Some of my favorite clothing pieces are the unexpected things that I find at the end of the season. Not where you are looking for something specific, but just seeing what they have. You know what I am talking about. Those racks of clothes they fill at the end of the season for 75% off. I now like to check those out just for the thrill of the hunt. Past experience has taught me that there are often some diamonds in the rough. Like these Nine West shoes. I would not have bought them full price because they would not go with a lot of things. But at the end of the season, marked down and double marked down, does it really matter how often you can wear them? I thought not. The contrast of beige textured linen and bright yellow slick patent leather make these nine west shoes drool worthy.
My favorite jacket is an orange ultra suede jacket with a unexpected black and white print lining that I bought for a steal. Full price I would not have even slowed down for something that bold and unique. But at 50% off it caught my eye and I tried it on. Then I was determined to watch it and get it for less (I mean how many 5’10” women could there be that would have the height to wear it?). Luckily my persistence paid off. I surely did not realize when purchasing it that it would become a favorite.
Although I have had to wait 6 months to wear these shoes I think buying a bargain at the end of the season was worth my wait. You’ll definitely be more likely to try something a little more out of the box if the price is right. And who knows, that unexpected thing may just become your new favorite. -Marianne
