A Bargain Basement off Michigan Ave

The goods:
• chambray shirt from J.Crew

• red denim from Marshall's
• two-tone heels from Zara
• belt from Forever21
• wrap watch by La Mer
• bracelets from IGWT, Forever21

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of fire engine red pants for a while now. I came across plenty of options, but they were either too expensive, not the right fit or shade. I found this fantastic pair at Marshall's for just under $20! The Marshall's location downtown is quite literally a bargain basement ... in recent weeks I've found an amazing rose gold sequin Max Studio dress for $30, incredible plush hand towels for $7, gold-rimmed Vera Wang for Wedgewood dessert plates for $5, just to name a few. Marshall's joins Forever 21 on my list of "check points" for deeply discounted finds before settling on the more expensive versions. Now, I think need to head back for more of these jeans in blue and green ...
