Labor Day Deals & Discounts

Welp, just kidding. I couldn’t help but check-in with you once more before the holiday weekend.

So, let’s talk about next week. As in, SEPTEMBER! Next week kicks off Fashion Week, football season and fall, which means this weekend is crunch time. There’s a shitload of sales to be had.

[If you are picturing me poised in a starting block like I'm in a track & field race, that's correct. That's how I feel.]

Though hard to believe it’s here, September is one of my favorite months. There’s nothing quite like the challenge of styling my summer essentials for fall — and the opportunity to usher in a few new pieces into my closet.

There are a few specific things that I invest in seasonally — white jeans, a high-quality handbag and any summer essentials I’ve been wanting (needing), which are now likely on sale.

WHITE JEANS: It’s a known fact that Labor Day is the BEST time to score white denim on sale. A few of my favorite online retailers to shop are Nordstrom and Shopbop, who each have free shipping and incredible return policies.  I actually just bought this pair yesterday.

In addition, Joe’s Jeans is offering 30% off all purchases with code LABORDAY.

DESIGNER HANDBAGS: It’s a rarity that retailers will offer discounts on designer duds — but Otte New York (one of my favorite local boutiques) is offering 20% off ALL designer shoes and bags this weekend — including the likes of 3.1 Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang. It’s no secret that I have a weakness for Pashli(s).

SUMMER ESSENTIALS: And, of course, there’s no better time to shop for summer essentials than right now. Here’s a few of my favorite stores that are having amazing end-of-the-season sales:

  • Anthropologie: Extra 20% off all sale — with 600 items just added (ends 9/1)
  • C.Wonder: Additional 50% off sale and 30% off select full-price items
  • J.Crew: Extra 40% off final sale with WEEKEND; free shipping on orders over $100 (ends 8/31)

Weekend Update (+ a NYFW giveaway)

I am SO excited for today’s post.

I have a few links to share, an update on the survey you took last week and one killer giveaway to announce (hint: FASHION WEEK).  Since time is of the essence, I’ll get right to it.

  • LABOR DAY AGENDA

Hooray for the holiday weekend! I don’t know about you, but mine’s all about disconnecting from the digital world.

Did you ever go to summer camp? Yeah, like sleep-away camp – that’s what I’m doing. No work, no cell service and no laptops. There is only dining halls, camp fires and flip-cup slip-n-slide relay races. You best believe I’ll be reporting back on Tuesday with a trophy of sorts.

  • SURVEY UPDATE

Wow, guys. You rock — seriously. Reading through your survey comments and thoughts brought me to near-tears (in a good way) over the past week and I can’t thank you enough for taking the time to share them. I’ve closed the link so that I can start filtering through responses, and yes, I will share the results with you in a few weeks. In the meantime…

  • NYFW GIVEAWAY

Part of the reason I’m looking forward to a nature-bound weekend is because Fashion Week is the most insane period of the entire year. Every year. And it’s next week. Like, it’s bat-shit (which you know if you read my recaps) — but in a way that’s equally as fun as it is stressful.

I’m always looking for ways to bring the experience closer to you guys, which is why I’m verrrry excited to tell you that I am giving away TWO fashion show invitations (to major designers) today. Scroll for details:

SK-II, the official skincare sponsor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, kindly gifted me a couple of extra tickets to big-name designer shows at Lincoln Center  – and two of you will get to attend them with me! More details will be provided to each winner, but one show is on Saturday afternoon; the other on Tuesday morning. You’ll also win a VIP skincare package from SK-II, valued at more than $100.

Here’s details on how to enter:

A bit of fine print: The winner MUST live in or plan to be in NYC on the date of the show. All other costs (hotel, travel, etc) are not included. To my non-New York readers, I’m sorry. But know that I’m actively working to figure out a fun future giveaway for you, too!

Exciting stuff. Good luck! And with that, I bid you adieu for the holiday weekend – hope yours is a safe, sunny and happy one.
