Last Sunday, I visited Macy’s Washington Square with the intention of embarking on a bargain hunting expedition. My primary objective was to discover fashionable styles that would complement my appearance while adhering to a budgetary constraint.


To commence my shopping endeavor, I made my way to the clearance section and proceeded to select items that caught my eye, disregarding their price tags. My initial choices consisted of two pairs of bottoms: a pair of white jeans and a pair of blue jeans. These selections are well-suited for the upcoming fall season and can be effortlessly paired with various tops.

When perusing through the vast array of options, I tend to gravitate towards colors that captivate my attention. On this particular occasion, a charming fuchsia Calvin Klein knit crop top immediately seized my interest. Additionally, I acquired a light neon peach orange knit short sleeve top, a light bright orange colored tied bow sleeveless satin top, and a simple black short sleeve knit bodysuit. I envision wearing the fuchsia crop top with the white jeans for casual outings such as dessert hunting or a day at an amusement park. As for the two orange tops, they lend themselves well to professional settings, such as the workplace or an art museum visit.

Oversized tops play a significant role in my daily attire, and I couldn’t resist the allure of a classic white shirt. Typically, I opt for women’s sizes extra small or small, but for casual shirts, I prefer a slightly oversized fit. Consequently, I selected a medium-sized white shirt, which effortlessly complemented the relaxed blue jeans. This ensemble is ideal for activities such as strolling through the city, going on dates, or attending fashion interviews.

In order to diversify my wardrobe and cater to different occasions, I also procured a couple of one-piece garments. Given my penchant for solid colors, both dresses I chose were black. The first dress boasts puff sleeves and a waist cut A-line silhouette, accentuating the body in all the right places and exuding a lively and youthful aura. This particular dress is perfect for brunch dates with girlfriends or social gatherings. The second dress, featuring a V-neckline and a slit, is crafted from satin fabric and beautifully accentuates feminine curves. I envision wearing this dress for a romantic date night, complemented by a bold red lip and cascading wavy hair, creating an elegant and sophisticated look.

Upon trying on all the selected pieces, I proceeded to examine their price tags, which pleasantly surprised me. The total price range of the items fell between $18.73 and $46.66, with five out of the seven styles falling within the $18 to $19 price range. Amongst the seven ensembles, my personal favorite is the combination of the white shirt and blue jeans. This timeless and comfortable pairing perfectly aligns with my sartorial preferences.


In conclusion, my bargain hunting excursion at Macy’s Washington Square proved to be a delightful experience. The assistance provided by their stylists and customer service personnel was invaluable, and the store offers a wide array of quality brands and affordable choices. I eagerly anticipate future deals and clearance items, eagerly anticipating the treasures I may uncover during my next visit.
