Clear the Rack & other sales, Target & thrifted finds...and Happy Passover!

Before I begin my recap let's start with Clear the Racks! From April 17-19 Nordstrom Rack will be taking an additional 25% off all clearance!

My only score (and I'm on the fence about it) is a Rebecca Minkoff large watersnake crossbody box bag that retailed for $350 - I got it 70% off PLUS the additional 25% off. I'm not in love so I may pass it along to a friend, we'll see...

The $750 Elizabeth and James honeycomb bracelet I've been stalking finally got a markdown and with the extra 25% off it's down to $200. I made the mistake of not trying on before now. I finally did and it's NOT comfortable AT ALL and I've been watching it for over a year. Stupid bracelet.

And yes, I plan on going back tomorrow :)


As always, I've had my hands full these past couple of weeks. I was busy with Passover prep and while I was cleaning I finally found two missing items (yay!) I also completed my second round of T25. I did wimp out of my fashion challenge - I'll try again in a couple weeks. It's just too hard to dress for Spring when it's cold and still snowing. Can you believe it snowed in April???

So here was my 4 day fashion challenge. I didn't intentionally try to get my outfits around $100 but that's just how I roll :)

Day 1
H&M faux leather jacket, thrifted $12
Black layering top, $10
Target skirt $8
Aquatalia boots, thrifted $4
Rebecca Minkoff MAC, Nordstrom Rack refurb $65
Gerard Yosca bracelet, sample sale, $5
I wish I loved my Chanel as much as I love my MACs!

Day 2
This is my not very exciting ensemble worn over a black knit thrifted ($8) dress:
H&M trench coat, $8 thrifted
Roberto Cavalli sunglasses, Century 21 75% off, $18
Marc Jacobs bag $90, Nordstrom Rack refurb
Target leopard booties $9
I have a closet of designer rain boots, yet I almost always reach for these :)

Day 3
Phillip Lim for Target dress $12 (Target clearance)
thrifted leather belt $3
Crocs Sexi Flip $15 (sale
Gerard Yosca cuff bracelet $10, sample sale
Argentino Vivo earrings $25, Nordstrom Rack
Gucci Soho bag, FREE (gift from my awesome brother - retails for $1950!) Thanks Shlo!
My belt shifted - it looked better when it was higher up.

Day 4
Roberto Cavalli sunglasses, Century 21 75% off, $18
H&M faux leather jacket, thrifted $12
Rebecca Minkoff MAC, Nordstrom Rack refurb $65
Leather studded bracelet, Target $5
Gerard Yosca earrings, sample sale, $15
Jessica Simpson watercolor dress, Nordstrom Rack, $25
Marc Jacobs flats, Nordstrom Rack, $10 (were $400!)
After a couple hours I switched into my Sexi flips - stupid Marc Jacobs tore my feet up.

Honestly I had every intention of continuing but I decided to Thrift on day 5 so I dressed down in a taupe knit dress and flips but when I got home I passed out before taking pics and posting some of my Passover outfits which I didn't even get to wear. Spring seems to be postponed around here. We spent the first days of Passover with my parents and half of my siblings - and I barely made it out of the house because it was so cold (and all I had were sandals LOL. Wishful thinking...)


I did manage to squeeze in a couple trips to Target and my thrift stores :) Here are a few of my favorite finds:

My son had a huge Skylander phase - it's over so he told me to return these. They were 50% off - $25 each.

I've always wanted a SodaStream so I got excited when I found this unit marked down to $17.98 from $59.99. It really not so exciting - it's a glorified seltzer maker. At least I didn't pay retail :)

70% off, baby!

$17.98 and $2.08 each
Crystal Light should have been $5.99 each but I snapped a pic and they honored the $2.08 price at the register. I cleared the shelf LOL.

Target honored their pricing error :)

Also - I have a whole bunch of Peter Pilotto pieces that I plan on returning. No important pieces - just random ones mostly in smaller sizes. LMK if there is something you are ISO and I'll be happy to sell it to you for non ebay prices.

I love vintage finds - plus my thrift store marks them super cheap. Scored this fun 80s dress (note the giant shoulder pads, batwing sleeves and drop waist) for just $2.99!

Not sure where I'll wear it but I couldn't leave this Kate Spade silk dress for $15.

Kate Spade silk dress $15

Random cuteness for my girls - all $4 each!

Grabbed this Vera Bradley tote for $1.99 for my DD - it's going to be her beach bag :)

Her entire outfit cost under $10 LOL


If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you may have seen my shopping pics from the Off 5th Saks designer event or H&M last week. They had some pretty eye candy at Saks but nothing was worth buying. H&M on the other hand is still having 50% off markdowns and I filled up 4 bags of stuff with prices as low as $2! My 92 year old grandmother recently lost a bunch of weight and was refusing to go out because she had nothing to wear. I grabbed tons of size 2 and 4s only to find out that even at 85 lbs she needs a size 6 in H&M. I spent an hour returning all of it today :( I did find some $5 dresses for my sister and my husband and son got a few pieces for $3 each.

Slightly overpriced Blahniks and Pradas...
Love these Brian Atwoods! Sadly too small and too much :(

They had several pairs of these Louboutins. I wish I went to the pre-sale - wonder what I missed...

50% off clearance at H&M - still going on!


This week was my son's and younger daughter's birthday. My kids are now 5, 7 and 9. I can't believe I've been a mom for almost a decade now. Both of their birthdays were on Passover/Spring break so I'll have to start planning their parties for next month. My son was happy with just an ice cream cake and his thrifted gift - I found him a FAO Schwarz Muppet Whatnot for $4 (retail $100). My husband just set him up with his own Instagram account so among other random things, he took a pic of his new Whatnot. Considering my (little boy genius) son has been surfing the net since he was 2, and had his own Facebook since he was 5, I'm actually shocked it took him this long to ask about Instagram LOL.

You can't have a birthday without Carvel.

Pic of DS's Whatnot from his Instagram account.

On the other hand my newly 5 year old got slighted as we have not really done anything for her as her birthday fell on Passover - and frankly Passover cake isn't all that tasty. Poor kid. I'm not sure I even gave her a gift :( Maybe tomorrow I'll let her pick something from my gift closet.

ETA - just remembered we gave her Meatloaf. American Girl had it on sale for $10 and she really wanted it (she kept showing me him in the catalog lol). I'd forgotten because we gave it to her last week LOL.


Last but not least, I wanted to share a quick pic of my DD sporting one of those sock-bun thingies. I know I'm the last person to jump on this trend but it's so cute on kids.

She told me the teachers loved it LOL.

So happy Passover for all of you celebrating - and happy Easter for the rest of you :) Either way, enjoy spending some time with your family this weekend. Bonus points if you can sneak away to hit the Rack and find some goodies with the additional 25% off!

XOXO Shoppinggal
