What I Bought & Sizing Tips from the #NSale

Alright, so I've finally sifted through my orders and have figured out for the most part what I'm keeping and what I'm sending back. I think there is a wide variety of items in this years #NSale to give a little extra life to your wardrobe if you need. I usually find some good basics in BP but this year I didn't care too much for their quality and cut. The Caslon brand really won in my opinion this year as you'll notice that a lot of what I bought is from that department. 

If there is one thing you should get from the sale it's got to be the BLANKNYC drape jacket (see below). It's so versatile and also a perfect layering piece especially if you need some help concealing your self-defense tool.

 

BP. Raw Edge Scoop Neck Tee


#NSale Price: $17.90 | Reg Price: $25.00

Each year I usually pick up some basics from this sale, which includes the long sleeve tops from BP. I end up wearing them repeatedly all fall/winter long. So I was looking forward to replacing a few from a couple years ago. Sadly, this top is not doing it for me. I love the raw finished edges but personally the cut and length are off to me. I wish it was a tad longer in length. However, paired with high-waisted jeans the length is perfect. Personally, I'm returning this one and I just ordered this one instead. 

Wearing: XS | Fit: Loose Fit, Size Down
Color Options: Multiple
Verdict: Return

 
 

BLANKNYC Cloud Nine Drape Jacket


#NSale Price: $59.90 | Reg Price: $90.00

Oh you know I love a good draped/waterfall jacket and this one is a faux suede and feels so good. You can wear it open so it waterfalls down the front or use the snap on the collar to wear it draped.

Wearing: XS | Fit: Due to it's drapey nature, I went down two sizes and it's still comfortable in the sleeves.
Color Options: Black, Merlot/Wine (beautiful for Fall), Taupe
Verdict: Keep

 

 
 

Treasure & Bond Plaid Boyfriend Shirt


#NSale Price: $45.90 | Reg Price: $69.00

You can't go into fall without having some plaid in your wardrobe. There are plenty plaid button down options available this #NSale and I did try other options (this one and this one) but ultimately fell in love with this one. It's super soft and fits so easily on buttoned up, worn open, or around the waist. Also, at this price point it's the best of all three considering fit and quality.

Wearing: XS | Fit: Boyfriend style so it runs large, size down.
Comes In: Ivory (the color I bought), Yellow, Blue, Burgundy
Verdict: Keep

 
 

Trouve Side Slit Sweater

#NSale Price: $45.90 | Reg Price: $69.00

I have this sweater in black from the sale a few years ago (worn in this post). This one is much better in my opinion. It has a more looser fit to it than the previous version and it's not-itchy which is a win in my book and makes it super comfy.

I would wear this with a tank underneath when carrying concealed to help reduce any printing since the sweater tends to drape a bit in the front.

Wearing: XS | Fit: Size Down
Color Options: Multiple Colors
Verdict: Keep

 
 

Caslon Utility Jacket

#NSale Price: $49.90 | Reg Price: $79.00

I really don't need another camo utility jacket but I couldn't resist the braiding detail on the pocket. As with most utility style jackets, it's not the softest and not lined but it's still comfortable. I also really love the length of this one.  If you're over camo, you can get it in the standard solid green color. 

 Wearing: XS | Fit: I found this to run big so I sized down
Color Options: Camo Print and Solid Green
Verdict: Keep

Caslon Draped Utility Jacket

#NSale Price: $45.90 | Reg Price: $69.00

I'm doing my best to try not to keep this jacket in grey. I have a very similar version in green (worn here and here) that I love so much. It's lightweight and a great layering piece for Fall or Spring. What I like about this version is that it has an interior drawstring so you can tighten in at the waist to give it a more fitted look.

Wearing: XS | Fit: Size Down
Color Options: Grey or Green
Verdict: Undecided

 
 

Caslon Rounded Neck Tee

#NSale Price: $17.90 | Reg Price: $25.00

This is the basic you definitely want to stock up on. Just as BP. makes their short sleeve version (like the long sleeve above) this one is so much better in terms of fit and quality. Believe it or not I got the multi-color striped one as well as classic black, white and grey.

