Deals are a girl's best friend...

I love shopping. 

Specifically at Anthropologie. I could live there. Seriously. 

My wallet, however, does NOT love it. (I am cheap.)


Until last night....


My best friend, Aria, is getting married and she is so wonderful that she selected a beautiful dress from Anthro for us bridesmaids. It cost 228 bucks, which was fine by me. I will get  A LOT of use out of it. 

Then...

The clearance angels opened up their gates and shown some deal lovin' light down on me. The dress got marked down to $119 people!!!!!

I ended up getting ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN BUCK-A-ROOS BACK ON MY DEBIT CARD!!

I was ecstatic!

Now, the smart thing to would have been to save that money, however Antro is having their huge end of season sale right now. So what's a girl to do?

I went sweater shopping. 

And I ended up with this little lovely:


And another shirt and sweater that aren't online anymore. You guys would love them. Think vintagey. Think lace. Think adorable. 

In my mind it's like I got three shirts for free!

I love you Anthropologie. 

I love you. 

Come back and see me!
