Someone has to do the dirty work of checking out the sales.
Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I am going to say that when shopping this time of year, it’s important to have style goals. Without them, you’ll want to BUY EVERYTHING BECAUSE IT’S ALL AN EXTRA 50% OFF!!!!!!!!!!!
Take the Altar’d State sale at West Town Mall, for example. All of their sales stuff is exactly that, half off. But in order to avoid buying something just because it’s on sale, it’s good to have your goals in mind. So QUICK, mark down your goals then get and the car and get over to West Town Mall!!
Here are my picks from the sale… And remarkably only one thing went home with me. While I would have loved to take home everything I tried on, I wanted to stick to goal #2 on my list, so I only went home with the pants.
Simple black, knotted top in the front – ba-BAM in the back. I’m wearing a medium and this top was marked at $29 which makes it around fifteen bucks!
Game Day shirt – uh there’s kind of a big football game in a couple weeks, this would be perfect for that as it’s totally neutral in color. I’m wearing a medium but could have done a large. It’s $20.
Love this tunic, and it’s half off of $20. I’m wearing a small.
How about this gorgeous velvet black shirt! Normally I’m not into big sleeves but this one is so well done. This would be great to wear now, and later in the year for when Christmas parties kick back up. I’m wearing a large and after the extra discount it rings it at $15. That’s. A. Deal.
These pants are the piece that went home with me, for two reasons. One their velvet. And, you know, I could George Costanza myself with velvet right now; two it’s got an elastic waist. When you plan to have more children and you’re really into clothes, elastic waists are everything. I’m wearing mediums and these were $15.
Get in there and find these gems or others!
