H-O-M-E-C-O-M-I-N-G, It's Homecoming Ya'll!! It's that time of year here in Greensboro where the Greatest Homecoming on Earth takes over the city. As a graduate of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (I earned my Master's in Adult Education from NCAT) I've kicked off homecoming for the past five years or so with the NC A&T Gospel Concert. I have a full day of meetings at work today and there was no way I would have time to go home, eat dinner, change clothes, and make it back to NCAT in time for the show, so I had to pull together a Work 2 Weekend look. 

Baby Phat Pumps - Macy's 20.92 

It never fails, every year I try and change my homecoming attire at the last minute! I plan months in advance, but for some reason I end up with the rest of the masses looking for the perfect party dress for the A-List Party. I ventured into Belk's looking for some inspiration and remembered that Macy's was having their One Day Sale. Everyone knows that I'm a Belk's shopper but my friend Rhonda swears by Macy's. She happened to be shopping with her husband so I met up with them to see what the hype was all about. 

First of all, Macy's stays open late during their One Day Sale. The location I went to was open until 11 pm! I was already excited (especially since it was already 8:30 pm). Rhonda and I did some catching up over jewelry and shoes and she left me with a 20% off coupon. After about an hour in the store, looking for another party dress I decided on just these Baby Phat Pumps, originally priced 49.00 and 50% off. With the 20% coupon that Rhonda gifted me, I purchased a Macy's Gift Card (since I'm not an account holder and refuse to open up another credit account) got this shoe for only 20.92!!! You know I was excited. While I may not be as committed to Macy's as Rhonda (yet) she has definitely made me a believer in the "deep discounts" during the Macy's One Day Sale.

  1. Love the blue! I NEVER go to Macy's. I'm a Dillard's girl! But, I may have to check them out!

    1. Thanks!! I use to love Dillard's additional 50% off sale, but since I started thrift shopping I don't shop there often. There's a Dillard's clearance outlet at Oak Hollow Mall in High Point, NC. I was in there for almost 2 hours yesterday (still on the hunt for a new party dress).

  2. I LOVE colbalt blue! it's my fav color for fall, winter, and spring! lol

  3. SUPER cute! LOVE the Goodwill blazer.
