My shopping problem is no exception. My inbox is constantly flooded with promotional emails from some of my favorites brands – emails that I really should not be be opening or even receiving (but then again, don’t I have the right to know when Helmut Lang is slashing its winter merchandise by 50%?) These emails and the sales they promote are freakin’ everywhere right now. Makes a shopaholic’s life
Sofia, a Chicago-based boutique with goodies from both local designers and large brands, is letting its online shoppers take 40% off all sale items right now, which is sort of amazing but also completely dangerous. I came out of this one relatively unscathed – I did buy two items but I swear I got fantastic deals on both.
First up, the Rag and Bone jeans. They’re a perfect fit, a true skinny leg with a not-too-low rise and just enough distressing along the thighs. They’re exactly what I’ve been needing. I’m a recent Rag and Bone convert – I think I’m finally understanding why everyone goes so crazy over their jeans. These really do fit well and feel sturdy, not like the kind of jeans that would fall apart in a year. When you take this quality into account, the $72.60 price tag (okay, I lied a bit in the title of this post) seems like a complete steal. These were originally $242, so chew on that for while.
Second purchase: This silk top from Line & Dot, which I snagged for all of $16.20. Yes. Silk. For under $20. This is not a joke. The top is a beautiful, vibrant color and has great asymmetrical details. This shape is hard to pull off sometimes but silk falls so well that this top would probably work on any frame. And I mean, that price.
The best part? You don’t have to be in Chicago to get on this discount train – in fact this particular price cut is only available online. Head to Sofia Live Lovely for your chance to score Rag and Bones for (just over) $70. Use the promo code “40sale” and don’t forget to tweet me pictures of your purchase @statementscene!
