Tomorrow is the last day to get up to 25% off at Shopbop with code BIGEVENT15. Every year I try (but mostly fail, until this year) to use these “big” coupon codes to stock up on spring and fall items. This year, I couldn’t wait any longer to buy what I wanted (with credits I earn each month from Shopbop, and saved up over several months), and ordered last week, but Shopbop is really good about adjusting orders if they’re placed within a certain time period, so even though I placed my order before the code started, they still gave me the discount. Great customer service, no? And then I placed another order this week with my remaining credits for the James Perse fleece cardigan + a pair of thongs (to get it up to $250 so I could get the discount), so I’m good on shopping/buying for quite some time.
Anyway, I’m way more excited about wearing what I already have in my closet as the weather warms up than I am about buying new things. BUT. There are always things I’m tempted by, and that I have on my radar to try, and this spring/summer I MIGHT finally try some white jeans. Maybe. And if I did, I think they might be the ones I posted by Genetic. I love that they’re high-rise AND cropped AND distressed, which is pretty much what I want in white denim. I definitely don’t want skinny or too pristine looking (do you watch Togetherness on HBO? Remember Amanda Peet’s all white outfit in the last episode? uh…no.).
And even though I did have a jumpsuit two summers ago and it’s long since gone, I still like the IDEA of one, especially if it’s black, slouchy, AND made in the US, like the Sundry one above. Practicality aside, I think they look cool, and chic, and I can imagine myself wearing one at home, and/or out, with a cardigan on top.
Since I’ve already got my long cardigan, I’m good on that front, but they’re ALL over the place for spring, and this one by Three Dots is really great, made in the US, and about $100 less than the James Perse version. Good, no?
And finally, remember the white draped James Perse top I tried and returned last year? I sort of wish I’d re-ordered it when it went on sale, but didn’t. Every once in a while I do wish I had a more “fancy” top, and I always loved the draped v-neck on that one. Well, this one by Lanston is nearly identical, and less than $100. Score. And I love Lanston, I have a couple of dresses and as long as you don’t dry them, they hold up wonderfully.
Here are lots more of my favorite made in the US items at Shopbop – including some great denim – for you to splurge on this weekend if you’re so inclined. Let me know if you’ve bought anything!!
