So how is your New Year going so far? Maybe you are trying to get a new job or start a business. Anyway, we all need that suit to dress to impress. I found this blue suit from Zara last year. It was chic and affordable, and to my knowledge didn’t rip off any specific designers. Yea I buy from Zara sometimes but you have to be careful with them. We all know fast fashion has a dark side and if you buy from them, you just need to be mindful of the lower cost production and designer knockoffs.
The suit seems to be sold out but I found these cropped blue Theory pants on sale at FARFETCH and this Milly blazer on sale at Revolve. I paired my suit with a pair of blue vintage Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. Check out more photos below!

So if you haven’t heard already, FARFETCH is having a ridiculous sale. Over 3000 items are up to 70% off, AND they’re throwing in an additional 20% off with the code x20ff. Yea, I know. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, there are actually some amazing finds! I didn’t comb through all 3000 items but I definitely made my way through a lot of them and found some cute things for myself.
Everybody needs a good pair of jeans, these classic Brocken Bow skinny jeans above are on sale for $88. If you want to try something different…maybe you’re going to fashion week in one of the cities next month, try these purple Alberta Ferretti trousers with just a cool t-shirt or sweater.
Found a few cute sweatshirts/sweaters. They’re ideal for cozy warmth on a cold winter day. Loving the lace detail on the Adidas by Stella McCartney sweatshirt. Fabulous.
Some of these dresses can work this winter with some tights and even an undershirt. But some of them will be absolutely perfect for the spring!
Okay so up north it definitely gets old wearing the same coat everyday. Especially that good old black or grey that everybody wears. Hey I love black and grey but there is no better way to spice up a cold winter day than with a bright-colored coat. Delpozo has a beautiful yellow and beige cape coat 40% off. Hurry though because there is only one left.
There’s plenty of skirts on sale but I have to say this black and white Balmain mini skirt will definitely get worn. You can go to lunch with that…even to work if you do it right.
So mind you this Bao Bao Issey Miyake bag is on sale and I hardly ever see any of their merchandise on sale. And kid you not, Ashish, Proenza Schouler and Rebecca Minkoff. High to low… yess!
There’s a lot of boots on sale. Now might be the time to try that sexy high-knee boot or even these Versace velvet boots.
If you’re looking for more picks, feel free to visit the fashion shop. Have fun and please do share your finds in the comments below!

Here’s a trend I can get behind for Spring 2013: soft, slouchy and comfortable pants! I don’t know about you but with this NYC cold, I’m already looking forward to Spring and can’t wait to wear some cherry-colored pants like these Joie Crepe “Jogging Pants” (pictured above), these black leather Vince “jogging pants” (pictured below). You could also do these lilac Phillip Lim pants from the Fall collection (below, left). Check out my “Soft, Slouchy Pants Collection” on Lyst here.
Looks like comfort and style are winning this Spring and I like it. I especially love these Phillip Lim Overalls, pink, green or black leather!
