These Are a Few of My Favorite Things...

When it rains, it pours. So far sample sale season is off to a great start, my mailbox has been full of blogger mail (yay for free stuff!) - and I found Chanel at the Rack. Life is good.

This weekend is Clear the Rack at Nordstrom and I nearly had a heart attack when I found these $750 Chanel flats (with the box!) for just $175 after the extra 30% off! For Chanel that's an unheard of discount. I bet I can dye them black too - but I think I'll keep them blue for now. I do love a pop of color on my feet. (Read how I dyed my Jimmy Choo bag here.)




EVA NYC just launched their hair products in Old Navy - they sent me an assortment to try as well as this flatiron. The slippers are another recent Rack find. They are by Steve Madden and were $20. Sometimes you gotta splurge. It's funny how $175 for Chanel is practically free but Steve Madden slippers for $20 are a splurge LOL.




At the last Clear the Rack I found these Smashbox lipglosses for just $1.50 each. Can't resist a cheap lippie!




On the Influenster front, my latest VoxBox is by Lancôme. It's everything you need for a complete eye look. Very excited by the purple pencil. Be sure to sign up to get your own free products to review here. They've been sending me boxes that retail for over $100 lately :)




I actually won this $54 Hourglass primer from Influenster. Sometimes they have contests for completing tasks.




Marsquest sent me these amazing mirrored navy sunglasses! You can nab a pair for 35% off till the end of the month with code LeHoarder35. I've been dying for a pair of mirrored sunnies too!




I won this Maggy London illusion top in an Insta giveaway (RV $79) and Mezzanotte sent me their Barolo bag (RV $195) as a holiday gift. The boots are from Macy's Backstage by Betsey Johnson (RV $99). Macy's sent me a giftcard to shop their new outlet store and I was so excited to find these for less than $50! Velvet and glitter? Yes please!!! I've worn them a couple times but so far the pics didn't turn out so I'll just have to keep wearing them until I get a good shot LOL.




And I'm always excited when my POPSUGAR Must Have Box shows up on my doorstep! In their November subscription box they included a lot of "chic entertaining essentials" like the AJ Goods nest wire bowl and Pehr chambray runner.





Ella already made off with the Kendra Scott Elaina rose gold bracelet and Meri Meri star party picks. Thank you POPSUGAR for sending me this #MustHaveBox to try. You can subscribe for just $39.95 - and you can get $5 off your first box with code SHOP5.




And before we get started with my amazing Rebecca Minkoff sample sale finds, I wanted to share this MAC that I thrifted for just $5!!! I'm gonna give it to my sis D for Chanukah :)





That would have been amazing had I not found all of these bags for just $10 on the sample table at the sale!!! I actually gave my sister one of the tassel bags (hers was gray) too - I love gifting cheap Minkoff bags.




And now for my amazing shoe finds! Having giant feet pays off. These runway boots and fur heels were just $40!




I found this fur and wool coat on the sample rack for $50. The back is real fur but the sleeves are faux. It's missing buttons (easy fix) but at least it's finished unlike my $20 coat find last year.



This beach towel was a free gift with purchase. It's a cute oversized towel that was made for Michelle Obama's Drink Up campaign.




I also scored this $145 Cleo glitter wallet on a chain for just $10! I also have a few other odds and ends that I scored on the cheap that you'll be seeing in upcoming outfits. And I also grabbed an extra wallet for a giveaway I'll be having on my Instagram soon! Stay tuned!

Doesn't it looks super cute with my new $695 Bisoux Charlotte Olympia lips flats?! Just nabbed them for $100 at the sample sale. I really almost skipped the sale because they cut me from VIP but when I saw a tweet about cheap flats I ran.




Marc Jacobs was amazing this year! They are discontinuing their Marc by Marc Jacobs line so it was a blowout. I scored this leather collection backpack for $80 - a strap was broken but it cost less than $10 to fix. The scarf, gloves and headband were just $20 each and the $698 Bowery boots were $40!




I have so much more to share but it's gonna have to be for another day! I'm linking up some of these pieces for you to shop. So often I scored inexpensive one of a kind or runway pieces at these sales that make it worth the hours in line and insane crowds. If you have never been to a NYC sample sale - put it on your bucket list.



As for my picks for upcoming sales, I have a few! Nothing I need to hit this week but you can see all of the sales on Racked NY here. As always, be sure you're watching my Insta stories as sales/deals always pop up!

My favorite jewelry sale is back - everything is just $5-25! Lots of great gifts! Take a peek at a previous sale here.

  2. Seriously, that Chanel sale is unheard of!!! I hope other high end brands could do a sale every now and then and not just sell items from their dumpster collections, haha. Thanks for great tips sweetie! :)

    1. They've all been horrible of late. I shop at several in NY and NJ. That being said - every so often a steal pops up but it's so rare. You just have to be in the right place at the right time!

  20. Those Chanel flats are such a good find! I think you should keep them blue, they're such a pretty vibrant color, they would look amazing with either jeans or white jeans. So so pretty!

    1. LOL Tracy the more I engage with others the more I grow. I've been spending a good 2 hours a day on social media and it's starting to pay off. I cut my blogging down to 1x a week just to have the time LOL.
