help me i’m poor: sales and steals of the month (of december)

I bring you this unexpected evening post with good tidings, lots of cocoa in my belly, and news of things that are on sale. These sales have expiration dates so hurryyyyyy if you want these things. The J.Crew one comes first because the sale stops at 12:01AM EST AKA NINE PM OUT HERE.

[Update: the sale just added more things, it didn’t actually end. You may proceed.]


The Crew is offering an additional 30-40% off “Cold Weather” wear + free shipping. They always have some kind of sale going on: here are some of my selects from the bunch. Make sure you enter GIFTNOW at checkout to see the final prices.

If you’re looking for a classic peacoat, with the final-sale additional 50% off, this one comes to $100 and the petite version comes to $75. This is a REALLY good deal if you don’t have a peacoat! J.Crew has been running a tad big lately, I’ve been a 000 in everything and I’m not that tiny. I’m most likely going to get one of these after I decide on a color. This sweet water-resistant jacket is also on mega clearance, down to somewhere around $65 with the promo code.

The Classic Pavé Link Bracelet has been on my wish list since college, and it’s currently on sale from $125 to $87. It’s sparkly, gold, and would be a stunner of a Christmas gift for a lady on your list, or a nice treat to yourself.

This Tunic Sweater is $47 from $100. I prefer the longer sweaters at J.Crew since I’m a little petite; for whatever reason, the shorter, more cropped silhouette makes me look shorter.

Lastly, remember the Chateau Parka? Turns out J.Crew Factory has an identical version for way less… check it out here.


BB_AnthroSaleDecemberIt’s 40% off all sweaters at Anthro right now! I love this tie-front turtleneck, it’s a subtle but cool twist on a classic turtleneck; with the sale price, it’s $60. I also am really interested in this Suri Cableknit because the knitting design is so interesting, but I feel like it might be a little short waisted. Awesome color, though. Wish I could say I liked this striped pullover, but the fact that it is misaligned really upsets me. I have no idea why but it makes me angry.

Aside from their sweater sale, they have a ton of under $20 gifts and goodies that I’m allllll about.

These pink stance socks would make my year, astrology ring dishes are under $15 and a sweet personal gift, and there isn’t a person on this earth who hates the smell of Anthropologie, so this $12 mini candle would be an awesome stocking stuffer.

If you’ve looked at a blog in the past two years, or opened instagram, you’ve seen these Gold Monogram Mugs that Anthro releases at Christmastime. They’re $7.50 rn which is 25% off and cheap af! If you’re reading this and you love me, I will take one with any of my initials on it. Please and thank you. And what good would a mug be without THESE ADORABLE GINGERBREAD HOUSES FOR YOUR COCOA?!?!? Lastly, if you’re just in the mood to buy something for yourself, get these fleece-lined leggings because they’re under $20 and probably the coziest.


A few sprinklings of sale items, including the price matching on the Rebecca Minkoff Micro Moto Satchel (originally $200, now $165) and BASICALLY ALL LAURA MERCIER MAKEUP. Get yourself a body scrub, or stock up on the best tinted moisturizer to ever exist. I also love the metallic creme eye colour (I have it in gold).

The leather jacket of my dreams is on sale for 15% off, so I still can’t afford it, but hey. It’s on sale. There’s the dark grey version at Neiman Marcus but it’s the devil’s price so nothing good could come of that. The brown one is also at Nordstrom for about 40% off.

The Classic Short UGG boot is also on sale (I have these in Sand and wear them more than I’d like to admit) from $155 to $130. They don’t often go on sale so snatch a pair while you can.

Go check out those sales if you’ve put off your shopping to the last minute (very much like myself) and have some very-budgeted catching up to do. Also go check them out if you know that Santa is skipping your house this year because you weren’t that nice, #treatyoself. And remember friends: never pay full price. THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY.
