Delight of the Day 12/16

With Christmas right around the corner, we’re down to crunch time for Christmas gifts. That’s why I was delighted to see today’s Delight of the Day on Lord & Taylor – the Tartan Plaid Scarf, $29.99 with code {FRIENDS}. Tartan is a must for winter, and how can you turn down such a good price? Plus, if you spend over $99, you get free shipping. These. Should. Help.

 p.s. If you wait until Wednesday, December 18 to order, you’ll get free shipping, and it’s still guaranteed by Christmas as long as you order by 2:00 EST! (The promo code is good through the 18th!)

p.p.s. Don’t miss out on Brooks Brothers’ HUGE clearance event. These ballet flats are down to $50!

Serengetee + Krass & Co.

If you have been living under a rock haven’t already noticed, I have a slight obsession with Krass & Co. I’m not quite at full-blown stage 5 clinger status yet, but I’m getting there. So, needless to say, when Pierson approached me about their new line with Serengetee, whose tagline is, “Wear the World. Change the World,”  I was intrigued.

Serengetee started while 3 college kiddos were studying abroad through Semester at Sea. Their goal was to “create a new kind of clothing brand with a simple mission: to connect people to the globe through fabric while giving back to the communities that inspire [their] products. [They] launched Serengetee out of [their] dorm room in the spring of 2012 using every last penny in [their] pockets.” 5% of each purchase goes to one of their 32 causes – depending on what you buy. Pretty amazing, right?

Here’s where Krass & Co. comes in: the two companies created what is probably my favorite collaboration of all time – the America Shorts, $40. (They actually created a whole line that is pretty darn phenom, but you know how much I love America!) A portion of every sale of these shorts will be donated to support Whole Planet’s mission: the alleviation of poverty through microcredit in communities worldwide.

I won’t gush about the quality of the shorts, because you’ve already read 4986734689 posts about them. (Just in case you missed it though, here’s my post about their fall line with a pretty in-depth review!) I will, however, tell you that they may or may not give you super powers, because I ran twice as many bleachers as I normally do when I wore them the first time, and, for my last 5 sets, Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” came on. I can’t make this stuff up, people.

 The team at Serengetee very kindly also sent me their America Tank to review, and it is seriously the most comfortable tank I’ve ever worn. I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t seriously consider blowing off my boyfriend on Saturday to lounge in it all night. (Sorry, Josh – love you!) The proceeds for this one go to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which “serves US military personnel wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families. Supporting Intrepid helps repay heroes for the sacrifices they have made.” Incredible.

 The tanks (plus crew-necks {$26}, v-necks {$26}, racer-backs {$24}, long-sleeves {$28}, and crop-tops {$22})  come with a bunch of different pockets; you can order one with your state’s flag, your fav country’s flag, or other really awesome, colorful prints. I love them for unique (in a good way!) gifts for friends, littles, and fam. Plus, there’s just something about ordering from a company who gives back – don’t you agree?
