Best in Sale Vol. II

July 10, 2012

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?

    I agree all of it is rad, except for the orange visor.  I just can’t do visors….ever.  I’m not even sure little people like my ultra cute 4 year old can pull off one – just seems way dorky:)

    Oh Proenza Schouler… you’ve stolen my heart again.  I’ve never felt such an urgency to buy stuff!

    Sales are amazingly awesome and super dangerous. Impulse buying to the MAX. The worst is always the Opening Ceremony sales…words can’t describe. I walk in drooling. That place is basically my heaven.

    There is pretty things I just come to remember I should take them. So hard when you have to protect yourself from the sun while you love it.

    Sorry, Manedine, I usually got nothing but absurd amounts of love for you, but this page view, when you have to click into separate posts to be able to read them – kind of annoying.

    We have some serious corns and bunions, so those mesh Margielas wouldn’t look too, too right on us.

    Love that orange visor.  Can it be on top of my head, please?  Yes? Thanks. I also want that skull ring more than Paula Abdul wants her vicodin.

    Oh man, Jeffrey Campbell did a horrendously ugly version of
    those transparent Margiela boots. I don’t really understand how those can be
    comfortable. After years of “Jelly” shoes destroying my feet, I just
    don’t see how they could ever be worth the price.

    I love all of Mcqueen’s skull jewelry. I think it’s been
    knocked off by just about every other designer under the sun. I know that’s
    just the fashion industry, but good God, some of these brands just have no
    shame to their game.

    That Haider Ackerman Blazer… I needed to take a moment of
    silence after seeing that thing – what a beauty. Everything about that blazer
    is so on point: the color, the construction, the fabric.

    The Plexi Visor reminds me of my raving days; fist pumping
    in fur pants with a pacifier in my mouth.  A lot has changed since the raver days of yore
    – thank God.  I didn’t see anywhere in
    the article as to who the visor was by, although I’m sure it’s several hundred
    dollars more than my last one.

    The Salvatore Ferragamo “Glitter Clutch” reminds me a bit of
    something I could find at Claire’s, but what the hell do I know?
