Shopbop is offering up to 25% off almost everything with the code SPRING. The sale goes from today through Sunday night, and it’s full of great everyday pieces. (I found my go-to work dress there three years ago.) Here are a few pretty picks…

What are you eyeing for the spring? I’m into everyday basics, like this and these. (Also, money no object: these gorgeous shoes!) Shop the full sale here, if you’d like.

P.S. Seven things I’ve worn a million times, and a French bra trick.

    There is no FTC disclosure mentioned BEFORE your first affiliate links appear. This is the law, COJ! You wrote your disclosure at the end. The disclosure must be written clearly and at the beginning. I do this as a living and the government cracks down on this, especially high-profile, profitable blogs and sites. Please protect yourself! I love COJ and don’t want to see anyone come after you about this! https://www.ftc.gov/tips-advice/business-center/guidance/ftcs-endorsement-guides-what-people-are-asking

    Joanna, I have a shopping related request. I’m attending 5 weddings this summer (more in the fall gah!!!!), and I do not have anything to wear. I’ll be seeing a lot of the same people at some of the weddings, and I’ll be going to rehearsal dinners and bachelorette parties for many of them as well. I can get away with re-wearing some pieces, but I’ll have to be creative about it. I cook for a living (read: low-wage restaurant work), but all my friends from college work in finance and the like. I’m asking for your guidance in the impossible: help me find expensive-looking wedding outfits that I can secretly re-wear, that won’t cost more than my car. I’ve been looking at sites like Reformation, but I can’t tell what will be flattering, nor if the items are flimsy.

      I would also try Poshmark/eBay when you’re familiar with brand sizing and can compare dimensions with an actual dress you own – Lots of $5 pretty dresses out there!

      I was at a wedding this winter, and a guest was wearing a simple but great fitting black, sleeveless jumpsuit with leopard heels. It looked so simple and elegant on her that I want to recreate and wear to all my formal (and not so formal) events. You can change shoes and/or accessories to switch it up. Throw on a jean jacket for a bachelorette party or a wrap for a fall wedding. Might not be your thing, but I’m excited to try it out and thought I would share!

      Check out resale sites like Poshmark and mash that ‘offer’ button. I haven’t purchased anything new in years and you can find beautiful, high-dollar items for a steal.

      Get a solid-colored dress that you can change the vibe of with a belt or scarf. Don’t be shy about borrowing dresses from your friends (I borrowed an inauguration gala dress years ago from a friend who was so happy to see it reworn.) I have a floor-length black satin skirt that is dramatic and mixes with any top. Oh, and Poshmark has amazing deals (like $40 for $200 dresses). Enjoy the summer – and if your friends get rude about seeing repeat outfits, get new friends <3

      I’ve had great luck getting dressed on thredup— then you can sell it back and get a little of the cost back. I’ve found thredup prices tend to be lower than posh mark for the same pieces.

    I love everything in all the thumbnails! But several are already sold out.
    I’ll second Eloise’s comment above: “Boo for my wardrobe, yay for my wallet.”

    Cardigan is out of stock. Boo for my wardrobe, yay for my wallet.

    Hi Joanna – the 25% off is only if you spend $800+!!! Perhaps you should add a note to the post to make that clear :)

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      thank you! yes it’s “up to 25%” — otherwise 15% over $200 and 20% over $500.
