to shop / petit bateau mariniere striped tee & more

I’m pretty obsessed with French label, Petit Bateau. They’re having a secret sale and their classic mariniere is 70% off! You can also check out the rest of the sale here. There are plenty of deeply discounted items for baby, kids, and women. PB is one of my favorite brands to gift for friends with babies.

Some other sales to note:

  • Steven Alan’s online sample sale is ending tonight. They restocked since pre-sale and day 1.
  • ISAAY has a 70% off section, including Inhabit cashmere. You cannot stack the discount with any vouchers. It is a little stale, in my opinion, but you may find something you like!
  • Refinery29 Shops has a $50 for $100 Club Monaco online credit offer going on. Limit 2 per person. Expiration unknown, but it may sell out soon.

to shop / marinière & stripes

While I love lace, polka dots, and marinière stripes, my love for the former two are waning. I think stripes are the most versatile print of the three. I think I’m far from getting sick of stripes — I picked up five striped tops in Paris! Each interpretation was so unique. Look how cheerful a striped tee makes an outfit.

to travel & shop / {november 2011} paris – petit bateau

Continuation of this Petit Bateau post.

Petit Bateau is all over Paris. I have no idea how their sales are like in Paris, but I can’t afford to wait. They were having a small promotion when I was there – 20% off two or more items, excluding anything black or blue {stripes were eligible for the promotion} – and in true Parisian fashion, it was very subtly advertised in the store. I happened to catch a glimpse of the store window on the way in and it was written on the very bottom left. I don’t know much French, but I know enough to know soldes = sale :)

Here are some snapshots of their tiny lookbook. Their baby/kid line is so adorable. I wish they had everything in adult sizes! {Oh wait, they do.}

to shop / {cyber monday edition} petit bateau

I have a few brands that I love love love and Petit Bateau is one of them. Any girlfriend who’s been at Chicago Premium Outlets with me knows this! I first read about their t-shirts in Vogue when I was in grade school. Many years later, I stumbled upon their amazing outlet store in the Chicago Premium Outlets. What most people don’t know is that Petit Bateau is beyond a children’s brand. They have an extensive womenswear line and have branched into menswear in recent years.
