Troll the final sales

A few deals and steals from final sales. Yes, things are getting kind of picked over, but if you are willing to spend a little time you might just come up with a style in your size that is worth it. For example, this Vince leather jacket is a steal at just $211 on Bergdorf Goodman’s site. Yeah, REAL leather, for <$250, crazy. Plus, the ribbed collar and dolman sleeve inserts makes it so cool.

I also love this retro looking Kate Spade silk dress in emerald green, the cut is so flattering, and the price cannot be beat $138 on If you’re a size 8, you’re in luck, as that’s what was left when last I checked.

Lastly, Smythson of Bond Street  is having a big sale online and though the luxury British-based leather goods company is pricey, the sale is worth a perusal.  I have their slim travel wallet in a kelly green that I bought years ago from their store in New York, and still use it all the time.  When not traveling I use it to hold/organize my coupons for grocery shopping! Funny, I know, but somehow it makes the whole experience more tolerable (love grocery shopping, hate thumbing through coupons — but my husband is a coupon clipper so I try to at least use them when I go).  Love their Amber collection, here’s the zip-around travel wallet they’ve got on sale now for $354.
