Odds & Ends

Sales alert at Saks' F&F event: Use code FRNFAM2 for 25% off (designer exclusions apply) through 4/28.

A few closet favorites available at a discount:
- Burberry Marystow trench - $896.25 sale price (I'm wearing sz 2 - see outfits)
- Longchamp LM Metal tote - small is $116.25, large is $131.25 (read review / see below + outfits with bag)
- Ali Ro draped dress - blue is $187.50, hot pink is $112.49 (I'm wearing sz 0 - see outfits)
- Marc Jacobs large Single - pink is $506.25 (see outfits with bag)

Also, today's the last day for Neiman Marcus' gift card event for regular-priced purchases of $250+ by using code BET2GET. If the item/designer is excluded from Saks' F&F and/or probably won't be going on sale, the next best thing is getting a gift card towards a future purchase. It's not instant savings, but it's better than nothing. For this reason, I went ahead and purchased an item I've long been lusting after, the Valentino Rockstud sandals. The shoes are actually $895 (listed price of $945 is marked wrong) and will be corrected once an order is placed. During check-out, I noticed a $29 delivery and processing charge, but was able to waive it by stacking two codes, APRILFS with BET2GET.

Lastly, at Hollister, take 40% off entire purchase (+ free shipping over $75) using code 36040 through 4/24.

A traditional summer piece (linen pants) may seem at odds with a turtleneck (usually associated with winter). However, the tissue-thin fabric of the turtleneck makes it a great transition piece on colder spring days. The linen pants were mainly chosen for its white color, but also worked weather-wise. Versatility ftw.
