For as long as I can remember, I have always been a huge shopper.  I’ve always wanted the latest and greatest things, but haven’t always had the budget to do so, which definitely turned me into the savvy-shopper I am today. I love finding good deals and always try super hard not to pay full price when I don’t have to.  When I first heard about Gordmans, I was super intrigued by their department store brands at stellar prices so I had to check them out.  One of my friends actually shops there quite often, so when I told her about a campaign I was doing with them she immediately offered to drive me so that she could come with.

What I love about Gordmans (besides their amazing prices) is that they have a large selection of women’s clothing – everything from shoes, handbags, denim, and more. As well as a home decor section and men’s and baby sections. Gordmans is literally a one-stop shop for the whole family, which I love because it makes it SO easy. Another thing, is they have a “Lowest Price Guarantee” program which means that if you find the product at a lower price somewhere else, Gordmans will match the competitors price PLUS give you a $5 Gordmans gift card.  When someone notifies them about a lower price somewhere else, their team will work to make sure that the price is lowered on that item moving forward so that other shoppers will get the best possible price as well. All you have to do, is show the competitors ad, website or receipt showing the lower price and voila the discounted price will automatically be honored.  Find out more about the program here.

When shopping at Gordmans, I found some amazing spring pieces and was able to create an entire look for under $50. This “Bad Hair Day” hat was one of the first items that caught my eye… I mean how adorable is it?!  It’s a velvet/suede material and was only $9.99!  I’ve seen hats like these at other competitors for $30 or more.  I also found this kimono I’ve been wanting for a while now for only $12.99 and a plain white tank for $6.99.  The kimono is the perfect lightweight material for spring and summer to throw over a dress or pair with jean shorts and the print is the cutest!  My favorite find were these white/rose gold sandals that were also $9.99… I almost bought them in black as well, but decided I’d probably wear the white a lot more, so I put them back. The crescent moon layered necklace was a last minute find, but I am so glad I spotted it on my way out. They have a big selection of jewelry and I found this rose gold one for $5.99!  I love buying inexpensive statement jewelry that I can throw on, so for $5.99 it was a no-brainer.

Total price: $45.95. I can’t wait to go back in for some workout gear, which is definitely next on my list!
