Deal Alert: The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

nordstrom-workwear-half-yearly-sale-2015Happy almost-Memorial Day, you guys: Nordstrom’s Half Yearly sale has started. There are a ton of great workwear pieces in there, including brands like:

Some particular pieces that caught my eye…

nordstrom sale workwear 1

nordstrom sale workwear 2

nordstrom sale workwear 3


  • Veronica Beard Print A-Line Skirt – I’m still drooling over the dress from Monday, so I was intrigued to see a bunch of Veronica Beard pieces in the sale. This is my favorite — a black and white midi skirt. It was $450, but is now on sale for $270 (limited sizes, alas).
  • L’AGENCE Contrast Panel Pleated Crepe Dress – This crepe dress looks lovely, and — to me at least — walks that delicate line between feminine and floaty, and professional. It was $525, but is now marked to $315.
  • Max Mara ‘Ottavo’ Jersey Sheath Dress – Max Mara continues to blow me away with their simple, classic sheath dresses. This gorgeous one, with an almost stripey print, is marked 40% off — was $765, now $458.
  • Armani Collezioni Fitted Piqué Jersey Jacket – This fitted pique jersey looks perfect for summer — classic, wear it with everything. It was $1,345, but is now marked to $575.


I’ll round up bags and shoes later (probably tomorrow) — but I will quickly note that there are a lot of Stuart Weitzman and SJP heels in the sale. Which favorites will you be looking for, ladies?

Deal Alert: Take 60% Off Sale at Ann Taylor

Ann Taylor's HUGE Sale | CorporetteAnn Taylor has a lot of sales; personally the one that I wait for is the one where you can “take 60% off sale.” It’s a great time to stock up on classics like their tropical wool and triacetate suiting, as well as their popular shoe collection; here are a few other picks from the sale, below.  N.B.: Some pieces are final sale, but not all. Ladies, what are your latest favorites at Ann Taylor? 



Deal Alert – Jones New York

JNY big saleThere are some crazy sales right now at Jones New York — all of the sale prices are an extra 50% off, meaning there are a ton of dresses to be had for around $20, blazers below $50, and even some winter coats below $75. Things aren’t looking good for JNY, so if you like the brand, stock up now. They have a ton of options in regular, petite, and plus sizes; lots of my favorite are still left from our sponsored roundup last October. As near as I can tell these are NOT final sales; shipping is a flat $7 but free if your purchase is more than $125.  Below are a few of my favorite things in today’s sale… (note that the real action is with the dresses, but tons of nice blazers as well)…

Pictured at left: Blue Leopard Wrap Dress, also available in plus sizes — was $119, now $19.50. Faux wrap, machine washable.  Below:

Deal Alert: ShopBop’s Big Event Sale

shopbop big event 2015I believe ShopBop has this huge tiered sale twice a year — it’s a big deal because it includes so many things that don’t often go on sale. So here are the details: use code BIGEVENT15 to get 15% off orders of $250+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off orders of $1K+.  The only brand that is excluded is Stuart Weitzman, at least as far as I can tell, so you can really clean up on some great accessories brands, including Ferragamo, LK Bennett, Rebecca MinkoffTory Burch, Kate Spade, Hunter, MZ Wallace, vintage Vuitton, and Michael Michael Kors’ Jet Set collection. (I particularly love their jewelry collection — it’s always hip and interesting.) Note that because ShopBop is owned by Amazon, Prime shipping is available (they have a general 3-day free shipping policy though); returns are free.  The sale ends March 7.

Some of my favorite pieces for work and the weekend are below; a few general brands to look for include Diane von Furstenberg, Black Halo, Equipment, and Smythe.  For the weekend, great selection of denim from Rag and BoneFrame, and Current/Elliott.

Ladies, what are your favorites? Any classics you’ll be grabbing at the sale, or are you drawn to the trendier things at ShopBop?
