Thanks to my friend Grechen, over at Grechen’s Closet, I was tipped off that designer mecca site Net-A-Porter had taken another 20% off their sale prices. Net-A-Porter definitely runs towards the true designer end of the scale, so even deeply discounted is going to cost you a few pennies.
But if you’re one of my readers who invests in this type of clothing, or waits for this type of sale to spend your money, there are deals to be had. I’ve tried to pick out only the most worthwhile to show you. FYI, all products are linked to via their pictures.
At just under half price (was $505), this Doma stitched leather jacket is still a steal. You’re looking at a red leather collarless jacket with stitched detailing around the neckline.
The jacket has long sleeves, two zipped pockets, a zip athrough the front and is fully lined. It’s available only in size Large, which is probably going to be around a U.S. 10. It’s like buttah, and it’s going to be gone in a heartbeat.
Tibi is quickly popping up on my brand radar for their beautiful blouses and dresses in feminine fabrics, colors and styles. This particular dress reminds me of Milly NYC, which has been a great diappointment to me Spring/Summer.
You all know what a fan I am of retro influenced styles, especially ’60s/mod looks. This coral mini-dress is made in a heavy jersey with a large bow at the neckline, elbow length sleeves and a side zip.
Sizes medium and large, or about U.S. 8-10 can get this on sale for $177.60, down from $370. Pictures, please!
Often you can get a good deal by buying off season. If you’re good at delayed gratification, buying for next fall or winter is a great idea.
Think how cheery this coral Marc by Marc Jacobs short winter coat will make you when you walk through a sea of black and grey. Everyone should have a longer formal winter coat, and a shorter casual one.
This was originally $550, but is on sale for $264, and is still available in sizes small, medium and large. It’s 80% wool, 20% nylon with a back pleat and satin lining.
Since I don’t wear wool, I find it difficult to find really cozy, soft sweaters. This grape colored cardigan by Malene Birger looks so soft and so comfortable for a size Large.
It’s a cotton/acrylic blend with a round neckline, long sleeves, white beaded buttons and front pockets to keep your well manicured fingers warm. :)
I particularly appreciate the edging at the cuffs and hem, which will help a good sweater keep its shape. “Calisten” retailed for $245 and is now an incredible buy at only $78.40.
I have a confession: I think these Tory Burch Jelly Reva flats are adorable. I know, I know. I can’t help it; every fashionista has their weakness.
But listen: aside from cobalt blue, sunshine/schoolbus yellow is the color this season. I snatched up a Dooney & Bourke handbag in the color on sale and I just adore it. I get complimented on it all the time.
If you wear a size 8/8.5 shoe, these normally $98 flats are on sale for $38! You all are lucky I rarely wear flats, otherwise we’d have to throw down.
Sizing info says to go down half a size if you wear a half size, and they’re available in an 8.
Yesterday, I was reminded by my good friend Heidi (who writes a really thoughtful size acceptance blog) that a good handbag is an investment. Especially if it’s not too trendy, it’s something that you’ll have and use for years.
That’s why I’m recommending this Mulberry Large Soho bag, for $278. To start, you can’t get a good designer bag for $278 unless you’re very lucky.
This is a classic shape in a not-too-trendy color. Be careful, as it may be a touch more orangey than it appears, depending on your monitor.
Soho has an adjustable shoulder strap, and silver hardware including a turnlock, which is a very safe closure. The inside is lined in twill.
Best of all – handbags have no size. Anyone can wear them. :D Last but not least, for more deals check out The Outnet, Net-a-Porter’s “bargain” little sister.
Thanks for reading, my little pr0n plums!
As always, it was good for me. Tell me, was it good for you?
