The doors opened and everyone walked in through the shoe section. Most stopped there, but I headed for the bridal section in hopes of finding dresses for my bridesmaids. You see, the color I was hoping they'd wear was from the spring/summer collection and wasn't being shown in the new catalog. I was betting that some of the dresses in that color would be at the sale.
I found two boxes full of dress in my color. I dumped them all in my bag to sort through later and browsed the rest of the sale rather casually. I found my Maid of Honor and we decided to sort through our bags. I found the dress she had wanted (one of the few one-shoulder dresses) and then picked out a few dresses for my other bridesmaids (who haven't officially been asked yet, but I'm hoping I picked well). I picked up a few more dresses for work and wound up with a tally sheet that looked like this:
Yes, I bought nine dresses...but some are for work and some are for bridesmaids. They were $30. I was stunned. I assumed they would be more at first because there was a sign saying silk taffeta and tricotine dresses were $50, but that was in reference to wedding gowns (they had some of the more structured wedding gowns for more).
See that pretty woman in the pink skirt? She's actually related to a future post! Stay tuned!
As I waited in line to check out, I found myself wondering if there is any home equivalent to this sale. I know Restoration Hardware, C&B, and Pottery Barn have outlets, but do home stores ever have these bare-bones sales?
Okay, spill it. If you're local, did you go the sale? What did you get?
