Ok, I need to impose a shopping ban on myself, but there are some great sales rolling in for the 4th weekend!
Ann Taylor has 40% off sale prices (JULY40) or 30% off a reg-price item (JULYSALE30). I'm still drooling over the Swarovsky Crystal Stretch Bracelet ($135), but can't bite yet.
I went to the mall for some J.Crew returns, and stopped in to check out the AT sale in person. I ended up with the Kaylee Embellished Flip-flop in Vachetta. SWOON. These are so, so, so gorgeous in person, I couldn't stand it. And for $30?? What the what? Sold. They didn't have the black in my size or I would have swooped in for those too. Love this nude color though, with some serious bling. I also snagged a couple of those muted metallic-y tanks (I can't find them online anymore) in a dark and a light silver, for only $12 each. Awesomeness.
I also wanted to try on the Chiffon Tiers Tank Top ($54). Alas, my son had a meltdown, so no fitting room for me. It looks like it would be more fitted and flattering than some of J.Crew's tiered options.
I checked out the jewelry, and on my wishlist is the Swarovski Circle Bracelet ($48) and the Long Swarovsky Circle Necklace ($48).
BTW, Ann Taylor Loft also has 40% off your order (FIX40), yay! (Free shipping on $125+) I didn't get to that store to check anything out in person.
I made a bunch of J.Crew returns, and then checked out what was left of their sale rack -- not much, but I found several things I was willing to buy on stupid Final Sale with the extra 20% off:
*Ankle stretch toothpick jean in amore wash (great pair of jeans, nice price)
* Nolita denim jacket (my jean jacket has seen better days, and I like the shorter fit of this, as well as the button detail. Was priced lower in store for me.)
* Crystal Carlyle Bracelet in dark charcoal (I looove the soft petal one I already have. It ended up at only $24, which I think is a good price for such a pretty piece)
* Brushed-stripe Tee in brozed clay (Here's the tank. I have 8 million of their tees already, but it's a lovely color and will look fab under my ginger cashmere cardi methinks. Can't beat $8, right?)
* Piped and Twisted Pocket Cardigan in pale buff (This one was a total surprise pick. It was priced less in store, so I thought I'd try it on for only $24. Ended up being super cute actually, albeit snag-prone. I never would have looked twice at this one without the sale price.)
The only piece I was hoping to find in person is the chiffon tiered tank, but alas, none to be seen.
p.s. My PS told me fall items will be in (our) store July 26. The day before my birthday, hmmm.
