My Fashion Deal of the Week!


A few weeks ago I posted about an item on my fall fashion wish list, the Vince Car Coat.
But at just under $500, on the wist list was probably were it was going to remain.

Ha! Until I found a nearly identical version of it, also by Vince, 
hanging all by itself just waiting for me at Nordstrom Rack. And for a rocking great price!


Just one little problem, it was the wrong size. But seriously, after a dozen years in fashion industry if I don't know how to make good on spotting a bargain by a little downsizing, then I should be ashamed of myself!




Paired with my new leopard flats and a pair of jeans, I'm good to go about anywhere.
{the Steve Madden 'Vegass-L' Flat}





I simply adore a great bargain!

  4. Dana, Aren't pugs the best? Ours is Roscoe and seriously, you couldn't ask for a sweeter little being in your life...he follows me around everywhere and when he hears the kids come home he can't get to the door fast enough. Enjoy yours! Janell

  5. I was JUST thinking about you the other day, I thought about asking Mom to make me something and about how you both are able to just whip something up! What a lovely lovely skill that many in my generation no longer posess or have learned. Or if we did, it was just to sew a napsack in home ec.

    this coat looks WONDERFUL on you - way to spot a good deal!

  10. Janell, you look gorgeous in your new coat and fun leopard flats. Very chic. I love that coat. Pugs are such wonderful dogs. My sister has one, too. Is that your front yard with those beautiful flowers?

  17. When something is too good to pass up I usually buy it and alter it like you did. Some of my favourite pieces have been nipped and tucked! You look gorgeous beside those lovely flowers.

  18. Great purchase and tweaking! I can't believe I didn't know you had a pug... I have this theory about bloggers and pugs, and am the owner of a little fawn cutie myself!

  19. Dang it. My Nordstrom's Rack is not that convenient to get to...so I don't go that much. But that jacket is almost making me want to go there right now....what a rock star you are!

  20. Ah! I was going to say how lucky you are, but I think BRILLIANT is more like it! And I love the shoes.
