a little confession: i’m loving this economic slump, if only because we’re getting great deals from stores that are generally notoriously stingy with their discounts. now through sunday, take 20% off any and all jackets and sweaters at shopbop with code SHOPBOPSECRET. since i’ve been lusting after some new outerwear since i first saw the fall runway pictures, i’m viewing this as a sign from above that it’s time to invest.
i hardly know where to begin. i love the structured, military styling on this overcoat by alice + olivia, and that flash of fuschia on the belt and buttons is a perfect touch of color for drab days. but i’ve been after those amazing exaggerated collars since day one, so i’m pretty sure this amazing black felt trench from dolce vita is going to win this time (especially since it’s only about $250 with the code!). shopbop has the best coat selection i’ve seen this fall, hands down – and a really broad price range, which is a nice feature in this category.
the sweater options are a little more challenging for me – unlike a coat, there’s no way i can tell myself i only need one. i look forward to fall all year long – you can take your sun and surf, i’m a sweater girl at heart. this slouchy v-neck is the ultimate weekend sweater, and one i know would spend very little time in my closet. for the week, there’s one 80s trend i’ve been embracing with gusto: the sweater dress. simple, chic, and perfect for fall, my closet will be filled to the brim with these by january. i’m starting with this charcoal wrap dress from DVF, which is classic enough to survive the trend, and cozy enough to remind me of my favorite cardigan.
whatever you’re after for fall, now’s the time to max those credit cards – code SHOPBOPSECRET is only good until sunday!
