Deal of the Century.
I'm not usually one to write about crazy deals and sales I've encountered because honestly they just don't happen to me that often, but this one is like, just crazy to the point that I'm still not sure if it even happened. I just have to share!
Today may have been the most successful shopping day in Liz history.
I went to Buffalo Exchange this morning and received $55 store credit, which yielded $11 panama hat (it's real! Made in Ecuador!), a linen mustard skirt for $16 and $15 change left over!
When I was heading home form work I found $12 on the ground, but that chance of fate was spoiled because I realized I left my keys at work as I was walking up my door step. I went all the way back to work and decided to eff it and go into Manhattan. I already wasted an hour of my life on the train, so I felt the need to do something productive - something productive like shopping.
Now let me say that I had no intention of buying anything, but the fates aligned and smiled upon me today because I found a pair of Braided Sky High Swedish Hasbeens and lace up Worishofers for $9.99 EACH. EACH!! I think my eyes popped out of my head when the cashier was ringing me up. I really thought someone would notice and be like, "Hey! That's crazy! Put those back!" but no such thing occurred. And now, they're mine.
Do you have any amazing shopping or thrifting stories? My friend Jodi once got a pair of Hasbeen Jodhpur boots for $50 and I want to hear more shopping miracle stories like that!
