i did a really pathetic thing this weekend and it all started with a christmas party. our friends had their annual party, complete with a bartender (in their house...very swanky), lots of good music, great friends, and usually someone irish line dancing at about 2 am (not me). needless to say, it's always a good time, and chris has been known to compete in a few dance offs over the years (he always wins).
this year was no different, it was a ton of fun. there was a woman there whom i had never met. all night i was admiring her gorgeous cape sweater. it was so pretty, and had a faux fur collar, and you all know i love me a faux fur collar. i finally asked her where she got it, hoping it was a recent purchase. she told me that she bought it a few years ago at Michael Kors in chicago, but that she had recently been to the outlet mall nearby and saw them for sale there.
being the obsessed woman that i am, i woke up on sunday morning and decided i needed to go to the outlet mall. it's 45 minutes away, so it wasn't necessarily convenient for me, but i hopped in the car and went anyways.
and it was a waste. a total waste. yes, the store had the sweater, and yes i adored it...but it was on sale at the outlet mall for $130, and it just wasn't $130 cute. so i found a cheaper version at another store and called it a day. the cheaper version didn't have a fur collar, but that's something i'm sure i can remedy with some more obsessive shopping.
tell me what you think....is this worth $130?
ps. happy 6th birthday to my baby girl. the sweetest 6th year old i know. i love you, eva bird!!
