After the winter/summer season I always try to get out to my favorite stores and do a little shopping. There are always a few key pieces I look for and never pass up a really good deal for some fresh wardrobe updates. Yesterday I stopped at Ann Taylor, Loft, & Banana Republic and found some serious steals. I spent a total of $121, bought 7 pieces and saved a total of $396 off the original prices!! The deets are as follows: Ann Taylor merino cardigan: Original price-$78, I got it for 91% off Ann Taylor Jacquard mini-skirt: Original price-98.00, was 86% off. Winter white skirt: Original prics was $128, I saved 84% on this skirt. They didn’t have my size in the regular section but I found one in the petite and just bumped the size up 1 and it fit perfectly! I actually liked it better because petite skirts obviously run a shorter length so it made it a perfect length for summer. Banana Republic color-block cardigan: Original prices was $59.50, I saved 68%. Banana Republic silk button cardigan: Original prices was $59.50, I saved 66%. I know it seems a little odd to buy two cardigans in the same color but they are a little different style and I wear sweaters over a lot of outfits and knew I would get a ton of use out of both. Banana ruffle T: Original price was $45.00, I originally would have saved 60%, but I found a small black mark under the armpit that looked like it could be washed out, so I took the risk, let the cashier know, and she gave me an extra 20% off, can’t beat that!Loft pleated front short sleeve top: Original price was $49.50, I saved 55%! This shirt was very wide when I tried it on, but then I paired it with a skinny belt and it really put the look together! I highly recommend checking out the sales after each season, you never know what kind of serious deals you might find. These stores are my go-to places for collecting my key pieces, because of the high quality, I am usually willing to invest more on these. Although this time I didn’t need to!
