When I started this blog, I wanted to show petite pears (and women of all shapes and sizes) that they had options when it came to style. I was already planning a design upgrade for this month, but when I really thought about it, I realized that it was time for a bigger change.
As much as I will always be an advocate for women who don’t fit the cookie cutter mold, what I’m really passionate about when it comes to style is finding great deals. The majority of things in my closet weren’t purchased at full price. Don’t get me wrong, I love a designer dress like the next girl, but I love it even more if I can find it at a discount. Being a bargain hunter doesn’t make you cheap, it makes you a savvy shopper. Case in point: the beautiful Michael Kors camel coat in this post, found on the clearance rack at TJ Maxx for $39! If you flip through my outfit posts, you know I don’t need another coat…but I couldn’t resist. Proof positive that it was time to unveil Sale Rack Style!
Thank you so much for being a part of the La Petite Pear journey. I hope you’ll join me for the next chapter! Visit Sale Rack Style for more info on how I’ll be moving forward.
I wear a lot of black & white, and I often incorporate a pop of color. But, sometimes all you need are neutrals. Wear one shade for a monochromatic look, or combine two for compliment or contrast. Incorporate your outerwear like these ladies to complete the outfit.
As much as I love shopping and buying new things, I don’t have an unlimited budget (or unlimited closet space). More often than not, I’m remixing pieces that I’ve had for a while, and this outfit is the perfect example. The only piece that I wore for the first time was the skirt, which I got on clearance at Old Navy. It was perfect for mixing and matching with stripes, and a turtleneck under a lightweight sweatshirt was exactly what I needed for a chilly day in the city. Read More →
Whether your Valentine’s Day plans include a hot date with a special someone, hitting up a local singles event, or getting dressed up and drinking wine with your girlfriends, you need something to wear. The problem is that you don’t want to look like a Valentine (no hearts or multiple shades of love colors allowed). Solution: a little red dress. Festive enough to embrace the heart theme of the holiday, but also versatile enough to become a staple in your closet. To me, red dresses make an automatic statement, and while lace or a little texture can be nice additions, you don’t really need anything else. Pick a dress that compliments your figure. If you’re wearing red, you want to look and feel hot! There are so many different shades of red, whether you prefer deep burgundy or bold crimson, just be careful to find a red that works with your skin tone. These little red dresses are all under $75:
When I was in Boston with Linda, we hit up some major sales. Two of my best finds were the jeans and hat in this weekend look. The jeans are Citizens, and started at around $200. I paid $24! The hat, with the crazy large pom pom, started around $80, and I paid $30. I love a great deal! I also love winter layering, and days that are just warm enough that you can put on a warm vest and a cozy hat and spend a little time outside. Read More →
