A few times a year the retail gods bless us with the Macy’s Friends and Family Sale.  With promo code FRIEND, or in-store shopping pass you can print from Macy’s website, you can take 25% off the majority of apparel, including sale and clearance items.  Shoes, purses, you name it; included.  There are exclusions, like Coach being excluded online, but not in store.  Regardless, it’s a great sale to stock up on some basics, or treat yourself to something you’ve been eyeing up for a while.  Here are a few picks from us.  Since part of our country just got hit with a nor’easter that packed snow, let’s start with some jackets…


Belted Trench Coat by Style&Co – $47.99 ($63.99) & MICHAEL Michael Kors – $82.49 ($109.99)

Lightweight warmth

Spring is the perfect time of year to sport a trench coat, and here are two beauties at a great price.  The Style&Co trench comes in white (pictured) or black.  If you’re buying it specifically for spring, consider the white.  Use the belt tied or cinched around your waist to accentuate your curves.  The Michael Kors trench just comes in the light khaki color pictured, but there is contrasting color on the belt and lining, either “denim” or “papaya”, your choice.  Either color works well for the season, and adds an extra bit of eye candy.  Feel like the belt on either trench is too long?  Just have a tailor shorten it for you.


INC 3/4 Sleeve Sequined Blazer – $56.24 ($74.99) & Levi’s Denim Jacket – $37.49 ($49.99)

Night & Day

Wear that fun, sparkly blazer with a little black dress (just like model) and knock some socks off.  It could even be paired with the right jeans if you’re rocking some killer pumps.  And Levi’s jackets are classic.  The cut is feminine, but denim jackets are pretty tomboy.  It can be paired with so many casual looks.  Just be careful pairing this jacket with blue jeans on the bottom, or you could end up on a site like this.


INC Embroidered Beaded Dress – $75.74 ($100.99) or INC Ruched Cowl Neck Dress – $37.49 ($49.99)

One will hide a little more than the other

Two fun options from INC International Concepts.  The price on that black ruched dress is really starting to get down there.  The ruching will provide just a bit of coverage if you had too much bubbly and your tummy is showing it.  Not much though, so this is a dress better suited to slender girls.  The INC embroidered dress has an empire waist, and is thus more forgiving around the middle.  One of the reviewers said the fabric is stretchy though, so be aware.  If that horseshoe collar cuts too deep for you just wear a cami in one of the brighter colors found on the dress underneath it for some coverage.


Style&Co White Wash Jeans – $32.99 ($43.99) & Levi’s Sundown Red Wash Capris – $24.74 ($32.99)

Foregoing blue for color and lack thereof

Ladies (and any gentlemen that happen to be reading), you don’t always have to buy denim in blue.  I am just as guilty as the next person for sticking to just good ol’ blue jeans.  But here are two denim options that forego the blue but are high on style.  First off, those Style&Co white wash jeans have a great cut to them.  A cut like that will flatter so many body types.  The capris, on the other hand, are a slim cut.  They’re not going to look great on everyone, but there are a lot of you out there that could easily pull them off.  They have spandex in them, so there is some stretch.  Detailing on the back pockets and front change pocket is really cute, and this bright red color can take you right on into warm fall days.


Short Sleeve Shrug Sweaters by Elementz – $26.24 ($34.99) & AGB – $26.24 ($34.99)

Little sweaters for little warmth

Every now and then I put on a dress, and perhaps due to bra straps showing, or the dress being strapless, I wish I had a shrug to throw over it.  Well, perhaps I’ll take a cue from myself and pick one of these up.  The Elementz shrug leans a little dressier to me, though the model (that seems to need a sandwich, those are some tiny arms!) is wearing it with a casual look.  The ruffle detail and fabric, acrylic, make it perfect to pair with a dress.  Comes in white or black.  The AGB shrug, on the other hand, looks great casual due to the lack of frill.  Cotton and acrylic, and comes in the yellow shown, melon, white, and black.


Fever Batwing Sleeve Pointelle Knit Oversized Sweater – $40.49 ($53.99)

Bright colors working beautifully against dark skin

I had to share this sweater simply because of how beautiful the colors look with the models skin, and it’s such a fun, fashion forward look!  The sweater is available in the chartreuse color shown, and white.


INC Solid Strapless Dress/Skirt – $33.74 ($44.99) & INC Pull On Jersey Skirt – $30.74 ($40.99)

One of these is a chameleon; it's also a dress

So we have an item that doubles as a skirt here.  The pink skirt on the left is actually a strapless maxi dress that rolls down and can be worn as a skirt.  Brilliant!  And you know what works great with strapless maxi dresses?  A shrug!  The pull on jersey skirt looks very trendy with those gladiator style pumps, and the light grey color will work great with any bright colors you want to pair with it.  And both these skirts look extremely comfortable.


Tommy Hilfiger Liz Striped Colorblock Boatneck Top – $37.49 ($49.99)

Nautical colorblocking

Unfortunately this top is sold out in small, but medium through extra large sizes are still available.  Adorable styling on this one.  I doubt the other sizes will last long!


Nine West Maibu Peep Toe Wedges – $52.49 ($69.99)

Show of those toes

These leather cuties can take you from the office to drinks afterwards and everything in between.  Available in red (shown), tan, black, and pewter.  Also still available in most sizes.


Aerosoles Wedge Sandals – $37.49 ($49.99)

A good everyday sandal

There are A LOT of colors available for this sandal, and the red comes with a great tribal looking print on the wedge.  Aerosoles are known for their comfort, so you should be able to wear these for several hours.  Received a 10 star recommendation from a reviewer, even though the reviews only go up to five stars.  Cute and classic.


DKNY Vintage Leather Shoulder Bag – $125.99 ($167.99)

Only red is available now

This bag is a splurge, but it’s one that won’t wear out on you.  A nice size, now only available in red.  Not your cup of tea?  There are plenty of other bags on the Macy’s site.  Just remember that Coach is excluded online.  Seize the opportunity to get that bag you’ve been eyeing up, especially if it’s already on sale and qualify’s for the 25% discount!


So, did you find something at Macy’s or on Macy’ that shouldn’t be passed up?  Tell us about it in the comments…
