James & Erin is one of the new Amazon Prime brands and it’s got a kind of cool girl vibe that can work with a lot of different women’s styles. This embellished shell is on a crazy sale ($15!), comes in purple and black, is handwashable, and could work with anything from skinny jeans to cargo pants to even a high-waisted look (so the bottom part of the design is tucked in and the top is a bit blousy). Like I said, it’s $15 at Amazon, available in sizes XS-XL. James & Erin Women’s Embellished High/Low Sleeveless V-Neck Top

PS. Many apologies for no morning thread — we’ll throw the weekend thread up a bit early for you, and I’ll also go back and post the one we were going to post this morning because it was a good deal. Siiiiiiiigh.

Two major sales are winding down this weekend, ladies: The Zappos clearance sale ends tomorrow, and over at Nordstrom, Anniversary Sale prices are going to go back up on August 6. Have you guys gotten any great deals? I could probably stand to get a new pair of walking/running shoes, and the Zappos sale has TONS of great options. These Brooks shoes are bestsellers; I like the purple, teal, and black color scheme. They were $120 but are now marked to $89, and they come in sizes 5–12. Brooks Ghost 9

This style of denim (these are from Paige) is one of the highest rated, most loved styles in general — and it’s great to see that it’s in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so that you can save big. (Here’s our post on the most-loved denim at Nordstrom, with updated links to other jeans included in the NAS.) The cropped, skinny gray jean is a great look for fall, and this pair is $131 but will be $199 after the sale ends — the remaining sizes are 24–32 (00–12). Verdugo Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans

Two plus-size options are here (they’re part of the sale too) and here.

Psst: Here are our picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — and make sure to check out the crazy discounts in Reiss’ sale as well!

Kate Spade has little colorful stud earrings that have been hugely popular for a long time now, and since I hate studs I’ve never pulled the trigger. I love that now they’ve got little drop earrings made with the same colorful crystals — I think they’re fun and a little festive. I kind of like the blackish “jet” (pictured) or the blueish “sapphire,” and there’s a lovely “berry” and “emerald” — but they also have a simple clear crystal with either gold, silver, or rose gold. These are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; they’re $31 and will go up to $48 after the sale. If you’re not a big fan of these, Nordstrom has these very similar drop earrings that are NOT part of the NAS but on sale anyway! Bright Idea Drop Earrings

Psst: Note that the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now OPEN to the regular public — you no longer need a rewards card to get access!

This sandal has been getting a ton of good reviews over at Nordstrom, and it comes in six colors, which is always a good sign. In general, Michael Kors is a well-liked brand around here — their MK Flex pump is always ranked highly with the readers — and in general this looks like a great, classic sandal. It’s got sort of a vintage vibe, but it also feels very modern. We’re featuring it in red, which I like, but it’s also got a bunch of neutral colors, including oyster, dark khaki, mink, black suede, and navy suede. It’s $98, which is very affordable, and it comes in sizes 5–11. Becky Slingback Sandal

You know, a few years ago when I got my Pucci sunglasses, I said to myself, that’s IT, I will never need another pair of sunglasses because I love this pair so very, very much. And I still love them — but they haven’t quite been the category killer I thought they would be, because I’m still buying sunglasses.  In general I’m not one of those people who spends $100s on sunglasses, although many people certainly do. Instead, I’ve been eyeing the brand Quay for affordable, fun, on-trend sunglasses — everything just seems really cool. I’m currently crushing on these  round sunglasses with cutout metal frames; they are, as Tim Gunn would say, “a lot of look,” but if the rest of your wardrobe tends to be pretty low key, sunglasses are a great place to make an impact. These are $60 at Nordstrom; ShopBop and Amazon also carries the brand. (If even that is too rich for your blood, I got these slightly wacky $10 sunglasses at Amazon a while ago on a total whim and keep getting compliments!) Pictured: Fleur 49mm Round Sunglasses
