With Hanukkah so early this year I’ve been doing holiday shopping since November! This week and next week are my biggest Christmas gift-shopping weeks and retailers are helping me out with some seriously great deals. One promo that I’m very excited to shop is the Amazon December 2018 Fashion Day of Deals, which just so happens to be happening today only! We’ll get to the shoe spread above further down in this post but first let’s review some of the other deals happening on Amazon today.
J. Crew is back on my radar in a big way! I have an OOTD coming up with some of my retail favorites. J. Crew also runs a brand called Mercantile, which focuses on less expensive items that don’t sacrifice quality. Several months ago Amazon started carrying Mercantile which delights me because I get all the perks of an Amazon Prime account (not a Prime member? Get 30 days free.), like free 2-day shipping, and the ability to try some items before I buy them through Prime Wardrobe. Today during the Amazon December 2018 Fashion Day of Deals you can take 50% off select J. Crew Mercantile items.
I love this Sleeveless Knit Dress ($20, all prices today only, seen above) and would layer this lovely Merino Cardigan ($28) or this longer, highly-rated cardigan (above) over it along with this divine Quilted Field Jacket ($55, also above) that I already own.
One of my dearest friends is a Mom to three young children. She’s always asking me for fashion advice and help finding items that look super cute but can take the wear and tear of active kids. So for her Christmas present I’m getting her several J. Crew Mercantile items from this promotion.
I’m going to choose from (Blair if you’re reading this close the post now!!) this adorable Polka Dot Crewneck Sweater ($30) that can be layered over a cute striped top easily, the Chunky Knit Turtleneck Sweater ($55) that will keep her warm and chic when she’s out and about and an Oversized Cardigan ($30) that will quickly add polish to any outfit when belted. I know she’d also love this Stars Crewneck Sweater ($30) but unfortunately it’s already nearly sold out! This Bell Sleeve Sweater ($30) is tempting me.
Items in these deals tend to go fast. I’ve assembled a shopping list of more J. Crew Mercantile deals in the Amazon December 2018 Fashion Day of Deals complete with photos and pricing. How cute is this Scalloped Cami ($23) for instance?? I have men’s picks in there too!
There are more great deals on clothing today only on Amazon including 50% off select Levi’s and Dockers styles. If you don’t own these blogger-favorite jeans yet for instance, you can grab them today for $30! There’s also a wide selection of dresses and tops under $50, like this pretty striped sweater dress (above) that is under $50 today only.
You can tell which items are included in this promo because they have lower prices than normal — a sweater that’s normally $90 will be half that for instance. To see for sure, pick the color and size you want and you’ll see a countdown clock just below the price. I have given them feedback that in the future an even clearer banner on included items would be so helpful! Amazon is still learning its way through the fashion game and is committed to delivering the experience we want.
My favorite deal in the Amazon December 2018 Fashion Day of Deals? It has to be the humongous 30% off select shoes and handbags deal! From Winter boots to designer handbags and much more, this promotion is helping me check a bunch of people off my holiday shopping list while grabbing a few things for myself too.
I realize it can be overwhelming to try to shop such a huge selection so here are a few tips:
- Filter down to just the gender, brands and if applicable, sizes you’re looking for
- Set price limits on the left sidebar of Amazon’s page
- Use the left sidebar to choose items that have a 4-star or better rating so you know you’re getting good items
I of course have many favorites to choose from!All are shown in the photo above. In the handbag promo I’ve been looking for a small leopard crossbody and was delighted to score the Rose Small Crossbody ($68)! I also really like this quilted crossbody and this one in a smaller form factor. This Siny Satchel ($132) is just what one of my family members has been asking. The red 4 Zip Moto Camera Bag ($86) is a great way to add a pop of color to any neutral outfit.
How pretty and functional is this pink crossbody satchel? I’m in love! I love the print on this Solid Convertible Crossbody Bag ($63). And big-time yes to this buttery Zip Leather Hobo Handbag ($279) — a steal for Frye! Finally, I’m drooling over this equestrian-inspired Ilana Saddle Crossbody ($213) which is an even better deal in the lasercut version.
I have plenty of bag picks assembled in this list from the Amazon December 2018 Fashion Day of Deals! Also, I have a list of my shoe picks too! It includes every shoe in the graphic at the top of this post.
TOP ROW: The Devon Ankle Boot ($66) is a great way to do leopard! The Adalan ($43) meanwhile is a very city chic shoe that just so happens to be comfortable.
SECOND ROW: The textured Taye Ankle Bootie ($53) is just what the shoe doctor ordered.
THIRD ROW: Dr Martens for under $100? Yes please!
FOURTH ROW: There are so many great Winter boot deals, like from Sorel! I love the classic 1964 Premium CVS Mid Calf Boot ($81), the very on-trend Glacy Explorer Shortie Snow Boot ($83) and the very snow-ready Winter Carnival Snow Boot ($80).
FIFTH ROW: If you’re in the market for flats, the Rodney Ballet Flat starts at $30 today only!
SIXTH ROW: Despite the high heel, the Hazel Pump ($44) is almost as comfy as wearing flats. No really.
SNEAKER ROWS: I love comfy and supportive workout shoes like the Nike Trainer 7 Cross ($36)
or New Balance’s 574v2 Sneaker which start at a crazy $16 today. It’s also nice to see fashion sneakers like Adidas’s Superstar ($30).
