I'm not what I would consider a great shopper. I grudgingly go to the grocery store cause I have to feed the family. I really don't like malls. They can be too crowded and most of the stores are very overpriced. For most of my non grocery needs I tend to shop at Target (I HATE WALMART with a passion). For clothes though, I really prefer going to Kohl's. They usually have really cute clothes and their prices are not bad at all.
I recently went to get the kids a few things. We've got a cruise coming up and I had to get Nate some "dress" slacks and shirts. I only do this when he actually needs them cause I can guarantee he'll wear them once and before we have an occasion for him to wear them again, he'll outgrow them. Anyhow... I got some great buys for both him and Julianne (and a little something for Charlie as well!)
Next we were on to Payless for dress shoes for the boy ~ cause again, he'll wear them once or twice before he outgrows them. $30 for very acceptable dress shoes and since they had their BOGO sale going on he also got a pair of tennis shoes for $15.00. Of course I needed to be rewarded for all this hard sale shopping so when I spotted the cutest pair of slip ons with the smallest of heals marked down from $28. to $7. and remember BOGO so I got TWO pairs. One in black and one in off white for a total of $10.50 S-C-O-R-E!!!
Here's the outfit The matching purse and wallet are my designs. Shall we take a closer look?
I think they compliment the outfit nicely without being too matchy. I'm really loving clutch bags these days. When I'm dressed up and only want to carry my keys, phone, camera and a few other essentials, they are perfect.
So, while I'm not a super shopper, I think I got some pretty super bargains!
