The Deal Catcher

Forever 21 Silk Tuxedo Shirt - XS
Ann Taylor Moody Jaguar Silk Skirt - 00P
Express Patent Leather Belt - S
Guess Bow-Tie Pumps - 5.5 (similar here)

I can't resist a good deal.  Remember when I mentioned that I fell victim to Ann Taylor's Friends & Family sale where you could stack a 30% coupon code on top of existing sale items?  Well, the skirt above is one of the lucky finds!  I can't even believe this skirt was originally $118.  After all the discounts, it was only $31.  Much more reasonable and I really love the pattern.  It's supposed to be a jaguar pattern but somehow to me it looks like small flowers...  ^_^

As far as shopping deals go, one of the best shopping deals of the year is right around the corner!  So far, the best deals I've heard of so far are for the outlets.  Here's some of the current promotions that have caught my attention:
  • Ann Taylor - 50% off the entire store
  • LOFT - 40% off the entire store
  • Gap - 60% off the entire store
  • Guess - 30% off the entire store until 12pm noon
  • J. Crew - 40% off clearance until 8am
All stores at my outlet are opening at midnight on Black Friday and some are even opening at 10pm!  My current plans are to hit up the outlets for the 10pm opening.  I will be tweeting my entire Black Friday experience, so please follow me if you aren't already!  I will let you know of any deals I find for sure!  ^_^

[EDIT]: By request, I'm adding a few of the promotions I've seen for regular stores too:
  • Express - 40% off entire store until noon, 30% after noon
  • Bebe - 20% off entire store
  • LOFT - 40% off entire store - online use code ENJOY, free shipping on $125+
  • Gap - $10 knit tops, scarves, hats, gloves; $20 sweaters 
  • Banana Republic - 40% off entire store until noon, 25% all weekend
I'll keep updating this post once I have more info!
