I love a good discount store. My mom is the QUEEN of discount shopping and let me tell you, she passed all of those savings genes right on to me! So when Saks Off 5th reached out to invite me to the grand opening of their new Brooklyn store in Sunset Park, I didn’t hesitate to check out the new store!
The moment I walked in I knew this was going to be one of MANY times in this store. The decor, the open space and the vibe was SO awesome. I am super familiar with the Saks Off 5th stores in Manhattan, this one in Brooklyn is a fantastic size and the selection was so good. The store is set in a renovated warehouse really close to the D, N & R train.
The amazing folks at Saks Off 5th gave me a gift card to go shopping and I had a really hard time choosing what to buy–so much good stuff! The aisles are really wide open and the neon signage adds a super playful look. It encourages the buyer to have fun while shopping, which is what I am all about.
The first place I gravitated towards was the shoes section. All of the shoes were divided by size which is great because it makes it super easy to see what is available in your size versus wasting time on trying to find your size in a style that you like. Plus the boxes are open so you know exactly what you are getting!
I saw these Coach sneakers and fell in love immediately. They were decently priced and felt great! Since my wardrobe has toned down a lot, these are perfect for everyday use!

(I got the laces!)
Next I went over to the clearance aisle because I was pretty sure I’d find some awesome summer deals just in time for my trip to the caribbean in a few weeks! I was totally right. I found a pair of shorts, a skirt, a maxi dress and a halter top all for under $100!
Next I went over to the sunglasses section. There were so many cute styles, I kind of wanted all of them. Obviously, I need a great pair for Jamaica right?! So I got one too 🙂 The store has over 1500 pairs of sunglasses to choose from, how could I not?
The jewelry section had me weak! So many cute pieces but I got a classic pair of round gold hoops that will go with every outfit plus it looks great on the beach too! (Are you seeing a theme here?!)
Then, something amazing happened. I stumbled upon my obsession. Alex and Ani Bracelets. I resisted the urge to purchase all of them and chose my sign’s charm in a beautiful gold shade. YES.
Next I realized that I have a ton of BIG gorgeous bags but I’m not going to want to carry that all around Jamaica–I like to be hands free on my vacations! The amazing sales associate helped me find a really cute over the shoulder purse that carries my camera, my phone and some pocket change. Perfection!
