I often remember a weekend suggestion from a few years ago — a terrycloth moto jacket from Gap — that shocked the heck out of me when it sold out within hours of being posted. (I don’t think it was the traffic from the Corporette link much/at all, but I still remember being surprised when it sold out so quickly.) So for this weekend I thought I’d post another terrycloth moto jacket, this time from Anthropologie — easy care, chic, available in white and green in both regular and petite, and only $88. Score.

Last Call has a ton of great “just in” selections, including lots of Beirn and Foley & Corinna bags, as well as the usual broad selection of weekend items like tees and dresses from Splendid and James Perse. For this weekend, I’m liking this artsy but wearable slub knit tee, which I think would be lovely with leggings or skinny jeans. It was $120, but both the gray and the white are marked to $41.30 this weekend as part of Last Call’s big MLK day sale. Wilt Slub Knit Long Sleeve Top, Platinum
Psst: Happy MLK Day! If there are good sales we’ll do a round-up on Monday; otherwise we’ll see you Tuesday!
I usually am more of a “clutch” girl when I’m going out on the weekends (that is, when I can be bothered to change my bag at all), but this cute crossbody from Kooba has me rethinking that. I love the metallic green-gold (it reminds me of one of my favorite Minkoff clutches), and think it would look cute with anything from jeans to a little black dress. Bluefly has it on a pretty good sale, too: it was was $228, but marked down to $77.99 today. Kooba Layla bag
Whew, that was a long week, eh? For this weekend open thread I’m liking this silk top from Joie. It could be acceptable for some offices, too, but really this is exactly how I want to look on the weekends — polished but casual, comfortable, maybe with a touch of sexy. I even like the coral color (and trust me, that’s saying something). It’s $208 at Bloomingdale’s. Joie Top – Amone Silk
6pm.com is offering up to 70% off “holiday party finds” today, and there are some great pieces (including a lot of Bruno Magli shoes that would work for work as well, some of which I’ve recommended before). I like this versatile sequin skirt, which works in a variety of party situations: wear it with a black twinset to the “I’m not sure if we’re supposed to dress up” party, or a tighter/more revealing tank for a night out with your significant other; you could even add a pop of a totally different color (purple? red? green? all sound good to me). Because it’s a combo of black, navy, and white, it doesn’t even have to be limited to a Christmas party — this is the kind of thing where, with proper care, it could last you several years and be worn to numerous parties. It was $348, but today comes down to $87. Nice! BCBGMAXAZRIA Elodie Lace & Sequin Wave Skirt
P.S. Happy holidays, ladies! I hope everyone has a long, healthy, safe vacation from work coming up! We do have a few posts slated for the next week or so (probably a sales roundup, as well as some of my favorite picks from various TPS reports, Coffee Breaks and the like), but for the most part regular posting will resume after the New Year.
Behold: the perfect long necklace to jazz up simple tops (such as this morning’s dress, or turtlenecks, or pretty much anything). I have a similar one like this and, although I’m more of a silver/platinum gal, it’s one of the few pieces of gold-colored jewelry I wear. This one is a great price, to: it was $38, then marked to $25, but it comes down to $16.25 with this weekend’s sale (even lower if you’re buying more than $300, when you get 40% off).
