Deals and Steals for the Weekend

Filed under: Deals and Steals — Twistie @ 8:30 am

knotdress-teal I might not choose it for a casual walk on the beach, but the Forget Me Knot Dress by Igigi is a knockout no matter where you think you might wear it. The neckline is demure, but not so much so as to render a vee neckline pointless, and the cut is designed to flatter multiple shapes. This is one of those rare pieces I can actually see going from the office to an evening out, so long as the evening isn’t about clubbing. It’s fully lined and can be hand washed in cold or dry cleaned, at your discretion. Originally $118.00, it’s now just $94.50.

Of course, woman does not live by dresses alone. She also needs jewelry. In honor of June, Amazon has a sale right now on all pearl jewelry. The savings go up to 70%. What am I liking? These earrings:

Pearl and Citrine Earrings These pretties are made of white freshwater cultured pearls mounted on 14k gold plated sterling silver findings and accented with citrine and peridot. Originally priced at just $46.00, they’ve been reduced to a mere $24.50. To make the deal even better, they qualify for free Super Saver shipping. Not bad at all!

Probably the best purse I’ve ever owned was a Nine West. It was bright red leather on a cross-body strap with zipped inner pockets that I began to think I would need a jackhammer to destroy. I carried it for nearly a decade. Alas, all good things come to an end and eventually, so did my Nine West purse.

9West Red Purse The Onvacay Tote resembles my old war horse only in that it’s a red leather Nine West purse, but it’s one that would serve its owner well. Carry it by the handhold or use the removable shoulder strap at your discretion. Either way, you won’t regret it.

Originally priced at $215.00, it’s been marked down to just $159.99. But wait! There’s more! Order now, and get a further 30% off at checkout.


  1. Wow, I love that dress.
