Happy New Year! I’m haven’t been in the biggest of shopping moods and being away from the computer has helped. I’ve been stalking J.Crew every morning for sale popbacks (and they didn’t have the greatest year so that pesky final sale is not back yet!). I happily resold a number of things on eBay right after Christmas through this week and am motivated to organize more things to sell.
Over the holidays, I used my Clare V black basketweave simple tote (similar) with my gold Clare V clutch (which was taken out of circulation for months). The simple tote is one of their sturdiest bags and can accommodate a ton.
A few good sales, ordered in my level of interest/variety:
- The Outnet. 50% off a ton (they carry prior season Net-A-Porter). If you’re a CV fan, it’s a must click.
- Piperlime. Up to 30% off everything. Hint: Gap Inc applies discounts to each item, so if you return something and dip below the $350 minimum for the max 30% discount, it shouldn’t affect what you keep.
- Anthropologie. 25% off sale with code INAFLURRY. Expiration unknown.
- Roztayger. 25% off sale with code EXTRASTRENGTH through Sunday night!
- Steven Alan
- W Concept. 30% off everything with code NEWYEAR through Friday 1/9 6pm ET.
- MILLE. 25% off sale with code NEWYEAR2015. Expiration unknown.
- Neiman Marcus
- Saint Cloud
Shopbop‘s big savings event has started and will run through Cyber Monday. The discount is tiered and you can save up to 25% if you spend $1000. If you return items and fall below the $1000, you still get the 25% discount. In my experience, inventory is updated continuously so if you do not see your size/color, check back.

Many basics at great prices at Uniqlo! What I love about Uniqlo is that they post all of the sizes’ measurements on each product page. Many of their cuts are questionable (in that they are way too boxy and I’m not going for the Asian Eileen Fisher look that is popular in Japan and Korea), but occasionally there are gems. These prices, even with minor alterations, are a steal.
See the entire women’s sale here, but also navigate by category for the promotional items, which are excluded from the sale link.
P.S. The baby collection also looks adorable.
Need a camera/messenger/laptop bag? Crumpler in Soho is clearing out their inventory and converting into a luggage-only store. Everything is 70% off. The sale started on April 1 (no joke) and goes through the rest of the month. If you’re looking for something particular, try calling. I think they might do mail orders, but I’m not sure. I really wanted a rolling luggage bag, but they didn’t have any.
I have a 5 million dollar home and got a 6 million dollar home so that when I’m traveling, I can fit more than just a body and lenses. I will admit, when I’m just strolling about, I might stick the DSLR and a prime lens in my purse and wrap it in a scarf. As someone who’s dropped every piece of camera gear/lens at some point in time, I can’t recommend highly enough the effectiveness of a real camera bag to protect your investment. I’m also impressed with the “new” models that allow you to cover the velcro (which I happen to love for travel to shady places).
