I’m back on the hunt for some comfortable moto leggings that hold their shape, and was happy to see the Hue brand marked down to $35 — perfect for a trend piece that I’ve seen for as much as $1000 elsewhere. The blue is sold out, but the black is still available in all sizes online — hooray! Happy Friday, ladies. Hue ‘Moto’ Denim Leggings (Online Only)

Dillards is having one of their big clearance sales, with lots of good workwear brands on sale, including Antonio Melani (a sister brand to Tahari by ASL and T Tahari), Calvin Klein, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Ivy & Blu, Donna Morgan, Vince Camuto, and Catherine Catherine Malandrino. Tons of stuff under $50, including most of the dresses pictured below. Readers, what do you like to buy at Dillards? (Here’s a fun random question: I kind of consider Dillards a “local” department store because I’ve shopped at it in Ohio (and I think it’s in the South too?) but doubt most New Yorkers have heard of it. Meanwhile, some New Yorkers are familiar with Century 21, whereas most people in other parts of the country think of that as a realty company. Which are your favorite local/regional department stores?)
Back to the Dillards sale… it includes a few Hall of Famers are on sale, including:
- Ivy & Blu Ruched Faux Wrap Dress — was $98 now $35
- Karen Kane Faux-Wrap Dress with short sleeves, including one in a hieroglyphic print (was $108 now marked to $38) and one in a diamond print (was $128 now $46)
Pictured at top: I like this Tahari by ASL Bow Ponte Sheath Dress, available in pink and in black in sizes 2-16 — it was $128 now $46. A few other nice picks:
Happy Friday! I’m really liking this teal grid print shirt from The Limited (also available in blue, black, and red, and also available as a camisole or long-sleeved top in tall and petite sizes). The wide grid pattern strikes me as an interesting twist on a classic, and I think the teal is flattering. The t-shirt is $39.95 full price, available in sizes XS-XL. The Limited Drapey Grid Print Tee
Psst: Here’s a plus-size top with a striking pattern.

I posted this necklace’s sister last week on CorporetteMoms (because hey, every pregnant/nursing mama looks good in a statement necklace), and I meant it when I said it: I’m obsessed with this entire collection. I’m not even one of those people who thinks snakes are cool/sexy/whatever! Something about this lucite/ruthenium necklace — with accents of labradorite and crystal — just really speaks to me. Waaaant. This necklace is $375 at Saks. Alexis Bittar Snake Link Necklace
Psst: Here’s a lower-priced alternative, also at Saks.
