Sales + Budget Buys

Micropost: SEA on Sale + Bump-Friendly Wedding Guest Dresses.

By: Jen Shoop

Yesterday, I was helping a Magpie find a suitable, bump-friendly spring wedding guest dress. I shared all my top picks here* (none of them are maternity — would work with bump, or without! — and I think she is buying this one!), but in the course of research, learned that SEA has marked down a ton of fabulous pieces, plus is offering an extra 15% off sale prices with code SALE21. This means you can score this gorgeous floral maxi, originally almost $500, for $168. That’s right — Anthro prices for designer duds. Pretty good! A few other pieces not to miss from the sale…

SUCH A FUN FLEECE (SEEN ABOVE)

I LIVE IN THESE KINDS OF DRESSES (ALSO THIS)…SORT OF THE MODERN DAY HOUSE DRESS! NON-CONSTRICTING, MODEST IN LENGTH, AND SO EASY TO THROW ON AND PUTZ AROUND THE HOUSE IN

THIS FUNKY SHEEP SWEATER IS IN MY CART…SO FUN! ALSO LOVE THIS EMBROIDERED FRUIT ONE

YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH WHITE/ECRU DRESSES, AND THIS ONE IS SO ROMANTIC, AND ONLY $150 WITH CODE

*I should note most of my bump-friendly picks skew towards second trimester bumps as unfortunately I think once you get up to the 8 and 9 month range, you just have to suck it up and go with a proper maternity dress.

On the subject of fun dresses, I had been planning to throw a decent sized party for Mr. Magpie’s 40th (!) birthday this January, but in the shadow of omicron, felt that wasn’t right. We’ll be scaling down and having just a handful of his closest buddies instead, which — frankly — feels perfect, because he doesn’t see them as often any more and I know he’ll have a blast. Still, the occasion calls for something daringly festive, and I don’t care if it’s the dead of winter. My dream pick is this Borgo de Nor, but I also love (!) this Celia B, this Fanm Mom, this Alemais, or — entirely different direction — this feather-trim mini. Fun!
