It's another fabulous Friday Buy Day. No theme this week except for some favorites that are deeply discounted. J.Crew, Piperlime and Barneys Warehouse are having blowout sales and we're using this week to feature some necessary wardrobe requirements.
The first requirement is a darling sundress. This one by Wren is the perfect combination of a little bit sexy and a little bit sweet. Wear this to a friend's baby shower, or to brunch with your family. Add a panama hat and espadrilles and head to Napa for a day of wine-tasting. And, it certainly can be dressed up with statement earrings and gladiator-style heels for a warm evening out with the one you love.
Next necessary purchase: This army swing jacket from J. Crew. Originally almost $200, marked to $129 and now an additional 30% off the sale price with the code THEBEST. Love the color, love the boxy, cropped shape and love the idea of wearing this with an outfit slightly more fancy than what you might traditionally see: we love it with super skinny jeans, a feminine floral blouse, and ankle-strap stilettos. Not expected but quite chic. It, of course, would also look terrific with distressed jeans, leopards flats (or high-tops) and a v-neck tee. Be brave and embrace the less fitted, more voluminous style of this swing jacket...just make sure to balance the relaxed shape with a fitted bottom half.
Oh, hi cute shoe. How are you and where have you been all my life? An espadrille with a wrapped ankle in orange (that is on sale for barely over $100 with almost all sizes left)? Done. With ripped jeans, with cut-offs, with a sundress, with a cover-up and a bathing suit. Out to breakfast, out to lunch, and actually stylish enough to wear out to a casual dinner. For a gift, for yourself, for Mother's Day. Whatever your justification...just buy them already.
Finally, we get to talk about the Flare!! This one by MIH is awesome: it features a mid-rise, dark rinse and perfect flare. In other words, it is flattering on virtually EVERYONE. On sale from $200 to $89 with every size left in stock, this is a mandatory staple for your closet. (I repeat, $89 with all sizes left) This brand has a long in-seam, and is particularly flattering on all you blessed tall girls. But truly...with the clean, dark wash and flare style it is a flattering jean for most body-types, not to mention spot-on trend (and you can't beat the price). Where them with high-heels or high-wedges to get the most slimming look. And, if you get them altered, make sure to wash them first and have them altered to the length where they are almost (literally almost) skimming the floor...it will elongate your legs and make you like 5 lbs lighter. We're pretty sure $89 is the cheapest and fastest way to grow a couple of inches and lose a couple of pounds(:
Last mandatory purchase this week is this stunning bikini from Melissa Odabash. This bikini is perfect in a lot of ways: the light snakeskin pattern will perfectly highlight your bronzed bod, the gold hardware on the briefs is decadent and interesting, while the twisted bandeau style on the top is modern and flattering, At barely over $100, from $200, it is a small price to pay for the luxe look of this chic two-piece.
