Hit Winners all last week and scored great stuff, they marked down the clearance section,
I went to two location: Stittsville and Bayshore Mall, needless to say that i’ve found more bargains at Bayshore.
I was looking to try a certain style, which is duster coats and cardigans , sweater maxi dresses and shirt dresses, and interestingly i’ve found a lot of pieces at Winners to create this look.
First thing caught my eyes is this Esprit Oversized Coat/Cardigan, came down to 30$ Retails for 135$
And then i found this French Connection Sweater Dress for 34$ down for 100$
And i finally decided to buy this Tahari Duster Cardigan, i was going to buy it before Christmas for 50$ but decided to wait, and i’m happy to did that because i scored it for 16$ only
Finally, this Massimo Dutti Tshirt Dress was mine for only 12$
As for Footwear, there was a small selection in both locations, but managed to find those two shoes
ZCD Montreal Leather Flats, 11$ retails for around 150$
And those Plaid Sperry for 20$ retails for 60$

When it was opened last year, i thought like wow, we r gonna shop designers items with a fraction of the price, finally in Ottawa. Well, it’s not really what’s happening. Low quality, old stock, and definetly very high prices. As an outlet in the last days in season sale, i would expect, prices go very low but no, the same prices since before Christmas although they r still have a lot of stock. Today, i went to take a look, i started with the shoes section as it somehow the best deal there, couldn’t find anything impressive but took in my size. Here is some shoes that i liked.
Joie Slip on, i like it but it looks used 52$.
Vince Sandals 99$.
Vince Camuto Platform 33$.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Loffer 72$.
Philip Lim Sandals 119$.
There was a stand with some clearence bags, but don’t bother check them out, the bags were either so old and ugly or with visible defects and the price tag doesn’t refelected their condition at all.
As for the clothes, there was a lot of Theory, Rag and Bone, Vince, Tahari,… and all the other contemporary brands but with very unattractive prices.
“From a needle to a rocket” this is how we, egyptian, describe a store where you an find almost anything you need, which is any dollar store. I like how all the essentials are in the same place whithout being too overwhelming at the same time, this and the good prices of course. In Ottawa, we have The dollar store and Dollarama as the main dollar store chain, although the dollar store is way cheaper, the quality and brands in Dollarama us way better. The toys section, for example is amazing, i always find 3 and 4$ licensed toys that worth 20$ as retail price; also, the beauty products shelves carry a lot of nice brands hair of and skin care products, the trick is to shop smartley: comparing the prices with the other retailers as Walmart and Giant Tiger help u to know what to buy and what not to. Here’s what i got in the last trip to the both shops.
Minions Mega Blocks 4$ each, not less than 15$ elsewhere; Life magazine Audrey Hepburn issue and People the 70’s issue 3$ each; and Crocs knee high socks 4$, all from Dollarama.
Long sleeves cotton shirts, 1.25$ each from The dollar store.
The last couple of years, i used to enjoy Black Friday and Boxing Day relaxing on the couch, snacking on unhealthy food, watching tv and shopping online. I know that i miss better deals in stores but couldn’t tolerate the craziness in the mall. As for this year, i thought that i need to face my fears and to go grab those deals 🤗🤗🤗. Well, i regret it!!
I hit Tangers, Winners and Bayshore Mall but what i’ve scored doesn’t worse getting out in the cold and minding the craziness. The deals weren’t the best, actually the discount was much less than the regular seasonal sale, here is what i’ve bought:
BCBGMaxazaria Harem Pant, House of Harlow Booties and a Sterling Silver Earrings
Winners, 16$ (Retail price 40$)
Winners, 10$ (Retail Price 150$)
Saks off Fifth Avenue, 34$ (Retail Price 210$)
Found them all in the Clearence Departement, so obviously the boxing day discount wasn’t applied. As for Zara, Aritzia, Gap and the other fast fashion shops, i like to wait a couple of weeks as the prices tend to be better at the end of sale.
