Killer Deal: Ralph Lauren Booties

rlbootsclearance

 

Miss Dressy is in town to visit, and while at the Outlets, I chanced upon these booties at Ralph Lauren for…. $24.98. But get this: I received an additional 25% off (clearance item) plus 15% off (special coupon I printed online).

I paid a grand total of $15.92!

I’m REALLY happy, because I returned these two other pairs of booties I have been considering.

Gotta LOVE this Ralph Lauren store, especially since I scored a new pair of knee-high leather boots a few months ago too!

 

DOTD: $1.70 stripey tees

Erm, ok, this is embarrassing, but I bought more clothing from Target.

I was at Target picking up mouthwash and picked up two striped shirts for $2.70 each: Basic v-necks that are great for yoga class or just running inane errands around town (like picking up mouthwash at Target).

However, when they rang up, there was a “Buy 2 get $2 off” promo in effect, so each shirt came up to just $1.70! SWEET!

And by now you already know I have a stripe-addiction problem…..

DOTD: Vince Camuto peep toes

Have you ever gone to a TJ Maxx to look for ONE THING and actually succeeded in leaving with said ONE THING?

Well, I never have.

Today I ventured into that treacherous place to pick up a gift for a baby, and… of course, the shoe section exerts a magical magnetic attraction that I could not resist.

A pair of Vince Camuto ‘Kendall’ peep toe patent pumps caught my eye so I thought to slip them on, just for fun.
Oh. They’re half a size too small, but hey, they look so chic.

As I peered at the shoe mirror, two women, also victims of the magnetic shoe section, ooh-ed and aaah-ed over my new find.

“They look SO GOOD on you!”
“Such pretty shoes! Did you see another pair around here?”

At this point, I decided to look at the price. All 3 of us gasped:

Well, as 3 random strangers who just started talking in the TJ Maxx shoe aisle, we unanimously agreed that I HAD TO buy these shoes.

But they’re a little tight, I countered.

Immediately, I was advised to wear socks with the shoes to stretch them out. Use a hairdryer to soften them WHILE wearing socks. “Oooh! I saw that on Pinterest,” I add. “OMG I LOVE PINTEREST!” squealed my newfound friends in unison.

Of course I bought them. It wouldn’t be right to let my friends down, now would it?

At the cash register, the sale clerk who rang me up made a remark about how much she loves this shoe, and then went “WOW you got a DEAL on this one!” with the $15 beep.

I found them online:

As I left TJ Maxx beaming and proud, I realized… I don’t have much to wear my new nude peep toe pumps with! Oh no! So… when I walked by a $22 tan-colored pencil skirt at Target (erm, I had to get a card to go with the gift?), I snapped it up too.

The best part? I have a 3-day conference to attend next week, so I can debut these shoes, the skirt, AND my new Calvin Klein pumps and J Crew skirt! WOO HOO!

Deal of the Day: Gap Peacoat

In the last month, The Gap just opened a new outlet store walking distance from my home. Today I finally popped in to look around, especially since I’ve been on the hunt for an affordable peacoat.

Lo and behold, I found this!

$13.99 for a black peacoat, marked down from $89.99, woooo hoooo!

It’s not the most wonderful fit, but I can completely see this coat replacing my Kenneth Cole down jacket that leaves feathers all over.

I LOVE that it has a hood too!
