Shopping Notebook - Marshalls Shoes + New Fall items!

This time of year is a challenging time to shop. On one aisle you have summer clearance calling your name and on the next aisle is new fall merchandise..what is a fashionista to buy? It's sometimes hard to resist yet another pair of shorts for only ten dollars (or even less!), but at what time do you stop buying for the summer and start shopping for fall? Stores are literally banking that despite summer heat waves, you are ready to shop sweaters and boots months ahead time.

So..are you still shopping summer clearance or are you ready to buy your fall wardrobe?

 Juicy Couture Nautical "swimsuit" $49.99
This adorable and I use the term swimsuit loosely, as I don't know how much swimming
can be done while wearing this, but you will look super cute lounging by the pool!
HUGE shipment of BCBGeneration Sandals $29.99

  Made in Italy brand on clearance for $49 ( sells for over $200 at regular price in other stores!)
My store had a few aisles of clearance bags, a great time to score a quality bag
 and still have many months to use it.

New FALL merchandise:
Nine West Messenger Bags $39.99 ( currently in dept. stores for over $80) 
Available in brown, black and grey.

The quality of these bags were so nice, seemed like a more expensive brand that just Nine West. 
Betsey Johnson Leopard travel bag $39.99 (this is also at Macys now for around $80) 

  New fall boots were being  loaded on the shelves. Now is the time to buy when selection is brand new and sizes are fully stocked!

Rampage Tribal Inspired Leather Boots $29.99 (also currently in stores for around $80)
Bandolino Dressy Wedge $29.99
A steal at this price! 

Work appropriate with a chic bow (very Kate Spade) 

Michael Kors Patent Loafers $59.99 (reg $110)
I have never seen this classic style from this designer at this price! 
Fingers crossed they continue to carry more MK shoes.
Home Department:
 This stool looked straight out of a French vintage store from TJ Maxx.
Kate Spade Stationary $5.99
signed, sealed, delivered.
Storage ottomans starting at only $19.99 in cool patterns at Homegoods .

How chic is this Parisian inspired hat box (..that I made my boyfriend hold up for the pic.)?!

Thanks for reading!


  1. I am a TJ Maxx girl, but after this post I think I will pay more attention to Marshall's!! I love the Mikael Kors loafers and the Betsy Johnson travel bag in leopard!!

    1. It seems to depend on which store has better merchandise in your area and mine has always been at Marshalls for the most part, although they both seem to carry such similar (and sometime identical) items that I end up at both stores, but right now Marshalls is def. worth checking out!


  2. Awesome! I'm planning to check it out on Friday. I saw the Betsy Johnson bag at my Marshalls last week, but it was all blinged out in sequins! :D


    1. Oh cool, can't wait to see what your store has! Haha, those blinged out versions of the bag are not my thing and I see them everywhere..Love this leopard bag, it's so cute!

  3. What a great idea and post. Love these stores and I can always find great buys there.


  4. fab finds! I love the furniture!
    I'm so not ready for fall. I want to enjoy my just purchased summer gear a bit longer. haha

    1. I hear ya Nancy, just when it becomes time to wear your favorite summer dress, they bring out the fall merch!

  5. Amazing items! So great:)

  6. I know, it's hard to stay away for even a week, lol!

  7. Wow that clutch is amazing. Ahhhh I wish I could afford any of this haha!

    Loveee it.
    What a great post!

    Love Em x

    1. Loving the clutch too! You just have to know how to shop to save your money ;-)
