Coffee Break: Tie Stripe Scarf

Brooks Brothers Tie Stripe ScarfBrooks Brothers’ Friends & Family sale is on, and ends tonight! I always like the scarf and accessory selections there, so I’m drooling over these tie stripe oblong scarf — it seems fun in a “borrowed from the boys” kind of way. It was $98, then marked to $68, and it comes down to $51ish with code FF25. Brooks Brothers Tie Stripe Scarf

Deal Alert: Nordstrom’s Secret Sale (?!)

Nordstrom secret saleNordstrom is not usually one to have a secret sale, but not only is there no big announcement on the home page, I can’t even find a good link to send you guys to the entire collection of sale stuff. Yet, I noticed a ton of great workwear that has just hit 60% off (thank you, Shop it To Me newsletter), and thought I’d round up a few…

My best tip for the sale: if there’s a brand you love that I haven’t already mentioned, do a search on it, then filter by “Sale” — for some reason it doesn’t put the largest amount of sale stuff first (e.g., 33% stuff may be filtered before 60% stuff), but it does put all of the markdowns stuff ahead of the full-price stuff.

Readers, did you get anything at Nordstrom’s secret sale today? Any great pieces on sale not mentioned above?

Deal Alert: Dillards Sale

dillards sale 2014Dillards is having one of their big clearance sales, with lots of good workwear brands on sale, including Antonio Melani (a sister brand to Tahari by ASL and T Tahari), Calvin Klein, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Ivy & Blu, Donna Morgan, Vince Camuto, and Catherine Catherine Malandrino. Tons of stuff under $50, including most of the dresses pictured below. Readers, what do you like to buy at Dillards?  (Here’s a fun random question: I kind of consider Dillards a “local” department store because I’ve shopped at it in Ohio (and I think it’s in the South too?) but doubt most New Yorkers have heard of it. Meanwhile, some New Yorkers are familiar with Century 21, whereas most people in other parts of the country think of that as a realty company.  Which are your favorite local/regional department stores?

Back to the Dillards sale… it includes a few Hall of Famers are on sale, including:

  • Karen Kane Faux-Wrap Dress with short sleeves, including one in a hieroglyphic print (was $108 now marked to $38) and one in a diamond print (was $128 now $46)

Pictured at top: I like this Tahari by ASL Bow Ponte Sheath Dress, available in pink and in black in sizes 2-16 — it was $128 now $46. A few other nice picks:
