F(5) – Great Deals and Steals this week!

My Five Fabulously Fashionable Finds on Friday brings fantastic deals this week!  It seems everyone is watching their pennies a little closer these days and I’m all about bargain shopping.  What I learned as a Personal Shopper is that no matter how big the budget…even if the sky is the limit…it is so much more rewarding to come home with great steals you will actually wear than the remorseful “I’m going to return it tomorrow” guilt!

For all of you ladies who think that skinny jeans are evil and should go back to the mid-1900’s where they belong and never return, you will be very happy with this news!  After a long and painful absence in many stores, flare jeans are back baby!  My most favorite place to purchase good quality, affordable denim is American Eagle.  And for those of you who prefer skinnies…they have those, too!  Remember, darker washes are most flattering and these Vintage Flare Jeans are a great option.  Pair these with a skinny belt (don’t let that word scare you) and a tucked-in flowy top and you’re good to go!  If you sign up for AE Rewards you can earn points toward discounts future purchases.

I am breaking one of my cardinal rules with this week’s outerwear selection for Spring but I love unique pieces and it fits the bill.  While this Ruffle Belted Trench is not water resistant, it certainly IS a pop of color and a GREAT deal from one of my favorite stores, The Limited.  What I love about red is that it is so versatile and goes with virtually any color pairing.  And hey, if you choose this option you can justify a splurge on a cute umbrella for those impending April showers!

I have been in love with flower rings for months now.  My good friend Chrissy, who I introduced you to last week does not currently feature them in her Etsy Shop.  She is however offering a sale right now on current merchandise to make room for her new line.  Enter the code “SPRING” at checkout until Saturday, March 26 and receive 15% off.  Now back to those adorable flower rings.  Craft Couture is endorsed by Chrissy and has this great flower ring on Zibbet.  It is perfect for Spring and a total guilt-free item to update any wardrobe!

One of my most favorite stores to go into is Ulta…I could spend hours in that place!  This week at Ulta there are some great promotions going on both in-store and online.  I love me some big hair so I love Paul Mitchell’s Super Clean Spray.  This week at Ulta you can get all Paul Mitchell hair products buy 2 get 1 free AND use this week’s coupon good through Saturday of $3.50 off any $10 purchase.  I am also in need of foundation this week and I love Pur Minerals.  Mineral foundation is where it’s at and it is really hard to find a good pressed powder option so it doesn’t blow all over your bathroom the second you open it.   This Pur-fectly Natural is it…trust me…your face will feel as soft as silk and coverage…you won’t ever want to go back to thick and caky liquid.  Don’t forget your coupon…click on it to print!

Okay, last but not least…shoes!  Open toes are upon us and these studded leather clogs are perfection…especially paired with those flare jeans…SO cute!  AND a great deal at DSW to boot…ugh so over boots!  Anyway…I will warn you, if you go into that store, you will probably walk out with more than 1 pair of shoes…unless you’re disciplined, which I am not.  So…again…I will be pulling from the archives this Spring and I know I’ve got some peep toe clog heels in there somewhere…finding them is another story.

So, there we have it!  Lots of great deals to be found this week.  Remember Ulta and Simply Created’s sales go through Saturday.  Next week my mission will be…flats and cropped jeans…can I get an “I can’t wait for Spring” amen!?  I always welcome and shopping or wardrobing questions so please, don’t hesitate to contact me!  Happy shopping everyone and remember while it’s fashionably fun to look beautiful on the outside, inner beauty that shines through is what lasts!  XOXO

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.  Proverbs 31:30
