Weekend Shopping: Obsessions & Impulses

February 27, 2021 by Lila Delilah

This past year was undoubtedly historic. For the first time since WWII, the entire world shared a similar experience. In relation to fashion, there was a seismic shift. Even avid shoppers questioned and deliberated over every purchase regardless of the price tag. 

We questioned how any new purchase would be used. When it would be used. Where it would be used. Even today, I must admit to having an abundance of unworn purchases. As we begin to think about how fashion will evolve post-Covid it’s important to remember how our clothes reflect our mood and creativity.

As we move from lockdown to freedom I can clearly see a world where people seek to celebrate and share. In terms of fashion through 2022, that may translate to a surge of consumption, decadence, and show-off culture. We have already started to see the beginnings of this trend as the art world and high-end jewelry and watch values have skyrocketed. Clearly, there is no ceiling on Chanel prices. 

As society opens we should focus our buying power on items that enhance our lives. Items that have longevity and reflect our individuality. They should have meaning and give meaning to our daily existence. That doesn’t mean we need to pay full price.
This week, Saks Fifth Avenue started a promotion where you can save $400 of your purchase with the code SHHB21SF. Some of the best values include this Saint LaurentMedium Matelassé Leather Wallet-On-Chain that comes to $1150 from $1550 or Manolo Blahnik Lurum heels come to $1000 from $1300.
Bergdorf Goodman is offering an extra 30% off sale. The best selection is the athletic clothing. These Ultracore leggings with roses are $98 from $188 and Monrow sweatpants are $76 from $146. Generally, the pickings are slim but we did find these Gianvitto Rossi low suede heels are $295 from $84 and this fringe suede jacket from Dan Cassab for $490 from $1400. 
The biggest sale of the week was undoubtedly J Brand. Almost the entire inventory is discounted up to 90% off. this Highrise Slim Straight comes to $68 from $288, these leather joggers come to only $119 from nearly $1000, and here are Highrise Boot Cut Leather pants for $89 from nearly $1000. You can see more of our top sales picks in this post

We were subsequently told that going forward, J Brand will only be sold directly to consumers and at Theory = and Uniqlo stores. J Brand is currently owned by Fast Retailing, which operates Uniqlo, Comptoir des Cotonniers, GU, Princesse Tam-Tam, and Theory.

If you are shopping for any outerwear or ski gear you’re not going to want to miss this post. Both MyTheresa and MatchesFashion are offering discounts up to 50% off. There are lots of great options from Bogner, Perfect Moment, Goldbergh, Holden, and more

If you’re getting ready for a post-Covid Spring, you should head over to Nugnes 1920 where you can save 15% off new collection merchandise with the code WELCOME15The site has a great selection of GucciBottega VenetaPrada and YSL for which you can apply the discount code. The savings don’t always seem huge but when some items are compared to US retail the difference can be a good first markdown.

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