There I am, posing like a fool because I had just tripped over my own foot, but also wearing my pretty new dress. It's a thick jersey cotton, so it's soft but won't get stretched out when I sit on the train. The seams that are supposed to hit the waist ACTUALLY hit my waist this time, and it's my trusty narrow silhouette in a cool color. Perfect.
It was already on sale when Hubsey and I got to Banana, though I don't remember that price anymore. Maybe somewhere around $45. Clearance items were an additional 30% off that weekend (surprise!), AND we marched in with a $25-off coupon. When it was all said and done, the dress was $4.99. Later, I peeled off the sale sticker and looked at the original price: $130.
If my math is correct (and that's always a pretty big if), then I paid just under 4% of the original price. And this is my new personal best. Like an Olympian, it's my new number to beat.
What's the best deal you've gotten lately? Do you think Olympic shopping would be cool? I'd watch it.
