Cheap Thrills

I get a little thrill from deals. Okay, a big thrill. It's sort of an addiction. My blouse and skirt are both from the J. Crew Factory. The button down pinstripe shirt was $10 and the skirt came to $15. I love looking at the price on the receipt and feeling like I some how got a steal or in gambling terms "cheated the house." Yes, they are still making money off of me, but when you look at the retail price it does get your adrenaline pumping just a tad.

Neon and leopard are perhaps an unlikely pair, but I think it can work, which is why I paired my J. Crew bargains with my Claire Vivier Leopard clutch. Speaking of neon, I think there are certain colors that are just too much for the camera to handle. Maybe it's just my camera which isn't exactly state of the art, or maybe it's the neon pigment in this skirt, but it is very hard to photograph neon colors without feeling blinded. My father-in-law told me I could go hunting in this skirt. (As you can tell, both my husband and father-in-law like to make clever quips about my clothing.) Well, it was a great deal and I am, after all, a hunter of bargains! Perhaps I will wear this on my next bargain-hunting safari!
