Super Steals

I am always impressed by those that search out deals and then really score on their purchases. I'm most impressed when the things they buy are necessities, but even when they are not (like most of mine, sigh), I love to hear about the bargains. With that being said, I have to share my "super steals" this month. I have to preface this by saying that it's not normal for me to buy 3 pairs of jeans in one month, but in my defense, I literally couldn't pass up the deals, and, I don't fit into any of my old jeans, so I really needed them. OK, really wanted them.

This adorable, oh how I love it, jacket was normally $124.00 and I snagged it for $29.00. These crystal "A" pocket Seven for All Mankind jeans retail for $235.00. I picked them up for a mere $54.00
These "Ginger" Seven for all Mankind jeans are pretty rare. The style (ultra flare) is not the most popular, but they look So. CUTE. on. And the waist is a little higher rise than normal. Retail price is $189.00. I couldn't pass them up for $44.00.
And lastly, these Citizens of Humanity jeans were a real find. I NEVER find Citizens at Nordstrom Rack (where I picked up all of these gems) but what's better is that they had been previously altered, and the length is PERFECT for me. That and these $156.00 jeans were marked down to $59.00.
So, I picked up a total of $704.00 worth of designer clothing for less than the price of the "A" pocket jeans. Now, if that $500.00 would only show up, I'd really be happy.

Kristin said...

Wow. I am really old. And way out of it. I have never even HEARD of those brands. So sad. Well, if Walmart doesn't carry it--Cedar doesn't know about it! Good for you, love having to get new clothes cause you're too skinny!

Cecily R said...

Yay for deals!! I bet you look FANTAB in those jeans!!

Are You Serious! said...

♥ I'm with you! Love a good deal and love to hear about the deals other's get!

I'm sad to say I've never heard of those brands either. I guess that's what comes from living in small towns... :)

Jaime said...

Awesome! I don't know of anybody that loves a bargain more than I do! It's so much more rewarding to say what the retail price is verses the sale price.

Awesome deals and great purchases! I never go to Nordstrom Rack but i should. My sister used to shop at Last Chance which is the stop after Nordstrom Rack. She would get the most incredible deals. Too bad it is only in Phoenix. We are going to hit it up when we go out there in a couple of weeks.

Those are some serious steals. I need you to look for me. I was at the rack last night and almost caved and bought a pair of Seven's that were the A pocket. One size down fit :) I still resisted. Mine were $99 though.

I wish I could find deals like that. I would be all over it!

I sure wish you could find the money.

Oh and my favorite ones you pictured are the A-pocket with the crystals.

I was thinking...where in the heck does she shop with regular prices so high? But I guess that explains it if it was the Rack. I love getting a good bargain too, I'm too cheap to pay full price :)

Melissa said...

Cute clothes, still didn't find the $500, huh? Well that just sucks!

Casey's trio said...

LOVE Nordstrom rack! And how fun that you just HAD to go shopping because your old jeans were too big:)
I really wish you'd find that $500 too.

Connie said...

Wow. Great deals...I always forget about the Rack, I hear it's great for kids clothes as well..

I love love love bargain hunting. If you ever go to NYC go to Century 21 (across from the ground zero site) and you can get HUGE deals. I have a closet full of designer stuff from there that I got for fractions of the full price... now if I could only lose this pregnancy weight so I could wear them.

I've just always assumed that I'd never want to afford a pair of Seven jeans, so I never looked. You've inspired me to find a pair for $50 - $60. If you can do it, I can do it!

girlytwins said...

LOVE that jacket. But now I have buyers guilt. I just recently bought two new pairs of jeans (Citizens) neither of which were on sale but that I had to have cuz they fit me so well :( When I was walking around the house that night before taking the tags off to make sure I was still in love with them DH commented on how nice they looked, so then my buyers remorse again faded till now. LOL. I wish we had a Rack near us. I used to go to the one in San Diego all the time when I lived there but I don't even know where one is near me now.

Congrats on all the steals :)

nice clothes!

Nancy said...

Great Deals! I love the jeans! I have also been on the shopping trail. A recent trip to Ann Taylor:
The amount paid was $180
The amount I saved with coupons was $240.

So I got $420 worth for only $180. Yeah!

Love the saving.

Kelly said...

I LOOOVE a good sale!

Clark Captions said...

Nice job Angie! And, way to spend some $$ on yourself! It is always fun to get something new for yourself! Enjoy!

Melissa said...

Wow I really need to go their more often. And I'm with Kristin. I've never heard of those brands. I hope you feel great in them.

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

We have a Rack near us...I think I'll check it out. I need a pair of nice jeans!

jenni anne said...

oh man, i miss the rack. i think one of the reasons i was so thin when we lived in sacramento was because i spent most my lunch breaks at nordstrom rack!

Rebecca said...
