Outfit Of The Day for December 14, 2011. A Bargain Day.

December 14, 2011 • Fashion, Fashion Blog, Shopping

Recently I came a cross a bunch of great bargains at the Swirl By Daily Candy Warehouse Clearance Sale. I checked it out in a hurry on a Friday and noticed everything was an extra 50% off already deeply discounted prices. With some items still on my mind I checked it out again the following Saturday and they offered 60% off! I took some chances and ordered some items. I knew I had to act quickly because things were selling out before my eyes! They had dresses and sweaters for $20 or less and Dolce Vita boots were under $50! When ordering deep discounts, I knew I still needed to keep my wits about me! So I emailed Lauren immediately! I refrained from buying one in every color. I also opted for larger sizes. When it comes to no returns, you can always take something in, but you can’t change your height! For example, this python print silk dress by Maiya looked short, so I thought it would be best as a tunic. I lucked out and it worked, so I got a 100% silk tunic for under $20. The only time I feel lucky I wear a large shoe size is when it comes to sales! Most tall girls (who also wear my size) do not want to tower 5 inches taller, so these platform boots were still in stock in larger sizes. But not for long! I love the back zipper detail on these boots and they are surprisingly comfortable.
