(Steve Madden pumps originally $99, marked down to price shown w/ an additional 35% off making them a steal at $24. Needed a nice pair of black heels for some events coming up!)
I also love closeout stores. So, where I live we have Dillard's department stores, and there are these magical "Dillard's close out stores." Take every sale item from all of those Dillard's, marked down as low as they get, and put them all in one building. BOOM! Designer, name brand products, marked down to final sales prices. This is where you'll find the best deals, but you have to have time to dig, and unfortunately, not many of them offer returns. If you don't have Dillard's, I'm sure there are other stores similar near to you!
(Gianni Bini sweater, originally around $60, purchased for $10)
It's finally getting cold(er) in southern Louisiana, so a cutesy sweater like this, with the dainty beading was a no brainer for $10!
(Jolt Skirt -exact link found, now only $17 online!)
I work in the cosmetics industry and my wardrobe consists of mostly black. I picked this up because it's versatile, and now I'll also have another piece of clothing to mix and match for work (going back to buying within reason)!
$8 Pom Pom beanie found at Forever21, okay, this was too cute to pass up!
$12 Nine West leggings found at Marshall's. This is half the price of what they are usually!
Alright, and the Dolce Floral Drops is a cheat. This was actually a gift from my friend, you guys! So I am not "ballin'" as hard as you may have thought..ha! and I received it on the same day as all of the other goodies. It made sense, in my mind, to take a picture of the products all together, but after the fact I realized "Dolce" perfume isn't exactly budget friendly, but smells so yummy!
Overall, this splurge on myself (not including the gifted perfume) cost me a whopping $71! That's $20 LESS than the Steve Madden heels ALONE. If you scout out some good stores and dedicate the time to digging, you'd be amazed what you might find! Would you consider yourself a bargain shopper as well? Let me know where you like to shop deals!
