When I say that I’m crazy about sales, I mean that I’m CRAZY about sales. This teal skirt is a perfect example of my insanity. I spotted it on the Banana Republic website and wanted it desperately. However, I wasn’t even close to willing to pay the full price tag. I proceeded to forget about it until a few weeks later when I spotted in on the clearance page. The only issue was they there was only one size left, and it was much, much too large for me. Undeterred, I bought it anyway.
I then spent the next 3-4 weeks desperately searching for a tailor who wouldn’t charge an arm and a leg to alter the piece. When I was younger and living at my parents’ place, there was a lovely tailor across the street (where he literally knew me by name because I went so often), who would alter pretty much anything I asked for $10. Not the case here. In the end, I physically drove the skirt to my parents’ house, dropped it off at that wonderful tailor’s, left it for a week, and then drove back to pick it up. Needless to say, I didn’t save any money in the long run. But I still, to this day, tell people what a great deal this skirt was. I’ve definitely got some kind of sale brain washing stuff going on!
