Saturday Shopping – 10/24/15

Hi everyone! Popping in today because I’ve found myself perusing these sales while sippin’ my morning coffee, and thought a few items I’ve found were worth a share while a full range of sizes were still available. Enjoy!

The deal

50% off almost everything (excludes cashmere and some leather) with code FALL50.

Silk! I love a good deal on silk, especially when it’s sized for petites. I’m really liking this pocketed version (so mensweary!), especially since the navy is marked down, bringing the final price down to around $40! But, it also comes in a cleaner silhouetted silk/spandex blend (I wonder if this one runs smaller because of the spandex?) if you’re so inclined.



Sweet-ass Sweaters! I’ve been looking for a chunky grey sweater to wear under sleeveless outwear (long vests, sleeveless blazers, etc.), because I think the sleeves just look so much better when they have texture. This one is looking like it might work nicely. Another option I like is this speckled crew neck with side slits. And anyone with frizz or static prone hair will appreciate being able to undo the shoulder buttons on this simple crewneck for a wider neckline when slipping on and off.



Feminine menswear! And of course, because I love a good menswear inspiration, this plaid coat has caught my fancy, as well as these cute peplum dress shirts in blue and white. Oh geez, do I need more windowpane?




The Deal

Is it just me or is Gap looking a little cooler right now? 40% off your entire order with code MAJOR.

Isabel Marant dupe! I actually bought this one twice. If you like the Isabel Marant oversized look, this is almost an exact dupe for her super popular blazer coat from a few seasons ago (minus the chest pocket, sleeve buttons, back vent, and mostly wool construction). This thing is OVERSIZED (I think I measured the shoulder on size petite xs to be 18″!), but is perfectly so. I returned once, regretted it, and just repurchased.



Perfect tees! I just made a big ol’ order of some of these because I’m always looking for the perfect petite slouchy (but not so slouchy that my bra shows) tees; and according to a lot of the emails I get, you guys are too! In my shopping cart are (click image for the product page):



Cashmere! I’ve never tried Gap cashmere, so I added this crewneck to my cart. I liked the cropped length, sweatshirt styling, and petite sizing. But there’s more options like this cozy looking turtleneck.




I spy with my little eye

Adorable flats in small sizes on clearance! These are so adorable! Even better? They are available in a full range of sizes from a small size 4 up to size 8.5. Even better than that? They are clearance priced at $36.87 + $5 for shipping.




I spy with my little eye

The perfect Saint James mariner tee in kids sizing Any fan of stripes or Frenchiness should know about Saint James, the company widely accepted to be the creator of the iconic breton stripe tee. I love this because not only are the kids tees friendlier priced than the adult versions, but they are perfectly sized for petites! It just arrived in the mail and I’m wearing the size 10y as I type this (I’ll get it up on the blog for Monday)! Meant to fit relaxed and boxy, no need to worry about boxy kids sizing. These are basically just scaled down versions of the men’s shirts worn by chic French women for decades. Also super awesome…purchase multiple sizes to try on knowing you are protected by Nordstrom’s great free shipping and return policies.

    Gap is looking way cooler! I like the direction they are going in. Now, if they can only offer smaller sizes…Let me know how that vintage relaxed tee works out for you. I tried on a lot of tees recently all over the place looking for a good one.
