After my shopping experience on Saturday, I really think I could be a shopper for one of those get-a-designer-look-for-cheap shows. Let me explain...
I got an Ann Taylor Loft gift card for Christmas that I was waiting to use on something that I really wanted. So I've been looking on their website, browsing their new clothes, and I found it - a very cute red-with-white-polka-dots shirt. Well, Saturday, I went to our Ann Taylor Loft and got the LAST ONE they had in my size (apparently, this is a very popular shirt, and they've sold out pretty quickly - Megan, did you get this shirt, too?). I don't really have any shoes to wear with the shirt, but I was going to wait until it's actually warm enough to wear it to look for shoes. They did have this pair at Ann Taylor Loft, but who wants to spend $69 on a pair of shoes?
Well I went to Payless, just to see what they had, and there they were...almost the exact shoe at Ann Taylor Loft! For $17.99!! (They are more red in person than they look in this picture)
They only had one pair left in my size, so I snatched them up, plus got another pair that was already on sale for an extra half off (gotta love BOGO). Which means, I got 2 pairs of shoes for less than $30. I was pretty proud of myself. Even Grant, arguable one of the most "thrifty" husbands in all the land, couldn't deny the fact that this was a great deal.
Do I have shopping skills, or what?
