Don't Miss This Week: Make the Best of Summer's Final Month
I hate to be the one to spell this out for you, but we’re making our way into the opening days of summer’s final month. It seems like just yesterday that we were stocking up on cute dresses and sexy swimwear during warm weather sales, prepping our wardrobe for our summer vacations and backyard barbeques. But now, here we are, living the dreaded inevitable when stores begin to decorate their sale floors with cable knit sweaters, dark denim, and tall leather boots. All good things must come to an end, so let’s make the best of it. Indulge this week and purchase yourself your last summer outfit for the season and flaunt it during the weekend getaway to the beach that I urge you to treat yourself to, no exceptions. This week, pack up your weekender bag with goods from Michael C. Fina, James Coviello, and Velita.
Michael C. Fina Jewelry Sample Sale
Let’s do things backwards this week and revolve our weekend outfit around a gorgeous piece of jewelry. Wednesday marks the start of the Michael C. Fina Sample Sale that will dazzle you with diamonds galore. The fine jewelry sale will feature both modern and vintage earrings, bracelets, rings, and necklaces in various gold settings and, of course, platinum and silver for up to 70% off. There will also be a deeply discounted sale on engagement rings if you’d like to leave the sale listing open on your laptop, since there’s no better time to propose than during a romantic weekend summer getaway, just saying ;).
Velita Sample Sale
Now that you’re blinged out, lug your rocks downtown to the Velita Sample Sale in SoHo. Velita is only a three year old brand, but their chic clothing proves effortless and stunning, especially thanks to their super cute bow accents. For up to 70% off, Velita’s silk skirts and cream blouses will be the perfect match to your new gold jewelry.
James Coviello Clothing
For a night out on the town, rock your new platinum duds and pick up an outfit from James Coviello during his Thursday Sample Sale. Coviello’s funks dresses and cool, casual tank tops are the perfect toss in for an after dinner drink on Saturday, celebrating your last official night at the beach. Plus, you want to look good too in the event your man spotted the listing for the Michael C. Fina Sample Sale open on your desktop. Just don’t let on you know where your giant rock is from, this way he’ll be able to keep his sample sale pride and you’ll be able to keep your vibrantly beautiful engagement ring.
August is meant to be the month where you jam pack in all the daytrips and weekend getaways that you didn’t get to go on in June and July. So gear up with designer wear, arm your wrists with stunning new bracelets, pack up your car (or ZipCar, for us New Yorkers) and head to the beach in order to soak up the sun and summer’s final days, all while looking fabulous.
