Playing Dress-Up with Bad Joan
I would like to introduce you to Bad Joan: an online sample sale featuring overstock from the best up and coming and indie designers offered at up to 80% off of retail! They offer women’s clothing, shoes, bags and jewelry and work directly with the designers to guarantee 100% authenticity. And, honestly, “online sample sale” isn’t the best way to describe this site because, contrary to the typical “sample sale” format, these products are available until they’re gone – no start/finish/crazed rush – they’re there for perusal, and the (very infrequent and unobtrusive) mailing list notifies you of new additions!
Guys, I have been swooning over Bad Joan‘s inventory for months, and almost have an ulcer from the guilt of not telling you about them sooner. I am the worst fashion blogger ever, hoarding all the amazing, unique designs all to myself.
Well, no more! Let’s put a stop to this and use some Bad Joan pieces in an art project, yes?
Shoes: First, because that’s obviously what this outfit is all about… Marcello Toshi Rosario Pumps ($390 $85)
Dress: Love this not only because it’s made from sustainable fabrics, but also because it’s an easy, throw-on piece… ecoSkin Copper Dress in Cloud ($235 $45)
Earrings: These are statement earrings, but not so much that they’re unwearable… Lisa K. Lace Cake Earrings ($175 $58)
Summer date nights, anyone? Those shoes are hypnotizing… (Hopefully that means he or she would be, too!)
Jeans: I love the wash on these, and they look like the perfect amount of “skinny”… Karmel & lden Wendy Low Rise Skinny ($158 $60)
Top: The strong, bold zipper against the beautifully draped, butterfly-like shoulders make for a beautiful contrast… Object of Desire Dolman Zippered Top ($168 $33.60)
Shoes: These might be the most incredible wedges I’ve seen this summer… Colin Robertson Lynnette in Blue ($387.50 $77.50)
Bracelet: Just the right about of blue to make the shoes pop – this outfit is a beautiful bruise… Samanca Kelly Bracelet in Blue ($150 $30)
Easy, easy weekend date, girl’s night out, dinner with friends, concert… Pretty much, you could wear this anywhere.
Dress: Not only is it the perfect cut, length, and neckline for just about any woman – the colors are also extremely complimentary… Kaj Ani Striped Wool Jersey Dress ($415 $83)
Shoes: This guy is slowly climbing up my “Obsessed with” list… Marcello Toshi Tulipan in Brown ($425 $90)
Clutch: You don’t need a loud bag when your shoes are screamin’… Tucker Paisley The Joey Clutch in Green ($165 $85)
Talk about going from the office to the cocktail hour…!
