This time of year is really tough for me. There are end of season sales going on everywhere I look, and I lack the strength to resist. Every day my inbox is overflowing with sale notices. I even lack the strength to unsubscribe from those. What am I to do? Every year my husband gives me that look when the credit card statement comes in- and I truly am sorry. But I can’t seem to stop myself. I try, I really do. And there are certain sales that I just cannot resist. They’re just too good. I picked up a couple tops from JCrew and Madewell (two of my favs) that were so cheap, they were practically giving them away. I would have been a fool not to buy them. (When you get emails from JCrew and Madewell that say 40% off final sale items, you take a look. I’m no fool.) And now, two other places are having sales that are off. the. hook. Hello, Zara and Shopbop. (I can hear every man that follows this blog rolling their eyes and leaving this page now-except for my husband, who wants to know what I spent.) Nearly everything at Zara is on serious sale, both online and in-store, and I have browsed both. It’s insane how good it is. And Shopbop is offering an additional 25% off their sale items until tomorrow. I’ve already taken advantage of both. I picked up a pair of sneakers from Zara that I’ve been drooling over for months for $29.99 (normally $130). They’re pony hair leopard sneakers with spikes. Because what girl doesn’t need those in her closet? And I picked up a cute cover up/dress from Shopbop for $20. (was normally $75 and has since sold out.) But that hasn’t stopped me from continuously stopping by both places. I was in Zara tonight, and just actually left the Shopbop site. And with that, I just thought I’d share with you some of my favorite things that are out there right now.
Here are my Zara picks:
I love me a funky trouser. This is the printed trouser with side stripe. $29.99
I really wish this fugly sweater wasn’t covering up this skirt, because it really is gorg. And would have come home with me tonight if they had sizes bigger than a 2. It’s the linen boho skirt and it’s $19.99.
Leather effect shorts. $19.99. Bam.
These are my new loves and I got ’em for $29.99. Buy them so we can be twinsies.
And now over to Shopbop:
Isn’t this the sweetest little summer tank? It would look so cute over a bandeau or bikini top. Love. $54.60 (And remember, if you buy today or tomorrow, take an additional 25% off.)
I do believe Tory Burch has perfected the beach tote. This one is $185.30.
I really love Young Fabulous & Broke-their pieces are so cool and casual. This maxi dress is just perfect. $117.00
Another YF&B maxi. This one also comes in black. $165.60
Rachel Pally is a go-to for beautiful, easy and timeless pieces. Her dresses flow so beautifully. One of my favorite dresses that I own is by her and I reach for it time and time again. You’re bound to love anything RP you buy, and with this sale, now is a good time to do so. This beautiful one is $93.60.
I have to tell you, I really, really want this dress. I am so in love with the leather bodice. (and anything leather, really) This dress would get serious, serious rotation in my closet. $171.50
How cute is this case? I’m a HUGE DVF fan, and a huge fan of her lips print that was everywhere the past couple seasons. It will look really great on your phone, too. $24.00
I think I love lace just as much as I love leather. This little white number is so, so sweet. And we all need a LWD in our closet. $137.50
Seriously, I could go on and on here. There are so many beautiful things to choose from. I just can’t stop looking. I think may need some help.
