Today, on my way to the neighbourhood HMV, I stopped by Anthropologie. After falling in love with about a half dozen full price items (mostly dresses, but also some blouses and jackets), all of which I was determined to not buy, I made my way to the sales section. There, in the dresses section, I spied one green dress, an old item (probably dating back a couple of months), that I had thought about buying when it first went on sale but had ultimately decided against doing so, thinking that I wouldn't really like it on me. It has a scoop neck and I don't really like scoop necks on me. This one green dress was in one of the two sizes that I usually try on and I thought that the price was right. So I tried it on. It fit and, after pondering the scoop neck issue for a bit, I decided that I should get the dress. Now, when I decided to the try the green dress on, I had thought that it cost $59.95. While standing in line to purchase the dress, I noticed that I had misread the price. The price tag actually read $89.95. All of a sudden, I started to get nervous about that scoop neck. I wasn't quite sure that I wanted to spend ninety bucks to start experimenting with my comfort level with scoop necks. Yet I felt like I had committed to buying the dress and now had to follow through. After a few more minutes of feeling nervous, a cash freed up. Imagine my surprise when the clerk scanned the barcode and it turned out that the dress had been marked down to $9.95! Wow! I remained composed on the outside, of course, but, inside, I was jumping and dancing and woo-hooing all over the store!
P.S. I wore this kaleidoscope of colour dress on Saturday. Someone remarked that I was the "picture of Summer". Thank you!
