Normally I try to keep a very level head during store promotions. No, there is no clothing that I need at this point. It’s all about wants and balancing my endless desires with the discipline to stay on-budget and not get sucked in by a sale that’s all too good for me to stay level-headed.
Today, however. Oh, today! It might be one of those days when I throw caution to the wind because: 1 | it’s my birthday month and 2 | there are a bunch of damn fine promotions happening this weekend. So Free People, how you doin’? ????
Free People started a tempting habit a few months ago of offering 50% off select items for Friday only. This weekend is no exception. Sometimes the items offered are great and sometimes they’re meh or not tempting at all. Today’s 50% off Flash Sale at Free People? It’s exquisite. It’s making me overuse italics!!
The items included today are delightful and I’m having trouble whittling down my shopping cart! A Hanukkah gift card is helping somewhat. Among the highlights for me are the Laguna Thermal (now $34), which I take a medium in and love to layer (the grey under the white usually), the Lofty V-Neck Sweater (now $64) which is oversized yet oh so warm and cozy, gorgeous coats like the Structured Puff Sleeve Blazer (now $74) or the Cinched Waist Linen Blazer (now $49, ahhh that green!!) or the Oversized Denim Moto Jacket (now $84). And that’s before I mention drool-worthy shoes like the Peaks Point Wedge (now $69) or the Wild Fields Western Boots (now $99). Or the cardigans!
Maybe it’s just best if you check out all my picks below and adore them yourself! (NOTE: prices below are before the 50% off discount, which applies at checkout. No code required.)
The next great deal is happening at
my precious — err, Madewell. Right now you can take 20% off your purchase of $100+ or 30% off your $200+ purchase. Madewell seems highly motivated to grab some of your Christmas gift card money or Winter blahs spending money! I’m feeling inspired by their latest edition of Looks We Love, which features items like the Reconstructed Jean Jacket ($148 + up to 30% off) and the Reconstructed Midi Jean Skirt ($98 + up to 30% off) in three different stylish outfits. Many other new items caught my eye like the Drawstring Peasant Dress in Kaleidoscope Print ($158 + up to 30% off, also in a peasant shirt) and the Button-Back Tie Tee in Buffalo Check ($62 + up to 30% off). You’ll find Madewell classics included in the promo like the wear-with-anything Surplus Jacket ($118 + up to 30% off).
If you don’t mind all the exclusions of this promo — cashmere, denim pants, leather items to name a few — it’s a great deal on both full price and sale goodies. Use the code STAYCOZY. (Also, when did bodysuits become a thing again? I’m having serious flashbacks to 1993 and it does not feel good.)
My picks? You got ’em, just below.
Another fantastic promo is happening at LOFT, where right now you can take 40% off full price styles with the code FRESH and an extra 50% off sale styles (no code required)! You know what I really love picking up at LOFT? Pants and jeans. They offer curve-friendly cuts and they are great about interpreting trends for less money yet the same quality. For instance, the Modern Fresh Cut Skinny Jeans in Ombre Side Stripe ($80 + 40% off) are a great take on a luxury jean trend that often retails for over $200. In my opinion, the LOFT version fits so much better! Another LOFT pant I wouldn’t want to live without are their cords, which come in a modern cut, a curvy cut, and even a legging (that are so velvety soft, like fine wale corduroy).
LOFT has tons of great stuff right now. It was hard to cut it down to my 40 favorites for this 40% off promo. Here they are:
Also this weekend, it might just be the final weekend of Anthropologie’s Tag Sale and extra 40% off sale; they are also doing a home offer right now detailed in this post. Sundance’s extra 40% off outlet special is also still running as of this morning!
What promotions will you be shopping this weekend?
