Sale Alert: Let’s Shop Summer Shoes!

In my opinion, it’s never a coincidence that Shopbop’s annual Friends & Family sale launches on Tax Day.

Though I’m storing the majority if my return for an(other) upcoming trip abroad, you know I’ve got to pick up a new pair of statement pumps. Oh, and deets on that trip are coming très soon. Wink.dream-closet-shoes

I’m in open-toe mode after yesterday’s spring fever, so here’s a few of the summer sandals on my mind — all of which are 25% of with the code INTHEFAMILY14. Click below to shop my favorites:

J.Crew Mega-Sale

Monday morning PSA: J.Crew just launched a huge 24-hour sale – and everything is practically free. j.crew-saleOkay, maybe not free, but you get what I mean. I gave up shopping for Lent, as I’ve mentioned (!!!), so please do me a favor and do enough damage for both of us. And try not to rub it in too much.

Use code EXTRA40 for an additional 40-50% off your purchase of sale items. Now go, girl. GO! I’m keeping this post short-and-sweet as there’s a sale to be had. Report back. Happy shopping!


Holiday Edit: 2013 Gift Picks

If you’re anything like me, you’ve done zero Christmas shopping this month. Zilch. Nada.

I love giving gifts. But I really hate the crowds associated with holiday shopping. The clock is literally ticking down to my (pre-Xmas) flight across the globe; thus, checking off each name on my list is a priority for this weekend. That, and I guess, planning to spend at least three hours of my Monday afternoon at the Post Office. (Namaste, namaste, NAMASTE!!!)

 Here’s what I’m gifting those on my list this season // Click below to shop my picks:

(UPDATED) 50+ Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales

I have a love/hate relationship with holiday shopping… And by that, I mean I love sales and hate crowds. If you’re like I am, you avoid the shopper insanity known as Black Friday at all costs… In-person, at least.

As a result, I’ve rounded up a list of my 50 favorite online retailers — sorted by category and date — offering Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales (as well as my plan of attack, below).

Happy shopping — from the comfort of my couch to yours!

As for my online shopping plan of attack, I’ll be picking up some stocking-stuffer sparkle for friends and family from Capwell + Co, clearing out the designer shoe sections of The Outnet and Shopbop, and replenishing my tanning towelette collection from Kate Somerville.

Last year I had success at Tory Burch – she always has great gifts at affordable prices. I’m also looking for a new lens for my Canon T3i to take to Thailand! If you have recommendations, I’d love to hear them.
