Coffee Break: Wallice Mule

Wallice muleSometimes, you see something marked down and wonder, what the heck happened? For example, here: there are a ton of really cute colors left in this mule, in a ton of sizes. (The metallic magenta is totally calling my name, but let’s go with the more subdued metallic blue to feature.) The product has high ratings for comfort and style. And yet it’s 40% off. So what happened? Here’s my guess: the product title says “Wallice Appliqué Mule,” and the product description goes on about the appliques. Huh? What appliques? It looks like there was an iteration with appliques on it (Amazon still has it, if you’re interested) and all of the other solid colors got forgotten by online shoppers worried about what crazy applique was going to come on the shoe. If you dare to try, it was $109, but is now marked to $65, in the Nordstrom Winter Sale. Wallice Mule

Here’s a pressing question for the readers: what’s your preferred sock/hosiery situation with mules? Barefoot… toe covers… or trouser socks?

Velveteen High Waist Skinny PantsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Hmmn: I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many pieces from cool girl brand Frame on sale before. The denim is what most people lurve, but they’ve also got blazers, sweaters, and more. I’m liking these velveteen skinny pants which look like a comfy but stylish choice for the weekend or a casual workday (know your office, though). They were $235, but are now marked to $140; lots of sizes are left as of right now. (I’ll try to do a fuller roundup of the big Nordstrom sale that just started, as well as all the Presidents’ Day sales starting now — please stay tuned!) Velveteen High Waist Skinny Pants

Frugal Friday’s Workwear Report: Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Ruffle Sleeve Shift DressPresident’s Day sales are already starting, including the big Nordstrom Winter Sale. This dress is new to the sale and while it’s obviously a casual dress, it’s a fun, easy dress that can cross seasons with the help of a little layering (such as tights and a thin, long-sleeved top) during colder months. At 5’4″, everything always hits me much longer than shown on super tall models — so I’d hope it hits me just above my knees. I’d still wear much lower heels than shown here (if not flats), and I’d pair it with a long pendant.  The dress is newly marked to $41 (also available in a fun stripe and a navy — even better for tights!) and has a ton of great reviews. Ruffle Sleeve Shift Dress

Hooray for the weekend! This strappy print dress jumped out at me recently and now I kind of can’t stop thinking about it. It looks great as styled here with strappy sandals, but they also have a picture of it styled with a moto jacket and booties — very cool/sexy, perfect for a date night. (I’m 90% sure there’s a light beige backing against the mesh.) It’s $149, available in sizes 2-14. Chelsea28 Strappy Print Dress

This looks like a nice plus-size version; note that if you’re plus size and into the strappy look Charlotte Russe has a ton of stuff (but it’s very short).
