Weekend finds: My experience with Steve and Barry

Friday night, Mr. Cheap Chica and I finally went shopping at the new Steve and Barry's that opened up over a week ago. It was a zoo in there. It was so busy. They were still having their grand opening sale, which was $8.98 or less for the entire store. I shopped most of the Bitten stuff while Mr. Cheap Chica browsed the shoe section. All that stuff that I posted last week, with the exception of the gray vest, that I wanted was nowhere to be found. I don't know if they didn't get the stuff in or everyone bought them all. I was kind of disappointed, but I bought some cute things.

  • Bitten vest $8.98
  • gold filigre pendant, cuff bracelet, and elephant necklace, all from Bitten, all $8.98 apiece. I didn't quite understand why the jewelry was $8.98 when I saw online that they are $6. I told that to the cashier, but he said the register wouldn't let him override the price. Whatev.

I also bought a pair of gray trousers, a black pair of slim trousers, a black pencil skirt, two sets of bangle bracelets (gold and silver), a pair of shoes for Mr. Cheap Chica, a black cardigan, a pair of Bitten bootcut jeans, and a pair of pajama shorts. Despite what a nightmare the store was, the staff was very friendly and had an upbeat attitude. Man, if that were me working there on a day like that, I probably would've had a nervous breakdown, lol. I will definitely visit again, but only during the week when their stock's replenished and the store's a lot less busier.

Hey, Miss Cheap Chica
I also hit up the Steve & Barry's and Barry's sale last week. I was a little dissapointed that I did'nt find some items also. I am so cheap I refused to pay the $8.89 for the headbands and jewlery. I did buy the Bitten jeans... See My poste here:

that's been my experience too: i never see the stuff that's online at the store. whats up with that?? :)

The Cheap Chica said...

^^^ i don't know. maybe it depends which areas they think the items will sell the most. idk. hopefully, they get some of the cute stuff in. i really want that houndstooth coat, lol.

I really like the Bitten stuff. I bought a black velvet blazer and dark denim skinny jeans last week. I'm loving the 8.98 sale. Its just not fair for the accessories though. I'm feeling the Eleven collection too, but there was next to nothing left at my location.

The Cheap Chica said...

^^^now, they had a lot of eleven stuff left. i didn't really look through it. maybe when i go back again, i'll look.

Since i found the S&B's near me i have gone at leat twice a week i have on a whole outfit from them right now.

The only flaw to the 8.98 is iliterally everything is 8.98 even the damn socks

I had the same problem, accessories that used to be 5.98 were 8.98, I felt they were trying to pull a fast, onced i got to checkout i put jewelry back and only purchased jeans, sales people offered no explanation
