Winter is coming – so is a big sale

I have no shame anymore, after living in San Francisco for 7 years, admitting that I get cold easily. I take a jacket EVERYWHERE! So as every Winter approaches, I take time to analyze the coats I’ve been wearing and those I have not. Some don’t fit anymore, some have gone out of style, some are just so worn after a winters wear, that they really aren’t good to wear another year!

So I was daydreaming over at Shopbop the other day when I got the good news that a sale is starting! This retailer is one of the few sponsors I do accept because of their commitment to carry, feature, and mention brands that are made in the USA – unlike a vast majority of e-retailers, that do not mark where the clothing they sell is made, nor what country they came from. Which is why you see something marked as “imported” on other websites. That’s unacceptable and lazy! So I will sing the praises of Shopbop any day 🙂 And look at all these awesome coats I found – just a few of the many! Outerwear that is made in the USA is more difficult to find than clothing (but probably easier that Made in USA shoes) because of the materials used. But this is good too because it means that while more expensive, most items are made of greater quality cotton and wool! Instead of synthetic polyesters.

These tiered sales are just amazing, take full advantage of building of your Winter wardrobe!!

Find me on Poshmark

Let it be known, 2017 is the year I really decided to simplify my life. I feel like I donated about 1/4 of my home goods. Clearing out the clutter lifted a weight off my shoulders that I cannot explain. I got rid of belongings that complicated my home and disturbed my peace.

Now, I have to face the fact that I have to make room in my closets too. So I’m turning to Poshmark to sell my things! And hey, maybe you want to take a look 🙂 Or maybe you sell on Poshmark too? Send me a note to follow you. I’m ready to send these things from my closet to yours!

Spotlight on: Sea NYC + Shopbop Sale

You’ll be able to follow all of these spotlight posts here, but also keep up with my Made in the USA series here.

I’ve been able to add 2 Sea NYC pieces to my wardrobe (one of which you can see here) and they’re both so delicate and beautiful. It’s exactly how I describe the brand! I have been a fan of the brand for some years now, and I love being able to share it with you all here. I wish I could link all of their collection photos, the fall colors are so rich!

“In 2007, lifelong friends Monica Paolini and Sean Monahan launched Sea from their loft-turned-studio-turned-showroom on Canal Street in NYC. Their thoughtful and vibrant collections emphasize easy-to-wear polished pieces with unique feminine touches and playful twists.”

Sea NYC also happens to be one of the brands available at Shopbop, which is having a big sale until Friday! Click HERE to head on over and look around. Shopbop is one of the few retailers I continue to support because of their endeavors to support brands that are Made in the USA and DO NOT hide where imported items are manufactured in.

Wow, well I didn’t mean to take a break from blogging this long…time sure does have a way of warping itself to make month’s seem like seconds. But this break was necessary to recalibrate what I want to share on here. I’ll get into that much later on another post. I just wanted to say hello and let you all know I’ still here ( 🙂 )

Back in the day, you used to find me selling my clothes on Ebay. I’m not giving it a try over at Poshmark (I’m late to the game, I know.) The fact that I can keep the items up there and listed until sold, really is really useful for me.
