Amazing Deals

This summer, I’ve been working on keeping my shopping to a minimum. Lately, I’ve been researching and stalking items, waiting for the best deal, and not settling for anything that’s priced too high, just because I “need” it. And it’s paying off!


I scored a chic Elie Tahari blazer from Last Call Neiman Marcus for $43 (the original price was $598). It has the perfect fit all around and is long enough for my strangely long arms. The next photo is of a silk dress by Cynthia Steffe for $39.99, down from $298. I didn’t get as good of a deal on the Franco Sarto sandals from Nordstrom, but my total was $50; not bad for leather. The last silk dress is Alice + Olivia for $40 from Last Call Neiman Marcus, down from $298!

So how did I do? Paid $173 for about $1270 worth of merchandise.


Tuesday’s Favorites

This past weekend, I journeyed to Mall of America (I’ll post what I purchased shortly), and realized that I am a total online shopper, so much so that I knew the original prices of lots of things in the stores and couldn’t allow myself to pay anything short of a good deal. Here are my favorite things for today:



Happy Tuesday!


It’s been a while!

For the past few weeks I’ve been moving and organizing as well as settling in to my new internship, which I love! This has truly been the best summer ever and I’ll have more photos and updates coming soon.
