Let me just say if you like designer denim Nordstrom Rack is the place to go. They have a large selection of brands and a wide variety of sizes (even petite) most marked 50% or more off. Which leads me to my first find of the day.

There was lots of denim to choose from, but what I liked about these was the dark wash, the lightweight twill and the ankle length (well, ankle on me anyway). I took a handful of tops into the fitting room, but the only one that survived was a flowing cardi. I had started seeing these blouse-y open tops popping up at Zara and other trendy retailers. While I liked the style none were under $60, a hard price to justify for what is probably a seasonal trend. I got this one for a steal!

I love the print on this top! There were other prints and some solids, but I thought the zen Asian style print fit the feel of the piece and the look I was going for. I was going to end my shopping excursion here, but I couldn't leave without looking at the shoes. For me looking in stores for shoes is oft in vain. I wear a size 5 and most of my shoe purchase are made online, for full price (scoff). Well today was my lucky day because there was a small selection of size 5 shoes. I fell for these cute Report kitten heels and nude pumps were also on my list of must buys.

Well that was my shopping excursion today. I spent more than I anticipated, but I didn't expect to find shoes and when I find shoes that fit I have to jump on it, because it doesn't happen often. In total I spent $134.84 and I got pieces that I can mix and match with things I currently own.
Where do you go to find bargain shopping? What's the best "haul" you've had? Any must have pieces for spring that you got on sale?
