This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own.

October feels like it is somehow flying by… but I also feel like “is it seriously still October?” Thank god it is still October, because Woodfield Mall is still celebrating and allowing you to shop for a cause. For a $10 donation to Komen’s fight against breast cancer, you recieve a discount card that gives you 15 or 25% off participating stores. So you donate, do some shopping, then save hundreds of dollars on deals. Treat yo’ self, and do the world good. A win-win.

Caitlin from Sophisticaition and I headed up to Woodfield Mall this weekend, and we had ourselves a day. First of all, there were so many stores participating in this discount program, like Coach and Vera Bradley. I love these types of offers, because it gives me a great excuse to get a nice, new bag. Orrrrr it’s perfect for Christmas shopping, because Christmas is, like, two months away. WHAT.

Ok, let’s dive into two of my favorite deals from Coach and Vera Bradley.

Coach has a new line with Selena Gomez, and I love the bags. We were talking to a store associate, who was SO nice, and she was telling us about all of the best sellers. She said that the Selena Grace bag was uber popular. The red was out of stock, it was so popular, and that the oxblood and black bag was super popular too. She was also telling us that mothers and daughters have been coming in and getting matching purses. Which may sound like “come on how old are we?” but these bags are so sophisticated, and come in 3 different colors… so, long story short, you and your mom should totally go and get these bags. (cc: my own mom… I know you read these posts)

You can shop the line here: Coach X Selena Gomez

You can shop the Selena Grace bag here: Selena Grace

Plus, Coach is 25% off with the discount card (no exclusions apply), so you can save hundreds of dollars. It’s an excuse that we all need to buy a new bag!

Next, we ventured over to Vera Bradley to see what type of deals they had. Vera Bradley is also 25% off, no exclusions apply. I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not a huge Vera Bradley fan… BUT then we walked into the store and I was checking out their leather bags. They are so nice. The leather backpacks initially drew me in. Those are great bags for people who have to commute from the ‘burbs to the city for work. Carrying a bag on one shoulder can get tiring and sometimes just annoying. The leather backpacks are the perfect girly, yet reasonable bag.

You can shop the Gallatin Cargo Backpack here: Gallatin Cargo

You can shop the rest of their backpacks here: Vera Bradley Backpacks

While you still can, head out to Woodfield mall to shop, support and save! It ends October 31st. Happy shopping!
