Weekend Shopping: Obsessions & Impulses

August 22, 2020 by Lila Delilah

There are only a few more beach weekends left before the unofficial end of Summer. It’s time to put down the White Claw and it’s not a moment too soon because that stuff is actually disgusting– but in the best type of way.

I would love to say that I’m still hunting for ultra reduced bikinis and sandals but it’s not as interesting as it was a few weeks ago. I’m now turning our attention towards transitional items that get me excited for a new fashion season while remembering that it isn’t very likely that we will return to a  going-out lifestyle any time soon.

Shoes seem to have taken the place of the new season IT-bag. Some new seasons standouts include the “Tire Boot” from Bottega Veneta and the oversized chain slide from JW Anderson. Pre-pandemic, Gucci tried relaunching the 1961 Jackie bag but then pulled it back. This season we are looking forward to the re-relaunch. I think the overall trends this season will be skewed towards wild eye-catching items and very classic pieces.

Some notable markdowns of the season include a host of Missoni wraps, ponchos, and pillows. Prices are already reduced to 80% on some items and if you use the code GOCRAZY to save an additional 25% on purchases over $150. These Missoni pillows come to $112 from a retail price of usually $300 and this classic knit poncho is $52 from $350. It’s impossible to say no.

Looking back on the past week, 24S has a tiered promotion that will save you up to 25% off when you spend $500 or more. The details and codes can be found in the original post. We were excited to apply the savings to lots of Moncler and Givenchy items.

This week, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale went public. The designer options aren’t plentiful but we did a great edit or the best pieces over here. Some standouts include Hunter Boots for $99 from $150 and a Tom Ford beauty set for $88.

Farfetch is offering 20% off sale merchandise with the code 20FAR. The problem is nearly everything we want is excluded. You can click over to see a review of how we shopped the sale — or more accurately, didn’t shop the sale.

One of our favorite sales of the week was from Coltori. You can save an extra 25% off sale items with the code DEALMOON25. Some standouts included a pink Mansur Gavriel bucket bag for $350 from $600. This YSL smoking jacket is $1000 from $2250 and here is a double-breasted style. Over this way is a Fendi logo pencil skirt that’s $465 from $1100 US and this Dolce & Gabbana bustier is $330 from $735. 

Intermix is kicking off the new season with lots of great wardrobe building staples. You can click here to see my favorite pieces from the collection. Don’t miss the leather leggings or light knit cropped sweater to help ease you into cooler temperatures.

That’s it for now folks. Until next time… same time, same place?
