Frugal Friday: 1¢ Skirt Nordstrom Rack Review

June 10, 2016

Yes, you read that right! I paid exactly a penny for this skirt! So here we continue with the Frugal Friday series and thank you all so much for the great support and comments on my last post. If you didn’t get a chance to read it check it out here.

So as you know I am a bargain hunter. I love the challenge, it’s a rush for me to find everything.

So I have found some great designer pieces at Nordstrom Rack for low discounts, but I have never found anything in store for just 1 penny until now!

In Switzerland we don’t even have money this low of a denomination. The lowest would be about 5 cent, so that makes this even better for me.  nordstrom_rack_melrose_and_market_1_cent_skirt_frugal This skirt is seriously so cute and unique it has a worn leather look and feel with layered cuts in the front.

Paired this look with a bit of gold and snakeskin.

When I shop I like to take my time and touch every single item in the store. I go through every rack and boom this beauty USA made brand by Melrose and Market.

Review Info: Nordstrom Rack (in-store)

Complete Order: 1 item- $oo.01 

Delivery : N/A The clerk in the store was really funny she was shocked at my great savings.

Quality: 4.75/5 I like this skirt a lot, it doesnt have any stretch to it but still beautiful.

Style: 5/5 Different and cool!

Purchase Recommendation: Yes!

Should I do a (long) post on how to bargain shop? Have you ever found a deal so great?

    First of all I have to tell you that “Frugal Friday” is such brilliant concept. Second, I think you may just be the most frugal shopper on the planet and I am so glad you’re putting those pennies to use. God knows people never use them any more. BTW, I’m following you on IG now. Feel free to follow back and have a fabulous Sunday.

    Do teach me your ways! I consider myself great at bargain hunting, but you just killed my game, girl! Especially because this skirt is SO beautiful, sometimes items that cheap are ugly and unwanted. Anxious for your tips!
