30 Things JS Editors Are Splurging on This November

If you can believe it, the holidays are just around the corner. Thanksgiving comes and goes, then in a flash it's time to dole out the gifts. But before all that, let's treat ourselves to something special, shall we? From an oversized blanket scarf to cult-favorite skincare products, here are all the things JS editors are splurging on this November.

Gretchen Dorosz, Senior Photo Editor

“Maybe it’s because I just returned from a road trip through the Southwest, but I’m very into Western-inspired pieces this season. These Loeffler Randall booties have that trendy Western vibe but aren’t over the top. Plaid is also one of my favorites for fall, and this check skirt is just the right length and would be great with ankle boots and an oversized sweater. This month I’m adding a little excitement to my makeup routine with a baby blue eyeshadow by Kosas (you know we love eyeshadow here at Jetsetter!). The stuff is pretty amazing—I’m not sure how they did it but the formula is fast-drying and crease-resistant, the ingredients are clean, and the colors are vibrant.” 

 

Lindsey Olander, Senior Editor

“I always pick up a new dress for Thanksgiving whose waistline is a little forgiving! I just love the delicate details on this floral number from & Other Stories, like its sheer sleeves and ruffled collar. Because our office is always cold—especially this time of year—I’m also getting a blanket scarf to combat the chill. The bigger, the better. Back home, my bathroom is in desperate need of a refresh that can’t wait ‘til spring, so I added a pair of Snowe hand towels to my cart. They are so soft and fluffy!”

“I’ve been loving the animal print trend that’s been everywhere this fall and I’m leaning into the wild side with my wardrobe. I found these snakeskin print booties to pair with jeans and dresses as the weather gets cooler. The flat heel is a godsend for me (I’m 5’11”) and the soles are comfy enough that I ended a full day of touring Chicago without a single blister. I also recently snagged this cozy leopard cardigan from Anthropologie; it’s so soft and instantly makes every outfit a little bit chicer. Finally, I’m dreading the change of the clocks later this month and the only thing that’s getting me through is the prospect of cozy nights in with a glass of pinot noir. In preparation, I’m adding these sculptural wine glasses to my shopping cart for a touch of style.”

“I’m always on the hunt for a sexy, elegant blouse and I love this one from Frame, with its high neckline, jacquard stripes, and keyhole at the top. I plan to wear it with this classic, surprisingly affordable leather jacket from Mango. And for nights out in NYC, I’ll pair it with this black stretch jersey dress from Norma Kamali—if it’s not too cold out!”

 

David Hattan, Photo Editor

“This month I’m picking up some tried-and-true products that will help prep my skin for the season’s dry air. The first thing I’m grabbing is this face scrub from Kiehl’s. My skin can get a little flaky in the fall, and this scrub gently exfoliates and smoothes. Plus, I love that it has caffeine and menthol, which get me going in the morning. I’m also restocking this Everything Serum from Non Gender Specific. I’ve been using it all year, and my skin looks SO much better than it did before. Lastly, I’m getting another jar of my all-time favorite moisturizer from Aesop. When my skin feels extra dry I put this on before bed and wake up with supple, hydrated skin.”

 

 

Jackie Homan, Style + Travel Editor

“I own way too many pairs of ankle boots, but zero mid-calf pairs—arguably the trendiest look this season. To reconcile, I’m looking into these from 42 Gold. I love the pointed toe and cylindrical heel. My favorite purchase this month is definitely my new wok from Made In. I’ve been trying to cook at home more, and it’s so fun to experiment with high heat, rapid movement methods with this blue carbon steel pan. Lastly, I’m trying out Bathing Culture’s Mind and Body Wash right now. While a body wash may not seem super interesting, this one has a ton of impressive qualities: a woodsy scent inspired by the redwood forests of Northern California; a totally biodegradable, organic formula made of plants and minerals; and bottles made from 100% recycled materials.”

 

Saman Westberg, Style Correspondent

“I got my first pair of Converse Chucks in 5th grade (turquoise!), and I’ve been a loyal fan since. Just recently, I went for the high top flame print in black, but I think the low top rainbow version is pretty cool, too. I’ve also been looking for a pair of jeans in a true black—everything seems to have a washed rinse these days, so I was excited to find these AG bootcut ones. Finally, I very randomly came across this wall hook, and it totally charmed me. Rather than using it as a hook, I envisioned it more as a fun objet d’art, just randomly stuck on a small spot on the wall for interest.”

 

Tyler Schoeber, Production Specialist

“I’m officially on the Everlane bandwagon, and after buying a pair of light corduroys for the start of the season and falling in love, I’m ready for a black pair. Aside from clothing, I have a few home purchases this month. I’m gifting a new coffee pot to the kitchen because my old one just broke, and if I’m being honest, I’ve never been sold on Keurigs. I’ve also been looking at getting some sleek airtight jars, but not for the reason you’d think. Last week I accidentally found myself in a weird YouTube rabbit hole, watching video after video of a man creating little jarred ecospheres from different water sources and became oddly inspired… so, who knows, I think I might start up that hobby.”

 

Kerry Sainato, Director of Product

“I’m super excited to get my Thuma bed frame in November—I’ve been living for years with a basic metal bed frame with *gasp* a bed skirt. I need a grown up bed and the Thuma one fits the bill. I love the modern style; plus, it’s easy to assemble and sturdy. I love that it’s manufactured from reclaimed wood (no MDF here!). Another perk: it’s tall enough to stow my Away luggage underneath! Finally, winter is coming and I am stocking up on Snag Tights. I did a test run with one pair earlier this fall and these are the best, most comfortable tights I’ve ever owned. And they are inexpensive to boot—just $12 (with discounts when you buy multiples)! I’m buying a handful of pairs in lots of colors to brighten up my winter wardrobe, and this time I’m trying their sheers (could pantyhose be a thing again?), too.”

 

Melissa Sciorra, Marketing Manager

“It’s that time of the year when winter jackets are finally coming out of storage in the Northeast. But with only one closet (mind you, small walk-in closet) in my 750 sq. ft. Boston apartment, I needed somewhere to house my boyfriend’s and my bulky and space-swallowing coats. Enter: The Astoria Wardrobe from CB2. It has a chic and beautiful design that is simple enough to place in my living room without begging for too much attention and offers up enough storage for even the bulkiest of our winter jackets. For the colder nights, I recently purchased not one, but two of these amazing Chunky Cabled Fleece Throws from L.L.Bean, because once I felt the soft sensation of the fleece, I knew I wouldn’t be able to share. Lastly, I’ve been saving up some money in my free Digit.co app (which analyzes my spending habits and makes small automatic transfers from my checking account into a savings) and have been eyeing this classic black leather Gucci Ophidia bag. Should I get it? I think yes!”
