This weekend I did something I haven't done since I was a ten-year-old living in the suburbs and shopping by force at the whim of her mother – I went to Lord & Taylor. Most of the clothes are what you thought they were (old-lady-like, uninteresting), but Laundry by Shelli Segal surprised me with some fabulous winter coats and flirty cocktail dresses. Plus, they're on sale for up to 60% off!
I fell in love with the Melton Spread-Collar Jacket with Wide Belt ($215, was $430). The store was running out of sizes and colors, and the saleswoman told me that online's the way to go.
This sleeveless embellished v-back dress ($220, was $275) is an ideal alternative to black for those upcoming parties.
For less than $100, this office-appropriate belted empire-waist dress ($95.40, was $265) is a steal. And you'll have cash left over to score some new work shoes to wear with it.
