Noir Jewelry - When Pigs Fly Ring (Pink) - Jewelry Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

After last weekend’s flamingo clutch, reader J passed along this hilarious ring, noting “this happy-go-lucky ring will definitely be added to my weekend wardrobe in the near future.” I like it, although I worry that those wings will be snag-o-rific when it comes to pretty much anything. The ring is $150 at Zappos. Noir Jewelry – When Pigs Fly Ring (Pink) – Jewelry Bony Levy Black Diamond Ring (Nordstrom Exclusive)For my own $.02, I was drooling (drooling!) over this black diamond cocktail ring form the Nordstrom Anniversary sale — $1445 marked down to $998. I do love a sale… Bony Levy Black Diamond Ring (Nordstrom Exclusive)icon

Kate Spade New York - Jocelyn (Cream) - Bags and LuggageSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Zappos currently has a number of Kate Spade items marked down 25-30%, and for the weekend, I’m loving this comical clutch that I’ve been ogling for a while. Love the pink flamingo detail, and I think the bright white and pink would be a lot more versatile than you might expect. It’s also nice that the bag expands to something a lot bigger — it strikes me as the perfect way to switch into flip flops and stash your heels as the night wears on. It was $325, now marked to $243.75. Kate Spade New York – Jocelyn (Cream) – Bags and Luggage

As noted earlier, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is on! For he weekend, I like this relaxed split neck top in a black and white floral — it’s classic, comfy, and looks super chic. After the sale ends on August 1 it’ll be $88, but for the moment it’s $59.90. Bellatrix Split Neck Woven Top

There is TONS of stuff for the Anniversary sale, though, so I thought I’d do a quick roundup of my favorites.  Click on the picture for the pricing info — in general, though, the pics below go in order of price.

Stuart Weitzman - Vigorous (Black Nappa) - FootwearSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Zappos seems to have a ton of Stuart Weitzman shoes on sale today, some for truly great discounts. Take these boots, for example — I was hesitant about the “over the knee” trend at first, but I’ve finally come around to the opinion that the look really can be cute, particularly with leggings and a fabulous, big sweater. These boots were originally $595 — now marked to $285, and lots of sizes left in both the black and the brown. Nice! Stuart Weitzman – Vigorous (Black Nappa) – Footwear

Max Studio ELASTIC WAIST TRIM DRESS-M-BLACKSomething on your mind? Chat about it here. Happy Fourth of July to all of our American readers, and Happy Canadian Day to all of our Canadian readers!

Max Studio has some amazing sales going on, and I’m loving this textured black dress. Love the empire waist, the straight skirt, and the flattering, sloped V (as well as the fact that it’s very easy to wear a bra with it). It was $138, now marked to $28 on sale (sizes XS-L still available, amazingly). ELASTIC WAIST TRIM DRESS

The Limited has started its “Red Hot” sale, with markdowns up to 70% off — and free shipping with $100 purchase. For a casual weekend look, I like this Petals Peasant Tee in “glam green” — I’d wear it with jeans, with shorts, and maybe even to the office with a pencil skirt. It was $39.90, now marked to $16.99 at The Limited. Petals Peasant Tee
