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!
