It’s the big Shopbop fall sale, everyone


I love when Shopbop has these sales, because you get a nice markdown on items that otherwise might not ever get discounted. The deal is this: you get 20% off all orders under $200 and 25% off all orders over $500. I’m considering going for this jacket, which has such a good shape and a most excellent leopard print.

I love a grey suede boot, and this one has such a good semi-pointy toe.

R13 jeans are my jam, but I always wait for these sales to buy them cause they’re pricey. I own this pair and wear it endlessly.

If you’re at all interested in buying a pair of leather jeans, this sale is definitely something to take advantage of. I swear by my Frames.

Top 5 of the week: What’s new at Madewell


This faux fur muffler is just the adorableness.

A good solid coat with nice, simple lines.

A striped shirt I am very tempted to add to my menagerie of striped shirts.

This denim chore jacket is perfect for kicking around on weekends.

And I’d wear this velvet cami under a blazer on a date.

Various sweatshirts I’m liking right now



Sweatshirts are good for lounging, of course, but I like them layered under coats and jackets for a casual-chic kind of a look. (It’s a look I overdid about a decade ago, but I’m feeling ready to re-embrace it.) I love this, with Zoe Karssen’s trademark bat.

Here’s one I actually own. It reminds me of prep school—not always a good thing—but in a nice way.

The message that never gets old.

The side-zipper here is just aces.

And of course I’m all over this because it’s blue and black, a combination I love.

This reminds me of the Agnes B snap cardigans that were so big in the 80s.

A camo choce, but of course.

This is actually a dress if you can believe it, but I like the idea of wearing it with leather leggings.

And finally, a splurgy choice from Comme des Garcons that I have wanted for years but can’t quite bring myself to spring for.
