Happy Monday Everyone!
Anyone who has ever shopped with me knows that I always start in the clearance section. Why pay full price for something when you can possibly find something just as nice for a fraction of the price? Sometimes I wonder when are the best times to hit the clearance at certain stores. Most times we expect the best time to be the end of a season but sometimes not. So, I decided to start a new adventure to help all other clearance-heads out there who may not have time to go from store-to-store. The easiest way to show off what I’m liking best: dressing room try-ons.
Up first is Lane Bryant. Not only did they have a decent selection marked down to clearance prices but they were also offering an additional 40% off those clearance prices! I guess I picked a good time to go!
Please excuse the yellow haze created by the lighting in their dressing rooms.
Livi Active Wear- I tried their active wear for the first time. I like the fit of the pants and the cute lace detail on the side. I’m not too big on long sleeved workout wear though. How about that weird placement of their security tags??lol
I’m a firm believer that a well fitted blazer/jacket completes a look. Lane Bryant had a nice selection of well-cut blazers on clearance. This light pink number was still a bit pricey even with the discounts but I can see why. The cut and the amount of stretch makes this jacket fit like it was tailor made for your body!
These tapered ankle jeans had a decent fit and can be worn dressed up or down.
Another jacket was this beautiful eggplant ruffle hem bomber-like jacket. This jacket would be great for work or casual looks.
Close-up to see the silky-shiny texture of the jacket.
This cute military-style jacket that has just enough stretch for a figure-flattering look.
These pants didn’t have as great of a fit as the jeans. They seem to be either too loose or not loose enough in certain areas, I can’t decide.
This short kimono/poncho style cardigan has a rich purple color and luxe ribbed texture that made this simple piece look oh-so-fancy.
I paired it with this belt that was also on clearance which had this beautiful jeweled detail that was covered with a plastic film for protection.
They had a few dresses but this was the only one in my size. I love the ruffle detail on the sleeves and the pockets. I just didn’t think this dress was too flattering on me.
Every wardrobe needs a cute denim jacket and Lane Bryant again has gotten it right with the cut of their jackets. The amount of structure and stretch makes this an easy piece to wear.
The frayed details on the cuffs and hem adds an extra interesting touch.
All in all, I was pleased with the selection of clearance items available at Lane Bryant. I must also mention that the section was clean and very well organized making it easy to see all that was available. I did purchase two pieces that I will do another post on how I styled them. Can you guess what they were?? Stay tuned for the answer, how I styled them, and more clearance rack goodies!
