Real talk…I have big thighs. Despite being a runner all my life, they’re still pretty sizeable. Most of the time I am proud of them because they’re strong and I can squeeze the life out of someone if I really wanted, but shopping for skinny cargo pants is definitely a time I get sad about my thighs. The stitching and extra pockets of cargos usually makes my thighs look bigger, but I am totally feeling this Banana Republic pair right here. They have the perfect amount of stretch and I love the skinny-ness (is that a word?) at the ankle. I ordered them online knowing they could be a major disappointment, but they turned out to be a great buy.
Now on to the ‘Name Brands for Less’ portion of this post…did you see these adorable Nine West heels with lasercut hearts?
Too cute, right? They retail for $49.99, but I got them for $18.14! I used Amazon Warehouse Deals to get that great price, and I highly recommend it for any budget shopper. With Amazon Warehouse Deals you are getting pre-owned and open box merchandise that can’t be resold at full price.
When using Amazon Warehouse Deals, I find it better to browse instead of search for a specific item. For example, if I was looking for some new work heels, I would select the following categories: Clothing, Shoes, and Jewelry->Women->Shoes->Pumps->8.5 which narrows it down to 8 pages of heels in great brands such as Badgley Mischka, Jessica Simpson, and Betsey Johnson. That’s how I found the Nine West shoes.
If you’re worried about the condition of an item on Amazon Warehouse Deals, click the ‘See All Buying Options’ button to get further details.
Under ‘Condition’ it will say whether the item has just been tried on or seems to have been worn a few times.
The condition of mine was listed as ‘Used- Very Good’, which meant that they had been tried on but never worn. I was very pleased with the condition of them when they arrived, and I didn’t notice any defects whatsoever.
I have been browsing the boots section to get ready for fall and made another purchase today. I can’t wait to share it with you when it arrives!
Does anyone else have experience with Amazon Warehouse Deals?
