Loving This Week: McQueen’s New Scarf + Fab Sale Finds

Azalea Jacket - Rebecca Minkoff Tote - Alexander McQueen Scarf - Joie Blazer - Wilt Sweatshirt

I spent a lot of time scanning the online sale racks this week. The end of summer is such a smart time to sale shop. Not only do you find summer items marked down, you can find the last of the spring items – which are perfect for fall – at clearance prices. Aside from the sale shopping, I fell hard for a luxe find that’s not even close to on sale: a silk McQueen scarf that was recently reissued exclusively for the Met store.

Check out all of the fun finds taking up space in my online shopping cart this week…

1. Azalea Salerio Drapey Jacket, $99.00
This casual cotton jacket is the perfect weight for transitioning from summer to fall. Here in the San Francisco area, it will work well into the winter too. That’s a lot of wear for under $100.

2. Rebecca Minkoff Medium MAB Tote, $185.50 (was $265.00)
This classic tote is ideal for work, and priced just right. I’m shocked it didn’t sell out days ago.

3. Alexander McQueen Broken Skull Scarf, $595.00
This gorgeous silk scarf is available exclusively at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which means it won’t be spotted all over the place. It was reissued specifically because it recalls a dress currently on exhibit at the Met’s Costume Institute as part of China: Through the Looking Glass. Beyond the relative exclusivity, it’s just plain gorgeous.

4. Joie Mehira Linen Blazer, $166.80 (was $278.00)
As I’ve previously mentioned, I’ve tried this blazer on via online try-before-you-buy service Lyon + Post and can attest that it fits like a dream. Now that it’s marked down, it’s practically a no-brainer.

5. Wilt Cotton Hi-Lo Sweatshirt, $55.60 (was $139.00)
From the front this looks like just another slouchy grey hi-lo sweatshirt. But, the back view reveals a pointed back hem. It’s the first quality sweatshirt I’ve seen with that funky pointed hem in the back, which I think makes it a little more edgy than the ubiquitous rounded version.
