Am I the only one who finds myself shopping on rainy days? On rainy days I’m either watching catching up on my favorite TV shows, doing my homework or shopping. I just wish my favorite thing to do was free! Yesterday, was a typical New Jersey rainy day and of course I had no homework to do and was obviously in the mood to shop. And it was a good thing I did! I own a few pairs of Marc Fisher shoes and I seriously live by them.
Marc Fisher is a reliable shoe designer. The shoes I own by him have lasted their full life expectancy. Personally, I find his shoes to be affordable compared to other designers. My most recent purchase is a pair of black suede over the knee boot. They were originally $130.00 at Macy’s. They are on sale for $90.30. On top of this deal they are also running a promotion where if you buy 3 pairs of shoes you get 40% OFF or if you buy 2 pairs of shoes you get 30% OFF.
This is the best time of year to buy winter or riding boots for next season! You get the best designers, shoes and deals. The sale ends at Macy’s April 2! Now is the time to stock up on all designer necessities for next season. What better time than a rainy day to get all of the best deals.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
The one day a year people celebrate being Irish even when they’re not (including myself)! This year I went to a pub crawl in New York City. The tickets were $11 that we purchased in advance. They gave us access to all of the different deals they had going on at each bar. The ticket was well worth it.
This ticket saved a lot of money for the day. There were a lot of things included. NYC as some of us know, can get to be pretty pricey. At certain times different drink specials were going on and this is when you would change bars. One of the bars had free Irish food from 6-8pm with the purchase of a ticket.
I bought my t-shirt from Victoria’s Secret! This year they had a small St.Patrick’s Day collection. For most holidays they usually design their own small collections depending on the holiday/season/event. The shirt was only $22, but I used a $10 OFF Angel Reward. It was well worth the $12! I hope everyone celebrated their 1% Irish to the fullest
Just had one of the best pick ups of my life! Stuart Weitzman tan, suede combat boots. They retail at $535. At Saks Fifth Avenue OFF FIFTH in Shrewsbury, NJ I got them for $53.97. Practically free!! I absolutely live for this kind of find. I wasn’t even looking I had just stumbled upon them, they were my size and I immediately knew I had to get them at that price.
Stuart Weitzman collections can be found at Lord and Taylor, Saks Fifth Avenue along with the OFF FIFTH branch, Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, Zappos, Neiman Marcus etc. At your local OFF FIFTH’s and Rack type stores we find that they don’t typically carry full collections which can make it hard to find certain styles or colors of a certain product.
If you didn’t know Stuart Weitzman shoes run anywhere between $200 to over $1,000. For this pair of boots to be marked down as much as they were, they were practically free! It’s always a good feeling purchasing something that we personally know was more expensive and we got it at a discounted price. I am not opposed to shopping at Marshalls, OFF FIFTH’s, Racks etc. It’s always a better feeling getting designer merchandise at a discounted price!!
Check out Lord and Taylor for the end of the season sale! I just recently went to visit their local store by me and found some great deals. I purchased a Free People metallic tank top with matte black hardware originally tagged $78. When I brought it up to the register it totaled out to be $19.50!
That same day, I also purchased a Design Lab black lace tank that was originally tagged at $44. I purchased it for $12! Buys like these are good for going out shirts or wearing them places you don’t mind so much if they get ruined. They are so cheap even a one time use is ok!
Also, they are currently hosting a 70% off select styles of handbags! Lord and Taylor carries nice designer handbags and if you can get one at 70% off why not! It’s the perfect time to shop for a new spring/summer bag. Make the most of these end of the season sales while we can!
My brother and I are very close and his birthday just recently passed. I always try to get him valuable presents, that are useful and won’t lose it’s value! Especially, since I am a crazed designer fan most presents I give are designer! A lot of people say that they are horrible at gift giving. I like to think I am a good gift giver. The way I go about gift giving is when a family member or friend says that they want something I instantly write it down to resort back to when it’s time to give a gift.
For my brother’s birthday, I decided to splurge a little and get him Gucci Slides. Gucci Slides are no different than other slides like Nike or Adidas. You’re strictly paying for the name and look of the shoe. I knew they were something that he really wanted. They come in white and black with green and red stripes on them. Obviously, not the most appealing color combination, but if you are a Gucci enthusiast these are a better choice then Adidas and Nike slides.
The slides retail at $190. Fortunately, I work for a company that sells Gucci and was able to use my employee discount on them! Although, with the perk of the employee discount I still had to pay shipping and handling which could become costly if they end up not fitting and I have to return them and re-order them in a different size. Overall, I paid including shipping $110. This is a great deal considering its about a $80 difference from the full retail price of the slides.
My advice to you to receive the best discounts on designer, work for a company that sells it and use that employee discount!
I am so happy to announce my latest purchase! The Rockie mini leather duffel bag by Alexander Wang! First of all, this is something I have wanted for awhile now and was waiting to find the right price and color combination. The color is perfect. It is a very light shade of khaki green. The color is subtle and can be worn with both black and brown outfit choices. There is also silver hardware matching the top zipper that is located on the bottom of the bag.
Alexander Wang’s pieces have a distinct style to them. His statement pieces include the stud hardware on the bottom of the bags. Some of the bags get really creative with the coloring of the bag to match the hardware on the bottom.
The best part about getting what you want, is getting the price you want it at! This bag retails at $535. I purchased this bag for $300. This is practically 40% off the retail price! I am a big shopper and have found a lot of good designer deals at Saks Fifth Avenue OFF FIFTH. And if you know what you’re looking for and know what the price should be, than you will locate all of your fabulous finds!
Every girl needs a pair of black pumps. Whether it’s for daytime or night life use. These Michael Kors black open side heel are $60! Fully retailed at $100. They’re the perfect heel for job interviews, a nice dinner or dressed down with a pair of denim. They aren’t too high which is always good!
I know when heel shopping, pointy can sometimes be a problem as far comfort. The opening on the side of the heel is more comfortable in my opinion. It doesn’t squish your toes as much either. Another thing I wanted to point out about them is the heel. The heel starts wider and gets slimmer as most pumps do, but these are definitely not as drastic of an arch for your foot. You are not straining as much in your foot with this specific heel.
This heel also comes in a variety of sizes! Since, this pump is comfortable I wouldn’t mind picking up other colors! Not only does it come in black at Marshall’s, but also nude. Nude is perfect for everyday use just like black. They can be dress up or down! Overall, this is a great pump, comfort and looks wise!!