Wearing: S | Fit: True-to-size. If you want a slimmer fit then size down or for a more boyfriend fit size up.
Color Options: Multiple Solid Colors & Prints
Verdict: Keep

Caslon Twist Front Shirt


#NSale Price: $25.90 | Reg Price: $39.00

I have this top in the short sleeve version in black and love it (worn here) so when I saw this striped option it was a done deal.

Wearing: S | Fit:True-to-Size
Color Options: Multiple Colors

Verdict: Keep

 
 

1.State Studded Ankle Bootie


#NSale Price: $99.90 | Reg Price: $149.95

This boot is so cute and the heel height is such a good height for all day wear. The studded detail adds some edge without being so in your face. Also the height of the shaft of the boot hits at such a flattering spot on the ankle so they will look cute paired with shorts or a skirt. Perfect for those outdoor festivals. While these run true-to-size, I bought an 8. I normally wear an 8.5. They felt a tad big but more so the gap between my ankle and the boot was too large for my liking so I sized down.

Wearing: 8 | Fit: True-to-size; see comments above
Color Options: Black Leather, Red Leather, White Leather, Charcoal Suede (the color I got)
Verdict: Keep

 
 

Vince Camuto Bootie


#NSale Price: $99.90 | Reg Price: $149.95

I love the western vibe this boot has; it might be hard to see in the black but you can see the detail in the camel. It's very reminiscent of a Saint Laurent bootie. 

Wearing: 8.5 | Fit: True-to-size
Color Options: White Leather, Black Suede, Taupe Suede, and Camel Suede
Verdict: Undecided

 
 

Treasure & Bond Stripe Cardigan

#NSale Price: $52.90 | Reg Price: $79.00

The verdict is still out on this one for me on if I'm going to keep it. I really like it and it would be a cute option for work or play. It's a lightweight cardigan that runs pretty big. I'm all about neutrals and love this grey and the additional stripes add a little collegiate flair. 

Wearing: XS | Fit: Size Down
Color Options: Grey, Navy, Tan
Verdict: Undecided

BP. Hooded Cardigan

#NSale Price: $45.90 | Reg Price: $69.00

I'm a sucker for a good cardigan. I'm building up a pretty good collection. Thanks to this sale over the years and perpetually being cold. LOL. This cardigan is easy, cozy, and I love the hood. Perfect for layering and staying warm.

Wearing: M | Fit: Runs Small
Color Options: Beige, Black
Verdict: Keep

 
 

AG Jeans Legging Ripped Ankle & AG Jeans High-Waisted Skinny


#NSale Price: $149.90 | Reg Price: $225.00

On a premium denim level AG makes some of the comfiest jeans I've owned. I swear by three premium denim brands, AG Jeans, Rag and Bone, and Frame Denim. Every #NSale there are always AG Jeans on sale that usually tend to go pretty fast. So I typically like to snag a pair and try them on at home, compare them with my other jeans, and determine if I want to keep them. Most of my jeans are a light blue wash so adding a dark wash is always good to mix things up. They fit so well and they don't stretch out, which is key. 

Wearing: 28 | Fit: True-to-size
Color Options: Dark Blue
 (only wash for each style)
Verdict: Undecided

 
 

KUT from the Kloth High-Waisted Skinny Jeans


#NSale Price: $59.90 | Reg Price: $89.50

If you've been looking for a faded black jean at an affordable price point these are the ones to get. They fit well but aren't as soft as premium denim but still a great option. I love the frayed hem. I ended up returning these because they look basically just like my Rag and Bone jeans (worn here).

Wearing: 6 | Fit: True-to-size
Color Options: Faded Black
Verdict: Return

Topshop High-Waisted Step Hem Jeans


#NSale Price: $49.90 | Reg Price: $75.00

These are such a great high-waisted jean. I have a pair in grey (worn here) and they are super comfy. The dark wash makes them perfect for dressing up and I can't wait to start wearing these. The step hem looks great with flats, ankle booties, and heels. 

Wearing: W30 | Fit: True-to-size
Color Options: Dark Blue
Verdict: Keep

 

All in all I think I picked up some good basics and few pieces to enhance my current wardrobe for this Fall/Winter season. The #NSale opens to the public tomorrow and it looks like they have restocked sizes and items that have sold out.
