Salezzzz.

In Accessories, Beach Wear, Brights!, Denim, Dream Wear, Fresh Combos on May 22, 2015 at 8:35 am

Guys.  There are way too many rad sales happening right now.  I’m pretty much losing my head.  Not only is Nordstrom having it’s lovely Half-Yearly Sale, but Barney’s Warehouse has an extra 40% off purchases, Moda Operandi is offering up to 50% off, and Shopbop just threw a ton of goodies in their sale section.  Time to roll up your sleeves, throw on some flats, and open your wallet.

Pro tip: the above outfits are probably the least shopping-friendly outfits…ever.  I like to wear a dress I can pull on and off quickly (this Sundry maxi is conveniently on sale) and slip-on sandals (love this Ancient Greek pair, on sale as well).  A roomy tote (this one by Cuyana is…perfection) is the perfect companion.

My sale picks:

+This Kate Spade pump in the denim — HOMIGOD.  I need them.

+Frame denim is THE denim line du jour.  These cut-offs are calling my name.

+How fresh is this little romper for putzing around the house or garden on a hot summer day!?

+Aquazzura sandals, 50% off.  Get ’em while they’re hot.

+I’ve been contemplating this Rachel Zoe dress for my 5-year anniversary this summer (in the white).  How adorbs!?  (And how appealing now that it’s 50% off…)

+These Alejandro Ingelmo shoes are BANANAS.  I mean, bananas.

+Such a cool cover-up — this is the kind of thing that people will think is some fancy brand from the South of France.  Love pieces like this that look super upscale and “brand-less.”

+Black Jack Rogers feel fresh for this summer.  Imagine with white jeans and a black-and-white striped tee or a simple chambray dress.  And when they’re on sale…hold me back…

+I’m obsessed with the line Miguelina, but their prices are so steep for beachwear!  So…scoop them up on sale.  This fiery red caftan is a dream come true, but these neon mini-dress cover-ups are so affordably tempting…

+The Jennifer Zeuner ear crawlers have been marked down further (!!!!)

+These sorts of blouse-y/tunic-y/embroidered tops are my jam in the summer.  Pair with white skinnies and Jack Rogers and you’re on fuego.

+The sweetest, prettiest skirt from a super high-end brand.  I’d pair this with nude or white pumps and a Tippi sweater (in the sweet blossom color) for a work event.

+Mara Hoffmann can do no wrong.  This gauzy maxi is evidence.  And it’s not just because my sister is head designer there…

+This is the chic-est, yet most understated dress ever.  I just look at it and think of a lady with manicured nails and an impeccable shoe collection that casually throws a Bottega Venetta tote around.  She also spends summers at Cannes.

+Fun, breezy beach coverup.  Love the mint color.

+I already own this jumpsuit or I’d order it STAT.  Love it with sky-high heels and huge earrings.  Fits like a dream.

+This is not even my style, but crochet is having a moment right now in the swimwear world.  Very Bo Derek.  Conveniently on sale in case the fad fades quickly.

+This is the gown of a lifetime.  Love love love.

Ear-ie.

I’ve been a little intimidated by the ear jacket trend, even though Molly Sims tells me it’s OK.  I’m just not a punky, piercing-centric kinda gal.  But I have to admit I’ve been warming up to some of the more dainty ear crawler styles.

I could even get behind this more aggressive look here on a dramatic night out.  (Get the look above with this pair of Bauble Bar crawlers, $32).  What do you think?  Recoiling in disgust or nodding in interest?  Below, a few of the items I’ve checked out, curiously:

+Pearls are always a good way to ease into an edgy trend.  These are on sale for $200.

+These are oh-so-chic in all the right ways (Elizabeth + James, $175).

+Fun little slashes of bling (Gorjana, $60).

+Stars are kind of funky and fun (Jennifer Zeuner, $176).

+Ear crawlers with training wheels — these are more like straight-up earrings (BaubleBar, $32).

These Aquazzura pumps ($750)…are everything.  I mean: are you serious?!

It’s just hit after hit with this brand.  These are ladylike perfection, and I’d pair them with one of the following:

+Halo necklace ($1,625);

+Valentino silk playsuit (on sale for $976);

+Illesteva shades ($178);

+Michael Kors crochet scallop dress ($272);

+Fluffy white stool ($300);

+Narcisco Rodriguez for Her (one of my favorite scents — $96);

+Racerback camisole ($66) and shorts;

+Hourglass blush ($35 — I just recently picked up their ambient lighting powder, which came highly recommended from blogger Natalie Merrilyn);

+My favorite splurge of a hairbrush (Mason Pearson, $110);

+YSL clutch ($1,150);

+Pink cami (Tibi, on sale for $147);

+My favorite rose bubbly (Mirabelle by Schramsburg, $25);

+Swirl clutch (on sale for $60).
