Deals & Steals

(1) Sigerson Morrison heels $69.99, TJ Maxx (So sorry about the sensor in the pic!) (2) Nine West handbag $36.99, TJ Maxx

I made a quick stop at TJ Maxx and Marshalls last week. There were some amazing deals, as usual, but I tried my best to control the impulse to splurge just because it's cheap haha I found a pair of Sigerson Morrison heels with a cute little bow for $69.99 and a foldover handbag (Foley + Corinna inspired) by Nine West for $36.99. The heels were so adorable, if only it was cheaper and in my size!! I walked out with only one item, a Harlow tee for $14.99! Omg, if you're familiar with this brand then you know how ridiculously comfy their tees feel. I've heard it described as "superfine tissue" soft (as in the good brand of Kleenex :P). This L.A. based label, now known as Monrow, is quite popular with the celebs. One tee could cost up to $106 at luxury retailers such as Bloomingdales and Nordstroms. Yikes, I'm not sure if I can bring myself to drop that much for ONE tee no matter how soft to the touch they feel. What about you guys? Do you have any favorite "tissue paper soft" tees that you swear by?

Gianni Bini Dress, Dillards

I also made a stop at Dillards. They had an awesome additional 50% off on reduced priced dresses! Granted that they're from the summer stock, there were still some that could translate well to the cooler weather:) I've been eyeing this graffitti inspired dress by Gianni Bini all summer. It was the last one on the rack and costs only $23.99 after discount, BUT I couldn't hold up the dress due to my modest upper body:( I would have loved to wear this with black tights and a military style coat such as the Rue Royale ($72) from Fred Flare (in black of course)...

I spied some gorgeous chiffon dresses by M.S.S.P. (same company as Max Studio) for under $75! I'm not sure if the sale event is still ongoing, but ladies, it's worth checking out Dillards online ;)

  2. hi, tris1978ton! thank u! i love the colors, too:) yes, it's me in the pic hehe but the dress was a bit big on the bust area. i was actually standing really straight and holding the back to try to hold it up while i snapped a quick pic haha this pic is a bit deceiving ;)
