This Weekend's Best Online Sales
Insert alt text here

I’m a big proponent of treating yourself. Someone I used to date would often tell me that it’s not a treat if you get one every day — here, he was referring to donuts — but I disagree. You should do whatever makes you happy, and if that means spending a little bit of money on yourself, no matter how frequent, go for it.

Of course, there are limits to how much cash you should plop down on the reg in the name of self-care, particularly if you have bills and responsibilities and people to take care of and things like that. When I do buy myself something, it’s usually in the beauty, bath, or home category: a nice candle, a good face oil, some sort of body scrub. This weekend, I’m once again on the hunt for some small things to gift myself that won’t cost a ton of money. I encourage you to do the same; you can start with the sales listed below. Tiffany Yannetta, shopping director

Good jewelry sales don't come around too often, but the prices at Saks Off 5th right now on fine (and fashion) jewelry are pretty good. This Elizabeth and James White Topaz Band Ring is half-off at $42.50, as are these Miansai 18K Yellow Gold-Plated Sterling Silver Studs.

Journelle always has a pretty good sale section, and the weekend before Valentine's Day is of course no exception! This set by Else is currently in my cart; the bra is on sale for $60.20, and the bottoms are $40. On the complete other end of the spectrum, I'm also really drawn to these Maison du Soir pajama pants (they're listed here as "Grandma Pants") that are marked down to $77. Somewhere in the middle is this Eberjey pajama set for $69.

Another really splurge-y category: perfume! Of which I really can't get enough, even though I wear the same scent every single day. Twisted Lily is one of my favorite stores in New York — it's a boutique fragrance store in Brooklyn, and it sells all of these brands with great packaging I've never heard of. Really, that's all it takes to get me in the door. Right now, there's a handful of Inspiritv candles on sale for $78. I'm aware that is a small fortune for something that literally burns down to nothing, but, normally they're $130? Does that help?

Origins is having a friends and family sale this weekend, where you can take 20% off your total order with the code FRIENDS. This Feel Good Face Pillow (will be $25.60) is amazing, as is the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask (will be $20.80). Great for dry, flaky winter skin!

I've wanted this little Misha Nonoo mini skirt for a while, and now it's just $79 from $265. If that's not quite your speed, there are a few other really fun things that are also marked down, like the Cecile Blouse ($75) and the very ruffle-y Carlotta Dress ($118), which, honestly, I'd probably wear with pants.

Feature
Sephora and Vagisil Both Love Huda Beauty’s Founder
Huda Kattan.

Huda Kattan is a hugger. I’ve only “met” her once, and that was on a phone call two years ago. But that didn’t stop her from giving me an enthusiastic greeting, squeezing me warmly, and complimenting my hair, like we were old friends meeting up for our weekly coffee date. She’s completely disarming. It’s not surprising that her 17.3 million Instagram followers feel like they know her.

Huda’s combination of insane glamour mixed with a bit of self-deprecation and goofiness has helped her launch an indie beauty business called Huda Beauty. An auditorium full of beauty company executives came out to hear her speak at the WWD Digital Beauty forum in NYC this week, presumably to figure out how to capture some of her magic for their own brands.

Huda, who is in her mid-30s, was born in Tennessee to parents of Iraqi descent. She went to college in Michigan, where she studied finance. After a few false starts working in finance and as a recruiter, she ended up moving to Dubai with her husband. She finally decided to try to make beauty a career, became a makeup artist, and launched a blog. She was the makeup artist at several Middle Eastern royal weddings, and the blog led her to start successful YouTube and Instagram accounts. She launched Huda Beauty in 2013 in Dubai, starting with lashes, which sold out at Sephora there. She released lip liners and matte liquid lipsticks a few years later, and the growing collection is now carried at Sephora here in the US and at a few Sephora stores in France.

While the collection only features lashes, an eyeshadow palette, and lips so far, Huda gave me a few scoops about upcoming products. She had teased a new foundation on her Instagram Story last week, and confirmed that a foundation line, as well as a primer, are forthcoming. You can expect “over 20 shades,” launching around October of this year. Huda says the company is also releasing another eyeshadow palette in September and a highlighter palette as well. 

“The [foundation] formula is special. I’ve tried so many foundations and it is full cover and it’s honestly changed my life,” says Huda. “Color matching for foundation is, like, the hardest thing I think I’ve ever done for beauty. I was doing fractions trying to find the percentage of people who have redness in their skin!”

Just One Thing
The Denim Hoodie I Stalked for Months and Finally Bought

Marques Almeida Hooded Frayed-Edge Denim Top, $157

There are some items of clothing that I’ve seen come in and out of the fashion closets I’ve worked in over the past few years that have made me say to a coworker “OMG, I have to buy this when it arrives in stores.”

Seven or eight months ago, that happened with an oversized denim pullover hoodie from Marques Almeida. I tried it on, and after a few yeses from my coworkers, I decided I had to have it. It’s oversized, and its hood, sleeves, and bottom edge are frayed. It’s one of those pieces that I know I could throw on every day this winter if I wanted. I’m kind of a lazy dresser, slash I’m always running late in the morning, so this oversized hoodie would help me just throw on something and run out the door.

When I asked the brand’s PR rep for the retail price, she told me $550. I laughed out loud. I’m not paying $550 for anything denim! I figured I’d just look in thrift stores for a cheaper option. (I’m one of those people who says things like that.) I’ll go to about three or four thrift stores and if I can’t find something similar, I’m over it, and that is exactly what happened.

But then one night as I was cruising SSENSE, I found the jacket on sale for $275. I died because I had just paid rent and had no money, and of course there were only two left. (Other sites still had it listed for $350 — uh, no thanks.) Two weeks ago, though, a friend of mine posted a shot of the hoodie on her Instagram story, which is how I eventually found out that Matches had it listed for $157. I bought it.

What I really love about it is that I can wear it as an actual coat. I wore it the other day with a thermal and a T-shirt layered underneath, and I wasn’t cold. It's also quite the conversation starter. —Victor Qunnuel Vaughns, assistant stylist
