Coffee Break: Studded Pumps

Maiyet Studded PumpsThere are some serious sales at the Barneys’ Warehouse sale online — they are now offering an EXTRA 70% off all clearance.  These are final sale prices, alas, but there are some crazy deals to be had, particularly among the shoes.  (Ladies who wear size XS in clothes, you’re going to make out like bandits.)  I like these Maiyet studded 4″ pumps, which push the boundaries a bit for work but, I think, would still work on a casual day.  They were $995, but then marked to $359 — so with the additional 70% off they come down to $107.70.  Nice. (Also fun: this skirt.) Maiyet Studded Pumps

P.S.  Kate Spade Saturday is apparently shutting down — this doesn’t seem to be reflected in sale prices on the website yet, but you may want to start perusing the selection of the reader recommended A satchels.


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):
