Style notes.

Style Notes for the look above include:

Calla Pleated Trousers:

I first purchased these pants in black earlier this summer. Now I’ve picked them up in Stone and Hunter Green as well. They hit the waist at a flattering place, have a gorgeous effortless energy and resist wrinkles. Highly recommended.

Happiness Runs Tank:

If having at least 7 of these tanks is any indication of my love for them, then my affinity is clear! Ribbed (so you can skip a bra) with great and comfortable support. This tank ranks amongst my favorites and it comes in an array of colors.

Dioract Sandals:

These are luxurious splurge that I’ve worn steadily for a year. These feel like your walking on clouds and instantly elevate an outfit while still feeling fresh and casual. Put them on your Christmas list!

A Shopping Guide for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Everything In Between

// Sales I’m Currently Shopping // 

Many sales are already in full swing…here are some of my carefully edited recommendations:

What to get and how to save the most!
Agent Nateur products for shopping guide
Agent Nateur…a major part of my skincare routine. Use AGENTRACHEL for 25% off on 11/25 only!

Agent Nateur:

Use code AGENTRACHEL for 25% off site wide. This code is only good on 11/25/22 so I suggest stocking up on your favorites right away. I use this clean and opulent brand every single day and will be replenishing my own supply during this sale! I suggest the hyaluronic acid-rich Holi Water (the bounciest, most transformational toner), Holi Stick No 5 Deodorant (aluminum-free and all I have used for a year and a half). Also, I will never go back to traditional deodorant. Holi C (an ultra potent vitamin c powder that delivers fast brightening and smoothing results) and the Holi Oil Ageless Face Serum. I just finished my 4th bottle…this serum masterfully takes care of business for the best skin of life.

I also adore the Holi Glow Ageless Eye Serum (de-puffs and hydrates while adding a stunning glow), the new Holi Bright Resurface Glass Face Mask (utterly transformational with every application) and the Agent Nateur Holi Mane.  It has pearl powder and the most premium variety of collagen for hair, skin and nails with next-level strength and health. I don’t go a day without it (and either does my mom).

Some new launches that have also made it into the mix include the Lash + Brow Serum (masterful results with zero irritation), the Body Balm (glowing skin with a lush, weightless texture…insane!), the Holi Body Wash (a shower must to cleanse and refine skin…I love using it for the closest shave, too),  Filter Face Cream (hydrates with a velvety finish that’s great for all skin types including oily) and the Lactic Acid Cleanser Duo, which removes every last trace of makeup with the oil and then leaves skin absolutely glowing thanks to potent yet gentle lactic acid.

So many of the above Agent Nateur products are repurchases for me…I try a lot of skincare here at BPHQ but this brand is consistently in my top 3 thanks to its impeccable ingredients, versatility for all skin types and extreme efficacy…my skin has truly never been better.

Armani Beauty:

30% off site wide…I suggest the brilliant Power Fabric Foundation Balm (reviewed countless times on BP), Power Lip 503 (the perfect opaque peachy pink…I’ve purchased 3 tubes!) and the classic Luminous Silk Foundation, which never disappoints.

The BY TERRY Eclat Opulent Serum Foundation


30% off site wide with code BF30…I recommend the gorgeous new *Eclat Opulent Serum Foundation  (also available and on sale at Saks), which has medium coverage and a natural skin finish that makes skin look fresh and creamy all day (worn in the images in this post).

It now comes in six shades. One jar will last forever as a little goes  long way. Also,  each shade is versatile to match a spectrum of skin tones within the range. For example, I can wear, both 4 and 5, depending on the look I want to achieve.

I also recommend the LE Terryfic Glow Advent Calendar (always packed with the best of the best) and the Baume de Rose Lip Care Essentials Set (a cult favorite globally beloved by beauty aficionados).
