First up, this cozy cardigan by BCBGMAXAZRIA (officially called "Etain Cable Knit Peplum Cardigan"):
This is my most amazing find, savings-wise. It was on clearance, and I got it for a measly $16. What was the regular price?
$218!!!! Does anyone really pay that much for sweaters? I think $16 is a great price, designer brand or not. I'm not 100% convinced the half-peplum thing is flattering on me, but it's a warm, cozy sweater so whatevs. Here's a model picture.
Shiseido Collector's Edition Makeup Palette, from holiday 2010. I found this in the beauty clearance section, in one of those security-sealed boxes (which they really should put all the mid/high-end makeup in, because it's soooo often broken into otherwise).
$15, was $50 USD when it debuted.
I wish they had foregone the teensy brushes and increased the size of the products, especially the eyeshadows and blush. But hey, can't argue too much for $15 (technically free with gift card), now can I?
And my most recent acquisition; the NARS x Pierre Hardy Vertebra nail polish duo (from Summer 2013).
$16.99, regular $29 USD. They come with a dust bag too which is adorable. I've tried the coral shade, Vertabra Left, but unfortunately smudged it before it dried so no pictures yet. :( It's almost a one-coater and gorgeous though!
Have you found any exciting deals lately?
Products purchased myself with gift cards. All opinions are my own.
