Oak + Fort’s BOGO Sale

It’s quite possibly the best sale I’ve heard of all year. For this weekend only, one of my favorite retailers, Oak + Fort, is hosting a buy one get one free sale on select items. And no, they aren’t just accessories and little things. They are GOOD items. I’m talking dresses and outerwear from their collection – you know, the type of things you need this winter season. The sale is happening in stores and online, but personally, I would visit the store to get a better look at the merchandise and to be able to have the ability to try things on. Unfortunately, I’m not going to be participating (it’s taking all of my willpower not to) only because I need to focus on xmas shopping right now for my own family!

You can check out some of what is being offered here.

The Closet: November 2017

Solo Six – Jody Cardigan – Charcoal – $295

This month, we are ALL about the cozy cozy. I’ve always been the kind of girl that loved being dressed up at all times. I didn’t understand the concept of sweats or the appeal to wearing pajamas to places even on elementary spirit days. No thanks, I’ll be putting on a dress and y’all can wear your fuzzy slippers. If I got close to anything considered loungewear, it would be leggings only. For the most part, this has carried over into my adult life, but I will admit that several times a week, I come home and immediately change out of my “work” clothes and into something a little less constricting. As much as I love my structured denim, there’s something about them that feels unnatural pairing them with my wool socks underneath my softest blanket. Also now that I’m living up in San Francisco, more than ever, I’m embracing layering and learning how to get really creative with my pairings.

Weekday Drapey Knit Coat$127 – $88.50

adidas UltraBOOST 4.0

I’ve had my eye on the UltraBOOSTs for some time now and in a way, so have all of you because I keep posting about them! Each new color and addition that keeps coming out, I add to my list, but just when I think I’ve made up my mind about one, another one pops up and I feel like I need to have that one too. Readers, are any of you owners and do you have any recommendations for one that is your fave? I could really use some help! The UltraBOOST 4.0 just released four new colors – 3 of which I’ve featured here – (Multi, white, and black.) How is a girl to decide, really? These are being sold for $180 USD online over at adidas.

Five Favorite Things: Abercrombie & Fitch

Plaid Flannel Shirt$58 – $29

We’re doing things a little bit differently today! Normally, we would call this post “Five Favorite Pins,” but instead I’m changing it up because I want to write about something that’s quite important to me. All year, I have had to defend Abercrombie & Fitch to friends of mine. I would tell people that they’ve changed, their stores are no longer as fragrant as they used to be, their brand is labeled as obnoxiously across all of their tees, in some cases, you may not even see the moose! On top of that, you won’t be unhappy with their prices. On a couple of occasions this year, I’ve been in their stores and walked out a happy customer with basics that I never thought I’d be able to find there. So instead of just telling you this time around, I’m going to show you with 5 recent pieces from their website that I would purchase today (if I had the money!)

You should know though that they are having a massive sale because of Black Friday. You’re welcome!

Nike’s Air Presto Ultra SI Black

I could be very happy with an all-black sneaker, but when the soles look like the freakin’ galaxy, oh my goodness. I love that these soles also match the laces which kind of pulls everything together for one cohesive look. Though they seem heavy in the photograph, these are actually light-weight and come with mesh, TPU, and water resistant panels to help keep these in great condition.

These are currently being sold on Feature for $135 USD.

The “Metallic” Pack

Don’t these just remind you of scales? When I was kid, I dreamed of being a mermaid just like Ariel. In in my college years when Veronica and I discovered a blanket and a sleeping bag that had a mermaid’s tail at the end of it, we knew I probably had to have it. But, were any of those items going to be as functional as a pair of sneaks? Like yes, but I’m trying to not make it to hard on myself to just express that I want these more. These Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 sneakers in “metallic” are stunners! My favorite is the silver (above) but it also comes in black and Anaconda Green.

These will be available for purchase online at Nike’s website and in various retailers very soon!

Everlane’s New Line of Puffers

There’s nothing I love more than a good puffer jacket. They are the ultimate cozy item and what I like the most is that they keep all of the warmth in while still being extremely lightweight. Everlane just announced that they were releasing their new line of puffer jackets and since I happened to be in Everlane just yesterday, I decided to try one out and walked around the store like I kind of already owned it. The closest thing I have to a puffer jacket is probably my Patagonia, but it’s not as puffy as I would have liked. The Everlane jacket brings that and provides extra coverage with the mock neck top.

Each jacket is filled with Primaloft, a military-tested insulation that is is both water-resistant and breathable. This material fills the lightweight, short and long styles which are made from a soft nylon.

Coming in four colors, the puffer jacket is available in navy, black, burgundy and “rose.” It ranges in price starting at $90 – $170. The jacket is available to everyone starting tomorrow!

