"I'm sorry, do you have some prior commitment? Some hideous skirt convention you have to go to?"

I know, I know.  I haven't posted in 2 weeks.  And I know I promised to be better about posting.  I don't want to bore you and rant about my excuses, so instead, I thought I'd make a quick post on some of the best labour day sales. 

While I'm all for grabbing things on major sale, I think this is the time of year to buy strategically.  Most stores have a ton of fall arrivals out already, and most stores also have labour day promotions on the entire store.  That's right.  So instead of stocking up on a bunch of cheap summer dresses, it's best to start investing in some fall essentials.  Or maybe I only think that because fall is my absolute favourite season.  It has the cutest clothes (I mean, come on, riding boots and puffer vests #forthewin), and it has the excitement and anticipation of the upcoming holidays all wrapped up into a few short and glorious months.  

Ok, as a side note, I'm highly impressed with A&F's fall arrivals.  I lived in the brand as a teenager, but unlike high schools in the USA, it really wasn't that popular here, or at least it wasn't where I went to school.  I'm guessing it's because there are only two stores here, and it is expensive (given the demographics where I grew up).  I really was one of the only people who wore the brand.  I haven't purchased anything since grade 12 (and I can't believe that was 4 years ago), but I may have to give them a second look!  Midi-skirts, the colour black (I know, it's a huge deal for them!), and more generous sizes.  

So, without further ado, my labour day sales picks: 

Top row: First Blouse: Club Monaco // First Sweater: Abercrombie // Second Sweater: J. Crew Factory (it's the same as the grey one I wear all the time) // Third Sweater: J. Crew Factory (see me wearing it via a change room pic here with some burgundy coloured cords) 

Bottom Row: First Dress: Banana Republic // First Skirt: J. Crew Factory // Second Skirt: Abercrombie // Third Skirt: Abercrombie // Second Dress: Banana Republic 

And here is a list of some of the best store promotions, but hurry, most of them end tonight (also, the promotions I have listed are the Canadian retailers offers)!
