Rag & Bone Sunglasses

Last week’s post was all about Surviving The Fall Blues. In that post I briefly touched on budget retail therapy. I don’t know about you, but I get in major jeopardy of over spending when feeling a little down.

We’ll all need to buy at least 1 item for the Fall/Winter season. So I’ve linked several sales and wallet friendly sites promoting Fall vibrance for Less. Thank me later ; )

Bodysuit: Forever21 / Skirt: Kosmios / Sandals: Target / Bag: Chanel / Sunglasses: Rag & Bone / Lips: MAC Ruby Woo / Bracelet: JCrew

Nasty Gal: If you’re following me on Instagram, you saw all the quality pieces I recently scored for $150! They’re giving 50% off on all times. Yes… I said ALL. I nearly found all of my Fall Wardrobe basics and even a gorgeous shimmery skirt.

Kosmios: This online boutique is bursting with designs that look and feel a lot more than their price tag. They all have an edgy yet feminine spin on a classic look. It’s where I grabbed this maxi skirt for under $70 I’ve worn it twice so far and have received countless compliments
Target: It’s an obvious pick but could not be left off the list. Their flats in vibrant colors and prints are really catching my attention.

Zara: I was at an upscale charity event a few weeks ago. Two separate women were wearing different but equally chic dresses. I couldn’t help but compliment them. Had they not told me I’d never have guessed that both outfits were from Zara. They looked like something fresh from Neiman’s or Barneys.

Target: Sure it’s an obvious no-brainer but there’s no way I could make this list without good ol’ “Tar-Jay”

Shein: In all honestly, I have worked with them many times in the past. You can find proof here, here and other posts as well. However, I am NOT paid to advertise for today. Nor is this a sponsored post. I just simply love their clothes and price points.
Disclaimer: Be sure to read full item descriptions and size up as needed. Some pieces can run really small.

Chic Wish: I have purchased several pieces from this online shop over the years. Most of them are now classics that I still reach for in a fashion “crisis”. This dress and crochet top are amongst my favorites. BOTH are still available here and here.

Asos: This is one of my all time favorite online boutiques. I still get fashion goose bumps when I slip on this regal worthy purple dress. Asos is the perfect online spot to grab a nice dress for weddings and holiday parties. Get all kinds of fancy for typically under $100. Or, cozy up with a casual sweater. From socks to ball gowns, they’ll have you covered.

Nordstrom: … and not just during their annual sale. Nordstrom is known for their low and high price points. I love to type some of my favorite budget friendly lines they carry in the site’s search engine. TopShop, Lieth and BP are some of my favorite searches.

Last Call: While we’re on the subject of Neiman’s, let’s give them a chance to redeem themselves. It is by far my favorite Outlet store to shop in person. It’s so well merchandised. I love that you can also shop them online. I love browsing for just about everything. I also always score great quality tees and tanks that feel luxe to the touch. Their boasting a 30% – 50% sale as we speak.

Rent the Runway: RTR Memberships are the perfect way to be perpetually stylish for as little as $89 a month. With the RTR Unlimited membership, you can rent 4 items at a time as many items as you’d like. They’re able to be rotated out as you wish. Regularly $159 per month and only $99 for your first. With the RTR Update plan you rent only 4 total per month with the option to rotate one time. The cost for this plan is $89 per month, paying only $69 for your first.

The Rack: This is where I get most of my designer jeans. I just can’t stomach spending over $150 for a casual item of clothing. They carry designers like 7 for all Mankind, Citizen and Joe’s Jeans. Like Last Call they’re also an outlet shop that can be shopped online.

Buffalo Exchange: It’s impossible to type a post like this without mentioning Tha Buffalo. It’s also one of the first spots I hit when shopping. They’re great for gently pre owned designer or vintage pieces at a steal. Also, they’re buy your unwanted closet goodies on the spot. I plan to visit soon for retro Rock n Roll tees. One small downside is that they’re only available in major cities and can not be shopped online. However, chances are you’ll find one near you on their Locations page.

Express: They’re always running the most unbelievable sales. I’m STILL kicking myself for missing the most recent one. Can’t let this happen again, so I’ve signed up for email alerts. You should too.

Have I left off any of your faves? PLEASE let us all know in the comments section.
