Checkers and Cap Toe







Blouse: Frankly Basic | Sweater: Forever 21 | Jeans: Lee Jeans | Shoes: J.Crew (bought for only $35 from Her Majesty) | Bag: Urban Outfitters | Necklace: Target

Can I just point out once again that my J.Crew shoes were only $35?!  With the retail value being $248… this is the best steal I’ve gotten in a long long time — that’s like 85% off!!  I picked them up at a local designer consignment shop and I couldn’t be happier about this purchase.  They are practically new, are right on trend, and are in the colors of the year/season (emerald + mint)!  And I just happened to be wearing an outfit that day that worked perfectly with these shoes… so I was SOLD!  I can’t really explain the excitement that ran through my body as I purchased these shoes, but let’s just say I’m already back  on a mad hunt for another great deal like this.  Oh yea, and the weather has FINALLY decided to warm up (we had a snow scare yesterday) so we can finally say hello to Spring!

What’s the best deal you’ve ever gotten on something new?

    I’m going shopping with you! Those shoes (but that price!) are amazing! I’m pretty proud of scoring a pretty Ann Taylor skirt for $8, and the dress I just posted on my blog for $30 🙂

    Congrats on finding a fabulous deal on those dreamy shoes!!! I think my best deal (that I can remember) was also related to J.Crew. As an employee I get a discount, even on top of discounted sale items. A few months ago I scored a cute plaid dress for $20ish and the original price was $320. Crazy, right?!

    Great steal on the shoes! It almost feels wrong to not indulge with deals like that and these are very pretty. I love all the colors of this outfit. The plaid collar popping out is a great touch!

    OKay… so I totally cheated on my no shopping for a year initiative when I saw this Kate Spade dress on sale for 60% off. Then I got an extra 25% off from Saks friends and family. I couldn’t pass it up. OH THE GUILT… but the dress is SO PRETTY! *sigh* I’m too weak. ah well..

    I think some of my Guess? shoes which I’ve got was a really good deal. Like it range from $20-$30 during a sale. I think I bought like 6-7 pairs at one go =D
    I like your green heels. I’ve not seen many wearing a green pair of heels yet and you definitely pulled it off well.

    1st: your heels are fabulous – love the two tone. 2nd: those jeans fit you perfectly and you look great! And 3rd: I adore the color of your sweater – it’s so energetic! And your blouse underneath matches perfectly. Great styling job here!
