Below you will see my haul of good deals, many of which are probably still in stores. This week and I presume also this weekend, J. Crew is having an extra 40% off sale in store. (Plus an educator's discount if it applies to you.) J. Crew Factory is having an extra 50% off sale, plus there is a Gilt City coupon for 25% off on top of the 50% off. At these prices you can see why I went a little crazy!
J. Crew Factory Keating Blazer in Minty Green ($37.50) here
J. Crew Jeweled Bow Top ($33) here
J. Crew Factory Pencil Skirt in Stretch Cotton
J. Crew Sunburst Skirt in Ashen Clay here
J. Crew Cubist Pencil Skirt here
J. Crew Stacked Stone Bracelet ($25) here
I am particularly looking forward to wearing this piece with the blush color Sunburst skirt and also my mint blazer. The colors are perfect together!
Last off all, I stocked up on some basics. These sweaters on the left from the J. Crew Factory ranged from $9-$18. The Lobster Instaria Charely Sweater was one of my favorite finds. I almost paid close to retail for it last year and I am so glad I waited. I am going to Maine this summer so I can bedeck myself in head to toe lobster and nautical gear!
Old Navy also had some great deals. Most of their sweaters, including the two nautical themed ones featured above are marked down to $7.50. I don't need any more nautical themed items, but for this price it was full steam ahead. The California tee was marked down to $4.50.
While I didn't buy the above Kate Spade dresses found at Marshall's, I had to try them on because they were like Sirens beckoning me to come hither! I should have resisted their seductive yet deadly songs, but what mortal woman could resist a Kate Spade dress? At $129.99, regularly retailing for near $400 (which seems insane to me) I really, really wanted to take one of these (maybe all of these?) home with me, but alas I thought I should refrain. I might go back in a few weeks to see if they are on sale.
Below you will see me modeling two of the dresses. This is my first time doing the whole iPhone selfie in the dressing room mirror type of deal. I did it more for myself for future reference and also to show my husband what I looked like in the dresses in effort to get him to declare that I looked so great that they simply had to be mine. This however, didn't work. (Sigh*)
So, did you find any great deals this week? Do you plan on hitting the stores in search of bargains this weekend? Or like me, are you going to sit back and give your wallet a bit of a rest?
