Sponsored Post: Shop Jones New York’s Friends and Family Sale!

JNY sale 2014Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Jones New York, but written by your usual friendly blogger, Kat Griffin.

The Jones New York Friends and Family sale has just started, and there are a ton of lovely pieces.  In addition to the houndstooth suiting and cardigan sweater I was drooling over a few weeks ago (or their washable suiting line that I called out on Washable Wednesday a few weeks ago on CorporetteMoms), there is a ton of great stuff on the site — and it’s 30% off sitewide.  If you’ve never tried the brand, you’re missing out — I’ve thought of them for years as a stalwart for classic yet feminine workwear that is flattering, wears well, and launders easily.  I also like that many of the pieces come in regular, petite, and plus sizes.  Some of my favorites currently part of the sale are below — please note that all prices are an extra 30% off from the prices I’ve listed here.  :)

I love the look of a lot of their suiting, including:

Deal Alert: ShopBop’s Friends & Family Sale

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?
