I have never loved a pair of sunglasses more. I think they would be considered an aviator. I wasn’t looking for sunglasses when I stumbled upon them, but when I saw them I had to get them. Of course the price was just right especially for Alexander McQueen.
They were retailed at $500. I saw them at my local Saks Fifth Avenue OFF FIFTH. They were prices at $119. For this price I had to get them because I knew I would never see them again. Not only that, but at most outlet stores they usually don’t come with a case because vendors feel they’re giving such a great deal they tend to exclude the case.
Luckily, these bad boys came with the case and a cloth to clean them! My only complaint with the mirror lens is they do get dirty quite easily and caught in my hair often. But they look so cool on and they’re so unique compared to the average aviator that it doesn’t matter!
Spring has just begun and it’s been so busy! I have a destination wedding to attend along with a formal. These events include dress and shoe shopping because of course I don’t have anything already to wear (not). It gives us a reason to buy new things! With that being said, I am still left without a dress for both events BUT found an amazing deal on the shoes I plan to wear to both of course. I bought a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels at an unbelievable price.
These pumps come in 3 colors and are very limited in sizes. I purchased the tie dye pair because how can you not?! They also come in all white and rainbow. The tie dye pair is very unique and different looking which is why I chose this pair. This pair of heels can be paired with a number of different color dresses. I am solely revolving my dress choice around these shoes!
Now, getting to the best part. The price. Originally ticketed at $695. On saks0ff5th.com they were on sale for $249.99. Better yet with the discount code the website offers for 48 hours you get an additional 15% off! This comes to $211.95! For this pair of shoes this is an insane deal. I personally could not pass this deal up. For that reason, my dress choice will be revolved around these shoes!
Over the weekend my mom and I were shopping for new everyday shoes. I was looking for a replacement pair of slip-on sneakers that are easy to put on for class or when running errands. My mom was looking for new everyday work shoes (which she found at Macy’s). Anyways, I ended up buying a pair of Steve Madden slip-on sneakers that were very casual, but cute for casual wear. They came to $59.98 at Macy’s.
Let me tell you, THE most uncomfortable pair of Steve Madden shoes I have ever purchased. I have always loved Steve Madden for inexpensive shoes because they are fashionable, inexpensive and usually quite comfortable. This was not the case for this pair sneakers. I wore them for a few hours and my feet felt like they were going to fall off. I ended up having to put bandaids on the back of my heels because they were actually bleeding.
I have never had such an experience with Steve Madden shoes. I will continue buying his shoes, but I was shocked when this happened. I ended up having to return the shoes because I honestly couldn’t bear the thought of having to wear them again. And personally, I am not the type of person AT ALL to return something after using/wearing it, but this was a rare case.
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.
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!!
