Weekend Update

1. This week, it’s all about the sales, baby! I actually am really liking this season’s selection – tons of goodies. I’ve definitely been a little bad (especially considering I can’t even fit into any of the clothes I’m buying – so really just a blind prayer). Instead of a sale PSA today, I thought I’d share some of my favorites.

Nordstrom: These Jimmy Choo sandals (also in lavender, with great reviews), now 40% off, a classic Sandringham silhouette trench from Burberry, now 40% off, Prada platform oxfords, now 40% off.

For some reason, I’ve found that in contemporary, Nordstrom (which is usually my first choice to purchase from) hasn’t put as much on sale as other so I’d check Neiman Marcus and Saks if your piece isn’t on sale. Nordstrom will always price match of course.

 

Matches Fashion: Besides the velvet ballet flats from Miu Miu above, I also love the classic Falabella bag with gold chain, under $530, and a gorgeous spring dress from Isabel Marant (this is one of my favorite dress silhouettes).

Net-A-Porter: This gorgeous Zimmermann dress (which I bought and have both colors of), the classic Rick Owens black biker jacket, now 30% off, classic Smythson notebooks (these also make great gifts), now 30% off, and a classic Kate Moss for Equipment canvas army jacket, now 50% off.

What have you been buying from sales? Please share!

2. A short article, via Refinery 29, about the experience of a “Sugar Baby”. I love reading articles about Seeking Arrangements. I’m always fascinated.

3. I almost feel like J.Crew bashing is getting a little overdone, but still found this NY Times article interesting – Whatever Happened to J.Crew? What do you think of the “No Brainer” items? I’d noticed them on the site but kind of ignore the marketing. There’s some decent pieces though, in my opinion!

4. A random throwback article I came across, via the always wonderful Nora Ephron – My Life as an Heiress.

5. This week, I read and finished Rich People Problems, by Kevin Kwan.

These books are my guilty pleasure and Rich People Problems is the third and final installment of the “Crazy Rich Asians” trilogy. And I’m happy to share that the trilogy definitely finishes off strong – this one is as hilarious and well written as the rest (and possibly even better). There’s less Rachel/Nick, which I was happy about (they’re fine, but I much prefer the other bitchier characters). Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for some light and funny reading, and has a sense of humor.

    I ordered a pair of flat Chloe sandals from Nordstrom. Bergdorfs and Neimans had them, but were sold out in most sizes in tan, although they did have black. I was thinking hard about them for a few days – they were on sale but not at Nordstroms (but the sale price was still high for me). When I checked back to find out about the price matching…they were on sale at Nordstrom for less than the other 2 stores AND they had my size in tan! Sold!

    I bought an IRO jacket from NetAPorter and a suede wrap dress from FRAME. I was so tempted to pick up the Zimmerman dress you mention above but I was worried it was too young for me (I’m 51). I might buy some things from Barney’s, too, but I’m trying not too. 🙂
