Wedges are big for the summer (aren’t they always, though?) and I like the curved, slenderish heel on this one. It’s available in black, silver, and gold; I love the gold the most. The shoes are $59.99 at Amazon. Aerosoles Women’s Bronze Age Wedge Sandal
Lately I’m loving the aggressively casual t-shirts at Anthropologie, such as this notched-necked, loose tee with an uneven, almost ragged hem. Nice. It’s new to the sale section, too — it was $68 but is now marked to $40, it’s available in eight colors and sizes XS-XL. Notched V-Neck Tee
6pm’s dress sale includes a lot of really cute pieces, both for work and play (including this great hot pink Karen Kane faux-wrap dress for $35, and this previously-recommended Michael Michael Kors navy sheath for $29). For the weekend, though, I’m liking this casual Olympia dress, from Riller & Fount — the shoulder ruching, the braided waist, the simple jersey — like it all. I’d wear it to brunch with flats and a hat, and dress it up at night with some serious eye emakeup, heels, and a few sparkly bangles on the bare arm. It’s marked to $29.99 (down from $165).

As warmer weather slowly arrives, I’ve kind of been in a maxi dress mood. I’m loving some of the striped ones I’m seeing, like this fun one by Puella (available in grey, navy, and mint, in regular and petites) — colors, the stripes, the different pattern, the uneven hem… very cool. It’s $88 at Anthropologie.com. Market Day Striped Maxi
I like these fun scribble flats for the weekend — the pink, the scribble, the soft rubber. Nice. They’re $80 at Shopbop. Melissa + Campana Scribble Flats

I’ve seen these glittery Cole Haan pumps on sale at a few places, and must say I’m kind of tempted — a low heel, a classic pump, plus glitter = the perfect thing to wear out for dressier events, whether it’s date night, a wedding, or even a gala. They were $178, but are now marked to $129.98; with code FRIENDS they come down to under $100. (They’re also on sale at Dillards, Neiman Marcus, and Amazon for $76-$129.)

More selections from the Lord & Taylor Friends and Family sale below — and I’ve also found a few more amazing sales from Brooks Brothers, Kate Spade, and Sephora also. (It’s been a productive morning.) (For all of the below picks, you can hover over the picture for the name/sale info). [Read more...]
