It's back! Boden credit for a discount on Gilt and RueLaLa

I have been meaning to get back to blogging but it is always somehow the thing that gets pushed lower on my to do list. But all is well here. I am on my very first sabbatical from teaching as a tenured faculty member and I am trying my best to meet my ambitious writing goals while giving myself some room to relax.

Yesterday, Gilt and Ruelala brought back one of the things that brought me to Boden in the first place... the opportunity to purchase account credit (akin to a gift card!) for less than the sticker price. You can stack this with 25% off savings (with code LTK2) to really do well for yourself. Boden Summer Preview is also live and you can save 25% (code: TJ9K) on top of using the voucher there.

Either of these result in prices that you would expect to find at the end of December, and not well before Thanksgiving. Last check, Gilt was sold out of the highest amount ($110 for $175 in credit) but Ruelala still has all options in stock. Be sure to read the fine print (though Boden tends to be more lax about their policies in practice). Happy Shopping!

Boden Sample Sale in Pittsburgh!

Save the date for a Boden Sample Sale in Pittsburgh (newly added to the calendar after the Hershey one fell through!) on Saturday, June 8th at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, downtown! From 10am-4pm. Register here for a $5 off coupon!

The last few sales have featured adorable and useful canvas bags as gifts with purchase! I use mine (shown above) all the time!! I'm not sure if this upcoming sale will have them but it was a great surprise and made the discounted purchases even more worthwhile.

I've written about the sale extensively before. It's very worthwhile for any Boden fans of their women's line. They often also have Baby Boden, Mini Boden, and Johnny B. They have a huge table of shoes and some accessories too. In the past they have had menswear though it has been years since the sale has featured much for men. My tips and tricks for the sale are included here and a price list is here. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about it. I will be helping to set up the sale the day prior and I will be there all day on Saturday so be sure to say hello if you go!

Red for Valentine's Day

Marc by Marc Jacobs Red Dress

From December through February a nice red dress becomes my wardrobe workhorse. This is why I was excited especially to find a long lost Marc by Marc Jacobs "dress that got away." The particular dress shown above was called the Mareika Tulip dress, originally released in fall 2013. I bought this one in purple so I knew what size I would want to track down if I was ever able to locate the red version. The red Mareika sold out swiftly when it was first released and because I wait for sales, I never got one. So I was thrilled to track it down after all these years on eBay for a great price. I wore it on Christmas Eve and for teaching during the week of the Lunar New Year. I am also planning to wear it this weekend for Valentine's Day dinner with family. Since there are so many themed occasions when a bright red dress is handy, I am glad to add it to my wardrobe.
