Is it just me or does it seem like trying to get everything done around the holidays is impossible?  Also, when it gets darker so much earlier I feel like when I’m done with work, that’s it.  I don’t have the drive to head to class or grade papers.  Anyways, I think that just means I’m ready for this upcoming holiday break.  I wanted to check in with y’all to share with you a few things that are trending on my radar.

Now I’ve been at this blogging thing for a little while now and that comes with the emails on a daily basis from brands reaching out for awareness.  Majority of times I politely say no because there is really no way I could spin light bulbs or dog food that makes sense.  I try to only talk about things that I use on a daily basis.  Other times I think I am going to be excited about a product and it falls short, therefore it doesn’t get talked about because I don’t like it.  I’ve recently been introduced to two new online concepts that I wanted to share with y’all.

The first one is DITTO.  I am completely sold on this.  I’ve been using it for just over 3 months and have already been hooked up with 5 pairs of designer sunglasses.  The concept is so easy.  You sign up and for $24 a month you get unlimited high end sunglasses sent to you.  I have had Ray-bans, Prada, Derek Lam and two pairs of Karen Walkers.  To see if they will look good on you, you take a picture of yourself and you can virtually try on any pair.  You send over the style you want and in super fast shipping, your beauties arrive.  Every pair I have gotten, the boxes have been sealed and the glasses look brand new.DITTO

When you are done, request your next pair.  They arrive, place your old box in and slap on the already paid for shipping label, drop off at the Post Office and enjoy.  It is seriously that easy.  I was a little nervous with my clumsy self but it has insurance built into the price for every day wear/scratches.  If you choose to buy you get 15% off the price but you can keep your frames an unlimited amount of time until you want to swap out for another pair.  Seriously, it’s genius.  Now you don’t have to have just one pair of expensive sunglasses that you will get bored with.  You can keep your pair for as long as your membership is in good standing.

This is one of my favorite blogger finds and to all my readers you can get your first month for FREE with the code meetatthebarre.  I really know y’all will dig this as much as I have been!DITTO Sunglasses

Next!  Have you heard of the Golden Totes yet?  It’s a company out in California that fills your “tote” with curated pieces by their stylists.  This is how it works.  There are 3 levels of totes.  The first level is $49.  You pick one item from the collection and then their stylist will surprise you with another piece.  So basically you are getting two items for $25 each.  That is like Target prices.  The next tote is the $99 where they pick 4 items for you based on  your style profile.  The last available tote is for $149.  You pick two items that you want and then the stylist will fill your tote, so you have 5-6 pieces in total.  Also, if there is a piece that you have to have, you can add it on to your order for a reduced price.Golden Tote Review Blogger

The style profile was very descriptive with your body type, your style, what you do like and most importantly what you don’t like. The tote was shipped fast and I loved every single piece in there.  What I really liked about it is there were a few pieces that I probably never would have initially picked up for myself but on, they have quickly become my go to holiday favorites.

I wore this dress to dinner with Marks parents on Friday night.Golden ToteGolden Tote dressesGolden Tote Review

This was the sweater dress that were in my snaps on Friday night that y’all were asking me about!Green sweater dress Golden ToteGolden Tote Green dressplaid scarfPlaid Blanket scarf

If you choose to return your tote you can do so for a full refund within 14 days of receipt.  What I also thought was a good idea is you can trade on their Facebook page here.  I honestly liked every single thing in my tote and didn’t return any items.  I got 6 great pieces for the price of one to two items at boutique prices.  It would be a really great holiday gift for the person who has everything!  A really great switch up!The Golden Tote

The high ticket items do sell out quickly.  If you sign up for the newsletter you will be alerted when the next collection becomes available so you will have first dibs on the newest arrivals!  Golden Tote is also currently having a sample sale, all clothing for $25 and jewelry/accessories for $10.  Today is the last day for it!

Last, SHOPBOP is having an additional 25% off their sale prices right now with the code BONUS25!  Since they are linked to Amazon you are guaranteed to get your order in time!  Here are a few last minute adds I am scooping up.  I have a pair of these PJ luxe pants and they are incredibly soft.  Snap up my favorite pieces from BB Dakota.  Some of my favorite Dolce Vita booties are on sale.  Tory Burch sale items are included….just saying I mean check out these boots.  There are a few of the DL1961 leggings that I’ve been wearing on major repeat are also on sale.  Since I’ll be up north for the holidays, last minute cold weather accessories.  Kate Spade earrings are always great stocking stuffers.  If you are scrambling for a last minute gift, a S’well bottle will always be very well received!  shopbop sale

These are a few new favs currently trending on my radar.  Have you heard of DITTO or Golden Tote before?  What sunglasses would you pick out first?  Remember you can get your first month free with the code meetatthebarre.  Happy shopping!  xoxoxo

  11. So DITTO is like the Rocksbox of sunnies?! THAT I can get into, living in the South! I’m also a designer sunnies snob so…. Yeah. Sign me up! That’s a subscription service I can actually get into!

  12. Stacy says:

    The tote thing sounds like a good way to get some different pieces in your wardrobe! Love that olive sweater dress!

  13. Yours is the best Golden Tote I’ve seen! Some reviews have been really hit or miss – maybe they’ve upped their quality. Both of those dresses look stunning on you!

    I feel you with the weather. I have zero motivation after work because it gets dark.

  14. Carly says:

    I love both of these ideas. It’s crazy how subscription boxes and rentals have evolved to where they are.

  15. Missy says:

    I am totally going to check out golden tote this evening, blocked at work. Love everything in there! Feel you on the dark earlyness!

  16. Seriously how do you find all these awesome deals?! Yes that sunglasses subscription service is the coolest thing I’ve ever heard of. Especially since I will never ever be able to justify $$$ sunnies. The Golden Tote idea is amazing too. I will totally be looking into that one first! I LOVED that sweater you wore in your snaps. Color, cut, errythan. (;

  17. That floral dress looks fab on you! I’ve never been a big print girl but I think it’s b/c I can’t pull them off. You, my dear, sure can.

  18. Christina says:

    Agreed! I feel like there really aren’t enough hours in the day, every day now until the holidays are over (but I also love the craziness). I love all your holiday looks – subtle and fabulous!

  19. Nadine says:

    You always find out about the coolest stuff!!! I thought about you last week while watching Shark Tank because the girls of Piper Wai were on and they got a deal with Barbara and plan to come out with a stick version. I cant wait for the stick version, I quit using my other bottle half way through bc I dont like that finger application. It annoys me lol.

    I love the items you got in your bag and the sunglass trade is pretty cool too!

  20. Amanda says:

    How cool!! I cant get over the idea of the designer sunglasses. I’m so clumsy that I’m afraid to buy expensive pairs and usually stick with cheaper ones, but I REALLY want to try that out! Also, those prices for 6 pieces of clothing is awesome. I cant wait for post pregnancy when I can try that. Awesome finds!

  21. kristen says:

    oooh that sweater dress is super cute! i had heard of golden tote before but didn’t really understand it, so thanks for explaining! now, this sunglasses thing.. what happens if you break them? because i am super talented at breaking sunglasses ;)

  22. I keep hearing great things about DITTO. Will definitely have to check them out for the New Year! Also, I’ve never heard of Golden Tote, but that sounds awesome! xo, Champagne&Suburbs
