Does anyone else love the fashion segment where they show an outfit and share the savings for each piece or tell where you can duplicate it for 1/4 of the price? I think its fun when you can pull together an outfit for a bargain and plus have pieces that you will wear a lot. My math tends to think in what I have saved rather than what I've spent! So, here's my outfit for the day that includes some items I will wear again and again:Black earrings (regularly 24.99 - I usually don't like to spend much for earrings because I lose them too often) -- $3.99 at Ann Taylor (you know the fun sales where they are marked down, then you taken an extra mark down and then you have a fabulous coupon and then you have a birthday discount on top of it!); Dog Scarf - gift to Pantera that I now wear (special and priceless); My long sleeve black shade that I wear almost daily when its cold - on sale for $9. I have worn it with everything this cold winter.
Tan Ann Taylor Coat
Regular price: $188. I bought it for $37.08. It is really fun for the sale price. Its a classic I will wear a lot.
Red Gloves: Regular price: $14.99 (AT sale)= $4.99. They are the fun ones that go up to your elbow and you scrunch down. Black Boots: Bass buy one pair, get two pair free. Promise! It was an awesome sale and I have loved all three pair. So, all three pair = $109. Skinny Jeans from Banana Republic - they were 25% off. I love them and have been wearing them again and again so I think I'm getting my money's worth.
One guide dog = priceless.
Hope you had a great 3-day weekend. Back to work on Tuesday that seems like a Monday.
Kristine Carlson in her book Don't Sweat the Small Stuff for Women states: "Close your eyes and contemplate what you are feeling. Try dressing yourself intuitively, and express yourself each day by making sure your choice coincides with your mood." I do that each morning (don't have to close my eyes, however)!
