Still Waiting

Sales for me are like the fashion lottery—I feel like I’ve won if I find an item in my size that I’d wanted, but wasn’t willing to pay full price for. I snagged a pair of Chloé pumps at 50% off that firmly fit this criteria. However, there are a few things at Net-A-Porter that I’ve had on my FW17 wishlist, like these by Saint Laurent, that are not yet marked down—I’ll be disappointed if the cardigan sells out, but I don’t want to pay full price. Ugh.

  • Completely agree it’s a risk but except for some gifts bought during Black days I am willing to wait for a truly great deal for myself. Happy Thanksgiving.

  • I’ve been watching that cardigan and Chloe’s version as well. Not paying full price, but if they get cut way down, I will. I have terrible luck with sales.

  • Me too. I’m not tempted by sales to buy what I don’t already want.. or need. But it’s tough sometimes resisting.

  • I am waiting for some McQueen and Valentino sweaters to go on sale here in London. And a pair of Gianvito Rossi boots. It is like winning a mini lottery but chances are good given supplies are larger than ever and prices too!

  • FYI the St. Laurent books are on sale at Nordstrom.

  • But sold out in black. I had them in the kic shop until they sold out.

  • Sale shopping is my favorite sport. I refuse to pay full price for Isabel Marant as it *always* goes on sale but I’ve scored some great items this week that I’ve been waiting for. Now I’m waiting for second markdowns to pick up a few bargains! It seems like Net a Porter and Matches are holding back some good items this year.

  • Preston I am a Stylist at saks and the Saint Laurent boot (also on my list) is on sale. Reach out if I can ever assist.
    I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

  • I moved to Paris 2 months ago and waited for the sales to start. It’s been hard to wait, but it’s worth it. I hope you get the pieces you are waiting for, Preston.
