5 Favorite Dead of Winter Clearance Sales

Linking with Hallie for Five Favorites!

Winter weather got you down? Not looking forward to anything until St. Patrick’s Day? Too many polar vortex issues to get you out of the house and into a store? Join me in my online shopping addiction, and never again buy full price (Fashion Morality 101). These are some of the brands I trust most to wash, wear, wash again, absorb baby puke, wash again, etc…

I’ve created outfits to Mom it Up in Style and On a Budget.

1) JCrew

They are taking an extra 40% of already marked down items. Here are a few that I love and may have already purchased.

Hat: 40% 19.99 (Original 48)

2) Bebe and Express

Both Bebe and Express are an extra 50% off! Before the temptation to quit reading my blog forever due to “slutty outfit recommendations” overpowers, search well and judge not, especially if, like me, you are petite and childlike, because Bebe, though often plastic or made with more cutouts than actual purple Cheetah¬†fabric¬†fits (me).

To ensure I actually wear my clothes more, I made a NY resolution to wear denim less and get more fun with pants. This week I’ve worn the same black cord motorcycle zipper pants three days in a row without a visit to the laundry, so the resolution should probably be reconsidered as it is much more gross and a lot less fashionable than I imagined.

My three favorite pants that aren’t jeans from Bebe. It’s these or kids sizes for the most part, because I’m 5ft and smaller than most 7th graders.¬†

4) Splits59

So no matter how many New Year Resolutions I make regarding less denim, Stylish active wear is a must, and as every mom knows, it tends to be what we live in most days. I’m Ok with that if it looks like this:

Pose FX Racerback Pullover - White/SilverNova Classic Capri Tight - ScarletDanica Liquid Cheetah Support TankDismount Viper Scoop NeckDismount Racer Scoop NeckGinger Racer 3/4 Length Tight w/ Lamé

Everything here is under $50 and can be found here. I have to be honest, however. No matter how fashionable, Lululemon fits my body better and washes better. But, with these prices and durability, I’d say its worth it.

5) BCBG and Saks Fifth Avenue

Relatively all of my high end merchandise is purchased at off season deals. Sometimes I wonder if women don’t even look at the really nice stuff in fear that they can’t afford it. Good deals are about timing and persistence. Treat yourself to beautiful fabrics that last and make you feel like a movie star. ¬†Here are some of my favorite fancy dresses that are affordable and relatively season-less.

Joelle Tiered Maxi Pleated Dress

Kat Lace Tiered Dress

Lena Draped Gown

Starr Deep V-Neck Silk Halter Dress

All of these dress are an additional 40% off of the redline. The most expensive gown pictured is $73. Originally, they were $300-400. Go here
