232: Aquazzura Beverly Hills Lace-Up Sandal Look For Less

Mac's Found it For Less: Aquazzura Beverly Hills Lace-Up Sandal

Olivia Palermo has been killing the game in her red Aquazzura Beverly Hills lace-up sandals. I love the way the red pops when paired up with denim and white. In searching for the shoes (read: looking for a way to spend my Just Fab credit), I came across the Cleora version. Steve Madden also makes a look for less version of the BH lace up. Unfortunately neither company offers colors other than cobalt and black but both colors look fantastic. Get yours before it's gone, I personally will be waiting for Just Fab to release a red pair *fingers crossed*.

231: Black Jumpsuit Overalls

Mac's Want it For Less: Black Jumpsuit Overalls

You can never go wrong with black and you can always make a new outfit with a one piece. Put the two together and you have closet gold. I have my eye on a few one pieces but I'll wait until one of them comes down to the $40 mark. I'm undecided as to which I should buy but number 2 and 4 (l to r) would be the best fits for work and play. If you were in the market for a black jumper or pair of overalls, which would you buy?

230: Leather Birkenstock Sandals Look For Less

Mac's Want it For Less: Leather Birkenstock Sandals

One of my best friends bought a pair of Birks in high school and I hated them. Several years later they are now making a comeback in cute styles (with straps) and boy am I eating my words. After trying on Zara's pair I have decided that they are a go for the summer. Although I was able to pull four fly reinvented Birks, my favorite look for less happened to be the most neutral one. Check below to see what I found for less.

Mac's Found it For Less: Birkenstock Leather Sandal

I usually love a statement shoe but this time around I plan to tone it down a bit by buying the Pierre Dumas Bork-20 in Tan. For $35 they are quite a steal so I can't wait until they arrive.

P.S. The moment those jeweled Zara sandals or those chained Sam Edelman sandals go below $40, they are mine!

229: Lacquer Boxes

Mac's Want For Less - Lacquer Box
I'm loving lacquer boxes right now. They can be used as storage in a variety of places and they are gorgeous. So far the least expensive one I found was West Elm's Lacquer Jewelry Box at $24.99. I'm interested in a larger box at a $20 price point; however, that's a great price for a lockable box that can be monogrammed. If you're in the market for one be sure to head over to West Elm before their sale is over.
