When I was little, I swear, my sister and I were both trained like bloodhounds by my mom to spot an "extra % off" sale sign. I see one and it takes me right back to those days in the Monroe Pecanland Mall...sweet, sweet Rave. Who shopped at Rave? Admit it!
If you, like me, love those extra % off sales, then they're kinda everywhere right now...retailers need to clear out that summer stuff this time of year because fall starts arriving in stores any day now. I was at Belk today shopping for a client and their stuff is all an EXTRA 50% off right now, and there are some racks where it's already marked 75% off before the extra 50. Geeez!!! Soooo, you've still got a few weeks of summer left, and you can find some great pieces that'll transition into fall like this little get-up by Free People. This top, for example, can be layered over a long-sleeve shirt when it starts getting chilly with a pair of wide-leg jeans. I love it! Now it's paired with a little pair of cropped knee-shorts in the most lightweight fabric. The top is gonna run you about $25 after the discount and the pants about $30.
Some other stuff I saw: Furla handbags, royal blue Joe's wideleg jeans (for $22.00), Free People jeans for $9 (!!), some cute Lucky belts, some Sam Edelman flats, French Connection aplenty...When I asked the sales girl when the sale was ending, she replied, "Umm, they don't tell me anything around here. I'm just summer help." Thanks for that. Awesome. So, get your butt down there.
