You heard it here first people, something big is coming your way in seven days.
I can't reveal just yet what our black Friday deals will be, all I can say is you're not gonna want to miss this!
When you think about black Friday often only big retail chains come to mind, but don't forget to support all your local business on black Friday as well!
You'll totally get to avoid all the craziness at the mall and still nab some stellar deals.
You also will not have to wake up at an un godly hour to get your shopping done, or even worse never go to sleep the night before to get the shopping done.
Seriously everyone needs a solid 12 hours of sleep after post Thanksgiving food coma.
So do yourself a favor this black Friday,don't get trampled at the mall fighting off a soccer mom for the last cute sweater in your size.
Come visit us down on Gaines and grab some great deals without the added stress ( I'm sure the relatives you have visiting for the holiday have already given you enough of that)
And don't forget to shop local!!
Until next time,
Hi guys! So I know break is coming( actually it can't come fast enough) but don't forget to come by the store before you head home! We have so many cute new arrivals and restocks in the store!
So the restocks I'm most excited about are the custom tees! We printed so many this week in preparation for the Florida game. If you haven't grabbed one yet this fall this week will be your best chance. We seriously have so many cute ones right now and don't forget guys if you don't see one you want we will always take your custom orders. (just be sure to place them soon so you have them in time to whoop some Gator booty)
So even though I have way too many halters i couldn't resist this one. The Fringe is so cute and adds a little more coverage which is always welcome, especially with game day falling so soon after Thanksgiving .
Seriously though how can you resist these babies? They're just so fun and i love how they look paired with boyfriend jeans and chucks.
I decided to stray from my die hard love for halters and try something a little different. I chose this t-shirt because the cut in the front makes it super trendy while also being super comfy at the same time ( can't beat that). These vintage mom jeans I found on the back rack were just right for the look and the mocha suede booties tied it all together. Im seriously so bad at putting together outfits on game day I can never find something thats comfortable to be in all day but these booties are just the right height that they don't kill you feet!
Of course I could never forget about my absolute favorite custom item in the store right now! The lace up sweatshirts *heart eyes* but these aren't the same sweatshirts I gushed about in last weeks post. We decided to change them up a little, they are now available with black or tan trim and the option of going with the collar or going collar-less. Now I can actually get away with wearing one of these every day! Ill just have to get one in every color, problem solved.
We also restocked on the JLP shirts and customized a bunch of them! I call these ones sushi kitty, and I really love sushi kitty, he's pretty rad.
Shushi kitty had me feeling pretty psychedelic, especially with my oversized sunnies
Okay this one I'm super excited about guys and you all should be as well! We finally printed these gorgeous tees with the Olde Fields logo on it! The logo is printed in this really pretty silver ink that unfortunately my flash ruined and the t-shirt it's self is this lovely dark shade of green.
We also restocked some old favorites, I personally love all of these they're so easy to throw on for class on nice breezy days!
This new arrival came just in time for Thanksgiving! It's so comfy I can't wait to wear it all day and not feel like I have an uncomfortable food baby after I go back for my fourth plate. The ribbed knit material is so nice and it's just thick enough to not have to be worn with a sweater if you're headed somewhere not too chilly. I loved pairing it with these suede booties again, I found this great long good necklace that really tied it all together. At least this year i'll look like I have my life together when it comes time for the dreaded family interrogation (seriously though I need to get my life together people.)
Okay guys I saved the best for last, this vintage silk windbreaker is one of a kind. I found it while browsing though the vintage rack and haven't stopped thinking about it since, Priced at only 30$I don't see it sticking around for long, its just one of those pieces you don't see all the time. I paired it with a faux sueded baseball cap and a Tallahassee tee tied in a knot to try and achieve my once again basic Kylie Jenner vibe.
So don't forget to come see us this week before you head on your way to turkey town! ( and seriously if the windbreaker is still here after break it's coming home with me forever people, I'm sorry I gave you all fair warning)
Until next time,
It’s no secret that trendy game day tees and sweatshirts are all the rage this football season. It’s also no secret we have been HAM this fall over at Olde Fields. If you haven’t been in the store in a while you probably recall that we always cut up tees into cut fringe or crop tops. Well, this fall we have taken it to a whole new level of Pintrest craftiness.
Honestly there are so many cute new things I cant even show them to you all at once so I’ll be posting one new custom item a week and showing you guys how I wore it! Some of the things we now have include; adorable game day halters, beach dyed shirts, and my personal favorite the new lace up sweatshirts! Also don’t forget guys…we do CUSTOM ORDERS!!! So if we don’t have exactly what you’re looking for we can make it for ya !
