30 days of photos: Day 8

Day 8: A picture of something that makes you crazy excited

SAMPLE SALES!!!!  Aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!  This one is for Kate Spade.  It's only going on until the 18th, so be sure to check it out!  
Did I buy anything?  You bet your sweet bottom I did!  I bought another

I love me a good sample sale.  All the clothes and accessories.  The deeply discounted prices.  Having to fight other women to get the last pair of size 8 1/2 red patent leather stilettos.  Wonderful, just wonderful!

(No, I've never actually gotten into a fight with another woman over sale items, but I've seen it happen.  Women get catty over accessories.  No joke!)

Sample Sale Shopping Tips:
  • Take a group of your best girlfriends with you.  That way you can split up and shop for each other.  Discuss everyone's style preferences and sizes ahead of time. 
  • If you see it and you like it, grab it.  It won't be there when you go back for it later.
  • Keep all of the things that you want right next to you.  If you don't some other woman will claim it as hers.
  • Wear nice underwear.  You'll most likely be trying things on in a huge open dressing room with a billion other ladies.  You don't want to be the one wearing your laundry day undies...or none at all for that matter!
  • Make friends in the dressing room.  If you see another woman eying up something that you tried on and didn't like, pass it on to her.  She'll appreciate it and possibly trade you something that she didn't like but you do.  Score!
  • Breath and just have fun.  You'll have to wait in at least one long line and you'll  probably have to wait your turn for the mirror.  So make the best of it.  Talk to people, smile, and enjoy yourself!
