Shopping the Sales

It's mid January, the spring lines are out, the christmas sales are over, the general consensus is that anything on the sale rack is the dregs that no one wants and the stores are dying to be rid of.

Despite this, I managed to have an extraordinarily successful shopping trip at Urban Outfitters, J.Crew, and the Gap.

Urban Outfitters

A little green, perhaps?

Splotchy leafy green high waisted skirt, Originally $48, now $20 in the store, but is $30 online.

Lilac/Mauve Knit Jersey Dress, with pockets (I love a dress with pockets), and button accents. Originally $48, now $30 in store, $35 online.

Racer back cammi with drapey chains, This top was originally $38 and reduced to $10, but had a couple damaged bits, so I got it for $8. They should be a quick fix.

J.Crew - Extra 30% off clearance in the store

Velvet Blazer, Ruffle top, Skinny Cords

Toothpick Ankle Grey Cords, originally $78,  reduced to $21 ($30 online). I really, really loved these when I tried them on in the store, but after wearing them for a day I've realized how very not stretchy they are. I wonder if they will stretch out any after a few wears...?
I love how the ankle length is perfect for my height, at least I won't have to hem them - yay!

Salmon Pink Huge Flower Top, originally $89.50 reduced to $14, when will I ever have enough tops with ruffles, flowers and big dramatic embellishments?

Antler Tissue Tee, Originally $45, reduced to $10. I first noted this cute tee when it was featured on Style Obsession, and when I saw I could get it for $10, I had to have it. It's not really that seasonal - there are other animals with antlers, you know.

Gap - Extra 25% off clearance in store, tiered savings online

Skinny Gold Belt, originally $20, reduced to $7, I've had my eye on this one for a while - I love skinny belts, even if they aren't leather.

Green Pointell and Teal Opaque tights, Originally $12.50, reduced to $3, Can you ever have enough tights??

The best part of my little shopping spree is that I don't even have to feel too guilty about my purchases, as I had to make returns and I had gift cards, so really, I just turned two presents into nine.

  11. Love your Outfits, and the things you bought, especially the green top, it looks adorable.

  12. You made out like a bandit! I'm in love with the chain tank. I might have to take a drive to Urban tomorrow to see if I can find it!

    And you're too sweet to link to my post! I love that tee. I'm looking forward to wearing it again in the fall, maybe layered over a plaid shirt? I've noticed that some of the beading is pretty delicate, though, and you may need to resew some of them when they get loose.

  13. wow you picked up some great stuff for cheap!Makes me sad though because I bought some those exact tights from Gap and paid the 2 for $20 price. But you paid $3! that is such a good deal!
