Quick update: Ann Taylor Semi-Annual Sale

Thursday, July 3, 2014

There are a host of holiday sales right now, but the Ann Taylor sale is a good one.  Items are going fast, but I was able to snag this khaki suit I'd had my eye on for a few months now -- pants, jacket, and skirt for < $150 over my lunch break.

Looking at the reviews, this suit looks like it's going to be great for summer in Texas.  I love the shirt they paired with it, but I'll have to wait for it to go on sale before purchasing it makes sense for me.

I noticed, though, that Jones New York has some great shells in their 4th of July sales.  The shells below are currently < $15 after the sale and, according to the reviews, really are high enough quality fabric to wear under suits.  My collection of basis is slim.  In fact, I have only white, interview shells at this point in my career.

Since I don't know yet whether I'll like them, I limited myself to two.  I grabbed one in mint, basically because I just love the color name, "mint," and one in navy.  I noticed there are some other cute shells, though, with gathering at the top that aren't much more expensive.

I was pretty shocked and pleasantly surprised by these sales.  I bought a few suits for my first law school internship, one suit when I was told I had to have a navy suit to interview for clerkships, and haven't actually pulled the trigger on purchasing another suit since.  

I'll keep my fingers crossed that this was the right call!
