Best in Sale Vol. II
Another look at expensive things that are still expensive but not as expensive as they were before
Summer sales are to women what children are to mothers: always on the mind when they’re around, kind of pesky and definitely anxiety inducing but then before you know it, they’re gone, with the wind, with your money, with your heart. And there you are: left with only memories of what you could have, should have, didn’t do.
I was never all that good at analogies but the fact of the matter is–in conjunction with the latter–they came, they repelled, and now they’re going. Before these sales slip away though, here’s the second and last volume in Best in Sale, likely directed at the same female whose heart so much as fluttered at Cinderella’s nightmare yesterday. Starting with a boutique dedicated to cool people who like cool things like transparent boots and bright plexi-visors…
Here’s LN-CC. From top left: Junya Watanabe jacket, PAM utility green garbage dress, Mary Ping silver pants–and really, what’s a woman without silver trousers–Givenchy orange visor, Toga two tone sweater, Pedro Laurenco sheer tank, Junya Watanabe combat boots, Margiela transparent boots, Fleet Ilya clutch. Toga sheer midi skirt with patent leather panel–are you picking up on the theme?–Ann Demeulemeester beige draw string shorts, Givenchy layered blouse, and the money piece: Haider Ackermann purple blazer.
Meanwhile, on mytheresa: Proenza Schouler three tone dress and green button adorned mini skirt, Aurelie Bidermann mother of pearl charms, Salvatore Ferragamo glitter clutch, Stella McCartney tote, Fendi perforated heels. Rag & Bone pajama blouse alongside floral Suno tank. Etoile Isabel Marant linen-denim blend shorts, Charlotte Olympia heels and a YSL anchor, for your neck.
And finally, on FarFetch: lookin for a wedding down? How about one that’s vintage and Balenciaga? Ching ching. McQueen skull ring, Moschino yellow multi-print dress, Dolce and Gabbanna fruit print mini hooker, high waist denim Chloe shorts, Ermanno Scervino denim clad in white lace detailing, FIX design floral mini and Valentino RED lace tap shorts. For tap dancing, obviously. On the shoe front: gold YSL, lucite Sergio Rossi, red rose or period stricken, whatever Lanvin flats. Hey, cool clutch. And that’s it, that’s my final discount plea. Do you feel safe?
