First, in case you don’t visit Already Pretty regularly, Sally featured my Minimal Closet series today! Please check it out. I have been so humbled and grateful for all the attention my minimal journey has received since I started. First, the WSJ, now this…Wow. Just knowing that my words have had an impact, and have maybe helped – just a little – take the edge off coping with an overflowing closet and emotional shopping makes me so happy and grateful that I can do this everyday.
Thank you Sally, and a million times, thank you to all of you, who come here to read what I have to say everyday. I cannot express my gratitude enough.
Now. On to the Sales. I won’t talk too much about them here, posting mostly over at Grechen’s Codes, but there are a few things I want to mention here.
First, drop everything and get over to the Emerson Fry outlet. Then come back and tell me what you ordered…hopefully everything’s not already gone by the time you get there. I ordered the charcoal crinkle caftan, because I couldn’t NOT order it for $95. I’ve been wanting an Emerson Fry caftan forever, and this one was already on my list of things I wanted for summer, and a little imperfection never hurt anybody. So…without much thinking, I snatched it up! We’ll see how it works on me.
Also, James Perse is still offering free shipping on orders over $150 with code MEMORIALDAY15. There are so many good dresses there now; I’m crushing on all of them.
The James Perse outlets are having an additional 30% off sale items in store this weekend. I have pdfs of the items available in the San Marcos, TX store and a contact there if you’re interested. There are VERY limited sizes left in most items, and all sales are final, as usual, but there are some gems: the gauze shirt dress (as seen on me) would be about $75 and it’s available in all three colors, casual tees in a few colors for $17 + extra 30% off (!!!), long cashmere/cotton skirt for about $60…
I can forward you the pdfs and my contact there if you’re interested. Just send me an email (grechen – at – grechenscloset.com) ! FYI, they charge $10 for shipping.
Finally…it’s the Nordstrom half-yearly sale! After a look-see this morning I didn’t find anything I couldn’t live without, but there are some really great deals. I think the Nordstrom sales are the best times to score denim at around $100, and there are some GREAT Eileen Fisher & Vince pieces on sale. In addition to James Perse, obviously.
Some of my favorite Nordstrom sale finds:
Are you getting anything from the Nordstrom sale? Are you set for summer shopping? What’s on your list still??
