Fall is in the Air

Fall is swiftly approaching and Crossroads had three things I couldn't leave the store without. First I found the plaid studded long sleeve button down. It was priced at $13.50 and had that wonderful half off stamp so I got it for $6.75! It is long enough to wear with just leggings for a not so cold day, or it will be perfect to layer in those chilly autumn nights. Next I found the black low back American Apparel tank for $7.00. It is finished with an over-edge seam in a pale pink thread which gives it a little pop of color; a girl can never have enough black tops! Last but not least, my favorite, brown leather Carlos ankle boots that I got for $23.00. These can be worn with anything and have such beautiful embroidered designs all around the top. TI am so excited for fall and the deals I will find throughout the season.

Floral For Spring!

I haven't blogged in a while due to family emergencies but im back! I picked up these beautiful floral Sam Edelman "Tate" wedges at Crossroads the other day. I am attending a wedding in two weeks and these might be the perfect shoe for my copper dress. They were priced online at $155.00 and I got them for $25.00! I love finds like these and I hope if anyone comes across a crossroads, they check it out because it is definitely one of the best deal hideaways there are!

Shopping Genius Indeed

This has got to be one of the best buys I have gotten! The emerald green silk and spandex cape dress from Haute Hippie was originally $425.00 and I got it got $63.75! The nude Steve Madden wedges were originally $89.95, and I walked away paying $17.90! Nordstrom rack had so many great deals, the store just requires patients and ambition. I got very lucky with both items and cant wait to pack them for my upcoming Vegas trip!

Tribal Sweater

This warm and cosy Free People tribal sweater seemed like it was jumping out at me at Nordstrom Rack. Just as I headed towards the dressing room, there it was, separate from all of the other clothes on the rack. I walked over and saw the price tag of $17.70! I knew this sweater was worth much more and it was, it was compared at $110.00! I tried it on and it fit perfect! On me it was long enough that on a warmer day, I could wear it with just boots and as a dress, or I could match it was some leggings. The Rack always has great finds for super cheep prices!

Crossroads Grand Slam

You know those days when you are on your way home after a long days work and your wondering if you should make that quick shopping trip? Well today I did and am so happy that I decided to go! Crossroads really hit it out of the park with what they had today. I found the black leather Jeffrey Campbell heels that were marked at $22.00... then I saw the fabulous half off stamp!!! They came out to $11.25 and I couldn't be happier. Next was the green snakeskin clutch which I got that for only $8.50. The black and gold cotton striped Free People top was $12.50. Last but certainly not least, this black and blush dress fits beautifully and is so unique and I got it for $13.50. The wapping grand total was $49.75 and that is a major deal if I have ever seen one!

Jeffrey Campbell and Bracelets

This was one of the best finds I have possibly ever had! My last trip to The Closet, I scored big with these Jeffrey Campbell leather studded boots and these three bangles. The boots were seen online for $285.00, and I got them very lightly used for $38.00! I know its spring, but I couldn't resist. I also got the bangles for $4.00 a piece and I have seen similar bracelets for at least $20.00 at other stores. I always find such great deals at The Closet, and I hope some of you check it out!

Urban Wedges

These were just what I was looking for and I am so happy that I found them so cheep! Urban Outfitters  has a bunch of shoes, including these, on sale. It gets better... all of the shoes are half off the sale price! These Kimchi Blue brown suede wedges were originally $59.99, marked down to $39.99, and half off equaling $19.99! These are great for just a little added height, and they basically feel like you are walking in flats because of the subtle  arch.

Warehouse Sale

The first Saturday of every month, the M. Fredric warehouse in Agoura Hills has an amazing sale. This last Saturday I wend with my girlfriend and found some great deals. The options weren't as large as usual but there were Winter and Spring selections and I was able to walk away with two great buys. There are mens, women's, and children's clothing available at the sales just like the stores. The first thing I saw was a pale yellow cotton Lunoluz dress originally $129.00 marked down to $10.00! The next was a M. Fredric cotton tribal top marked from $36.00 down to $15.00. I know I will be attending the next warehouse sale event and I hope that anyone who loves M. Fredric as much as I do will too.

DIY Beach Shorts

When going to the beach, you wanna wear something thats comfortable, cool, and fashionable all at the same time. These shorts are simple to make and for me they didn't cost a dime! First I was organizing my dads closet for him and came across the vintage Levis. He told me I could toss them and I thought that these would be perfect for this project. If you dont have an old pair of jeans at home then any vintage store should have some. For this project, I like jeans that have buttons, not zippers. All you need is sizers, jeans, and studs or fabric (which I didn't use). In my opinion, the older the jeans the better! Try them on and see where you would like the length to be. Shoot for about a half inch longer then you want because you can always go shorter! Fold them in half and begin the cutting one leg at a time. if you want, you can make a cut about an inch on each side for some more room. The more you wear and wash them, the more they will fray at the bottom. Try them on and leave unbuttoned and folded over with your bathing suite underneath for a great beach look!

Oversized Comfy T

Urban Outfitters always has these great jersey cotton oversized tops on sale. Right now they have an abundance of them. I love the floral with the black background on this one for Spring. Its sometimes difficult to wear black in spring but I think with some pastel shorts, this will be a cute outfit. It was originally $39.00, and I bought it for $14.99. The quality isn't the bese with ends unstiched, but I love to throw these types of tops on for a cute stylish look, but also they are sooo soft and comfortable, you cant beat it!

Cross Body Clutch Purse

This cross body bag is the perfect size for a night on the town or an active day out. I bought this bag at Free People on sale for 19.99 when it was originally $48.00. Unfortunately it is not available anymore, but I think it is still on sale in some free standing stores. The straps are adjustable to make the purse longer or shorter to fit your preference. It can be worn over the shoulder, across the body, or the straps can be tucked in for a clutch.There are two separate sections inside, as well as a zipper pouch. It is faux leather so you wont have to worry about any animals being harmed with this one.
