Weekly Shopping Update: 8.11.13

For those of you who missed the sale I blogged about in this post but are interested in shopping the BR x Issa collection, here’s how to get ~50% off with your Gap/BR/ON credit card.

1AUG35 will take 35% off your total (full-priced) purchase. If you sign up for newsletters with a new e-mail address, you will receive a unique code for 25% off. These codes can be combined.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

I plan these Weekly Shopping Updates about a week in advance so sometimes items sell out in the interim. I have seen the Coach bags (on sale at Macy’s) pop back online so decided to leave them in anyway but at press time they are sold out.

The Michael Kors bags and Ralph Lauren styles pictured below should still be in stock.

E/W City Tote | Large E/W Tote | Medium N/S Tote

For those of you who own iPads, there are a few cases on sale: Michael Kors Quilted Stud iPad Case, Michael Kors Neoprene iPad Case, and Michael Kors Holiday iPad Case

I previously reviewed the Travel Tote pictured below in this post.

Michael by Michael Kors Americana Medium Travel Tote (solid color on sale here)

Other styles on sale: Michael Kors Jet Set Medium Travel Tote, Michael Kors Hamilton Saffiano Leather Tote, Michael Kors Selma Stud Large North South Tote, Tommy Hilfiger Flag Tag Large Saffiano Leather Tote, Michael Kors Saffiano Large Snap Wallet, and Lauren by Ralph Lauren Newbury Small Crossbody.

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Vachetta Crossbody Clutch

Retailer: ASOS
Discount: Take $5 off purchases of $50 with code USWELCOME5 or 10% off purchases of $75+ with code CHECKOUTTREAT.

I placed an order because I really wanted to see this blouse with a bow tie in person. The blouse looks somewhat sheer in the video so that’s a potential dealbreaker.

 ASOS Blouse With Lace Trim Placket And Bow Tie

I also ordered the following: Peplum Plate Detail Waist Belt (50% off), Pearl Peter Pan Collar (an even more affordable option here) and Peplum Plate Detail Waist Belt in Pink to try.

Another fun style to consider:

ASOS Skater Skirt in Leather Look

I didn’t keep either of the skirts pictured below. The Nishe Pencil Skirt in Ombre Lace was too small for me in the waist and I thought the lace, while photogenic, was cheap-looking in person.

Nishe Pencil Skirt In Ombre Lace
Length: 20″ | Waist: 11.5″| Hip: 17″

The Pencil Skirt in Monochrome Check is on super sale but the length is much too long for someone who is 5’2. The fabric, unmemorable, seemed overpriced (at its retail price).

ASOS Pencil Skirt in Monochrome Check
Waist: 12.25″ | Length: 29″ | Hip: 17″

And an intermission for some gratuitous designer new arrivals for fall. I have no use for another bag at the moment but still enjoyed browsing.

Gucci Lady Buckle Leather Top Handle Bag
Burberry The Small Orchard in Heritage Grain Leather (Also available in Medium)

Retailer: J. Crew
Discount: 20% off with code WIT20
I did a lot of damage at J. Crew last month and kept the bulk of my order. I will review them individually in the future. In the meantime, if you have questions about any of the following , let me know and I can provide you measurements or general thoughts: Boy Shirt in Classic White (00P), No.2 Pencil Skirt in Double-serge Cotton (00P), Collection Icon Trench (00), and Keeper Chambray Shirt (00P).

J. Crew Peplum Dress in Stretch Wool in 00P

Retailer: Piperlime
Discount: End-of-season sale

Threads for Thought Benatar Dress

Love the casualness of this Tinley Road dress.

Tinley Road Knit Wrap Maxi Dress

And as cute as this checkered skirt is…I can’t help but express disapproval of the unprinted back (for a $250 skirt!)

Tibi Checkered Border Mini Skirt

This bag isn’t on sale but I really like the design.

Danielle Nicole Alexa Mini

Retailer: Forever 21
There’s never a shortage of cheap thrills to be found at Forever 21 but, as someone who was once stuck with hundreds of dollars in store credit (and still has some left), I can’t advocate ordering online unless you are in a similar predicament. If you are, consider the following:

Forever 21 Professional Envelope Satchel

I received some e-mails in response to this post in which I wore a red Zara skirt. This Forever 21 skirt looks like a promising alternative but the length is potentially problematic at 14.75″ (according to measurements posted online).

Forever 21 Box Pleated Skirt
Forever 21 Cozy Varsity Jacket (in four colors)

Happy shopping!
