The spring event at Shopbop is here…use code BIGEVENT16 for 15% off orders over $250, 20% off orders over $500 and 25% off orders over $1,000. I’m not normally a fan of tiered codes (I prefer a straight discount), but the good thing about these is that there aren’t a lot of brand exclusions. So, there’s that. And, if you planned ahead and saved up, the 25% off $1,000 is a great deal; you could pretty much knock out your spring shopping all at once, if that’s your thing.
Anyway, it seems I usually use this spring code at Shopbop to buy a pair of shoes. Last year, it was the Rachel Comey moon wedges, which I loved, but hardly wore and ended up selling in July. This year, I’m going equally beautiful and with a pair I love, but that are infinitely more practical, I hope: the Freda Salvador Lock D’Orsay flat. As I do, I obsessed and went over and over this decision in my head for hours before buying.
Also on my list were these Vince mules (so beautiful) and Coclico wedges (also beautiful!!), because I wanted something lighter in color for spring, but I ended up going with the flat oxfords, because, flat. Who am I kidding? I have beautiful wedges and sandals already, and I just don’t wear heels on a regular basis anymore. I want something I can wear the hell out of, and I think the Freda Salvador shoes are it. But we’ll see…
On the things I featured above: I tried on the Rag & Bone/JEAN dre jeans last week in several washes and really loved them. They fit my calves beautifully, and were very comfortable. They’ll stretch, but I think I’d take my “normal” size. I’ll talk more about denim later this week. The Nili Lotan blouse was on my short list of things to buy if I didn’t use my credits on the shoes; I love the light blue, and that it’s not actually chambray, but is as versatile as a chambray shirt. And finally, I don’t really need to say much about the James Perse dress do I?? Of course I love it, and recommend it. Click through to see the back!
Are you ordering anything? What do you have your eye on for spring?
*Coclico shoes are sustainable and ethically produced:
Our materials are sourced locally in Europe, near our small, family-run factory in Mallorca, Spain. At our NYC headquarters, we not only work to underpin the design process behind each collection but also seek the highest standards of ethical and environmental responsibility. The result is a union of modern minimalism and traditional quality.
I would consider Freda Salvador shoes also sustainable – they’re handmade in Spain as well.
Sadly, I don’t think the Vince shoes are necessarily sustainable, per se, but some styles are made in Italy, and I can absolutely vouch for their longevity and comfort.
