Shopping the discount stores, part 2: Saks Off Fifth


alc top

Shopping for clothes on Saks off Fifth can be frustrating, because so many items are sold out in all but one size, and I don’t know about you, but it’s usually not mine. So I’ve included some garments here, but have mostly focused on bags, as they do not come sized. I did like this  A.L.C. top, though, with its nice deep neckline.

And you can’t beat the leopard print on this silk Equipment button-down.

This sequined clutch is perfect for evening, and I think it’s just the tiniest bit edgy.

A suede jacket with a slightly retroish feel.

I was pleased to find this Longchamp leather backpack, even though it isn’t discounted by as much as would make me happy.

I’m pretty sure I wrote about this Iro sweater the first time it came around: I like its side slits, and that it looks chunky, but doesn’t add a lot of bulk.

A very elegant saddle bag.

I like the hardware on this tote, and usually I’m not a big fan of hardware.

This bag is such a good blue, and the texture is appealing too.

    Off 5th is a bit more all over the place than Nordstrom Rack. Prices weirdly tend to shift from day to day, also, depending on the promo they’re running.

    That A.L.C. Top is amazing, had me oohing and aahing at first glance!

    I still tend to think all of the offerings at these places were never intended for the full price retail stores.

    My Nordstrom Rack (in Westchester County no less) sells drugstore cosmetics.
