My managers all chipped in this Christmas and gave me a $150 gift card to one of my favorite places.
I immediately thought I would save it for spring/summer merchandise.
I actually tucked it away and forget all about it until yesterday when the January catalog arrived in the mail.
Damn you mailman....preying on my weakness!!!
In about 5 minutes...I was in love.
The Sweeping Ruffles Shirt for $98.
I went online to look at it some more and saw that there is free shipping on orders of $150 or more.
Since the shirt is $98, I knew I would have to push it over the mark and get the free shipping.
So yesterday and today I have been trolling around their site off and on trying to find something else I want, need or simply must have.
The more I looked, the more I started to question if I really wanted to spend 2/3 of my giftcard on a white button up shirt.
Will I wear it?
Can I come up with an outfit for it instantly? (One of my self measures when shopping - if I can't immediately think of something I would wear with an item I try to resist the purchase)
But then I saw this:
The Silk Taffeta Ruffle Wrap Dress on sale for $99 with the extra 20% off final sale.
A cool $80?
I took a closer look...
Only available in chocolate in size 4...but would look great with gold strappy heels and a tan...my sister and Angela will be having summer baby showers...2 occasions off the top of my head I can think of...
Now you are in my shopping bag.
Then I came across this:
The Wool Ruffle Shift on sale for $79.99 then an extra 20%.
Hmmm...timeless...classic in black...2 baby showers...oh and the older of my two brothers got engaged this past week, so maybe an engagement party?
Not a lot of hemming and hawing and I dumped that one in my shopping cart as well.
Too bad I was $6 short to hit the free shipping.
What's a girl to do?
Why, she adds a basic staple to that shopping cart:
The 5" Destroyed Chino in white for only $14.99 then that glorious 20%.
My whole giftcard was used and then I added a miniscule $5.97 of my own dough.
Not too shabby, eh?
I feel great that I got 3 fab dresses (sweet lord, please let them fit right!) that I know will be with me for quite some time...
And if they don't fit, I will surely be crying about that in just under a weeks time!!
