Deals and Steals
Since I am now among the employed, I decided it was time to shop for some work clothes. My office is very casual, so I have free reign to sport my favorite styles (straight jeans, blazers, heels and colorful silk tanks). Over the past few days I have managed to get the items pictured above for less than $20 each, and I felt the need to share my news with people who might appreciate that accomplishment more than my husband.
I admittedly have an obsession with silk tops and jeans, and, objectively speaking, probably don't need anymore. But I am rarely objective with my wardrobe, so I don't plan to start now. The tops (left to right) are from Anthropologie, Banana, and J.Crew. The Jeans too are from Banana, and were marked down to $18.98 from $89.50 (another example of why I vow not to buy another pair of Sevens, Citizens, or any other pair of jeans north of $200 ever again). Each top was originally priced between $59 and $109, and all were marked down with additional percentages off that resulted in a purchase price below the $20 mark. I know lunch salads that cost more than that (today I had a Luna Bar for lunch to prove my point). So my already bursting closet is now home to a few more pops of colorful silk that will pair under slim blazers and cashmere cardigans for now, and be worn solo once the temperature rises by spring. Happy deal shopping!
