Glitter Sale 2012: Tina’s Picks: If I Were Shopping Today, This is What I Would Buy

It’s a blessing and a curse being a fashion blogger.  I have access to sneak peeks and previews of sales and events, but although I can shop early, I can’t buy anything!  I had the bittersweet pleasure of perusing the vast selection of Glitter Sale items a couple of weeks ago, and if they had let me, this is what I would have bought.

Rachel Roy

This printed Rachel Roy dress is so current, it still has the original price tag on it!  I’m a big fan of her designs.



It’s a crime to pass up a vintage Diane Von Furstenberg black draped 1940’s style dress.  This one is probably a little too long for me, but it’s so flattering through the shoulders and waist that I’d just shorten it.



This separates ensemble reminds me of Helena Bonham Carter’s style.  The sweater, by Nanette Lepore, wears like a jacket and is fitted in all the right places.  The skirt is labeled Linea Domani, which is a French Canadian line.  Here’s a tip: contrasting prints will go together if the color palette is complementary.



I would also have to have this oxblood wool cloche hat with feathers, this gold red-carpet clutch with a blingy clasp, these Vivian-Westwood-esque plaid pumps by Coach, and this amazing Chanel handbag.  If you see any of these items at the sale, stay out of my way!

Item: 123 | 124 | 125 | 126

Hey Tina! My husband wants to know if there are men's clothes part of the sale, as well?

Hi Janelle! We have a good selection of men's clothes at the sale - lots of really nice button-down shirts, blazers, suits and shoes.
