Insomniac Sale Picks: Faux Leather Skirts

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Shevvi requested a few picks for faux leather skirts so here we go:

2315386_fpx

Charter Club Faux Leather Pencil Skirt – was $79, now $33.99
with code SUPER

I found a number of faux leather pencil skirts that hit far above the knee, and another group that seemed super expensive (like this lovely but spendy Lauren one). This sleek skirt has a versatile knee-brushing length and a fabulously low price. Available in sizes 6 – 16. Ann Taylor has a similar one in 0 -14 including petite and talls that’s 40% off with code PARTY40. And this pull-on pencil comes in sizes XS – 3X.

leather midi skirt

NY Collection Faux-Leather Pleated Midi Skirt – was $60, now $35.99

I still can’t resist a full, pleated skirt – even in faux leather. I’m a little puzzled as to why this is classified as a midi, though I suppose at 26″ long it will hit below the knee for some. It’s fully lined and versatile enough to go from funky casual to dressy night-out. Available in sizes 2 -12. This style lacks pleats, but has the same full shape and is available in sizes 1X – 3X.

cognac faux leather skirt

George Simonton Faux Leather Skirt with Pleat Detail – was $53.50, now $48.72

One of the only good-looking non-black faux leather skirt on the market, from what I can tell. (It comes in black, too, but sold out in many sizes.) It’s got a bit of elastic at the back of the waistband for comfort, and is fully lined. Available in this cognac in sizes 6 -28 and black in 6, 8, 26, and 28.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for faux leather skirts:

  1. QVC – Cute options in colors besides black!
  2. Nordstrom – Great variety of styles and price points. In addition to the one above, I ADORE this pleated midi.
  3. Lord & Taylor – Prices vary wildly, but there are affordable picks like this gorgeous CK pencil skirt.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Versatile Oxfords

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Ericka requested a few picks for versatile oxfords so here we go:

 lonnie

Naturalizer Lonnie – was $79, now $59.95

This is a pretty amazing price for a genuine leather oxford, especially one from a brand as beloved as Naturalizer. The pick-stitching gives this style a little flair, but isn’t overly distracting, making these a versatile choice. If you’re not a fan of the contrast, though, they also come in tan and the stitching is much subtler. Available in US sizes 5.5 – 11, including some wide widths. Size availability varies by color.

vegan oxfords

Rocket Dog Jerome – was $54.95, now $38.99

A bit of brogueing gives these some texture, but the classic shape means they’ll work for a variety of outfits. This option is vegan, and a bargain to boot! Available in this burgundy brush-off as well as a dark gray brush-off in US sizes 6 – 11. Size availability varies by color. Looking for a leather brogue? I’m swooning over these Sebago Claremonts.

bass dater

Bass Dater – was $89, now $35.99

These look a little odd in profile, but they’re a classic round-toe oxford shape from the top. (Doubtful anyone will be crouching on the floor to get a side view of your shoes anyway.) And I just love this rich cognac color – strangely hard to find in an oxford. These also come in classic black, and both options are vegan-friendly. Available in US sizes 6 – 11. Size availability varies by color.

born mott

Born Mott – was $110, now $54.99 – $109.95

Oh, believe me, metallics are versatile. Especially subtle, mottled ones like these. But even if this color and finish doesn’t send you, these comfy Borns come in black, brown, tan gray, and three other light colors. Available in US sizes 6 – 11. Size availability varies by color.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for versatile oxfords:

  1. Frye – Cheap, no. Versatile and high-quality, yes. Also check 6pm for past-season styles and colors.
  2. Bass – A classic source for oxfords, brogues, saddle shoes, and all related styles.
  3. DSW – Couldn’t find more than a couple of brands to highlight, but DSW has dozens of cute pairs including these classic brogues.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Elastic Waist Jeans

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Amy requested a few picks for elastic waist jeans that aren’t dowdy so here we go:

lee barely bootcut

Lee Natural Fit Pull-On Demi Barely Bootcut Jean – was $54, now $29.99 – $34.90

So, let me tell you a little something about elastic-waist, pull-on jeans: THEY ARE MARVELOUS. Unless you habitually tuck your top into your jeans, no one will ever know what’s happening in that waistband area. You get none of the bulk of a button and zip, and you are completely comfy. Do not mock until you’ve tried. The Lee Barely Bootcut line is fabulous for those who want a little shaping without a noticeable flare. This style comes in this sanded wash as well as two dark washes and a raw wash in sizes 4 – 18, including some short inseams. Also in petite and plus sizes.

jag pull on straight leg

Jag Jeans Peri Pull-On Straight Leg – was $80, now $46.85 – $75.99

A couple of months back a woman in her late 80s came into the boutique and we started talking denim. She told me she absolutely HATED Jag Jeans because they were so “old lady,” so naturally I had to investigate. I’m an old lady at heart, after all. I’ve ordered a few pairs from Amazon, and been really pleased with the quality, design, and fit. The skinnies aren’t super skinny, but other than that, thumbs up. This straight leg pair comes in this dark wash, a sanded blue, or gray in sizes 2 -16. Also in petite and plus sizes.

liverpool pull on skinnies

Liverpool Sienna Pull-On Legging Jean – was $85.99, now $69

I don’t own any Liverpool jeans myself, but I’ve sold many pairs and they’re good quality. Most are a little low rise for my taste, but this pair – like most pull-ons – has a high rise. Available in this black as well as a dark rinse or whisker wash in sizes 2 – 16, sold out in 8 and 10. Also available in petite. This similar pair is available in sizes 14W – 24W.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for elastic waist jeans:

  1. Jag – Lots of great options in addition to the one above. Includes petite and plus sizes. Also check Nordstrom and 6pm for this brand.
  2. Karen Kane – Mostly the leggings and jeggings are elastic waisted, but there’s also this knit band bootcut pair. Karen Kane also does petites and plus sizes.
  3. Lee – Not a ton on the Lee site itself, but Amazon has more options.
