Igigi is having a “secret” showroom event in San Francisco (Mission Street) on Thursday evening from 4-8. If you would like to attend, you must write to them TODAY at rsvp@igigi.com with the names of everyone in your group. There will be  a raffle, special prices on samples and irregulars, and a chance to try on Igigi items before buying, which of course is not normally possible with their online-only store.

Outside San Francisco: A reminder that Igigi is giving free shipping through Friday.

SWAK Designs has made incredible headway in their style this year, to the point that Francesca can actually recommend looking there for business-casual workwear. Francesca is very proud of them! Trashy to classy in one season! She hopes this is the beginning of a movement (certain Other Vendors should pay attention). Just remember to stay away from velour.

Also from SWAK: Free worldwide shipping on orders over $40.  And, if you use code basic35 before the end of the day on Thursday, you’ll get 35% off any of their “basic” wear.

Old Navy’s outerwear sale ends on Thursday. office-appropriate blazer here. And what say you about  this jacket? Francesca thinks it is a hate, but if she squints she can imagine that there is a small niche of people who will love it and look good in it. Like, 5 people. Five very interesting people (says Francesca with sincerity).

Torrid has taken 50% off clearance items. This could end any minute so time is of the essence. floral pencil skirt for $15. Uber goth-irony pajama pants for $9.50. Plaid Corset Top for $20. Also, at regular prices, many many jeans sold according to inseam length.

Kiyonna has new, pretty items in their sale section. (Just please stay away from the velour! Urgh!)

Jessica London is having an online-only sale on select items. (Meaning, you won’t get these prices in the physical stores).

Liz Claiborne has New Plus Size Arrivals. Francesca loves the bright colors when everyone else is wearing brown, navy and forest green. Remember that they provide free shipping on orders of $75 or more. Also, throughout November, if you shop in-store at any of these Liz Claiborne retail locations, you can get 20% off by printing and bringing this coupon.

Happy shopping! xoxo

    “This could end any minute so time is of the essence” is the sort of sentence that makes me want to close the tab. I suppose I prefer a more white-glove service.

    The Old Navy cape is getting to a yes, I am very pro-cape, I wouldn’t wear the one in question, but I know a fierce apple-shaped lady with an amazing wardrobe of vintage dresses who would rock it, if it were a pure black or navy. I like grey, but blimey, that is a sickly-looking grey.

    hahah wow I was looking at Old Navy’s site a few days ago and decided that I heart that jacket! I don’t know how it would look ON me, but that’s moot since I have yet to really like the quality of their stuff.
