foot forward in terms of style and fashion.  For me, this season translates into the opportunity to show off your favorite pieces and statement stilettos.

Obaku Watch Review + Giveaway


This week I'm highlighting an amazing watch brand, OBAKU Denmark USA (with local ties to Charlotte) AND hosting an amazing giveaway courtesy of the brand.  When I was first approached by the brand I was ecstatic after checking out their amazing lineup on the web!

Cloud 9 with Miu Miu


Happy Monday!  It seems like the weekend flew by and here we are again at the start of a new week.  In random scrolling through Instagram (@ellevj_), I came across this photo showcasing these Glittered Mary Jane Pumps by Miu Miu . . . . absolutely breathtaking.

Cotton Candy Express


Pretty pinks, pale blues, Kate Spade, and Betsey Johnson!  So playful yet so stylish, you simply cannot go wrong with this color palette or these bouncing brands.

Strawberry Shortcake



Happy Saturday everyone!  It's a rainy gloomy day here in the QC, but I'm still happy and full of life.  I have a few errands to run on today, in addition to a brief style meet and greet, so I though I'd keep it casual (something I rarely do) and sweet!
