According to me,
Outlets are my favorite. I always spend way too much money when I go, but I always end up with awesome stuff.
My best purchase was definitely my leopard loafers. I'm so obsessed with them and so so glad that I bought them. I was really nervous because flats are normally not comfortable at all for me, but these surprisingly are.
I also got a gorgeous cardigan/sweatshirt/blazer from Tommy Hilfiger. Not sure exactly what you would call it, but it's definitely super versatile.
Go visit your local outlet mall and shop till you drop. Just because the clothes are a little bit out of season doesn't mean you can't find trendy pieces!!
