Friday Steals and Deals

Happy Friday! I decided to start a Friday post to give you some buzz on deals that I’ve found and/or sales that are happening through the weekend.

I had a friend text me earlier this month asking if I knew where she could find the Vince Allison Leather Mule for a more reasonable price. Challenge accepted! I used some clever search skills and found an exact pair for, get this, $50 bucks! Can you spot the real deal?

The shoe on the left is your real deal Vince Allison Mule $217
The shoe on the right (which also comes in Ivory, click link to pick your color) is your Steal ShoeMint Miller $49.99

I definitely couldn’t resist and had to order the ShoeMint pair! Even better, you can get 20% through the Friends and Family deal by using code ‘Family20’ – You can thank me later 🙂

Crop Top and Skirt Set

Hope everyone is having a great week! I am in LOVE with this crop top and skirt set, it’s such a “no-brainer” to go for a set when you want to look put together and make your outfit choice easy. I found the piece above at Forever 21, funny story behind that…I literally searched at least 5 different Forever 21 stores in order to find my size! Yes – I was that crazy over this because I had the perfect occasion to wear it to, a baby shower for my best friend who is expecting (you guessed it) a baby boy. The blue was perfect and the outfit is an easy day-time piece. Luckily I didn’t deliberately drive all over town to find my size; I travel quite a ton for work so I like to check out the local stores in the evening. I finally found my size at a Forever 21 in Modesto, California!

Unfortunately the Forever 21 website currently only has the crop top in stock, it looks like they might replenish the skirt though. You can find the crop top here and place yourself on the wait list for the skirt here. The great thing about Forever 21 is that their prices are AMAZING! The not so great part is that all items sell out very quickly, so if you see it you better grab it. I like to purchase trendy and seasonal items at Forever 21 because of the great price. Always remember, spend a considerable amount on good quality staples and look for deals on items that are seasonal.

If you haven’t noticed by now, I have a serious love for finding deals. Any time I find something at a great price it’s like I’ve just won my own little lottery. With this blog I hope to give you all more tips and deals/steals as I get better at this whole “blogging business”. Thus far, I hope you are enjoying my outfit posts!

To make up for the lack of stock in this Forever 21 skirt, I have compiled a few great sets for you below (click on image to see details).

Also, a fun website I discovered for price-point fashion items is CHICWISH. They have two great sets I am LOVING as well:

1. Retro Rose Crop top and Skirt

2. Check Chic Crop top and Skirt

With all the recent buzz around the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I found myself not feeling ready to let go of Summer quite yet. Don’t get me wrong I think the sale is amazing for those staple Fall pieces that will only be on sale TODAY, but by the time Fall actually rolls around (September for most) you will probably see 500 more Fall trends that you absolutely have to buy. With the recent heat swarming most cities, none of us are ready to let go of our Summer wardrobe quite yet. Thus, I have dedicated this post to the ultimate Summer go-to piece, a free-flowing white dress. The one I am wearing above is actually an “oldie but goodie” from my closet, and to be honest I haven’t worn it in almost 2 years (I have had the dress for 4 years now, yikes). Thankfully, this little blog of mine has allowed me to dig back into my closet and share some creativity with you all, or just realize that fashion is versatile and trends always come back in full circle.

Do you have an “oldie but goodie” in your closet that you haven’t worn in a while? I challenge you to try to find ways to reincorporate your older items back into today’s trends. This dress speaks for itself, but I paired it with a gladiator sandal for a laid back Bohemian vibe. I added some color with my straw clutch which has pom poms as decor – Pom Poms are everywhere this Summer!

Since I was unable to link this direct dress for you all, I have found a few white Summer dresses that are current. Let me know what you think!

Have a great week!

Howdy! Hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! I spent the weekend in Newport Beach with some friends, and I gotta say it was quite the party. I had an amazing time boozing by the beach (because that’s the thing to do for America’s Birthday, duh), but I am extra excited about finally relaxing this upcoming weekend. Maybe I will get a massage – extra relaxation and who doesn’t love em!?

I came across this EXTREMELY flattering dress at LOFT about two weeks ago. I knew I had to have it! It is super light, and perfect for summer. It can also be worn for work or on date night! I scored it during a great sale, and if you sign up for LOFT’S email blasts you might be able to get it on sale as well. Right now they are offering 25% off if you sing up and become a LOFT insider (wink, wink).

Enjoy your week and happy shopping!
