Friday morning I'll be popping into the Rack for 'Clear the Rack' to get a 25% off price adjustment on all the clearance goodies I've picked up this week. I've been hoping for a magical designer piece to come my way but so far no luck. Fingers crossed as Clear the Rack goes on thru the 4th!
I did get lucky in the shoe department this week - they had just put out some kids shoes that were transferred in from Nordstrom and they were all marked a penny LOL.
When I went back the next day I took another peek and actually found a pair that would fit one of my kids :)
Also on my sale radar is Century 21 - I hear some things have already dropped to 50% off but y'all know that's just not good enough for me. I'm holding out for 75-90% off. I'll be sure to give you guys the heads up when that happens. H&M typically starts giving away their stuff as well - this sale is when I buy tons for $1-5! Yellow stickers will also be appearing shortly at TJ/Maxx and Marshalls. And I'll be Target hunting for sure over the next few days - when the holiday stuff goes to 70-90% off I fill my cart LOL.
I've been avoiding retail like the plague (crazy throngs of shoppers...) so I've been spending lots of time thrifting. I think I've been getting pickier so not as much comes home but what I do get is pretty special.
I've had Karen Millen on the brain since a client told me she was a fan. Last time I passed up a bandage dress for hers for $30 because I was being cheap. Sometimes my thrift stores totally overprice things so I have to take a step back and think - what would I pay for this at TJ Maxx or the Rack? Still kicking myself for that...so when I saw this dress marked 50% off for $12.50 I grabbed it. I figure I'll wear it a bit and see if it's me (I prefer my dresses black LOL) and then I can pass it along or sell it.
I would have LOVED to have found Loeffler Randall boots but for now these $525 Ynez sandals will do. Got 'em for just $15!
This Narciso Rodriguez was just $20 so I grabbed it even though it was way too big. I still can't locate the collection but it looks like some of his 90s pieces. I've since taken it to a tailor and it's much better now but still not as tight as I'd like. I'm going to wait before I have it redone.
Ella's hair was still done from my brother's wedding that I planned in a week when I heard he was going to elope (that's a whole other blog post...) so I made her model my $20 fur collar. I believe it's rabbit fur but I'm not sure. It's a very 70's cut and it has hooks so I know it came off a coat - I spent an hour looking for it when I found the collar but I just couldn't find it :( I have a feeling it was from an awesome camel coat. Ugh.
Who else is getting excited for New Years? I just thrifted the cutest vintage Oleg Cassini 80's sequin dress for 10 bucks. I'm not going to show it to you just yet - I'm holding it for a New Years party or my next photoshoot.
And last but not least, congrats to @anabellaforcoups on winning my Insta giveaway for a pair of my penny Burberry baby shoes! LMK which pair you want :)
