Throwback Thursday DIY

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe that next week it will be Labor Day, the unofficial end of Summer – where did August go? I don’t know about you but I don’t rush to put away my summer clothes and break out the Autumn gear.  I like to leisurely linger into Indian Summer by continuing to wear white jeans and sundresses.

Last year I did a few Labor Day DIY’s one of which was upcycling a Sundress into a Maxi Skirt, you can read that post HERE.  Today I am wearing that Maxi Skirt with a mustard-color blouse thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill) and Wedge Sandals from Target.

Have you seen that television commercial that shows several office workers “oohing” and “aahing” while looking at shoes on their computer screen? Well my co-worker and I had a similar reaction while checking out clothing at the online store Ultimate Outlet.

Ultimate Outlet is Spiegel’s online website that features clothing and accessories from Newport News and ShapeFX, a brand often worn by talk show hostess Wendy Williams.  The Ultimate Outlethas clothing, swimwear, lingerie, and accessories some priced as low as $5.00!

Many of the items are limited in their availability of sizes but I was able to find two Pencil Skirts for $8.00 each and after receiving a ‘first time shopper’ discount of $10.40, my total was only $5.60! #winning

The shipping of $6.94, was more than the total purchase price but I still got a bargain at $12.54.  I can’t wait to receive the skirts and then do an OOTD review post.  If you get a chance check them out and let me know what you think.

Totally Thrifted and Avon Accessories

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

Summer is is flying by so quickly can you believe tomorrow is the last day of July!

This outfit which I wore last Friday was totally thrifted from GW Boutique and was very comfortable for the weather.  Last week there were several temperature fluctuations that ended with a torrential rain storm on Sunday.  Motorist returning from the beach and shore were stranded on major highways for hours.  This week we are in store for beautiful, low humidity days perfect for anyone taking a late vacation to the beach.

OOTD – Black Friday

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay ~ Fri-Yay ~ Fri-Yay!!!

Wow where did the week go?  Are you planning something fun and exciting for the weekend?  I’m having my car serviced in the morning and then working on income taxes in the afternoon – Whoopie!!!  I will be stopping by The Java House Cafe to discuss promoting a community event happening next week so that will make my Saturday more fun and exciting.

Today the weather is gorgeous and according to Punxsutawney Phil Spring is only 3 weeks away, however, I am not ready to break out the pastels or put away the boots.  My casual Friday’s attire is still winter with jeans, a sweater, scarf, boots and silver jewelry accessories.

JC Penney Clearance Sales

Do you remember my previous post about the clearance sales at JC Penney?  Did you go?  If not, I suggest you go there as soon as you can.  Today I went back to return the $5 skirt and ended up getting 2 more, a Worthington black and white tweet and a pencil skirt; a patterned scoop neck top and a Comfort Revolution sports bra for a grand total of $12.00!

There are $3/$5/$10/$12 and $14 clearance racks in every department, men/women and children clothing, jewelry, accessories, shoes, purses, lingerie, housewares, etc.  If you need a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, get to the mall with a quickness  because you will definitely get more for your money!

These pics were taken when I stopped in last month.

Have fun shopping & saving!


Target's BOGO Sale

Hello Friends, I hope your week ended well and you are now home safe and sound.  After work I stopped at Tar’Jay to make a return and of course took a detour to the shoe department.  Winter is not yet over and the North East is being hit with a major snowstorm, however, retailers are busily stocking their shelves with Spring apparel.

Target is having a BUY 1 GET 1 50% OFF on their shoes and accessories and my tootsies were getting excited in anticipation of being free again.  The details on Mossimo shoes are getting much better, check out some of the latest styles currently on display.

There were still a few clearance items on the shelves including boots which will be needed for at least another month.  However, the Cap Toe heels and loafers were no longer available and most likely were shipped to Goodwill stores in the area.  Target, being a good Corporate Citizen donates a lot of their unsold merchandise directly to Goodwill where even better deals can be had.

Clearance Shoe Haul from Target

I have a LOVE-HATE relationship with Tar’jay – I love their clothing and shoes and of course their awesome clearance sales but I hate that I can’t resist leaving without making a major purchase.  I drive past Target on Route 202 everyday and have been patiently waiting for their Cap Toe shoes to go on sale.  They were the “must haves” for the holidays with many bloggers Instagraming pictures, but I refused to pay full price.  I wanted a pair in red so last night I finally decided to stop…OMG!!!

Shoe Haul Image Image

Unfortunately, I was unable to find a pair of red, Cap Toes in my size but I did get these jewel-toned, embellished and zebra print loafers for $7.48 pair!

I checked the accessories and found a tote in Cognac which is a very neutral color that works well with most outfits.

I also purchased two pencil skirts and 2 tops but if you are looking for colored skinny jeans they have a large assortment of colors and patterns most  priced below $20.00.

Don’t forget to bring in your own reusable bag for an additional 5 cents off per bag. Check your local Target for more amazing clearance deals – Happy Shopping!

Boscov’s and New York & Company Clearance Sales

I very rarely if ever pay full retail price for any article of clothing or accessory and I rarely if ever shop at the stores in the mall. However, yesterday was one of those rare occasions because I stopped at Best Buy which just happens to be next door to the Concord Mall. I love the various clothing lines at Boscov’s but you really have to take your time because of how they have them set up throughout the floor. It was late and I was heading out the door but a 75% off clearance sign grabbed my attention. I only spent a few minutes going through a few racks and purchased 3 items, totaling $32.74.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NY Collection Embellished top with bat wing sleeves ($48.00) on sale 5.99

Brown Premise Pencil skirt ($58.00) on sale $14.50

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Chaus knit top with faux leather shoulders ($49.00) on sale $12.25

No matter how hard I try, I can never seem to find anything at H&M, but at New York & Company it’s a different story. Not that I needed more jewelry, but when the sign reads 80% off, it’s too hard to resist! I purchased two statement necklaces one in red and another in blue for $4.59 each, original price was $22.94.
