If you haven’t heard of Macy’s Backstage, do yourself {and your wallet} a favor and get familiar!

Last week I had the chance to check out a location and it did not disappoint. Backstage is Macy’s off-price outlet store. So think of it as a typical Macy’s, but a bit smaller and even more affordable.

With Christmas just one week away, I found a ton of goodies and hopefully these will inspire you if you need some last minute gifts. Oh, and everything I scored was less than  $50!

As I went shopping this weekend, I noticed a common theme: stores are already playing holiday music! It really made me snap back to reality and get a move on with my shopping. I never, ever know what to buy anyone for the holiday.
And that’s where’s Pop-Up Holiday Boutique really comes in handy. With fashion and beauty goods on hand, you’ll have no problem finding something for everyone in your life. Though I love giving stylish gifts, determining sizing is always tricky. But with items like scarves, gloves, tech accessories and purses, they’re one size fits all.
