Look for Less-Studded Boots

Hello loveleigh's!

Sorry it has been sooo long since I have posted. March was a crazy month. One of our cars was totaled (everyone is ok though!) so we have been looking for a new replacement car (coming soon!). Also, our Chachi had surgery to remove some lumps THEN decided to eat my hubby's nightguard which led to another trip to the vet. The lumps were benign (thank God!) but between the surgery, xrays for the nightguard and followup appts he was at the vet every week of March (and he HATES going to the vet....he poops as soon as we walk in because he gets so nervous).  Oh, and we also had more snow. In March. So, in all honesty, I didn't really do much shopping. In fact, I thought I was going to go the whole month (!!!!!!) and not buy anything but went shopping last Sat and was able to make a few small purchases (I spent a whopping $15) right before April :)

I had a coupon for a FREE full size VS Fantasies spray at Victoria's Secret. I don't normally wear these so in I went and sprayed, sniffed and smelled all of them. I'm really sensitive about fragrances and really all of them were a little too sweet smelling for my liking. (From VS I love Pink and the Love my Body Mists in White Tea & Sage and Jasmine & Water Lily.) Since it was free though, I decided on the new Lemon Escape which is a blend of lemon sugar and coconut. I figure it will make a fabulous air freshner even if I don't wear it! (Or maybe a blog giveaway?!) ;)

So, I have been trying to figure out since the fall if I like the whole laceup/combat boot trend. I think it can look cute with the right outfit but I just wasn't sure if it was for me. Lately though (just in time for Spring-ha!), I decided I wanted a pair to throw on with some skinny jeans and a simple t-shirt for a laid back casual look. I've looked a couple places for them but really didn't want to shell out a lot of $$. I found these on Saturday.

The weather was a little chilly last night so I wore them to church with my skinnies and a long sleeved t-shirt. You can wear these a variety of ways, but I prefer to fold the tops down and wear them like this.

These look almost exactly like the Steve Madden Tarnney Boots. Here's a pic of the black SM ones.

They also have these Kody Studded Combat boot at Target (which I don't like the looks of these as much, at least in this picture. The shape of them looks weird to me.)

3 very similar boots. 3 very different prices! 

They don't have the black ones on the Steve Madden website anymore, but they have brown ones and they are ON SALE for $104.98! The Target ones are full price for $39.99. Mine are from Kohl's (Brand=Candies) were on clearance for $17.....AND I had a 30% off I only paid around $12!!!

Even if I only get to wear them a couple of times now (but who knows with our weather..sheesh) I have a feeling come fall I will get quite a bit of use out of them!

I hope your enjoyed my "Look for Less"!

Have a loveleigh day everyone!!

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Hello loveleigh's!

I was browsing clearance at Target (shocker, I know) and came across these mirrors. (Excuse the photo - I took it in the car!)

Our bedding has a pattern similar to this so I thought these would be fun to hang on the wall in our bedroom. Currently our walls are chocolate but we are wanting to paint and go lighter-I think more of a gray. (We are also thinking of moving!) :) I also have a gray comforter that I bought at Target last year for really cheap ($17!) that this would look really fun with if we want to change out some things. I figure we could leave these as is or we could always paint the black frame parts gray or white if we want to lighten them up a bit.

These were normally $16.99 but were 70% off so they were $5.08!! I picked up 3 of them because I thought on a large empty wall 3 would be perfect!

Great Price!!

I Got a Dollar I Got a Dress

Hello loveleigh's and Happy Valentine's Day!!

If you know me, I'm not a super big fan of V-Day. I don't hate it or anything, I just honestly think it's overrated! I'm definitely NOT one of those girls who wants flowers and a big fancy dinner out. I do think hearts are cute (I've always been a fan) so I do have on a slightly festive outfit!

I don't shop at JCPenney much. I do get emails from them but usually just delete them. I got one yesterday that said something about $5 off. Sometimes $ off in emails can be good but most of the time it's get $ off after you spend a certain amount (Example $10 off $50 purchase). I'm not usually interested in those. All I really care about is the $ off ones where the $ off is the same amount as the minimum purchase! I've gotten a lot of things free (or had to pay very little) this way and today was no exception!

