Designer Lusts

The bug has be in it’s dirty little clutches this morning. With NY Fashion Week just a few weeks away my eyes have turned to seeking the great designer clothes on sale now. I’ve seriously been so obsessed this morning that I didn’t realize it was 9 am and I hadn’t yet posted a blog. I figured I’d take the easy way out and take you shopping with me.

Let’s get on over to Don’t worry, it’s not far. And I don’t even have my contacts in yet, let alone in proper shopping attire, so join me in your pj’s and let’s have a look.

I’ve just added this darling Marc by Marc Jacobs dress to my shopping bag ($184 down from $368). I’m not sure how it will look on me, but I cannot resist the soft look of the navy velvet. It may be a bit much for September in NY, but it can’t hurt to have it shipped to me for a try-on.

Oh but wait…this is a bit more summer-ish and I love the vibrant colors. Twisted-front dress by Single, just $189 down from $315. However it won’t take me into fall as easily and I’d feel better if I could wear it at least twice.

Oh dear…here is another. Now my friends will have a good laugh because I’m probably going to be mocked as I said I wouldn’t be caught dead in leggings after the mental scars of the 80’s, but I might have to endure some scary deja vu to have this beautiful jersey dress by 3.1 Phillip Lim. Perhaps on my short self this dress will fall above the knee as the details claim and then I can carry on my ban of leggings. Was $430, now $215 at

As you can tell, there are some fabulous discounts to be had online and in stores now. A few pointers on sale shopping: don’t buy it just because it’s on sale. Buy it because you will wear it, or it’s not a savings at all.
Remember that you can often have jeans hemmed, taken in at the waist, etc. But once altered, it’s yours, so be sure it can be altered correctly.
