Hiii friends! I question I get all the time from my friends and insta followers is: where should I go to shop for formal occasions? For us college aged girls, it’s probably formals, semi formals, but this could even work for weddings too (bridal showers, couples showers, wedding events galore!)
THE BEST TIPS + TRICKS FOR ONLINE SHOPPING
My favorite places are the sale racks. I just can’t pass up a good sale. I can’t! I always check places like Saks off Fifth, Neimans Last Call, and Revolve sale! You can find amaaaazzzing dresses for half the price! I love a designer dress, but sometimes the splurge is just too much for my poor lil credit card, so that’s when I hit the sales! It may seem daunting to go through pages and pages of dresses, but think of it as thrift shopping. Sometimes ya just gotta dig!
I’ve also had success on sites like Poshmark. If you can find a trustworthy seller, then you’re good to go! I’ve gotten name brands like Lovers + Friends and For Love + Lemons on major sale. Normally I can even find them with the original tags still attached, which is obviously the best deal of them all.

Did someone say sale…? Do yourself a favor and snatch up a sweet pair of shoes this weekend from ShopBop! I went ahead and did some of the hard work for y’all- narrowing down the choices. I tried to include a lil’ something for everyone. PS: how stinking cute are the fringe lace up sandals?! I am IN LOVE.

Are y’all going shop the sale?
I always love a good pair of riding boots. You can pair them with anything- jeans, leggings, a dress, literally anything. This Sam Edelman pair is so sleek and I love the color options offered (a grey, deep chocolate brown and a chestnut).
Fringe is all the rage this season! These booties are too cute. Fringe would be the perfect addition to any outfit that needs a little spicing up!! This neutral color matches with anything (especially purple and gold).
Dolce Vita makes THE BEST open-toed booties. There was a pair from last year that I went on a man hunt for in September. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find them anywhere! These are the closet match I was able to find. I’m loving the zipper detail and this pale nude color makes me swoon.
I have seen quite a few bloggers I follow on Instagram sporting sleek booties similar to these. I loooove the rounded toe these have. I’d pair them with an adorable pair of flair jeans for a 60’s-70’s vibe.
Every girl needs a solid pair of black booties to wear with anything and everything. Checkout the zipper detail on these (do y’all see a theme? I really love zippers this season). My pair of black booties that I currently own are my absolute go-to for any outfit.
Have any of y’all shopped the Nordstrom boot sale? If so, what are your picks?
