The Sogand Coat (now $349 + 30% off) comes in two colors, classic camel or luxurious lavender,
and goes with so many coordinating items that are also on sale!

We're in the middle of winter but as far as most retailers are concerned the season is over, which means great deals are abundant right now! But where does your dollar get the best value? To me, an item I'll love is always worth it yet excellent quality always helps.

My mind lately has been turning towards real cashmere, wool, cotton...materials that last. And my desires have been more than fulfilled by Club Monaco, whose winter collection is gorgeous, hitting sale, and an extra 30% off through Sunday!

Inside, some of the beautiful items you can grab for a relative steal...


The lavender version of the Sogand Coat (now $349 + 30% off). The shoes shown here are also on sale!

Yes, the price point at Club Monaco is higher than most of our favorite mid-range retailers. But the brand answers everything we ask for: great quality, wonderful materials from silk to cashmere, and the occasional knockout sale like we have going on now.

Here are some of my sale picks, all an extra 30% off through Sunday:
1 | Let's start with a few items you'll see on me in upcoming OOTDs (and if you want a preview, check out my Instagram!). My hunt for a great plaid winter coat ended with the Airlia Plaid Coat (now $399 + 30% off), a long and beautiful blue coat. One of the things I love about Club Monaco is that they have a consistent color palette that gently shifts each season, so it's easy to invest in a piece one season and come back two or three seasons later to find coordinating items. Of course, blue is a very versatile color anyway. To layer, I sized up to a large in this coat.
2 | Another great grab for me is the Kalani Coat (now $349 + 30% off), a pink peacoat offset with cute gold buttons and tones of brown and grey. It looks amazing with with white, but also works fantastically with lighter blues, greys, and purple. It's so warm too!
3 | If you live in a warmer winter area, then my next sale coat recommendation is the Farzin Trench Coat (now $260 + 30% off), which is topping my wishlist. The details and fit on this trench are impeccable; it reminds me of how Burberry used to be. I found my usual medium to work best on me here. I'm in love with the navy (called Eclipse) myself, but there is also a Pink Blush color.
4 | The Byannca Sweater Dress (now $159 + 30% off) has just a hint of the ruffle trend in its sleeves, has flattering chevron ribbing and goes with almost anything in the light grey color. I tried my usual size medium and it worked great.
5 | Another ruffly option that doesn't overdo it is the Evern Sweater Dress (now $169 + 30% off). It looks great with tights, booties or pumps, and a long overcoat. This dress is more body-skimming so I went up to a large for try-on.
6 | If you just want a warm and wonderful dress (and considering it's 22 degrees F out as I type this, yes please!) then I can't say enough good things about the Edvard Sweater Dress (now $169 + 30% off). It comes in three beautiful colors, is long enough for winter layering and has a warm turtleneck. One caveat -- though it is a wool blend, if you have wool allergies this dress will bug you. It wasn't itchy to me, but I can tell it would be to people who are sensitive to it. There was only a medium for me to try on in-store and it worked great.
7 | If you have a smaller bust and want to try upscale fringe, then the Beberly Sweater (now $129 + 30% off) is where you should look! I was delighted by the playful design of this sweater; alas at 5'8" with a 32DD bust it was much too cropped on me. But I think anyone below a C cup or under 5'5" would look amazing in this one, and I am jealous.
8 | If winter vests are your thing (I've been known to don one every now and then), the Laken Cashmere Vest (now $400 + 30% off) is so soft, looks like real fur, and comes in a very easy to style grey.
9 | Cable sweaters can often be tricky with curves and large busts, but the Ralla Cashmere Sweater (now $279 + 30% off) is knockout gorgeous on. I went with my usual size medium.
10 | The Lucah Sweater Skirt (now $120 + 30% off) is soft, feminine and beautiful. I took a large in this one.  The 'Rosesnip' color goes great with the Julie Turtleneck (now $39-$59 + 30% off) in violet.

I'm so in love with Club Monaco right now! I covered some of the pretty new arrivals earlier this week and will have OOTDs featuring them late this coming week or early next.
