Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘jewelry

I very rarely if ever pay full retail price for any article of clothing or accessory and I rarely if ever shop at the stores in the mall. However, yesterday was one of those rare occasions because I stopped at Best Buy which just happens to be next door to the Concord Mall. I love the various clothing lines at Boscov’s but you really have to take your time because of how they have them set up throughout the floor. It was late and I was heading out the door but a 75% off clearance sign grabbed my attention. I only spent a few minutes going through a few racks and purchased 3 items, totaling $32.74.

Brown Premise Pencil skirt ($58.00) on sale $14.50

Chaus knit top with faux leather shoulders ($49.00) on sale $12.25

No matter how hard I try, I can never seem to find anything at H&M, but at New York & Company it’s a different story. Not that I needed more jewelry, but when the sign reads 80% off, it’s too hard to resist! I purchased two statement necklaces one in red and another in blue for $4.59 each, original price was $22.94.

If you are looking to add more jewelry to your collection, I suggest you check out New York & Company – I may go back because they are sending me a coupon for completing the survey printed on the receipt!

Living in New York in the ’80’s, I was always invited to “Purse Parties” and in addition to getting “designer inspired” bags on the low, it was a fun way to spend time with girlfriends.  Advance ahead to 2012, and once again I am being invited to “Purse Parties”, this time via Facebook but still an opportunity to get “designer inspired” bags and accessories on the low and spending fun time with girlfriends.

I’ve been working in West Chester, PA for almost 7 years, yet had never gone to the QVC Outlet which is less than 10 miles from the office. Today seemed like a perfect day to get out and window shop because I vowed not to buy any clothing in October. I am not a Monk and I broke my vow with a few items that were too hard to resist. Truth be told I was specifically looking for the Wendy Williams’ Adorn line, but they didn’t have it, must be too new.

The QVC Outlet has a lot of great bargains including summer season clothing marked 70% off, purses and shoes 60% off, home decor 40% off and jewelry 60% off. There was a very large assortment of purses, however, none of them “spoke to me” so none of them came home with me. I did fall in love with a pair of Anne Klein Kitten Heels and had to decide between black, beige or grey/lilac. I chose the grey/lilac because I’ve never had this color, and the price was right at only $20.48. I also purchased a Susan Graver skirt, $8.84; a Joan Rivers watch, $13.94; and a Melania Trump charm bracelet, $14.68, total with tax was $59.46. Now no more shopping until November, must only shop my closet!!!

Seasonal Home Decor – 40% off

This dress would look great with a pair of boots – $8.12

Shoes and too many purses to chose just one – so got none!

Aren’t these adorable?

I purchased the watch and skirt

Had to take picture of this customer’s boots – she purchased them from T.J. Maxx for $39.00, I hope they have them next month!!!

Have a fantabulous weekend – Smooches!


As with most stores, the fall fashions were in stock well before Labor Day to capture the back to school crowd as well as the excitement of updating our fall wardrobes. Rugged Wearhouse is a clothing store that has really stepped up their game. I remember years ago this store carried mainly jeans and t-shirts for young adults and school age kids, and although this is still their primary target the selection of women’s wear has greatly improved. To further entice the more mature buyer they recently introduced a Rewards Program. When you sign up online you will receive a card which is presented at checkout. The reward is $5.00 off your next purchase if you spend at least $25.00.
On this trip I did spend more than $25.00, and here are the items that I purchased.

Price point for these tops starts at $7.99

Career Clothing

Price point for these dresses start at $12.99

Shoes are a hit or miss, depending on when they get a shipment, I saw several pairs of boots but wanted to wait because I couldn’t remember what I already had in my closet. I did however, get these purple ones because I knew I didn’t have any in this color and I liked the funky heels!

Shoe price point varies, these were $9.99

Accessories galore starting as low as $.99 cents.

I purchased 2 necklaces for $1.49, a pair of earrings and bracelets for $3.99 each.

Scarves and purses start at $4.99

Another “return” trip to Ross yesterday after work (remember this one) and found a few new beauty and “As Seen on TV” products.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As Seen on TV Strutz Cushion Arch Supports; 1 size fits all men and women.  They have non-slip soles made of breathable fabric and can be worn barefoot, with sneakers, sandals or heels.  Hubby complained about his feet yesterday so I’ll ask him to try them out and give me a review, $7.99

Strutz CushionsAs Seen on TV Cami Secrets in Zebra, Leopard and Cougar prints.  I previously purchased a 3-pack in solid colors (black, white and beige) and have worn them under low V-cut shirts/dresses.  They are light weight, cool and attaches easily to the bra straps, $6.99.

Cami Secret

Absolute! Make-up Cleansing Tissues, 33 per pack with Pomegrante Extract.  There are 8 more cleansing cloths than most other brands, cleans well and cost only $2.99.

Hollywood Fashion Secrets Accessory Dots with Bonus Fashion Tape.  “When you don’t need a lot, use a dot!”  I have always wanted to try this product, according to the packaging it can eliminate gaps in your tops/wrap dresses; hold straps; adjust hemline/length; secure necklines, scarves and accessories.  $2.99 for 25 double stick tape dots and a bonus 6 strips of fashion tape.

Hollywood Accessory Dots
