Shopping is my Cardio

Shopping is my cardio... I saw this phrase on a T-shirt and it fits me to a "T". I feel like I have been going high speed lately but had to share my recent buys because they were all steals so I don't regret a single purchase. All of these items are going to get so much wear now and through the winter!

This was my big purchase of the week. But it is also my anniversary present so I feel like I was able to splurge some. Considering this purse was originally $398, I feel so happy to get it on sale for $179! I have been so into pink lately and I can't wait for it to arrive. 

I fell in love with this vest from J. Crew last winter and but it was sold out everywhere. The only places I found it was on eBay selling for $200 or more! I was not about to pay that. So patience really does pay off. I was alerted by a fellow IG'er this vest hit factory stores! I got it at a price I could live with and now I am dreaming about all they ways I will wear it this fall and winter!! 
(I don't have a link for this as it has only been seen in factory stores recently, but run to the nearest or call and GET this vest!)

I've been dying to have a Carrie Bradshaw moment in a tulle skirt! They have been pretty pricey everywhere I've checked. Absolutely love this one from Shabby Apple or this one by Anthropologie. Both of these range from $78-$188! Found the one pictured here on Very Jane by Poppy and Dot for $17.99! I scooped it up real quick on my way to work! It's that serious! lol! 

My last steal vs splurge deal this week were these beauties from Target

I bought the black and leopard ones. I want a brighter shade of red heels so I passed on the red pair (I really just felt guilty for buying three pairs of the same shoes).  These are comparable to the Etta pumps from J. Crew but they are the fraction of the price! $29.99 versus $238. I say that's quite a steal!

Splurge Total:  $398 + $138 + $188 + $238+ $238 = $1,200!

Steal Total: $179 + $88 + $17.99 + $29.99 + $29.99 = $344.97

That's $855 I saved people!
