Hide the Charge Card!
With the economy being the way that it is, I have really tried to save more than I spend (remember the new year's resolutions?!). Then again, I am related to my grandmother which means I cannot pass up a good deal.
This cute pink sweater is really similar to anther Lilly sweater I have that I wear all the time over dresses and tops. So with that in mind, I knew this piece would get a lot of us. Retail was $188.00 and I got it for $59.99.
Oh but of course I couldn't stop there! I tried on a pair of Lilly black pants that were extremely comfortable when I realized I don't own any black pants! Every girl needs a pair of black pants, right?! Retail was $198.00 and I got it for $63.19.
As I was swiping my card, I was kidding with the sales people (of course they know me by name, and I am sure they think "cha ching" every time I walk in). I said when I couldn't eat this week because of this purchase I was blaming them. The cute lady from Romania responded, "we didn't have Ramen in Romania so we would eat ketchup when we spent our food money on clothes." After being severely grossed out I said, "I would eat Ramen noodles so that I could shop more, but then I wouldn't be able to fit in my clothes!!" This statement is so true. I don't know how college kids live off of all that sodium!
I can't wait to see what the Lilly Rue La La sale has! Hope yall are finding some amazing deals too!
