Weekly Shopping Update: 6.27.2013

For some reason pictures I uploaded last weekend refused to load today. I will investigate the cause of this technical failure tonight so check back if you want to see pictures of the following: Factory Girls’ Printed Dress in Neon Persimmon, Factory V-Neck Maxidress, Forever 21 Essential 3/4 Sleeve Striped Top, Essential Boat Neck Top, Relaxed Fit Racerback Tank, and a few others.

I’ve wanted the Alice + Olivia Bali Beaded Collar Top since March and had hoped it would get more discounted but the smaller sizes have already sold out at merely 40% off.
Retailer: J. Crew Factory
Picks: I took a chance on the Factory Girls’ Printed Dress in Neon Persimmon. It is similar in design to the Crewcuts Canterbury Dress
that I love to bits (then worn to shreds) and while the poppy print
isn’t as striking as the retail version of the same print that Cee owns, I think I will wear this enough to justify the purchase.

This print is also available as a blouse, mini skirt, and scarf.

Retailer: Burberry
Discount: Summer Sale. Shop sale RTW, bags, shoes, and accessories. I have always adored the Belted Collar Wool Coat for its fairly timeless design.

I picked up the Burberry Brit Wool Twill Dress Coat
a few weeks ago and against my better judgment decided to keep it. I
have a soft spot for frock coats and this one stole my heart. It has
since gone on sale at Burberry retail stores (and online) and I consider
it a worthy purchase. The size 2 in this style fits like 00P J. Crew

And some trenches in timeless silhouettes and shades of khaki.

Retailer: Forever 21
Picks: The Draped Georgette Top that I wore in the last post has been well loved and I continue to recommend it to everyone I know. There are a few similar options offered at Forever 21 that I am tempted to try: Plunging Neckline Top, Pleated Surplice Top, and Stripe Surplice Shirt.

Draped Georgette Top | size S

The Essential 3/4 Sleeve Striped Top wasn’t a keeper for me. It’s a good value at $14.80 but I don’t like it enough to keep.

Bust: 16.5″ | Length: 21.5″ | Shoulder: 14.25″

And a cheap and adequate tank top for layering or exercising purposes.

Relaxed Fit Racerback Tank | size S

And some fun summer dresses for your consideration.

Retailer: Gap
Discount: Red, White, and Blue Sale (many dresses are 50% off). Shop women’s, men’s, girls‘, boys’, todders’, and baby’s. This offer does not stack with the extra 20% off code GAPSALE.

The scorching heat outside has me pining for shorter dresses in breathable fabrics and my search has led me to mostly girls’ or junior’s styles. I ordered the Printed Halter Dress despite many reviews that mention its more tunic-like length as a cause for concern.

Printed Halter Dress – on sale for $19.98

I almost always regret ordering from the children’s department but the attractive prices and potentially forgiving cuts drew me in. I also picked up the Chevron Tank Dress (available in five colors), the Striped Dress (six colors), and Chevron Shorts.

Chevron Tank Dress – on sale for $12.48

Retailer: LOFT
Discount: 50% off tees, tanks, shorts, swim, and cover-ups with code SUMMERFAVS.

Retailer: Ann Taylor
Discount: 30% off your entire purchase (excluding new arrivals) with code SUMMERCHIC.

Happy shopping!
