I received a little postcard in the mail telling me of a 50% off sale at Coldwater Creek. I threw it next to my computer where I toss all the mail I never have the time to read. This morning it caught my eye and I picked it up, read it and discovered that EVERYTHING was 50% off--even the already reduced items--and it ended tomorrow.
Oh, my! I think my excitement surpassed yesterday's level when I saw the 50% off sign in JoAnne's. And how convenient that I just had a recent monetary windfall!
I decided to let my fingers do the shopping..............
Look what I bought..........
I saw this in the recent catalog and loved it. I wanted to buy it, but the $100 price tag made me reconsider. ..Yes, it is indeed ORANGE. But just look at the way the waistline is accentuated..........at 50% off, I decided to throw caution to the wind and give the orange color a try.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr..............this one looks like it could growl at you. Lucky me, they have it in my size.
A quick mouse click and it's mine!
I'll wear it just the way you see it...black pants and black tank -(with a heavy dose of gold jewlry)
Mandarin collared, crinkled teal jacket.......love it (except for the cuffed sleeve---but at 50% off, you can't always aim for perfection. I will have to find a light yellow sleeveless tank because I love the way it looks here.
Wing collar, buttonless front. Darted bust. Fully lined white jacket.
This one could accentuate the hips and believe me, mine do not need any extra attention, but I'm willing to risk it for the amazing $20.00 price tag. Fully lined for $20.00. Be still my racing heart!
And I just loved this red jacquard shell--Was $49.00 Reduced to $14.99. When you get to the checkout, guess what? They take another 50% off!
How could anyone in their right mind resist? It does not go with any of the above, but I am sure I have something in plain black to wear over the top of it.
I also purchased two white sleeveless tops to wear under jackets. I got all of this for just under $200 (including the S/H).
Does life get any better than this?
All that shopping leaves a girl hungry. I dined alone again tonight. This is what I cooked (in four minutes flat--can't be wasting time cooking while someone else snaps up all those bargains).
Scrambled eggs,1/2 of a hot dog, & mozzarella and cheddar cheese. I must be on a cheese kick the past couple of days.
