Sale Alert-Delia's is Going Out of Business

I just received an email that the iconic 90's teen store, Delia's, is closing.  Their going out of business sale is currently 40% off everything, including new arrivals.

Petite girls, this is a great opportunity to stock up on short length jeans.  Their inseams start at 26"! Their jeans are running about $25.99 right now and they are offering free shipping on orders over $75.

Also, if you like 90's fashion and are not familiar with Delia's place in 90's teen history, you should definitely Google search Delia's catalogs from the 90's for a fun look at 90's fashion, beauty, and pop culture.

RIP Delia's!

This look is based on what I wore recently to a beef and beer fundraiser for the family of a friend.  I had to go from work to the benefit dinner, so I stuck to a classic and low key-yet pretty-style.  

Here are a few of my actual pieces:

Watch from Ebay

Scarf from 89 Cents Direct

New In: Ebay Jewelry

Hi Everyone! Here are a few of my latest Ebay finds...

This map watch is really similar to one I was eyeing at Urban Outfitters for $34, but I found this great retro-style watch on Ebay for just $2.78!  That even includes shipping from China.

This crystal necklace is just so pretty and delicate!  It is slightly smaller than my other crystal necklace from ebay.  It was only $1.63 (for just the pendant without a necklace) and it always gets compliments.

These gold layered necklaces are similar to more expensive styles that I admired, but these were just 99 cents each-including shipping!

Whenever I see a new watch or jewelry trend that I like, I try to track a similar style down on Ebay. That way, I can own all the newest styles while spending next to nothing. 

So, what do you like to buy from Ebay?

Bargain Brag: Jeffrey Campbell Black Friday Score!

On Black Friday, I noticed that the Urban Outfitters near my job had 50% off of all clearance.  I decided to stop by to see if I could pick up any nice Christmas gifts.  I did find a few gifts (I'm not totally greedy!) but the best find was actually for me! 

I scored these adorable Jeffrey Campbell Ivar Velvet sandals for just $30

Even the box is cute! 

I've always admired Jeffrey Campbell shoes.  I feel their style really fits my aesthetic, but I've never owned a pair because their price range doesn't usually fit my budget. 

I was shocked when I saw these $125.00 shoes were marked down to $59.99 with an additional 50% off, making them only $30!!! 

I really needed a new pair of dressy shoes, and I loved that these could be worn either dressy or casual.  

The best thing about the shoes is that they are not just cute, but also soooo comfortable.  The inside is very cushioned and the straps fit perfectly. You could easily dance all night in these.   

When I came home I checked and found that the same style is currently selling for their full price of $125 online. OMG!  I'm so excited about this super score.  I'll definitely be rocking these adorable chunky sandals on New Years Eve! 

So, what great deals did you find this Black Friday?
