Shop It To Me is RIGHT!!

Before I was ever a member of RueLaLa, HauteLook, BeyondtheRack, Gilt, or OneKingsLane, I was subscriber to 'Shop It To Me'  Sale (e)Mail updates.  I'm actually still a bigger fan of these emails that the sample sales, since the sample sales take some skill in correctly navigating and stalking your item so you can place it in your cart and sit on it before someone else can have the chance to do the same damn thing.... in short, when they have a great designer, its super annoying to actually buy something.
(click the links above to join the any of sample sale madness)

Now, Shop It To Me is more of an alert tool that you can set up preferences for how often you want to be alerted that your favorite brands have items you are looking for (dresses, tops, jeans, shoes, purses, etc. etc.) in the specified sizes and price ranges you want.

Because these emails hold the "BUT IT'S ON SALE!" aura, I've set my alerts for only twice a week - Mondays and Thursdays.  Some days I fill up virtual shopping carts at too many websites to count, others I simply delete the email without even checking to see what's good.

Today... I looked.  And I liked.

A lot.

Here are some (well many) of my favorites from my Shop It To Me alert....

This is like Black and White Cookie meets Cupcake... and looove it.

Alice + Olivia Strapless Dress with Striped Skirt - Shopbop $346.50

Military inspired and ruffles... and puckered shoulders... IN GREY!!!!.. actually it's 'Lunar Rock Melange'... say what?! I'm not even sure how to pronounce that, let alone associate it with a color....

Marc by Marc Jacobs Candace Jacket - Shopbop $179

Sweet heavens of bows! Oh you are so my style....

Marc by Marc Jacobs Bow Chain Top - Shopbop $68.60

It might be time to move past the MbyMJ section in Shopbop, but this is too shareworthy...

Marc by Marc Jacobs Elise Top - Shopbop $124

Love that the 'puffed rouching' is neither 'ruffles' or 'rosettes'.. same vibe, but great excuse to say "I have NOTHING like it!!"

Splendid Silk Habotai - Piperlime $59.99

Pretty color... that is all.

Treesje Hendrix Mini - Bluefly $333

This would be cute for a Shower or Rehearsal Dinner... too bad its SOLD OUT! grrrrrr.

Matty M Mock Two Piece Dress - Nordstrom $39.90

GRRR-REAT work sweater! (beat it, I may or may not have had Frosted Flakes for breakfast....)

BCBG Cable Detail Sweater - Nordstrom $93.90

This AMAZING deal sold out already too... but you never know when a popback will happen.  It may also be available in store, so keep your eyes peeled!...

Ann Taylor Yarn Dyed Plaid Jacket - Ann Taylor $29.88

Adorable, and I'm typically not a fan of Juicy....

Juicy Couture Bow-Detailed Cotton-Silk Top - Bloomingdales $68.60

Screams perfect fit.... and click the link because it has a super cute tie back... (currently only available in L)

BCBGMAXAZRIA Striped Wrap Sweater - Bloomingdales $138.60

I've been wanting some Converse (since all I own aside from running shoes are -eep!- 7 pairs of brightly colored Pumas), but this is like mixing my two favorite things....

Puma 917 Slip On - Puma $33

This is starting to get repetitive - gray, stripes, cardigan... if you don't already exist in my closet, you will be there shortly....

BDG Sailor Stripe Cardigan - Urban Outfitters $19.99

According the stylist for Gossip Girl, Statement Necklaces are making way to Statement Bracelets this spring... and a Blair Waldorf wannabee has to be on trend, right??

Banana Republic Twisted Chain/Pearl Bracelet - Banana Republic $19.99

  1. I'm not sure if I have ever commented on any of your posts but I have been following for a few weeks now and must say, you have great taste (very similar to my own, so I suppose I'm biased)...I absolute adore that black and white dress and if we weren't trying to save (TTC) for a different addition to my household I'd snap it up in a new york minute. That Bloomies beauty in blue is equally as tempting and with the smaller price tag I think I may just snap it up. Btw I love Shop It to Me sale mail

  2. Thanks for following along JustinsMami!

    If I had an extra $346.50 laying around I'd be getting that dress too!

    It's nice to hear that you like my picks- especially since I don't really consider myself super fashion fwd. I'm aware of trends and I basically like (and buy) anything that can pair well with jeans :) I love following other fashion bloggers, but I'm just most comfortable in some jeans with a ruffly tank and J.Crew cardi... (but if you been following for a few wks, that's obvious)

  3. you are forever my hero for inviting me to Shop It To Me. my alert for today included an amazing trench coat with ruffle along the top buttons. hopefully it's not sold out tomorrow, so I can snatch it up!

  4. WOW!! $29.98 for trench- what a great find!

    I'd def need to try this on instore though... jackets are tricky.. I'm normally a XS in length, but could always use a S for the extra room in the sleeves....

    hmmmmm.. ::taps lip with finger thoughtfully::
