Bookmarked Bargains

Chicago style

Beth Nelson style

fall style

The goods:
• taupe drape dress from Mikkat Market (a steal for $22!)
• black blazer from BCBG outlet
• Hue tights from Nordstrom Rack (they always stock tons of these and they're only about $5)
• buckle booties from Mod Cloth
• chain and vintage watchband necklace from a street vendor in New York
• vintage Casio watch and my fave IGWT gold bangle

I perfected the art of bargain shopping at a young age, thanks to my stylish, but super thrifty mother and grandmother. Shopping online is even better (almost) because you can search for the best deal on any item, not to mention bookmarking some of the best affordable online shops. Two of my faves are Mikkat Market and ModCloth. Both offer unique finds at very awesome prices. I love Mikkat's unbeatable deals on unconventional garments that I can't find anywhere else. They add new items weekly and rarely is anything priced over $70 (but $70 is still a great deal for a silk leopard dress!). ModCloth has an extensive array of clothing, shoes, and accessories, all very affordable. And if you don't feel like digging through the thrift shops yourself, ModCloth offers fantastic vintage selections as well.

Like all good deals, items go fast (and do sell out on both sites) ... so like all vintage and flea market finds, if you see it and want it, you had better get it before it's gone.
