Welcome to Nice Saves, Bazaar's destination for the best editor-approved sales from across the internet each week. Here, I'm dedicated to uncovering can't-miss deals for the good of your closet.
The holiday season is fast approaching, and if there's one thing I've learned in all my years of online shopping, it's that the best party outfits are the first to sell out. But for those willing to act fast, Nordstrom, Saks, Neiman Marcus, and Net-a-Porter have everything you need to get a jump-start on your festive 'fits. While you won't find many retailers holding mega-sales this close to Black Friday, you can still score some incredible deals in their good old-fashioned sale sections.
To top off my party looks, I'll be raiding the Sephora Saving Event (which ends on November 6) for sparkly makeup products and Sheertex early Black Friday sale for rip-resistant tights, and I suggest you do the same. These short-lived deals are some of the best you'll see all year, and you'll use these products long after the ball drops on New Year's Eve. Whether it's discounted designer jewelry, knee-high leather boots, or a new shade of lipstick, this week's sale finds will score endless compliments during the holiday season— and they have the staying power to be styled year-round.
Read on for 11 nice saves worth adding to your cart before they sell out.
Wouldn't this shiny little Simon Miller bag look adorable tucked under your arm at a New Year's Eve party— and when you watch the Beyoncé concert movie that hits theaters in December?
Jokil Double-Breasted Twill Blazer
This oversized Acne Studios blazer is precisely the type of jacket my cool friends use to cover their NSFW outfits when we have to take public transportation to the party. The satin lining ensures it'll look equally stylish draped over your arm once you arrive.
Feather-Trimmed Satin Chemise
Feather trim adds a playful touch to this hot satin midi dress that can be worn as a party dress and lingerie. On sale in black, pink, and baby blue, it's the next iteration of Barbiecore that you'll wear long after the trend fades.
Mirage Faux-Fur Coat
Is it just me, or is the shorn faux fur design of this Unreal Fur coat giving vintage Fendi? At 50 percent off, it makes a surprisingly versatile addition to your winter coat rotation.
The Red Menace: How Lipstick Changed the Face of American History by Ilise S. Carter
Ilise S. Carter's The Red Menace is one of the most fascinating fashion history books I've ever read (and as a Firstfinds trend expert, I've read many). Despite being a quick 200 pages, it takes a mind-blowingly deep dive into red lipstick's social, moral, political, and economic impacts over the past 300 years. I'll be gifting a few copies to my Fenty lip paint-loving friends this Christmas.
Vice Lip Bond Glossy Longwear Liquid Lipstick
Speaking of lipstick, I'm restocking my favorite shades of Urban Decay's Vice Lip Bond before the Sephora Savings Event ends on November 6 (using the promo code TIMETOSAVE). The kiss-proof formula and glossy finish of this Unbreakable shade have made it my go-to red lip.
7/7 Sequined Leather Shoulder Bag
If this green sequin bag from The Attico isn't giving holiday party, then I don't know what is. But believe me; it'll earn compliments all spring, summer, and fall long— especially when you tell them you scored it for 50 percent off at Net-a-Porter.
Colorfix Cream Pigment
A few layers of Danessa Myricks' Colorfix Cream Pigment is all it takes to achieve a red carpet-level eyeshadow look. After falling in love with this frosted silver shade, I'll be grabbing a few additional colors (there are nearly 50, after all) during the Sephora Savings Event.
Beaded Bow Earrings
These glitzy bow earrings from Oscar de la Renta will liven up any party look, no matter the dress code. And they'll jazz up a graphic tee and jeans on a dreary winter day.
Backseam Super transparent Tights
As a longtime hosiery hater, I was admittedly skeptical when my coworker gave me these Sheertex tights for an office wear test. But I'm pleased to report that after multiple wears and one total faceplant, these rip-resistant tights have held their shape and stayed entirely snag-free.
Nell 65MM Leather Wide-Shaft Boots
These 3.1 Phillip Lim boots were practically made for dancing the night away. The wide shaft and walkable stiletto heel will keep you comfortable on your feet all night long.
