Look at this cute blazer from the Gap. Adorable. And I love blazers - plus, I needed a navy one. I spotted it in the store about a month ago and was a little shocked at it's price tag of $98.
Gap, who do you think you are? Banana Republic? J. Crew? I was expecting something more like $60. Not that I would pay $60, but when it went on sale it would be decent.
So I waited. Since I have a Gap credit card, I sometimes get coupons, and occasionally get my $10 rewards, but you aren't allowed to use a coupon and a reward in the same transaction (who knows why) so this 25% off went in the trash.
Then last weekend I noticed a 25% off clearance sign, so went in to check it out.
I found a freshly reduced price tag! The extra 25% would make it $45, and with this discount I could actually use my reward, so that made it a respectable $35.
It's always a toss up for me, do I buy something when it first goes on sale and there are still lots of sizes, or do I wait it out, until it gets to the really low closeout price, and chance that my size will still be there?
Some times I wait, sometimes I just want it enough not to take a chance.
Have you ever heard that saying "If you didn't want it at full price, you don't need it when it's on sale?"
I don't believe that for a second! I'm always waiting for my right price.
Do you wait for a good sale, or do you just buy it because you love it, no matter what the cost?
I also picked up the braided leather belt I'm wearing, which had been reduced to $12, and today is the third day I've worn it since I got it!
Today's look was really based off of the blazer. That was the only piece I knew I was going to wear, and then I decided on the striped skirt, but was stuck on what color cammi to wear. I tried mustard, I tried red, then I thought light blue would be perfect! But I don't have a light blue cammi. Neither does my sister - I looked! So I went for more stripes!
It still amazes me how I went from hating (horizontal) stripes to all out loving them, and now my closet is filled with them!
