Weekend Shopping: Impulses & Obsessions

April 12, 2020 by Lila Delilah

In our fifth episode of quarantine weekend shopping, I learned about the highly competitive sport of scoring a Fresh Direct timeslot. For others, Citarella has become the beacon of refuge from an apartment full of stir-crazy family.

Those looking to escape the madness in a real live shopping spree can point their clicker at Ssense, who again took a rollback on some Gucci prices. Here is a double-G Gucci belt that’s priced at $325 from $460, a Gucci camera bag is $890 from $1200 and sandals are $345 from $490.

Not all Gucci items have been adjusted but enough to make it an interesting browse. We price checked most items and compiled an assortment in the pictures above that is worth your attention. Last time Ssense modified prices they were reverted back to normal and later switched to these items. We suggest you don’t hesitate if there’s been an item you’ve been eyeing.

Intermix extended its flash sale and added some excellent merchandise, including lots of Manolo Blahnik shoes,  reduced 40% off. These Blahnik Manolo Blahnik Martamod crystal slides are $570 from $945. Blaze Milano blazers have become a new obsession. This cream-colored style is $1170 from $1940. Some more affordable Summer options include this maxi dress from My Beachy Side that’s $240 from $398 and a Melissa Odabash kaftan that’s $261 from $435. Click here to read the full blog post.

Those looking to spruce up their beauty regiment should check out the Marc Jacobs beauty that’s currently 50% off at Neiman Marcus. My favorite item from the collection is the Fineliner Ultra-Skinny Gel eye crayon that’s now just $12.50 from $25. I always have two or three in back stock because it sells out from time to time. This liquid foundation brush is $24 from $48 and this popular Coconut Complexion set is $50 from $100 and comes with a variety of useful items.

Bergdorf Goodman is still offering an extra 25% off sale merchandise. The Row leather leggings are $390 from $2100. This is a prime collection piece that’s priced less than the sample sale if you were to ever find them there. There are also some Row men’s items, which have never been seen at a sample sale. You can also find a selection of Dior sunglasses reduced 60% off.

Saks extended its friends and family sale and increased the discount to 30%.  Beauty is 15% off. Palm Angels track pants are $325 from $465, Chloe espadrille wedges are $390 from $650 and a Free City sweatshirt is $220 from $315.

We just got an alert that Gilt reduced the prices on various Dior items. Who can’t use some friend love? Friendship bracelets are now $299 from $420, J’Adior slingbacks are $700 from $900, and pumps are $600 from $950.

Coming up this week we suggest you keep an eye on Shopbop. The site has been adding lots of sale items and the discounts will start to get interesting especially on the most in-demand loungewear categories.

Here’s to another weekend at home. I wish you a week full of lots of exciting fresh deliveries.  Cheers. Same time, same place next week?
