Weekend Bargains

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I always feel like my weekends are so jam packed with events, especially in the summer. On Saturday I spent a little quality time with the family and my Mom showed off her bargain shopping skills. First, I have to say I love hanging out with my mother, she’s hilarious and so much fun (example, in the middle of seeing the movie Inception she said to me, “I’m done with Leo DiCaprio – D.O.N.E.” Clearly, it was not her favorite movie). I told her I needed an alternative to wearing a suit since this heatwave is killing me and I’m just not in the mood to wear a long sleeve jacket but I want to still look polished for an event this week (and perhaps I’ll take pics and share here on the blog). So she took me to Ross to see if I could find a bargain. Not only did I find a Maggy London dress for $22, my Mom spotted this AWESOME bag that my sister bought.lucky brand heart patchwork bag
I am a fan of Lucky Brand patchwork bags. My sister HAW and I have very similar ones that we’ve owned for years. They’re just something so boho and fun about their patchwork and yet really modern. Well nothing gets as modern and absolutely adorable as the Lucky Brand Heart Patchwork Leather Hobo my sister ABW bought.

No seriously, how cute is this bag?

ABW was already in line about to buy 2 bags when my Mom spotted this bag. I said, “I think that’s a Lucky Bag, I can tell by the patchwork,” and I was totally right. The best part was the price tag was HALF of what it retails for on the link above. The original price was $190, the current price on Zappos is $150, the price ABW paid was $75. THAT is bargain shopping at it’s best and I definitely think my mother was happy to have helped us discover a few bargains. I almost raided the entire housewares section, so many Kitchenaid mixing bowls, wisks and the cutest pots and pans I’ve seen in a long time.

I love bargain shopping. Anybody find any great buys this weekend? I saw lots of tweets about the Nordstrom’s half yearly sale! Share!

  1. Well, I got my one bargain while thrifting: $6 Diane Von Furstenberg (mint condition) at Goodwill. I’m picky when it comes to shopping and most of my items are under $50. I recently purchased L.A.M.B. shoes for $35 at Nordstrom Rack, and recently paid $8 for Nine West shoes from Ross. I have a love/hate relationship with Ross. You have to find that perfect time to go (Thurs-Sun and especially after 12pm) are not good times to go. I’ve found that Tuesdays right after they open is a pristine time. However, once I start up my teaching schedule my mid-day shopping will come to a standstill.

    • @Chandra all hail the queen of bargain shopping! LOL A $5 DVF dress?! That is the best bargain of the year. I always find good stuff at Nordstrom Rack but the one that is closest to me is like 45 minutes away. My Dad goes there all the time and loves finding a bargain, I guess bargain shopping is in my genes🙂

  2. Wow! I’ve never seen that bag! And what a deal! Where do you like to do your bargain shopping?

    I’ve been meaning to drag my butt up to the Nordstrom Rack.

    • @Alissa I love Nordstrom Rack but the one closest to me isn’t that close so I don’t get to go as often. I’m also a huge Marshall’s/TJ Maxx kind of girl. There are 2 brand new ones 10 miles from my house and there are bargains GALORE!

  4. That bag is adorable and kudos for the $22 Maggy London dress, too! Bargain weekends are the best. I got a very cute pair of Nine West sandals that were marked down from $80 (I believe?) to $22 after my mom dragged me into Carson’s on Friday. I usually loath going into that store, but she had to return something and I saw these shoes. Of course, now she thinks I should LOVE the store!🙂
