summer savings: all on sale!

Don't get me wrong- I love autumn!  It is, hands down, my favorite season (minus the allergies).  Yet, I feel that in all of the excitement of the seasons changing, shoppers forget to check out the summer clearance/sale racks because we are so focused on building our wardrobes for the upcoming season.  Please don't be a victim of missed summer bargain opportunities!  There are many trends that will be rolling over from this past Spring/Summer into Spring/Summer '13.

Here are some of the items I have picked up in the past couple of weeks for some serious savings! Some were inspired by the neon/gray trend that I posted about earlier this week, last seen here.  Others were from my serious addiction to polka dots, and just some pretty shoes that I stumbled upon along the way of perusing my online go-to sites.

1. Polka Dot Button Up Blouse Originally $68, Purchased for $26.99 | 2. Polka Dot Blazer Originally $99.00, Purchased for $38.99 | 3. Rock and Republic Neon Blouse Originally $44.00, Purchased for $24.20 | 4. Heather Gray Ponte Blazer Originally $70.00, Purchased for $39.99 | 5. Neon + Gray Crossbody Purse Originally $85, Purchased for $58 | 6. Neon + Gray Lace T-Shirt Originally $38.00, Purchased for $19.99 | 7. Color Block Suede Flats Originally $70, Purchased for $35. Unfortunately, these are sold out! | 8. & 9. Strap Slingback Sandals in Black & Tan Originally $88.00, Purchased for $39.99 + an extra 30% off.

In other money savings news, J.crew is having a 25% off + free shipping on orders over $150 through this Sunday, September 30.  Click here, and use the promo code STYLE25 to take advantage!

Happy Shopping!

the odd couple: neon + gray

The neon trend is definitely nothing new- and after seeing Fashion Week's Spring shows, it also appears that the neon trend isn't going anywhere anytime soon.  What is interesting, and my newest personal obsession, is the unexpected combination of neon with gray. Much better than with the obvious pairing of black/white as the neutral base, in my opinion!
