I told myself that I wasn't going back to the stores until the Christmas crowds were gone, but, we ended up going to Tar-zhay because Mr. Cheap Chica needed batteries out of the $1 Spot (yes, it still exists, somewhat). While I was there, I decided to pick up some items that I needed. Of course I can't do that without scoping out the clearance racks. I found this top for $4.48. I usually don't wear tops like this, but it's really cute in real life and it fit perfectly. Score!
French maid shirtdress $8.99. Obviously online price is different from in-store price. Still a great price.
FORUM TOPIC(S) OF THE DAY: What will be the trends for spring/summer of '07? Hmm. Also, would you spend a fortune on trends that will be no more by the end of the season? Holla!
|You Are a Practical Gift Giver|
In your opinion, the best gifts are gifts that someone will actually use.
Your gifts may not be the most glamourous, but they are always appreciated.
Here's a scan that I got out of People Magazine's Style Watch Fall 2006 issue. Peep that nice Prada bag. Too bad I don't have Prada money. But, there is a cheaper alternative:
Melie Bianco Shirred doctor satchel $54.99, Fashion Flairs. Right now, take 20% off all orders. Coupon code: FF20.
- What's your favorite place/site to shop for bargain fashion?
- What trend did you go overboard with this year? Mine was red and patent leather, lol.
- Should I keep or return those Payless Louboutin knockoffs I bought Friday? Need style suggestions.
- Some sellers on Ebay are getting ridiculous with their shipping prices. How much are you willing to spend on shipping?
Right now, if you head to your local Payless, they are having an in-store clearance with select styles up to 60% off. I ended up buying the patent wedges that look like the Louboutins that I posted about a month ago for $9*. Some people are skeptical about Payless shoes. Yeah, some of them could be a little uncomfortable, but these are really comfortable. I love them. The glittery "Ilecktra" pump was on sale for $7*. There were a couple of other shoes that were on sale, but the ones that I listed were the cheapest and cutest in my opinion.
*prices may differ from store to store.
