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
Lands’ End has had these dresses for a while now — every season they come out in new colors and patterns (and in petites, plus, and tall sizes). I picked up a few myself on deep discount last year (I’m 5’4″ and preferred the length on the petite), and think they are great summer dresses. They’re a bit low cut for work — hello, camisole! — and the t-shirt fabric is definitely on the casual side, but in general I’m happy with my purchases. I’m really liking this “classic navy dots” print, here — they have a version in black dots as well that has lucky sizes only left in petite and plus sizes; solid colors are here. They range in price from $55-$69. Lands’ End Sleeveless Cotton Modal Pattern Fit and Flare Dress
I don’t know what made me think of it today, but I was remembering an oldish NYT article about how Silicon Valley entrepreneurs travel. (Answer: very lightly!) One of the few women interviewed for the story swore by a particular dress, calling it her “lifesaver” and noting that it was “pretty much smellproof and wrinkleproof,” and that you “can dress it up or down.” As it turns out, my spidey sense was tingling because 6pm has the dress on sale in three colors: “blue butterfly,” pink, and teal. (Zappos still has the dress full price in black.) The dress was $79, but is now $39-$59 at 6pm. Patagonia Bandha Dress
The Nordstrom shoe clearance sale is on, and it’s pretty fabulous. There’s a good selection from brands like Cole Haan, Stuart Weitzman, Frye, L.K. Bennett, Kate Spade New York, Børn, Anyi Lu, and more! (Some are lucky sizes only, so you should definitely filter by your size). For today’s holiday open thread, I’m liking these chic Lucca booties, from Sam Edelman — I’m not normally a fan of that much hardware, but something about it just seems awesome. It was $159.95, but is now marked to $107.16 (lots of sizes left in brown and black suede, ranging from size 5 to size 13. Sam Edelman Lucca Bootie
Psst: in other sale news, 6pm is running a $14 sale today — happy hunting, ladies!
Why is it that, just as bootcuts are coming back into style, I am drawn to tunic after tunic, which look best with leggings? I blame all the leather leggings — although I’ve never owned a pair I’ve always liked the look. ANYWAY: This cute voile tunic comes in both red and white, and seems great for a casual weekend outing. It was $95, but is now marked to $66.50. Happy Friday! Velvet Rosie Luxe Challis Tunic
This is not my usual style at all, but I really like this organza skirt (and, fine, the matching crop top if you must). I think it’s sexy, and a great way to show a bit more leg in a demure, fun way for an evening out. The skirt is $83.34 at ASOS. Warehouse Organza Skirt
