For the next 3 days, Neiman Marcus Last Call is offering an additional 40% off of any single item on their site. They are yet another one of the online discount department stores that have improved their offerings dramatically over the last few years. AND they're opening a new location in my neighborhood next month (in addition to the TJ Maxx and Nordstrom Rack!!), so Brooklyn girls stay tuned for a locals-only discount. While Vince, Joie and James Perse are some of my favorite brands to score major deals on, don't forget to check out their handbag selection. It is not unusual to get over 70% off of retail (especially during these additional 40% off sales!) on brands like Botkier, Ash, and Furla. Not to mention the shoes ...
Jeans and a blouse is about as basic as it gets, but only if you stop there. By adding special pieces; a vintage inspired lightweight jacket, a heavily embroidered bag, and some jewelry, you've got yourself an outfit. This Current/Elliott shirt was a major score from Piperlime last year ($30 marked down from $225!). Like a denim shirt, it is a wardrobe workhorse. Over a girly dress it adds just the right amount of toughness. With my outfit below, the pattern and hardware add interest and texture.
I have to say, as sad as I am to see summer go, I am beyond excited to switch out my clothes and my look. Stay tuned for more outfit posts this week!
