Sales at certain stores always mean certain things. When there is sale at J.Crew (when isn't it?) it means loading up on bright sweaters. Club Monaco is for discount trousers - and the coolest pair of long leather gloves for $20. Anthropologie? I head straight for the "comfort" rack loaded with frilly slips and soft nightgowns at big discounts.
I picked up this lovely blue number last Friday for half off. I'm tempted to save it for my honeymoon road trip trousseau...the pattern seems very "Americana."
