My love of fashion is hereditary. When I was little my mother used to drag me to her favorite stores almost weekly. I absolutely HATED shopping and I swore it was a form of child abuse. Because I live some distance (5 hours) from home, when my mother and I see each other, there is usually a little retail therapy involved. Last weekend we checked out a few outlets about an hour away from me and I found some things I’d been seeking out for quite some time.
When I shop outlets, I search primarily for basics. In the About section of this blog, I mention my love for a great deal. Everything in this picture was at least 40% off of the original price–most things were even less expensive. In case you’re wondering, I’ll list my purchases below.
1. Green Polo purchased from JCrew; it was $5.99!
2.Grey Blazer from GAP; I purchased this in Navy as well. Finding pieces like these are so difficult for me because I’m not small, but I’m not plus-sized and I’m only 5’1″–finding perfect fits is such a challenge.
3. Messenger Bag; I’ve got tons to do this semester, and I needed a bag that wouldn’t rest on my shoulder. This one’s sturdy and feminine.
4. Wristlet; It’s light in color, and probably not practical for the upcoming seasons, but I wanted it. Definitely my splurge.
5. Black Blazer from NY&Co; you can’t really see it because it’s laying flat but this blazer was $13.75! Another great deal!
I think I might go in search of accessories this weekend. It’ll be a present to myself if I accomplish the majority of my to-do list.
Have you found any great deals/steals lately?
