SHOPPING: September Issue + #JJVSHOP Back To School Sale! 20% Off $40 or more!

It’s that time of year again! Back to school means getting back to cool!

If you picked up any September issue magazine lately, you will find that the key to your fall makeup will be filled with wines, burgundies, berries, and Bordeaux.  Try my favorite lip pencil by NARS.  It’s matte, and the perfect hue for this season!  Or try Laura Mercier on for size in this amazing shade.

It will be the perfect pair with black on white stripes, chevron, plaids and houndstooth!

All that glitters is truly gold this season as well, with metallic leathers in gold silver, bronze and gilver.  Try woven metallics too, with embroidered eye-popping all-over prints, metallic knits and novelty prints.

via Style Pantry

Got an animal print fetish? You’re in luck- plush animal prints and outrageous imaginative faux furs are where it’s at!  Try a cheetah print faux fur coat over an emerald green number, and see what you think!


The best part is, we have it all at JJV.  With new listings weekly, you’re sure to get your fall fashion fix- no matter your flavor.

Get all of your back to school gear from now until Friday (08/30) at a sweet 20% off when you spend $40 or more! Just use this code at checkout.


Happy fall, everyone (my favorite time of year)!

UPDATE: #CyberMonday Shopping Sales & DIY Furniture

Okay so you know that the Cyber Monday sale ends at 11pm on Tuesday 11.29.11!  You will automatically get 10% off and free shipping by using the code CYMON11 at checkout on ETSY or JJVSHOP.COM!

Also, after going on a few thrifting trips, I have a few haul and DIY progress photos to share with you!

First, I got this super cute bookshelf, German-made mod tea cup set, and a mid century goose neck brass lamp.  I love them!  I’m going to do a little rehab on the shelf and I’ll show you guys later.

My favorite part about this set is the cup rest in the saucer is off-center.

Isn't this lamp awesome!?

Also, I’ve been working on some good ‘ol diy projects around here.  I recently came across 6 America-made plywood dining chairs.  They needed some TLC and a little handy fix it know-how.  Here are some progress photos!

I love how aerodynamic and sleek these look now. Talk about gorgeous.

No- it's not still wet. It's just THAT shiny!

Okay, well- I’m off to list more items in the shop!  Happy holidays and happy shopping!
