I believe fashion should be accessible, so I love stores like Ross that offer discounted prices. I love a good deal in general, and I've been known to scour racks to find the perfect treasure. And resale shops...don't even get me started. Love!
I've always loved a good sale, but now I'm in my first year of marriage, and we're definitely not looking to break the bank. Looking for a good deal is practical, but I also find it oh-so fun and rewarding. Don't you just love when someone compliments a piece of yours and you think, "Oh, yeah! 75 percent off!" Is it just me? Seriously...it can't be.
Today's outfit, for example: the blazer, clutch, sweater, and jeans were all resale finds, the boots were 25% off during a cyber Monday sale, and the cami was part of a buy one get one half off special.
On top of it all, I found some great pieces at Ross today. I believe I'd have to say that a charcoal Jessica Simpson beret for $6 was my favorite find...and it retails for $25! Le sigh... I really do swoon over a good deal!
Unfortunately, my camera battery died before I could finish taking outfit pictures, such as photos with my blazer and scarf and close-ups of all my accessories, but I'll still detail what I wore in its entirety.
So...do you love a good deal, or do you shop on impulse? Do you savor the sale, or do you buy that have-to-have item regardless if you have to pay full price? Thoughts?
