Brave the Cold in a Discounted Michael Kors Faux-Fur Hood Jacket

I shop on a budget and institute spending caps (always below retail) on many items I buy.  I still like designer stuff though.  For example, I am fond of Michael Kors apparel and accessories.  From the watches to the clothing, I want it all by MK.  And, I’ve been able to acquire a lot of Michael Kors items at much less than Michael Kors prices in discount department stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls as well as eBay.

I am signed up for Michael Kors emails because I like to be in the know on the brand.  Today’s email with the following image caught my attention.

Cute coat, right?  It can be yours for a whopping $325!  Or, you can get a similar, black one (also by Michael Kors) for under $100 in Marshalls.  I spotted the coats just yesterday in a local Marshalls for around $79.99.

I own a similar coat by Michael Kors.  I purchased it during the post Christmas 2010 shopping season for $39 in Marshalls!  Don’t you just love when the already reduced prices in Marshalls stores are lowered even more?

How I brave the cold in discounted Michael Kors duds.

Coat—MICHAEL Michael Kors via Marshalls ($39)
Bag—MICHAEL Michael Kors via eBay ($98)
Sunglasses—MICHAEL Michael Kors via Marshalls ($20)
Watch—MICHAEL Michael Kors via TJ Maxx ($129.99)

So, cold weather, bring it on.  I am ready for you!

    If you know how to look those stores can really save you a ton. Great finds and I must say they should be sporting you on the cover of their next news letter. Besides the long hair you totally rock MK's stuff.

    ugh….no! NO! NOOOOO! I am NOT ready for the cold yet…we're just now getting REAL FAll weather and after a month or so it is going to be COLD in Chicago! I love the red tag clearance at tjmaxx and marshalls. I will go through every rack from size 0 to 16 looking for misplaced items and items for my mom 🙂
