Nothing like new clothes, especially when you spend less than expected.Every woman has her own flow to shopping that brings her peace. My shopping is split half online, half in real life, I like to go between efficiency & the overall experience. Having worked in retail settings most of my teenage and college years, I find zen shopping on weekdays when not many people are around. I want to be able to see everything, try on a size or two and not feel rushed or cramped by a heard of weekend women shoppers. My real life shopping spots tend to be a department store or two,every marketplace I can find, boutiques near & far and any outlet mall I come across.
Outdoor malls are gold mines to me, one stop for mad shopping. Tanger Outlets are my favorite, I spent my two junior & one senior years working for BCBG Max Azria & Joe’s Jeans in the mall in Mebane North Carolina. Two of my favorite retail jobs ever. Hence why I couldn’t have been more excited to be invited to the Atlantic City Tanger Outlets to shop, sip & exchange style stories with a handful of local bloggers and the Tanger fashion community at the always elegant Ruth’s Chris restaurant.
Style For Less By The Beach
After a brief introduction & cocktails, we all set out in search of steals & great style. When is the last time you have been to an outlet? Aside from working at one in college, my parents would my brother and I to the one at Rehoboth beach ever Fall for school shopping as children. As an adult, I balance my wardrobe budget by intentionally shopping for certain things during certain seasons and at specific stores. Your style & shopping strategy go hand in hand, for example – I’ve been looking for some cute slip on sandals and a denim dress for the office. What do you think was the first thing I set out to find on Thursday’s shopping trip?
Once an individual understands the relationship between their body, lifestyle & clothing their able to assess the best stores to shop for the pieces they really want. The Walk at Atlantic City Tanger is an amazing place to shop for office options, shoes, accessories & when your done take a stroll along the beach. During our shopping trip I was able to buy two solid color wrap dresses, a pair of slip on sandals, two denim shirt dresses a pair of sunglasses & gold hoops for all under 150. It’s amazing what you can do with a pouch full of coupons and some creativity.
3 Tips For An Ultimate Outlet Experience
- The more the merrier, make a day out of it; why not shop, sip and stroll during a random Tuesday with your favorites, no lines & lots of options for everyone.
- Make a mental or physical list prior of what you need from this trip; are you looking for shoes, work skirts, whatever you need know before you go, so you don’t start to just impulse buy.
- I know this sounds like common sense, but some of ya’ll don’t even think to look – utilize the coupons the center gives you – I was able to score an extra 20% off my shoe, earring & shades purchases, all items which were already on sale. Just by looking through the coupon pouch I was given. Save money on your stockpile Queens.
From Philly it’s less than 2 hours to an outlet mall full of fashion, make your move to stock up on maxi dresses, bodysuits, basic tees & boots for the Fall. We are in the final days of summer,get ya looks together ladies. I had so much fun Thursday evening, that I’m circling back around next weekend for a few pairs of booties before the Aldo shoe sale ends, maybe I’ll see you there?
