If you’re anything like me, you get a little depressed when the holiday season is over. It seems to end so suddenly; one day you’re waltzing down Colorado Blvd. to the sights of twinkle lights and garlands, and the next, it’s back to bland. As if nothing celebratory ever happened. The one thing that makes up for it? Post holiday sales.
Yep. Now is the time to stock up on winter clothes, accessories, purses, shoes–everything. Because the markdowns going on right now? Are insane. Just today, walking through Paseo and Old Town, I gleamed signs with percentages so high I balked. (Up to 60% off at Loft? Yes, please!) It might not feel like a Christmas wonder town anymore, but saving money on amazing items is a nice way to ease into the New Year.

Anthropologie — South Lake Ave.
Who can pass up a sale at Anthropologie? These are rare and hard to come by, so take advantage of discounted dresses, pants, sweaters, jackets, bling, and more! (Note: this store will close on the 4th and reopen in Old Town Pasadena on the 17th — more on this soon.)
Extra 30% off of sale items
Banana Republic — Old Town Pasadena
Found an adorable camel colored cardigan for under $20! Its gold buttons and pretty red and cream pattern made this an unbelievable deal.

Madewell — Old Town Pasadena
If you’ve been in this store, you know how good a deal 40% off is. So, run to shop the racks of silk dresses and jeans, parkas with fur-lined hoodies, shoes (like their French Knot Pointy Skimmer with brown bows? Adorbs.) and more.
J.Crew — Old Town Pasadena
I found two amazing necklaces on sale for 40% off — steals for their quality and style — and a beautiful black and white lace peplum top (which was a perfect NYE addition!) Note: all 40% items are final sale only.

Loft — Paseo Colorado
Love this store’s already good deals on classic pieces — add an additional (up to) 60% off? You’re practically walking out of there with free items.
BCBG — Paseo Colorado
One of my favorite boutique style places to shop — higher end pieces, unique designs (like their asymmetrical grey suede jacket), and bold colors — all can be quite expensive. Which is why a sale like this one is definitely worth a visit!

Urban Outfitters — Old Town Pasadena
Need I say more than, wow? The highest discount I’ve seen so far in Pasadena!
