Frugal Fashionistas Unite!

This is an amazing time of year for frugal fashionistas as many weeks of winter lie ahead (well, winter has been subjective so far, if you consider there hasn’t even been need for a heavy coat this weekend…) and prices are being slashed left and right to make room for spring merchandise. I popped into J. McLaughin to check out their sale (you’ll find up to 75% off a nice selection of pieces) and while there, a watched a customer  spent less than $250 on more than $700 woth of merchandise! The best part is, a lot of J. McL offers timeless patterns  and lightweight but durable fabrics, rendering them wearable throughout the year. That means your CPW (cost per wear, fasionistas) will be off the charts! Though a decidedly winter look, you can channel your inner Rachel Zoe with their totally fauxbulous “fur” vest. Paired with strech pants, riding pants or a skinny jean, it’s a fun (but cruelty-free!) piece. Also loving the new arrival of printed Aken totes (seen in the above illustration)—a carry all that is a J. McL staple and is roomy enough for a laptop and just about everything else (tip: the shop will be happy to have it sent out and monogrammed for you for just an additional $20). The nylon fabric is long-lasting and the leather straps boast attractive, gold latch hardware (and feet, to help the bag stand and stay sturdy).

Check out this and more SUPER SALES at Rib & Rhein, Wish, Potter & Co., Chace n’LuLu, Karol Richardson, and more!
