My Favorite Ka-chings

Last week, I went out looking for some post post Christmas sales.  I never really check out Holiday clearance deals until mid-January — well after the masses have shopped and gone.  I enjoy people, but am not a fan of crowds.  Plus I prefer the deeper discount that only patience can provide.

I decided to go to the mall, where I eagerly trolled the racks at the big anchor department stores.  Wow.  There’s always more left than you think there will be.  I settled in and got comfortable.  And, rounder after rounder, I was not disappointed.  Here’s a sampling:

This cute gray New Directions sweater (already worn not once, not twice, but thrice) was a sweet deal -- just $17, originally $46. Sweater -- New Directions, Top -- Eyeshadow, Skirt -- Venezia, Boots -- Route 66, Scarf -- Wet Seal, Tights -- Hue, Bracelets -- Taxco sterling bangles, vintage; Lucky Brand bangle

This trendy black vest, also by New Directions, was a steal at just $8, down from $44. Top -- Candy Rain Plus, Vest -- New Directions, Capris -- Calvin Klein, Shoes -- Aerosoles, Necklace -- Towle Christmas ornament worn as pendant on vintage silver chain, Bracelet -- Taxco sterling bangle, vintage

And I love, love, love this colorful One World top, a hella-bargain at $9, 80% off the original price tag of $50. Top -- One World, Skirt -- Larry Levine, Shoes -- Gianni Bini, Cuff -- Natasha, Ring -- Fossil, Earrings -- made by artist

    A new caaaaaaaaaardigan! I’m anxiously awaiting a shipment of four new cardigans I ordered last week. I’m with you on the waiting part. Avoiding crowds and holding out for the deeper discount is the way to go, unless there’s an item you absolutely must have.

    These looks are great , very trendy tops — and the prices can’t be beat. I’m hoping my daughter can learn from you since she doesn’t listen to me 🙂
