For the past several weeks I’ve had a lot of fun staging fantastical photoshoots from my closet of old gowns. Between home school, cooking, cleaning, and work, I am completely worn out and couldn’t muster the energy to strike a pose. Instead, I’m throwing it back to my first photoshoot I did in honor of April Fools. (Ironically, the dress is also Matthew Williamson.)
The highlight of my week was receiving gifts I sent to myself. I always love to add gift wrapping and a note to my online purchases. (Am I the only one?) Looking back on the last seven days, we saw an array of site-wide sales. Despite the apparent industry panic, retailers have been very controlled in maintaining the prices of luxury designer merchandise.
I anticipate that a lot more designer sales as we near the timing of natural markdown season. Most recently, Farfetch’s conglomerate of boutiques has started reducing some designer merchandise. This red Balmain blazer, which seems to transcend season, is $1434 from $2300 US retail. This Balmain tank is $195 from $395 US Retail. This Givenchy ID39 bag is a fresh style that’s piquing my interest at $1600 from $2150 and this Givenchy Eden is $1425 from $2850.
This week we also uncovered some great Gucci finds. Over at Kirna Zibete we spotted a small assortment of Gucci classics discounted 50% off. A small belt bag is $475 from $790, Gucci loafers with a crystal G are $490 from $980, and open-toe heels are $295 from $590. SSense has a Supreme Ophidia clutch for $345 from $490 and Brixton loafers for $545 from $790. You can click here to see all the Ssense Gucci finds.
Bergdorf Goodman is hosting a promotion where discounted merchandise is an extra 25% off. Click here to see my favorite sale items. The Saks friends and family sale was extended a week and I took an immediate liking to this multi-color pastel LoveShackFancy dress is about $300 from $400 and this Staud puff sleeve dress that’s $180 from $245. The full story on the Saks F&F is here.
