The serious sales are starting, first up 50% on MatchesFashion.com. Here are a couple of my edits. The best way to shop a sale? Buy something you wanted but perhaps didn’t fit into your seasonal budget (for me it was a tuxedo blazer, like this Pallas X Claire Thomson-Jonville), invest in restocking basics you know you need (say a black cashmere sweater), and finally, buy a thrill purchase–the kind of piece you wouldn’t usually treat yourself to but know that it will make you happy and feel really good when you put it on.
Pallas x Claire Thomson-Jonville blazer, $684; Nicholas Kirkwood heels, $337; Pippa Small Turquoise mountain hoops,$144; Re/Done jeans, $154; Gabriela Hearst tuxedo blouse, $495; Jil Sander tote, $715.
