Recent Buy: Willow Sunset Dress at Shopbop Summer Sale up to 70%

I was so happy to receive an email from Shopbop announcing further reductions on their sale (up to 70%). I finally bought the Willow dress (I posted about here), which I have wanted since I first saw it when shopping with my sisters (but with a baby bump, I didn't dare try it on), but now at 70% off! Things are selling like hotcakes, so I suggest going having a look ASAP (or not, if you are trying to be good - I would hate to be a bad influence on anyone, haha)!

Shopbop's Summer SALE | New Markdowns on What You Need Now

I have seen this dress (pictured left) in real life and really love the fresh and cheerful colours on the tweed, and most of all, the zip detail, always a bonus when nursing...

There were so many pieces I really wanted to buy, and most of them were unfortunately (or fortunately, from my wallet's point of view) sold out in my size. Here are some of my favourite pieces (clicking on any pic or description will lead you to the item's page, except for most of my Willow purchases right at the bottom of the post, as they are no longer available):

Willow Sunset dress and Palm Print dress (for any American readers, do keep in mind sizing is Australian/UK - I think that is a possible reason why these were still up for grabs, just a theory)

Doo.Ri runway printed and draped (with leather detail) dress

3.1 Phillip Lim detachable panels yellow jacket (such a glorious colour!) and Dion Lee placket shirt (shame the blue sold out)

Zero+Maria Cornejo yellow shift draped dress and stunning blue leather jacket (sadly neither in my size left)

Peter Som orchid dress (absolutely gorgeous! so tempted...) and Equipment Brett shirt (wish the Poppy colour were reduced too!)

Peter Som blouse (none left in my size, or I'd snap it up, such a bargain, and such a beautiful statement piece!) and skirt.

Remember these KC Pointer chambray shoes from this post? They are now reduced to $66!

I also really like the look of those Acne Clover boots, and the Maison Martin Margiela cutout wedge booties are also 70% (wonder if they do indeed run small as the reviewer says...)!

I just realised I have been on quite a Willow shopping spree of late! Here are some other recent Willow items that have made their way into my wardrobe:

I bought the silk tunic pictured tucked under the skirt on the left, but in the coral colour on the right (same colour as the trim on the skirt), as well as the skirt in the right picture...I have been eyeing this draped Willow skirt for so long! I also really like the tunic dress in purple, available on sale at Net-a-Porter at the moment.

And these silk jackets, although I am thinking of altering both at the shoulders, on me, they seem to 'stick out so much! I also have the dress version of the 'geometric' jacket on the left, and have worn it so so much!


  1. Ooooh I was also eyeing the Zero+Maria Cornejo yellow dress! I like your Peter Some dress and skirt pics...

  3. Those are really beautiful prints! Best to take advantage of the sale too...

  4. i know they have such great markdowns, it's tempting! i've been eyeing those margiela cutout booties, but am going to resist. how are you settling in with the new bebe??
