Like every woman, I LOVE to shop! I have certain brands that I like of course, but to be honest, if it looks cute I like it no matter what the brand. I always seem to find really good deals I don't know how or why, but I do. My Mom didn't raise me to always shop the sales - I mean don't get me wrong, we were both always excited to find a deal, but we were not the type to run to the sale rack first thing upon entering a store. I have my nice, more expensive clothes, as well as pieces I have gotten for real bargains. I enjoy shopping at stores like TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Ross! I know I can always find cute, stylish pieces in there. I don't go there to shop necessarily because of the prices, but because I find cute things I like, and to me - that's all that matters! I love it when I find pieces that I have seen other places for a lot more money. When I find good deals, I feel a sense of satisfaction, almost like I have found a hidden treasure! (Silly I know . . .) but there is just something thrilling to me about finding a great dress, shoes, bag, whatever, at a steal of a price. Again, I don't go out looking for these deals, but I always seem to find them! I got to thinking about this while I was at work today, so thought I would snap a few pics with my phone (sorry about the crappy quality.)
Keep in mind that it doesn't cost a fortune to have fashionable clothes or accessories. It just may take a little patience to look and an eye to spot great pieces! Also, go through your closet or even your Mom's (like I did.) You never know what you may find and how you can use it to make an outfit. I did not include my necklace and ring you see - those are very nice pieces with 18k from the store I work for - and those pieces alone are more then the first outfit combo. But that's what is fun, mixing your nice pieces with your fabulous finds! Happy Shopping!!!
