Bargain Believer

Skirt= $3.  My excitement at finding such a bargain= priceless!

I don't believe in divine intervention but I do believe in bargains.  Shoes, dresses, jewellery, handbags...you name it and I've nabbed it at a bargain price.  I love vintage and thrift shopping because they provide the shopper with hidden treasures, just waiting to be found.  Bargain shopping at the mall is a whole different ball game because retailers don't typically mark down their merchandise too much except for Boxing Day and special sales.  So when I stumbled across this cute brown skirt at Old Navy for only $3 I just knew I had to have it.  (I also had to have the same skirt in royal blue because paying $6 for two brand new skirts is basically unheard of.)  Now if only I could find the same bargains at Chanel!

It kind of looks like divine intervention is happening in this picture I am glowing so much!

Remember when tiny multicoloured butterfly hair clips were all the rage? I thought I would bring them back, adult style!
