ShopBopSneakPeekSale

Yes… another sale alert–but these are two not to miss!  Saks is offering 40% off on loads of goodies in its sneak peek sale going on now thru Friday.   Score 30% off at Shopbop during its three-day sneak peek sale ending Thursday.  A few noteworthy finds:

Saks

1.  A great coat in a bright hue–this one by Milly adds a dose of edge with leather sleeves; 2. Leather leggings (these are like a second skin, a splurge-worthy staple in my book); 3. Leather fit and flare skirt, another season staple (also love this one); 4.  These Rachel Comey ankle boots are great year round kicks (I have them in black and they’re super comfortable–note, they do run a tad on the narrow side).

ShopBop

1.  Club Monaco’s Tasha leggings are a budget-friendly answer to the real thing–these come in great colors too; 2A pair of sleek black ankle booties is a definite must have–these and these have the perfect mid-heel height for day-to-night comfort (also love these for an edgier look); 3. A silk trouser in a bold shade is a standout staple with year round versatility–love this pair; 4. It’s hard to find equipment blouses on sale AND in your size–this one in rust will be a go-to.

Found: Best (faux) Leather Pants EVER

Flattering, comfortable, great fit, perfectly placed zipper details–the list of accolades goes on….  These vegan leather skinnies are just too good to keep secret.

Perfect_Leather_Legging_Pants_Moto_Jean_Free_People_Vegan_LeatherFree People Vegan Leather Pants, $128, available here.

I ordered these on a whim because the Blank Denim version was sold out–so glad I did!  With buttery soft texture that easily passes for the real thing, these will be a go-to for fall.  I particularly love the zipper detail at the ankle–much easier for getting on and off…  Sizing note: fit is pretty true to size but if between sizes, go down.

You’re welcome!

Fab Finds: Leather Leggings That Won’t Break The Bank

Club Monaco’s Tasha Legging offers fabulous faux leather panels that look and feel like the real thing.  With a stretchy knit back that is both figure flattering and super comfortable, these babies easily dress up or down.  And at $139, no wonder they’re selling out like hot cakes.  If your size is currently out of stock, word on the street is that a new shipment is expected in early December.   Nonetheless, Shopbop has a full selection in chocolate and black snake.  While the fit is pretty true to size, I would size up if between sizes.

Tasha Legging, $139.50 at Club Monaco
