Old Navy End of Season Clearance Starting at 47 Cents

Now is the perfect time to shop for clothes for you and your entire family especially for your kids. One of my favorite destinations to shop for clearance is Old Navy. When we say, clearance, their merchandise is truly marked down to like they almost give it away.

You just have to take your time and have patience when shopping for clearance. There are plenty to choose from and some of the mark down items are buried deep under the not so deal items. As temperatures get dropping down, stores are also getting rid of their previous merchandise so you really need to head on to your fave store and start shopping for next summer’s outfit.

As for my haul yesterday, I found quite a lot on women’s section to be cheap. Two of my favorite finds are the blue hound’s tooth dress for under $8 and a beautiful beige/faux snakeskin body bag which I love a lot. It was marked down half price off and so I grabbed it. If the bag was sold at less than $15 and it isn’t as beautiful as the one I’m wearing below, I would even bother spending my money on it. But man, when I laid eyes on it, thought this bag was gorgeous for half off price.

Other stuff I found was 47 cents women’s sleeveless shirts, 2 summer dresses for my 7 year old kid, one long sleeves and two other top for my mother which are under $2 each. I paid a little over $32 for everything plus a $10 Old Navy supercash good for next shopping trip.

I am happy with my haul and yes, would love to go back there again sometime soon.

Where Should You Buy a Fur?

When you buy a fur for yourself or someone you love, you want it to be perfect. A fur is a major investment on your part. Therefore, you need to be certain that it is money well spent. This means that you need to carefully select the furrier that you do business with. With so many furriers in this world, the choice of which one to buy your furs from is not a decision that should be made lightly. The quality and prices of furs vary greatly from one furrier to the next. Where should you buy a fur? Here are some valuable tips to help you make a decision.

1. Many years in the fur business

Choose a furrier that has been around for a long time. If a company has been selling furs for decades, this means that the quality of the furs they sell is exceptional enough to make people keep coming back again. It also means their prices are fair. ML Furs is just such a furrier. Opening their doors in 1951, the quality of their furs are second to none. Learn more about them by visiting https://www.mlfurs.com/.

2. A large inventory

You may want to buy a fur, but you may not have any idea what style you want. In cases like this, it is important that a furrier have a large inventory so that customers can keep browsing through different styles until they see something that piques their interest. Basically, you want to avoid having to go to many different fur retailers to find the exact fur you are looking for. The larger the inventory that a furrier has, the better the chance that you will be able to find something you like.

3. Pricing

A fur is not a cheap item. You should know that going in. That having been said, the prices on certain furs can differ dramatically depending on what store is selling them. Shopping around for the best deal is essential when you are making a purchase of this magnitude. You should always try to save yourself the maximum amount of money. Looking around online for the lowest price will not take you very long. The savings you get from doing this can be quite substantial. There are furriers that price their furs competitively, while others are extraordinarily high. Looking around will help you determine which ones fall into each of those categories.

Old Navy Skater Dress for Under $1

Money is tight these days yet I managed to shop some clothing for me and my girls. They are growing everyday so I am constantly on the lookout for nice yet good deal dresses, undies and other things for them. I am back to shopping at Old Navy store now after such a long time of dodging them because I believed the quality of their clothing materials had declined but with all the deals, sales and clearance prices going on at their store, I find myself going there again.

Last time I went there, I was able to find this super cute skater dress for $1.97 clearance price, large size in children’s department and it turned out to be just 97 cents when I checked out. It fits me good plus the sweet price tag. I did not hesitate to grab it along with a couple items in my hand that time. I bought two dresses actually, same skater dress style but different color and stripes.

I don’t normally find such a price like this but when I do, rest assured… I won’t be going home empty-handed. Believe it or not, I went home that day with 5 items in my hand for just a little over $27 total plus I earned supercash for next shopping of $25 or more. Yes, that’s how thrifty I am when it comes to scouring for clothing deals.

Love it!

Exquisite Reproduced Watches

Beautifully crafted men’s and women’s classic vintage watch reproductions look amazingly like the original antique watches of the 1920s through the 1950s with their air of sophistication and elegance and offering a “small work of art” in each timepiece.

