Stripes + Sequins

This top is new. It was on sale for $30 at Macy's and I had to buy it in order to get free shipping for something else.

I mean, honestly, spending $10 on shipping would just be crazy. And if you think about it, it's like it only cost me $20 because of the $10 I saved on shipping by purchasing it.

Duh! You simply cannot spend that much money on shipping when it basically could pay for half of a top! It is so darling!

Shea Sayers said...

Shipping is the worst--I always forget to consider it with my total and so I'm always disappointed when things cost way more than what I'd planned because of it! That shirt was a great buy though--the sequins make it a little more special!

christine said...

well of course you had to get it for free shipping!! Too cute to pass up.

Style Journey said...

Ha ha! I like your justification :) Super cute top and love it paired with the green. Heather

Cute! I always get sucked in to buying more to avoid shipping too but you got something very cute out of it!

That top is so cute! I love the way you styled it too, it looks really great with that shade of green!

Courtney Erin said...

I usually buy things to get free shipping as well...it's a deal, right? And this is such a cute top - I love it paired with that mint/sea foam cardigan.

I use hitting the free shipping mark as an excuse to buy things all the time. Glad I'm not the only one! That sweater was well worth it:)

Ali Hval said...

I like your logic, Lyddie. Rounding up to the free shipping mark is definitely something I try to do, too.

Your $20 top is lovely, though. And it's long sleeved, which is awesome, since long sleeve pretty tops can be so hard to find (or is it just me?).

Honestly that's their gimmick to make you buy more. And they get me everytime. I shop a lot at Macy's and can you believe I spend over $99 everytime.

Very cute shirt! I do the same thing all the time with online shopping. I get on meaning to buy one thing and then to get free shipping buy sooo much more.

What a wonderful way to sparkle in the winter.

Raquelita said...

That top is very fun! Paying for shipping drives me crazy, but I am forced to do it much more frequently now since I don't live in the lower 48.

I love stripes and sequins make everything better!

Yikes, can't believe Macy's charges that much for shipping. Almost everyone is free or reduced these days :P

You totally needed this shirt. It's like... ombre sequins!

Rebecca said...

It has cute sequins,, so it was totally worth the $20 (or even $30).

silvergirl said...

Ha, I totally get your logic and have used it myself
Love your shirt, it is similar to the Loft one I have and I have gotten tons of wear out of it

haha I love the shopping fee logic - works for me!

Lynne DeVenny said...

Lydia, see, that's totally logical. Why does my hubs never get that? lol

That top is pure sparkly joy. And a bargain :P

Emily {Her Philly} said...

I use that same justification ALL THE TIME :) $20 for that top sounds like a great deal to me. xx

Whoa, i love how the sparkles are scattered all around the top of the shirt, it gives it a lot of dimension and it looks so fun and pretty! (And it seems like it would be really wearable!) It looks gorgeous with the green as well!

Cee said...

I love reading about how other people rationalise their purchases - my thought process usually goes something along the lines of, "But it's probably the last one in my size and if I miss out then I'll regret it forever and it only costs..." You get the idea :) The top is awesome - I mean, sequins and stripes! Plus, it's like you saved an extra ten dollars. I was with you all the way ;)
xox,
Cee
