this just in: $75 off $300 at saks

alice + olivia pia skirt this just in: $75 off $300 at saks

The science of sale verbiage continues to amuse and befuddle me, but nonetheless: take $75 off a $300 purchase at Saks through 2.26 with code GIFT96 (which amounts to 25% off, for the lawyers/mathematically-challenged among us). This may just be the push I needed to pick up this quite stunning Alice + Olivia skirt, which would be just the thing for a certain bon vacances I have in store…

Anything you’ve had your eye on that looks more tempting with $75 off?

friends & family: shopbop and saks

Friends, I know. It’s temptation central around here this week. But Shopbop Friends & Family and Saks Friends & Family? You’d never have forgiven me if I didn’t tell you about it. Both are offering 25% off SITEWIDE (with the usual exclusions), and my guess is you either (a) hadn’t heard but really needed to know, or (b) had heard, and have frantically been clicking back and forth between the two sites, figuring out what to buy and where to buy it. Or is that just me?

What to do? Buy the piece that won’t go on sale in 3 weeks. That Vince cardigan you’ve been eyeing. The Rachel Comey boots you’ve wanted since last fall. Denim. You get the idea. Oh, and buy things that are already on sale…an extra 25% off is always a good incentive. Need a few suggestions? Read on

summer sale season! (and my picks)

barneys sale picks, via shopping's my cardio

All of those Memorial Day deals in your inbox felt crazy, I know. Too good to resist. But if you did, if you were patient, your virtue is about to be rewarded. Shopbop, Barneys, Saks and Net-A-Porter all launched their summer sales today, and there are goodies aplenty. Read on

sale spy: deals you should know about


Friends & Family at Saks!
 A whopping 25% off (20% off jewelry) through 4.28.13 with code FRNFAM2. This is the time to splurge on that Burberry trench, friends. Or maybe those Rag & Bone boots you’ve been eyeing for a year and a half. Shop fast, the good stuff will go early.

Piperlime: 20% off most sandals (and a few other goodies) with code PEDI. Last day on this one, but they have some fun styles from Sol Sana, Joie and those Sam Edelman booties you see absolutely everywhere. (Seriously digging the sprayed-white sole on these ones.)

J.Crew: In what is fast becoming totally predictable news, J.Crew has 25% off sitewide again through 4.28.13 with code SPRINGBEST. Cardmembers can make it 30% off with code CARDSTYLE. Their sweaters aren’t what they used to be, and their pants only fit 5% of the time. But this may be a good excuse for a new classic button-down and some denim shorts.

friends & family bonanza!

It’s a good day, my friends! Welcome to the first day of Friends & Family at both Saks Fifth Ave. and Shopbop! Yep, you heard me. 20% off sitewide, with the obvious nagging designer exclusions.

Friends and family is wonderful, but remember, it’s the precursor to the fall sales, when things will start at 25-30% off. So, like everything else in life, it’s a gamble. Take the sure thing now? Or wait until next week, when prices start to drop? It’s a judgment call, but generally, I suggest using Friends & Family to splurge on pieces that are classic, and therefore won’t go on sale – like, say, a Burberry trench. It’s also a great time for denim, as those markdowns won’t happen until much later in the season (if at all). And pieces you’ll wear to death now, like boots.

Want some examples?

At Saks, use code FRNFAM2 through 10/21 (and combine it with code OCTBSFA for free shipping on $150+):

saks friends & family bonanza!

Twisted seam sweater, Vince, $176 from $220; Newbury ankle boots, Rag & Bone, $396 from $495; Grey flannel Marrakesh, MiH $169 from $211 (more on these amazing pants later)

At Shopbop, you’ll use code WEAREFAMILY, but it’s only good through tomorrow (10/17):

 shopbop friends & family bonanza!

Colorblock pullover, Elizabeth & James, $292 from $365; Richley lace dress, DVF, $292 from $365; Ingrid lurex sweater, Velvet, $92 from $114

But what I really want to know is…what are you buying??

friday finds: fall friends & family fun!

