Pink embroidered off shoulder maxi dress

While every other fashion blogger out there is writing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I’m over here like, I can’t afford to shop at Nordstrom’s, so why should I promote that? Even their sale items are too expensive for me! I’m the one who goes shopping over at Nordstrom Rack – on the clearance racks at the rack, to boot! Or shopping at Marshall’s TJ Maxx, or Ross, cheap but new clothing. Or at any clearance rack in any store for that matter. The cheaper you can find things, the more you can buy, amirite? I’m a bargain shopper by nature. Even when I have money, I still like a good bargain. I may go check out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale at some point – or not – but in the meantime, here’s a cute pink embroidered off shoulder dress I picked up for a really good deal on Marshall’s clearance racks. Who says fashion has to be expensive?

Crushing on crushed velvet

I’m loving all the crushed velvet that came in this season. It was everywhere! Even booties and purses were made with crushed velvet. How cute were those?

So, when I saw this cold shoulder crushed velvet top on clearance at Kohl’s, I just had to have it. Armed with a $5 off any purchase coupon and  30% off when you use your credit card, I went to make my purchase. It rang up at only $1.54. Score!

I also found a few things on the clearance racks at Marshall’s, but somehow they all ended up being more than the shirt. Odd when you can find stuff cheaper at a regular department store’s clearance racks than at a discount store’s clearance racks, but somehow, that’s how the cookie crumbled this time around.

I love good deals and I cannot lie.

 

Crushed velvet top, gray jacket, purple floral skirt, red booties, bow tie purse + cat ear sunglasses

 

Outfit recap:

Gray jacket, Goodwill, given to me by a friend. Tassel earrings, Cost Plus World Market, a Christmas gift, you can shop these here. Cat ear sunglasses, Marshall’s, a birthday gift. White choker necklace, old, worn at my sister’s wedding years ago. Crushed velvet top, Kohl’s clearance racks, Floral skirt, old, vintage Jay Jacobs. Betsey Johnson bow purse, here + fishnet tights, here, from Marshall’s clearance racks. Red suede booties, Sole Society, won in an influencer contest a few years ago. (Back before Pinterest tried to chase influencer’s off their website and then installed a new smart feed where now only a small percent of your followers actually see the stuff you post. I’d probably never be able to win anything the way Pinterest works now. Super frustrating! Down with the algorithms, I say!)
