Mother's Day is around the corner and retailers are bringing out the big mama guns with things that are pretty and comfy and cozy and smelling lovely.  It's a good reminder to get a gift for that mom or mom-like person in your life, or to treat yourself to something beautiful.

Pari Passu is 40% off!

I've mentioned Pari Passu, a revolutionary plus-sized clothing brand before.  You can see me wear Pari Passu in this post. Pari Passu took the 3D body scans of thousands of adult plus-sized women and from it created dress forms for their clothing that represent the three most common shapes of us.  This is a small woman-owned business based in NYC and all the clothing is made right in the New York Garment District.  I've visited the factory; you can see the BTS on my Instagram highlight “NYC 2/20.” The clothing is elegant and high quality and so chic… and many of you said it was just too expensive for your lifestyle.  Well women, get yourselves to Pari Passu ASAP because EVERYTHING IS 40% OFF!  Pari Passu is making room for their Spring collection so what is still available is on a mega sale.  And stay tuned, I'll have some good news about their Spring Collection very soon!

Universal Standard: Buy One Get One 50% Off!

Through May 4th, Universal Standard created a collection of several popular styles.  If you use promo code MOM50 at checkout and get 50% off your second item from the collection!  You can see all the pieces at this link.

Nordstrom: Up to 50% off!

Nordstrom has another one of their sales.  This time, it's a real hodgepodge of cocktail dresses, winter pieces, weird shoes, and even nipple pasties but in between are some incredible gems and below I share some of my favorites.  Every single item is at least 33% off and comes in at least a size XL and everything is under $100 unless otherwise noted. Please note these prices are only available through May 3rd so don't delay!

Apothekari: Free Shipping for Wardrobe Oxygen Readers!

I've been on the hunt for an effective “natural deodorant for a long while.  A few months ago, Apothekari found my natural deodorant review post and offered to send me some of their roll-on deodorants to try.  For the first time, it was a natural deodorant that didn't fail me before I used up the container.  I started with one scent and it wasn't a good fit, but I used almost half before it didn't work out.  I switched to their lavender bergamot scent and used up the whole bottle.  When I ran out, I went back to traditional drugstore antipersperant/deodorants I had in the back of the linen closet… and I began to stink again.  Apothekari just sent me another bottle and I am back to smelling like nothing! Apothekari is a woman-owned Canadian small business.  They know that shipping fees can make or break a purchase so they are offering through May 10th free shipping to Wardrobe Oxygen readers with promo code shipfreewx at their online store. Along with deodorant, Apothakari sells other skin and beauty products such as plant-based retinol, vitamin C serum, various face oils and body moisturizers.

Other Sales Taking Place:

  1. Alison, something I’m unsure about is if you have affiliate links with most all retailers & if so, how we access them if there are not current posts up with a specific retailer? There are times when I am shopping & want to let you get the commission but I’m not sure how to do that. I use an iPad to read your blog so it’s likely that I’m just not sure how to best search your site to find what I’m looking for. Thanks for any guidance you can me! My technology skills are not always the best, to be honest.

      1. Me again—sorry. I’m not seeing a link for Loft. I’ll go through your links from Friday’s post though. Thanks!
