Bargain Hunting!

Recently, I’ve been really into bargain shopping lol. My friend introduced me to a whole new world that I didn’t know about before. I used to wait for the biannual sales, stock up items in my shopping cart way ahead of time, calculate Eastern/Central/Pacific time zones, set my alarm to crazy hours like 3AM, and as soon as the online sales started, I’d check out all my stuff!!! Yeah, you know you’re a serious shopper when you wake up that early for the sales! haha Anyhow, I discovered that there were outlet shops like Nordstrom Rack, Last Call, Off 5th, TJ Maxx… etc. just to name a few. I really enjoy the hunt for items and it makes me so happy to find something that I knew cost so much more! Here are a few goodies:

Red by Valentino: Glitter Swirl Flats – 65$ (Retail 350$)

These are super cute and comfy. I’m happy with it even though there’s no box or dustbag…

Helmut Lang: Gray Oxide Print Dress – 75$ (Retail 398$)

Often HL’s dresses don’t fit me right due to the asymmetric cut. I was glad this one fits me one and is very comfy. This is a medium size. HL’s sizing tends to be erratic… I can go from XS to occasionally a large…

David Yurman: Wheaton Ring 16X12mm in Prasiolite and 0.16CT Diamonds Set in Sterling Silver – 375$ (Retail 875$)

I know… this is like better than DY’s factory sales! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this in the counter at Last Call for a fraction of the retail price since this is a very classic style… Little did I know how much problems this later gave me…

Rag and Bone: Capri Jeans in Blush – 60$ (Retail 165$)

Really cute pants, great for spring and summer now. Since I’m petite, the Capri style fits me perfectly as jeggings.

Salvatore Ferragamo: SS12 Runway Heels – 289$ (Retail 800$)

I was so tempted to buy these gorgeous heels as seen on all the SS12 ad campaigns and worn by Gisele Bundchen! Not only was the price amazing at 65% off retail, I managed to find 3 pairs all in my size! In the end, I passed cuz I felt like the shoes really weren’t practical and I’m trying to re-focus my purchases on bags! I have enough shoes for now. Here’s a teaser pic:

  1. Hi! I love your style. I found your blog by doing a search on the Yurman Wheaton ring. You mentioned that it gave you some problems. May I ask what was wrong with it? Iā€™m interested in one myself. šŸ™‚

  2. Hi Delilah, sorry for the late response, but the problems I encountered had to do with the resizing of the ring. I had Neiman Marcus make it smaller, but that particular NM had contracted a 3rd party (not affiliated with David Yurman) who was unfamiliar with the ring and did a poor job. So I had to take it back again, ultimately I had to settle with the ring that appears rather imperfect to me on the back. Anyhow I don’t think it should deter you from purchasing yours, but please be careful of letting anyone else resize or repair the ring. I would recommend just wait for the boutique to order in the proper size, or simply bring it to an official DY boutique to have them do the job. Best of luck and happy shopping šŸ™‚
