Confessions of a Coupon Whore Edition ll

As you all should know Macy's has become one of my little obsessions. I was NEVER a Macy's shopper before, and was kinda aggravated when people were like I shop at Macy's. Just aggravated because I love shopping in general and it's a skill that I succeed at in any store. I digress. Recently, I can truly appreciated the I-shop-at-Macy's attitude become it has almost become mine. This place is like a one stop shop <- well really not really, but you get what I mean. The main thing that I appreciate is how Macy's values their customers.

So... I was super ecstatic when I opened my letter and realized it wasn't a bill but 4... yes 4 coupons waiting for me. It was like the 'coupon God's' heard my 'coupon prayers'!!! I actually received two 20% off coupons as well as two $10 off coupons (go me)!!!

One of the first areas that I check in Macy's is the shoe department. As I've tweet'd before it is sooo hard for me to find shoes in my size (5 1/2). I know a lot of you are side eyeing me right now cause you think that they have my size everywhere which is sooo not the truth. I actually saw the pair below and thought that I really needed this particular color. However, I noticed that the 5 1/2 was actually Nine West. Nine West is a brand that doesn't fit true to size (for me). I've even had issues with the size 5 being too large. Luckily this pair fit semi-great. The straps on the top were a bit loose but I believe a pad in the bottom will take care of that issue. The shoes were originally $89 yet on sale for $44.50, and with my $10 off... $34.50.

Now I really believe that accessories totally pull the outfit together. So you all should know that I have a weakness for anything pearl. The necklace was originally $40 and after my coupon it rang up for $8. What a steal!!!

I guess runner up to my weakness for all things pearl, would be my love and adoration for bows. If you guys took a look in my jewelry box you would think that I don't know what I have . I have bow rings, earrings, necklaces, and etc. I LOVE them, LOVE them. This pair I would categorize as classy. The shape of the bow is more of a classic shape and it has diamond like detailing. I could see myself wearing these when I'm 40.

The last item that I picked up was a pin/brooch. I figured I'd find something to attach it to. Plus I absolutely LOVE the fact that it has a crown and a cross attached to it. Both the earrings and the pin/brooch was around $3.00.

Basically, the moral of this post is... DON'T MISS a Macy's one day sale and have your coupon in tow!!! Let me know if you all have had the opportunity to find a good deal, even better if you had a coupon to accompany it!!!
