Right before I went to Tamara Mellon I went downtown to a Dove Friendship Suite pop-up. I actually love Dove deodorant so I was happy to check out their new dry spray which they were promoting. As a couponer and bargainista there are very few brands I am loyal to, but I truly feel Dove is so much better than other brands. Keeps me dry all day and leaves very little residue on my clothing. I love their sticks (any variety) and I use it everywhere. It may be TMI but I use it on my thighs for my chub-rub and on my feet when I'm breaking in new shoes (no blisters!)
And the most exciting part - Dove partnered with Rocksbox and gifted me this spiked out necklace by Slate! At first I was like - do I have to send it back? If you're not familiar with Rocksbox, it's a subscription service (like Rent the Runway) where you borrow jewelry for a monthly fee. They assured me it was free and I graciously accepted :)
ETA: if you want to try Rocksbox use code shoppinggalxoxo for the next few weeks and get your first month free!
I actually had a choice from all of these but this is the one that popped for me.
I'm betting my nieces are feeling really stupid right now for not joining me...
In addition to the Rocksbox display, they also had a makeup station, photo booth and a mailing station where you could mail a friend a free deodorant. I sent one to my sister but I kinda regret not sending it to myself LOL.
I've been picking up more 90% off bits and pieces at Century 21 this week so it's really not too late to take a peek and get lucky. At this point your best bet is to head to the downtown location but you may find a stray return floating around the other stores.
My most exciting C21 finds this week include my brother's $1500 Zegna leather and nylon moto-jacket that I scored for just $65 and super cute $589 Lanvin bow heels for $29. So cute.
Don't worry - my complete haul and extras (blog sale!) are coming :)
Target has been pretty productive. I've been stalking this Magna mountain bike for my son for weeks. It was hanging out at 50% off and you know that's not good enough for me. Finally hit 70% off - got it for $29.98!
For the past couple years I've missed out on this jewelry armoire - finally scored one for 70% off! I took it home in black but I picked up a white one the following week. Still have not decided which one to keep...
I waited for 90% off Valentines clearance because I was too busy with 90% off at Century. I still managed to find a bunch of goodies.
Thanks to a tip on All Things Target I managed to find a shelf-full hiding in plain sight in the toy department. These Princess Sophia Play-doh sets rang up just $.69 each.
The Rack has been pretty dead of late (some designer event, right?) but with this last round of markdowns I managed to find a bunch of penny stuff :)
Filled up my cart with these $58 Michael Kors espadrilles for my girls - guess what they'll be wearing for the next few years LOL.
I've been saving something really special for my next giveaway but I found so many of these bras that I actually has an impromptu giveaway on Instagram to my followers. Just sharing the wealth :)
Found these $460 Pedro Garcia satin pumps actually marked $0.01 - love when they take the guesswork out of the equation LOL.
And my favorite penny find was this $330 Rebecca Minkoff silver triangle Rex clutch that I'd noticed hanging around for a while. At this point I can spot them a mile away. Like I always say, just look for the old stuff.
Not a penny, these Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue perfume sets were marked down to just $12! Guess what everyone is getting for their birthday this year?
This week I had to finally say goodbye to my Chanel cuff :( My friend's dad does the repairs for the Chanel NYC boutiques so I had him look at the cuff and he sent me to the downtown boutique thinking they would pay for the repair or replace it. Unfortunately they told me they would have to charge me $80 to repair it (only boutique purchases are guaranteed for a year) and it probably would never be the same. I took it back the Neiman Marcus where I purchased it and was refunded. I didn't want a refund - I just want a Chanel bracelet (for the 75% off that I paid) that won't break in two seconds. Sigh.
|Goodbye old friend :(|
On a happier note, if you can get to NYC, it's not too late to head over to Tamara Mellon - sale ends on Sunday! Check out 260 Sample Sale (or my previous blog post) for more info.
Have a great weekend!
