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?

Ready? OK!


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…!

Which outfit would you wear? Why did you choose it?

    You can’t make me choose between the first one (I’m in love with warm, rich neutrals lately) and the third one (a pop of color without being overwhelmingly trendy? How do you do it?).
