Entering the store…Outfit one… Outfit two… Outfit three…
Happy Friday, everyone! I’m looking forward to an amazing weekend. What about you? I’m just really excited to share with you this collaboration with Macy’s Backstage. It was perfect because if you have been following for a while then you know I buy almost everything at Macy’s.
They contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I would wear a couple of items from their store. I knew I would be in the Tri-State area for several weeks, so I decided I would rather shop in the actual store for the full expeiernce. I was very familiar with the store in White Plains because I grew up shopping at the Galleria Mall. The Backstage store is on the basement level of the Macy’s store, but it also has it’s own entrance.
My initial thought was it would be like many other stores I had visited, but I was wrong. Macy’s Backstage is so much more than a bargain store. I found casual and formal clothing for the entire family, swim suits and cover-ups, shoes, housewares, furniture, home decor, accessories, handbags, and much more. They even had pre-owned handbags and premium brands such as Gucci, Fendi, Tory Burch, and more. There was a clearance rack where I found a skirt for $4.96. Even in the clothing and shoe section, there are premium brands there.
My son would love the fact that they had a ‘Juice Bar’ where you could charge your electronic devices. I love the fact that I bought seven pieces of clothing and a pair of shoes and spend $124.92! One of those included the black and striped Michael Kors cropped shirt. I’m a sale and coupon shopper, but the prices were so low, I could see a coupon wouldn’t be necessary.
I also like the fact I can use my Macy’s card and earn and use Plenti points when I shop. They accept returns if you need to bring back something you bought.
The stores are only located in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania right now, but they will be adding more stores. This is the only downside for me. I wish I had access to shopping at Macy’s Backstage all the time and not just when I’m in New York. If you are in these states, you owe it to yourself to visit Macy’s Backstage. I was able to make several outfits from what I bought. You can see that in the pictures above. I added some of my own items for a little more modesty, but with not being at home, I was a limited in what I could use. I did use a skirt extender under the crop top and my body dress under the blue shirt. Oh, and the shoes…those are what I bought the other day when I was out and about with my sister. Don’t ya just love them?
