AJ Wears :: A Suede Coat

When I bought this coat in Dallas this weekend, I guess I forgot that I'd recently bought a camel blazer. And when I put together this outfit, I guess I also forgot that I basically wore said camel blazer with this same shirt. And boots. If anything, this will dispel any rumors that I never wear anything more than once.

Coat, H&M (exact).
Turtleneck, Abercrobmie & Fitch (exact, on sale!).
Jeans, Hudson Barbara Fit (exact).
Booties, JustFab (similar from 6PM).
Bag, Balenciaga (similar at Macy's).

And by the way...it's the most wonderful sale of the year!

That's right, Shopbop's buy more, save more sale is here, the infamous sale that I used to buy my Alexander Wang Rocco for hundreds below the original price. Spend $250+, get 15% off. Spend $500+, you'll get 20%. And orders over $1000 are 25% off! You may want to check your math if you're close to the next tier, because I basically got a ring for free by adding it to my bag and bumping up to the 25% off. I mostly use these sales to purchase higher-stake items like boots or bags, so here's what I'm thinking of splurging on this time around:

1. Joie Barlow Booties: I've loved this simple style for a few years - I even have a similar pair in faux suede. This sale is the perfect time to pull the trigger on the upgrade, which drops them down to under $300.

2. The Alexander Wang Mini Rockie: When I saw this bag in person, I almost died it was so cute! I never felt that the Rockie was that much smaller than the Rocco, in fact, I found it kind of an odd size. The Mini is a perfect tiny bag and would be only $476 with the 20% off.

3. A Salvatore Splurge: If you've been eyeing any designer bags on Shopbop, this is a good sale to consider since there aren't brand restrictions. That 25% discount on $1000+ can add up to a lot of saved dough! As always, I recommend buying something classic you can carry for years when you buy expensive pieces, so Ferragamo is always a good choice for timeless pieces.
