So, the other day my husband came to me and said he had been given $100 bonus at work and that he wanted to give it to me (I know – he’s great, right?)! Of course, I wanted to get the most I could for that money. Before I even went shopping, I took a look at my closet and decided the items I needed most were dresses & more modern shoes.
I wanted to share with you what is possible when you take your time & shop the clearance racks – here are the things I bought with my $100…
|Banana Republic Silk Racerback Dress – retail $115, bought for $12
I love the lightweight feel & simple styling of this dress – I’ll add a leather belt at the waist for a bit of interest.
Nina Embler Peep Toe Booties – retail $80, bought for $19
These are sleek, flattering & a bit dressier than my other booties (seen here), giving me a more modern option than my classic black pumps.
Banana Republic Knotted Strap Dress – retail $150, bought for $35
SE Boutique Oscar Pump – retail $80, bought for $30
So, if you are better at math than me and you’ve been adding, you’ll notice that I didn’t even use all of my $100! I had just enough left over for a coffee at Starbucks. Talk about a perfect day – shopping success & a little caffeine! 🙂
