I’ve been on a bit of a jewelry binge lately, so July’s shopping picks highlight some of my favorite pieces and recent finds. July for me has turned into a month of mixing soft and feminine pieces (think embellished necklines and and lace sleeves) with those that are understated and refined, so I made sure to pick several pieces that reflect each of these styles.
Some summer styles coming at you for June’s wrap-up! This month, I’m featuring color-popping pieces that can summon the summer sun even on the dreariest of days. Even better, all the picks are under $80.
It’s the last weekday of the month, so that means you get a double-dose of The Glamour Less with a second post – this time on my top shopping picks for the month of May. For this shopping list, I looked for spring-to-summer transition pieces that could easily be dressed up or down, depending on the effect of the hot and humid weather on my motivation to get all dolled up. Though a couple of my picks are over $100 full-price (i.e., the C. Wonder dress and the Marc Jacobs top), these pieces are frequently on sale for well-below their ticket price. In fact, the MJ top is marked down right now to $92, but I’ve seen it go as low as $81 — and for any given C. Wonder sale, you’re likely to get at least 30% off full-priced styles.
Introducing the first of monthly installments of my shopping / wish list! I have carefully compiled my top shopping picks for April based on the transition to warmer weather, spring pastels, and items I’ve wanted to add to my closet for quite some time — and all but one are $60 or under (and in some cases, way under $60)! Of course, I had to include one splurge item that I’ve been stalking for the last two months. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Techno Block Slim Zippy is my perfect blend of practical/neutral meets sassy/bold, and I wouldn’t mind getting it as a gift. (Hint hint, wink wink, boyfriend!)
