Bloomingdale's is one of the most iconic department stores of all time, known for its vast collection of designer items, its chic storefront windows, and, of course, its iconic brown bags. When I was in college, I spent many an afternoon wandering its aisles, eyeing gorgeous dresses, blouses, and jeans, dreaming about the day I'd be able to afford designer pieces that would last me a lifetime. If you've ever done the same, I have great news for you: That day has finally arrived, because the massive department store has just unleashed a sale that takes up to 30 percent off hundreds of designer items.

The sale, which applies to all items on the store's site labeled "SAVEMORE," is tiered based on how much you spend—so the more you buy, the more you save. When you spend between $100 and $250, you save 20 percent; when you spend between $250 and $400, you save 25 percent; and when you spend $400 or more, you save a whopping 30 percent. All you need to do is use the promo code SAVEMORE at checkout, and you're golden.

This sale lasts until June 18, and I, a Bloomingdale's devotee, took the time to scour their website for the best deals on the most practical, beautiful timeless pieces that will take you through this season—and many more seasons to come.
