GABE'S: Unbelievable!

CALLING ALL FASHIONISTAS: There's a new fashion hub in town, and their prices are UNBELIEVABLE!  If you've been following the blog, you may remember about 9 months ago I randomly discovered Gabe's, a new discount store featuring designer and famous brands for a fraction of the price (blog post HERE).  Anyway, this weekend they're having an amazing Designer Sunglasses Event that I figured I'd check out, so I dropped by early Friday morning to get a glimpse of what they had to offer.
Immediately upon entering the store, I was greeted by their staff, who were setup and ready with tables of designer eye wear, and well versed and knowledgeable on all the featured brands and pricing.  Designers included: Kate Spade NY, Michael Kors, Swarovski, Chloe, Salvatore Ferragamo and many more.

At first glance, I was immediately drawn to the Kate Spade NY aviators with pink accents, but decided to shift my attention to something more versatile and spotted a pair of tortoise shell Michael Kors.  And then . . . . . OMG, these Chloe frames!  They are absolutely amazing.  Perfect size frame, nude in color, and embellished stone accents.  These and virtually all of the other fabulous designer sunglasses were priced $100 and below, and there's a great selection, both for men and women.

After visiting their eye wear selection (note: the designer sunglasses are limited to this weekend only) I ventured into the women's department in hopes of finding some stylish transitional pieces since fall is literally right around the corner.  While I enjoy the spring and summer months, fall brings about something new and refreshing, and the opportunity to layer and put those styling tips to the test!  It didn't take me very long to spot a few key pieces to add to my wardrobe, one being this navy knee length coat that can be paired with virtually anything.  From jeans to skirts, pants to work trousers, you can't go wrong with this coat.  And if that isn't enough, you will not believe the price . . . . . only $14.99.  Yes, you read it correct, only $14.99.  I literally put together a combination of outfits for just under $50!

top: $7.99 | skirt: $5.99

coat: $14.99 | top: $7.99 | pant: $9.99

dress: $14.99 | coat: $14.99

Because I had my daughter with me, of course, we had to venture to the juniors department, which is huge by the way, to explore some fashion finds for her.  One of the things I've come to love about this store is that both she and I can shop at the same time, and it doesn't kill my pocket.  Needless to say, she scored a few items as well, and will be super stylish heading back to school on Monday to start 7th grade.  Check out some of her selections!


Betsey Johnson is her absolute favorite brand! 

Stay tuned as I share in the coming weeks one of the looks I decided on, and look out for pics of how I styled it.  And if you're looking for a Gabe's location in your area, click HERE.  Gabes in Charlotte, NC is located at 8101-C University City Blvd, Charlotte NC 28213.  Locations in the surrounding area include Gastonia NC located at 197 S New Hope Rd.
