Loving This Week: Dry Shampoo Sampler + a Bargain Work Dress

Monday, November 02, 2015 • Permalink • 

Ann Taylor Coat - Zara Dress - Jeffrey Campbell Pumps - Sephora Favorites - Baldwin Sweater

I didn’t set out to fill my online shopping cart with bargains this week, but that’s what happened. From a dress that screams upscale Brit for under $100, to a pale beige wrap coat that isn’t a huge investment, I found unexpectedly good buys in familiar places.

Over in beauty, Sephora has started to unleash their special holiday kits and collections. These specially priced goodies are always a ton of fun. I’m sure this won’t be the last one to make it onto my must-buy list.

Check out all of my online shopping picks for the week…

1. Ann Taylor Wrap Tie Coat, $198.00
I find pale beige and off-white winter coats so striking. Adding one of these light colored toppers is an insta-luxe injection for any ensemble. I think it comes down to the upkeep and looming possibility of complete stain disaster. It subconsciously makes the observer think, “Only someone made of money would invest in a disaster-courting coat like that.” This affordable wrap coat is a secret way to conjure the vibe, minus the deep pocket investment.

2. Zara Dress With Full Skirt, $99.90
Yet again, Zara delivers on a dress that looks way more expensive than it costs. This perfectly cut, work-worthy dress crafted from a pretty Bordeaux-colored Donegal wool-blend fabric feels so Burberry it’s ridiculous.

3. Jeffrey Campbell Bitsie Pump in Taupe, $130.00
I’m all about taking advantage of the block heel trend. It’s been a long time since a footwear trend felt this comfy, this wearable, while still looking high-fashion. This new suede shoe is equal parts versatile, durable, and affordable.

4. Sephora Favorites Extend Your Style Collection, $32.00 ($78.00 value)
‘Tis the season for new Sephora Favorites collections, and I want to try them all! This selection of travel-size dry shampoos is perfect for those of us who do the every-other-day blowout dance. It contains old faithful favorites like Klorane and Bumble and Bumble, plus hot new things, including the award-winning Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo.

5. Baldwin The Madison Sweater in Camel, $176.00
Simple, furry, camel-colored, classic sweater fun. This is a closet staple that will be loved for years to come.
