La Garconne, the New York-based site for understated style and designer goods from the likes of Acne Studios, Kenzo, Proenza Schouler, Suno, Isabel Marant, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and more, just launched a 40% off sale. And if your mind is hyper-focused on the immediate like ours are, you're thinking one thing: How many holiday outfits can I get out of this? We got three, but there are so many more to be had. Do note that items aren't bargain-basement cheap, but if you had your eye on that Alexander Wang shoulder bag, for example, now might be the time to bite. Also, set aside a good hour for going down the rabbit hole. The sale section is huge and worth it.
(1) Bound chiffon tee by Jasmin Shokrian, $167 (was $334); (2) Shirley mesh ankle boot via 3.1 Phillip Lim, $347.50 (was $695); (3) Shadow pencil trouser by 3.1 Phillip Lim, $142.50 (were $475); (4) 3d folding bag by Bless, $232 (was $464); (5) Rafia jacket by Carven, $595 (was $1,190)
The warm-up outfit: You're starting to get into the holiday spirit with office parties and the like, so you go for a more minimal, professional look. And since your feel aren't killing you yet, go ahead with the killer heel.
(1) Tiger heads embroidered dress by Kenzo, $693 (was $990); (2) Shoulder bag by Kenzo, $510.30 (was $729); (3) Glitter oxford by Maison Martin Margiela, $367 (was $735)
The peak festivity outfit: Your holiday cheer is at an all time high which you express through sparkle on the bottom, print on top, and festive all over (plus a flat for dancing all. night. long.) You should probably do a read lip too.
(1) Oversized multi zip sweatshirt by 3.1 Phillip Lim, $367.50 (was $525); (2) Rafia short by Carven, $186 (was $620); (3) Lunch bag clutch by Proenza Schouler $682.50 (was $975); (4) Iza suede wedge by Alexander Wang, $367.50 (were $525)
The final countdown outfit: It's the end of the party circuit and you're tired, but jolly, if not only around the waistline. Tailored shorts with a sweatshirt and non-heel heels is a comfy antidote to the final sprint exhaustion. BYOH (Bring your own hosiery).
