While you likely spent most of December shopping for loved ones, you should spend January — the start of post-holiday sales season — picking up a little something for yourself. We found lots of deep discounts on upgrades for your home, wardrobe, and makeup bag in today’s sale-bin sweep, including an affordable, elegant dresser, a technical backpack for climbing and commuting, and a cult-favorite Vitamin C serum.
After scrolling through page after page (after page) to help my partner find a new dresser, we finally settled on this under-$200 one. I really like its modest height and not-too-orange stain. Plus, it doesn’t scream faux mid-century modern like a lot of other internet furniture.
Now through January 17, Nordstrom is taking 20 percent off select styles from Zella for men, women, and kids. You can’t go wrong with the brand’s classic high-rise leggings — a favorite among reviewers and Strategist readers. They have a not-too-long 29-inch seam and are made from soft, moisture-wicking fabric.
Ssense’s sale is still going strong, with new styles (and further discounts) added daily. We think this mesh turtleneck top from Barcelona-based brand Gimaguas would look especially cool worn under a white T-shirt with some silver jewelry.
Ideal for climbing or commuting (or both), this Nike technical backpack features adjustable shoulder straps, a padded laptop compartment, and lots of zippered pockets.
Lisa Says Gah is also having an end-of-season sale, with discounts up to 80 percent off. It is my personal philosophy that no winter outfit can’t be made better with a plaid bucket hat.
If your years-old claw clips are missing a few teeth, try one of the many statement hair accessories — like this flower-shaped clip — that are also included in the sale.
Given that the cult-favorite Sunday Riley C.E.O Vitamin C Brightening Serum is $85 on its own, the inclusion of the brand’s caffeine-infused Auto Correct Eye Cream makes this limited-edition skin-brightening set a decent buy at the full price. With the discount, it’s a steal.
Finally, here’s an excellent deal on a well-reviewed Breville juicer for those who’ve resolved to amp up their fruit and vegetable intake this year.
