During 30 for 30, I made the mistake of going to the mall with my favourite shopping partner: my mom. Then, I made the even bigger mistake of checking out the clearance shoes at The Bay. Then, I made the biggest mistake of all: trying on a pair of Nine West flats that I absolutely adored. They fit like a glove. I was gutted that I couldn't buy them right then and there.
Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, just after the 30 for 30 ended. Once again, I found myself in The Bay with my mom. I sauntered over to the clearance shoe rack, fully expecting my beloved Nine West flats to be sold out...
But there they were! In all of their embellished, just-my-size perfection! One single pair in my size. It was meant to be, non?
My luck continued the other day at Winners. Ever since The Glamourai unveiled the bag she created for Coach, I have been lusting after a grey drawstring bag. Last week, I saw one I loved by Nine West in a magazine (I can't remember exactly which one, and I'm far too lazy to look it up), but it was nearly $100, and I'm really trying to stay on a strict budget.
To my surprise, I found the exact. same. bag. at Winners only days later... for less than half the price!
I was worried at first that I wouldn't be able to fit much in this bag. I'm tired of having to transfer loose cards and money from purse to purse because my bag is too small for my wallet. I had nothing to worry about, though. This baby holds loads. Let's play a little game of "what's in Julie's bag", shall we?
(Note: My usual mess of crumpled up receipts have been removed)
Not bad, right?
My third score came in the form of a free (yes, FREE!) necklace rack. Every once in a while, someone in my building will leave a box of random stuff in the laundry room with a "Free!" sign on it. This was one such item.
I'm thinking of calling her Cleo Jr...
Ever the ham, Maury decided he wanted to be involved in this photo shoot as well.
