Sales and Deals - Week of 7/28/13

Tuesday Update:

J.Crew 40% off Final Sale still on with code STYLE40. Plus today only get free shipping on EVERY order. I'm going to give their new Andie chino a try. It not only comes in 5 different colors, it also comes in petite and tall sizes. I love the color fatigue.

Chloe Marcie Medium Python Satchel at 50% off original price.



Monday Update:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale still going strong. Remember prices go up August 5. If you don't see an item online, you can always call the store for availability. Just make sure you have the item # and name handy. Besides highly recommending the Coach Legacy Archival Rambler Crossbody bag (I got the Cognac color which is sold out currently online),  may I suggest that you try this Blondo boots. I bought last year's version during Nordstrom's anniversary sale and LOVED it. It's stylish, conforms to my short legs and waterproof.
Some new picks -
Burberry Brit Balmoral Trench Coat in Dark Flax

Burberry Medium Check Stamped Bracelet Watch, 34 mm. A male coworker wears a single silver toned one and I just love the look of the etched checks.
Michael Kors 'Parker' Crystal Bezel Ceramic Watch, 39 mm, oversized, white ceramic. Good reviews. For all Michael Kors sale watches, here.

Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Tote, Large (Nordstrom Exclusive). Great travel bag.

Sales and Deals - Week of 7/21/13

I do a lot of online browsing, and occasionally find some good deals and sales that I would love to share with you guys. Some of the onsies and twosies are not worth an individual post. So I sometimes skip posting it. I realized this morning that if I post all the deals and sales for a week in one post, then there would be a one stop shop for you guys.  So I'll be experimenting with a weekly "Sales and Deals" post every Sunday.  All the flash sales and one day sales and such during the week will be added to this one post. All the updates will be dated and added to the top of the post. Please let me know how this works out for you guys so I can adjust. Thanks in advance.

Sunday post:
Nordstrom's anniversary sale is going on strong. This is one of the sales that a lot of people look forward to. I shopped during the early access for card members and picked up a pair of Stuart Weitzman 'Setaside' Boots in my regular size 6. The boots are at least half a size too big. So if you are looking into these boots, size down.  I also ordered the Coach Legacy Archival Rambler Leather Crossbody Bag in Cognac. I love the design and look of this classic style bag from Coach. The leather is supple and smells so good. The bag is functional in that it has multiple pockets and divisions. The bag is lined and the color Cognac is a rich reddish brown. This bag is sitting on my desk now being evaluated as a keeper.  Original price $348, Sale price: $232.9. In my opinion, the value to price ratio is pretty high.


30% off at Old Navy, Gap, and Banana Republic with code EVERYONE.
My picks from Old Navy - Diva denim Shorts (3 1/2") in Plummy Mummy (only $5.60 each after discount), bright white ($5.6), Blue Eye ($6), Apple of my Eye ($10.5)

Old Navy Stuff n Save Sale Ends Tomorrow

Old Navy is having a huge Stuff n Save sale right now online and in-store. Card members get extra 30% off everything and none card members get extra 20% off. Quality of the Old Navy clothing is questionable, but sometimes I can find something that is quite nice. For example this Boucle Cardi Jacket. I saw this jacket in store two months ago and loved it. It retails for $39.94, and I thought it was a pretty good price at the time. This jacket is now on clearance in stores for $14.99. With additional 30% off it will bring the jacket price down to $10.49. I picked up the Black Jack (pictured) and Goodnight Nora (a very pretty blue).
The jacket does run a bit small for Old Navy sizing. Sleeves run tight. You can read the reviews online. However I think it's a bit boxy for petite sized women.  There are some size inconsistencies. The blue jacket is definitely bigger than the black on the same size.

For reference here's the measurement for size XS:
Shoulder to shoulder 13.5", armpit to armpit 18",  jacket length measured from middle back 19", sleeve length 21.5".

The material is 66% Poly, 22% acrylic, 11% rayon, and 1% other.I think the quality of the jacket is fine. The weight is substantial, so it's meant for cooler temperature. The jacket is fully lined.

Another item I want to point out is this Diva Denim Shorts (3 1/2" inseam) in Plummy Mummy (beautiful purple). I tried on size 0 in store (still full price $22.94) and love it. It also runs a bit small for regular ON sizing. Online has petite version, but I don't know if they keep the inseam the same. Online price is $12.50 before the discount, so it's quite a bit of a price difference as well.  I ordered both 2P and 0 and will keep the one that fits me more. Too bad I haven't taken a picture when trying it on, but definitely give it a try if you are looking for cute denim shorts in colors.
