The Fashion Magpie End of Year Sales

End of Year Sales.

So many great sales going on at the moment. My best find so far was my favorite pair of running shoes, marked down, plus an extra 30% off automatically applied at checkout. If you have tiny feet like me, you are in luck, as they have a few left in a 5.5. I also found these shoes discounted (not quite as deeply) in more sizes here and here. I tried Hokas earlier this year but found them heavier/clunkier than the Nikes so went back to the ones I love most. If you are a serious/regular runner, I know you are supposed to go to a store to be properly fitted (a task I still have yet to undertake), but these Nikes just do it for me. They are so lightweight — I barely notice I’m wearing shoes when I have them on — but are more cushioned than other similar styles. Very excited to have found a fresh pair in basic black for under $90.

While on the fitness track, I also bought myself another Swiftly Tech top and one of these pima cotton singlets (only $19!), both marked down at Lululemon. These are great basics and I feel the pieces from this brand last an eternity. I would size up in these, as with nearly all of their clothes. I am regularly a size 0 in other brands but size up to a 2 or 4 at Lululemon. Life is too short for too-tight fitness clothes.

Two other fitness finds for a bargain: this Nike essential running windbreaker (extra 30% off in cart, meaning only $50), which is very tempting to me. I currently use and love my Marmot Precip (<<on sale in select colors here), which is a fantastic utility jacket whether hiking, exercising, traveling, etc — but I do think the back pocket on the Nike one would be helpful and I wonder if the Nike is a tiny bit more breathable? The Marmot has side vents you can open, which are handy, but it can get VERY sweaty in there. Last but not least, this longline sports bra from Spanx (40% off) turned my head. I really love the length of my Beyond Yoga ones and this one looks similarly appealing, and the color is cool, too.

Over at Nordstrom: these cashmere turtlenecks are 40% off and I love it in the black/white stripe (La Ligne vibes) and pastel pink.

P.P.P.S. My mom tucked these silk hair ties (also avail on Amazon Prime for next day delivery) into my stocking and…where have these been my whole life? I’m strangely obsessed with them. They are so much easier to tie on than standard elastics but don’t dent hair and still hold everything in place (unlike hair clips, which often let my hair out). I have been using them to tie my hair back while washing my face.
