For the past few months, I’ve been shopping with one eye open for a classic striped tee. One that was fitted yet comfy for both work and casual wear. Last weekend at the Ann Taylor concept store opening in Chestnut Hill, MA – I lucked out and found a great one. It’s an XSP, but 100% cotton should shrink.
Aren’t these wedges fun? I missed out on those Cynthia Vincent for Target shoes, so I jumped on these. The wedge heel is actually very light and comfortable. I wore them for several hours running errands and shopping indoors, but changed into flats later on for roaming the city with one of my fave bloggers (more on that tomorrow). I can’t find these in yellow online, but here is the Chocolate, Black, and Cognac version. I inspected all three colors in-person; out of those I think Chocolate looks the best in real life. Right now, you get 20% off of these online with orders of $75 or more.
In other news, I was at Bloomingdales’ private sale (ends tomorrow, Thursday) and made a joyful discovery. Some longtime readers may know that I’ve been on the quest for a classic, double-breasted Burberry trench. One of their most classic trench options is called the “Harbourne,” which allegedly is always available, but never on sale.
On a whim, I scanned a trench yesterday and it was a whopping 40% off. Still pricey at $585, but it was something that I would’ve eventually paid full price for. The SA kept on insisting it wouldn’t be on sale, and her jaw dropped when the price came up. Both black and stone are 40% off until tomorrow only (but the sale is unmarked), so if you’re interested, check your local store or call and ask for it to be shipped to your home (I had shipping fees waived).
I am modeling one size up (US 4) but ordered a US 2. See the stone-colored Harbourne on Kelly here. Notice that Burberry hasn’t upped the retail price on this since 2008, unlike the monsters at Chanel! And for anyone who cares, I noticed these are made in England again and not Hong Kong – they must’ve had too many complaints about those and re-opened up their England factories.
