Holiday Sales Season Begins (50% off or more)!

If you've been following my blog, you know I am truly a bargain hunter. Holiday sales have already started online and at brick-and-mortar stores. I am happy to share a few great sales that are happening right now.

LOFT - $35 and under event. Click here for a complete list of items that are $35.00 and under. Nothing to get too excited about. If you're looking for some basic pieces, it is worth checking out. I have these 2 items on hold for me to try on in store.

Talbot's - Buy 3 items and get 50% off (with code ADORN – shoes and accessories only). Thanks, Elle! I am not interested in their clothes but love their shoes. I ordered 3 pairs of shoes to try on today. If you spend $100 or more, you also get free shipping. Based on my experience, their shoes are very well-made. The ones that I previously ordered fit true to size. I really hope they’ll work out.

From top to bottom:
1. Corrine platform penny loafers (available in 5 colors)
2. Salena suede caged platform pump (still available in small sizes)
3. Sidra leather high-heel booties (still available in small sizes)

GAP take 60% any 2 items (for November 19 and in-store only). This offer is for Gap cardmembers only. If you are a Gap cardmember, you should have already received this flyer in the mail. I stopped by my local store today to try on a few items. I didn’t end up getting anything (or putting anything on hold). Here are a few fitting room pics if you’re interested:

1. Light-weight corduroy leggings: I am wearing a 24/00 in this picture. The rust color is beautiful. However, the material is thin and they didn't fit me very well. They are $23.00 after discount.
2. Ribbon-trim black tweed jacket: I am wearing an XS regular. It's way too boxy all around. It's on major sale in store for $20.00 after discount
3. This skirt is my favorite of the bunch (I couldn't find it online). The smallest size I could find in store was a 2 (hence, it looks enormous on me). It is a great fall/winter staple for those who is in the lookout for one.
4. Marbled cable knit vest: It was a tad big on me but might work under a thicker tee.

Happy Shopping!

Great sale roundup! Omigosh, you got those burnt orange platform penny loafers. I think they look so chic and rustic, but I don't know what color tights I'd have to wear them with. Can't wait to see these shoes on you.

@Anonymous Sorry, I should have mentioned that this offer is for cardmembers (and in-store) only. If you are a Gap cardmember, you should have received this flyer in the mail.

My Gap cord is one of my favorite pants nowadays and I reach for it every week. I bought both this rust color and the wine color, and found that the wine color is much less wrinkly than the rust color. did you try the wine color in store? The price is unbeatable.
After seeing you and Jean's post about Talbot's sale, I finally caved and placed an order. I have one thing in common in my basket - the penny loafer in the same color. I love that color. Let's hope it fits. :)
Have a great weekend, Sydney.

I just got that bib necklace Sydney, during the friends and family sale! At first I thought $36 was pricey for Loft, but I bought it anyway! It is absolutely gorgeous, I did see it sold out online! These are great selections!

Super cute picks. I have been obsessively checking the Talbots site for those Sidra booties. They're out of my size,total bummer!
