Sequin Sweater? 2 b Rych (?), Winners
Plaid shirt? Winners
Boots? Modern Vintage, Winners
'Tis my favourite time of year. And it has nothing to do Valentine's Day... though I've always had a soft spot for sparkly hearts and chocolate induced stomach pangs... But even better then over priced red roses, are the end of the winter sales. Since this blog started, I have changed my shopping habits a bit. Mostly because I thrift so much, I find it harder to spend on new clothes unless I am getting a great deal. And right now, hidden behind racks of new spring merchandise and heavily decorated with red tags, lie some good treasures.
Especially Winners is a happy place to be. Shopping at Winners is an exact science to me and this is the time of year where things get interesting. Like throwing mentos in Diet Coke interesting... It's getting to the end of the season and the prices are good but Winners and I go way back and I know there is still a red tag or two to be added. I am currently taking chances on some heavily reduced designer shoes... they have multiple size 10s and with that buffer, I wait (though I was unwilling to play the Winner's Game of Chance with this sweater) for more red tags... Don't worry, I keep it normal. I would never press my nose to the store windows, watching the Winner's employees with their pricing guns, going up and down the aisles doing the further reductions. I just follow closely behind, breathing over their shoulders...
And if you are in the handful (I have big hands) of people taking on 30 for 30... I apologize for pointing out that February is the best shopping month. But I give you an extra high five for committing to the challenge and not shopping through out. Don't worry, I am doing your share of economic stimulation for you this month. I shoulder great responsibilty every day.
