Sale items worth their cost?

January 5, 2011
 
Starting the New Year off by purchasing wisely.
 
Is that item on the sale rack really something that works in your wardrobe?
Buying an item at a sale price won't save money or extend your wardrobe if you have nothing to go with it, the color is un-flattering, or the size and style is completely wrong for your body.
 
                                                                                       
 
 
When I came across this cute flannel dress by Petticoat Alley on a super deal of about $13.00 at Macy's, my first thought was that it must look terrible on, or it wouldn't still be on the rack at that great price- it was originally $68.00
 
Step 1: Try on.  It fit, looked cute, was made very well, with vendible  piping in the front and collar seams!
 
 
Step: 2 Do I have more than 2-3 things or ways to wear it. Even if it's only $13.00, that is money that could be put towards something else if this item wasn't ever going to leave the closet!
 
 
 
Outfit 1
  •  Layer white long sleeve Free People tee underneath                     
  • Add Black leggings, or jeans
  • Add black belt for some waist definition
  • Black riding boots to keep the casual look
  • Silver chain necklaces
All items added where already in my closet!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Outfit 2
  • Layer with pink Old Navy tee
  • Add denim Inc capris
  • Black and silver belt
  • Add silver charm necklace
     
 
 
 
 
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Outfit 3
    • Layer with white Banana Republic tank
    • Same denim Inc capris, or skinny denim
    • Add silver chain necklace
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Outfit 4
    • Throw it over a bathing suit                          
                                                     
     
                                                                                                                      
               Four different looks already in my wardrobe-this is a great addition, and a very worthwhile purchase for $13.00!
     
                                 
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
                                                                                                                                        
     
    Use a black or gray layer just as well-this is fun and comfortable!  Petticoat Alley is great for feminine tops!
