Over the past few months I’ve significantly cut back on shopping because I’m in the process of finding a home (stillll waiting for the right one to come along). While I slip every now and then, I’ve been able to avoid any major splurges. Until I entered the doors of Belk; I’ve got a serious love-hate relationship with that place. Even though I spent a little more than I planned, I walked out with almost $700 is savings, so that’s a win-win in my book!
Here are some of the amazing deals I scored, all for under $200!
This Tahari dress, originally $138, picked up for $27.60 (after getting an additional 20% off for opening a credit card which is also probably something I should not do while home searching!). Paired it with an adorable statement necklace from Wal-mart for just $5.
Found this Jessica Simpson dress, originally $128, for $25.60. Paired it with a birthday gift jewelry set from my parents and a pair of shoes I haven’t wore in years but had to because the color matched so perfectly.
This lace CeCe by Cynthia Steffe dress, which I saw at Nordstrom earlier in the season, was the best deal by far. Retailed at $148, I brought this gem home for just $14.80.
With football season right around the corner, it’s time to start stocking up on tailgating dress. Garnet and black hues dominate my wardrobe during the fall. Got this Kensie dress, retailed at $99, for just $9.59. Here it is at Nordstrom “on sale” for $39.
I’ve been looking for a kimono that was flattering to my body type for a while and found the perfect one in this Jessica Simpson style. At an MSRP rate of $69, I found this one for only $13.60 and matched it with a pair of Cynthia Rowley shorts for $11.60 (originally $59). I found the Michael Kors bag a few months ago at Ross for just $89 and this outfit is the perfect reason to finally break it in.
Saving the best for last, I am absolutely obsessed with this Jessica Simpson maxi. Originally priced at $148, I purchased the dress for just $29.60. The picture does not do it justice.
The sales clerk told me another major markdown is expected at the end of this month so while I’m be doing my best to keep my distance, I’d highly recommend stopping by if you have a Belk in your area!
