Black Fridaying Done Right

I’m sorry for the misleading photo, Céline is not having a black friday sale and you still have to pay retail. HOWEVER, almost every other shop on the face of the earth has already gone or is going on sale as of tonight and even I, a self-assigned online shopping pro, am losing my mind. So to make things a little easier for you, I picked the 25 best Black Friday sales and the best pieces to buy from those sales. You’re welcome! Shopbop: %15 off of $250 or more, %20 off of $500 or more and %25 off of $1000 or more with the code GOBIG15 ASOS: 30% off of everything with promo code BLESSED until December 1st Need Supply: Extra 25% off sale items November 27–28 with promo code FRIDAY25, from November 29 through December 1, 25% off sitewide with code CYBER25 Front Row Shop: Up to %70 off Revolve: Up to 80% off Select Styles + 20% off sale items with code BLACKFRIDAY20 Topshop: Up to %50 off of selected lines MANGO: %30 …

The Fashion Medley

Vintage Lovers

Last weekend was a good one, and not just because it was the last glimpse of heaven with a sunny 10 degree Sunday but also because I scored the cable knit sweater of my dreams (%100 wool, a little cropped with low shoulders and extra long sleeves) among other things from TOKEN at the Old Wig Vintage Lovers sale. I’m not saying this because I’m friends with the owners, since we became friends thanks to their awesome work, but if you’re looking for a vintage shop that sells minimal and contemporary pieces you will gladly wear today and not look like you’re a collage girl about to go to a festival, your search is over. .

Ellery Resort 2016

When a photo of one of the Resort collections popped on my Pinterest feed this week, I found myself swimming in the pool of images from old seasons, searching for inspiration from all the collections I missed at the time. This one must have fell around the time I didn’t want to post anymore about Resort because there can’t be any other explanation to why I skipped the ever marvelous Ellery collection. Inspired by Anita Pallenberg but in a dominantly Ellery perspective, Kym reinterpreted the 70’s in her own structural, voluminous and fluid way – the signature flare got a makeover and got shorter for example, necks were adorned with chokers and teddy jackets & peacoats appeared; but the tailoring was pure Ellery. Sooo, resort is the time that falls between pre-fall and spring/summer collections which means, we can wear these now? No?


Winter Is Coming

Winter is coming, I know you’re scared (not as scared as I am, for sure, but still scared). Black Friday is also coming and I know you’re intimidexcited (so excited but intimidated by all the sales and don’t know what to buy where). I have good news: SHOPBOP‘s legendary Buy More & Save More sale starts TODAY and will go on until November 30th midnight pacific time! The sale will include all full priced & reduced items, with code GOBIG15 you will get %15 off of orders over $250, %20 off of orders over $500 and %25 off of orders over $1000. So to make things even easier for you, I picked some of my all time favorite winter looks and made the ultimate winter shopping list for you below. There’s nothing to be scared anymore.


Next Best Thing

In a perfect world, there would be no war and I could be dressed up head to toe in Céline all day every day. But the reality is terrible things are happening in the world, so much that you lose track and your sense after a while, and I call myself lucky if I can score a bag or pair of shoes on ebay every now and then. Our relationship is in the phase where we don’t know each other well enough to be friends on Facebook but I follow her on every social media channel possible (aka, stalking in the digital age). And as I’m saving money to get to know her better, I invest in my rebound relationship – the next best thing, Zara. I promised myself not to shop so much from high street stores anymore but this dress couldn’t go unnoticed. . Navy sweater dress with flare hem Zara (similar here & here) .
