Milano Knit Mock Two-Piece Dress
Lafayette 148 New York
Sold by: Nordstrom

Fit Guide
Most anything from Lafayette 148 New York is worth a serious look when it’s on sale – the brand’s high-end quality and design justifies its price tag and at this big discount, it’s a pure delight. This knit dress will become a go-to for years to come. It looks like 2 pieces, but is one easy dress, with a peplum that really creates and defines your waist while concealing any lower belly or hip bumps we’d rather not show off. The deep red color looks great with black tights/stockings and heels or simple nude pumps in warmer weather. Lafayette’s modern fit isn’t too trim and comes in 2-18 (before they sell out).

Ladies’ Winter Sale Series Spotlight: Nordstrom

If one of your New Year’s resolutions was to spend smarter, you’re going to love what we’re talking about this month…Sale! For the next few weeks, we’ll be picking one of your favorite online stores, and digging through their virtual sale racks to come up with the best Sale Finds for the Mark Shale lady. We focus on pieces that are now a steal – but not just because of the great price. We find things that you will look just as appropriate and stylish in next year (or even for Spring) as you will right now.

This week’s featured retailer is Nordstrom, known for their large assortment of clothing and accessories for ladies that like modern, contemporary, or relaxed fits – they cover it all. In addition to the very wide net of product choices, Nordstrom offers free shipping & returns (using the label they provide) all the time.

We’ve got a few of our favorites here, and then head over to this week’s Fashion Finds, “Nordstrom Top 10 Sale List: Handpicked for the Ladies”, to see the rest of the best. Remember, it’s sale, so sizes go FAST. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. Let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media. We’d love to hear about your top steals.
FRAME - Le High Flare High Rise Flare Leg Jeans
Denim often goes on sale because the fit or wash isn’t going to be “in” next season. Well, that’s not the case here. These FRAME jeans have all the bases covered to be stylish now and next season, with its medium blue wash (or this darker one) and flared leg. Let’s face it, though, it’s really all about the fit when it comes to good jeans. FRAME’s fit is modern and not super skinny, so it looks great on most lady’s bodies. The higher rise of this style hits at a great spot just at/below your belly button to avoid belly/love handle hangover and accentuates the leg lengthening efforts of the flared leg. Petite ladies, don’t worry. If you need to shorten these, you won’t loose the flare – don’t forget to tell the tailor to “keep the original hem” and make sure they just skim the ground with your chosen shoes.
Theory - Yinga Sleeveless High/Low Fringe Hem Top
Theory is known for their sleek, minimalist styling and equally slick contemporary fit that has gotten a bit easier in recent seasons, while still maintaining its polished and trim appearance. This simple black silk shell has all the detail at the bottom with a fringe edge that will be just as chic this Spring season as it is now, and a hem that has a side slit. It is longer in the back covering your bottom and giving you lots of options for what to wear with it. Skinny pants, stylish leggings, even loose fitting trousers (especially if you’re taller) will work. For now, you can also wear a simple cardigan over it and let the fringe detail hang out from the bottom.

Vince is a favorite brand of ours (and yours) with a timeless aesthetic and easy fit that is simply a steal on sale. While their prices are worth the investment at full price, this layered tee’s sale price won’t make you think twice. The fabric has a beautiful drape to it, stepping it up from a basic cotton tee and the best part? The white inner layer. Not only does it look good, you don’t have to worry about the neckline being too low or the fabric potentially being shear. Your styling is done – just add your favorite weekend bottoms.
Joie - Porsha Tweedy Zip Front Wool Cardigan
Joie’s universally flattering modern fit and versatile designs have made us big fans over the years, and this tweedy cardigan will get a lot of wear. It has the comfort and give of a knit sweater with the look of a tweedy, fringe-trimmed blazer (think Chanel). It has a very subtle metallic threading throughout that makes it a perfect companion to your dark or coated jeans, black pants, or simple sheath dress for a night out – and is still perfectly appropriate in any office that isn’t too conservative. It looks great with any round, scoop or turtleneck underneath, and you can even do a simple white or denim button down. With sizes selling down so quickly, this version is also a great option – especially for Spring.
