Hi all, are you ready for the holiday shopping? Were any plans made so far? When I talked to my girl-friends on phone, we all agreed to shop smartly this year. To avoid buying home things just because they are on sale, I did my pre-shopping ahead of time. Then on the holidays, I will only keep my eyes on the items I already picked and try my luck. Don’t let the crowd and price tags make you crazy! What is your holiday shopping strategy?
There are two items I picked so far and hopefully there is a good discount on these sale items on the black Friday!
#1. Burberry Brit Quilted Down Jacket, original price $895, sale at $537 now. I found it in Neiman Marcus (item number # 5045355285226). It is true to size (S/P on me). Same style at a different color is available in Nordstrom.
# 2. Vince leather crewneck jacket, original price $995 (Neiman Marcus online), on sale at $597 now (NM in store, item number # 822508004485). Size xs was not available in my local store, but I found size s okay too.
Do you think they worth the price? Last year Neiman Marcus offered an extra 20% off plus $50 gift card, and people predicted that they might do the similar thing this year. If so, should I keep them?
The reason I like Burberry coats is that they normally last many many years. The one I wore today, an orange winter coat with raccoon fur trim, was bought in 2005. Seven years later, it is still one of my favorite coats, and doesn’t look out of fashion. I like bright color coats in winter time, but maybe just couple of them are sufficient for my closet.
