October Purchases

Since September I was on a 'no-buy,' naturally in October I overly indulged. This month was filled of all sort of sales, deals and rediscoveries, I really couldn't resist not that I tried

To begin with one of my favourite stores, JCREW. 
JCREW can be incredibly expensive but if  your patient you can find wonderful deals. I scored some awesome things in the past and this trip in my opinion was no exception. 

Originally $172 CAD, I got these babies on sale, then additional 40% off, and then addition 15% (student discount), they ended up being around $70 CAD

Next, Shoppers Drugmart (Walgreens/Ultequivalent) was having this great deal which was $20 off $60. But the best part of this deal? it included their nicer makeup. So along with some necessary purchases I got these unnecessary ones:

& less exciting but equally not necessary

L'Oreal | Paris Voluminous Mascara

Next we have ZARA and this purchase I can justify more so because I've been looking for a jacket like this for quite sometime now and couldn't past it up because I knew I would regret not getting it. 


Moving on, we have Kohl's, now I have never bought anything from here and I've only been there a handful of times but after seeing Memoirofapreppymom post a picture of these bow loafers on Instagram, I knew I had to have them 

These were sale for $35.99 with an addition 20% off (originally $60). 

After those came the JCREW Factory. They always have good sales here, and they ship duty free to Canada, which is always great. 
I got this shirt on a great deal. During the long weekend here (thanksgiving) they were having 50% off site wide. During the final hours of the 50% off I think someone their mess up because they release an addition discount on all shirts that wasn't suppose to be their until the following day once the 50% deal was over. I know this because as soon as I called in asking why the promo code their site was offering wasn't working it disappeared but not before they honoured the code.

Originally $80 USD (on the Canadian site its $68 on the USD site), addition 50% made it $40 and on top on that I got an extra 30% because of the mistake, making this top only $28  

Next  eBay. I love eBay, I have a handful of things I bought off there, some hits some misses but overall I've been happy with all my purchases. This month I rediscovered my addiction and bought

I adore this, it came better then I expected it too and absolutely love it. 
I won it for $10, if you don't bidding you can always 'buy it now' (thats the link i used)
Overall I would give it an 8/10 the necklace itself is beautiful and very true to picture. The only negative is the clasp, it isn't as smooth as I would like it to be but it can easily be swap out if needed.

Finally Gap, I just bought this dress 2 days ago and already adore it. I love GAP sales and always luck out and the other day was no exception.

This dress was originally $80, on a sale for 24.95 then an extra 30% off so I got it for $17.46 !
This was at the Robson Street location for any Vancouver girls that are interested
I thought it would be cool to show you what I look in the dress because to me it doesn't look like the stock photo.

That's all for my October Purchases,
