This weekend was the Old Town Boutique District Warehouse Sale here in Alexandria. Local businesses come together and reduce their prices on stock up to 75% off and it certainly draws in massive crowds.
People were in line from 6:00 am to be first through the doors at 9:00 am. Thankfully, I was invited to shop crowd-free at 8:00 am with other bloggers and media. It was heavenly!
I had a budget of $50 and had to stick to it. However, I wasn’t worried, I had a feeling I’d find that perfect item — I either wanted a handbag or a smashing pair of shoes.
In the end, I walked out with a pair of burgundy Michael Kors Haya Zipper Pointed Flats from The Shoe Hive. However, it wasn’t that simple — they were slightly big. Not the worst problem to have, only a half size but it made me doubt if I should get them.
After circling the shoe table for a while, pondering and looking for “shoe enablers” I decided to make them mine and wear with inserts — after all they were only $50 (RIGHT on budget) down from $150 which made it harder to leave them behind and they were gorgeous!
These are my first pair of designer shoes in…oh, let’s think….ummmm….A VERY LONG TIME!
I personally like stripes with animal print, so on went the leopard scarf!
It’s a very simple look anyone can replicate with a cute pair of pointed flats — this blazer is at least five years old, and the t-shirt has been around for a while. The pointed flats may be from last season, but classic and clean looks never go out of style!

Scarf: Fraas // Jeans: H&M // T-shirt: Old Navy // Blazer: Uniqlo
