Style Notebook: Jaeger Summer Sale Now On

If you’ve been spending all of your time outside enjoying the great summer weather, you might want to come in for long enough to browse through the Jaeger summer sale.  They have lots of their beautiful clothing and accessories on sale currently with reductions of up to 50%.  As part of my effort to upgrade and improve my wardrobe, I have decided to take advantage of the sale to get myself a few items.  My summer wardrobe could be much nicer, so this is the perfect time to pick up a few key pieces.  They also have a few pieces that are certainly fall or even winter appropriate too, like a beautiful cashmere waterfall cardigan.  But the items in the image below are really the ones that I have my eye on.  I think they’d all be great to pep up my summer clothing choices, and make me seem a bit more pulled together, even when the weather is hot (well, hot for London).

I love the clothing and accessories at Jaeger and have quite a bit of their stuff in my wardrobe.  So, naturally, whenever they have a sale or a special deal on for loyalty card holders, I try to take advantage of it.  And their summer sale is the perfect time for me to get a couple of items to add to my summer wardrobe.  And at a great savings too!

If you’re on the lookout for some great deals, you should check out the Jaeger sale.  I’m not sure when it will end, but I’m guessing it will end by the end of July definitely.  I can never remember how long their big sales like this last.  However, if you’re interested I wouldn’t wait too much longer to check it out or make your purchases before colours and sizes start selling out.  They have 430 clothing items and more than 100 accessories in their sale, so surely there is something that is perfect for you.

Style Notebook: Jaeger Winter Sale Now On

If you’ve been slow getting into all of the post-holiday sales, there are still some great values to be had in the Jaeger winter sale.  They have lots of their beautiful clothing and accessories on sale currently with reductions of up to 50%.  As part of my effort to upgrade and improve my wardrobe, I decided to take advantage of the sale to get myself a few items.  I even got Dave a gorgeous new jumper too.  And of course, I’ve just been browsing and found an item or two that I might consider getting as well while the sale is still on.

I love the clothing and accessories at Jaeger and have quite a bit of their stuff in my wardrobe.  So, naturally, whenever they have a sale or a special deal on for loyalty card holders, I try to take advantage of it.  And their winter sale was the perfect time for me to get a couple of items to add to my winter wardrobe.  And at a great savings too.  I purchased all of the items on the left of the image above and I’m seriously considering getting the cute black and white striped knit dress too.

All in all, I ended up saving quite a bit due to the outstanding winter sale discounts, not to mention another £47.60 from a special deal for loyalty card holders that took an additional 20% off of everything.  Each of the cashmere jumpers were £99.00, representing a discount of £51.00 from their original prices of £150.00 each.  Both of the cashmere jumpers are gorgeous and luxuriously soft.  The cowl neck jumper, the blend of the two jumpers in my image above (the ivory of the one sweater and the cowl neck of the other), is very nice with the cowl neck being quite comfortable and not too tight and constricting.  I love the cashmere jumpers because they are lightweight and not at all bulky, but so warm that they make the perfect winter layer, even for the most unpleasant cold weather.  Dave isn’t really a v-neck fan, but I convinced him that such a nice jumper was worth it and the v-neck isn’t very deep, so it doesn’t bother him but still looks nice with either a t-shirt or a collared shirt underneath it.  The skinny corduroy jeans were originally £99.00 but were reduced to £40.00 in the sale, which I thought was a great deal for such well made trousers.  So, I was pretty pleased with my post-holiday shopping since all of the items I purchased would have originally cost £399.00 (without the £3.95 for shipping) but with the sale and my additional 20% off I was fortunate enough to pay just £194.35, even with the £3.95 charge for delivery.  I like anything that saves me £208.60!!  How can you not like that savings?

And all of that savings has me eyeing the nice black and white knit dress.  It was originally £180.00 but now it is just £80.00.  It is very tempting.  I like the knit dresses for winter because I can wear them over tights or leggings for a fairly effortless, but stylish look.  It would go perfectly with my black knee high or ankle boots too.  I think I’m talking myself into this the more I type. LOL

If you’re on the lookout for some great deals, you should check out the Jaeger sale.  I’m not sure when it will end, but I’m guessing it will end by month’s end since they are saying that they are having final reductions now.  So, if you’re interested I wouldn’t wait too much longer to check it out or make your purchases.

Style Notebook: September 13, 2013

So, this week, I took a shortcut to creating my style notebook entry.  I received an email from Jaeger this morning with a couple of outfits based around their new trench.  I really like the trench because of its very tailored styling and the nice detailing in the houndstooth fabric; makes it a little more fun and not so plain.

I like the red jumper in the more casual look.  Doesn’t it looks perfect with that bag?  The only thing I might switch, would be to exchange the scarf that they have with another one that I found on their site.  They have a scarf with a digital print of Jaeger’s Regent’s Street store on it that is so much fun, I’m trying to come up with a reason why I need to buy it.  And I think it would look great with either the black dress or the casual outfit with jeans and a jumper.  As an added bonus, the Regent’s Street printed scarf is about half the price at £85.00.

I have a £30.00 loyalty voucher for Jaeger that I need to spend by mid-November, so maybe I should put it towards the scarf.  And just think how great it would look with the blue suede Lanvin boots too.

I’ve decided that I’m going to try putting outfits together digitally for a while and then I’ll slowly start feeling more confident and be able to do it in real life, I think.  At least I hope so.  Besides, it is much cheaper this way!

I want to be stylish, I really do, but it doesn’t come naturally to me at all. Historically, I’ve gone for the more practical clothing or kind of sporty looking things, and few accessories. I’m not trendy, I never will be, and I don’t really want to have that kind of look. I like classic styles and good tailoring; those are always the things that I am attracted to in stores. I think that’s probably the best direction for my style to move in too because it works the best with my body shape, as well. I really want to work on cultivating some sort of style that doesn’t scream hiking chic but is evocative of Audrey Hepburn or Lauren Becall. Of course, the hard part is that I am not really sure how to go about getting some style into my wardrobe.  I figure if I play around with putting things together here, it will become second nature to me to think of outfits this way.

The point of this isn’t that I’m necessarily going to buy any of this, but rather I just want to try to get some type of look going that I might actually wear.  Just for fun though, if I were going to buy this stuff here is what it would cost:

Wow, casually elegant has a high price tag.  Clearly though, all of the more expensive pieces are things that you could find lower cost versions of too. Though I must say I love love love those Lanvin ankle boots.  Of course, I know that you can buy lots of ankle boots in black suede for probably 1/7th of the price of those.  But aren’t they lovely?  The only piece that I’m not sure would actually work with this outfit is the scarf because it might just seem like too much going on and detract from the look that I want.  It’s certainly something that in real life I would probably put it on and take it off a few times before I decided one way or the other.

So, what do you think?  Did I succeed in getting a casually elegant look that is actually wearable?
