We’re still on an abbreviated posting schedule (don’t forget the holiday open thread!), but here are some of our top posts from 2009… after the jump!
We just returned from a hard day out shopping and movie-watching to find this tantalizing offer from ShopBop, and we’ve already filled our cart (seriously, we’re getting about $500 worth of stuff). Lots of good stuff, including this lovely dress (Shoshanna Combo Sheath Dress) from Shoshanna — was $340, marked to $170, price comes to $136 in your cart. Not bad. Not bad at all. (And, for those of you who’ve been waiting, you will be thrilled to know that those Alexander McQueen stretch leather shorts are also on sale.) (We’re joking, but if you can pull them off, more power to you.) 2 DAYS ONLY! EXTRA 20% Off Items Marked 50% AND 70% Off at Shopbop with code EXTRA20. Ends 12/29 @ 11:59pm PST.
Both companies (owned by the same parent) are having some great sales. Anne Klein is up to 60% off, while Jones New York is taking up to 75% off all sale items. Pictured: Items on sale at JNY include this lovely sweater (Notch Collar Sweater Jacket), was $109, now $64, with another 30% off at checkout taking it down to $45.49. Oh, and a nice bonus — free shipping on all orders (at both stores) for a limited time.
Don’t forget about the holiday open thread, here…
As you may have guessed from our “Bargain Tuesday” post today, we’re taking off for the holidays (and hope you are as well). We will be back to post about any good sales we hear — but until then, enjoy the holiday thread and whatever holiday plans you have.
We thought the “non-office clothes” recommendation went over well with last weekend’s open thread, so we’re going to continue it — these shoes aren’t quite casual, but are great for holiday parties. We like the ruffle on top, and the lack of sequins — nothing to snag a long skirt or dress, or a fancy-ish pair of trousers. We’d wear them with bare legs (and a driver and/or pair of snow boots standing by) but we think they could also work with the right pair of tights. Best of all, they’re part of the many shoes that Piperlime has on sale at the moment (lots are 40% off, even though these are not) — these were $89, now $69, available in sizes 5.5-10 in black and gold.
