Ow Ow Ow Outlets Baby

Truth: I love to shop. Double truth: I am flipping amazing at it.

NO seriously. I know I am completely tooting my own horn, but I can't help it, I am just great. If there is a deal, I will find it. If there is another lady in the dressing room she will ask me what I think of her shirt/dress/whatever-it-is she is trying on, and I will tell that lady the truth, and she will be like, oh my goodness you are so helpful! No joke. This hasn't just happend once or twice. Seriously 3/5ths of the time I go shopping some stranger asks my opinion on what they are contemplating purchasing. I must exude "shopping guru" or something. It truly is a gift.

Don't believe that I am the deal-finder-of-the-century? Take this yummiest thing I have ever seen amazingly gorgeous and soft Tory Burch yellow suede Solano jacket (yes, I know you just swooned, but it gets better). Originally $430, found this weekend for $200 AND eligible for BOGO sale so you could just go ahead and live a little. Sigh.

Not convinced? How about this stunning silk charmeuse and chiffon Nicole Miller Signature evening gown, originally $900 for... I can't even handle typing this... $170. Oh man, if I only had a large, disposable income OR someone else to buy all of this gorgeousness for on their Visa, OR if someone would just HIRE ME ALREADY to be the buyer for their boutique... then everything would be right with the world.

The best part about my amazing shopping skills, is the fact that I love to shop for other people almost as much as for myself. Like this weekend, as amazing as that TB jacket was, I was really shopping for my bridesmaid's and for my Stepmom for the wedding. Ok, I also really liked this olive green wool BCBG trench that was 50% off... but how can you blame a girl?

Back to other people! At Aldo I found a million+ strappy gold heels all on super clearance at 70% off. Hurry to your nearest Aldo outlet, run! They had such variety! I ended up with these cuties for my cousin Rachi...

And these sexy thangs for my girl Aimee...

Woot! Neiman Marcus Last Call had some really beautiful evening dresses on mad clearance. This gorgeous deep coral Kay Unger dress was only $140 bucks and they had a coral Marchesa gown (you can see it to the left of the Kay Unger gown, it was light coral and all beady and fabulous) that was originally $1300 but was marked down to $200... I just wish I had someone to buy them for! I really was having too much fun.

I searched pretty hard for my Stepmom and found a few things here and there, but nothing that was perfect. Oh well, guess I'll have to go shopping again soon. :)
