This outfit post is going to be a bit different this week. It is going to show some of my deals I got last week, as well as an “old” dress I adore from H & M. Because of this shopping trip, I had to cancel a certain sweater tunic I had been longing for. No regrets! I definitely got more for my money.
Not shown here, but will be shown in future posts are two long sleeve layering tops and a Mickey Mouse top from H & M. Also, two days before I went with my daughter, my husband and I went to Nordstrom Rack because he needed new work shoes. I found the cutest red and black plaid tunic and black pleated tunic on clearance. But that is for another day. I just wanted to include the other items I purchased that replaced the sweater I had previously wanted. Yes, I got all of those items, and the following purchases I made for myself, for less than the cost of that one sweater! Now, on to the deals fun:
My daughter and I went shopping for her Homecoming dress together on Thursday night. We ended up scoring one for $16. Yay! (This meant she was free to purchase the cutest flannel shirt with an inlay crochet back that was also on sale.) Before we found that dress at Macy’s, we went to Nordstrom Rack. We did not find any clothes there. However, we browsed their tights section. Hidden in the tights section were tons of tights marked “last chance $1.” You had to flip the package over to find the clearance price sticker. If you have a Nordstrom Rack near you, I would go check. This was just six days ago.
I got my daughter a pair of Kate Spade blue tights originally marked $32 for $1.
All in all, we scored 8 pairs of tights (my daughter was wearing one the day I took the above photo) for $14.74. Two of the packages were “only” clearanced to $4. One was $1.74. But we both needed a basic black pair. They had tons more clearance $1 tights hidden in the tights section.
At H & M, I found these awesome layered bohemian bracelets (the strands are connected. I am wearing them all). They were marked $10, but rang up for $5. Plus, they were doing buy two get one free. I purchased five bracelets and one ring for my daughter (which I was told was very Pokemon) for $21 (originally $61).
I paired the bracelets with a white sleep shirt I had scored with my daughter at Macy’s ($10 originally $28). I just layered a white tank underneath it and tied it. I had slept in the shirt the night before. Yes. I can get lazier.
I cannot wait to wear this Kenneth Cole necklace I got from Macy’s for $16 (originally $48). I just tried it on with the white shirt. Notice, I was too lazy to take off my bracelets while doing so. So I just hid my hands behind my back.
And last week I wore an H & M dress I purchased with my husband on an anniversary trip four or five years ago. I had it hidden in my closet all of these years. It was so fun to discover it again! I paired it with the Coral Latticework Necklace I purchased on sale from Anthropologie last week for $20. I am also wearing vintage boots from the flea market.
What have been your best deals lately? I don’t think there is a bigger rush than saving money!
* And in exact opposite form of what I just said, I will be doing another outfit post this week on a spendy dress on Saturday. I am nothing if not a walking contradiction. Have a great day! : )
P.S. If you want to read a blog that deals specifically with deals and where to find them, I highly recommend Nikki’s blog: Fashion Finds On A Dime. She is very inspiring.
