2023/08/29 Better Blueprint

This year, I'm sharing the best Labor Day sales and shopping in two ways: my top picks and the best brands to check out.

First up - my top picks for fall in no particular order. I'm sticking with camel, creams, and navy (no surprise there!) and my accent colors will be teal/green and red (with a touch of pink). What about you?! I'm hearing a spendthrifty and then splurge-worthy version of most items as well!

  1. Vest (Save / Splurge) - wear it now sans a shirt, tiptoe into fall with a tee, go all-in on 'sweater weather' with an oversized button-down, and then [surprise] wear it under a cardigan for a fun peek-a-boo...versatile for daysss!
  2. Clogs (Save / Splurge)
  3. Wide-leg pants (not oversized) (Save / Splurge) - once on, these will feel very upper West Side chic
  4. Jumpsuit (Save / Splurge) - aka lazy chicness (this is the one I love)
  5. Moto-inspired boots  (TipToe / All-In)
  6. A Chloe-esque third layer (Splurge / Save) - Chloe is always in fashion and finishing your outfit like this is an easy WIN
  7. Luxe knit (Save / Splurge)
  8. Slip dress (Sassy / Sophisticated) - I've got a knee-length one that I've worn endlessly and will rock going into fall under my cropped sweatshirt as well...
  9. Band collar or bib front shirt - you will get sooo much mileage out of this to dress up or down
Next - remember not all sales are created equal and, more importantly, everything isn't for you...sorry ladies! If you can be intentional and focus on a few fabulous pieces that increase the overall versatility of your closet, you will feel and look better. Just try it! Brands that will help stretch your wardrobe this fall include...
  1. Spanx - 70% off, those pants are perfection! EVERY client I have that has purchased them sings their praises and I have the shorts, so can chime in on the chorus!
  2. Everlane - they're cleaning house, I love their boxy short sleeve shirts - they have a very menswear camp shirt coolness
  3. Rag & Bone - love this "jean" dress that isn't really denim - they created a material using tencel so it's light [read: perfect for summer] but gives you the grit and insouciance of real denim...winning
  4. G Star Raw - some of the edgiest denim in the business that will give you that Usher 'bad girl' vibe + a very Pharrell hat and he's everything right now, especially after his FABU Louis Vuitton runway show!
  5. All Saints - 60% off, I tend toward their dresses for everyday funkiness but step outside your comfort zone and try a print that levels up your weekend girls night.
  6. Saint & Sofia, I find myself wearing the knot dress too often especially since you can wear it like 4 different ways!!
  7. Reformation - 70% but a lot to choose from every day to more formal pieces under $200.
  8. Mother - best butt-loving jeans around!
  9. Marcella NYC - sleek, minimalist, sustainable chic....that sums it up

I won't update this list but I will be sharing a few more finds via my Instagram Stories so tune in...
