Shopping finds

Monday, March 30, 2009

After being quarantined for a few weeks, I made my way to some shops this past weekend.  I found some goodies at Gap, Anthro, and Nordstrom  but I had to share some of my preppy bargains with y'all. 

I bought this dress  for Kate at a boutique in Hilton Head last summer.  It is made by Hartstrings.  But yesterday, I saw the same dress at Costo! Oh how I love that store.

They also had this one (which I had to buy).  It is reversible.

It reminds me of Lily and will be perfect for the beach.
And this one.  I have always loved pink seersucker.

Just so you know...they run a little small.  I bought Kate a 4 (and she is not even 3 yet).

Finally, I know all of my preppy friends will love these pajamas.  They are hot pink with polka dots and red lobsters. I found them at TJ Maxx!

Just trying to do my part to stimulate the economy!
Tell me, how are you "saving" money these days?

  3. Oh my goodness, I bought that pink dress last week for Jacey and got Jaden the lime green one with pink ladybugs. I also picked up a couple of cute Carter's cotton play dresses for Jaden there. I love Costco too! (well, actually, I love stimulating the economy anywhere, but Costco is especially fun) :)

    Have a great week, I hope Kate is feeling better!

  5. Very cute dresses....I love them all but my favorite is the seersucker...LOVE IT!!

    If anyone knows me even just a little bit knows that I love and adore THRIFT STORE shopping. Nothing gets me to hyperventilating faster than finding an article of clothing with so much character that cost 25 cents or less...LOL...seriously, I found the CUTEST top/dress for 15 cents...I'm talking 15 pennies :-)...and yes the store clerk had to resuscitate me.

  7. What great finds!!! How am I saving money? Sadly, eating out less. I love to cook, but I also love a meal prepared by someone else, which can get expensive!

  8. So cute! I wish the pink seersucker came in my size!

  9. I bought the same ones, and I bought the blue and white seersucker!! They were a great price~huh?

    Are those pj's for Kate or for you?? I must have them!! We go to the beach each summer and it is tradition that we have a big lobster feast, and I would love for Hayden to have those jammies. I am headed to Houston in about 30 min, I will be stalking all of the TJ Maxx's!! I have to go drop our passports at the Chinese Consulate for visa's, and will be looking hard for the stores in that area.

    I love Costco, but not more than my husband. He is not allowed there without the supervision of a responsible adult:)

  12. Too weird...you probably aren't going to believe me, but two weeks ago, I bought those exact pjs at TJ's on Wednesday and the EXACT same two Heartstrings dresses at our Costco! I also bought a Baby LuLu at Costco. Very Cute!!!

  13. All the dresses are adorable. I am sure Kate will look adorable in all of them!

  14. Hey girl, I am finally getting to check in on you. I hate that Kate has been SO sick! It is hard to be stuck in the house for so long.

    I love the dresses and pjs you found. I especially love a good deal!

    I also LOVE the cabinets painted! It looks awesome!

    I have been shopping a lot at Gap and a childs closet. I just cashed in my Discover points and got 350.00 to Gap...it's like free money!!! LOL
    I do my part in stimulating the economy...just ask dh!

  17. I just bought the exact PJ's from TJ Max on Friday. I can't wait to wear them on my girls trip this weekend at the beach!

  18. Such cute finds! We would make great shopping buddies- Anthro and Nordstrom are my favorites and Gap is right there too! Glad you got a chance to get out. I need to do the same!!!

  19. Just catching up - glad Kate is feeling better. I could have written this post almost word for word. I bought Lucy the exact same flower dress last summer for this summer. I was waiting anxiously to pull it out this summer - then I saw it at Costco - oh well. I purchased the blue reversible and the seersucker in blue with red bows (already had a pink seersucker)at Costco.(Great shopping minds think alike) Fun finds! Love the pj's I think I need to hit TJ Maxx this week:) Hope all's well!

  20. Love those PJs! I was just at T.J. Maxx tonight but didn't see them :(

    I am not saving a dime! I am spending more than ever! HELP!

  21. Oh, these dresses are all so cute...I love them all, but the seersucker is my fav:)

    I am about due for a TJ Max and a Marshalls run to see if I can find some summer bargains for the kids!

  23. great bargains - our Co*stco actually had Lily P last week and I was oh so tempted to buy but have no idea what age our daughter will be so I refrained :( As far as saving $ - same thing here, lots of TJ, homegoods, shopping here. Hope Kate is on the mend.

  24. Costco is the bomb. I dropped 250 there today. Get the executive card so you get all the coupons. I bought tons of vitamin today with the coupons and a bottle of celebration champagne for $4 off.

    The beach wear speaks sweet nothings to my ear! Are the lobster pj's for you or Kate? I'm in lurve!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love, love, love the pajamas! Do you think I could convince people that the lobsters are really crawfish? If so, I could get them for all my relatives from Louisiana!

    I wish we had a Costco near. I have heard such great things about them.

  29. I am budgeting more carefully and enjoying the simple things. Living with less but finding that I have more.
    We buy second hand, pass it forward and use what we have.

  33. Hey, I just bought a couple of those dress at Costco...on the first day I had my new membership (thanks to your post about Lily P and Lacoste...which they had neither of). I like the pink with flowers best on my girls...really cute. Oh, and I bought three of those???

  34. That little pink seersucker is adorable! Great finds, I'm heading to Costco. My neighbor also got some adorable things there!
    Need to find a good TJ Maxx here too. Everytime I walk in there I have to walk out because everything is so disorganized, however, great bedding and household items to be found.

    Have a great week.

  35. Went to TJ Maxx here in Knoxville, Tennessee to see if they "happened" to have the PJ's. THEY DID! So cool! Thanks for the tip! I also picked up some super yummy pink striped Ralph Lauren PJ's too! Can't wait to go to sleep tonight! I heart good pajamas!

  41. LOVE seeing previews of your cute finds for Kate! I was just at the Heartstrings outlet here in FL today and picked up some adorable things as well!! I was amazed at how similar some of their prints are to Lilly! I never find such cute things at my Costco!

    I adore those lobster pj's!!! Hope I can find some like those for Bug too! Might have to hit the TJ down here tomorrow since we will have another rainy day.

    Kim... you are my shopping idol!

    Thanks for all your sweet prayers for Grant. He still really needs them and it makes me smile when I know people are still thinking and praying for him.

  44. I was in our Costco last week and I picked up these dame dresses---I think I'll hve the seersucker one monogramed--our Costco also had an adorable Hartstring Ladybug dress!!! We live on the East Coast near the Lily Warehouse--so our Costco has never gotten Lily's--I have friends that work for the company and they told me the company is targeting the West Coast to spread the brand---I'm jealous you have Lily at your Costco--but at least we are close enough to go to the warehouse sales!!! Love following your blog--glad your unlocked!!!
