When I signed up for the magazine journalism major in college, I knew it would consist of fashion, but I truly never imagined that my job would result in my literal dream — AKA shopping online for eight hours straight each day. But here I am, five years in, and I’m the go-to for anything shopping-related for all of my friends and family. And instead of sending out a bunch of links for the fashion deals I’ll be shopping for Memorial Day, I decided to just write about them instead.

Since about two weeks ago, I’ve had my eyes glued to some of the items I’ve been hoarding in my shopping carts on Amazon, Nordstrom and Abercrombie to see if they’d be on sale this year — and thankfully, most of them are. These items consist of good basics like quality trousers and T-shirts for work, but also fun items for summer like party dresses and swimsuits. Want to see what fashion deals a shopping writer is purchasing this Memorial Day? Keep scrolling to shop my top 18 picks!
