Insomniac Sale Picks: Crossbody Bags

*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?*

Marie requested a few picks for crossbody bags, so here we go:

2670254-p-MULTIVIEW

Aldo Minturno – was $50, now $34.99

I love everything about this bag from the warm color to the zipper details to the simple flap closure. If you look closely, you’ll see that the top flap has a zipper along its edge, too. This bag is vegan-friendly and fairly large at 12.75″ x 4″ x 9.5″ with a 22″ strap drop. Also comes in black. This bag has similar design features but is made from leather and comes in seven great colors.

scarleton crossbody bag

Scarleton Accent Strap Flap Crossbody – was $53.98, now $25.99

Another great looking faux leather option with a simple, pared-down design. The top flap is held in place with a magnet closure, but there’s also a zipper inside for extra security. This bag seems smallish but is actually fairly deep, measuring in at 10.3″ x 8.7″ x 4.8″ with a 21.5″ strap drop. Also available in cognac or black.

2776904-p-MULTIVIEW

Lucky Brand Beckham B Tote – was $188, now $74.99

OK, so we’re heavy on flap crossbodies tonight. I feel like they are more contemporary looking than many zip tops, and easier to deal with. And this one is convertible to a tall tote shape!  A nice medium-sized bag at 11.5″ x 2″ x 12″ with a 17″ strap drop. Also available in cream leather via the link above, or cognac, tan, or black here for $63.97 – $111.86.

latico doyle

Latico Leathers Doyle Satchel – was $148.99, now $89.99 – $100.99

My black crossbody has a top handle in addition to the long strap, and I’ve come to absolutely adore this design feature. The bag above also has a handheld handle up top, and a long crossbody strap. In addition to this gray and another gray version that lacks the push-button closure, this bag comes in salmon, tan, teal, mustard, turquoise, rose, and orange leather. 12″ x 9.5″ x 3″ with a 24.5″ strap drop.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for crossbody bags:

  1. eBags – More than 1,400 options, including lightweight and vegan. This two-tone Fossil zip-top is incredibly cute.
  2. Amazon – More than 8,000 options, including some designer picks like this classic Kate Spade.
  3. Hobo International – In my opinion, some of the classiest crossbodies around. Love this weathered red Lorna bag.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Office-appropriate Ankle Pants

*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?*

Jessica requested a few picks for office-appropriate ankle pants, so here we go:

bistro

Boden Bistro Crop Trouser – was $138, now $59.84 – $117.30
with code H4F4

Boden has been doing this crop for several years running, and each season brings a new batch of colors and patterns. This fall, we’ve got a couple of plaids, polka dots, a floral, dark leopard print, five solids, and this subtle metallic jacquard. Fiber content varies by color, so do peek at the “Details” tab. Available in sizes 2 – 18, including some long lengths. Also in petite 2P -10P. JCPenney has a variety of colors and prints in sizes 16W – 24W.

nic zoe

Nic + Zoe Silvia Perfect Pant – was $118, now $29.99 – $36.99

Jessica specifically mentioned that skin-tight ankle pants are right out, and this pair features more of a straight-leg style. They’re a rayon/cotton blend, so hopefully fairly wrinkle-resistant. And I love the clean front, pocketless styling. Available in this red as well as tan, khaki, black, and mint green in sizes 2 – 16. Size availability varies by color. For another straight-leg option, this Charter Club pair comes in ivory and navy. This style is a little slimmer but comes in a similar array of colors in sizes 14W – 26W.

ck ankle pant Calvin Klein Women’s Slim-Fit Suit Pant- was $89, now $59.93

This shape is my favorite: Not too skinny, but a little slimmer than a straight- leg. This is a poly/rayon blend, so not wool suiting, but should have some give to it and a nice hand. And another pocketless front for a smooth fit. Available in sizes 2 – 14. This similar pair is available in 14W – 24W.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for office-appropriate ankle pants:

  1. J.Crew – The vast majority of styles offered are cropped or ankle length. The cult-favorite Minnie is probably a bit tight for more conservative offices, but the slim styles offer a looser fit.
  2. Loft – Prints and solids in regular, petite, and tall lengths. This plaid pair comes in three cuts so you can pick a style that works with your curves.
  3. Piperlime – Check the “trouser” section for cropped pants in slim, wide, pleated, and flat styles. I’m very tempted by these slouchy stretch wool ankle pants.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Fun Plus Size Leggings

*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?*

Amanda requested a few picks for fun plus size leggings, so here we go:

lane bryant ponte

Lane Bryant Ponte Skinny with Studs – was $69.95, now $41.97

I love these a whole bunch. They may be ponte skinnies instead of actual leggings, but in my book that makes them an even better bet. Thicker material means they’ll be warm through the whole winter! I love how they’re styled here with black ankle boots – edgy and modern. Available in sizes 14 – 28. These similar studded leggings come in sizes XS – XL. Like the tough look but want something more subtle? These pleather panel leggings are pretty fabulous, too.

shosho leggings

ShoSho Women’s Print Legging  – was $14.99, now $4.49 – $9.95

So a few of these are available sized – XL – XXXXL – but most of the fun prints are one size. which makes me leery. But they’ve gotten some rave reviews from plus size women who had the same hesitations I did, and were pleasantly surprised. For the price, I wouldn’t expect these to last more than a couple of years and be advised that they’re polyester, not cotton. But if you’re looking for funky patterns, these are great. Zebra stripes, alphabet print, scrollwork, chevrons, florals, and more – 21 prints and 3 solids in all. ShoSho also makes regular size leggings.

animal print plus size leggings

Style&co. Plus Size Animal-Print Legging – was $21.98, now $13.99

Animal-print leggings may call Peg Bundy to mind, but this print is classy and subtle. Naturally, these will pair beautifully with black, but also try them with burgundy, olive, white, or denim. Available in 0X – 3X. Also in petites. A bit higher contrast, but these animal print leggings come in XS – XL.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for fun plus size leggings:

  1. Amazon – Many options are “one size” so do check customer reviews, but there are dozens of funky patterns. These black and white plaid ones are such fun.
  2. Torrid – Everything from crushed velvet to moto.
  3. Modcloth – Just a handful of styles right now, but Modcloth gets new products daily. Includes prints and zipper/hardware detailed pairs.
  4. Nordstrom – More on the “tough” side of fun, but lots of leather panels and dark prints. Love this subtly embossed pair.
