Cheap Sunday

 I have recently had requests from blog followers to do outfit posts featuring the crazy sale deals that I find because if you didn't know,  I am quite the gifted discount shopper. Deals is my middle name! Yes, I am one of those crazy people who loves black friday. I make the lists, the maps, the time schedule of when stores open & when special early bird deals end & of course I have the coupons. I wear protective knee pads, elbow pads & a mouth guard in case punches are thrown. 
When I am in sale mode, I mean business!
*there may have been a few wee exaggerations in the post*

Jacket - H&M - $34.95
Shirt - Tj Maxx - $12.99
Jeans - Nordstrom - $9.97
Shoes - Jessica Simpson - $9.99
Purse - Juicy Couture - $20
Earrings - Forever 21 - $1.50
Nail Polish - China Glaze (Shocking Pink) - $2.33

Yes, that is right, you read it correctly... $9.97 for jeans at Nordstrom! That is definitely not what the tag said on them but when the cashier rang them up she started laughing hysterically because apparently they were deeply discounted for no apparent reason. I like to think of it as God's "feel better gift" to me! I got them right when I was in the midst of Holly's Health Debacle 2012. I was so tired of being home by myself so I figured one little trip to Nordstrom wouldn't hurt anyone & it would make me feel heaps better to get out!

Everything in this post I got on sale except for the H&M jacket, but I have been searching for a
trimmed black jacket for months, so when I saw it there was no turning back. The Juicy bag was a score at a second hand store in Oklahoma City & the nail polish was buy-one-get-one-free at Ulta plus I had a coupon, so it went form $8 to $2.33. The earrings are black hearts with the word love written in black cursive on them & they were my $1.50 find from Forever 21. Every time I wear them I get so many compliments, why is it that people always love your cheap stuff? That question is right up there with, why do you always lose or break your expensive sunglasses but your $4.99 one's can be ran over by a car & they still live!Oh the mysteries of life!
