A smattering of sales, launches, and newsworthy discoveries this Thursday:

+Sezane released its chic “Le Crop” jeans in a really fab tomato red color. I am obsessed with the idea of red jeans ever since I saw Courtney Grow in this outfit. I own Le Crops from Sezane in a different wash — super fun / chic / different, but size up! While you’re at Sezane, this $160 raffia crossbody is giving major Loewe-meets-Mansur-Gavriel vibes at a great pricepoint.

+Amazon is running a “Big Spring Sale,” and I was delighted to see Avene’s Cicalfate cream (seen above) was included. This was a Magpie reader rec many times over and I completely used up my first tube, so took advantage of the sale to re-up. It’s a wonder cream if skin is dry / irritated — it nursed my skin back to life when I’d dried it out trying to use a retinol cream. I linked a few other great finds that are a part of the spring sale here, including my favorite inexpensive leggings and this power washer, which would be a great buy while on sale — blast all of winter / cobwebs / debris off of your kids’ bikes, your outdoor rugs, etc! I’m beginning to think ahead to summer…


+Calpak just released its popular Luna bag in several chic new colors. I saw a chic pea carrying one of these in a great blue color at the airport on the way back from Tulum — it seemed so practical yet attractive! I’ve also heard it’s great as a gym bag / diaper bag.

+Dorsey just released all of its chic cocktail rings in gold settings! I have this stunner in the sterling silver (you can see it in the top photo here), and it is a really fab piece to pull out for the evening. I’m also newly intrigued by these “Lucien earrings” that just became available for pre-order — apparently they sell out every time they become available. Finally, this pretty station bracelet that has been out of stock forever is available for pre-order and shipping in early April. I think this would be such a gorgeous gift for a Maid of Honor. I feel like it goes with absolutely anyone’s style — classic, feminine, edgy, etc!

+Parterre just released a gorgeous limited collection of skirts and dresses — I love the pattern on this skirt.

+I just spent way too much searching for all-white (including white sole) tennis shoes for my daughter — a requirement where she’ll be taking lessons this spring — and polled several mom friends with tennis-playing children and the options are hideous! I ended up reordering these under-$30 ones from last summer in the size up. (Kids can slip into them and velcro closed on the top themselves — neither of my children can yet tie their shoes! My children also really liked these shoes from tennis camp last summer and I notice that they really stabilize the foot well.) I was torn between these Asics and the less expensive Amazon ones and decided they were probably a toss up, so went for the pair almost $20 cheaper! If anyone has a better choice, LMK! I’ve also been snapping up tennis whites for the children — J. Crew is a surprisingly good source for this gear. My son loves these “active” shorts (available in white) so I got some of those and these performance white polos — at the time of writing, both are 50% off. I also got my daughter these shorts and this half-zip to supplement a few tennis skirts / polos / dresses we have from last summer that still fit.

+Last but not least, a few diamonds in the rough in the kids section of the Saks Friends & Family sale: a Lacoste polo dress for your little lady, Ralph Lauren linen oxfords and flat front shorts for your wee man, and the sweetest little bikini, under $30, down from almost $80!

P.S. How do you fill your cup in under an hour?

P.P.S. Leave the door ajar for joy.

P.P.P.S. Still time to shop for Easter, but we’re coming down to the wire!

  1. I stumbled upon a LeSet sample sale while in NYC this week! I got the white short sleeve pointelle for $30! I thought of you…

For their last bday I gave them initial necklaces and they went nuts :). I’m usually good with this but I’m blank this time! Thank you!! Xo