This email was for $5 of a minimum purchase of $5....however, it was only valid online. This also usually makes me uninterested because typically shipping is more than the actual item. However, I figured I'd check to see how much shipping was and found that you can ship to store for free! We have a JCP at the mall so it wouldn't be a big deal for me to pick it up in store. So, of course, I head right to the clearance section online to see if there was actually anything listed for $5. There was actually quite a bit in the Juniors clearance section starting at just $3!

I browsed through and came across this dress that was on clearance for $6.

They only had 1 size left and apparently I must have gotten the last one because right after I placed the order it says they are sold out! After putting in my $5 off code and having it shipped to the store for free my total with tax was $1.09!

Hopefully it will fit! (But if not it's not like I lost a lot of money!) ;)

Have a loveleigh Valentine's Day everyone!!

Hello loveleigh's!

I have been watching these robes for a while at Target. They came out around the holidays and I thought about asking for them for Christmas. However, I don't think asking for stuff from Target because it would kill me to have someone spend full price on something that I could get later for 70% less - ha!! :)

I already have a big, fluffy, long robe that I got for Christmas last year (it even has my name on it). It's so soft and's like wearing a blanket! It's perfect for the cold winter, but I also like having a shorter, lighter robe that I can throw on when it's warmer (or when I'm doing my hair...I get too hot in my big fluffy robe when I'm drying my hair!) so I this would be perfect! This one is short and does have the really soft sherpa lining in the hood and on the bottom of the sleeves, but the rest of it is just the soft, light terry material.


My hardest decision was trying to decide on a color...and not to buy 1 in each color (I have a really, really bad habit of doing this!) It comes in pink, gray, purple and turquoise. They didn't have the pink in my size so I decided on the gray since I thought it would go with the most. However, my willpower of only buying 1 may weaken next time I'm at Target! ha! (I mean c'mon, a robe for $6.58?) :)

For those of you who like to shop way ahead, these would make great Christmas gifts for 2013!!

Have a loveleigh day everyone!!

Loveleigh Leopard

Hello loveleigh's!

So I've decided to add to my ever-growing leopard shoe collection from Target. I figure I need a pair for each season (or this is the excuse I tell myself). Let's recap:

I already have these for "winter" (or fall...or early chilly spring days):

and these for "summer" (or late spring/early fall):

as well as these for "fall" (and warmer winter days and spring):

So of course I needed a pair for "spring"! (or to wear in fall and warmer, non-snowy winter days)

$8.98 (in store)

Okay, I think my leopard shoe collection is finally complete! (and I spent $30-$35 total!!) :)

Don't forget you can follow my blog (several options over to the right) or you can follow me on Instagram (User Name: loveleighshopaholicconfessions) for even more great deals/finds!! (or feel free to follow me on both!) :)

Have a loveleigh Friday everyone!

Seeing Sequin

Hello loveleigh's!

It has been quite a while since I've posted! Thought I'd share with you my recent finds at my favorite place......

A lot of the winter/holiday shoes are now on clearance (70% off) at Target so of course I'm taking full advantage!!

Here are a couple of pairs I snatched up:

$10.48 (in store)

$9.88 (in store)

I think sequin is a classic for Christmastime...I don't think it will ever really go out of style! (Now, I'm specifically referring to the element of sequin, not necessarily the item it is on!) I think there are definitely do's and don'ts to sequin and glitter, but if you do it right it's fun to wear! (though this skirt didn't end up working out..oh well!) I already wore the ankle boots to church with a dress and leggings! They are a more subtle sequin, while the gold pumps you could probably spot a mile away!! I'm not sure if I'll wear them anytime soon, but if anything, I'll save them for Christmas/Holiday parties for 2013!! They also had the pumps in black and pewter.

Have a loveleigh day everyone!
