Catherine Catherine Malandrino Fallon Sheath DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

When I was getting married, I wanted to start a blog that only featured white clothing, because for once I wanted everything to be white (ok, fine, or cream or sand or so forth) for wear to the rehearsal dinner, on the honeymoon, during the wedding weekend, etc, etc. I’ve never quite gotten around to starting that blog, but I think this dress is a gorgeous rehearsal dinner dress, or even a low-key City Hall wedding kind of dress. If you are UNLIKE me and will wear a white dress even if it’s not wedding-related — kudos to you! — then this is also a gorgeous dress. It was $158, but is now marked to $76 at Last Call (where they have a ton of cute Catherine Catherine Malandrino stuff on deep discount). Catherine Catherine Malandrino Fallon Sheath Dress

J.Crew Linen Cubist print teeSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

J.Crew has some decent sales going on this weekend — take an extra 30% off sale items, an extra 50% off final sale items, and they have a ton of “weekend-ready basics” marked 25% off. For the weekend, I like this linen Cubist print (and I even liked it even before I knew that it came in a blue version!). It was $49, then marked to $29; with code SHOPNOW it comes down to $21. Nice.

Elizabeth and James Denver Draped TeeSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Nordstrom just started its spring sale, and there are tons of cute things — the lingerie in particular was jumping out to me today. For a more “suitable for work” picture (even if it is a recommendation for what to wear on the weekend!) I really liked this draped tee from Elizabeth and James. Being a New Yorker I of course like it as styled — all black, and I can kind of even get behind the Bermuda shorts — but I also think it would look great with all manner of pants. The shirt was $135, but is now marked to $95. Elizabeth and James Denver Draped Tee

Coach Bleecker ClutchSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy weekend! I’m liking the look of this perforated silver & tan clutch — it seems like a great neutral for the spring and summer (and I lurve that wrist strap!). It’s $218 at Zappos. COACH Bleecker Striped Perforated Leather Large Clutch

Helmut Lang Asymmetric Leather-trimmed jacquard jacketSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Everybody’s talking about the amazing sale at The Outnet, with clearance prices marked up to 85% off. I decided to poke around and fell in love with this gorgeous leather/jacquard jacket from Helmut Lang, which looks like a great edgy indoor/outdoor/eveningish blazer as the weather gets warmer. Lucky sizes 0 and 2 only, but the deal is pretty good: was $1,085, now $217.  (Lots of DvF over 50% off now, too.)  Helmut Lang Asymmetric Leather-trimmed jacquard jacket

Limited Lace Front Layering TeeSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

For this week’s weekend recommendation, I thought I’d feature this lovely lace-front tee from the Limited (which is having their semi-annual sale now — lots of great prices, particularly on suiting). Like I’ve said before, I don’t like lace for work — but for the weekend, now that’s another story entirely. Wear it with jeans for a slightly dressed up vibe; wear it with a skirt for a more dressed-up look. The price was $45, but it’s now marked to $22.47 and available in tan, off-white, black, and red. (This top is also similar and has more of a vintage vibe.) Limited Lace Front Layering Tee
