If you're a die-hard fashion obsessive like I am, you'll use pretty much any little excuse to shop, be it an upcoming soirée, a bad case of the Monday blues, or perhaps even a national holiday. Veterans Day sales are yet another reason to exercise our wallets, because who can pass up a good bargain? You don't have to yank my chain to take advantage of a good deal, that's for sure.
While perhaps not as popular as Memorial Day or Labor Day, which mark the beginning and end of summer dressing, respectively, Veterans Day sales are just as great, coming to us at the brink of fall when our wardrobes are thirsting for a little extra boost of flair. But with a plethora of discounts and deals out there, from giant department stores to small online e-tailers alike, it's easy to get overwhelmed. Fortunately, I've parsed through all the madness and come up with a list of 11 sales to help you get the best bang for your buck on your favorite wares.
Been eyeing a staple suede jacket for weeks? Longing for a pair of basic leather booties? You're in luck. Get ready to get your shop on, because these sales are way too good to pass up.
