My friend Megan came over to watch the first half of the Texas game tonight and we got to talking about how we are avoiding those J. Crew, et al, email sales in our inboxes. I usually used to go check it out and see if there's anything I had to have (and almost all of the time, it didn't result in a purchase), but lately I've just been deleting them - why be tempted? It's a delicate balance of not buying things you don't truly need and getting a fantastic deal on something you don't truly need (you do, after all, have lots of clothes in your closet already) but would definitely use. Megan had just bought a jacket at Ann Taylor Loft, and it's now on sale and they're having an additional 30% off as well (Megan, I don't see 40%), so she's going tomorrow to get a price adjustment (good girl). Tempted, I went online to check it out.
This corduroy skirt would be $14 after the 30% off
I have actually been wanting a khaki skirt like this ever since I constantly borrowed a sorority sister's Gap khaki skirt back during senior year. Since this was 4 years ago, I think it's safe to say that this would be no impulse buy. Luckily, they don't have my size (although invariably I'd probably buy the wrong size anyway), and corduroy's not my first choice.
This satin clutch would be $14 after the discount as well. I already have a few holiday-festive clutches, so this is definitely not a keeper, but I just wanted to post the pretty picture of it. I'm really liking this shade of pink with a cute LBD.
This embossed croco handheld is now $21 down from $49. Don't need it at all, but I think it's cute.
