+Saks is having a very strange (i.e., amazing) sale — I honestly think some of the items have been accidentally mis-marked down? This perfect SEA top is $48; this elegant navy Shoshanna is $100 (literally perfect for a big work event, a conservative religious ceremony, a funeral — gives me Amal Clooney vibes); this girls’ winter coat from Barbour is about 50% off; and they have several pairs fo Roller Rabbit pajamas for half off, including cute blue stars (bought for micro) and fair isle and sugar plums for this upcoming fall/winter.

+In the process of this move, I finally came to terms with the fact that the interior of my large Cuyana makeup bag had tattered to the point of disrepair. I’ve had these for at least five or six years, and they have been used heavily. I actually have kept most of my everyday makeup in the large one in my bathroom drawer for the past few years — because we have been tight on space, it’s been easier for me to keep my “going out / fun” makeup in separate pouches underneath the sink, and to keep just the pared down, everyday essentials in this makeup bag so it is easy to access on a daily basis. (Can’t wait for my new home, with far more space/storage in the bathroom!). Anyway, the interior started peeling and cracking and there were little bits of the liner all over my cosmetics by the end. I finally threw it away in preparation of this move and bought one of these similar ones from White Elephant Designs as a replacement, since they conveniently sell the small and large sizes separately, and I really only wanted another large size. Woo!

+Lots of great storage pouches and bags here, too.

+Rachel Riley is having a great end-of-season sale — pieces are up to 60% off. Great (!) pieces for special occasions or family portraits — I love this blue toile, this smocked heart (Valentine’s Day!), and this striped/anchor style. Also — this babygro!

+Jacadi end of season sale is delightful, too — I can’t deal with this scallop-trim rash guard bikini, this gingham set for a baby boy, and this scalloped Liberty sunhat.

+Just ordered this Agua x Agua Bendita dress to wear for either my eleven year wedding anniversary (in a month! what!) or a baby shower I have coming up.

+I haven’t had a case on my iPhone for the last two years, but I just saw this Goyard-inspired case and had to have it in pink. I had one similar to this on my old phone and just never upgraded when I got the new model. Little treat to self!

+I saw this bathing suit cardigan (!!!) and bikini duo on interior designer Clary Bosbyshell Welsh and OMG. Do I need this?! She looks incredible!

  1. I feel like Saks does these crazy-low discounts twice a year! I don’t keep a super-close eye on it, since they’re typically not one of my go-to retailers, but I vaguely remember similar deep discounts in the winter, too. I always love your heads-ups about these sales!

    I also saw that yellow set on CBW and was stopped in my tracks — so fetching! I have had great luck with Lisa Marie Fernandez in general, and think the quality of my pieces is great, in case that helps 🙂


    1. Ooh you are really tempting me with the LMF shout-out. I really want that cardi vibe for myself!!
