It’s the end of the world!

OK, not really, but at least my world is going to feel like that. Why? Well I’ll tell you, because I know you’re wondering why! I have decided 2016 is the year of living frugally, for me anyways. Now before you start rolling your eyes and think “ugh, another resolution post”, nope this is not one of those. I have just come to the Carrie Bradshaw realization that everyone, including my son, are saving their pennies and have bank accounts to show for it and all I have is a closet office full of shoes and bags. Gorgeous, to-die-for shoes and bags, but that’s it. So, I’ve decided 2016 is the year I start to invest in my bank account. Lord have mercy, I don’t know if I can do it, but like Yoda says “Do or do not, there is no try.” And who am I to argue with a Jedi Master? So here goes everything…into my bank account!

window shopping at kate spade

During one of our daily online window shopping excursions that I do with my BTFF, I found this lovely confection, at where else? Kate Spade!

The best part? It was (and still is) on sale and I had a 15% off coupon plus Kate Spade offers free shipping! I ♥ her! So my grand total? Fifty-six dollars and change! I’m here to tell you it was worth it! I received this today and of course I had to try it on immediately and I love it! It’s so soft and the fit is perfect and I know exactly what I’m going to pair it with first. Stay tuned, I’ll post a pic of the complete outfit later.

The siren call of @lastcallnm…

Last Call by Neiman Marcus has been having a sale with select items an additional 30-65 percent off! I was then surprised to find that if you were in the store you received a coupon for an additional 40 percent off of one item on top of the 30-65 percent off! Love it! I found five pieces for the price of one! Stay tuned to see what I found…

When Patience is a Virtue

BB Dakota Calhoun Cape

I started lusting after this cape after @MerrittBeck tweeted about it back in December, but alas I did not have $169 to spend on a cape even if it was a top pick by Rachel Zoe herself! Well I finally found it on sale for…$30! Don’t ask me how I found it because I’ve slept since then, but I can tell you that it wasn’t from Twitter or Facebook because I participated in the #SOPA/#PIPA protest and stayed off of Twitter and FB. So far my order with Urban Outfitters has gone well, they’ve already shipped it and I just ordered it yesterday. We’ll see how long it takes to arrive and how I like it once it gets here. Stay tuned!
