Weekend Shopping: Obsessions & Impulses

January 30, 2021 by Lila Delilah

This week, everyone is buzzing about a huge Feb 1 Dior price hike. No prices have been confirmed but I’ve seen rumors quoting increases north of 30%.  Don’t fall for the Reddit quality hype. My sources say that basic Dior Book Totes are increasing about $100 and more fancy style bags are going up more but, again, nothing has been confirmed.

The increase shouldn’t influence your shopping drastically. If you were already spending $5000 on a bag, $300 is less than the sales tax. If the purchase was imminent, why not sooner rather than later?

Keeping a closer eye on sales, the Italian store Giglio took another markdown and is offering an additional 20% off with the code 20MORE. That brings the total savings to about 60% off. Some highlights include this Prada puffer that’s $1120 from $2800, Marsell boots are $400 from $995, and a Vivian Westwood wallet is $57 from $142. 

Net-A-Porter is offering 15% off an edit of new season merchandise. You can use this link to see what’s available. This Nili Lotan oversized turtleneck is included in the promotion along with this new style Loewe sunglasses

Yoox is hosting a sale where lots of merchandise is mega reduced. We are talking discounts up to 75% off.  There is so much that you can keep yourself occupied scrolling all night. There are six pages of Gucci items alone. Here is a Gucci scarf for $160 from about $375 and this Prada skirt is $355 from a lot more than what’s quoted. I’m jumping out of this one before I get lost and financially drained. The sale ends Saturday night. 

Earlier this week, we scored big from the Stuart Weizman outlet sale. Most shoes are discounted 70% off and there are lots of great styles available in all sizes. These stretch suede ankle boots are $175 from $575, knee-high suede boots are $218 from $725, these leather ankle boots with a zipper are $165 from $550, and these boots with a stretch backare $299 from $750. You can click here to see the full post and more of our favorite sals styles. 

We also pulled a selection of sales shoes that were all priced in the $300-range or less. You can see all of the picks here.  Some standouts include Roger Vivier pumps for $391 from $1450 and Balenciaga Bow sandals for $358 from $690. 

You can use this link to access MyTheresa’s extra 20% off selection. You can only access the assortment through this link. The additional discount promotion brings most items to 50% to 65% off and the selection is really pretty good. This Loewe horseshoe bag is $1090 from $1950 and Valentino Birkenstocks are $250 from $520. More goodies are this way

As sale season comes to an end I suggest you keep an eye on Ssense. There are still lots of great finds. This Rick Owens bubble puffer feels like a cloud and is $885 from $2270 and this Isabel Marant sweatshirt is $133 from $295. Click-click for more sale picks-picks

At the beginning of the week, we offered a few ideas for gifts you can give yourself I love this PJ Salvage pajama top ($62) and pants ($62) with hearts all over. Nordstrom also has an excellent selection from Kim Kardashian’s famed line, Skims. I couldn’t help but feed my curiosity with a pair of Shims sleep ribbed boxers ($36) and a Skims Logo-Tee ($52). You can see more here

Is scrolling through thousands of product pages driving you crazy? I suggest you try out my new desktop shopping extension, Haute Pursuit. After downloading, you can click on the Haute Pursuit icon and use the search feature to scan thousands of sites for exactly what you’re looking for. It will also offer suggestions while your shopping if the item is found for less money. You can check out more here

Ok kids. That’s all for now. Next week? Same time, same place?
