This cute little She Said dolmen sleeve top was just $2.47 at JC Penny's, one of the 11 that I found during there 80% clearance sale last week. I am actually wearing the top backwards because I wanted to wear my INC lace bustier top that I found at Macy's for $4.99. The back of the top has a deep v cut so I just switched it around, paired the two with some jeans and my Report Cargo Boots. I wore this outfit out to dinner with some friends last night and no one but me of course, knew that the top was backwards. Got lots of compliments on the bustier.
Ladies if you have not yet hit the JC Penny's clearance rack you need to do so. While out shopping with my son this weekend I came across some really great deals at JC Penny's...nothing was over $30.00, plus I used my $10.00 off any purchase of $25.00 coupon and saved even more. I got 11 shirts priced at $2.97 each, 3 pair of pants priced at $4.97 each, 1 strapless jumpsuit for $6.99, a Jacket for $9.99 and a pair of shoes for $12.99, after all the discounts taken and coupon applied I spent a total of $54.00. As I was leaving the store I came across this cute little ruffle faux leather jacket for $39.99, so I thought why not, I pulled out another $10.00 coupon and got the jacket for $29.00.
I wore it out this weekend with the Allen B skinny jeans that I also got from JC Penny's the past weekend and received tons of compliments, as the jacket does not look or feel like faux leather. So go print you a couple of coupons and see what awesome deals you can find. The coupon expires this Saturday February 27.
I'm becoming a Pro at this ebay thing...I am so happy right now, I found my Report Cargo boots on ebay. The starting bid was .99 cents. I waited til the last minute to bid literally 9 seconds before the auction ended and yep that's right I WON. Got my boots for $45.97. These bad boys retail for $195, I saw them marked down to 128.99 last week, not wanting to wait to see what other reductions would be taken I started my search for them on ebay. I know for a fact I could not have gotten these in the department store for $45 bucks...I will be wearing these AS SOON as I get them.
So its cold today in Texas which gives me the perfect excuse to sport my new boots by Nine West. They are not as fancy as the Tory Burch boot, but this will suit my appetite just fine for now. This is my outfit I am wearing today to one of two Super Bowl Parties we are attending.

Ok so I have been searching for a pair of boots similar to the Tory Burch Jaden Boot since September of last year. The Jaden boot by Tory Burch carried a hefty price tag of $550.00 when I saw them at Nordstrom's back in early fall...It kills me just thinking about it, I would NEVER pay that much for a pair of boots.

Yesterday I found this cute Nine West "Mako" boot which is pretty similar to the Tory Burch Boot. The boots were originally $158.00 they were marked down to $59.99 and then take 50% off the marked price, so I got them for just under $30.00 dollars. I know I should be looking ahead towards getting my spring wardrobe collections, but in Texas it is still could and the winter markdowns on boots and other items simply cannot be passed up. I know at some point I will need to say enough is enough...No more boots!

I have my eye on one more pair of boots, and once I get them then I may be finished boot shopping.
They are the Report Cargo Boots. They are still over what I am willing to pay, but according to the sales lady at the department store there is another markdown coming next week, keeping my fingers crossed that they will have my size and fit my pocketbook.
Just browsing ebay today not really looking for anything in particular I came across this cute shoe boot by Naughty Monkey. I could not resist so I did it...I bid on the shoe in the last 10 seconds of the auction ending and I won...I got them for $31.00.
I also found a cute faux leather jacket for $19.00 that I hope will look good with the boots and I was thinking a pair of skinny jeans to complete the look. I know the shoes I will definitely like, just keeping my fingers crossed on the jacket!!!
I am a 4o year old young woman who loves to shop, but always looks for the clearance and markdown racks FIRST. I just want to share with you a few tips and ideas on how a girl who is a shopaholic, living with less wears the best.
