I like me some affordable shoes, but better yet, I love getting my hands on discounted shoes even more. Why? Because nothing beats getting the look without the original price-tag. As a shoe blogger & keen deal hunter, I am *shocking* not solely on the prowl for shoes. I mean, a girl has to clothe the rest of her body too, right?
So when Dixie Outlet Mall reached out & asked me to put my deal hunting skills to the test with their “She Who Hunts Finds” challenge, I didn't hesitate to take them up on it! I mean fashion+shoe+outlet+toronto+shopping=no brainer in my books.
For those of you who don't know, Dixie Mall is–yes you got it!–an outlet mall offering savvy shoppers a slew of brand name fashion, shoes & accessories at great prices. Located in Toronto (well, Mississauga, Ontario if we're gonna get technical here), I often passed the mall while on a Toronto-to-Oakville commute to/from my former shoe design job, eyeing it greedily, but sadly never having a chance to pop in & take a look. Which, in retrospect, is rather nonsensical. I mean, come on, a Nine West Shoe Studio?! A Winners outlet (if you don't know how much I love Winners, I do. A LOT!) and Danier Leather? Not to mention a slew of denim-based retailers such as the Levi's Outlet & GUESS Factory Store. How could I pass that up? Well, this time around folks, that's not gonna happen.
Which brings me back to my point: the deal hunter challenge. Along with a handful of other GTA bloggers, I've been put to the task of outfit-hunting at Dixie Outlet Mall with a $200 gift certificate in tow (c/o) to see how much moolah we can save. And no, I'm not allowed to spend it all on shoes (although you can image the field day I'm going to have with a plethora of discount shoes at the shoe outlets! Maybe I can wear a pair as earrings? Hmm.). Kidding aside, I'm sure that with my built-in savings radar, I can put together an outfit that fits my persona style AND still have enough change left over for an over-the-top sundae from Baskin Robbins.
Will my predictions be true? Well, come on back & check in on me as I rummage through the Dixie retail jungle in search of the perfect outfit to fashionably complement its fabulous savings. Oh, and there's ultimately something in it for you as well 😉 Stay tuned….
