The one good thing about this recession, is that the notion of being frugal is fashionable again.
That doesn’t mean however, that you have to give up your fashion forward preferences, you just have to shop smarter.
This past Saturday I stopped in to Marshall’s Shoe Mega Shop, to look for a pair of brown shoes and was really impressed by what I found.
I saw adorable booties, sky high heels and sensible, but fashionable flat boots. It was really difficult to stay focused on my brown flats mission.
Check out these plaid oxford pumps below. If you frequent this column, you know how much I love the oxford trend this season. Further, I believe that oxford style shoes will be a lasting trend into next year. There were plenty of oxford styles stomp’n it out down the runway at the Spring 2009 shows.
Wouldn’t these look great with a suit or trousers?
You Won’t Be Able to Leave With Just What’s on Your List!
Last Thursday I made a rash decision to buy two handbags at the Macy’s sale, that were cute, but not the brown purse that I really needed.
While I was at Marshalls on Saturday after shopping for shoes, I decided to see if they had a purse that would fit the bill.
To my delight, I found a beautiful Tignanello purse that I love!
I promptly took the other two bags back to Macy’s and discovered the same bag that I bought at Marshalls for $44.99 was on sale at Macy’s for over $60. (The regular price is $89.) What a deal!
My advice is to go to Marshalls first for the same fashion forward options that you would have at the mall for much less.
