There is lots on sale right now, as retailers clear stocks to make room for Spring and Summer collections. Size assortments are quite picked over at this point, which is the downside of sale shopping. But if you relax into it, it’s worth browsing end-of-season sales in case you find something you need or like in your size. Remember that there will always be another sale, and another killer item. Don’t let the sales boss you around.
Here are some good items, most of which are on sale. Be sure to browse the colour and size options.
1. Elie Tahari Items
Elie Tahari is an Israeli designer headquartered in New York City. It’s one of the brands on my list. I don’t have any of their items in my wardrobe at the moment, but loved items from the designer in the past. They are generally clean, crisp, luxe, dressy, tailored, beautifully made, and fairly classic. Sizes run from a US0 to US16, which is disappointing. I wish the brand was more size-inclusive, and hope for this in the future. Prices are on the high side, but great when on sale. Some of the items below are discounted.
2. Hobbs Westbourne Bag
This item is not on sale, but deserves an honourable mention. I got the light blue for Christmas and it’s STUNNING. It’s a saddle bag, which works with my sentimental horsey wardrobe capsule. It’s light blue, which is my colour of the year. It’s also a style goal to add light blue wardrobe items to my wardrobe.
Most importantly, the bag is beautifully made, very lightweight, practical, and not bulky. The canvas strap is genius. It’s super comfy and adds a casual and hip touch to a classic and dressy bag. The blue is a little darker in person, which disappointed me at first, but I loved it after precisely ten seconds.
3. Sam Edelman Genia Wedge Chelsea Bootie
Generally, Sam Edelman’s on-trend lug-soled boots with a ‘90s flavour have been exceptional this season, and these are no exception. Lightweight, comfy, chunky yet sleek, and flattering. These have a back zipper despite the heavy duty elastic inserts. The length is especially fab for cropped pants and midi skirts and dresses. The brown is rich and yummy.
4. Designer Wear at the Rack
Lots of designer items from Nordstrom end up at The Rack at some point. If this is your thing, it’s worth browsing the site regularly because absolutely gorgeous items can go for a song. Sizes and colours sell out fast, so it’s best to keep your expectations low. But the more often you browse, the higher the chances of finding treasures at a bargain. I’ve had my fair bit of luck at The Rack, so I’m reinforced to regularly check the site. Here are some items to whet your appetite.
