Down with DVF

It’s Thursday so why not do a little throwback to one of my favorite deals!! Two times a year, Winners has their Final Clearance sale and there are always amazing deals to be found! I like to go a few times, because everyday they mark down the remaining items, until the last day when they do mark downs every HOUR. The next Final Clearance will be coming up in the next few days. These deals are from the sale this past summer (hence the throwback) but I figured it was a perfect time to share in lieu of the coming clearance. (Sorry about the pic, it was taken before I had my blog!)

My jaw hit the ground when I realized the cute zebra print tote I was eyeing was DVF! These kinds of savings seem impossible, but they aren’t if you know where to look. ♡ #tbt

TBT: My Long Lost Love

In honor of Throwback Thursday, I decided to post a past deal. One that made me, basically, wet high stop breathing! But first, a little background. I travel to Las Vegas a lot, and I shop as much as I party. I fell in LOVE with a black leather handbag at the Michael Kors outlet, back in March. I mean a “can’t eat, can’t breathe, reach for the stars, over the fence, world series” kinda love. The leather was so buttery, and the bag slouched in just the right way. Anyways, my love affair was soon just that, an affair. I reluctantly put the pristine bag back. Why? Even at $265 USD (marked down from $390 USD) it was still too much for my wallet to handle. Instead, I grabbed a (still adorable) fold over black handbag (also leather) for a more reasonable $160 USD (marked down from $390 USD as well). I was still elated with my purchase and, as far as the first bag was concerned, out of sight, out of mind.

Now flash forward four months, to July, when I was in Whitefish enjoying more shopping and some sun. I quickly ran into TJ Maxx to see if anything caught my eye. TJ Maxx always has tons of brands I love, including, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, and the occasional Coach. There, in the back of the clearance rack, was my long, lost love. Still as black and buttery as ever. Except this time the tag was RED and said $149 USD!!! Obviously, I scooped her up, never to leave my side (literally?), again!. And let me tell you, she was sooooo worth the wait!! Didn’t I already tell you that the secret lies in the clearance rack?!
