Sale Alert: Burberry Brookesby Short Trench Coat

I want to do a really quick post on this beautiful trench in Alizarin Crimson (comes in Navy as well). I got it in the mail today and it was love at first sight. It's absolutely gorgeous and the fit is flattering to petite frames. I didn't get a chance to take any pictures, but don't want to wait to post in case the sizes sell out. It's currently on sale for 30% off (Reg. $895, on sale for $626.5).  For those of you looking for a spring/fall light weight trench, I highly recommend that you give this a try.

Sale Alert: Valentino Bags, Burberry Trenches and Coats

Valentino Bags Leidy Leather mini crossbody Tote 64% off $239.99 (in coral red, black, tan). See the black on me here.  The bag is made by an Italian maker Mario Valentino, not to be confused by the Italian Fashion designer Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani. 

The bag is a high quality dupe of the famous Celine nano crossbody, which costs around $2400. 
For 10% of the price after discount (the original cost was around $650), I think it's a worthwhile purchase. The inside of the bag is unlined. The leather is of very high quality. The strap is not adjustable, but as you can see it fits petites like me very well. Not too long, not too short.

'Marylesdale' Hooded Nylon Jacket (Big Girls) - only $236. Check lined and beautiful deep fuchsia color.  Great for spring days.
Other quilted and goose down jackets up to 40% off sale here.

I own this Crombrook trench coat and love it. I wear a size 2. Sleeves need to be shortened and belt hoops raised by about an inch, but no other alterations are required for me.  Currently on sale for $766.5

For a single breasted coat, give this Rushfield trench a try. I love the beautiful red color and size 2 fits me well. 

I have also tried this red duffle coat in size 2. This coat runs big, and the oversized sleeves don't flatter my figure. However the coat is still super cute. I love this year's finsdale which seems to have a slightly simmer sleeve design.

2015 Spring New Arrivals Picks (Nordstrom, J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Loft, Talbots, etc)

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great weekend so far. My family went to Cancun for a week long vacation and that was the best part of 2015 for me.  The brutal New England Weather has reminded me of why I had a hard time settling down after moving here 12 years ago from the sunny California.  The weekly or sometimes twice a week storms have dumped so much snow that it just feels depressing to say the least. I'm still wrapped in heavy layers and scarves, but I'm so eager for spring to arrive! I've been flipping through spring catalogs and picked a few that I'm going to try on at some point.  If you have already, please share here.

BP Luminate Open Toe Dress Sandal $59.95 - in 5 colors. Love the pink, nude, and mint.
(update: I purchased the mint in my regular size 6, and think it runs about half a size too big. I will need to size down to 5.5)

Fishtail Anorak $198 C0154 - comes in vintage mint and olive
Rolled-Sleeve Pocket tee in Stripe $39.5 - in black/white and ivory ash pink
Tweed stripe drop-waist dress C3262 $168 (25% off with code SWEETSALE) super cute.

Talbots - 25% off discount on entire purchase. No code needed. Expires 3/8.
Macrame-print dress $129
Impressionist floral fit-and-flare dress $169
Love the pattern. It reminds of the Red Valentino dress I bought last year.

Ann Taylor
update 3/11: 40% off select full price styles with code FRIENDS40.

Relaxed Trench in Cork - just beautiful.
Embroidered Floral Pencil Skirt with this mini pebbled signature tote in Winter Cora
Kylie Suede Pumps in Blooming Rose (omg this pink color is to die for)

Striped pleated skirt $69.5
Windowpane tie waist dress $69.5
Lace Blossom tee $69.5
Portolano Light Weight Cashmere wrap in dusty rose (was $241, now $84. I bought it for spring). Invite here.
Update: Got it and love it. Just what I was looking for. Beautiful color. 
Yochi Double-sided pearl earrings (was $65, now $22. Made in the US.) Invite here.

Last Day: Shopbop Big Event Sale 25% Off

Don't miss the opportunity to stock up. Shopbop sale with code BIGEVENT15 is ending tonight. The discount applies to both full price and sale items with very little exclusions.

