If you’re a subscriber to any number of online retailer’s email distribution lists you probably receive a good quantity of communications daily, weekly or monthly depending on your notification settings. On the approach of a holiday my inbox overflows with copious amounts of email from Kohl’s, Nordstrom Rack, Zulily, JC Penney, Old Navy, Beyond the Rack, Victoria’s Secret, Urbanog, DSW, Macy’s and so on and so on.

With such enticing subject lines like: “Get a Big Bang for Your Buck”, “Up to 80% off”, “Up to 50% Off Everything”, “3-Day Weekender! Designer Blowout”, “Hot Deal”, I mean seriously who could resist? Even though I’m not really in the market for anything new I enjoy way too much “monitor” shopping the internet’s version of window shopping.

For today’s post I thought I’d just pick out a few things from one store to give you an idea of the available savings. Just picking out apparel gives me enough of a rush, I feel like I’m actually shopping for myself – it’s so cathartic!!


The 7 total selections I found are from Old Navy. They are running a 50% off sale on everything beginning today until Sunday, July 6. I chose 1 dress, 1 skirt, 1 pair of shorts, 2 tops, 1 pair of sandals and 1 handbag.

A couple of things to keep in mind if you have never subscribed to Old Navy you will receive a welcome offer just for signing up. I can’t remember what the offer was when I signed on a while back but I’m sure it was a coupon of some sort. Free shipping on orders over $50 is the second incentive.

Women’s Fit & Flare Ponte-Tank Dress $20 – Fit & flare dresses always made me feel so feminine and the ponte knit fabric gives this one a refined yet easy look. You’ll want to sashay in the effortless styling of this flirty little number. The price range on the dress varies from $9.97 to $29.00 depending on the color selection. For the one I’m featuring it comes in either navy or black.

Women’s Jersey-Terry Drawstring Pencil Skirt $22 – A classic grey color makes this comfortable skirt so easy and versatile. With an elasticized waistband and drawstring it could be paired with a sweatshirt, tank top, tee or with one of the sleeveless tops in today’s post.

Women’s Twill Shorts $20 – Like the fit & flare dress the price range on these shorts is $20 to $24 depending on the color. Searching for a flattering, classic, crisp look in shorts? Look no further. In the $20 range there are 5 colors to choose from.

Women’s Shoulder-Tie Sleeveless Top $10 – The feature that caught my eye on this top was the drawstrings at the shoulders which can cinched for adjustable styling. Other characteristics are the V-neck, soft, lightweight poplin crepe and the periwinkle blue color that make this a deliciously breezy top. Price ranges from $10 – $12 and there are 5 colors to choose.

Women’s Sleeveless Tie-Top Shirt $7.97 – Tie-front hem on this sheer cotton sleeveless top gives it a stylish flair. The top comes in white, lime and red/white stripes and would look great with the twill shorts and the pencil skirt.

Women’s Textured Fold-Over Clutch $15 – North Beach Neon is Old Navy’s name of the bright coral color of the clutch. The faux leather on this clutch looks so soft and supple and the color is out of this world. The bag has a zipper closure and magnetic tab for fold over styling. It comes in coral and black with gold detailing.

Women’s Gladiator Wedge Sandals $27 – Jazz up your outfit with these 2 inch wedge gladiators. The color is listed as brown but they look more like a tan to me. Four shoelace woven straps across top of foot and ankle strap ensure a secure fit.

“Buying something on sale is a very special feeling. In fact, the less I pay for something, the more it is worth to me. I have a dress that I paid so little for that I am afraid to wear it. I could spill something on it, and then how would I replace it for that amount of money?” ~Rita Rudner
