The seriously discounted deals you’ll want to add to your cart.

Just as good as stores’ post-holiday clearance sales in January, the early-July markdowns are ones you should be stalking if you’ve had your eye on something special in the shops. The key is not to buy something just because it’s ridiculously discounted, but to shop with intention and find wallet-friendly prices on beautifully made designer items that you’ll love forever, and have an actual need for in your wardrobe. Here’s what I have in my cart…may these finds inspire your own summer shopping spree!
