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.

Sale Alerts: Amazon Shoe/Handbag Sale, Burberry Kids, Nordstrom Sale and Ann Taylor Stackable Sale

Amazon 20% Off Shoes and Handbags, code 20SPRSHOES.  Items must be sold and shipped by to be eligible. If you missed the chance to get the Rebecca Minkoff Love Cross Body bag, you don't want to miss it again. $240 is a great price for this bag. Stylish and functional. See the petro color on me.  Classic Black here, and classic Beige here.
Cute Burberry English Floral-print silk dress for girls 50% off. now $125. size 14 available. From the size guide, it can fit young women up to 5 feet tall and 100 lbs. Twenty somethings can take note. :) Dropped waist, but can be belted to show waist line.

Burberry Bridle House Check Ziggy Zip Wallet 30% off now $346.5
Burberry London Giant Icon Check Cashmere Scarf in 3 colors 25% off, now $325. I like the pewter.
Saturday's original Post

Nordstrom's highly rated BP 'Transit' Tall Boot is now $55.97 (60% off original price). Colors and sizes get replenished every day, so if you can't find your size (make sure to size up 1/2 size) check back often. I ordered a black and due to the blizzard in the east coast, haven't received them yet. I do expect them to fit nicely though. See them on Jean here and on Annie here.
Bobeau one-button fleece wrap cardigan in rainbow of colors on sale for $39.90. This sale price is not new and has been there for many months. I purchased mink color a few months ago and loved it. It's very warm and cozy. (On Jean here.) The Heather wild ruby color is on further reduction though to $19.90 which I think is a steal.
Original Tonal Rain Boot (kids) in bright coral (on sale for $45) - I highly recommend these Hunter boots. I am an adult size 6 and I went with size 4M. Fits perfectly. If you are not petite like me, and need a higher shaft version, the women's sizes in burgundy color is on sale for 33% off here.
Burberry coats on sale here. 20% off is not the best I've seen on Burberry sales, but it's decent. Sizes are selective already, but they do pop up. I really like the camel version of the Daylesmoore coat but it only has black left.
Ann Taylor extra 50% off sale styles. No code needed. If you are an Ann Taylor or Loft card holder, you can use code BENEFITS15 to get $50 off $150 purchase or more. This code is stackable with the sale.  I have done a mock check out on sale items and it does work. 
My picks:
Textured Flounce Skirt in Sapphire Blue. The skirt is prettier in person than on the stock photo. The texture and color are beautiful. Fits tts.
Cheetah Coat. I haven't received mine yet, but given the almost perfect score reviews I'm very hopeful that it'll work.
Oversized Shirt in classic colors. I don't have these shirts but am really tempted to order, seeing how much Katherine loves it.

List of items that didn't work for me
Elsie fabric Pumps (highly rated, but just doesn't fit my feet) I ordered a 6.5 originally, sized up 1/2 size from my normal shoe size which is what I do on J.crew shoes always, but they are too big. I then tried a size 6, fits fine but the shoes caused a lot of rubbing on the Thalmus, and it makes a squeaky noice when I'm walking. Sigh. The shoes are so cute that I would be heartbroken to return them but I don't seem to be able to wear them. So sad.
