And then do you feel even more ridiculous when the store you pop into happens to be the same place where your 14 yr old neighbor shops? That was my day. But the joke's on someone else, because I walked away with two great finds for only $15!
First, I switched out the boring white button-up with this sheer chiffon blouse:
|Buy it here,|
The top was originally $39.50 but it was on sale for $10. Wait....the story gets better. When I walked into the store, the 16 yr old asked if she could help me find something ("like, your daughter?") and then she told me if I try on any pair of jeans, I get a $10 coupon to use today. Just for trying them on? Sounds like a deal! I'm getting a free blouse today!
Well, the deal is that you have to spend $25 first, which means you have to actually look around the store like a customer, rather than just quickly picking up a fun little underpinning you saw in the window.
So then I found this dress:
|Buy it here|
So there you have it - a little summer top to wear with white or dark jeans and a Saved-By-The-Bell-nightclub dress all for $15.
PS - I did try on the jeans and they were fine. Not what I was shopping for, but I know where to find it next time. Should there be a next time.
PSS - The cashier offered the woman in line before me (yes, she was a woman shopping without a child) a frequent shopper discount card. Something to do with punches or something. She didn't offer it to me. Is it because she doesn't think I'm going to come back and try on jeans for an extra discount again???
