Happy Sunday readers! I’m sitting here with the coffee looking out over the deals and bargains for this week. Did you all clip the Pink Saver coupons today in the Sunday paper? Be sure to do that. Save yourself some $$ on household items like Tide, Crest and even Oil of Olay.
Recently, I’ve heard from several readers asking me where can they get a good career wardrobe for less. While its true, that today’s office has changed and things are a bit more casual, I’ve heard from many of you that you are still looking for good, affordable suits for job interviews. In these tough times, there is definitely still a need to dress to impress on interviews. I’ve heard from both men and women readers on this topic, and I have one good answer for both: Loehmann’s. I spent some time in the two Loehmann’s Los Angeles, CA stores lately and was amazed by the array of really fine items for work, business and casual dress. Right now, there are many famous maker suits on sale for women for under $99.00. If you can spend a bit more, there are many great choices for suits for under $200.00. For men, the prices are a bit higher, but still significant. I found an absolutely gorgeous John Bartlett suit for under $300.00. Many of the prices for men are 50% to 80% below department store prices. If you’re looking for a great interview look, this is the place.
Other bargains I spotted on the sales racks with my eagle eye for savings include: Longchamp handbags, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Michael Kors…and wait for it….Armani. Yes, they have Mr. Armani!
PS–I could’ve sworn I saw a Hollywood starlet shopping at Loehmanns’ Beverly Hills this weekend. She was incognito in huge designer shades, and clearly did not wish to be spotted outside of the environs of Rodeo Drive looking for some designer bargains. The times truly are changing.
