I have thus far bypassed the “super bright saturated color” lip trend of this summer, mostly because I’ve been too lazy to go to a Sephora and try stuff on, but the prices are so good at the Sephora sale that just started that I may just indulge online. This Urban Decay gloss stick is normally $20, but is $10 during the sale, and there are lots of great, super saturated colors to choose from. (The rest of the sale is pretty great also: I’m eyeing this CC concealer and this anti-aging sunscreen stick. Prices are up to 75% off, and the sale just started.
This is totally boring… but kind of perfect. I love the sleek look to this simple V-necked t-shirt from Halogen. I like the steep V, the tuck detailing at the neck and shoulder, and the fact that it’s slightly longer in the back. I’ve ordered the black, but this burgundy is gorgeous, as is the teal and the gray. It’s $35.90 (will be $48 after the sale). Halogen® Tucked V-Neck Long Sleeve Top

Hi guys – I saw some of the reader complaints re: audio ads late yesterday; my apologies to everyone for the audio interruption. The people who manage the ads on this site are all under strict instructions to never let audio ads in (and, my goodness, certainly not ads for things like KY jelly, whether audio or not). Sometimes ads slip past our filters (which makes me like the advertising companies even less, but that’s me). In order to stop these ads I need two pieces of information:
Commenters were recommending this flat the other day, and I really like the look of its clean, neat lines. Zappos has it in a ton of fun colors right now, but Amazon has some nice deals on basic colors like this “luggage” leather (also in black leather and black suede). It was $99, but is marked to $79 (select sizes and colors only, alas). Kors Michael Kors Fulton Moccasin
I know we’re having tech problems but I’m lacking information — is it mobile only? Can you identify which ad (or which ad spot)? Anyone who can send me screenshots and more information will win my undying affection. (I know of two potentially separate problems: Vindicosuite.com and a redirection to some app/game…. please fill me in if there are others.) Thank you all for your patience!
FYI – ShopBop’s Friends and Family sale has just started, with 25% off sitewide with code FAMILY25. ShopBop is home to a ton of great brands, and the editor’s picks are usually SPOT on in terms of what’s trendy, interesting, and now — their jewelry collection is also drool worthy. There are also a ton of great basics, though — so I’ve rounded up a few pieces that are classics that have been around forever (and probably will be). It’s also nice that they offer free 3-day shipping (although you can use your Amazon Prime membership for faster shipping), and, as always, free returns. Readers, what are you eyeing for the ShopBop sale? If you had $1K to spend, what would you buy?
