Today I have a few sale review of items that might pop back during the MUSTSHOP 30% off sale promo, so I wanted to get them up. There are some new sale pieces, like the Invitation Clutch in dot and the Bubble Necklace in pink, green and bright blue (promo too, not final!). At the end of the post, I also offered up some cute picks from the Talbots sale going on -- 20% off full price with free shipping/no min (on FP), and crazy-low clearance items (will ship free if you include a FP item).
I've had my eye on the Collection Jacquard Keyhole Blouse for a while, and it recently finally dropped in price. It looks to be sold out online in the sale color, but I'm sure will pop back now and again. I ordered it in a size 4, as I wasn't sure of sizing. I think the 4 is ok, though a 2 might be a little better. I'm not sure if the 2 would be shorter though. ETA: Ordered the 2 and prefer that size. I didn't notice a major difference in length. Don't mind all the wrinkles, this is straight from the package. The color is darker than online, which is actually good b/c it's not the same shade as my pale skin. I like the little gold button, and the texture makes it a little more interesting. This has a bit of Anthro vibe to it, with the bit of puff in the shoulders (which I know some of you dislike, so noting it here), and the blouse-y sleeves (just the bottom half).
The shorts are my $11.99 black and white polka dot score from Talbots.
Speaking of Talbots, I don't know if you've checked out their sale, but there are some darn cute things at crazy prices. True, I've been pretty disappointed since last fall's fun line, but there are still some diamonds in the rough. Sizes are going pretty quickly in sale. Things do pop back. The outlet items are final sale, but with even more rock bottom prices. Also, they are offering 20% off and free shipping on full price. I found a lot to like in new arrivals actually. I added in a pair of navy FP tights to a basket full of sale items and free shipping applied. From full price I like:
Audrey Cashmere Sweater -- Lots of pretty colors (though I admit it's not J.Crew). Nice for neutrals though. I like the collar and think it could be a nice option if you like the cashmere Tippi from JC.
Argyle Cardi -- Pink and burgundy, one of my fave fall mixes.
Seasonless Wool Sheath -- Great for work, especially if it's conservative.
Christi Haircalf Plaque Pointy-Toe Pump -- Ooh, love these in this beautiful color and easy heel. The price is so reasonable too, even at FP.
Becca Lizard-Embossed Almond-Toe Flat -- So pretty in that red. Also in black and brown.
A lot of cute flats to check out for sure!
Sandi Chunky Heel Boot -- Ooh, that dark wine color.
Pebbled Leather tote -- Love the navy/brown combo
Glen Plaid Equestrian Clutch -- Adorable!
Houndstooth-etched cuff -- So cute and simple.
Cashmere Poncho -- I would wear this pretty much the same way, with skinnies and tall boots. Cozy, comfy.
Glen Plaid Hooded Cape -- I still dig capes, and this is cute in the glen plaid. All you need to do is put on a black turtleneck and some slim black pants or skinny jeans, and done. This would have been awesome with brown leather buttons.
From sale I like:
Ocean-plaid Top -- How much do I love these colors?
Grace Fit Ponte Knit White-Piped Jacket -- Cute tipped jacket in easy ponte fabric.
Voile Crystal Pleat Skirt -- Um, $9.99? White, pink and light blue available.
Floral Eyelet Sheath -- So pretty! Put it away for a surprise next summer. Cotton, fully lined. Hard to beat $30.
Cheetah Clutch -- Fun for an evening out. These clutches are fairly small and thin, fyi.
Laura Ribbon-Lace Spectator -- This is an outlet item, down to $32.
Refined Ponte Knit Sheath -- Classic silhouette, nice stretchy ponte.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