Wow, that was a seriously alliterative title. I’m skipping the usual Friday Finds extravaganza this week, because there are so many fantastic sales going on around the web this weekend, I thought you might rather hear about those. I know you all love a good bargain just as much as I do!

First up, nab this cute little Joie crossbody bag free with any $250 purchase at Saks – just use code WCONTEMP2 (you’ll also get free shipping on $200+ with code SFASHIP). Ordinarily, I’m not much for free gifts, as they never live up to the hype. But even though this one’s free (and faux suede), I actually love it, from the chain strap all the way down to the tassel detail on the closure.

Lots of Friends & Family love going on this weekend. Get 20% off all purchases with code FALLFRIENDS11 at Bloomingdale’s this weekend, plus free shipping (no code required)! It may be time to splurge on that DVF Mikhaila coat I’ve been eyeing all season…or maybe the Harrington vest. {It’s worth noting that Nordstrom will usually match this deal, especially if they carry the same item.}

And more Friends & Family excitement at Endless (thanks for the tip, M!) – again, take 20% off storewide (with the usual exceptions) through the weekend with code SEPEVENT. I’m thinking it’s an excellent excuse to get a little more Loeffler Randall in your life.

Remember when I told you about Matches Fashion a few weeks ago, but lamented their pricey US shipping? Well, today only, free worldwide shipping at Matches with code WWFREE. Some pieces are a little pricier than they would be stateside (damn conversion rates), but some are a steal…like this orange herringbone coat from Weekend MaxMara, which I’m pretty sure would be about $300 higher here.

fall sneak peek: theyskens’ theory

Saks announced this morning that they have the first batch of beauties from Olivier Theyskens’ debut collection for Theory…and, well, it’s awfully close to perfection.

Screen shot 2011 08 24 at 9.39.14 AM fall sneak peek: theyskens theoryScreen shot 2011 08 24 at 9.38.18 AM fall sneak peek: theyskens theory

I’ll start with the relaxed cream scoop neck sweater, the plaid blazer, the leather shift dress and that fantastic chunky cabled knit sweater, please. And maybe the fur coat. Oh, who am I kidding? One of each, please! (Okay, except maybe that cream ruffly drop-waist dress. Not that.)

utterly unenthused by the spring shoe selection

time for a little wednesday rant.  normally, i look forward to spring and summer not at all – i’m just a girl that likes to layer, and loves her scarves, and summer just does not allow for either of those.  and then, there’s the fact that i strongly dislike being above 70 degrees.

but even in the depths of my despair, i always know that even when spring fashion disappoints, i’ll have all of those lovely spring sandals to fall back on.  sadly, not this year.  this year, they’re just…yuck.  woven peep toe boots, *more* gladiators, prep school oxfords and clogs?!  (okay, the oxfords may not be all bad.)  normally, the unveiling of all of those warm weather shoes put a definite spring in my step, but this season’s “hot” shoes have left me pretty cold.

the source of this rant?  an email this morning from saks, telling me to check out all of their hot new contemporary shoes for spring.  to-wit:

Picture 3 utterly unenthused by the spring shoe selection

those were the first four shoes that came up.  are you depressed yet?  seriously, am i expected to wear these messes?

Picture 7 utterly unenthused by the spring shoe selectionPicture 6 utterly unenthused by the spring shoe selection

(okay, so maybe those elizabeth and james sandals on the right are actually kind of cute. but what exactly are those shoes on the left? they’re like keds…gone very, very wrong.)

personally, i’m rebelling…if this keeps up, i’ll spend the summer in my sperry topsiders (oh, and those luscious loeffler randalls i nabbed a few weeks back…), and not a single new shoe box will enter my closet until next fall.

what do you think of this season’s choices?   i’ll admit, there were a couple of styles mixed in that didn’t make me want to hurl (and don’t worry – i’ll be weeding them out for you)…but for now, i’m a little blue.
