The cape isn't the best fit - especially with a crossbody bag. I've always felt like it needed another button in front but for the $25 it cost me at the sample sale I can deal. And I always like to leave the house with a penny find so I mixed my spiked bracelet in with my Chanels.
So many people ask how I got my brand new Chanel bag for under $1,000. (You can read the story here.) The trick with bargain hunting is to always be open and shop ahead. If you look for something when you need it, you're never going to find it - unless you're willing to pay retail. If you're picky and impatient, sale shopping is not for you. I will wait years till I find what I want, and I'm always open with color or style for the price that I'm willing to pay. The downside is that often gorgeous pieces can sit in my closet for a year or two until I found the perfect outfit to match. The upside is that I can always shop my closet should a party or special event arise. I pretty much always have something to wear :)
Honestly, it's really all about being in the right place at the right time. The more you shop, the more likely you are to find.

Photos are by Belle of LittleFashionStylist - thanks doll! We met for lunch at byChloe (again!) and once again I had my go-to quinoa taco salad. It's sooooo good. It has this agave lime dressing that just pulls it all together. A good dressing makes or breaks a salad and theirs is spot on! The first time I told Belle to meet me at byChloe she thought I meant to meet me by the Chloe (designer) store. It's my fault because it didn't occur to me that she didn't know what I was talking about LOL. It's one of those places that once you know about it, you just don't understand why everyone else doesn't know yet. They have a few locations in NY and LA - so if you're into Kosher or Vegan, I highly recommend!
I'm so excited for a few sales happening next week! I already mentioned my faves in the last post here so I'll be out and about shopping - be sure to follow my Insta stories for an insider look into the sales as I shop :)
Have a great weekend!
