Go ahead, spoil yourself... Guilt free.
It’s no secret that I love shopping. But one thing I love more than ‘just shopping’, is shopping for deals! Whether it’s at a vintage boutique or a discount store, there’s something about the thrill of getting your hand on an amazing deal. It’s like finding a treasure… Something no one or very few people will also find.
Which is why I was really excited when I found out that Marshalls was opening a new location, just a few blocks from my home! On opening day, at 8:30am, I was there coffee in hand and ready to hunt!
No less than 5 minutes inside the store and my cart was longer empty. The second I walked in, vintage designer bags greeted me on my left and high end flats waved me hello on my right. Paradise!
Obviously most of my time was spent in the accessories section! If you follow my Instagram, you know I have a slight obsession with shoes. I fell in love with the cutest black and white 'Drew Nano' bag; it took me everything to not buy it (how in the world would I ever be able to justify another designer bag to my husband! lol). If Italian designers are what you’re into, you wouldn’t have been disappointed! Just in the ‘Tapis Rouge’ display, I counted over four monogramed 'it' bags, as seen on the arms of countless fashion bloggers.
After filling my cart with handmade ‘Chanel inspired’ shoes from Spain and designer sunnies, I decided to leave the accessories department (aka my personal black hole) and ventured to the active wear section. Since I work from home most of the time, I absolutely love wearing leggings but I can’t bare myself to spend hundreds of dollars on them. I just can’t. I’d much rather invest in… a designer bag, if you know what I mean! Marshalls always has an amazing selection of workout clothes and this time, I found a pair of black leggings branded with 3 famous stripes for under $25. Score!
All in all, considering the abundance of amazing deals and high end treasures available, I gotta say, I did well! I was able to spoil myself without breaking the bank!
