Shopbop Sale: The Little Black Dresses

Now is a great time to shop at Shopbop; they are offering an extra 25% off their sale with the code EXTRAOFF25 at checkout.

There are many things I love on sale but I was struck by how many gorgeous gowns they had and how many versions of the little black dress.  Now might be the time to invest in a classic LBD.

What I wanted to buy...but didn't at LOFT

I did some shopping on Black Friday.  Nothing major, just a few stores.  I didn't want to go and battle the crowds at one of our larger malls so I stayed close to home where the selection is a bit more limited. I stopped at Target and Kohls for Christmas gifts.   I also checked out LOFT and Old Navy since both stores were 50% off everything.  I wasn't impressed with much at Old Navy but did like a lot at LOFT. 

Everything at LOFT online today is 50% with the code CYBER50.

LOFT Melange Knit Moto Jacket $89.50 

This is really more a sweater than a jacket.  I saw it in the store and loved it.  I also love that it doesn't have wool in it which I can't wear.  However, I didn't love the price, even at half off, because I have a few jackets and sweaters that are SO similar to this.  I just couldn't justify it.  But if you are in the market for something like this, I highly recommend it.

LOFT Ruffle Collar Tie Waist Shirt Dress $84.88 online - on clearance for much less in store

This would have been $25 after the 50% off in store.  Unfortunately, they did not have any size that fit me.  It is really short so I would have gone with a regular length in this and at 5'3 I usually get the petite.  I was debating on biting the bullet and getting it in my size online today with the 50% off for Cyber Monday.  I can't bear to pay the increased online price and shipping though so I don't think I will.

LOFT Marled Stitch Open Cardigan $79.50

I really like LOFT's lounge clothes.  They are all so incredibly cozy!  This sweater looks like a warm, chic blanket.  Again, I have too many things similar...I just can't do it.

LOFT Partridge Sweater $59.50

Here is what I really wanted.  I saw this Partridge sweater online last week and loved it.  I have a thing for birds, and while I don't usually enjoy them so much on sweaters, this one does it for me.  They did not have it at any of the LOFT stores near me and by the time I looked online today, it was sold out.  Oh well, it will help me keep my spending in check.  As you can see, I'm doing a fairly good job of talking myself out of most any other purchase!
