Sale Alert: Banana Republic 50% and 40% off Sale

Banana Republic is having an awesome sale right now. Selective items 50% off and rest 40% off with code BRSHOPNOW.

I highly recommend this marled moto jacket. I purchased this a couple of months and kept it with only 30% off. 00P fits me very nicely and it looks sharp over a white shirt. Too bad I didn't get a chance to take pictures of it on me.  At 50% off I think it's worth a try. Free shipping always for $50+.

I also really like this faux-leather trim sleeveless blouse in Cranberry sauce.
Of course, don't forget the Sloan ankle pants.

Scalloped and Quilted

** Don't miss the Ann Taylor Sweater Sale - 50% off and additional 25 off, stackable. Ends tonight.

A quick Thursday post on a weekend outfit. I pulled out this bright yellow Ann Taylor top and layered a more subdued navy quilted vest from Talbots, letting the scalloped hem to peek out from the bottom.  Very happy with the effect! Skinny jeans and tall boots, we are ready to go ... anywhere ... ok, maybe not hiking.

The foliage of this fall is incredible in New England. I didn't have to drive far to go leaf peeping. My daily commute route provided enough breathtaking scenery for me.  This burning bush is right outside of my house. I still remember getting it home 10 years ago when it was a mere 2 feet tall plant. Look at it now!

What I have put in my shopping bag:
-- Cashmere pants (what a great idea for lounging!)
-- Marled shirttail hem sweater

I also recommend the Ann cardigan. I got the pine color a few weeks ago and loves it. It washes very well, and keeps its shape and color. Highly recommend. I did size up to xsp so I could wear it over a dress shirt. The material is very stretchy so it's forgiving. The pine color has since sold out, but there are still tons of other colors to choose from. I love the dusty wedgewood heather in person.

Happy shopping!

PS. The Loft sale has been extended till end of day today. If you missed out yesterday, here's your chance. :)

J.Crew factory is having an awesome flash sale that allows extra 30% off AND free shipping on already up to 50% items, plus free shipping. Code LEAVES.

I've been eyeing this toggle coat in warm almond, but don't know how the material is and the thickness of the coat. I also don't know in general how the fit is compared to their regular store. If you have tried on this coat please let me know. The coat comes in petite sizes as well which is a plus. After the discount, the coat is only $90 (compared to $258).

My other picks:

- factory intarsia cat sweater (so cute!)

Happy Monday! And happy shopping!

Fall Must Have: Quilted Jacket

If you are looking for a light weight quilted jacket in good quality and reasonable price, you are going to like this Zara one I'm about to introduce to you. I tried a size S in store a few months ago and loved the look and the fit on me. The quality was phenomenal even at the price point at the time ($99 sticker). I ordered an xs immediately from online and couldn't be happier with what I got. The golden hardware was very substantial and well made and the hood was removable (attached via a zipper and snaps). It became my go-to jacket in the fall when the weather started to turn chilly.  Later by coincidence I found out that the online price has been adjusted to $59.99. It didn't show a sale price, but simply adjusted. I was a bit surprised by that. When I took the jacket to the store, they were able to adjust it to the new low price. At $59.99 I think this jacket is a steal. Consider that it's only 10% of this similar Burberry version.

The jacket comes in two colors - Toffee and Navy. It has two usable pockets and a removable hood which is very useful in rainy weather. Since it's nylon, it slips on and off easily, which I really appreciate. It's not a heavy weight jacket, but I can layer underneath and use it into late fall.

J.Crew cardigan (old)
no name silk scarf

Sale Alert: Kate Spade Friends and Family Sale - 30% off All Purchase

Kate Spade is running a F&F sale. All purchases 30% off including sale items. code F14FFUS.

Having owned the Cedar Street Maise for a few months, I can vouch for its style and easy of use. I reach for it whenever I need a cute purse but also need some room for more than just a wallet, a phone, and a small cosmetic bag.  It holds a lot, but still look very cute on a small frame.  It comes with 9 colors. Wow! Certainly full of options. Check it out when the price is so good!

It's also a good time to browse their jewelry section. I have collected a few pieces from them over the years. I have to report that the quality of their jewelry is solid. The gold plate has never tarnished. The pieces hold their original state and shine over the years. There are some really cute pieces. I'm sure you will find one that speaks to you and fits your personal style.

I personally do not own any shoes from this brand, but have enjoyed the Licorice pumps on other bloggers. I love this leopard version.

This sale ends Sunday, October 19th. Happy shopping!
