Birmingham Boutique Blowout

One of the things I strive for in fashion is to be unique.  I look for unique items that will compliment ubiquitous garments or accessories in fashion at the moment.  This weekend, the Birmingham Boutique Blowout is happening and I’m super excited!  The event will feature many up and coming boutiques and brands, all in a single location.

Calypso St. Barth 60% off Sale

Good friends share good sales with friends. So, let’s just go ahead and say it.  I’m a good friend.  🙂

The word on the street is that Calypso St. Barth is having an additional 60% off sale on all of their sale merchandise, so there are some major steals to take advantage of!  Be sure to peruse all the sections for things that might interest you, but if you are short on time, see my synopsis below.

That last item – the gold fringe back – is seriously rocking my world.  If it I still can’t stop thinking about it by the end of the day, I suspect that it will have to be mine.   Can’t wait to hear about all the fun things you scoop up during the sale!  By the way, be sure to call the sales associates at Calypso to order on your behalf if you can’t afford to pay for shipping.  They can order whatever item(s) for you and have them shipped to your house!  Call (205) 262-2996 to speak with any of the sales associates at the Calypso store at the Summit and let them know you read about ordering through them, here!

Happy Shopping and have a fantastic weekend!

Until next time.  Stay ‘Chic’!

$30 and Under Faves from the Neiman Marcus Sale

Have no fear of upscale designer stores, for they too have amazing clearance sales!!  Neiman Marcus is having an up to 50% off sale on many of their items, with free shipping AND free gift packaging!!  How amazing is that?!

By the way, have you noticed how much help I’ve provided for your holiday shopping thus far??  Seems like a little quid pro quo is appropriate, wouldn’t you say??  I accept gift cards to any store that carries clothing, shoes, and/or accessories.  Kthnx!  Just kidding.  Not really.  But I am really kidding.  Haha.  Okay!  Enough. 😛

Here are my picks from the sale.  All priced $25 and under.  Happy Shopping!
