Clearance sales, Butterfly tee & Star shorts #fashionfriday

I love shopping clearance racks because I hate paying full price for anything I buy. And even a sale price isn’t good enough for me. I want a bargain! I’m looking for a super good deal when I’m shopping.

A couple of weeks ago, I got one of those ten dollars off anything in the store  post cards from Khols. I love those things! It really is good off anything in the store – even the clearance racks. And, because I like a good deal, I went directly to the clearance racks. I’ve got to get the most bang from my bucks as possible.

I found several things I liked and hauled them all into the fitting rooms. One by one, I weeded all but three items out. The two that were the best deal were still under $10 total, but the third item was $16.20. Hmmm. I like deals even better than that, but I had the $10 off coupon, so I finally decided to get all three items. I ended up with a dress for $6, and butterfly tee for $2.80, and the shorts with $10 off with my savings postcard. If I had a Khols credit card, I could have saved an additional 10%-30% with a scratch off card they have at the registers. I usually just bring my mom along so I can have her use her discount for having a credit card if there is one, but, this was an impromptu trip when I realized my 10 off card was expiring soon, so I took off quickly and didn’t stop to drag her along for additional savings. Ha.

I still don’t have pictures of me in the dress, but I did go out and get photos in the butterfly tee and star shorts – while practicing doing my own photos for days when I don’t have help photographing items for product reviews. They have a nice back-to-school feel to them, so I thought I’d post them now for all of you who are going back to school or have kids about to go back to school or have already started back to school. I’ll try to get photos of the dress for another Fashion Friday. I’d put a link to them on Kohl’s on here, but I can’t even find them on the website any more, so I’d guess they are gone now, or you could scour your local Kohl’s clearance racks to find similar items.

Sexy Backless Dress – #fashionfriday

Today’s Fashion Friday pick is a sexy backless dress from Favolook on Amazon. This dress looks innocent enough until you put it on. But, dat back, tho! It is very low cut and you will definitely be too hot to handle in this little number. This dress has a smooth slippery feel to it that makes it feel like it will slide right off of you – but never fear! It will stay put. We took this one out to the Columbia River to take photos of it.

I also tried taking some photos of my own, but, even though I am a photographer, it is sometimes hard to get the lighting and focus right in a photo where you are using the self timer and not actually in the photo yet. Also, sometimes the framing can be off and you can be partially out of frame if you are trying to get it exactly the way you want it in the camera. Better to be zoomed out a bit and crop later when using the self-timer mode on your camera. I’m going to have to practice doing more photos of myself a bit more just to figure out how to get it all to look right for when I have to do photo shoots and don’t have a photographer behind the camera.  Usually I have a deadline for my product reviews on Amazon, so sometimes it works out that I have help for photos and sometimes it doesn’t.

*Although I did receive this dress at a discounted rate to review on Amazon, I was not asked to review it for my blog and all opinions expressed are entirely my own.
