Fashion Friday: More Jeans from Ebay and A Puffer Vest

This post includes some affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links, at no cost to you! Thank you so much for your support!

I wasn't sure if I'd get a post ready for's been a busy week and it seems to be getting harder to find the time for photography, now that the days are so short (and I don't like having them taken inside because there's never enough light). We did manage to take these pictures late Monday afternoon before I went to the grocery store. I don't know how so many  bloggers can post daily...

I'm sharing another casual look. This time I'm wearing my eggplant vest. This is a thicker puffer vest than my black vest I shared a few weeks ago. It's lined with fur so it's very warm. The vest is old from Eddie Bauer. I love this deep eggplant color! 

The sweater was a recent find at TJ Maxx by Calvin Klein. I love this pretty shade of blue and the sweater is soooo soft. There's also a pretty cable knit detail on half of the sleeves that I thought was unique. Unfortunately I couldn't find a link to this sweater at TJMaxx, but they do update their inventory often and always worth checking out their site. Otherwise you might want to take a look at Macy's sweaters. They currently have some great deals for Black Friday. Great options at Kohl's as well, I've linked a couple below, but nothing really in this color.

In my last fashion post I mentioned that I purchased another pair of   .This time I got the skinny jeans and I am wearing them here. They fit me well and were a good buy, but it's a lower rise than my usual jeans (something I forgot to check when I purchased them). Oh well, I did hear that low rise jeans are making a comeback and these aren't terribly low. 

I tried to get one of my kitties in the pictures but he was not being very cooperative - little stinker, always on the run!

I'm wearing sneakers for a change. These are the Taos Retro Star in Khaki Suede. It's recommended to size up half a size so mine are a size 8.5. By the way, they are marked down to less than $70 from $110, so if you're looking for a stylish and comfortable pair of sneakers with  great arch support you might want to check these out. 

My cross body bag is by Baggalini. Mine is old but this one is similar. And there are several other models available on Amazon. My glasses are by Coach, mine were picked up at my local eyecare clinic.

Puffer Vest Option HERE  from Kohl's,  HERE from Macy's or HERE from Old Navy - this one is marked to $15 during the Black Friday sale.

So, have you done any Black Friday shopping? Where did you go, or did you shop online like I did?  Remember, Kohl's is having their wonderful Kohl's Cash promotion still going on, but it does end soon! If you missed my Kohl's Favorites, you can take a look at my long list HERE

At a glance, here are some of the great deals from some of my favorite stores this Black Friday.

I find I have a read hard time getting GOOD photos this time of year too as the light is so limited (and we've been having rainy days besides!).

Ellibelle said...

Yes, the weather definitely plays a big role in this too.
Thanks for stopping by!

Love how your cat didn't want to be in the pics, haha! :) You did a great job with outdoor photos! I find photos in winter a struggle as it's dark when I leave for work and dark when I get home! I need to try find a quiet spot near the office to take pics...ha!

Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :) I posted my Annual Handbag Gift Guide if you want to check it out :)

Away From Blue

I love eBay for good deals. I'm a little leery on jeans, though, because of fit issues...

I got a Baggalini bag last year and love all the pockets. Your sneakers are the first thing that caught my eye, I really like them! That blue is beautiful on you. I have been having trouble with the wind lately when my son takes my daily pictures.

I love this color combo of eggplant and light blue. I never would have thought of it but it works perfectly! Super cute outfit. I am loving your sneakers, too. Thanks for linking up with me, my friend!

It's so hard to take photos this time of year with limited light but your pic's turned out great! This is such a cute look! Love your vest!

Thanks Mica. He's a very stubborn cat for sure! I'll be sure to check out your handbag gift guide. Thanks for letting me know!

Ellibelle said...

Thanks Kim. I make sure the seller offers free returns, luckily they fit though, it's too much extra work when I have to return stuff, but sometimes neccessary!

Ellibelle said...

It's a great bag and all the pockets are so helpful. I don't wear sneakers that often, but these are so comfortable to walk in and I had to get them before our overseas trip last year. Wind is always a struggle when taking pictures!
Thanks for stopping by!

Ellibelle said...

Thanks Shelbee! Always happy to link up!

Thanks so much, Jill!

We have an orange cat that looks just like yours! He won't pose for photos for us either! Haha! Love your new jeans and the vest! I'm obsessed with puffer vests!

Kellyann Rohr said...

The struggle is real with the shorter day light! Ugh, drives me nuts! Thank you for linking up with the Style Six today!'

Jessica Jannenga said...

Aww, love seeing pets in the pictures! I hear you about taking pictures! I prefer the afternnon if we can, and I know what you mean about indoor pics, they never turn out quite right! Love your vest and I need to check Ebay more. I buy my AG jeans on Poshmark, and get them for a steal! They look nice on you!
thanks for linking!

Such a cute look! I love vests! Except I wore my blue vest to Hobby Lobby and someone thought I worked there. Ha ha. I was able to answer her question though.

Nicole of High Latitude Style said...

Your cat is the cutest! Love the cozy vest dear.