Vintage luxury designs were originally extremely popular with trendsetters and Hollywood movie stars, and their outstanding fashion sense has never gone out of style.

Imagine owning an affordable reproduction of a piece of history that will glamorize the wrist in a spectacular and affordable alternative without a classic timepiece enthusiast having to spend a fortune for the original watches that are so difficult to find and thus are very expensive.

The smallest gorgeous craftsmanship and quality details of the collectible timepieces are replicated. A 23 karat gold plate alloy is formulated to match the color of the gold alloy that was used in the early to mid 1900s. In the gold-plated stainless steel or polished stainless steel cases, add exceptional dials and crystals, second-hand sub-dials, individually stamped numerals and markers, fancy lugs and more.

A major benefit is that each timepiece has the convenience of a modern day battery powered precision quartz movement, straps of genuine leather, and carries a two-year limited warranty.

Every timepiece is beautifully presented in a lacquered wood display case to create a perfect gift for a loved one for any type of special occasion.

Old Navy Active Clothing to Inspire Us

There is nothing fulfilling than being able to perform my goals each week, to workout 2-3x and do my walking exercise 2x per week. To do this, I should think that there is no excuse for me because I don’t go to work and there is nothing else to do during the week. On weekends, I try as much as possible to walk a mile.

In order to be inspired, I bought some active clothing while they are on sale. Getting the right outfit for my intended exercise makes me believe that I am actually exercising and will be more motivated to sweat. So far, I am doing good with it and sticking to my goal which I am loving so much.

I have bought a couple of sports bra over the course of months and probably will be buying more if I find one, a few pairs of active bottoms and also active tank tops. Here’s the latest buy I made at Old Navy. They were on sale but still I paid a little over $75 for everything in the picture.

I decided to buy active outfits for my girls too so they feel they need to be active too and would enjoy more the outdoors by riding their bikes or just playing in the playground. My firstborn is loving her outfits and worn the purple pair right away as soon as I told her I bought her something.

…I shall go back to Old Navy store in a couple days to buy the matching bottoms of my pink and blue tanks/bras. Hopefully the prices would come down by then so I can buy two or more pairs.

3 Tips for Buying a Tuxedo Shirt

Despite their name, tuxedo shirts don’t have to be worn with a tuxedo. They can also be paired with all kinds of formal and semi-formal outfits, making them a great investment for both the workplace and the country club.

But what if you’ve never purchased tuxedo shirts before? What if you need a buyer’s guide to the style? Here are just three tips for getting your money’s worth in tuxedo shirts.

1. Shop By Gender

A womens tuxedo shirt is different than a man’s tuxedo shirt. They have variations in the arms, chest and neck area. Whether you’re shopping for male or female formal wear, make sure you’re shopping in the right department.

2. Note the Collars

Spread collars fold over the sides of a tie. Wing collars allow the tie to be seen around the entire neck. If you’re buying a tuxedo shirt for work, they may have specific rules about which kind of collar is allowed.

3. Think About Color

While most tuxedo shirts are white, they can also come in every color of the rainbow. If you want to make a splash at your next big event, consider investing in a pink, yellow or light blue tuxedo shirt.

These are just three things to keep in mind while purchasing tuxedo shirts. Whether you’re buying them for work, recreation or a combination of the two, it’s important that you buy something made of the highest quality and construction. A poorly-made tuxedo shirt is practically an oxymoron!

Choosing the Right Bra for Your Outfit

Your bra choice is more than intimate wear. It supports you, conforms your shape and can harmony to the clothes you are wearing. With so many different types of bras available, however, from tee-shirt bras to multi-way bras, it can be difficult to choose just the right one to flatter your outfit.

The Cut of Your Clothing

The versatility of today’s bras make them a unique fashion statement. A black lace bra can compliment a sheer blouse, adding just a touch of frills to the v-neck edges. An open bodice, multi-way bra adds elegance and volume to a plunging neck line. Back straps also add to the fashionable wardrobe, with t-straps, low back cross straps and multi-strap designs. If you are wearing a low-back dress, choose a strap design that adds value to your clothing style and sets off the grace of your low-back ensemble.

