>Shopping Finds – Boxing Day

>I hope everyone is still enjoying their holiday – only 3 more days until we get to countdown to the new year!

For us Canadians Boxing Day was just 2 days ago and it’s equivalent to Black Friday in the US. When I was younger I wouldn’t miss a boxing day and had to go to every mall with my friends just to buy items we didn’t need. It’s been about 2-3 years since I made plans to go shopping on the day because the sales just weren’t good enough to get out of bed for. This year they were! BCBG had 50% – 60% off the entire store and it was insane I couldn’t even breathe in there and if I had more patience I would have tried on clothes but stuck with accessories. The Gap was up to 60% off, Top Shop was super cheap and the line up for shoes was like an hour long. The Cross Decor and Design was up to 80% off and you wouldn’t believe what I got for what price. I’ll show you in a post tomorrow! My mindset for shopping was “great deals to take me into my Spring wardrobe”.

However, amongst all of the fun boxing day shopping I was incredibly peeved off by the sales associates at The Room at The Bay. I wasn’t trying anything on from The Room but was from The White Space and they were refusing to allow me to try on clothes in their fitting rooms because it’s only for customers who are purchasing from The Room – even though my friend wanted shoes from there. I felt embarrassed and inferior and waited until a room opened. The sales woman let me try on the clothing and I have never felt so bad trying on clothes, I left with a horrible taste in my mouth. You’re telling me that I can’t try on clothing that is all on the same floor and from the same store in a certain fitting room area? Talk about segregation.

Anyways, now to my finds!

I got this great hat, perfect for the colder days and great for the early Spring months! Only $27 after 50% off at BCBG. The scarf is from the Gap and only $13.97 after discount. It’s an easy way to add a pop of color to my outfits without going overboard.

I nabbed this ring from BCBG for only $14! I saw it for the first time on Jen from Her Waise Choice and had to have it.

Top Shop was a great place to find some deals, IF you can find your size. The top was only $25 and a great color addition to my wardrobe. The pants were $38 and unfortunately I bought the wrong size and have to return them today. I hope they have my size!

I purchased some more items from The Cross and Winners for my place and will show you tomorrow!

What amazing deals did you find during your Boxing Day spree?? Let me know!
