Tuesday, February 17, 2015-The Savvy Shopper….End of season steals and deals!!!

Good Morntiing!

Happy Tuesday Bizzies!!  For those of you that don’t know, but need to know, it’s that time of year…Fall/Winter sale season!  This  is the time to shop for the best deals and steals on  some of those must-have pieces you had to defer to your wish list because you had to get your holiday shopping out-of-the-way first.   Well, retailers have just wrapped  up their inventory and are looking to practically give away items that didn’t sell out during the holiday season.  In the world of fashion, it’s time to make room for the new arrivals for spring, but in the real world, or at least some parts of the world, it is still cold as…cold!   So, with that said, let the deal hunting begin on hot items and season must haves like coats, boots, handbags, jewelry and cocktail dresses.

Here are a couple of wardrobe must-haves I scored, over the last couple of weeks, for half price or more !!

Cool Coats:

Michael Kors Camel coat…Bloomingdales

This coat, for me, was love at first site!  I absolutely love the color and the removable faux fur collar.  I immediately knew that this was a wardrobe must-have.   My first thought was that this coat would be really cute with a  pair of black skinny jeans, a denim top and brown boots and belt matched up with a Louis Vuitton bag to create a chic, clean, classic and fun denim look.   It doesn’t get that cold here in southern Cali for the faux fur collar, I still love having the option to switch up the look of the coat by adding  it when traveling up north to San Francisco or back east.  I all about maximizing my wardrobe pieces.  It enhances the need! lol. The style and cut of this coat is classic and it has a tailored fit.  I’ll definitely be able to wear it for many winters to come.

My Funky-Faux Furry coat…Forever 21.  Another must-have.  This year we saw faux-fur everywhere, dressed up and down. I grabbed this jacket 1-because of the amazing color and 2-because of the versatility of it, which, again makes for a great buy.

This coat would also be a great piece paired with jeans and a cute top or sweater for an effortless chic look or dress it up to top of a more sophisticated look…perhaps with a dress or one of my fave pieces, a jumper.

My long Berry jacket!  Loooves!  This is another classic cut piece in an amazing color.  I tend to shop by style, versatility and then price.  So, when I saw this one on the rack, it too screamed take me with you!  lol.  I didn’t have to think twice because both of these coats were apart of Forever 21’s  buy one get one free clearance sale!  Yep, true story!!!  See, having style isn’t always about the label.  Simply put, it’s either a hot piece…or nah!


Haute shoes:

Shoe sale at Macy’s.  Markdowns…unbelievable!  I actually walked in to just grab a cute pair to wear with jeans and I walked out with THREE. Smh.

Bar III, Steve Madden and Michael Kors all have a new home in my closet.

I needed a reeaally cute pair of heels to wear with my skinny jeans and a pair I can wear with a dress or pencil skirt.  Scored!  I didn’t pay more than $100 each for either of these.

These are my favorite, Michael Kors. I though they were very sophisticated.  I love the gold detail and the zipper up the back.  The heel is not too high and they gave off a very retro and feminine vibe.  I couldn’t leave them!  I figured these would be perfect with a fit and flare dress or skirt.  A must-have for sure!

Zara shoes and boots.  Another moment where I walked in for one thing and walked out with four!  I really don’t have a shopping problem, but…it is that time of year! It was mark down city in Zara.  How could I not??


I looove these two-tone, snake-skinned embossed pair.  This was another love at first site moment.  Everything about this shoe spoke to me…and then I tried them on.  They fit perrrfect!  $39.99.  Yep, that’s all!

I also, scored a pair of gold-colored knee boots.  Jeans, an over-sized sweater and a scarf or a cute knit dress and denim vest would be so cute with these. Loves!

Okay, so this piece was the reason I was stopping by Zara. I casually walked in to see what they had one day in the summer and spotted this piece from across the room  I haaad to have it!  Since then I wore this necklace e-v-ery chance I got.  I mean, I almost wore it out!  So, being that it is mark down season I decided to drop in a grab another.  My local Zara didn’t have it….which is how I winded up buying shoes.  Yeah.  Anyhoo, I found out that the necklace had gone from $29.99, which is what I paid in the summer, to $9.99!  It was on!!!!  I had to find out which store had it and get one asap! I called ahead and had them to hold two for me.  There were three left. I decided to leave one so someone else would be able to share the joy of owning this fabulous piece.  It’s a beautiful tri-metal piece that allows you to wear it with gold, silver, pewter or all three.

It looks a-mazing on!  I usually pair it with silver and gold bangles.   I get compliments on the ensemble all the time.  I am so obsessed with this piece!


Okay, so there you have it, these are all a few of my new favorite things!  Are you a savvy shopper?  Do you have a shopping season?  Please share some of your deals and steals with us!  Stay tuned to see what looks I’ve created with these new additions to my wardrobe.
