1. A new closet favorite, the Burberry Bowpark Raincoat, is 30% off at Saks until next Monday (04/25/16). Sizes run 2-16; this coat fits half a size larger compared to more tailored Burberry options, and has a swing shape to it so those with narrow shoulders can order a size down. For anyone my size, I took a size 2 in this style but would have ordered a 0 if that had been an option.
1.5 Saks’ F&F sale is one of the better ones in recent memory. I am thisclose to pulling the trigger on the Black Halo La Reina Gown. Here are my other sale picks: Tali Bow Flats (I own these in navy and black; they fit true to size and are incredibly comfortable—like run five miles in them comfortable), Burberry Kensington Heritage Trench, Burberry Wool Toggle Coat, Burberry Diamond-Quilted Jacket, Burberry House Check Bowler Bag, Burberry Westminster Heritage Trench, A+O Lace Day Dress, Black Halo Jackie O Dress, Burberry Pleat-Back Short Trenchcoat, and Elie Tahari Samira Dress.
