Weekend Shopping: Impulses & Obsessions

March 28, 2020 by Lila Delilah

It’s amazing how much you can do (and how little you can do) when there is no place to go and nobody to see. This long period of “sheltering” had me looking into my closet of gowns. Each one represents a memory from an incredible evening.

With much time on my hands, I slipped on this almost-vintage Matthew Williamson empire-waist dress. In the early 2010s, he was my favorite designer. I stalked his Meatpacking District boutique and took home this find during the presale at 80% off.  I wore it five months later to an AMFAR gala, in LA, and then a few years later to Lifeball, in Vienna. My philosophy with gowns is pretty similar to my take on fashion: Buy things you love and wear them as much as you can.

This week brought us several high-quality sales with items that are loveable and wearable. Moda Operandi is offering 25% off with the code 25OFF.  Despite what the site says, not everything on the site is included. You can use this link to filter out anything that doesn’t come with a discount. I really like these linen Ganni slides that come to $213 from $285,  a Jacqumous Le Chiquito bag is $422 from $585, and these “relaxed leather lounge pants” are $525 from $700.

Bloomingdales is hosting friends and family sale where the discount is 20% off. No designer merchandise is included. A Nespresso machine with a frother comes to just $150 from $475 and an All-Clad bakeware set is $160 from $400. There are lots of great kitchen items to make spending more time at home a little more exciting and to prepare for the Spring holidays. Friends and Family discounts are live through April 12.

Over at Saks, nearly all designers and nearly-designer brands are excluded from the 25% off friends and family discount. I suggest you scroll through the generous loungewear assortment. I’m into these black tie-dye sweatpants from Myrrh that come to $138 from $185 and an Isabel Marant sweatshirt is $198 from $330. The promotion runs through April 4.

Ssense is offering shoppers 20% off nearly everything on the site with the code SHOP20. These Louboutin heels come to $640 from $800 and this Saint Laurent toy size Loulou is $952 from $1190. The promotion ends Sunday. You can read all the sale details in our prior post here.

Italist has dropped prices on a multitude of items.  These Golden Goose sneakers are women’s sizes and are just $250.  A Balmain white blazer is $1377 from $2300 US retail and a Balmain hoodie is $331 from $660.

Shop375 loaded a lot of discounted Gucci items this week and you can use the code MADSPY10 to save an additional 10% off everything on the site.  A classic double-G Gucci belt is $256 from $350 and thong sandals are $315 from $500. Don’t miss the Bottega Veneta items that are newly loaded.. Assorted color woven bracelets are $80 from $420.

Long Island famed Steven Dann is offering discounts of 30% off nearly everything on its website, including sale merchandise that’s already 75% off. Use the code “influencer30” to engage the discount. These  Jimmy Choo pumps are only $150 from $850 and a Jonathan Simkhi shirt dress is $86 from $500. The sale section is definitely worth a look.

So here’s another to another week at home. Make yourself a double and enjoy the scroll and be sure to let me know if there is anything I missed.