These sweatshirts are so perfect for the nice cool weather we have been having lately and they are seriously so comfy guys I have to force myself to not wear mine every day. They’re basically everything I wish for in an article of clothing because well it’s a sweatshirt first of all and nothing is more comfy than a sweatshirt obviously! But besides the comfort factor they’re super stylish so I actually look like I tried when I wear mine, not like I just rolled out of bed and threw it on which is usually the case.
They are so versatile; you can dress them down for class with boyfriend jeans and sneakers, or dress them up with thigh-high boots and distressed shorts for happy hour or brunch.
I decided to pair mine for the game tomorrow with a black lace bralette, black jean shorts and thigh high black boots, for accessories I added a grey faux suede hat and oversized circle sunnies (perfect for hiding the hangover bags on my eyes)
Yes I’m totally going for a very Kylie Jenner esque vibe… I’m basic some times people deal with it.
Here is some pics of me trying to be a model at Madison Social for your enjoyment:
So yeah guys, I love the lace up sweatshirts and I know you will too. Aside from the instant comfy supermodel I feel like every time I put mine on, I also didn’t break the bank buying mine! I mean seriously girls I’ve see some places up charging up to 100$ for one of these babies. But you can come grab one for yourself from only 40-45$. That’s such a good deal you might just have to grab one for you roommate as well! So come hang with me tomorrow Market Wednesday and see what all this lace up sweatshirt hype is about! Also don’t forget to check the blog next week for the next featured custom item.
Until next time,
Game day is coming, also it's kind of cold so in the words of John Snow winter is also apparently coming. In preparation for Friday's game don't forget to stop by the store and get all your game day gear!
1.You’ve got an hour in between classes; yes you said you would use that hour to get some homework done. But come one, you know that’s not going to happen. Here is what’s really going to happen; you’re going to get to Stroz you’ll even get inside, then your stomach will grumble, the irresistible smell of overpriced pastries and holiday themed drinks will waft through the air. Starbucks will win; you will spend twelve dollars on a Venti (because you’re extra and you know it) Pumpkin Spice Latte and a banana bread loaf because the banana part makes it healthy right? After you shovel in the overpriced late breakfast your homework motivation levels will go from 100-0 real quick. You’ll stare out the windows onto Landis, but instead of embracing your laziness and walking out of Stroz to enjoy the beautiful fallish-weather you will plop down in a chair and spend the rest of your hour Facebook staling your ex-boyfriend. Don’t be that person, save those twelve dollars and come buy something cool and enjoy the beautiful fallish-weather with us over in the union. It will be a much better waste of an hour than Facebook stalking and Starbucks munching in Stroz.
2. There’s a ton of cool stuff at market Wednesday. Seriously, last week I found socks with gangster sloths on them, if that’s not cool to you then just stop reading this now.
3. All of the really cool things you see at Market Wednesday are either completely locally made, or supporting local business. I’ll bet you pair of gangster sloth socks you cant find the things you’ll find at the Market anywhere else. So avoid being basic, shop at Market Wednesday instead of just going to the mall.
4. Everything at Market Wednesday is pretty reasonably priced, all of the vendors are catering to college market (obviously) and they do a really good job at it. I recently bought a custom vintage jean jacket for 30$ complete with studs on the collar and all.
5. We bring out a bunch of new arrivals every week, so if you’re too lazy to come by the store to see all of the cute new things we got just stop by our table on the way to class (it’s the next best thing to online shopping).
6. FREE FOOD HELLO PEOPLE!! Market Wednesday is one of the best places to grab a few snack (or 3) on campus. Every week countless tables as well as people from the restaurants in the union walk around passing out free samples. Last week it was cookie brownies from Chilies and I did not even feel bad about going
back for more.
7. Market Wednesday is poppin okay, I don’t know if you can hear the music from your classes but its lit guys. Every week there’s a DJ spinning some crazy (literally they’re crazy like I don’t even know what’s going on half the time) tunes not to mention the step dancers breaking it down.
8.It’s a great chance to get more involved; aside from all the great local vendors there are tons of clubs and organizations out at the Market every week recruiting new people.
9. Sales my friend’s sales! On top of our store already being super reasonably priced we’re handing out 10% off coupons with every purchase made at Market Wednesday this week good for your next purchase *commence happy dancing*.
10. It’s a must to check off your list if things to do in Tally before you graduate, I mean are you even really a Nole if you’ve never been to Market Wednesday?
So there you have it people, ten solid reasons why you need to get your butts over to Market Wednesday. (And don’t forget to pick me up a coffee on your way over)
Until next time,