Reformation’s Latest Holiday Campaign

Holiday party season is just around the corner already and for the first time ever, it looks like I’ll be attending two! My company has decided to postpone theirs until early next year, but in December, I’ll be joining Eric and Mandi for theirs at the MOMA in San Francisco. Talk about an amazing venue! I learned a very important lesson a couple of years ago that there can be a time when it is too early to shop for a holiday party dress ie) 5 months before, but this time of year is the sweet spot. Elynn told me yesterday too that the good thing about having a holiday party after the new year means that all the dresses will be on sale!

In Reformation’s latest campaign, we found ourselves loving just about everything in the collection. Another thing to note in this campaign is that instead of using models, the brand tapped into a few successful businesswomen of our time. They may not be models by profession, but if we didn’t know that fact, we wouldn’t have even thought otherwise! I’m never NOT a fan of campaigns using real women and modeling amazing pieces.

KITH x adidas

Will we ever have enough millennial pink? At this point, probably not. These sneakers remind me of the Museum of Ice Cream. What I’m particularly excited about though is that this is a collaboration between KITH and adidas for UltraBOOST. The color itself was made to represent the Miami Flamingos soccer team, which is news to me, but we’re all for it! My favorite is the top only and not because I don’t love the color block below, but just because I could do without all the labeling.

Both pairs will be released tomorrow and will be available online at KITH and their shops beginning at 11:00AM EST.

The Closet: October 2017

Need Supply Co. Farrow Manor Skirt – $78

This is bulkiest post we’ve had in quite some time! Can you tell that we’re getting colder in San Francisco now? We’ve got a few winter coats in here, but also a few accessories that I’ve had my eye on as well. Sweaters completely dominate this post though. It’s all I ever want to wear every day now and for good reason. I think I work my best and my hardest when I’m most comfortable and most comfortable to me just means “most cozy.”

The Closet: September 2017

Shoe Spotlight: PUMA Tsugi Blaze

After all the posts we’ve written on the many sneakers we’ve been lusting after the last few months, I figured it was finally time to create an actual series for it. Who knew that there could be so many variations of millennial pink in existence? What I love about this pair is the pink/white combo, but more importantly – these laces! The textures in the sneaker are also a main highlight for me. My very first pair of PUMA’s actually were partially suede so seeing these feels like I’m paying homage to them in some way. The asymmetrical look of the Tsugi Blaze make these such a versatile pair.

They are currently being sold on Titolo for $129.90

A Metallic Nike Air Max 97 Ultra

For the last few months, we have been jotting down some of our favorite sneaker releases (mainly from Nike!) and while we think we’re going to take a plunge on one of them, another release always turns everything upside down. How is a girl supposed to decide when you’ve got all the hue of millennial pink?!

It’s a tough decision and the gist of this is – I’m not about to make a decision now. This metallic Nike Air Max 97 Ultra though is something out of a dream. Have you ever seen anything like this. I’m mesmerized by all of the maroon bands and imagine that it’s a pair that feels so smooth to the touch. The official color is “Metallic Mahogany” and you can swipe these from Titolo for $220 USD.

Fall 2017 – Favorite Picks from Aritzia

Rains Jacket – $125

Don’t worry, we’re still trying to enjoy as much of the summer as we can and for those that live in San Francisco, you know it isn’t very long. The changing of the seasons is always so exciting for me though! I’m very fortunate that I’ve lived in areas that experience all four of them. Imagine if you had to wear the same wardrobe year round? The swapping in and out is really the best part, wouldn’t you agree?

If I could shop at one place for the rest of my life, it would be Aritzia. I have a good relationship with the retailer and even more so with the ladies down at The Valley Fair shopping mall! S/O to the ones that always bring me the best pieces that I always end up buying. <3

As we head into fall, I’m already thinking about how to revamp my wardrobe especially one that is appropriate for the girl now living back in the city again. Here are my favorite picks, but don’t be alarmed – some of them aren’t just “fall” specific.

adidas “Semi Flash Orange”

It wouldn’t be a normal week at Yow Yow! if we didn’t have some sort of sneaker coverage, right? I’ve been thinking about my loyalties this week because I grew up on Nike, but more recently, I’ve been daydreaming about adidas. It’s kind of like that love affair that came out of nowhere. Over the weekend, I also downloaded the adidas All Day Fitness app which has transformed not only my mornings, but um… my life? With my time back not commuting, I actually end up waking up around the same time just out of habit, but instead I’m using this time working out before I head into the office and the All Day app helps me do that. I want to get into more of this, but we’ll have to save that for another post because right now, I’m all about this sneaker.

The adidas Originals Stan Smith Primeknit now comes in this very cool “Semi Flash Orange.” Subtle, but just enough color to pop! Oh my goodness it looks so cozy, I just want to cuddle up with it now and you know, have them at home right next to my Nike Flyknits. ;) We kid. They would be on opposite ends of the room.
