My Sale Buys for $20 and Under...

This week I received orders I placed online recently with New York & Company (during the sales they had this past week) and an order from Macy's (I just happened to be browsing the sale section and found some great brands for CHEAP)! In total all these items cost me $111.92...not bad at all! Sales and clearances are my BFF (best friend forever) if you haven't been able to tell by now! :)

Sale Price: $19.99
Original Price: $49.95
I LOVE New York & Co. jeans. I have one pair a bought awhile back and I wear them all the time! Couldn't resist these super soft skinnies. They are made of a light weight denim and stretchy...a bit like jeggings I suppose. I definitely recommend them if you are looking for a nice pair of jeans for spring!

The 7th Avenue Crop Pant- White
Sale Price: $19.97
Original Price: $39.95
I had a pair of white capris from NY&Co. that I got back in 2008. They bit the dust after lots of wear. White linen capris are a wardrobe must-have so I needed to replace them of course!

Sale Price: $19.99
Original Price: $69.50
Love this cute light weight Calvin Klein sweater! It could probably be worn mostly year round because its not a super heavy knit. The doloman sleeves and slouchy-ness make it super comfy too!

Style & Co., Petite Jeans, Back Shaping Slim Black Wash
Sale Price: $19.99 (I actually paid a $21.99, but these jeans are now a few bucks cheaper)
Original Price: $46.00
I'm 5'4" and always have a hard time finding jeans that don't drag on the ground. These are the perfect length for me! With the price so cheap it was impossible to pass them up. They are a really nice dark wash too!

Lucky Brand Prairie Three Quarter Sleeve Lace Back Henley *SOLD OUT*
Sale Price: $14.99
Original Price: $59.50
I bought this in the melon cover shown above as well as in navy blue. Unfortunately this is sold out on already so I couldn't post the link for this one!

New York & Co. & Macys are two of my favorite places to browse the sales racks/clearances. As you can see I generally make out pretty well!

Where are your favorite places to shop for deals?

Things I Love: Ruffles!

I discovered GussySews months ago while browsing blogs and am in love with all of, the shop owner, Maggie's adorable ruffled creations! I am also a regular reader of Maggie's blog (it's one of my head on over and check it out)! As a '09 college grad I am still trying to figure out my life (a.k.a find my dream job) and Maggie is one twenty-something I am definitely inspired by! She left her job last year to work on something she loved full-time (that something being her Gussy creations of course). On a side note, she has an adorable puppy, Bauer (I'm such a sucker for dogs...really).

P.S.- The blog Modern Frills is giving reader's a chance to win $30 shop credit to Gussy! Hurry up Iif your drooling over these ruffles as much as I am, Modern Frills is choosing the lucky winner this Tuesday March 29th!

Sale Shopping!

It's been awhile since I have posted a haul of my deals. Some of the items in this post are from all the way back in DECEMBER! I know, I know... I've been a slacker! :)

Last weekend I went to Kohl's and picked up this cute Nine & Co. giraffe print wallet. I got it to go with my beloved Giraffe Print Medium Sac Dooney&Bourke! I didn't want to splurge $100+ dollars on a wallet so this find was PERFECT! It was on sale and I had a 30% coupon so ended up getting the Nine & Co. wallet for around $9! Sure can't beat a price like that!

Nine & Co. Giraffe Trifold Wallet

The next three shirt are from an impromptu trip I took to the mail last night. I needed to get new tires on my car and there was a mall right by the tire place...obviously I had to go shopping! Especially since I had some coupons to use. I'm thrifty so can't pass up the opportunity to use coupons that I know will end up getting me great deals.

Recently New York & Company sent me a $10 coupon with no required spending limit. I found the top below on clearance for $14.99. Yup, so I only paid $4.99 for it!

New York & Co. Twist V-Neck Top

I also had a $10 coupon and a 15% off coupon for JCP. Found two sweaters on the sale racks and got a fabulous deal on them!

Novelty Yarn Sweater by ALYX $11.54

Liz Claiborne sweater $4.60

The last few items I bought from JCP during the end of 2010... just forgot to post them at the time.

I Heart Ronson tweed moto jacket $20.60

East 5th sweater/top (similar here) $8.69
