Thrifty Thursday

Do you know what makes me happier than free chocolate? Finding shoes you love at an amazing price.  Remember these wedges I told you about last week? Yours truly went back to Macy's since they're having their Friends and Family sale, and I am now the proud owner of them for $44.

Moving on.  I had wanted these leopard beauties for quite some time and almost bought them last week at full price.  That would have been what I like to call amateur hour.  Good thing I didn't because I found them at DSW for $36 [insert me on the other side of the computer screen with a huge grin on my face].


And last but certainly not least, I started to have major buyer's remorse over the Michael Kors wedges.  I did at least get them on sale, but I still couldn't justify $150 when they didn't fit just right. My pinky toe was a tad more than squished you could say.  So instead I found another pair at DSW that should be shipped to me tomorrow.  The color is slightly different, but it has the same general look as the MK wedge.  We shall see how it is in person.

I am trying to be smarter about my spending so I can save up to invest in a new camera.  While we're on that subject, which do you prefer, Nikon or Canon? Ready, set, discuss! And then head to Macy's and DSW!

I love all three, my favorite is that first pair of wedges! Great finds!

I just invested in a Canon camera, having a Canon Powershot the last few years, I know the brand and how it operates (for the most part, this is a big time camera, so it's taking some time to learn how to use it), but I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

Way to be thrifty! As for the camera, I have a Nikon D5000 and love it! I've never used a Canon, so I can't say for sure that Nikon is better, but I'm happy with it. Happy camera shopping! It's a fun purchase to make :)

Do you have a nordstrom rack near you? I always find great deals on designer shoes there. well, not always--sometimes you have to check back, but it's totally worth it.
