After a wardrobe audit, you realize your favorite pair of jeans are worn out beyond repair, or your favorite black heel cannot be saved by your trusty cobbler, which means it’s time to take advantage of the January sales. With sites from Matches Fashion and Net-a-Porter spouting 70-80% discounts, it’s hard to ignore the deep discounts. If you decide to shop the sales this month, stay focused and invest in timeless design. Put your money where it is most needed whether it’s in the form of a classic camel coat or navy tote and ignore the overly trendy and flashy styles during sales time. Your forever wardrobe will thank you. Here is a roundup of our favorite classics that are on sale now.

The Row Sample Sale 2017

the-row-sample-sale-2017-desmitten
It’s an annual event that is not to be missed. The Row Sample Sale started this morning at 9am. Grab your closest friends and make a day of it. I’ve missed this sale the past two years (because we were getting married/scouting locations for the wedding). So this year I was not going to miss it. I stopped by The Row sample sale for a sneak peek and here’s what you can expect: 70% off ready-to-wear and handbags. The handbag selection was vast and inviting. Crossbody bags, top handle totes and specialty clutches in multiple colors. Shoes are 60% off and there was an array of styles from velvet Mary Jane flats to suede slides and black heeled boots, prices ranged from $300-$700. If you are in the market for a winter coat, don’t get your hopes up, there were only a few styles spotted including an oversized grey blanket coat and a few short hooded robe coats. Seasonal offerings included tables full of cashmere sweaters priced between $300-$400.
Saturday, October 28 9am – 7pm
Sunday, October 29 10am – 6pm
Monday, October 30 9am – 7pm

Speaking Trench

Do you speak trench? When the weather is in flux, your overcoat options are endless. The most classic choice for navigating the seasonal transition is the trench coat. This month, as I scroll through my instagram feed, I can’t get away from the trench coat. From Low Classic and Agger Flachs to Burberry, everyone can find one that works into their style. Classic, quirky, asymmetric, what’s your trench style?
