Michael Kors for $2.00?!

What a Girl Wants

Yep, you heard correctly: you can score these Michael Kors shoes for just $2.00.  Or, how about this Chanel purse, or these Ann Taylor pumps…all just $2.00 each!  So how does one score such amazing deals, you ask?  The answer is What a Girl Wants, an event taking place in Burlington, Ontario on August 16th, 2015.  Here, you’ll find thousands of new and upscale repeat clothing items  for the entire family, including shoes, purses, jewelry, and more!  Simply purchase your tickets online here for $21.00, show up on August 16th with a reusable bag in hand (you’ll probably need a large one!), and pay only $2.00 for each item (cash only)!  You’ll want to show up right when the sale starts: bright and early at 8:00 am, and you can browse some of the items in advance of the sale on the What a Girl Wants Facebook page.

And, what makes this sale even more exciting, is that all of the proceeds support Habitat for Humanity Halton.  Last year, this event raised $10,000.00 for the cause!

Even if you’re not able to attend the sale, now is a great time to clean out that closet of yours and donate!  What a Girl Wants is currently accepting men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, shoes, purses, jewelry and accessories, and all items must be in excellent condition, and from a smoke-free home.  Have some items you’d like to donate? Check out the What a Girl Wants website for contact information.

Not able to attend but curious to know more?  Yours truly (that’s me!) will be attending the event and, of course, blogging about all the amazing finds to be had!

This event is truly one where fashion meets philanthropy; where you and your girlfriends can get together, haven fun, and make a difference.  I hope to see you there (be sure to stop by and say hi if you see me!).

“She Who Hunts Finds”: Blogger Challenge at Dixie Outlet Mall

She Who Hunts Finds

In case the name of my blog doesn’t give it away, I live for the “find”: that feeling you get when you score a pair of shoes for a fraction of the regular retail price, or when you spot from afar the red “sale” sticker on a dress, and instantly your pace picks up (it counts as cardio, ladies).  Luckily, there’s a place for people like me and my fellow deal-hunters: Dixie Outlet Mall.

Located in Mississauga, Ontario (along the Queen Elizabeth Highway), Dixie Outlet Mall is one of Canada’s largest enclosed outlet shopping centers, with over 130 stores.  Some of my personal favourites?  Winners, Nine West Shoe Studio, Danier Leather, Levi’s Outlet and Aldo Outlet.

I’ve frequented Dixie Outlet Mall for as long as I can remember, always ensuring no good #DixieDeals go un-hunted.  So, when I was contacted to participate in their “She Who Hunts Finds” challenge, I knew it was a match made in shopping-heaven (I also started counting down the sleeps, Christmas-style).

What’s the challenge you ask?  With a $200.00 Dixie Outlet Mall gift card in hand, purchase a fabulous Spring outfit and save as much money off the full retail price as possible.

Keep an eye out for my posts (blog, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) in the coming weeks to read all about my shopping experience at Dixie Outlet Mall, see my final outfit reveal, and enter for your chance to win your own $200.00 gift card! Don’t forget to follow Dixie Outlet Mall, too! (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest)

Let the hunt begin…

 

WhatDidSheFind Gift Guide: Day Three

Holiday Guift Guide Day 3

Love is pretty much synonymous with the holiday season, and what better time to “give someone your heart”?  What I love about this heart pendant however, is that it’s not your typical…it’s anatomical!  A sterling silver (3/4″) pendant on a 16″ box chain, this necklace is perfect for the person in your life who loves the unique and different (even if that is yourself).  Even better? You’ll be showing the love for local talent: this beauty was handcrafted in Toronto, Ontario.

You can purchase this “”Zippan-Anatomical Heart” necklace from Cards and Presents (I’ve mentioned them before in this post), for only $50.00.  And, if you order before November 30th, (using the coupon code: CANSHIP), you’ll also receive free shipping Canada-wide.  Be sure to check out some of their other fun products while you’re there (I’m in love with pretty much everything), as well as their own holiday gift guide.
