Confessions Of A Shopaholic

I LOVE.LOVE.LOVE shopping.

My bank account does not.

But I must brag a little - I never (like ever) pay full price for an item.
Sales and coupons are my best friends.

 I bought these four new spring items at Ann Taylor Loft for $44.80!

You read that right. . . $44.80!  Can you believe it!?  

I saved $138.20 meaning my original total was $183.00!

So here is a breakdown of how I did it.

Dot Print Cotton and Silk Blouse (aka black and white polka dot blouse) 
Original Price: $49.50

Julie Ankle Pants in coral 
Original Price: $69.50

Striped 3/4 Sleeve Cotton Sweater in yellow and white
Original Price: $44.50 
(the original price of this sweater is what I paid for all 4 items together!!!)

Sunwashed Tee in white
Original Price: $19.50

The entire store was 40% off. 
Even brand new arrivals (which all of my items were).

It was also the "savings cards" redemption period.  
(In case you don't know how they work you spend $50 and get $25 off.  I had 4 but only used 2).

I had a $15 Birthday "gift certificate."
(My birthday is in March and they mail that since I have a credit card.)

So basically I scored BIG time!  I seriously can't believe I got the 4 things for 44 bucks.  


For that kind of deal I can't not shop.  It would be un-American.  I mean really!  

So there ya have it.  You should shop w/ me.  This isn't a one time thing.  I score these kind of deals often at both Loft and The Limited.  Like I said I never pay full price.  

I'm so excited to wear some of my new clothes at BlissDom!!!!  

Are you a smart shopper?  What is the best deal you've ever scored?

P.S. The pics I took w/ my iPhone do not do these clothes justice.  For some reason the website wouldn't let me right click on the pics to save.  So go to the website to get a better look at each item!

P.P.S. My original shopping trip (when I "earned" the savings cards) I also picked up 3 adorable things for great deals!  I'll be wearing them at BlissDom so you'll see pics after that!!!



  1. Ain't it fun to find deals like will be dressed for the trip

  2. Wow that's amazing! I need to go shopping with you haha...LOFT rocks, they always have awesome sales.

  3. Awesome purchase!

    I also never pay full price for anything. It goes against my nature.

  4. Great savings and those are some seriously cute, cute clothes! You're going to be looking great at Blissdom!

  5. i love the loft! those are so cute! love the polka dot one!

  6. Can't wait to see these outfits!! I shop like that at Kohl's. I always wait until I have my coupon, then I hit the 70 and 80% off rack!!


  7. What cute clothes! I love deals so much!!! :-)

  8. Wow you scored big time!!!
    It definitely would have been un-American if you didn't shop with those coupons!

  9. Agreed, it's unamerican to pass up a good deal! I got a really cute wool coat for $4 once. It was on clearance and they had a Buy 2 get 50% off both deal going on. I don't think I'll ever find a deal like that again.
