Fashion Favor: Nine West Meshes boots
I discovered a low-heeled pointy toed boots to replace the 6 inch pair I gave away. They were too high. Yes...even for me. Once again the find was one that could had been missed. I was waiting for my mom to gather her loot and head to checkout. I looked down at a growing cluster of shoes/boots piled in one section on the floor. Hey,I didn't do it. I just felt sorry for the SA that had to deal with that mess. I spied with my lil eye one half of the pair that looked interesting. I felt like I was playing duel roles from the Cinderella fairytale. I now knew how the prince felt:searching for the other foot. PRESTO!!! Found it tucked under the try on bench. Now to switch roles: make like Cinderella and try em on. I can always rely on Nine West to make a really great boot. They fit like liquid leather and for $17.99 compared at $119...chic and cheap. That's the way I like it.

Fashion Favor Flashback: July 2008

Location: Premium Outlets,Orlando
Fashion Favor: Coach Python Turnlock bracelet
Soooo I stroll into the Coach Factory Outlet. They have a way of making me feel like Christmas comes early each time I visit. There I was surrounded by the usual glorious goodies found in any fashionista's stocking: wristelets ,scarves,keychains,bracelets. Ah,yeeesssss...the bracelets! Which leads me to the subject of my flashback. That day, I had decided I really didn't need...I wanted. There isn't anything actually wrong with wanting. I just didn't have that need pulling in my gut that generally prompts me to electric slide to the register. On my way out, I decided to give the boxes at the checkout counter an once over. Low and behold...exotic skin catches the corner of my eye: a bracelet wrapped in Python. Doesn't hurt to check the price, right? I mean, seriously, anything is better than the suggested retail price of $178. Just a peek...Is this reality?!? $29.99??? All I could think was help my eyeeesssss and hand over my credit card.

Juicy Gotcha Crazy

Destination: Shopping with my BFF Dee.

Location: Prime Outlets Orlando
Fashion Favor is in the air. I can feel it as I weave in and out my favorite stores. What's this? The Juicy Couture outlet is still having its 40% off sale. As I browse the racks for the second time in two weeks, I spy with my little eye a jaunty little terry dress. It's grey with yellow flowers and begging to be worn by Moi. Let's see, 40% off of $96.60...waitttttttt...what's this pink sticker?! BINGO! Pink is the new red because this little gem has been reduced to a measly $34.99!!! If you don't believe me, see the original price for yourself on sale at Bloomies - and the sales prices is still over DOUBLE what I paid.

Bloomies = $82.80

Fashion Favor = $34.99

Call a Spade a Spade

Location: Marshalls.

Fashion Favor:Kate Spade Elsa Sunglasses
Okay so baby needs outfit for church because his loopy mom (A.K.A. Me) left his fully packed overnight bag at home. I had located what I needed and I was on my way to the check outline, when it dawned on me that there were a pair of Kate Spade sunnies (Elsa) that I have been eyeing since they first made Marshall's their foster home. For about three months, the asking price was 39.99 which isn't bad. Since I had them under heavy surveillance, I knew they would start the typical clearance ritual...drop it by $3, maybe $4. Patience is a pearl,my dears. So I held out...like a feverish fashionista bidding on a pair of the highly sought after Christian Louboutin on Ebay. Finally...Fashion Favor strikes...$10. In one clean swoop, they were in the cart and coming home with momma.

P.S....I have also thrown in a picture and link to how much they are currently going for online.
