Shopbop Sale Math

It's the sound that rang out across the internet today: It's Shopbop Sale time! They have two really big sales a year usually, and it's time for their fall "Main Event" sale. The gist is this: Get 25% off orders up to $500, or spend $500 or more and get 30% off. Buy more, save more. Since I've got some store credit burning a hole in my pocket and a winter wishlist the size of Santa's, I've put together a little Shopbop "sale math" for you guys today.

I basically sat down at my desk one day and went into my wishlist and figured up every possible combination of the things I wanted vs the credit I had and how much it would all cost at 30% off to figure out exactly what would end up in my shopping cart today. I haven't quite figured out the right combo yet, but I'll let you know when I do. Ready to play? Here are a few combos I put together for you:

Under $250

With 25% off, you've got around $330 of full-price merchandise to play with! So you can get fully fall ready with these Kendall & Kylie suede booties (SUCH a cool shape) and a BB Dakota slouchy jacket. Total cost? $236.

Under $500

At $500, you get bumped up to 30% off, which means you can buy around $700 worth of full-priced items. I'm planning a trip around Christmas, so this little jetsetter duo is the perfect equation for travel. I've had my heart set on a Tumi carry on for a while now, and this Tory Burch packable tote is PERFECT for tossing inside your luggage. It folds into itself, so you can toss it in and then use it when you buy a bunch of stuff on your trip. I always carry a small empty tote for this very reason! Your total cost for this travel duo? $490 after the code MAINEVENT16.

Under $1000

For $1000 bucks, you can definitely get some serious designer goods - about $1400 worth. I'm currently lusting after this perfectly minimal crossbody from 3.1 Phillip Lim (it's so soft in person), and since Stuart Weitzman isn't excluded from the sale (yay!) I might be picking up these Booties, which are like a stumpy version of my favorite Highlands from last year. This total actually comes in well under $1K at $850 with the 30% off.

So, do tell: What Shopbop math have you done for this sale? What's catching your eye? AND WHAT DO I NEED?? This sale is particularly easy this time around because there are very few exclusions, and Shopbop has labeled each item that qualifies so it's easy to tell if something is included! Check out the exclusions and details here and happy shopping!
