Weekend Guide – 7/15/11


Ann Taylor – New styles added to sale for up to 70% off, and new pre-fall styles are trickling in. Free shipping on $150 or more. I’m interested in this new refined chambray blouse (as if I need more chambray, right?), this shell with ties, and for those of you who love the Perfect Pump, new colors have been stocked (I like the Toffee). See Ann Taylor reviews on Fit Review.

LOFT – Extra 40% off sale items and free shipping on $75 or more. New arrivals are trickling. I’m curious to try this woven button front with tie, this tie front shell with lace detail (What LOFT? No petite? I wonder if xxs will fit well enough?), and for all you who love the look of tweed but find wool itchy, this dress has a tweed print on polyester. See LOFT reviews on Fit Review.

Banana Republic – 25% off your entire purchase (exp. 7/17/11) with code BRSAVE25. My picks: the seersucker shorts that look much better on than on the model are finally on sale, as is the striped button-back blouse. This lace shell would be a cute layering piece for those of you who love lace. See Banana Republic reviews on Fit Review.

Nordstrom – The Anniversary Sale has started! Do I need another satchel bag? And I lost some makeup brushes in my last move…but these M.A.C. exclusives look like fun replacements. I also want to check out this juniors pointelle sweater, the new colors of the Black Halo Jackie O dress are divine, and this Theory “Gracie” blazer looks an awful lot like the “Gratian“. Gah! I love fall merch!

LOFT Outlet – Clearance sale, up to 60% off.

    BR is having additional 40% off sale stuff in stores then 25% off your entire purchase. The button down shirt that you reviewd a while back is now $15 :)

    Thanks so much for pointing out that new Theory jacket! I will have to start stalking it. :) I have been wanting the Gratian since I saw it on all of you. Does the “Gracie” jacket come in 00 anywhere? I’m pretty sure 0 will be too big, as my other Theory is 00 and fit me perfectly off the rack. Also, I’m not sure about the color. Gray doesn’t always work near my face. The Nordstrom near me does not carry Theory, but Bloomingdale’s does. I will certainly investigate. Thanks again!

    • Hi Diana! I just saw the “Gracie” at Nordstrom in size 0, and as you can imagine, it was too big. I asked the sales associate to look for a 00 and she couldn’t find one in the system anywhere! She wasn’t sure if it was already sold out, or if Nordstrom just didn’t order any in that size. So sad!

      If you find them in size 00 anywhere, please come back and let me know! :)

    Kelly! Thank you for tweeting the BR vest. I grabbed a size 0 today and it fits me very well. I would never have thought to try it on if it weren’t for your tweet. I ended up loving the look of it. Great quality and fantastic price too. :)
