Sale Time.

This should come to no surprise but I love to shop, more specifically I love to shop for clothes. Now this can be an expensive habit no doubt but the key word here is can.  You can look awesome and not break the bank you just gotta be smart. See I have come to the realization that in near future I will be out in the real world, wearing big girl clothes that *gulp* I have to pay for.  Let's be honest here the job market suck and being a college grad is just expected now a days. So for you economic types, high supply plus low demand equals... I will more than likely not be making "bank" right out of college. So being the thinking ahead type I have made the resolution to be more price tag savvy.

Finally coming to the point of this post... Outlets. I love them. I am obsessed with them. What an awesome idea. The J.Crew outlet is amazing. I am fortunate back home to have an outlet mall right down the road. However for y'all that don't have an outlet mall near by never fear there is something called the internet. J.Crew is having a great online sale right now an extra 40% off of final sale items along with Vineyard Vines. So I had some gift cards from Christmas and did a little surviving-the-first-week-of-classes-and-not-pulling-out-my-hair shopping.

J.Crew Bling Button Cardigan $14.99 normally $69.99

Shimmer Bling Button Cardigan $29.99 normally $74.00
Flotilla  Fleece 1/4 Zip $41.50 normally $115.00 
Now I realizes this is in men's where but I am okay with that. See before Christmas I went into the store and fell in love with this sweatshirt (just in navy).
Shep Shirt
However when I came back after Christmas I found out that VV sold out of the navy, in fact the sales person told me the Navy Shep Shirt was like the top selling item for them. So flash forward I am doing some sale shopping and I see the navy pullover not looking at the item title I just assume its the male version of the Shep Shirt. Wrong, it wasn't a sweatshirt it was a fleece and I have the ladies version in pink.  Lesson learned, pay attention to the item description.
