So Many Good Deals This Holiday Season!

I went Xmas shopping on Thursday night.  I know, very very last minutes.  But I guess I wasn't feeling too much holiday spirit this year and time just flew by.  But I was impressed by all the good deals the stores were having this year!  It's like they were giving stuff away.  I didn't have a chance to go into too many stores because I didn't get to the mall till like 8.  But I did go into Abercrombie for the first time in years.  I had read on Bloomberg that analysts were estimating a rise in Abercrombie stock prices because they put everything in their stores at 40% off this holiday season to increase volume.  This tactic sure worked for me!  I used to shop there a lot when I was in high school, and first few years in college.  Then I just grew out of it.  I still think a lot of their stuff is too young looking for me but I was able to get some basics for real cheap.  I also picked up some sweaters and thermals for my fiance.  I think everything I bought averages to like $20 a piece.  I'm especially loving these:

The Quinn long sleeve knit:

It's just a basic cotton tee.  Super soft though, I don't know what Abercrombie does to their material but I love how soft everything is there.  I also think the moose is really cute on the little pocket.  Love the contrast color stitching on the seams.  I've been wearing this ever since I got it and it's great!  They come in like 10 different colors so I definitely have to go back and get more. 

Also really like this Josey sweater:

Oh yes, more ruffles!  Hahaha.  It's actually got 3 layers of ruffles down the front, the middle layer is a fine mesh material.  There's no buttons at all so it just hangs open.  I was thinking that I could wear this to work also because the moose on is pretty inconspicuous.  It kind of blends in with the rest of the sweater.  The 2 little pockets on the sides are great too.  It's so soft too, and not itchy like some sweaters can be.

Anyway, I guess I'll have to keep Abercrombie on my radar for some casual luxury if I can snatch things like this for $20 or so.  I thought I merged over to Lululemon for casual wear, but hey I can get 5 things from Abercrombie for the price of one at Lulu.  I can do the math.  Hehe.

Oh yeah, while walking around the mall, I also wandered into a furniture store and ended up coming home with a patio set!  The whole store was 70% off, and I swear I could have bought half of the place.  But after the patio set, I couldn't fit anything into the car anymore!  Luckily I had my fiance's SUV and not my little 2 seater convertible roadster.  I took a pic of the set while I was at the store to send to him and see what he thought... and here's the pic.

So I ended up getting it for $199 and it looks perfect on my patio!  I'm glad I finally was able to find something for my patio and will be able to actually use that space.  I guess winter time is the perfect time to get outdoor furniture!
