Found out that freeshipping.org has compiled a list of e-return policies that might be helpful for us bargain hunters this holiday season.Here’s the rundown….
You’ve got 60 days to return Ann Taylor purchases but, if you don’t have the receipt, only a store credit is issued. Gifts returned online will result in an e-gift certificate, [...]
One more wedding lookalike is up for grabs: the Duchess
gown, $698, from JS Collections at www.nordstrom.com.
And that Reiss Shola dress? Sold out…however, quite a few available at www.ebay.com for decidedly UN-bargain prices.
Announcing the latest contest winners: Janette Turner and her friend, Lisa Pratt, both of Seattle, WA. Congrats to these two great Bargain Hunters…who will receive a package of beauty goodies at the ultimate bargain price: free!
Found another sparkling platform pump to put a little Beyonce in your step: Mossimo Viviana pump is only $27 at www.target.com. And yes, I actually tried it on. And yes, it was reasonably comfortable. And no, I did not try to walk around the store in it.
I’m a little obsessed–as well as perplexed–by TLC’s show, Extreme Couponing. On the one hand, hats off to the gal who buys three carts of groceries for $9. On the other hand, what in God’s name is she going to do with 87 bags of croutons?
I, personally, have never [...]
May I just say that I’m dying over these wraparound sandals from Fredericks of Hollywood? (Yes, you read correctly, and let’s not get into a discussion about why I look at their website. The photo, above, should take care of that.) In my mind, this is the kind of footwear that could tango with a [...]
ANNOUNCING OUR CONTEST WINNER!
Congratulations goes out to Rachel Roebuck of Seattle, who’s getting a swanky package of beauty gifts in the mail this week. Her favorite bargain? Bypassing pricey salon brow-tinting services ($30-$40 a pop) and heading straight to the drugstore for a package of Just For Men Brush-In Color Gel–a dye [...]
Remember those Jennifer Aniston braided sandals I was dying over last summer? (Quick refresh: Stuart Weitzman “Alex” wedges; $375.) I’m thrilled to report that Lucky Brand just came out with a seriously impressive lookalike for just $69. It’s called the “Tabitha” and, holy hell, it’s comfortable. I know this, because I’m wearing one on my [...]
Okay, so here’s my motto:
Anything worth buying...is worth buying cheaper.
And that’s where this blog comes into the picture. I’ve been a national magazine writer and editor for more years than I care to admit. During that time, I’ve researched, written about, and played with the hottest, newest, trendiest things under the sun - from lipsticks to lampshades, denim to doorknobs (I'm not kidding... I actually had to write a story about vintage doorknobs). And while I know plenty of people who pay big bucks for the latest designer handbag, I actually get a bigger thrill out of finding really cool, obscure items for a song: a brilliant leather coat at Target, say, or a drugstore lipgloss straight from London.
So hang out with me here and we’ll go shopping together for the best beauty bargains, fashion finds, brilliant home décor and more.
