Strolling along in Chevy Chase this weekend, I came across some too-good-to-miss shopping opportunities.
First, you don't have to spend a lot of dough to look like a milllion. Metallics are hot for this season, but you can easily get the gilt thing going with the Gap's totes in bronze, sea glass and silver from $39.50 for a small to $54 for a large. Small zippered clutches go for about $20 to $25. Make your feet sparkle for cheap with t-strap sandals in bronze, silver and gold, which sell for $24.50. Meanwhile, talk about gems,
Gap salesperson Nina was truly one. She helped me find what I was looking for and led me to items that were on sale, no less.
Not quite as much of a deal, but if you've always wanted to own a Kate Spade bag, a stop at Loehmann's is a must. Pretty printed canvas totes with turquoise handles are on sale at Loehmann's for less than $200, depending on size. Maxx New York handbags are also substantially reduced from their regular retail prices as are styles from Furla, Kenneth Cole and Coach, including a particularly fetching one in powder blue. But if you absolutely, positively must have the style of this very moment, don't expect to find it here.
On the home front, Pottery Barn's striped beach towels, table linens and outdoor pillows looked so clean and crisp, I wanted to rush right in and buy some for a quick pick-me-up for my back yard. But, alas, my expedition was over for the day. Next time.
