Have You Been Shopping?

Sale PSA: A camel knit wrap dress from DVF, now 40% off, a pretty embroidered mini dress from Loveshackfancy, now $237, comfortable slide sandals from Halogen, now under $55, and this great tie sleeve trench, also Halogen, now under $95 (I really like this – so easy and flattering). 

Edited to add – the first designer sale has begun! Matches for up to 50% off. Maybe I’ll finally be pulling the trigger? Some picks include pretty red bow flats from Prada, now under $470, an oversized knit cable cardigan by See by Chloe, now 50% off, a slouchy alpaca blend sweater from Weekend Max Mara, now $175, and an adorable heart leather pouch/clutch from Anya Hindmarch, now $238

Oh! And Net-A-Porter too, also up to 50% off. I really like these Mansur Gavriel white pumps, now just $190 (selling fast, bookmark and check back if yours is sold out), Simon Miller lunchbag clutch, now under $250, and Miu Miu crystal embellished pumps, very wearable with a fun twist, 40% off. 

Have you been shopping lately? Designer stuff? I haven’t (with the exception of a few goodies). It kind of seems like an overall thing, no? Like the Black Friday notices have been way less aggressive this year, though just now they’ve started to slowly ramp up. I’ve been hearing that there has been way too much designer buying (on the side of the stores that is, not that of the consumer), that stores are cutting back. A stylish friend recently told me that The Line’s New York location will be closing. Is this true, everything I’m hearing in whispers about the economic environment for fashion (and especially at the designer price point level)? Can anyone with knowledge shed light?

Nice for Max Mara, not nice on me

For me personally, I’ve cut back on my clothing purchasing for sure. I’m still buying, but mostly basics, things that I know will work (accessories, of course, are the exception). It also helps that a lot of the trends that I like this year are things that just look awful – like those adorable teddy coats like the one above! They just swamp me and even when I wear them there’s this simultaneous feeling that I’m already starting to get sick of the trend.  Continue Reading
