Shopping Addiction

I wanted to share some of my current favorite stores to shop at {both online and in store}.  Sometimes I will splurge on something if I know they are investments such as my Hunter rain boots or a top from anthropologie or madewell that is well made and will last several years.  See my shopping tips here. But lately, I have noticed that I have been more of a bargain hunter.  It's actually kind of fun to try to get more for your money by paying attention to coupons, sales, etc.  Occasionally I will pick up an item, not look at the price tag, try it on and tell myself, its its under XX dollars, I give myself permission to get it.

My favorite store right now is.... 


They do have good sales and everything eventually goes on sale if you wait long enough and you dont wear a too mainstream size. There is also 15% off regular priced items {I forgot if it includes sale too} for teachers so I usually make Jake buy everything for me and I pay him back, of course. I love their prints, patterns and have you seen their new brights they debuted at NY fashion week? I die!

I LOVE the red paired with teal. 

Some of my other standbys are:


I have always loved anthro from the day I first stepped into the store in downtown Seattle.  They recently had "anthro day" {this past Saturday} where they offered 20% off all full priced styles. This has never happened before people. While I tried on several things, I ended up purchasing this beauty (on sale for $29 here):

Tart Citron Skirt from Anthro
I think I have a neon obsession.


I have noticed that my work and play clothes are starting to mesh. It just kind of happened by accident. Instead of having two separate wardrobes, I can have one even bigger one! I like! The Loft, previously known as Ann Taylor Loft has more casual pieces that Ann Taylor, but I do shop at both. I tried on this dress this weekend and almost bought it but the fit wasn't quite right. I love the pink zipper detail on the back. The Loft also had 40% off everything in the store {including sale} on Saturday.
