The Vera Wang sample sale had some amazing discounts! These $800 Riley sandals were mine for just 25 bucks :) They sold out of most larger sizes so these were the only shoes that came home with me.
I tried on a $5000 fur jacket that would have been $175 but it was too crazy for me - and that says a lot. I love this $1895 menswear inspired wool coat - those cut out shoulders totally sold me. Then I saw Kiley Jenner in pics wearing it to fashion week and it went down a notch or two. But it's really cool - so cool that when the male sales associate saw me in it - he ran and grabbed a larger size for himself LOL. Stay tuned for Fashion Week where we'll have our own who wore it better :)
It looks really expensive...and did I mention it was just $100?!
I went a little crazy at the jewelry table but in my defense, you should see what some of my friends came back with. I was immediately drawn to the bugs so I snapped up the necklace for $37.50 and pins for $20 each. As you can see on the tag, the bug brooches retailed for $395 each. Some of the necklaces retailed for over $1,000 but this is the only one that really spoke to me. All the bracelets were $20 as well. The earrings were $10 and I really only grabbed them because they were cuter than the $5 tee shirts - and I had to purchase 10 items to get the 50% off promotion.
I seriously regret either not getting to this sale a day earlier - and not grabbing more jewelry.
Nordstrom Rack has been serving up quality over quantity recently - here are a few of my recent Clear the Rack finds. This $965 Elizabeth and James Iris oversized Mongolian lamb fur collared coat was just under $60 after discount. Crazy!
My $925 Pologeorgis rabbit and goat fur vest came out to under $39!
And my Alice & Olivia $698 Tina metallic ballgown skirt came out to less than $40 - that's cheaper than sample sale pricing!
I haven't been doing a lot of thrifting of late but I did find this Zara pea coat for $12.50 (it was half price). Other than a tan coat, I'm all set for next season!
So while most of these deals have come and gone I'm linking up some similar pieces on sale so you can score too!
