Be$t Of $ale

So I spent pretty much every free moment in between work Tuesday writing what ended up being a pretty lengthy post on the "best of sale" items with the intention of finally publishing it once I got home. Things didn't exactly go as planned since I opened up this here page to find nothing. Absolutely nothing. I'm sure many of you can relate to how freaking frustrating this is, especially when you know it's not going to come out the same again, but as self proclaimed empress of Chicistan, the show must go on (just kidding about calling myself an empress guys, I thought a little comic relief would help to lighten up my mood but eh... maybe you'll find it somewhat funny). I must tell you about the wonders on the internet, even though I am extremely mad at it right now.


 I think the best way to do this is to start from the top left, make my way down, and to the right. Here goes nothing:

What's summer without a pair of some new fresh shades? Huh, huh, huh? I'm a big fan of Illesteva and this shape in particular. I really love that they are leopard print with clear sides, it's a nice substitution for tortoise. Get them here.

This T by Alexander Wang dress doesn't really look like much on a computer screen, but trust me, it's one hell of a dress. Definitely not as basic as it looks but definitely just as wearable as if it were. It's made of neoprene material so it's super flattering and the zip-up slit in the front gives it a nice little oomph. If you're looking to update your little black dress I strongly suggest you do so via this one.

I know you're probably sick of me talking about Rag and Bone's Newbury booties but they are honestly the best lil heeled booties to exist. They're also on sale with an additional 30% off at Intermix with plenty of sizes left and that, like, never happens. Run ladies, don't walk, run!

I love me a good statement necklace and I don't think Shourouk has ever been this well-priced so I had throw it into the mix. You can't really tell but the collar of it is made up of colorful jewels, take a closer peepski here.

Look familiar? These are the navy version of my olive Topshop overalls except they're on sale for half the price. I don't know that I need two pairs of the exact same overalls, but thinking about wearing it in the colder months with a black leather jacket sure is convincing me. So many possibilities.

This beaded short-sleeve oxford from J Crew is so good it hurts that my size isn't left. It's the perfect shirt to spruce up your usual Canadian tux and just so pwetty.

Another great piece on sale, that never goes on sale, this IRO jacket. So cute for the summer with cut-offs and a tank and even in the fall with greys or denim. Get it here while it lasts with an additional 30% off.

If I wouldn't have recently gotten some Sergio Rossi pumps that look pretty similar, I would definitely purchase these B Brian Atwood ones. This single sole pump is right on trend and I love the subtlety of its details. The studs give them a nice modern twist without being like WOAH STUDS... ja feel? I'm really into nude shoes at the moment but they are also available in red and black here.

You've seen these Isabel Marant earrings before here, but now they're on sale, and I really think you should get them. As I said before, I would normally never go for this shape of earring, but they look so good on, and for under 80$ it's a steal. I'm obsessed with my little oranges.

Another great steal is this Miu Miu scalloped bikini for just under 125$. Say whaaaa? I know. It's also available in other colors here.

Right below are Stella McCartney's multi-strap sandals. They're simple, strappy, and perfect for ze summer.

I'm really keen on these Charlotte Olympia sandals. I think they're a great and fun summer sandal but maybe that's just because I'm really keen on Paris. Who wouldn't want to have Paris at their feet?

And because everyone needs a summer dress, I've included this one that is part of Manrepeller's collaboration with PJK. It's a tropical print done right, and best of all, it has a cut-out back that you can get a look at here. Oh yeah, baby, oh yeah.

If you're looking to replace your wallet or cardholder, I love the textures of these by Alexander Wang. Find them both here.

Embellished bra for 29.95$. Sounds intriguing but confusing, no? It was that very description that made me click and find on the other side something I didn't even know I wanted. Unfortunately there is only size large left, so if you've got them big tatas, you should definitely get it. Just think how cute it would look with a high-waisted denim skirt like this one here and this white vest or even just with high-waisted denim cut-offs. Me thinks it would make for a great summer outfit. You could even wear it underneath your new overalls! I could keep on going on but aint nobody got time for that. As you can see, the possibilites are endless and I'm really jealous of this items future owner.

Last but certainly not least, a feminine floral print meets a not so feminine cargo silhouette to make these awesome Thakoon pants. Really luuurve these pants, there's something about them that's quite refreshing don'tcha think?

Well that's all for now Chicistanis. Sorry that was so long but it would have been wrong not to share these finds with you. Happy Friday!
