Since I'm a HUGE Vince fan and I recommended the Natalie bathing suit from Anthropologie and it was (gasp!) all sold out (boo hissssss!), I needed to tell you guys about this HUGE Vince summer sale for BOYS and GIRLS that's happening.

It's crazy!  You can get this leather jacket for $300-ish instead of $800-ish:


Shut up.  Shut up.

Tuppence, tuppence, tuppppence for saaaaale!

Sorry.  Just having an Oliver Twist moment.

Apropos of nothing, did you all see The Social Network?  I was late on that and only saw it Sunday afternoon and now I've decided I'm going to invent something and become a multi-billionare.  First I just have to transform into a genius and motivate myself beyond the latest episode of "The Good Wife."

Just you wait, Henry Higgins!  Just you wait!

Seriously, what am I talking about?  It's only Monday morning and I've already lost my mind completely.

Ahem.  Now down to serious business.  I wrote about a while back for T + L, but I wanted to re-mention now, as they're having this 30%-off sale on all their awesome high-end (yet packable sized) beauty products.

Just use the coupon code above, all you jet setters.

Meanwhile, I'll be busy sharpening my brain.  Watch out, Zuckerberg, here I come.  I knew guys like you at Harvey Mudd.  They rode around on unicycles.  I'm not afraid!  (Well, I'm a little afraid of the unicycles themselves, but you know what I mean.)

Tourists may talk up the Hollywood sign and Mann's Chinese, but us L.A. locals know it's staple events like the Fred Segal Sale, Modernica Warehouse Sale and Third Street Holiday Block Party that keep us keeping on.

Well, one such such event is just around the bend starting this Friday and that, my LINTY friends, is the l.a. Eyeworks Sale.  Not only is the sale a highly anticipated local L.A. tradition, but the brand itself has been beloved FOREVER!

Personally, I'm thinking I need a new pair of regular glasses.  Maybe something dramatic like these:

This weekend's Third Street Sidewalk Sale may have appeared a bit lackluster (sans the usual block party's free gelato and tacos and some of the now defunct former shops), but most of the stores were in fact offering at least 10%-off goods.  Strolling down the strip, in and out of fave shops from Modern Sage to Hillary Rush, I landed at Satine.  Now, most of the time I peruse Satine with caution, knowing that most of the pieces (shoes, bags, dresses, what-have-you) are sadly out of my range, no matter how passionate the love affair.

But the boutique's backroom (offering 40%-off) is stocked to the brim with amazing finds right now.  I personally snagged the above buffalo-checked Trovata jacket for a fraction of the original price (and you know you can always use a light weight jacket in LA).

Maybe it's the economy (no one is shopping, so good stuff is leftover) or just dumb luck, but Satine's back room is currently worth a drive by.

Proceed without caution.

P.S. Even their website is offering a "Dirty 30 Percent Off Sale."  Now, if only I could find a way to grab those See By Chloe platforms . . . not quite on sale.  Pretty please?

LA (and beyond): THE BEST FROCKS (ON SALE)

By Nora Zelevansky / January 29th, 2009

0109BlogPicsDolanA0109BlogPicsDolan3A0109BlogPicsDolan2A0109BlogPicsDolan1A The perfect frock is invaluable in LA: paired with lovingly worn flip-flops and sunglasses in summer and textured tights, boots (back away from the Uggs, dude, it’s never that cold) and, for me, an unbelievably amazing Leigh & Luca scarf in cooler temps.  Last season dresses almost eclipsed jeans, at least in my closet.

So, it’s no surprise that Cali born and bred designer Jodie Dolan would have an enviable handle on the immaculately chic, but still Cali-lite, day-to-night, sassy, romantic, high class little frock (okay, and tops too–I couldn’t help but add one above).
Well, as indicated on her site, Dolan’s dresses are available all over LA.  But today and tomorrow (1/29-1/30), she’s having a sample sale. And her sales are NOT to be missed at 75%-off (click link for deets).
Seriously, I grabbed three dresses last time.  And, for the record, I never wear them with Uggs.

P.S. Look out for Dolan’s newest venture, Left Coast (a collection of inexpensive tees), which should ship in April!
