Weekend Shopping: Impulses & Obsessions

April 24, 2021 by Lila Delilah

This week I had an impulse to buy a gown. I don’t have any place to wear it but I have the strongest desire not only to dress up but to fully gala. With no exaggeration, I spent at least 10 hours scrolling through dresses

The exercise was quite useful. I confirmed that most formal gowns are horrendously ugly. I also found myself gravitating to the same designers that I have always loved. As a matter of fact, any dress I’ve ever wanted I already own or considered buy and would be happy if I did. If you hit the jump I posted pictures of dresses that haunt my dress-up dreams. Some of my current favorites are Toni Maticevski, Brandon Maxwell, Alexandre Vauthier, Mohammed Ashi (Ashi Studio), and Delpozo. Of course, there’s lots of vintage inspiration too.

Now, I just need to figure out is where to wear this said gown. Will it be La Grenouille, Le Bernardin, Indochine or Mansion Diner?

Moving on to this week’s sales, I must admit to possibly overindulging. I leaped when I notice that the exact color of the exact Bottega bag I wanted was about 30% off what it costs locally. As a matter of fact, TheDoubleF has lots of new season designer items priced lower than in the US and you can save an additional 10% off with the code WELCOME10. This mini Jodie in aqua is a find at $1300 from $1800 US. You can click here to see all of our favorite finds

I also found lots of temptation at MadaLuxe VaultGolden Goose sneakers are discounted 25% off, some hot Balenciaga bags discounted 30%, and Alexandre Birman shoe styles are reduced up to 70% off. The sunglass selection is spectacular. Nearly all Gucci sunglasses are reduced priced at $129 and $189. Bottega Veneta sunnies are $129 and they come with a great woven carrying pouch. Click here to see all of our top hits.
Ssense started a promotion where you can save 15% off with the code SHOP15. The situation is such that there are so many exclusions that it’s almost difficult to find qualifying items. You can see all the exclusions and the best buys here. We are partial towards the new Chloe Kiss bag, which is included in the promotion. Is there a limit as to how many bags one person should buy in a week? I’m asking for a friend. 
Most of us don’t need reminding but Mother’s Day is May 9. We put together a gift compilation. We hope that you find it helpful. 
It’s also notable that sale season is just around the corner. I highly recommend you download Haute Pursuit to your desktop if you already haven’t. It’s a great way to assure that items aren’t discounted anywhere for less. There are no codes or extra searches. The feature scans the web automatically while you’re shopping.

Stay tuned. Until next time… same time, same place?
