as usual, shopbop’s seasonal markdowns have me lunging wildly for my credit card. i didn’t find quite as much as i normally do, but there are still plenty of pieces i’m sure i can’t live without. plus, these would all stroll seamlessly into my fall wardrobe, which is really all i care about these days.
the dkny cozy ($137): i’ll admit, it baffles me a little. but there’s a whole iphone app dedicated to sharing the thousand ways there are to wear it, and i dig the camel shade for fall. i haven’t seen these marked down before, so if you’re already loving the look, this might be the time to jump.
geren ford paneled sweater ($125): i know, i know, i said no more stripes. but old habits die hard, and this is such a classic! i’d love to see this layered under a tweed blazer for fall.
james jeans humphrey high rise flare ($126): rises are on their way back up, and trouser jeans are finally, finally becoming a bit easier to find. pounce on this classic pair now, and your style problems for fall are solved.
joie martine blouse ($139): these floaty silk blouses will be everywhere this fall – add them to those trouser jeans above and throw on a cozy scarf in a contrasting pattern for a perfectly chic fall look. the pattern choices are virtually endless, but i love the soft, ethereal quality of the grey and cream here, and the pleated placket is just a bonus. this bolder version from patterson j kincaid was a close second, though, and half the price!
as for my buys, i can’t even believe i’m saying this, but i think i’m going to make a full-price splurge on this alexander wang tee. it’s utterly ridiculous, i know, but his knits are just unbearably soft, and they drape so well! i’m not even a white tee girl, and i know i’ll be wearing this one to death.
