That Time I Scored the Mother of All Deals

February 6, 2013

Contrary to what some of you might think by looking at my Instagram, I really don’t go shopping for clothing very often. Like I’ve mentioned before, I don’t like spending tons of money on clothes but seem to have pretty expensive tastes when it comes to my favorite stores.

Let’s rewind to last Friday. Meg tweeted about wanting to do happy hour, so I took her up on it! I arrived a few minutes before she did and decided to duck into the J. Crew right near where we were meeting. (Have I mentioned that I’m the mayor of that location on Foursquare? I swear I don’t go that often!)

I decided to just browse around and see what I could find. All of the fall pieces were adorable as always, and just as expensive as they are known to be. I finally make my way back to the sale section and what to my little eyes did appear but… 50% off all sale items. HECK. YES. I started scooping up one of everything. I’m pretty sure the associate that was helping me thought I was a little cray cray.

By the end of it, I scooped up a pair of pink “camping socks” (I’ll just wear them cause they’re comfy… I’m not going camping…) and a pair of purple striped socks. I also grabbed these two pairs of pants:

Green Matchstick pants
(shirt & scarf from F21)

Cafe Capri in Guava
They both are in serious need of some hemming, but I just couldn’t resist when I saw the price tag. I got each pair of pants for less than $13 each. They were originally $128 each. Um… WHAT. Brand new J. Crew? $35 for two pairs of pants PLUS two pairs of socks? I’ll take it!

I realized that I also scored this awesome deal back in November but never blogged about it! (Or maybe I did. Either way, people are askin’.)

I had been drooling over the monogrammed necklaces for quite some time but just couldn’t bring myself to spend $100 on a casual necklace. Well, my friends, these necklaces were only $7 each! A little birdy told me that JC Penny has them on sale now for $3. I’ve had so many people mistake them for the monogrammed ones, even in person! I wore it to the January blogger meetup and got so many compliments on it.

Have you scored any majorly awesome deals recently?
