Black Friday Find - $67 Savings

So, the title of this post is derived from a bedtime brainstorm that I had a few weeks ago as I was considering what to post about for the summer.  Initially, a year or so ago, when I was just considering blogging, my goal was to share some of the great deals that I get in stores such as Gap, Banana Republic, and wherever else that I shop at regularly but don't pay regular prices.   Since I'm still trying to find a good "fit" with this blogging thing, I haven't really found a comfortable way to do this regularly.  'Til now, maybe?

Enter stage left:  "Black Friday Find" (still working on a title)
I'm not one of those chicks who waits until Black Friday to venture out and get the best deals ever.
Uh-uh.  Black Fridays, for me, exist whenever possible.

Like two weeks ago.

Yeah, I know.  Obviously, two weeks ago, it wasn't Black Friday.  Heck, it wasn't even on a Friday, but I still got this great deal:

What: Beige Silk Marisa Trouser
Where: Loft
When: May, 2011
Original Price: 69.50
Final Price Paid: 2.44
(yes, you did read that correctly)
Total $ Saved: 67.06!

I mean, geez!  I still can't get over that!  I don't think I've ever paid two dollars for a pair of pants!
Ev. Er.

I live for deals like this, though.  I mean seriously, after I came across those pants, you better believe I scoured every nook and cranny of those sales racks looking for my next hit deal.  Serious adrenaline rush.

Anyway, I'm thinking that this may be the basis for my summer posts.  Would you wanna join in on the fun?

Is there one item that you've gotten a ridiculously insane deal on recently or in the past?


  1. That IS a great deal! Especially at Loft. I don't think you could get them cheaper if you thrifted those. Score!

    The clearance racks are the first place I go to when I walk into a store. I can't think of anything off the top of my head, but I am sure I have found some good deals. That's probably why I have so many clothes in my closet, lol

  2. What???? Girlfriend! And you didn't get me a pair? That is an uh-MAZ-ing deal!!

  4. WOW! Well, I scored pretty huge at an additional 50% off clearance sale at Old Navy a few weekends ago... currently sporting a stripey tank found for less than $2! Love it.

  5. I'd love to hear about your deals Kish!!....and how you got them especially if it's possible to get the same deals myself!!

  6. H/K: If you do think of any great deals that you've gotten, please feel free to share.
    Tiffany: Girl, I was so caught up in a sales-induced daze that I couldn't even think straight!
    Taylor: $2 for a tank is a great deal...I hope you snatched a few of them!
    Callandra: Yea! Okay, so I feel a little excited to keep doing this!

  7. What a steal you lucky thing. Wow

  8. Word!!!! I am impressed!! That is a serious serious serious steal!!! They shouldn't have just given it to you for free. Ha!

  9. That deal is just amazing!!! I also LOVE a good deal but I have to say I do not think I have ever paid just 2 dollars for a pair of pants!!

  10. OMG!!! I live for sales like that. Yes keep posting this so I can go get steals, I mean deals like this.

  11. I'm a thriftaholic and I can't even think of a time when I got a pair of pants for $2. And silk trousers to boot? WOW.

    I did score a pair of brand new Jeffrey Campbell sandals on my last thrift trip for $6. And you're right, there's a funny little high that comes along with a deal well-scored. :) I'd like to see this be a regular thing!


  12. Great find! I haven't found a good one for a while...need to go hunting! I love your striped maxi dress from the other day, by the way. And watch out for those laces.

  13. Hello! I just found your blog :) I'm now your style!

    PS. Congrats on buying those pants! I love a good sale ;)
