… My favorite local boutique, Otte New York, is having their annual 20% off site-wide sale this weekend (use code “FALL20″).

To note, the sale includes 3.1 Phillip Lim handbags, Catbird rings, Alexander Wang err’thang, lots of designer denim and two of my fail-proof wardrobe staples — the Alexis hat (above) and the Ellen dress, as shown styled two ways.

I have a lot of Otte merchandise, so this is one of my favorite sales of the season. Plus, you can rarely find these designer names on mark-down. I’ve got the rag & bone pajama jeans in my cart (Jess has them and swears by them); but that sale section looks pretty tempting, too… Back to browsing.
