Sifting Through The Winter Sales

If your cool-weather wardrobe could use a boost to help you get through these last few weeks of winter, it’s worth checking out some of the sales running now. There’s still some good stuff available and marked down substantially.

Eileen Fisher is having an end-of-season sale. I’m very tempted by this long cardigan in the “Blue Spruce” color.

Velvet shawl collar jacket on sale. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This shawl collar velvet jacket is 40% off, and still available in several sizes. (Misses and Petites.)

(Also, a lot of Eileen Fisher pieces on sale at Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s.)

And a couple of random picks to add color and pattern…

Navy embroidered wool coat from Sandro. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

This absolutely stunning navy wool blend coat with floral embroidery is 50% off!

White & Warren striped cashmere scarf. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

Multi-color stripes are so cheerful and a great pick-me-up for grey days. This cashmere travel wrap scarf is 30% off.

Switching over to footwear…


weatherproof riding boot from Aquatalia. Details at une femme d'un certain age.


A classic riding boot that’s weatherproof, and currently 40% off. (Also available in brown.)


waterproof ankle boots from Blondo. Details at une femme d'un certain age.Here’s a cute pair of waterproof ankle boots in a color that will take you into Spring. This mushroom color is 25% off. (These are very well-reviewed too.)

Seeing Clearly…

Motion-sensing lighted makeup mirror. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

In comments on my post about Aging, Identity, And Style, a couple of you mentioned magnifying mirrors. This is the one I use, love that it is cordless/rechargeable, a big plus in our small bathroom.

Sunscreen Follow-Up

Mineral stick sunscreen for outdoor activities. Details at une femme d'un certain age.

While we both found the Coola SPF 50 effective, SIL and I both prefer mineral sunscreens. Mid-week I picked up this mineral stick sunscreen to carry with me and reapply, which was effective and convenient. It does go on a little white/greasy and needs to be rubbed in, but for outdoor activities it’s great.

We’ve been having a great ski week! I’ll post a few more photos tomorrow.

À bientôt!

    I have a couple of those White and Warren travel scarves. If you can pick them up on sale all the better! They’re great for airplane travel or anywhere you may need a wrap. I wear mine over my trench for an extra layer of warmth.

    Just visited the White and Warren web site and a couple of beautiful colors are for sale for $209.00. A rose and iris color are available. Hope that’s helpful also!

    A friend who is an esthetician said that when her sister looked in her mirror she screamed. It was 20x magnification; the sister was used to 5x.
    Sometimes it’s better not to know the details!

      Agreed! I stayed in a hotel once with a really strong magnifying mirror, and I couldn’t tear myself away. It was fascinating and horrifying at the same time!! Better to NOT know…

    I love Eileen Fisher and have scored some great deals watching for sales on Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom sites. I subscribe to and if I tag an item I like, they let me know when and where it goes on sale.

    I love my magnifying mirror and can’t understand why more hotels don’t have them.
