Recession Shopping

I can smell the spring here in Boston! This morning, I could see parts of the lawn. Which means, ladies -- it's time to start thinking about Dresses and open toe shoes! Dresses are so simple to throw on for work -- here are some of my favorites for spring/summer 09!

Also, since no one is actually buying these dresses at full price, most of them will be on sale at Saks within a month or so. Another tip, get to know a personal shopper at Saks (no charge for this service) -- or your local stores. My right hand lady is Phyllis at Saks, she knows my style and my size -- when items goes on sale she puts them aside, then gives me a call to come and try on all the goods. Roll your eyes if you want....but Phyllis pulled aside a Red Valentino dress for me, originally a $750 dress - which I bought for $115.00 -- and an open toe patent pair of Kate Spades for $45. Phyllis isn't messing around -- she loves her job and she is happy to bargain hunt for you :)

One last thing about the Mother Ship, Saks.
...part of Sak's mission statement is that each sales person should give you full service, one stop shopping, "personal shopper experience" -- so really you "should" be able to find any sales person to do this for you (*the above mentioned) -- however, this is like need to find someone you like and who understands your style.
