Jeremys Department Store: A True Tale of an $8 Zac Posen Dress.

 Happy New Year everyone! It's good to be back.

I started off my new year with a bang for my buck!

Yeah that's a Louboutin.

Laundry by Shelli Segal. A shimmering white cocktail dress $30.

Zac Posen!

Bought it!

This one is so pretty for $29.

Let me start by saying how incredible of a store Jeremys Department Store is. They have two locations, one in San Francisco and one in Berkely, Ca. After getting a tip from a fellow fashion friend of a jaw dropping 90% off designer sale items-sale, I knew I had to be there. I missed the first day of the sale, which meant that night I dreamt of shopping at this made up Jeremys store in my mind! I woke up and told my husband, who gave in and decided to treat me to a day of shopping in the city.

Jeremys Department Store truly ended up being quite a gem. It's just my kind of store too. I'm a big fan of Crossroads and discount, or consignment stores, and I also have A LOT of patience to shop through racks. They also have a huge selection of men's clothing. It's worth the hunt ladies and gents!

So I ended up trying quite a few articles of designer clothing, such as Laundry by Shelli Segal, and Zac Posen. Not to mention spotting a few classic black Louboutin pumps (for under $200!). I ended up with some luck, I was looking for a sparkly new years eve kind of dress (you know the kind that sparkles and glitters and screams look at me I'm a walking tinsel tree) for my birthday coming up in just a few days. And did I find it.

A Zac Posen "Shimmering Metallic Eve" cocktail dress nonetheless.
Sure it had a few frays, which you may notice in the pics, but nothing a little TLC can't fix. I'll post pictures of the dress fully restored this weekend as I wear it for my birthday party.

Jeremys price tag suggests it retailed at $625 (also saw it for sale on ebay stating that it's $2,400 and bidding starts at $416.) Jeremys originally priced it at $159, on top of that it was marked down to $80. Did I mention the 90% off sale factor? Drum roll please....which means that days sale price cost me merely $8. For my coffee addicts, that equals to two grande iced zebra mocha's, thank you.

Now if you don't mind I'm going to continue to drink my iced coffee drink and watch my bank account grow as I continue to find many more fashionable ways to save money this 2012!

If anyone plans a future trip to Jeremys, holler.
