Happy Thanksgiving + My Black Friday Philosophy

Happy Thanksgiving + My Black Friday Philosophy
Stephanie Kantis Black Friday

First off, let me wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you're enjoying it with friends and family and a full belly, I am! 

Now, on to this week's topic, Black Friday. Many people love it, while others think it’s ruining Thanksgiving. I wanted to share my opinion, because Black Friday has been helping keep my holidays stress-free for years.

First off, I agree that leaving family dinners early or putting shopping ahead of spending time with loved ones, isn’t cool. It’s important to set priorities. Family First. 

Now, it’s important that you do your “Black Friday” homework so you know when and where you are going to get your best deals. I write down everyone on my list I need gifts for and set a budget for each. Once I know who I need presents for, I can get to work and see which stores and brands are offering the best deals.

I love online shopping and so much of Black Friday’s deals are online, which is making this even easier. I really focus on getting everyone done this weekend. If I devote this one weekend to holiday shopping I can really enjoy the holidays. It gives me the whole month of December to be present with my friends and family, and who doesn’t want that?!

I have been so excited lately, because I’m loving all the new fall fashions. It’s finally getting a bit cooler here in Florida and I love any excuse to mix up my sandals and shorts. As I find myself covering up, I am always looking for new ways to wear my jewelry, here are some ideas you might want to try.

Stephanie Kantis Fall 2016 Choker

While the choker trend has been around for a few seasons, I’m really loving it for Fall. The above image is from the Ralph Lauren runway, and he always knows how to make any trend super classy.
I’ve had some friends asking me how to make chokers work for any age and I have a few easy tips. Remember that you can make a choker out most chains. Almost all my chains are adjustable, so you can DIY a choker out of a piece you already own. Just play around with the length and make sure that the chain hits as close to the neck as possible, without it being uncomfortable. You can even double up a chain if it’s long enough, play around and find a style that suits you.
Also, this Fall we are seeing a ton of opulent fabrics like velvet and embroidered jackets making their way to the stores. As well as lots of mixing of materials and metals. This makes me so happy because my Fall collection has so many great mixed metal pieces incorporating gold and charcoal to create this rich vibe that goes perfectly with a velvet slip dress or silk bomber jacket. Any of the pieces from the Sunburst collection would pair beautifully with these trends right now, can’t wait to play around and find my favorite combinations.

Happy Accessorizing.
