Sale code alert from Pink Mascara!!
Use the code "40off" when you check out on just about everything on their site. (There are some exceptions -- DVF, J Brand, and some other brands aren't included.) Stuff that's already on sale does not get an additional discount.
I may have shown these to you before, but I'm semi-obsessed with them.
I think these are a great version of the tough, bondage-inflected shoe that's all the rage right now, but slightly scaled-back for real life. I love the idea of them with colored tights. Fab.
These boots make my heart sing, but they are speeeeeeeendy. With 40% off, they're still not cheap, but they are pretty reasonable for a reptile boot that you will wear for a million years. Skirts, jeans, whatever -- these are going to go with absolutely everything.
What a pretty, grown-up, wearable dress.
It's Philip Lim, who does awfully good dresses. This is silk jersey, so you are going to need the correct underduds, but it's such a great color and easy shape, and I love the detail of the lace on the shoulders (even though the Pink Mascara site does a pretty dreadful job of showing you that detail. I do wish this site would hire a new designer.)
Right now the thing that I'm hunting (when I allow myself to hunt, which is not often) is tops. Specifically, blouses with sleeves that preferably have a pattern to them. This is not as easy as it sounds, especially since I'd really prefer washable fabrics like cotton to silk. This is pretty adorable.
Always like a good polka dot, although it's silk and black & white, which I already have plenty of. See? Hard to find just the right thing.
I also really, really love this
because of the wonderful graphic pattern. It's so art deco, it looks like something from the Chrysler building. Silk jersey.
Great Joe's Jeans in their Honey cut, which is their "curvy" style. They're more fitted at the waist with more room for your... um, curves.
More Joe's, in their Provocateur, which is the Petite cut. It has a shorter inseam and a higher knee break. This is a nice thing in a jean -- I have petite friends who despair of wearing boot cut or trouser jeans because they have to hem up so much of the leg that it ruins the line.
I'm very taken with this leather bracelet.
Very cool in a combo tough girl/equestrienne sort of way. I like to wear big unexpected pieces like this with very tailored clothes, for the contrast.
So, go! Shop!!
