Recent Purchases: ShopMissA Haul + Instagram giveaway!

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, then you've probably seen my postings of cute little offerings from ShopMissA.com.  What is ShopMissA, you ask?  It's an online boutique that carries jewelry, makeup, and hair accessories- all for just $1!  Yep, one measly dollar.

I recently purchased some more jewelry from them (this is my fourth time ordering), and as always, I'm pleased with the service and everything that I bought.  Check out a few of my fave pieces from my haul!

double pearl bangle.  I knew the necklace wasn't going to fit my thick neck, so I opted for the bracelet instead.  Honestly, for $1, I wasn't expecting much, quality wise.  I thought it was going to be flimsy, and I would only get a few wears out of it, but the quality is pretty decent!

And to show my appreciation to my awesome readers, head on over to this post on the Cheapalicious Instagram page, for a chance to win a $25 gift code to ShopMissA!  Good luck!

Weekend Finds: Another Dirt Cheap Haul.......

On Saturday, the hubby and I took a trip over to Fort Lauderdale for a little retail therapy. First, we stopped over to the Ft. Lauderdale Swap Shop, and when the heat became too excruciating, we left and drove over to Dirt Cheap.  The last time I was in Dirt Cheap, my back was killing me and I was dying of hunger, so I didn't look as thoroughly as I wanted to.  But, this time, I went over that store with a fine tooth comb and left out with some awesome stuff- a lot of it were Target castoffs, but awesome stuff nonetheless.

On that particular day, clothing that had a tag with a "W" was 70% off, so I've found a lot of stuff that were less than $3!  How awesome is that?  Check out my finds below.....

Dirt Cheap "W" price tag.  70% off, y'all!

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target dress $2.10 (70% off $7), and Peter Pilotto for Target shorts $1.80 (70% off $6).  Surprisingly, there are still a few pieces left from this collection on Target's website.  I also found two pairs of Merona boot cut jeans for $2.40 a pair.
Lucky Brand jeans $6 (80% off Dirt Cheap's price of $29.99).  The last time I was here, they didn't have my size in any of the Lucky jeans that they had in stock.  I lucked out this time!

skater skirt $1.80

Bisou Bisou tropical print romper $9

If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw that I've spotted some Sam and Libby for Target heels and Peter Pilotto for Target sneakers at Dirt Cheap.  Shoes that were tagged with an "SY" and  "SJ" were an additional 40% off.  Shoes tagged with an "SE" were an additional 80% off.  I walked away with two pairs for myself and a pair for my husband.

Merona men's oxfords $6 (40% off $10)

Rue 21 spiked heels $2 (80% off $10)

Sam and Libby metallic heels $6

Do you have a Dirt Cheap in your town?  If so, what have you scored from there?


Designer Way vs. Cheapalicious Way: Perfume bottle clutch

Spotted on the arms of celebs such as Rihanna and Miley Cyrus, the Chanel perfume bottle chain bag from the 2014 Cruise bag collection retails for $9500 (ouch!).  Love the look of the Chanel bag, but don't want to take out a loan to get one, GoJane has a cheapalicious alternative for a little over $50.

What say you?  The real or the steal?


Nifty Under $50: Pineapples.......

Ok, so I guess you can say I'm a tad bit obsessed with pineapple prints at the moment (I still want this linen pineapple print tee). They're cropping up everywhere!  Such a fun print and perfect for the upcoming summer.  While scouring the interwebs, I ran across a few pieces from some of my fave stores for under $50.  Check 'em out!

Merona popover shirt $22.99, Target //  Peter Som for DesigNation pineapple tank $19 (sale, reg. $38), Kohl's //  Alex and Ani pineapple charm bangle, $28, Zappos //  pineapple Iphone 5 case $20, Nasty Gal // pineapple print bodycon dress $15.80, Forever 21

What do you think of the pineapple trend? Love it, or leave it?

Thrift Score: April's Haul aka the Worst Thrifting Trip Ever......

Last Saturday, I decided to venture over to the Goodwill Outlet after work for a little retail therapy. Though, I was excited about digging around in the bins for some goodies, all that was quickly shot down once I entered the store.

I'd been dealing with these pesky allergies since last month, and I totally forgot to take my allergy medicine for that day.  Since most thrift stores tend to be dusty sometimes, as soon as I entered the store, the sneezing and the coughing started.  After what seemed like forever, I finally got it under control and continued shopping.

 I got there an hour and a half before closing time, and everything was basically picked over.  They did the last bin change for the day and everyone was standing around it like vultures waiting to swoop down on its prey.  I didn't go near that bin because I know how crazy some of the customers can get.  In fact, while I was over at another bin, a woman almost knocked me over trying to get to it.  Sigh.  With only a few items in my hand, I wasn't finished shopping, but at that point, I was ready to go home.  I left with a purse, four pieces of clothing, and three books (not pictured).  Total price of my haul was $6.61 (about $0.83 a piece).

multicolored sweater

striped sweater

cropped pants:  I don't know why, but I love the print!  And they're super comfy, too! Perfect to lounge around in.

Have you ever had a bad thrifting trip?
