15 Warehouse Sale Items That Will Give You a New Lease on Life

Our Warehouse Sale is packed with pieces that are cheerful, romantic, and powerful (or all of the above)—and perfect for your post-pandemic life.

By Caitlin Abber

It’s almost warm weather season, and I’m so ready. I’m also so unprepared. Like a tiny little tulip peeking up through the dirt, I’m hoping to blossom in the sunshine, but my wardrobe is still stuck in fall 2020. I have jeans, turtlenecks, and cardigans galore (and I love them all dearly), but they’re not really part of my “frolicking in the park” aesthetic. 

Luckily, our Warehouse Sale is packed with pieces that are cheerful, romantic, and powerful (or all of the above), and they’re exactly what I’m looking for re: my post-pandemic lifestyle. Here’s what I’m tossing in my cart right now.

1.

The Joslyn Dress

The Joslyn dress in peony checks all the boxes: It’s pink, lightweight, looks nothing like anything else I own—and get this, it’s machine-washable. It’s perfect for a daytime date, lunch with the in-laws, or even just a lovely Saturday afternoon shopping excursion.

 

2.

The Rowley Skirt

I’m not sure there’s a more poignant middle-finger to the last year than showing up to anything in the Rowley, which is just the most perfectly tailored almost-mini skirt. Do you dare me?

3.

The Rachel Dress

I thought I’d never wear a little black dress again. Then, the Rachel dress went on sale—and well, look at me now (seriously, look at me. I look amazing!).

 

4.

The Felisa Dress

Imagine showing up to Target in the brick red Felisa dress. Not only is it extremely practical (pockets, machine-washable, wrinkle-resistant), it also looks good on everyone.

 

5 & 6

The Mickey Shirt and Lenox Skirt

At M.M., this is what we call a breakup/makeup set. You can wear the Mickey Shirt and Lenox skirt together for a breezy boat-day ensemble, or you can break them up and wear the Mickey shirt with a pair of denim cutoffs for bocce, and the Lenox skirt with a white tank for dinner later on. This is your beach vacation—you make the rules.

7.

The Cobble Hill Skirt

The Cobble Hill skirt is a fan favorite for several reasons, but I think it’s the versatility of the piece that really sells it for me. It’s just as cute with a T-shirt as it is with a blouse, and it could easily replace my favorite pair of jeans—I’d be just as happy and comfortable.

8.

The Doris Dress

I wore the black version of the Doris dress the entire time I was pregnant, but I’m planning on picking it up in baltic blue and pairing it with sneakers, so I have something easy to chase my toddler around in. A full-circle, well-dressed moment—love it.

9.

The Morgan Dress

The Morgan dress is a return-to-office must-have. Slipping on this stretchy, wrinkle-resistant wrap dress is a total power move, and it’s just as comfortable as sweatpants, if I do say so myself.

10.

The Maite Dress

Another candidate for a perfect day-date, fancy brunch, or elevated Sunday ensemble is the Maite dress in Atlas print. It’s also the inspiration I need for booking that long overdue international trip.

11.

The Taylor Dress

The Taylor dress is the total opposite of my fall 2020 wardrobe, and that’s why I love it. This is not a casual dress; it’s meant to be worn when you need to make a statement, get shit done, or just want to feel like your most ambitious self. 

12.

The Gosia Dress

Another stunner for my returning-to-the-office arsenal, the Gosia dress is a hybrid of a wrap dress and a structured shift. I love the V-neck and the sleeves, and I think this dress would look especially good with ankle boots.

13.

The Graham Kimono

I wore my Judith hoodie every other day this fall, and while I plan on wearing it several times a week (what’s better than a cashmere hoodie on a chilly spring morning?), I also want to mix things up a bit. The Graham kimono is long, stretchy, and really versatile. I’ve seen M.M. team members wear over tank tops and jeans, and I plan on wearing it as a coverup by the pool this summer.

14.

The Marilyn Dress

I am always looking for the perfect “throw-on-and-go” dress, and the Marilyn in staccato might be the one. The machine-washable, lightly-tailored frock was designed to look good on every body type, which means reaching for it on those mornings when I can’t decide what to wear is an absolute no-brainer.

15.

The Greenlay Dress

I’m obsessed with the slight mockneck of the curve-hugging Greenlay dress. It’s sexy but understated, and it makes me want to go to a fancy restaurant, sip Manhattans, and see where the night takes me.
