After Christmas Spirit

Today, I am linking up with Sharon over at The Tiny Heart and Tara at The Penniless Socialite for their weekly "Look What I Got" Round-Up where everyone shares their latest steals.  I consider everything I'm wearing here a steal with the exception of my handbag, but everything is old except for this new sweater.
  Sweater: Banana Republic (buy in wine)
Jeans: J Brand Coated Martini (old/via Nordstrom Rack) (Buy)
  Purse: Rebecca Minkoff Amour Satchel (gift from my husband)

Shoes: Christian Louboutin (old/via Neiman Marcus Last Call)
Right after Christmas, my sister came in from our hometown to visit me for a few weeks and we immediately hit the mall to see if we could find anything at the After-Christmas sales.  I found this red cashmere sweater in the sale racks at Banana Republic.  The sweater actually has a rounded neck with a detachable cowl and I love it.  It is part of their wool/cashmere blend collection and it was originally $89.50, marked down to $54.99 and the day we went,  all sale was marked down by 40%, so I brought it home with me for $32.99.  I see that it is still available online for $54.99 in the ivory color, but I think if you go to the stores, you can always get a better deal.
My sister found a couple of great sweaters as well and I will wait to post up what she wore to visit the Posters of Paris exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art yesterday.  We tried to attend the Gallery Talk, but it was so crowded and we kept getting stepped on by people with walking chairs that we finally dropped out and just wandered around the exhibit by ourselves.  Also, I am refusing to give up on my new lens, but none of us have mastered it yet, so not all photos are very flattering. Sorry!

Have you found any wonderful deals lately? Link up! It's fun to share our spoils with each other.
