This week was kinda unstellar but at least I got out of my pj's and gym gear (almost) every day!
Lesson #3: Great deals can be found in unusual places.
Unique clothing and accessories can be found in places off the beaten path. In Canada we have a grocery store that carries the Joe Fresh clothing line, fresh and affordable looks created by the upscale designers of Club Monaco. When you're on the hunt for something modern and trendy but don't want to spend a lot of moolah on a style that passes with the wind (not to be confused with passing wind which never goes out of style in this house), Joe's the place to go! By the way, their kids' line is off the chizang (not sure if it's still cool to use that word...) and their styles mirror those of Crewcuts except with prices that won't leave you penniless.
Outift #1 is a recently discovered grey striped shirt from Joe ($7) and is paired with a luxe yellow scarf found at Value Village ($2), my favorite color combo of late. Gray belt was ($1) at VV, jeans j.crew outlet, boots were more of a splurge for a new year's eve par-tay two years ago (and yes, it too was off the chizang! ;)
Outift #2 is one that boasts a recent acquisition from Costco! (My vocabulary insists on bigger words whenever I'm wearing my new geek chic glasses from RayBan. :) Sweater was $16 but super comfy cozy and has a modern timeless feel to it (aka, it won't go out of style tomorrow). Jeggings ($10) from Charlotte Russe and boots ($10) from Old Navy online, belt ($1) VV.
As a busy mom of four, I don't have too much time to go out of my way for a shopping excursion. Joe Fresh and Costco understand that and have made it easy for us busy moms to spend our grocery money on things that will help us look a little cuter and help us avoid that jumbo pack of chocolate cookies. Because everyone knows that new clothes have zero calories and are way more fun than chewing on celery sticks!
What are your favorite unlikely sources for great clothes at a great price?
