Shopping for Girls

Yesterday was very chilly in the morning so I wore a big heavy sweater to work. My coworker saw me and said, "Do you know it't going to be 80 degrees today?" I said "no" and thought, uh oh, I need to go shopping! I like to make a game of shopping for cheap outfits so I was totally up for the challenge. So, on my way to class, I swung by Big K for a quick shopping trip. I wandered through the clothes racks and then headed over to the sales rack wondering if I'd get lucky. I glanced through the clothes and grabbed this blouse. It's business-like and although it has long sleeves, I knew it would be cooler than my sweater. Do you like it? It's got a herringbone design to it and it's made of stretchy material. Actually, it's kind of wrinkled in the photo because I wore it all day long. Oh, and there are three buttons on the cuffs. I just rolled the sleeves up and only buttoned one back down. Guess how much it cost me?This shirt was cheaper than I usually pay for my lunch and I'm really cheap! It only cost $2.99!! What a bargain, marked down from 19.99. I love a good buy, don't you? AND, the whole shopping trip took less than 10 minutes. I wasn't even late for my class even though I ran to the bathroom and changed first!

Excellent buy!!! Well done! I love a great find too. My favorite is our local Salvation Army. I find amazing work clothes with the original TAGS still on them! I love the shirt you found and the price was just right!

I got some great deals at wal-mart here. I got a bunch of t-shirts for 3$ each. I love a good deal.

That worked out well. I'm really bad about shopping for clothes. I rarely take the time to try anything on unless it's shoes. On the other hand, I've gotten pretty good at being able to size something up and just know whether it would fit or not. I got really brave when I ordered jeans through a catalog. Even though I ordered all in the same size, some were slightly too big and some were slightly too small and some fit just right. Jeans can be cut in so many different ways. Shirts are a safer bet for the grab-and-buy approach.

You shop like a man -- and I mean that as a compliment.

Good for you! I hate paying full price for anything, too. That shirt looks nice but comfy.
