black friday // the roundup.

Posted on November 27th, 2015

ASOS is offering 30% off the entire site. I’m on the lookout for a few looks for upcoming holiday parties, and here are three top picks for a polished look:

Time to stock up on workout gear, before the new year frenzy. Extra 25% off clearance with code GETOUTHERE at Nike.com. On my list:

Browsing through the James Perse sale makes me yearn to be back in LA. My favorites:

Linen Soft T ($59 in Carbon Pigment)Hooded Sweater Coat ($299 in Charcoal)Funnel Neck Cardigan ($249, in Taupe), and Birkenstock Arizona Sandal ($75 in White)

And lastly, East Dane is having their usual sliding discount sale: 15% off $250+, 20% off $500+, 25% off $1000+. It turns out they have some awesome gifts. A NYC blanket throw as a housewarming gift, Simon for the old school board-gamers, a chic MCM passport holder for the traveler on your list, and a few books for aspiring chefs, jetsetters and new graduates:

Posted on November 26th, 2015

Theory is always the place to stock up on luxe closet staples, without the insane designer price tags.

My picks: A denim turned leather jacket in the most beautiful leather, a maroon satin-look jacket to replace my black one, a silk cashmere turtleneck (which I have always been a fan of), a Mismo x Theory suit bag (its hard to find a sleek, stylish one these days), and a carryall for surviving NYC (or one to throw in your truck with all your work stuff, if you live anywhere else). Here they are:

I am all about AllSaints‘ aesthetic, though sometimes it is difficult to justify the $$ price tag. You and I are in luck, because basically everything on site (including leathers and coats, minus handbags) is 30% off. AllSaints rarely has sales on their leathers and coats, outside of their seasonal sales, where popular sizes xs, s and m are always sold out. Go wild! Here are my three favorite leather jackets:

Who knew a space like this existed in Queens, tucked away between warehouses, behind Costco?

An all black canvas, simple in form.
