Beauty on a Budget: Fabulous Fashion Finds

I realize my blog is a little beauty heavy, so I thought I would post on a few of my recent fashion finds. I don't normally shop clearance racks, although I might now! I recently found 2 awesome pieces that will fit in perfectly with the rest of my wardrobe.

My grand total for BOTH of these items was under $15! Keep reading!

If you follow me on YouTube (If you don't, you really should! Click here to see my channel!), you may have seen my most recent fashion haul video. In it, I mention that I like shopping at Maurices, but it is really hit and miss for me. (Check out the haul video at the end of this post!) One day I go in there and I find a million things I just have to have, and then the next, I just don't like anything!

As a hit and miss store, I found myself with a gift card from my birthday last year and I still had $7 left on it after the purchases in that haul video. So I went back this weekend to see what else I just had to have and what I could possibly get for $7, as I wasn't feeling very spendy--Whaa? Thats not like me! ;)

I went in knowing the one thing I really needed for my wardrobe was a black top. Any old black top would do at this point because I was very desperate! I just so happened to stumble across this adorable black top on their clearance rack.


Earlier this year, I did quite a haul at JCREW and I picked up a cream skirt with black polka dots as well as a reddish/coral colored skirt I've been super excited to wear them, but I just didn't have the right tops. Needless to say, they have been sitting abandoned in my closet ever since. How sad!

Thanks to this recent trip to Maurices, I have now completed these outfits and I am very happy about it!






I also left the store with an amazing sweater that I am absolutely smitten with! I wasn't looking for a new sweater, but found this on the clearance rack too. I really love over-sized sweaters especially for Fall, so you could only imagine my excitement when I realized I could purchase this super soft, comfy, over-sized brown sweater for about $7!!






Maurices had marked down items PLUS an additional 75% off already marked down prices. Therefore, I scored both the black top and the brown sweater for less than $15 total. Plus, I had $7 left on my Maurices gift card I got for my birthday last year. So I paid less than $7 out of pocket for these lovely new items!!!

My Advice: Don't overlook clearance racks, you can find a steal if you just keep looking!

Also, ICYMI: Here is the video I was referring to earlier. This was my previous fashion haul. It included my FAVORITE pair of Jogger pants that I am completely OBSESSED with! Hope you enjoy!
