Late Friday night update: Saks just kicked off their 25% off Friends/Family sale with code “FRNFAM”. There’s a ton of exclusions, but luckily Saks has labeled all items that are eligible. My picks: a beautiful Alice & Olivia floral gown, a super soft denim A&G jacket, and last but not least, a gorgeous DVF white knit dress that reminds me of Alaia!
Sale PSA: a classic day-to-night subtle polka dot dress from Joie, a little bit Mad Men, now under $200, a clean Michael Kors Saffiano tote in black/tan, now 25% off, a pretty black dress with sheer detailing from Halston, now 65% off, and finally Hue leggings (I wear the denim versions on planes, you’ll need a long shirt), now $30.
Lately I’ve been sharing items that I’ve been adding to my shopping wishlist. This week however, I want to share something that I’ve owned for quite some time and really enjoy wearing. It’s this wonderful “Fiji” bracelet, by Monica Vinader, that was a gift from the lovely J.
I’ve worn it everyday and really like pairing it with my old Cartier rose gold cuff, the two move nicely with each other.
I’ve worn the bracelet almost everyday since I received it in December, and it’s holding up nicely. I even love to play with the little cord, pushing the metal toggles back and forth, especially when I’m bored in meetings (!) and it’s still pristine! Really recommended and a nicely priced piece too, that you can wear everyday. I’ve already given another one of these to a friend, who loves hers too!
2.A very old article but one that I find still worthy of sharing – one of my favorite movie reviews of all time, by Roger Ebert, giving a well deserved written lashing of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. My husband made me watch this movie with him as one of our first dates and to this date I still bring it up. I can forgive, but will never forget!
Also if you want to read some more funny reviews from Ebert, this is a great summary, via Buzzfeed.
