Bloomingdale’s Discount for Pear Shapely

New York natives and their neighboring counterparts all fondly remember their love affair with Bloomingdale’s in the 70s. The store’s history dates back to the 1800s, but during the 70s the store was a major destination for stars, fashion icons and wanna-bes from Long Island. When the disco generation was large and in charge  “Bloomies” (59th street and Lexington) was “the” place to get the look and was a necessary shopping haven for those longing to access Studio 54.

Since then, the retailer has established itself as a one stop shopping Mecca, and with coupon code “BFRIEND” you will receive a 20% discount off of qualified purchases(runs through 11/15). For extra savings, this code can be combined with markdowns and sales already in existence throughout the store and on the website.

Far be it from me to pass on the opportunity to browse a sale and pick out fabulous finds for my pear shaped bodied brethren. The store has so much to choose from including L.A.M.B., Lucky Brand, ABS by Allen Schwartz, Spanx and Alice and Olivia.Bloomingdale’ designer offerings are mind boggling to say the least and you should take the time to peruse your favorites.

Knowing that one could get 20% off and a bonus offer of a $100 gift credit for $500 spent, I would take this moment and a large hunk of my cash to get one of the great coats from Mackage. The Canadian based  design house is gifted in the art of creating stylish overcoats, perfect for cold fronts. My choice for keeping warm and showing off my rocking curves is the elegant Mackage Funnel Neck Coat with Corset Belt ($690.00).

Mackage Funnel Neck Coat with Corset Belt, $690: Bloomingdale's

No doubt, the belt is the star of the show! The coat itself is composed of a blend of wool, polyamide and cashmere. Boh the  corset belt and funnel neck serve utilitarian duty as they will minimize drafts in sensitive areas. The silhouette of this covering is reminiscent of a 1950’s party dress, the best cut for Pear Shapely as it will show off your slender top and easily accommodate your swinging hips. Finally, black is always slimming and will provide you with the most versatility in your wardrobe. Admittedly the coat is pricey, but when it comes to winter wear, the expenses is well justified.
