Nordstrom calls this beautiful print ‘lava lamp’ but I think it looks much better than a lava lamp. Just look at the fun yet perfectly balanced shapes, the pretty colors, and the charming fringe at the ends.
And seeing as it’s made of a comfy, warm, single-ply cashmere, you’ll get plenty of warmth without a lot of bulk.
Whatever you call it, this is a great scarf and an even better deal. Regularly priced at $88.00, it’s been marked down to just $68.90.
Hey, it’s a lot better than a lava lamp.]]>

Oh, and thanks to the magic of the internet, you can now get it for less than a Franklin! The retail price is a whopping $253.00, which could hurt your personal economy. eFashion House has been carrying it for $199.00, which is a much better incentive. But right now it’s on sale for a mere $88.00!
You know, with a few good deals like that, your bank account might just start feeling the recovery.]]>

These luscious slippers are made of gold dupioni eco-silk with an organic cotton lining. They even come with a matching eco-silk bag with a coconut button. I think they prove categorically that eco-friendly doesn’t have to be frumpy!
If you agree with me, head on over to VivaTerra and snag a pair. The slippers and the bag combined were originally priced at $69.00, which was also wallet-friendly. Right now, though, they’re marked down to just $49.00.
Even when you’re broke, you need a coat when the chill hits the air. And with the half off outerwear sale at Old Navy, even those of us with just one penny to rub together can afford to get one. My choice? This adorable wool-blend, double-breasted swing coat.
With its cozy funnel collar and range of sizes (comes in regular, tall, and petite sizes XS – XXL) chances are you can find a way to keep warm in this one.
Best of all, it’s on that great half off sale I mentioned. The regular price is $69.50, which is a steal as coats go, but right now it’s just $34.50! A decent winter coat for less than fifty bucks? That’s unheard of…only you heard about it here first.]]>
It’s made of rich, drapey French silk in a soft rainbow of delicious colors. Blue, yellow, green, lavender, are entwined beautifully for an elegant effect, whether you wrap it around your throat or slip it over your shoulders. At a generous 18″ x 58″ you’ll find plenty of ways to enhance your look with this scarf.
Best of all, it’s on an incredible sale over at Madison Avenue Mall.
The retail value of this gorgeous piece is a cool $299.00. Right now at Madison Ave Mall, though, it can be yours for the far hotter price of $150.00! That’s a savings of $149.00, you know, which is enough to get a really fabulous pair of shoes, too, if you know where to shop.]]>
Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Fox intarsia scarf It’s made of 100% Merino wool to keep you toasty warm. Oh, and that purple figure intarsia woven on the grey background? Is a fox. Yes, it’s a cruelty-free fox neckpiece!
In the normal course of things, you’d expect to pay about $320.00 for this fabulous designer scarf. The good news is this isn’t the normal course of things. This is the Basement of the Bargains, where we know how to find a good deal. That’s why I’m going to point you at Net-a-Porter, where you can get it for just $160.00 or half off the regular price.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m just going to throw on my lovely new scarf and go guard a henhouse or two.]]>

Let’s start with a great deal from Bluefly.
I love this cheerful scarf by Renee’s Accessories. Not only does it come in this joyful red trimmed in charcoal, it’s also available in classic black trimmed in ivory. Best of all it has pockets!
<>I know, I know. It’s a thing. I just love pockets, even when they aren’t the most practical. What’s definitely practical is the price. Originally it sold for $42.00, but now it’s available for just $25.00! That’s 40% off!
One thing I love nearly as much as pockets is suede.
Of course when suede is dyed pretty colors and cut into adorable swing jackets it becomes nearly irresistible to me. This one, which comes in your choice of turquoise (shown) or rust, comes from Coldwater Creek. It’s an on-trend two-button jacket that will help you stay warm while looking cool. Best of all, it’s on a heck of a sale.
Originally priced at $129.00, it’s now just $49.99!
What could be more practical in cold weather than a sweater with its own scarf attached?
I’m crazy for this terrific combination sweater/scarf by Fever. It’s available at Smart Bargains in four different colors (grey as shown, black, brown, and red) in sizes from XS to XL. But hurry! Stocks are limited in all sizes and colors. At just $49.99 (regular price $78.00), I’m sure they won’t last long!]]>
The dimensions of 5″ x 70″ mean it can be used with equal ease around the throat or the waist. The colorful print in chocolate, orange, coral, yellow, turquoise, and white will go with a wide variety of blouses and solid-colored dresses, too. And it’s made of pure silk jersey, which I consider one of the most delightful fabrics available.
And of course it doesn’t hurt to find it at 40% off!
The retail price is $135.00, but Bluefly has it right now for only $81.00! I don’t know about you, but that’s one butterfly print I’d like to catch.]]>
And so it is that I point out this great deal on a gorgeous cashmere double-fringed scarf over at Vivre.com.
The artist, Meg Cohen, brushes dried flowers across the surface of her scarves to enhance the natural softness and texture of them. And just look at those lucious colors! I can’t decide whether I like the orange, the plum, or the blue best…but the other three colors are also delicious.
In the season, this scarf cost $350.00, but now when the summer’s got us all panting for a little shade, it can be yours for just $140.00. A savings of a cool $210.oo wouldn’t hurt my feelings about now!]]>
