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

I am always a fan of the little black dress, and this seriously marked down Susana Monaco dress looks perfect for most social outings. It was $246, but is now marked to $97 at Piperlime. Huzzah! Final sale only, alas. Susana Monaco V Drape Dress

So Piperlime is featuring designer Amanda Uprichard this week, and I am absolutely loving the bright, colorful dresses, full of feminine ruffles and the beautiful prints — I hope we see some more blouses from this designer for work. After some more research, I found this lovely dress on Bloomingdale’s for a better sale than I’ve seen elsewhere. Love the mixed print (floral and stripes!) as well as the ruffle and the see-through hem detail. Was $168, now $126 (sizes petite-L still available).

Lacoste and Catherine Malandrino are doing a collaboration this summer, and I love the look of this drape dress. It looks chic but breezy, perfect for summer parties. It’s already sold out in tornado blue, but it’s still available in brass yellow (pictured), black, white, and navy for $255 at Lacoste.com. Lacoste + Malandrino Drape Dress

Three cheers for long weekends! The Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale continues, with discounts of up to 50% on tons of basics like jeans, lingerie, swim suits — as well as work clothes. For a lazy weekend, I like this romantic blouse from Joie — the colors and ruffles seem soft and romantic. It was $198, now marked to $118.90 as part of the sale.
