1- Inhabit boiled wool cardigan | $206 after the code

4- T by Alexander Wang long sleeve tee | $67 after the code
Finally. I’ve been waiting for the Shopbop code for weeks, and now it’s here: use code FAMILY25 for 25% off your order. Lots of brands are excluded, like Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, ACNE, and Rag & Bone (Rag & Bone? Really?), but that still leaves a lot, and this time I made it out without ONE PIECE OF JAMES PERSE. Whoa.
Just to refresh your memory on my budget situation, the only “money” I have to spend on clothing is the credit I get from Shopbop every month for displaying their widget on my site, which I’ve been saving patiently. I do have a small discretionary fund every month, but that’s reserved for other things like hair, Dagny, books, wine, etc., so I try not to ever spend any of that on clothing. And I don’t really need to. I also have about $500 I can spend at James Perse that I allocated after having a very good summer 😉
At this point, I’m really just replacing things I love that are okay, but are too big on me now, or don’t fit my needs. Since it actually cooled down a bit here I’ve had time to think hard about what I need for my lifestyle, and for cooler weather, so I settled on these four things at Shopbop:
1- Inhabit boiled wool cardigan | $206 after the code (since this popped up on Shopbop I’ve been stalking it – I love Inhabit, as you know, and decided I’m happy with my black cardigans, so was looking for a lighter in color, and not-cashmere cardigan. Found!)
2- BLK DNM hoodie | $108 after the code (this was a practical purchase mostly; I have a men’s Champion sweatshirt that I bought last year that I wear around the house, but now, I need something with pockets – for taking Dagny out – and with sleeves that are made for a woman! The Champion’s sleeves are SO LONG I can’t really do anything when I’m wearing it. I also love gray sweatshirts…)
3- Vince perforated leather sneakers | $146 after the code (Based on my track record with my black haircalf Blair sneakers by Vince, I have long wanted a non-haircalf version that I could wear in more inclement weather. I also wanted something not so …black…size down 1/2 size if this is your first pair of Vince shoes)
4- T by Alexander Wang long sleeve tee | $67 after the code (I have this shirt in a size large that I got several years ago and promptly shrunk by accidentally drying it. I kept it around because I absolutely LOVE how soft and drapey it is; great for layering. It was time to replace it…)
That’s it for me. Obviously I’ve tweaked my “fall shopping list” a bit since my fall shopping post a month ago, but I think it was too early to even THINK about what I wanted for cooler weather then, I just don’t ever fully realize what I need until the weather starts to really change. I’ve also had a chance to try some things that were on my list and either took them back, or decided I like what I have just fine.
Saks also started their F&F today: 25% off with code FRNFAM. Same brand exclusions there…
