I won a couple other giveaways recently and I'm still waiting for my prizes. One was last week but the other was over a month ago. I hate when people have a giveaway and totally flake. Will be sure to share when (and if) my winnings arrive :)
And now for the drama. For some stupid reason Instagram decided to block me from commenting for the week. On Saturday night my Instagram was acting all glitchy and made me create a new password. When I signed back in I got a pop up message that I was blocked FOR THE WEEK??!! Luckily I can still post pics and I can always comment from my closet account, @shoppinggalscloset. I guess I'll be focusing a little more on my Facebook and Twitter this week. I was really pissed because I was signed up to do my first loop giveaway tonight (and had to back out) for a Louis Vuitton bag and Hunter boots which I know you would have loved. Sigh.
Back to the Rack, on Black Friday I picked up this BCBG Max Azria trench for $19.97 from $448! Do people actually pay those retail prices? And before you ask, someone already checked and these are sold out company wide.
I also shared my penny fail on Instagram last week. When I find penny shoes I snap them up and usually don't try them on - I just throw them in my cart. I thought it was funny that somehow I ended up with two left feet LOL.
I'm most excited about these super cute $159 suede Vince Camuto Tecca open toed fringe booties that I got for a penny. Love me some fringe! I usually don't buy an open toed boot because I think they are conceptually stupid - but the price was right :)
Nordstrom Rack happens to be holding a Burberry women's shoe event at several locations - check with your local stores. Prices were only around 40-60% off retail so truthfully you can do better at the department stores end of season sales right now. It's really only worth going if you are looking for a specific older shoe. I took a couple pics of boots that caught my eye. Personally, I've purchased Louboutins for less.
Here's my Carolina Amato sample sale haul from last week. Clockwise from the top center; the pink cashmere headwrap was a sample and $10, the furry leather gloves were $10 because they are damaged by the wrists, the orange hat was free with purchase and the matching gloves were $9, the finger-less fur gloves were $15, the pompom hat was $19, the red leather & cashmere convertible mittens were $15, grey furry finger-less gloves were $15 and the red leather finger-less gloves were $10 samples. Can you tell I'm obsessed with finger-less gloves at the moment?
And a mod-shot of my new Kara Ross for Tory Burch cuff. #LOVE!
I realized I never shared my entire A.V. Max sample sale haul either. Their cuffs are what first brought me to their sale and are what keep me coming back for more. Their leather bracelets are so comfortable. And you now know about my matched cuff fixation so for $5-15 each, I totally stocked up.
Their earrings are seriously the best deal at the sale - they are buy 4 get one free and work out to $4 each! Some of these retail for over $50! The prices you see on the earrings are the wholesale and they said they recommended multiplying it by 2.5 to get the retail. (For example, $14 x 2.5 = $35.) I got the oversized mismatch pair last time as well - I got a second pair this time so I could make a matched set. The big circle on the left is actually a skinny rosegold bracelet that I plan on stacking with the cuffs to add a little sparkle.
Last but not least - the reveal of my Charlotte Olympia gift! It's a super cute scarf! Someone asked about size - it's a 25" square. To get yours click here for more details from when I first shared.
And that's all! I suspect Instagram's gonna keep me quieter than usual but keep on the lookout for my pics (and tweets) so you can stay up to date with my latest steals and adventures.
I'm linking some of these pieces and similar so you can see how well I did :)
