This outfit is brought to you by never paying full price.  Well, that’s not exactly accurate. I paid full price for the skinny jeans at H&M, but they were only $9.99 so I decided that they don’t count.  Let me break down the outfit.

It was only a matter of time before I took my love affair with yellow full scale and purchased a yellow coat.  I’ve been a little on the fence about a yellow coat fearing that it would be too darn bright and distracting. However, when I spotted this yellow coat at Zara for 50% off (and only $59.99), I decided to take it home for a spin to see if it would be a keeper.  I’m really happy I did as I absolutely love it.

Now to the boots – I have officially purchased my final over the knee pair of boots for the season, the year, the next 2 years. Stuart Weitzman makes some really gorgeous boots priced way more than I would ever allow myself to spend on boots.  I had actually long decided not to even bother with them and somehow due to a pop-up on my browser, I found myself on Tradesy.  Tradesy much like Ebay and Poshmark, is a site for reselling clothes, shoes etc. Tradesy tends to focus on designer brands and you can get designer brands for more than 80% off retail.  I was able to snatch this pair of Highland boots which retail for $798 for under $200. Note- First time buyers also get a 15% off coupon.

I posted over the weekend about the best SALES out there right now.  This is usually when I hit a wardrobe refresh.
