How To Save Money With Some Favorite Brands
Are you a fan of saving money on things? OK, that was an unfair question. I certainly am, especially on brands that I know and love. Almost every retailer has a factory outlet or discount version now so let’s look at how to save money with favorite brands.
I would be remiss to not thank you for your kind comments yesterday. To be honest, I am sort of dreading Thursday morning when I won’t get to join you in the comment section. Let’s see how long I last at this smaller schedule.
Cindy and I are back today for our monthly Style Edit Over 50, and this month, we’re sharing some great finds we’ve made at factory outlets and stores.
I started my hunt at the Banana Republic Factory because I love their classic shapes and quality. For a very limited time, BR Factory is giving an extra 15% off their great discounted prices, no code needed.
I fell hard for the fabrication of this sweater last fall and bought it in several colors. (Dressing Room Diary Try-On Session at Banana Republic
When it disappeared from the Banana Republic site, I was sorry I hadn’t bought a few more. Surprise, I found them at the BR Factory store. They come in 11 colors, sizes regular and petite XXS-XL. I am wearing a regular small. They also have the crew neck option in 15 colors here. I also bought the granite blue, but haven’t worn it yet.
I don’t know if these sweaters are made for the factory store, nor do I care because the fabric blend is identical and the quality is as fabulous as the ones I bought at 3 times the price last fall.
These slim-fitting Chino’s are another great find from BR Factory. I was worried about the rise because the description said mid-rise, but they have a highrise on me and I have a long torso… so go figure. They come in regular, petite, and tall, sizes 0-20, in 5 great colors. I’m wearing “dream” in 6 regular which matches my sweater perfectly for a column of color.
I also bought this classic cotton shirt that comes in 3 colors, sizes regular and petite. I could not resist this orchid petal color which is so plentiful this season. I’m wearing a regular medium to keep it roomy, but you could size it down for a fitted look. Honestly, it’s hard to beat this 100% cotton classic shirt for $32.99. I’m wearing it with my Talbots slim white jeggings and Cole Haan white sneakers.
I also bought the forever sweater in camp pink which makes me smile every time I wear it. Same white jeans as above which have now sadly gone through a load of laundry that contained a brand new navy shirt, and they’re toast. I’ve pretreated them, laundered them several times, and bleached them twice. Oh well, I was really over wearing skinny jeans for now.
Now that I know how lovely the quality is at BR Factory, I’ve ordered a few more things, like this 100% cotton polo sweater. We are planning to go on a cruise this summer and I will need some cotton sweaters. This straw camera crossbody is also a nice summer option for a structured shape with a lighter appeal than leather.

The Nordstrom Rack is full of great pieces but you have to hit it just right. If you go looking for something very specific, you may not find it so be sure to search the categories first.

J. Crew Factory can be hit and miss but I always find their shirts and jeans to be great quality.
The Coach Outlet has always got some amazing deals so if you’re in the need of a handbag, wallet, or tote, they are worth a look. Their new “denim crop” is 50% off retail and really good looking!
