I decided that today was the day that I would turn D2's carseat around. She is 15 months and kicks the CRAP out of my seat. I overdid the 12 month mark and I'm done. Then I decided to check out a store that friends discussed awhile back at Bunco. Talbot's Clearance Outlet. Let me tell you that the clouds parted as I walked in and beams of sunshine broke through the ceiling. My style is very diverse but if I had a million dollars earmarked for clothes I would dress like Jackie O. I like the timeless look. Classic Natural is my official taste. I have a cable knit navy sweater from the Gap that I got to wear in my 7th grade school pics (YES... 7TH GRADE). It's a "bit" worn but I still wear it. Timeless. Anyways, I think Talbot's is that "look". Problem is that I can't afford to shop there. Until now. I went from rack to rack looking for my size. Had I been an XS I would have tripled my bounty but I still found enough to cause minor damage. The store is 60-75% off retail and they cap prices at $19.99. Currently, they are also discounting another 15%. This meant that nothing was priced over $16.99. Can you say HEAVEN??????? I ran out of there like I robbed the place. I found several things as well as a pair of shoes. Had I been there without D2 and/or she wasn't on the verge of total nap needing meltdown I may have done more. But 15 items later, we were out of there.
I called several friends on the way home enticing them with my purchases. I'm afraid that this place will become an addiction. Upon my arrival home, I added up all the tag prices. $1407 worth of retail merchandise for $191. I was fist pumping for HOURS. I took a gamble and didn't try anything on in the store as D2 wouldn't have it, but surprisingly only 1 thing didn't fit. Happy for me, it was too large! YAHOO! Now; they get new things in every day. I REALLY want this sweater in an appropriate size so I think I will be heading back tomorrow or Tuesday to see if I can find one. I also made my mind up to purchase one other thing (a blood red sheath dress) but need to try it on first. I have found my mecca!
