Suit of the Week: Jones New York

JNY Suiting SaleFor busy working women, the suit is often the easiest outfit to throw on in the morning. In general, this feature is not about interview suits for women, which should be as classic and basic as you get — instead, this feature is about the slightly different suit that is fashionable, yet professional.

Jones New York is having a pretty great suiting sale right now: create your own two piece suit for $99. There are a ton of nice blazers marked down to $59 (lots of my previous picks still available).  For today’s suit of the week I’m liking this birdseye pattern — it’s slightly different than a black or a gray suit, but just as wearable.  The blazer (Emma Birdseye Seasonless Stretch Blazer) was $139, but is now $59; the skirt (Lucy Slim Skirt in Birdseye Seasonless Stretch) was $79, but is now marked to $39, and the pants (Sydney Birdseye Seasonless Stretch Slim-Leg Pants) were $99, but are now $99.  All pieces come in sizes 2-16, as well as plus sizes; there seem to be a few other pieces in birdseye in lucky sizes.

Psst: along the lines of other big sales, there are a few hours left in Talbots’ big cashmere sale — all cashmere sweaters are $54.99 with code TREAT24. This includes reader favorite, the Audrey sweater.  Sizing for regular, plus, petites, and plus-size petites. Also, the Loft sale has hit 75% off, bringing prices down to $15-$20 (including their popular waterfall cardigan).

Deal Alert: Last Call at Neiman Marcus

last-call-sale-cashmere-dressI normally don’t click on the various “dashes” that Last Call runs, where there are additional markdowns on selected stuff for a limited time, but the current one looks pretty great for workwear: take an additional 50% off already reduced prices on brands like Lafayette 148 New York, Catherine Malandrino, Tahari, Nanette Lepore, M Missoni, Valentino, and more. Lots of great stuff in there even in the “under $50″ range.  The sale runs through 1/15.  Pictured at top: Todd and Duncan Cashmere Colorblock Dolman Dress — available in several colors and select sizes. Was $595, then marked to $339; with the extra 50% off it comes to $169.  A few more picks (below):

Deal Alert – C.Wonder Closing Sale

cwonder closing saleI never really got into C.Wonder, but a lot of people seem to be sad that the store is closing. If you happen to work near one of their 11 retail locations, get thee to a store — but for online shoppers there are still some great deals to be had. The website is currently 50% off — I would guess that’s just going to get steeper and steeper in the next few days and weeks. All sales are final, alas, but some good buys, pictured:

Deal Alert: New/Steep Markdowns on Designer Shoes at Neiman Marcus

Manolo Tryx Snake T-Strap PumpNeiman Marcus seems to be having a big sale on designer shoes — they have 58 pairs of Manolo Blahniks newly added to their sale section just this week. There are SO MANY Manolos and Jimmy Choos, as well as tons of Cole Haans (some as low as $58), Delman, Tory Burch, Pour la Victoire and more. Great selection, good prices. For example, this T-strap pump (4″ heel, patent leather and snakeskin) was $955, but is now marked to $573. It’s only available in lucky sizes, of course, but it isn’t just the girls with size 4 and size 11 feet having all the fun — they still have sizes 6, 7.5, and 8.5 left. Happy shopping, ladies! Manolo Blahnik Tryx Snake T-Strap Pump

A few other choice picks:  here, here, here, here, here… lovely.
