Revolveclothing.com has been one of my favorite online shopping destinations for years. And I was super stoked when they opened a brick and mortar store on Melrose a few years back. I've attended several great launch events at the Melrose spot, but the online site remains a favorite due to it's crazy vast selection of crave-worthy designer duds. I used to get a little out of hand shopping Revolve...when the credit card bills came in it could be scary! But I've toned it down a bit in recent years, and I haven't splurged like that in a while. Hence I was surprised (and a bit confused) a few days ago when a relatively large package arrived at my door from Revolve. I opened it thinking, hmmm if they've sent me something fabulous by mistake I'm definitely keeping it...terrible I know but I couldn't help the thought! Of course it all made sense when I realized they had sent a lovely print version of their fall look book - large and glossy and easily as nice as any coffee table publication. What I wasn't expecting was the card, essentially stating it's been a while, here's $200 to use towards your next purchase. I was floored. I had to read it several times to make sure what I saw was true. They sent me a $200 gift card, absolutely no catch, I just have to use it by December 31st. Obviously, that won't be difficult. In truth, I ran straight to my computer and began compiling a wishlist. I browsed the entire women's sale section in an effort to really stretch that $200. Unfortunately I wound up with a list totaling well over $200 worth of merchandise, but I've included a few of my top picks here. The House of Harlow Triple Horn Pendant Necklace has been on my radar for a while, and now it's on sale for $85. I love edgy statement pieces and could easily style this a number of ways. Also, I've been looking for a pair of black cropped trousers. This pair from Genetic Denim is super sleek and versatile, and although they look like denim, they're actually 97% silk. Finally, I'm obsessed with the leopard print blazer by Patterson J. Kincaid. I love a blazer with strong shoulders and don't own a leopard version, so this is definitely something I need in my wardrobe. Just want to say a huge THANK YOU to revolve for this awesome surprise gift. Rest assured I'll put it to good use :)
As a follow-up to last night's post, I just wanted to share this snapshot of my current Sole Society closet (i.e. wishlist). I absolutely love the color story and find it especially fitting for fall - perhaps not all the open-toes but definitely the colors. Plus here in So Cal you can pretty much get away with open-toes through the winter. Clearly I'm into platforms, but Sole Society offers everything from ballet flats to riding boots. Register here through my personal referral link and start filling up your own closet now!
Okay, so I've been meaning to post about my recent purchase from Sole Society...The order actually arrived last month, but life's been hectic and now I'm finally sitting down to write about it! For those of you who don't know, Sole Society is member's only shoe site where you can browse hundreds of shoes to find that perfect pair, at an ultra affordable price. Most of their shoes sell for either $50 or $60 with free shipping. There are no membership fees and there's no obligation to buy. Sole Society is partnered with Nordstrom and Vince Camuto so of course the shoes are fantastic quality for the price. One of my favorite features on the site is the "My Closet" feature, which allows you to keep track of all your sought after shoes...essentially a wishlist. Obviously my closet is quite full, but just a few weeks ago I was able to free up some space during Sole Society's summer BOGO sale. Buy one get one free is an incredible deal, too good to pass up, so I broke down and ordered four pairs of shoes for the price of two! I was taking a bit of a risk because BOGO shoes are final sale, but fortunately for me, all the shoes arrived in perfect condition and fit precisely true to size. You can see the lovely new additions pictured above - Mattie in cognac, Nahla in natural, Lena in buttercup, and Ruthie in coral - I got all four for $120! That's like four pairs of shoes for the price of one if you ask me. All four styles are still available on Sole Society's website, though they're no longer buy one get one. Even at $50 per pair they're still an excellent buy. Register here and start shopping today! I definitely recommend Sole Society to anyone looking for a cute pair of shoes at a great price.
