Breaking the Christmas Golden Rule

Posted in Deal Of The Day, Fashion Files, Inspiration, Uncategorized by Miss Pomp on December 20, 2012

Everyone knows the golden rule right before Christmas – you’re not allowed to buy things for yourself. What if someone else knew you wanted that thing, and bought it, wrapped it, and has it sittin’ under the tree right now, only to see you saunter in the door wearing said item that was so lovingly and carefully chosen.

But I can’t help myself. The sales. Oh Lord, the SALES!  They are just too good to pass up. So here are some of the sales I’m most excited about (check em out!), and some items I’m thinking about wrapping and putting under the tree for myself!

J. Crew – Obvies one of my faves.

Hershel Supply Co Backpack – There is absolutely no reason for me to require a backpack, but if I did, I’d get this one.

Belted Leather Bomber in True Black

I ordered this bag a couple of weeks ago during the J. Crew promotional sale, and since the moment it arrived, it has been my constant go-to bag. It adds visual interest and makes even the most ho-hum of outfits seem fun!

AND, it just so happens J. Crew is doing another promotional sale right now! Check it out here.



Deal Of The Day And Some Fall Picks To Salivate Over

Posted in Deal Of The Day, Fashion Files, Inspiration, Pomp Day-By-Day by Miss Pomp on October 21, 2011

Hot Dang! Yesterday I opened my email and saw the following email from J. Crew:

I love me some J. Crew!  And I just happen to have been sitting with multiple items in my shopping cart at JCrew.com just wishing and hoping for a coupon code that would lower the total enough that it didn’t make me want to puke looking at the number.

Here is a little J. Crew-spiration to get your shopping juices flowing.

I’m loving this bright approach to fall!

Hurry the sale ends Sunday!

As David Byrne said, “I Got Love For Sale”…

I just listed my ex-kitchen hardware on craigslist here and I thought I would pass it on to you guys. I have loved them so, but I’m going a different route. Here they are-

Anyone interested?

(Hat – Forever 21, Shirt – Anthropologie)

I have been eyeing a leopard fedora at JCrew.com for about 2 months now, willing it to go on sale.  Said fedora was $118. Gross.

Low and behold, I found this look alike for, count with me, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7….$8!

That’s right, folks, $8 at Forever 21. Don’t mind if I do!

Remember These?

well, sadly they do not match my room after all. I loooove them, but can’t make them work. Anyone local (Santa Cruz County) interested in purchasing them? They can be yours for $100. Somebody needs these! It would be too sad to send them back to exile on the shelf in Homegoods….