3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli - hardly ever see a discount on the Pashli's. See the mini on me here.  I think the medium size is very practical and not too oversized that it works on petites.

White + Warren Cashmere Travel Wrap Scarf - I don't own this scarf, but I love White + Warren's cashmere. I own one of their sweaters (here), hands own the softest cashmere I've ever seen.

Hunter boots - I don't know what I did without these. I have been wearing them non-stop this year due to the extremely wet winter in New England this year. Love the glossy red.

Tory Burch York Buckle tote - the large size is great for toting laptop and accessories. You can't go wrong with the Luggage color. This tote was always excluded in Tory Burch official website promotions, so this would be a good opportunity to pick up if you are looking for something similar. Here's a smaller version if the original size is too big for your need.

House of Harlow 1960 Station Leather Necklace in black. I love this necklace and have worn it a lot. Here.

Rebecca Minkoff Love Cross body bags - I love love love this bag, so much that I have 2 colors. See petrol color on me here.  I also own the all black version which I think is so edgy and cute at the same time. Love it!

I don't use clutch very often, but if you are one of those clutch person, this leopard Clare V. clutch has received tons of love in the blogger community.

If you are in the mood to splurge on a designer clothing item, may I introduce to you the RED Valentino brand. I find their designs to be very modern and unique. At the same time it also doesn't lose its classic element. I love the lace Brocade dress, Leather moto dress, and striped trench coat.

There is also a small list of vintage items on the website including Chanel, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton.

On the already on sale items, this Missoni hat caught my eye. It's already 60% off for $44. Great filler if you need to get to a total price to get higher discount.
Similar items include: Splendid Ombre stripe cardigan, 60% off. Rag & Bone Fleet Leopard top, 60% off, size xxs available.  Vince Metallic textured V neck sweater in xxs. Joie Deron Skirt, 60% off.  BCBG Max Azria Marissa open back dress, 60% off.  Glamorous Houndstooth top only $16.8.

Happy Shopping!

Sale Alert: Rebecca Minkoff 50% off Sale, JCrew 25% off, BBOS, etc

The record setting snow storms, blizzards, and extremely cold temperature have put me into a very weird mood recently.  The twice a week storms are getting on everyone's nerves.  It's an understatement to say that it's been causing tremendous inconveniences. Some of my friends' flights to the warmer climate got cancelled and some of them had to cancel their vacation all together. We are scheduled to fly out of Boston on Wednesday, and it looks like more snow is expected both Tuesday and Wednesday. At this point, we can't do anything but hope for the best. 

Presidents Day Sales are meager.  Not much to write about. Most stores offer some discount on sale or new arrivals. To be honest though there are not much new arrivals that picked my interest. I blame the weather, again.

Here are a few worth mentioning. 

Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag (love it so much that I recently got an all black version in addition to the petrol color I own) in ultraviolet and winter mint 30% off. in hot orange 50% off.  Perry Satchel 33% off. I love the look of this Wes Moto Jacket on the model.  And how cute is this Cece Coat.

J.Crew 25% off order of $125+ with code TODAYONLY.  Free shipping on all orders.  Who has tried on the new Martie pant yet?  

Valentino Rockstud bag in Ruby $1719 (was $2145, only 1 left). Invite here.

BBOS extra 25% off sitewide. Borrow or Buy, with code PRESIDENTS25. Invite here.

Bloomingdale's Big Brown Bag Sale and Loyalist Bonus.  Save 20-60% on select items. The deal on the loyalists program is worth mentioning. Get a $25 Reward Card on almost every $100 you spend on regular-price items within a single order.  If you are planning to buy a classic Burberry trench or scarf that NEVER goes on sale... I mean NEVER!  this is a good opportunity to do so. 
My picks:
** Daylesmoore Coat in Camel (I've seen black on sale, but Camel version, not). It's like taking 25% off. That's really great.
** Burberry London Kensington trench in Honey - very slimming style, hardy gabardine pima cotton.
