Major upside of being in Europe during the summer are the summer sales…and being that my home is in Miami Beach, I happily buy all the “close-out” summer items at rock bottom prices. I mean, it’s always kind of summer in Miami and if you’re clever enough you can incorporate summer trends into fall/winter quite easily.
Anyway, I literally felt like I robbed some of these stores because the prices were so crazy low but hey…if it’s there, right? In all honesty, I bought way more than one post can allow but I thought I’d show you my 3 favorite items..all from different stores and all under $40.00.
First up I have an adorable purse in black with gold accents from H&M. I couldn’t believe it when I saw because up close it looks much more expensive than even the original price of $24.90…so to see it marked down to $15.00 was a major score. I will use this bag a lot…perfect for nights out. I think it would look adorable with everything from skinny jeans to a little cocktail dress. This was definitely one of the most versatile pieces I saw at the sales.
Next up is a pair of navy blue patent heels that I fought a lady for at Zara. She was looking at them (and I was looking at her looking at them) then she put them down…so I ran up and grabbed them. She suddenly turned around and tried to tell me that she was going to take them…but nope, if you put them down, all items are fair game. So that made this purchase even better…not only was the price a bargain but I had won a battle to get them. The price was $39.95 and I couldn’t be happier with the price, the fit and the style. They’re very comfy, high and look great with my summer dresses. I will definitely get a lot of use out of these while I’m here.
Lastly, I found this absolutely fantastic purse at a store called Tally Weijl. I supsect it’s a local chain as I am not familiar with it. It seems like a very young, hip store with very fair pricing…I would compare it to a Forever 21 type of store. Anyway, I wondered in and was perusing the sales when I saw this multi-colored bag. I LOVE it. It’s sooooo Miami, it’s so summer, it’s so fun. I think this is probably my favorite find so far. I can’t wait to use…especially when the weather is a little rainy, having a fun accessory like this can bring a lot of sunshine to your mood ;) And the price for this lovely?? A mere $10.00…amazing, right?
So those are my 3 favorite fashion finds under $40.00…tell me, what do you guys think of them and of course…share with me what amazing buys you guys have found during all these summer sales!!
Till next time...
