Personal Shopper

This is my second official personal shopping assignment for my #1 and only client, my mom! She lives in the Philippines where shopping isn't the best so she often asks me to shop for her.

This time, I was told to get summery blouses and dresses. I have a hard time spending full price on clothing so I just got her a few items at deep discounts. Here's what I ended up with!

Clockwise from top left

1. Rebecca Taylor work to date dress
$126 (orig $375)

2. Michael by Michael Kors leopard blouse
$23 (orig $99.50)

3. Michael by Michael Kors printed drawstring dress
$67 (orig $149.60)

4. Mia Via watercolor leopard blouse
$ 54 (orig $138)

5. Michael by Michael Kors polka dotted blouse
$19 (orig $79.50)

And just for fun, I got $841.60 worth of merchandise for $289
The total savings = $552.60!!

What's something you got a crazy deal on?

Good job! I bet it will feel like Christmas when she get's all those goodies!

I just got a pair of FREE $70 jeans at GAP for the gap 10,000 jeans give away thing they had so I'd say that was a pretty good deal. Especially since I was needing another pair of skinny's from there and would have bought them anyway!

wow that Michael Kors polka dotted blouse is a steal! I once bought boots that were orig $130 for only $25, that was a great day haha That's why I never pay full price ;P

Well done! The two dresses are my favorites! I love outlet shopping for good deals but really having done much shopping (other than baby shopping) lately!

Kileen: I got all the 2 leopard blouses from Nordstrom Rack and everything else from Bloomies. They were having an additional 40% off clearance!

Tales of a young mamma: I really wanted those free jeans but I'm out of the country at the moment! Lucky you!

Fashionable Asians: I loved the polka dotted top too so of course, I got one for myself too! Those boots were a steal!

I voted for you !
At the moment I am feeling that I can find so many great bargains going at the back of most stores that I don't even bother with the new collection at full price ...I wear most of the times basics so a basics in clearance stays a basics right ?

Anonymous: I apologize if I've offended you. I love the Philippines (grew up here in Manila for 15 years), love the food, the culture, the people and the local labels. When I say shopping isn't the best, I mean that many brands either aren't available or if they are, they're not at deep discounts like in the States.

Your mom is going to look fantastic in her new clothes!
