Anne Taylor Loft Flash Sale
But then it occurred to me that when I did lose the weight, it would be perfectly okay to have the dress taken in. Genius!
Still I felt guilty about the purchase....but then I got a raise at work and asked D if it would be okay to get it to reward myself. Also genius.
And then I checked my email this afternoon at work and saw that I had an email from ATL saying 50% off everything in the store until 7 PM. This was the last sign I needed, I went there after work, fought my way into a dressing room (flash sales are a little nutty), though I briefly considered just stripping in the middle of the store to try it on if I couldn't get a dressing room. All the good sizes were sold out, but luckily there was a size 6 on the mannequin (vanity size much?) and they took it off for me, it was a perfect fit and I then was free to claw my way to the looooong line at the register with my spoils and 30 minutes to spare.
I probably could have made a killing on other stuff, but I tried to stay focused like a laser beam and just come in for the dress and then get out with my wallet in tact. It pays to sign up for store mailing lists I suppose!
