Chasing Davies: My favorite online Labor Day weekend sales!

My favorite online Labor Day weekend sales!

Do you prefer to shop online or in person at a store? I am about 80% of an online shopper myself. I love virtual shopping for a few reasons: it's so convenient, like late at night after baby is sleeping - no lines, no crowds, no rush; being able to quickly compare prices and act on the best deal; being able to use discount codes vs. coupons (hate paper); more options (in available merch, sizes, styles, stores that aren't local, etc).

But about 20% of the time, I do like to get into a store for a few reasons: in-store displays are always inspiring; if the mood to browse in person strikes (sometimes it does, most the time it doesn't); shopping with friends - it's a fun social activity; trying it on and buying only if it fits and I like it and return worries.

So which do you prefer and why?

And speaking of shopping... Labor Day weekend is one of the best times to shop and save money!  I never do my fall or "back to school" shopping in July when all the merchandise comes out (though tempted), I hold out for a month and a half or so for this weekend, because it all goes on sale!  Best time to shop for the best season ahead...  Here are a few of my favorite online sales (with their discount codes and a few favorite picks) going on now through Monday. 

ASOS is my go-to shopping site for something more unique to even the most basic, yet chic tee. I am obsessed with their midi-skirt selection.

  • Take 20% off on full-priced items with code SW20
  • ASOS always has free shipping AND returns (so don't fret if new to ordering from their) + right now, free 2-day shipping on orders $140+ with code EXPRESSUSA
  • A few of my picks:

Boden, a site I've yet to order from, but often adore their clothes and love flipping through their catalogs and site for inspiration.  Might have to bite the bullet this time, plus they have adorable kids clothing, too!

Gap is my go-to for a good basic and every once and awhile, a surprising unique piece. I just upgraded from my current, slightly too big and more of a faded camo jacket to this season's Gap one, that I just love. It was a deal to good to pass up!
