Fashion Forward

A little shopping over the weekend @ Maurices. I have to say it's quite possibly my new favorite store. Mostly bargains, but a little splurge. You're allowed at least one splurge while bargain shopping right? ;)



Coat: $39.99 (that was my splurge)
Skirt: $10.40
Sleeveless Top: $7.50
Shirt: $5.50

And of course, there was shoe shopping as well.



Grey Heels: $10.40
Brown Heels: $7.50

Total: $81.29 (and $39.99 of that was my splurge!)

You're looking at one satisfied shopper. Gotta love the red tag clearance events!

Love the black and white shoes! I just bought some open toe shoes like that on Saturday. Also, what the heck is Maurice's and why do we not have one? Is it like Marshalls?

Andrea said...

So freaking cute! And 39.99 was the SPLURGE! God I love that! I splurged this weeked and bought a baby shower dress. Unfortunately it was 140.00 eek!

pessimisticredhead said...

WOW. Well done, Michelle. And it looks like we might be similar sizes so, umm, if you feel like you have too many clothes? Send 'em to Boston.

Also, you've been tagged :)

Jess said...

That is a steal! All that stuff for well under $100! I'm impressed. I need to find this Maurices you speak of. I'm headed over to that website right now.

Also, the $40 for the coat was only a splurge in absolute dollars--because that's a good price for a coat. Go you!

elysa said...

Oh how fun I love everything you bought. And those prices are crazy.

We used to have a maurices here like 10 years ago but they closed it. I used to love that place though!
