To those of you in the United States, I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and are still enjoying a post-Turkey coma.  However, we’re standing on the precipice of Black Friday, so it’s time to regroup. Check out the items linked to above and also included in the Shop the Post widget below which are all. on. sale. today.

If you don’t own a sweater dress like the one pictured today, you need to fix that.  I practically live in this sucker both in and out of the office all winter, so I’ve included many of my favorite sweater dresses below for your browsing pleasure.  I’m also a huge fan of these over-the-knee boots and cozy thigh-high socks for staying warm during my chilly commute in NYC.  Unless you work in a very casual or creative environment, you probably will have to ditch the thigh-high socks and boots upon entrance to the office, but they can make all the difference when braving those soul-crushing winter days in northern climates.  Oh, and they’re kind of really cute too.  So there’s that.
Happy Black Friday, people.  Now go out there (or just shop online… duh) and GET. AFTER. IT.
Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

This little black and white striped top is so much more than a top; it’s a BODYSUIT.
I know.  Your head just exploded.

At the office, I’m a big fan of preventing exposed undies (or worse) when bending over or sitting down.  So check out Bradamant and discover the magic that the bodysuit brings.  Bradamant is offering Classy Cubicle readers 25% off by using the discount code ClassyCubicleGivesATuck.
See what they did there?
Clever.  Verrrrry clever.

Yes.  I’m obsessed with plaid this season.  Deal with it.
While plaid flannel is not for everyone’s workplace, especially those on the more formal side, it can definitely fly in business casual environments if styled the right way.  I picked a fitted plaid flannel shirt with black jeweled buttons and further counterbalanced the traditionally informal textile with slightly dressier elements including these sleek black cropped dress pants and pointed-toe pumps.
For chilly afternoons at my desk, this cable knit cardigan vest is my life-saver. Well, this cardigan and a bottle of whiskey.  The combo really does the trick.
(No, I don’t actually drink whiskey at my desk.)
(That’s what the supply closet is for.)
(Yes, Aunt Susan, that is also a joke.)
