I feel like spring sale season really snuck up this year…I wasn’t prepared at all! I barely have my wishlist done, and now a bunch of items are on sale…awesome. It’s finally time for some of those super high prices we’ve seen come down closer to earth. Here are some of my selections – these are from Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks, which all started their designer sales.
Bags – left to right:
Prada Daino Small Double Bag (40% off/$1560): This is one of those workhorse bags that you’ll end up using a lot, in my opinion, due to the durable pebbled leather and the adjustable strap that you can use crossbody. The size isn’t too big, yet holds a ton. There’s enough structure to use it for work, yet it’s not too formal for the weekends. The type of bags that Prada does best. I also love this suede double Prada bag…so luscious, and also 40% off.
Proenza Schouler Courier Backpack (40% off/$1005): Lately I’ve been quite into a good backpack. After having a kid, I just appreciate their functionality so much more. If I didn’t already have my Soie Cool, this would be a likely candidate for my bag wardrobe. Super chic!
Fendi 2Jours Petite Saffiano Shopper (40% off/$1330): I’ve mentioned a few times how much I like this bag – a friend of mine has it and I always admire it on her. A sleek little crossbody tote that fits more than you might think. It’s beautiful and seems very well made.
Honorable mention but not pictured: this lovely Gucci bamboo shopper (I love almost all Gucci products with bamboo). Looks super practical, flattering, and on sale is under $1200.
Also adding – this Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir bag, in beige and fuschia tones, also 40% off!
Shoes – left to right:
Manolo BB Pump (40% off/$357) : The classic BB pump in blue suede, in a lower heeled version so that you can actually wear them longer (like in the office, etc). Love this striking deep azure shade.
Aquazzura Colorado Peep Toe Booties (40% off/$535): I’ve tried these on and they are so good. Really comfortable and gorgeous leather. The reviews are all correct. These are on my buy list! I love the little tassels too.
Jimmy Choo Denim Pumps (30% off/$417): Because it’s actually really hard to find a pair of great denim pumps without looking like you’ve raided a 90’s J. Lo wannabe closet (I speak from personal experience). They’re also available at Nordstrom for 40% off, but almost entirely sold out (but I’d keep checking back if you’re determined to get the bigger discount).
Ferragamo Laser Cut Varina flat (40% off/$357): One of my favorite flats, in a beautiful airy leather for summer. Neiman Marcus also has these, but only 30% off, with many more sizes. You can also find the Vara version (with a slight chunky heel), 40% off in a lovely pink.
Clothes – left to right:
Erdem Flounce Dress (40% off/$597): I have a special place in my heart for Erdem dresses, and love all of mine. I shamefully have at least two Erdems still to be worn, but I still love shopping for more. I have a problem. This floral one is in a classic Erdem silhouette, and the nipped in waist is so flattering.
For those who don’t like florals, I also love this black lace little number, also 40% off (and it has sleeves!).
Burberry Taffeta Trench Coat (40% off/$900): I love pink trench coats. I want one very, very much. I think I will add one this season…it’s just a matter of which one. I’ll be stalking this one to see if my size pops back.
Isabel Marant Leopard Coat (30% off/$738): It’s leopard! It’s Isabel Marant! It has those great cropped bracelet sleeves, so it’ll layer nicely with a sweater underneath. A great pick for those looking for a classic leopard coat.
Carven Circle Hem Dress (40% off/$570): This dress has been on my wishlist. I love a good white dress. My favorite details on this one are the slightly architectural neck and the great hem of course. Very mod and the kind of dress which looks better on with some movement.
You can also find the black on sale for 40% off, here.
What are you eyeing this sale season?
