I’ve always been a bargain hunter. I’ve grown up a bankers daughter and was taught to save at a very young age. Finding a good deal makes me feel so good inside. When I first moved to Memphis I couldn’t believe there were no outlet stores to shop at. Eight years later the Tanger Outlets are within 45 minutes from me and have some of my favorite stores.
The Spring TangerStyle period started on March 8th and goes till April 15th in which the stores will be showcasing their latest trends and style. I was lucky enough to attend their VIP Party to kick things off. I got to enjoy bubbly (sparkling water that is!), snacks and cupcakes while shopping with my other blogger friends.
There was a little competition during the evening. We were given a $150 gift card to put together an outfit using pieces from any store of our choice. We then hung them up and a few Tanger staff members voted on the winner. I’m competitive so I made sure to find shoes, jewelry and a bag for my outfit. Sadly to say I didn’t even make it in the top three!! So sad, but the other outfits were great also.
I wanted to share details on my outfit that was under $150 from head to toe (I did use a few 25% off coupons to help me stay within the budget!
jacket | H&M ‘Faux Suede Biker Jacket’
shirt | White House Black Market
pants | Maurices ‘Cinch Bottom Joggers’
shoes | Express
necklaces | Express
earrings | Express ‘Large Tube Hoop Earrings’
bag | Anne Taylor Factory
I forgot to mention I won a Converse gift card too!
When figuring out what to wear to the event I opted for a relaxed look. I knew I’d be walking around the mall so I needed shoes I could walk in and a jacket because it was chilly out. I also wanted to feel stylish, it was a fashion blogger event after all! I opted for booties, maternity jeans, a fringe sweater and I tossed on my black coat. I chose to wear green booties because it matched the greenery in my bag!
Live votre rêve!
