friday finds: the july 4th sale edition

i can’t even begin to get into all of the sale wonderfulness going on across the web this weekend – it is, after all, the holiday weekend during which we celebrate our forefathers’ dedication to bargain shoe shopping for all.


anyway.  first up, sigerson morrison (and it’s baby sister, belle) are now down to 50% off online.  this translates to $200-300 shoes from sigerson, and a big pile of under-$100 options from belle.  too good to pass up?  unquestionably.  now if only they’d mark down my booties already!  (a little tip: their sale page is quite temperamental, but if you plug in your preferred size, it seems to calm down dramatically.)  the styles below are all from belle, and all under $125:

and the next most exciting sale on my list is allsaints, who i’ve raved about before.  those sale-shopping geniuses over at racked pointed out that their styles are now up to 50% off online, *and* you get free shipping in the US – a very exciting thing indeed, since they’re based in the UK.  in particular, the luna dress and, though it’s a little out of character, the devanna skirt, are both high on my list, as is the suesha cardigan, though i’m more than a little scared i couldn’t actually figure out how to wear it.

other sales and steals of note include:

  • le train bleu:  25% off sitewide this weekend with code onefourth
  • basic boutique:  40% off sitewide (excluding final sale items) through monday with code CELEBRATE40
  • blue bee:  a big ol’ sale section up to 70% off for the next few days, priced as marked.
  • shopbop:  a whole new batch of markdowns hit the site in celebration of the 4th, and there are some goodies to be had!

if other deals cross my path, i’ll most likely be too lazy to update this page.  so, i’ll throw them up on my twitter feed – in case you needed more incentive to follow me.

more sale goodness!

i feel like i’m neglecting the fashion coverage in favor of all of these sale posts lately.  but really, what kind of friend would i be if i didn’t share all of this lovely knowledge?

  • one of my favorite stationery and gifts stores, iomoi, is offering a rare 20% sitewide discount on orders over $150 through 11/21.  use code STOCKUP.
  • basic boutique has a lovely 35% discount sitewide, also through 11/21.  use code KICKOFF to save on loeffler randall, treesje, rebecca minkoff, and much much more.
  • revolve clothing just released a 30% discount code that’s only good through 11/19.  use code GIVEGOODGIFT to save on everything sitewide – it’s a great opportunity to stock up on some autumn cashmere, or treat yourself to a lovely new holiday frock.
  • emporio armani has a festive 40% discount sitewide with code EXCLUSIVE.  oh, and free shipping too!
  • last but not least, if you aren’t a frequenter of decor8, i highly, highly suggest checking in throughout this month – she has scored some amazing discounts from several very chic home decor & accessories shops (usually 20-25%), many of whom never ever hand out discounts.  head over and see what she has going on – you’ll get some amazing deals, and some pretty fab gift ideas while you’re there.

deal of the day: 20% off at basic boutique

just a little reminder that you can still snag 20% off all regular and sale items at basic boutique through this weekend with code CardioTop5.  after much (much) deliberation, i’ve narrowed it down to a few of my favorite picks above. 

i’m borderline obsessed with treesje’s line of bags lately – they have all the style and luxe detail of bags twice as expensive, and are completely under the radar.  castle starr’s petal silk blouse is amazingly perfect for those sculptural trends that are so hot this fall, yet it’s marked down 70% to $108, plus an additional 20% off makes it…well, practically free.  and, to fully appreciate this gorgeous cropped blazer by mint, you have to click to check out the rear view close-up…it’s an amazing piece you’ll turn to for years to come.

(digression…wow, after looking at the above picks, can you tell i’m into pleats this fall?)

grab all of your favorites for fall while the getting’s good…the discount’s only good until sunday night!

buyer’s buys: basic boutique (and an exclusive discount!)

wow, that is some serious title alliteration…but i digress.  we’re test-driving a new feature here at SMC, in which we ask buyers at our favorite shops to tell us what they’re lusting after this season.  i love getting a new perspective from time to time, and there’s no better source than the people that get to see absolutely everything out there, and are then forced to narrow their picks to a very select few.

today’s “buyer’s buys” is with the lovely andrea denes of basic boutique.  basic is one of my favorite stops to check out established favorites like madison marcus and loeffler randall, as well as new faces like lorick and castle starr.  the online-only boutique has recently gotten loads of fab press, but i love being able to say i knew them when!  anyway, without further adieu, these are a few of andrea’s fave picks for fall:

Ulla Johnson Edith Blouse – This blouse is absolutely gorgeous and super lightweight so you can start wearing it now! The print is unique yet subtle, and will be the perfect compliment under a cardigan or vest this fall!

Velvet Sarill – Using a Rachel Zoeism…”I’d die”. Yep, that basically sums up this little number by Velvet. The fit, color, and need I mention price are all just dead on!

Vena Cava Casio Tank – Vena Cava is known for their unique prints, and this one doesn’t miss the mark. The cut of this tank is flirty and feminine, but the zipper front gives it just the right amount of edge. Perfect for layering under fall jackets.

Dorothy Lee Cardigan – Well, we obviously know sweaters and fall go hand in hand, but this one is actually making me look forward to cold weather! I plan to make this sweater my fall uniform, along with my skinny jeans and brown high boots.

Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Bag Mini – We’re no strangers to this staple bag by Rebecca Minkoff, but I’m obsessing over the neutral hued color of this season’s MAB mini!  The perfect compliment to those fall jackets and sweaters!

Loeffler Randall Ruffle Collar Jacket – If you’re looking for a statement piece to invest in this season, then you’ve found it.  This gorgeous jacket by Loeffler Randall can be dressed up OR down, the color goes with everything, and it looks amazing on.  Can we say “necessary!”?!

no big shock that we’re in love with every one of andrea’s picks.  if you are too, she’d like to help you score some of these fab digs. just use code CardioTop5 to save 20% sitewide (that includes sale items, folks!).  work those credit cards now…the code expires sunday.  and of course, let us know what you end up bringing home!
