Filed under: My Shopping Finds
So… after the world’s craziest day of drama with the Audi dealership, I was finally able to meet Amy at DSW at Buckhead Station the Friday before her birthday. She was wearing these AMAZING turquoise platform sandals when I arrived, which helped me to shake off the drama I’d just experienced.
I managed to find several great pairs of shoes, all on clearance (and I had two $10 off certificates):
These beautiful open toe suede Penny Loves Kenny platforms were only $40 after all discounts
These electric blue round toe SE Boutique pumps were also around $40 after all discounts
These cute pointy toe black suede studded flats have been the source of lust for quite some time – and they were only $15 after all discounts!!!
Of course, we headed to TJ Maxx next. (For those in Atlanta, this is my absolute favorite TJ Maxx location.) I scored some great pieces:
Red halter swimsuit for only $19.99 – too lazy to photograph but you’ll see some pool pics this summer… I spend as much time as possible there.
Black pencil Skirt for $14.99; navy & red banded Elie Tahari pencil skirts for $24.99; white skirt with button detail (great for my yacht look) for $19.99
On some unrelated shopping trips, I also bought other great pieces at Forever 21:
Rose headband – seen here in dusty rose, but also bought the black one seen on my vanity at $10.80 each. (I did remove both from the “squeeze your skull” metal headbands that they came on.)
Black and ivory flower pins – loving the Chanel-esque look at the bargain price of $6.80 each (shout out to Brenda, Josh and Free Love of the Cumberland Mall XXI store for bending the rules on waiting for a reset, which enabled me to score the ivory pin)
Check out the black flower pin combined with the black birdcage veil that WAS part of the flower headbands (seen above in dusty rose). I just thought who needs a giant flower on the side of their head AND a birdcage veil to cover their face??? I (shockingly) lack the swag of Gaga… I also apologize for the completely makeup-less and unjeweled state of Michelle here, but I really wanted to get this posted and didn’t have the energy to get dolled up this AM.
Black tulle headband – it’s SO high fashion, especially for only $5.80. Another apology no makeup combined with the hyperpigmentation I’ve suffered at my own hands. I’ve really been doing it up with 10% glycolic acid cream each evening and scrubbing each day. I hope the spots go away soon.
And in a lunchtime web-frenzy I found:
Calvin Klein white and pink cocktail dress – scored this at a Rue La La online sample sale for $59.99. I was JUST lusting for this on the Calvin Klein site last week as I looked for a dress to wear to my friend’s wedding -even at the retail price of $128. Just so you know, I already have this dress in three different colors of satin, and I plan to get it in even more colors! I considered wearing a white version to my wedding, but there was not one made for the Spring 2008 collection.
