Weekend Update

Sale PSA: A simple stacked heel suede sandal with good reviews from Caslon, now under $55, a very chic and sleek wrap dress from Acne, now 55% off, a very pretty bell sleeved silk blouse from Equipment, now 60% off, and a ruffle sweatshirt from Current Elliott, now 33% off (give it a chance! I tried it on and it’s actually very pretty). 

Bloomingdales also started their Friends and Family sale (I’m eyeing these platform sandals from See by Chloe), and a beauty sale for $15 off of every $150 you spend. I’m actually very into this sale because of all the extra free gifts – I love that Estee Lauder bag that you can customize

1. For those looking for a great simple slide sandal for summer – I’d like to suggest these Bottega Venetas.

Bottega Veneta, $620 (also here on Matches if your size is sold out on NAP, plus no tax)

These have been my go to slumming around sandals since the weather got warmer, and they’re perfect for the whole slides trend going on right now, without being so trendy that they’ll look out of date. I love the clean lines, and the leather is soft but sturdy.

Random story – I actually lost my pair for several weeks – they are black and super thin and got trapped under my car seat and I couldn’t even find them when I looked there. I ended up giving up and ordering a second pair, only to find my original pair (before I had worn the second, thank goodness).

There is also this great pool sandal version that is more padded. I think the original is more sleek, but the pool slide looks more comfortable, with a thicker sole.

2. An excellent profile of Peggy Siegal, Oscars strategy extraordinaire, from the NY Times. I love the “game” that goes behind getting Oscar nods and wins each year and follow that with way more interest than the actual awards. So fascinating! Continue Reading
