Thrill of the Chase

I LOVE me a good deal-might be one of my favorite things in the entire world.  Maybe it’s from years spent as a buyer knowing what things actually cost, but I have a hard time shelling out full price for anything.  So in truth, every time I make a purchase, it becomes a little game to see how great of I deal I can find.  And most of the time, the thrill of the chase can almost be more fun than the catch.  But not this time.

The Rack (Nordstrom Rack, for those of you who aren’t on a nickname basis) has been a tried and true place for me to find  many incredible fashion steals and deals over the years.  But a few days ago, while stopping in to see what treasures they have in stock, I might have stumbled upon my best find yet.  I have a great little arsenal of Michael Kors watches that I have collected over the last couple of years, but have been on the hunt for a dressy gold one for quite a while now.  But alas, gold watches are so popular, it has been nearly impossible to find a good deal on one.  So, when I popped by the watch case (purely out of habit), I was shocked to see it, hiding in the back.  A lone gold watch, exactly the same as my silver one, but with BLING!!  Yes, BLING!!  And what could be more perfect for me than a shiny gold watch with bling?  Pretty sure nothing.

So behold, my new, gorgeous, $350 Michael Kors watch that I scored for $80 and some change.  AH-mazing!!!


The collection (from left to right):

Silver and Crystal Watch:  Michael Kors c/o ShopBop

Silver Watch:  Michael Kors c/o Macy’s

Gold and Rhinestone Watch (new): Michael Kors c/o Nordstrom Rack

Gold and Tortise Watch:  Michael Kors c/o Nordstrom Rack

Black Watch:  Michael Kors c/o Nordstrom Rack

And did I mention that the true purpose for my trip to the Rack was to return a pair of boots that I didn’t end up wearing this year?  So essentially, with the return, I scored this rocking arm candy for about $7.  Now I just need to figure out how I’m ever going to top that!   Let the chase begin!!
