Did I Forget Black Friday is Coming?

Not at all! I am compiling a list of tons of deals and steals for you. Here are a few to check out in the meantime:

Black Friday Sites:

Premium Outlets will be holding their midnight madness sale at the strike of midnight on Friday (except Branson, MO; Crossville, TN; Kittery, ME locations):

Just a note: I went to the Chicago Premium Outlets at 11:45 PM last Thanksgiving and the parking lot was completely full! Instead of parking across the street a nearby hotel, I decided to go home. So get there early!

B.B. Dakota Jackie O Jacket - $50

This is THE jacket style this season. This Jackie O jacket can be layered over a long shirt or dress for a fresh look.

Bobi Heathered Cowl Turtleneck in Gray - $37.00
This cowl neck turtleneck has all the elements of the latest trends - it's long, it's gray and it has great detailing with the gathering at the bust. This one is great over skinny jeans, leggings, or tights and boots.

Tramp Amanda Top in Emerald - $27

Another trend is anything shiny - patent leather and satiny fabrics are everywhere! This satin blouse is a great piece for a night on the town. There's also a slit down the back for a sexy touch.

Flip Flops for Under a Buck!

Summertime is not the only time to think about summer gear. As a matter of fact, fall and winter are the season where you will find the best bargains for summer items. So go stock up on your flip-flops now! These flip-flops from Old Navy are only $0.99 and come in 6 colors! No wonder they are Old Navy's best seller!

Announcing Beauty Smackdown!

Do you ever become overwhelmed with the amount of beauty products available that all claim to be THE BEST? You need to check out my new blog, Beauty Smackdown! BeautySmackdown is dedicated to giving you the "skinny" on beauty and costmetic items so that you can make an informed purchase decision. In each post I compare two different products in the same category to declare a winner.

Just to note: These are my honest options. Companies don't pay me to say their items are good.

What I need from you: Tell me what products you want to see in a smackdown! Feel free to email them to me at divaonadollar@yahoo.com.

Dallas Divas: Pre-Holiday Sale at Accents West Village

To all of my loyal Dallas readers... Accents boutique located in the West Village is hosting a pre-Holiday Happy Hour tomorrow, November 16th where all of their items will be 20% off! They will have treats and cocktails for you to enjoy while you shop!

The Scoop: Accents is a great boutique with really affordable clothing in the latest trends. It also carries some great handbags and a wide jewelry selection. The owner, Lucy (from Naperville, IL - big up to DuPage county!), has a great eye. She even helped me find a really cute sweater dress to fit my shape well. There is a really cute shoe shop two doors to the right (I think it's called Accomplice) that has some great items as well (I bought these Seychelles "In the Knick of Time" shoes there for $65)!

Accents is located in the West Village, across from the Avalon Salon at 3699 McKinney Avenue #502.

Fashion at the Park Dallas 2007

Those of you who have never visited Dallas may not know this, but surprisingly, Dallas is quite the fashion epicenter of the South. As the home of Neiman Marcus (as well as JC Penney), the city's style and fashion savoir faire continue to amaze me. Yesterday started Fashion at the Park, which is Dallas’ version of Fashion Week. I have been covering the event for The Dallas Morning News’ Fashion Buzz blog and it has been amazing! Last night I was able to cover the Oscar de la Renta and Billy Reid shows.

Oscar de la Renta
Oscar’s show was ultra feminine, with a lot of resort and safari influences. Some of the trends I saw were lots of wide leg pants, ruffled skirts/dresses, and more pocketed dresses. What one item should you invest in for the spring? This belt was THE accessory of the show. It was seen with everything from formal dresses to career wear to blouses. Find a knock-off and wear it freely!
Tonight I will be attending both Diesel and bebe shows. Tomorrow I will attend shows for Dillard's and Macy's. For continued coverage of the blog, check out the Shopping Buzz Blog.
