Weekend Update

Sale PSA: Some great items went on sale today! First is a light tweed/terry mix knit jacket from Caslon, perfect for layering and in three great neutral colors, now under $40, next is a thicker but still soft and cozy sweater scuba jacket from Vince in gray and black, now 40% off. A great armor print neoprene dress from Clover Canyon is now nicely under $200, and finally if you’re starting to layer up for fall, I’d check out these classic wool/cashmere shawls from Nordstrom – they’re a staple for me at work, in my car, on planes, at home – now under $80,

I like Tadashi because the brand’s gowns are usually nice quality, while still being affordably priced. The dress above is well under $300, and comes in a huge array of colors, sizes, and even petites!
