1) I choose a lot of classics that I wear foreverrrr. I still have several things from college that I wear, and lots from the early 2000's.
2) I'm not wrapped up in name brands. I will shop anywhere.
3) I get a few nicer, higher priced items a year as gifts for Christmas or my birthday that hold up well and last a long time.
4) The majority of what I buy is off of clearance racks and prices range from $3 to $15.
When it comes to clothes (and many things actually) I am a "variety is the spice of life" kind of girl. Because of these four factors and creative mixing and matching of clothing pieces and accessories, I get to enjoy my little clothes hobby. I could take you through my closet and show you item after item that I got for under $10.00. But the other day I got one of the best deals of my life, and I have got to share it with you!
I was celebrating my friend Liz's birthday - she wanted to go to her favorite wing place, and then to some outlets. Sounded perfect to me! We had a ball! While in the Coldwater Creek outlet, I saw a rack of belted of shirtdresses with a sign for $5.99, then another sign for an additional 40% off. Sure enough, when my dress and belt rang up, the grand total for both was (are you ready for this)...
Liz and I were cracking up at the register, and I had that happy rush that I get from deal finding! Liz actually found two dresses for $2.99 apiece, and we both found gorgeous leather belts that were originally around $40 for $1.99. Then at a shoe outlet, we both found adorable plaid fall flats for $7.00. They are actually perfect for this little dress!
