BCBG Max Azria Bellini

Ahh, there are few things I enjoy in life more than a good deal. Even better is when you're not even looking and it just jumps out at you. While out of town, I got to shop at Off 5th. While we have Saks Fifth Avenue where I live, I've never shopped at Off 5th so I was eager to look around. As I expected, you can find some good deals if you're willing to look around. (They had a Rebecca Minkoff bag I was pretty much dying for at a really nice price, but not in the color I wanted. Sad.) I did manage to find a little treasure in the shoe department (shocker):

Pictures were taken with my Blackberry, so I apologize.
Anyway, these are the BCBG Max Azria Bellini in Frosted Grey. I think they originally retailed for close to $200, but they were almost half off that, plus there was a sale with another 20% off, and I could have gotten more off if I'd opened a Saks account. I love BCBG and I love even more than you can almost always get a good deal on it. I've seen the brand sold at TJ Maxx, the BCBG Max Azria store has sales with up to 70% off, it's sold on Bluefly, etc, etc. I love me some BCBG and think it's great quality, even better so when you can get it for a steal. I have a lot of their shoes and knit pieces and have worn a lot of it for years. These shoes were still probably a little expensive for some, but I wear flats a lot, and have worn BCBG shoes before and know that I'll get a lot of wear out of them and they'll last me so for me I know it was a good buy. And despite having a TON of flats, I don't think I have any gray ones so, hey, even better :)

If you want to buy these online, Overstock has an almost equally good deal on them.

What are your tips and tricks for finding a good deal? What's the last item you bought and were excited about? Share in the comments! :)

Lovely shoes, and even better since you go them cheap.

My best find was a Proenza Schouler skirt that originally retailed at $1350 that I found at Buffalo Exchange for $17.50. Seriously.

If you like deals, I've got a flat iron giveaway going on right now. You can't get a better deal than free!
