35% off at Gap Today


Happy Halloween everyone!  What are you dressing up as tonight?  Unfortunately I haven’t been inspired with any great costume ideas yet, so it’s looking like a last minute decision.

I have a treat for you today courtesy of Gap – their entire website is 35% off today!  Here is an outfit I’ve put together from their offerings.

Thanks to the promo code every item above is under $40!

Some other cute finds include:

1969 lightweight knit inset legging jeans ($39 from $80)

Tweed mini skirt ($28.60 from $50)

Printed wrap dress ($39 from $60)

Happy shopping!


Joutfit of the Day

The denim on denim trend has been around for a few months now, but it’s taken me a while to warm up to it.  I’ve since decided I am a fan of the look.  This was then taken a little too far with my decision to dress up for Halloween last night as a “joutfit.”

But I think Jessica Alba’s look is a little more fashionable than mine was, so she’s going to be serving as the official inspiration today.  The key to all-jean ensembles is to wear different shades of denim.

All items are from Old Navy, which is having an extra 25% off all items through 10/30 with code ONSAVE25.

Plus a jacket now that the weather’s turned.  Can you believe it’s already snowing!  I love snow in December, but not so much in October.

Happy shopping!

Trendy Tuesday: Crossbody Bags

Welcome to the first weekly Trendy Tuesday post.  Every Tuesday I plan to show you some ways to get a trend on the cheap.  This Tuesday’s feature is crossbody bags.

As much as I love the look of bags, I’m often the person who crams all her stuff in her pockets just so she doesn’t have to lug around a big purse.  But crossbody bags are a much more fashionable compromise that leave my arms free and don’t weigh me down.  Here are some of my favorite discounted finds:

Add some serious pizzazz to your outfit with silver

Ivanka Trump Bag via Piperlime - $46.99 from $95

This one comes in a bunch of colors (and at this price you could pick up more than one)

TOKYObay contrast bag via ebags - $26.40 from $33

A great everyday bag to hold a lot of stuff

M20 via Nordstrom - $55.97 from $178

This one reminds me a lot of the Rebecca Minkoff bags I’m obsessed with, but for almost $250 less

R&Em via Macy's - $57.99 from $78

Happy shopping!

Outfit of the Day: Lemon and (Piper)lime

Recently I’ve been searching for going out outfits that are sexy without showing a ton of skin.  I think this outfit fits the bill.

This outfit is all from Piperlime’s sale, which is another of my favorite sites.  And to top it off, they always have free shipping and returns!  Plus, right now if you sign up for their emails you get an extra 15% off.

Dress – $69.97 from $185, Cuff – $14.97 from $22, Boots – $89.99 from $125, Belt – $14.99 from $28

Or wear these boots (with tights if you’ll be cold) to kick it up a notch:

Booties – $79.99 from $110

This dress could also pull double duty during the day if you pair it with a wide brown belt and brown riding boots.

Happy shopping!

Hello world!

Hello fellow bargain hunters!

Welcome to Never Retail.  I’ve noticed that I spend all my time that I’m bored in class or procrastinating making online shopping carts of the clothes I want to buy.  These are almost always sale items, because I pride myself on never paying retail for my clothes (hence the title).  There’s little I love more than finding a great deal.  However, I don’t normally get to buy all the clothes, since even on sale, it would add up to a quite a pretty penny.

Instead, I figured I’d share my sale finding powers with all of you.  Every day I will scour the online sales for some great deals and post them to the site so you don’t have to spend the time going through the websites yourself.  I also plan to have an “outfit of the day,” which will be a wearable outfit made up of my sale finds.  Eventually I’d also like to take reader requests for specific items.

Thanks again for stopping by, and I hope you find some great buys.

Happy Shopping!
