Weekend Shopping Outfit

Alma Mater jacket from Anthro
J. Crew silk top (in cotton here)
Juicy Couture bow skirt (similar here and here)
Aquatalia suede boots (current season version here)
Balenciaga bag (similar here and here)

Recently, I got a postcard alerting me of a clearance sale at the Washington, PA Off Fifth. I realize that outlets essentially are perpetual clearance sales, but I was still interested in visiting. I knew that my friend Sarah purchased very cool Comme des Garcons clogs at her local store not long ago. I wanted to see if we got anything interesting. Thankfully Chris and few friends wanted to check out the Men's suit sale so we packed into the car and headed south. Although they found no suits, Chris scored a nice pair of James Perse pants and I found a silk DVF top for $17!

There were a lot of other clearance tops from MBMJ, Milly, and Theory, and a few clearance dresses by Tibi. They did have CdG clogs (not on clearance) in white and green but I couldn't figure out my size and none seemed to be the right fit. There were a few pairs of Miu Miu Jewel flats (also not on clearance) in larger sizes. I stopped short of buying anything that wasn't a perfect fit (sale goggles and what not). But it is definitely worth the trip if you are looking for an occasion dress. There were a number of gorgeous options (particularly if you are a smaller dress size) from Zac Posen, Proenza Schouler, YSL, and Moschino. Prices were still kind of high but all were an additional 50% off.
