Shopping with ALPITC!

Someone should take away my debit card and freeze it in a bowl of ice, much like Becky did in the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic.


This morning as I was waking up in my hungover stupor I looked over at my Blackberry, looked past the missed BBM message, text message and missed call and to the email from NY & Company that said starting today through 17th take $50 off a $100 purchase. 50% off? Ok!

Now, I know these coupons are a dime a dozen at that store, but I have had my eye on their new argyle sweater vests and I had recently purchased some new white blouses from Victoria's Secret (they have my absolute fav blouses, that are bodysuits and stay tucked in!) and I love that layered look, but hate wearing two shirts and risk being hot all day. (which makes me miserable).

So, I headed to the website armed to use this coupon. Then I remembered their sizing is all kinds of funky and I didn't want to get the sweaters in an odd, ill-fitting size (or pay shipping) so I after I dropped off my good friend at her car (yeah, we all had too many adult beverages last night) I headed over to Jordan Creek Mall for a quick trip. Quick it was! In and out within 25 minutes and here's the goods to prove it...

The two sweater vests, which I think are adorable! I could have bought one in every color. Fortunately, I picked two (all new arrivals were B1G1 50%), the black/white and the lavender/gray (it looks pink in the picture, but it's a light lavender).

Then I spotted this pretty little tunic. I love stuff like this that I can wear year round so I knew I needed this one too!

You can't really tell in the picture but it has little silver studs all along the neckline. Very dainty, and pretty. I think this will look great with a cardigan, leggings and some cute boots.

Speaking of leggings...

I can always use another pair of black leggings. I wear leggings at least a few times a week, so my black ones are almost always in the dirty laundry. These were a little pricy for leggings at $20, but the material is great and I know they'll last a little longer than plain ol' cotton ones.

After this I still had a little bit more to go to get to $100, so I snatched up this cute little top..

I'm not sure if I will like the ruffles in the front, but I thought it might look cute under a cardigan, so we'll see! This one may be going back.

Then, because all new arrivals were B1G1 50% I had to pick a 6th item for half off! So, I chose this cute top. It was cheap and the sale made it cheaper, so I just couldn't resist not taking advantage.

I'm also not sure of this one. I haven't tried any of these things on, so once I have done that I might change my mind. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to wearing them! I'm also pretty excited that I found all six of these items for only $72! Steal!!

This is my last splurge. For reals... I am a poor, college student now and poor, college students do not shop as much as I have been shopping lately!

Hope you enjoyed shopping with ALPITC!

What have you splurged on recently? Do coupons suck you in like they do me?

You bought some fabulous items! I WANT THAT TUNIC! Soooo pretty. I'm like you, someone needs to take my debit card away. I recently purchased Japanese snacks from some store in Japan. I mean, COME ON! WHO DOES THAT?! *raises hand*...

I was at Von Maur TWICE this weekend and Nordstrom once. I will blog about what I bought! It was a shopping weekend. Coupons don't really suck me in mostly because I lose them or I forget to print them.

NY&Co is my FAVE! I just went Sunday and used my $50 off a $100 or more purchase - SCORE!
