Alice + Olivia's winter sale is on its last leg with additional markdowns being taken on some awesome styles. I couldn't resist the lure of these fun polka dot flats in textured pony hair on super sale and placed an order (standard shipping is always free but note that some styles are final sale).
I picked up the Elise A-Line Dress worn in this post a few weeks ago (in size 0; A+O runs about a size smaller compared to mall retailers) and have been wearing it pretty much whenever I get the chance. The slight sparkle in combination with ladylike tweed is suitable for both daytime and evening occasions and the dress is easily transformed.

I am a fan of the classic black and white tweed of the Alanna Open Front Box Jacket and also like the bright colors of the Gwen Collarless Trim Jacket and Estelle Open Front Box Jacket.
I think Alice + Olivia blazers and jackets add just enough twist to classic styles to be multifunctional, a quality I find so attractive in clothes. The Elyse Jacket combines feminine lace with a more traditional menswear jacket style for a fresh take on the wardrobe staple. Other styles that I think are fun include the Ena Notched Collar Jacket, the Royal Zip Front Blazer, and the slightly kooky Betty Jacket.
This sale also includes some colorful /printed/textures jeans and pants at 70% off; I liked the 5 Pocket Skinny Jean, Printed Skinny Jean, Metallic 5 Pocket Skinny Jean, Cropped 5 Pocket Skinny, Anders Cargo Pant, High Waist Wide Leg Pant, and the Stacey Bell Back Seam Jeans.
If you just want to click around the sale and see what's out there, here are a few other styles that I think have potential: Selma Open Back Fitted Dress, Devon Printed Patent Heel, Ira Sheath Dress With Belt, Leopard Sequin Infinity Scarf, Noelle Butterfly Sleeve Top, Bonnie Smocked Sleeve Top, Double Pocket Top, Mid Length Fitted Dress, Domino Printed Pony Wild Belt, , Boxy Tee, Charnele Open Mesh Back Fitted Dress, Zebra Print Infinity Scarf, Wrap Front Drape Top, Madison Baby Leopard Flat, , Exposed Front Zip Legging, and Indigo Square Neck Dress.
