Weekend Shopping Spree & Bangin' Bargains



  Monday, January 31, 2011 at 8:09 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,, 
Since last weekend was the last one in January I decided to be bad & blow the rest of my budget instead of being a good girl. Saturday I went to DSW and Marshalls with my Mom and sister. I must have had Tahari on the brain [you'll see why]. On Sunday I was supposed to go shopping with my friend, but that didn't happen so I did something else... You can click all the photos to see everything larger :D
Saturday: We stopped at Marhsalls first & I found this awesome leopard print Tahari sweater for only $20, normally $178!  It's a little big since its a large & I'm usually a S/M, but I figure I'll mostly wear it unbuttoned or belted.  AND I can wear it as a dress too, a short dress...but a dress ;)
They happened to have 2 so I picked up both & am selling the other on eBay, so if one of you lovely ladies would like it you can bid/buy it now HERE! :D Here's the deal: if there are no bids & you want to make an offer (at least $20 + $5 for US shipping/$15 international), I'll take it off eBay so you don't have to worry about bidding...the perks of being a follower ;) To make an offer email me at aclosetfashionista-blog[at]yahoo[dot]com.
*It starts at $29.99 so I at least make the $20 I spent after all the stupid fees, the buy it now price is $59.99 so I'll make $40 so its like getting the one I bought for myself free ;)


Then we went to DSW and there were lots of cute shoes on sale.  I found these Tahari 'Travis' Oxfords for $79.94 & they were 70% off so I paid $24. I'm guessing they are normally around $110 since that's what DSW says... I'm not sure if I want to keep them though...what do you all think?!

On Sunday I did some more damage. I was supposed to go shopping with a friend, but as usual the plans fell through. I get very annoyed when people don't plan things properly.  She texted me on Sunday morning to let me know that she couldn't go anymore... *rolls eyes* but that's better than on Sunday afternoon like I thought she would.  So I decided to treat myself to a Chanel nail polish...I got the Limited Edition Riva shade, it was $2 more than the normal ones at $27 but whatever...I also got free shipping and 2 free samples [Chanel N°5 Eau Premiere and Inimitable Mascara (Noir Obscur)], yay!!! This was a big splurge for me, it took me like 5 hours to press the checkout button...I'm so crazy.

So all in all i spent $71 this weekend. (I'm not counting the $20 on the second Tahari sweater since I should break even selling it or I'll return it, haha)

  38. I love your shopping stories and budget stories! You are a little crazy, but in a good way. ; )
    I was trying to buy this glittery gold Opi nail polish on Amazon today, but with international shipping it was going to be $20. Uh, no. And definitely not the day before the shopping ban starts! ; )

  58. I love the polish color - so pretty! And perfect for spring and summer!

    I think the shoes are cute, but whenever someone questions a purchase, my advice is to return it. If you were completely in love, you wouldn't ask for opinions.
