pretty + cheap

pretty things


Saw these darling Rock & Republic jeans at Nordstrom Rack today for $109. They also had loads of Paige denim and a pair of really, really cute Fendi sunglasses, but I was a saint and kept my credit cards locked up.  Unemployment sucks.

great lengths

I keep forgetting to blog about these elbow-length cashmere gloves I found at Nordstrom Rack. Only 17 dollars on clearance! The extra length is great for when I stupidly decide to wear short sleeves in the dead of winter.

best dress

I may not be as easy on the eyes as this gorgeous JCrew model, but how can you not love this elegant wool dress? I’m pretty sure it retails for about 180 dollars, but I only paid only 60 after sales/discounts (happy dance! happy dance!) Hands down, one of my best bargain finds… ever. I don’t see the dress online anymore, but JCrew is offering 30 percent off of a variety of other final sale items. Between this dress and my white coat, I have had unbelievable luck at JCrew this winter. It’s definitely worth checking out.

P.S. My red patent belt is from Target and the peep toe pumps are from Nordstrom Rack. Both on sale, obvi.