Your sports bra looks great for recreational activities, with a large number of styles to choose from, from simple stretch bras you can accent with clothing layers, to halter-tops that can be worn alone or under a loose tee-shirt. Sports bras do well with lounge and casual wear, but do not always flatter your professional, formal or party outfits. If your outfit is sleeveless and consists of something more formal than a baggy shirt, wear a thin-strapped, fully supportive bra that will allow you to reveal your cleavage without revealing unsightly straps. Wear a strapless bra for strapless gowns. Choose colors that harmonize with your clothing.

Getting the Right Bra Size

No matter how sexy the ensemble looks, the wrong bra size can ruin your appearance. Your bra should fit comfortably, without sagging under the arms or in the cups. If you spill out over the top, your bra is too small. A poorly fitting bra can cause the skin to roll under the arms, ruining the cut of your outfit. Another indication of a poorly fitting bra is one that has straps that dig into the shoulders or slide down while in movement.

Measure your bra size before shopping. Your size may change from year to year as you lose or gain weight, bear children or simply grow older. Wear a tee-shirt when you shop so you can see how it will look under the thinnest clothing. Stoop and lift your entire breast into the cup, then straighten to check the fit. You should be able to fasten the bra comfortably on the second or third hook. A correctly fitting bra will do more than make you look good. It will increase your comfort and add to your confidence in your healthy appearance.

The Quality of Your Life Style

The bra you wear should match your life-style, which can be as variable as the types of bras offered. Your morning may begin with a jog around the block and end with evening cocktails at the local club. Wear the type of bra that looks stylish with your activities. Match their color and design to the outfit you are wearing. Wear low-cut bras with low-cut clothing and save your sexy, back-strapped bras for those special outfits that are just craving a little designer flair.

As an undergarment, your bra is part of your most personal attire and is the most important asset you have in wearing outfits that are stylish, fit well and add grace and form to your figure.

Buy 1 Get 2 Free Aeropostale Socks

I just know when I see pretty good deals, if I miss to buy that item in my first visit, I just couldn’t sleep until I buy one for me. One example are these Aeropostale ankle socks I bought last week. I didn’t buy them when I first saw them as I had other items in mind why I visited their store at the mall. When I went home that day, I couldn’t stop thinking about the socks.

Socks are a must-have for me in winter. Besides, I have a 7-year old girl that constantly needs socks for school. So I went back to the mall and made sure I got me 9 pairs of socks with nice prints in them. Aeropostale sale for socks was buy one get two free! Each pack contains three pairs for $10.50. I paid a little over $11 for 9 pairs of socks, yeah!

Each pair is just $1.30 after tax, a few cents more than what is individually sold at Walmart. Aero for me is the winner quality-wise. Walmart’s socks are stringy inside which could trap your little toes when you put them on in a hurry! Hurry to your nearest Aeropostale store and see if you can still score this awesome sock deal!

For the Love of the T-shirt

Since their inception, t-shirts have been uniting people and making statements. People love them, and it’s easy to see why. There are a few key reasons that help to explain why people love their t-shirts so much.

Form of Expression

T-shirts have been used to tell jokes, make political and social statements, communicate emotions and much more. As such, when a t-shirt’s expression really speaks to an individual it can cause a special bond.

Nostalgia

Whether it is the t-shirt they wore or received at their first concert, or the t-shirt they were wearing when they met their significant others, some t-shirts help to tell special stories for different individuals. Seeing that shirt brings back not only memories, but possibly feelings and experiences that are worth reliving.

Highlight Common Interests

T-shirts, particularly iconic ones, are embossed with symbols that can be recognized worldwide.

Such encounters can sometimes develop into great relationships, or at least enjoyable conversations in the moment.

There are various reasons why people love certain t-shirts. Some of the most common reasons are the way they allow individuals to express themselves, a sense of nostalgia that the t-shirt brings, or a common bond that iconic t-shirts can insight.
