My First Blate ;)

Last Wednesday was a big day for me.
I had my first blate.
What's a blate you ask?
It's a "date" that you go on with a blog friend.
(I just learned that a couple of weeks ago from Shanna.)
So, who was my first blate with?
This pretty lady!
This is Alison from Get Your Pretty On!
We met, talked blog, brainstormed some ideas, ate brisket tacos, and then did a little bit of shopping at The LOFT.
It was a great first blate! ;)
So, what did I wear on my first blate?
Well....a Pinterest inspired outfit of course!
Outfit inspiration pinned, originally found here on this super cute blog!
Yellow cardigan| GAP outlet
not sold online, but similar found here
Leopard Scarf:  Nordstrom (similar here and here)
Jeans:  Swanky Boutique (similar here)
Boots:  Ross (similar here)
White t-shirt:  J Crew Outlet
not sold online, but similar found here
Turquoise and bling earrings: LOFT

I really liked this combo!
Thanks again Pinterest for telling me to!

I have a little preview for you guys.
Next Thursday I'm going to be highlighting ALL THINGS LEOPARD in my 12 Days of Christmas series.  While working on the post this morning, I saw that one of my features is 40% off right now!
So, I thought you guys might want to take advantage!
Presenting to You:
The darling (and sexy!) leopard ankle boot from LOFT!
And just in case you didn't catch it before, they are 40% off right now
(but probably for only a day or two).

  Click HERE to get them for you or a loved one at an AWESOME price!
Buy them.  Buy them now.  :)
You know you'll regret it if you don't!
For those of you new to the blog...please click here for a priceless story about these boots!
I promise you, it's worth the click and the read.

And before you leave, I've got an announcement for you guys!
The Thursday after Thanksgiving (November 29th),
Alison and I are partnering up with some other bloggers to bring you a linky party!
Your hosts will be:
Pinterest Told Me To
and Shannon at Wine Taste Girl
The Linky Party will be called D.A.S.H.
which stands for...
Deals and Steals Hop
It's going to be So. Much. Fun.
 Please be thinking about what Deals and Steals you want to highlight!
I know everybody likes getting a good deal, 
but if you're like me, 
there's something even better than getting a good deal.... SHARING a deal!
Am I right ladies?
Well....we're going to give everybody a platform to scream things like,
"HEY PEOPLE....YOU SEE THIS AWESOME SCARF?
WELL, IT WAS $3.64!"
and
"YOU SAID YOU LIKE MY BOOTS?  WELL, I'VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU PAL!
THEY WERE ORIGINALLY $345, BUT I GOT THEM ON SALE FOR $70!"
My endorphins are going crazy just thinking about it.
So....get your post ready and link up with us on the 29th!
We can all oooh and ahhhhh over everybody's awesome scores!
It'll be fun!!!.

Linking Up Today with Watch What I'm Wearing!

  2. And what a great first blate it was! I seriously couldn't decide what to wear for it. You were rockin' that yellow and leopard ensemble. I couldn't wait to report back to my hubby about our first blate and tell him that you are just as sweet in real life. Thankfully,he's not the jealous type. :)

    Super excited to be pairing up for our first linky party!

  8. Hi Sheaffer. I have been reading your blog since August, but this is my first post. I want to request some help please! I just bought this super cut Lace Dress from Loft, and I need Accessory suggestions. I want to dress it up - probably going to wear pumps or Calf Boots with heels and hose. Here is the link to the page on Loft: http://www.loft.com/loft/product/product%3A292095/LOFT-gifts-shop-all/Lace-Cap-Sleeve-Wedge-Dress/292095?colorExplode=false&skuId=12674008&catid=catl000013&productPageType=fullPriceProducts&defaultColor=6600

    Thanks!!

  10. I love meeting blog friends as well...however, I never knew it was called a "blate" haha! I found your blog via Mel @ The Larson Lingo. I looooove the idea of "Shopping your closet" and have started to do the same in my own. I'd love for you to check out my WIWW post going up tomorrow, it is all about my first time shopping my closet since reading Mel's post about your blog and this concept!
