Yesterday after working (cleaning a tanning salon about a half hour from my house) for 6 hours I took my nasty, dusty, sweaty self out shopping. I have previously made known my love of thrifting, and more particularly my love of the store Savers. This town happened to have a Savers that was BIGGER and BETTER and NEWER than "my" Savers, so I went to check it out.
Oh my gracious, happy, happy, gloriously joyful day.
After making my way through the rest of the store, I found myself in the dress section (strangely I am getting better at girly stuff. It has taken me 18+ years, but I am finally working up to the point of being able to handle dresses. But only on rare occasions, so don't get too excited...). A vibrant blue caught my eye. I liked the color. I like the pockets. And it was so short *in my opinion it is a long shirt* that I wouldn't ever imagine wearing it without pants *YESS!!!* under it.
I look at the price tag.
Then the original tag, still attached, caught my eye. "I wonder how much of a deal I am actually getting."
Well, let me tell you, it was a big one. Like a $1282.51 dollar deal.
Yes. You read that correctly. The original tag read $1,290.
Not twelve dollars and ninety cents.I kid you not; ONE THOUSAND, TWO HUNDRED AND NINETY.
Whatttttt...????? Who on earth pays that for a dress (only like 3/4 of a dress!) ? And WHYYYYY??? I could pay for almost a whole missions trip (this year is $1900 for Costa Rica) with that money!!!!
I googled the tag and couldn't find the brand. But...tags don't lie. Usually. So unless it was a freak misprint and the decimal point went missing, I am going with what it says. It says $1290. I just like to type it out. Shocks me every time.
So, if you disapproved of my love of Savers before, maybe I've changed your mind. Maybe not.
Whuteva. I have a pricey blue dress and I got it for way less than the person who bought it in the first place. That certainly made my day!
Now I just have to wear the thing...
