If you know me, you have probably heard of my obsession with the Barney’s Warehouse Sale. Every February and August you can find me there with shopping bags full of shoes. Imagine my horror when I found a news article explaining that the sale has been indefinitely canceled? My poor husband heard me complain for a week straight. The good news is, the reason the sale was cancelled; Barney’s has launched a new website dedicated to their warehouse sale! So far the discounts don’t look as deep. The selection does seem a lot better though, with most things 60% off. And 60% off Manolos are nothing to complain about…
Check out the sale here.
Night out on the town in feathers, sequins and hot pink.

And a fun pic of me and the hubby doing vodka tasting in a vodka freezer. Don’t you love that they give out fake furs and hats? My husband thought we looked super Russian.
In case you haven’t heard: Nordstrom anniversary sale is on!
Not only do they have a ton of merchandise marked down but they have free shipping and returns. If you haven’t really done online shopping before this is a great way to try it out. I use the size guides and reviews to help me choose a size. I would also advise checking if you have a particular brand already in your closet to check what size you usually wear.
The pool is a great place to show off your brights and florals. It doesn’t hurt that my favorite Sunday pastime is hanging out by the pool. Put on a cute outfit, grab some drinks, a friend (in my case my hubby), and a book or some gossip mags — this is what I call relaxing.
As you see, you can take your style and trends you want to try out anywhere — even the pool! If there is a trend you are not sure that you love, or love on your body, try wearing it somewhere casual like to the pool. Ask your friend to snap some pics of you so you can get an unbiased, 3rd party, view of your outfit. Looking at yourself in the mirror doesn’t really provide you an honest view of your outfit.
This outfit says fun and relaxed to me.
Welcome to Sumptuous State — the fashion blog where luxury meets real world.
Fashion is defined as a popular trend, especially in styles of dress, ornament, or behavior. It is also something that is part of our daily lives. To quote PBS: “Even people who say they don’t care what they wear choose clothes every morning that say a lot about them and how they feel that day.” What do you want to say to the world?
While you may not always have an exact answer to this question, I want to help. I created this blog because I have a lot to say and I think you do also. If every time a person gets dressed they are telling the world something about themselves, shouldn’t they have the tools to do it? This blog was created for all of you; I want to share my fashion obsession with you and show you how to best articulate what you want to say. This will include the best styles for different body types, how and where to shop online, hip and affordable designers, how to style different pieces or trends, and more. Also, I want us to have some fun and look at some pretty pictures! If there are any things you have questions about or want to see on here feel free to let me know. Hopefully, this post will be my first of many and we will have lots of fun together.
Thank you for visiting my site and happy reading.
