Great Sale: Smart Bargain PicksJune 15, 2011
I am posting this really really long warning before these posts in the future because I am really annoying. OK, I love a great deal as much as the next girl but please think of at least five occasions to which you can wear this item. I have too many one-wear or no-wear pieces in my closet and while they were had at excellent prices, it's not worth it. Think about it, if you buy 30 cheap pieces @ $10 a piece from F21 every month, in a year you have spent $3600 on some cheap clothes that you've worn only a handful of times. If you invest that money with a 5% annual return rate, in 20 years you'll have $9,551.87. I know we have to account for inflation, but can you imagine spending almost 10 grand a year at Forever 21?!
I am, once again, channeling my shopping urges into a sale post. This sale is full of raw gems but does require some patience to browse.
They are having a Midnight Madness sale that has officially started in which a selection of items (up to 89% off) is discounted an additional 50% off. New customers get free shipping. I adore this Betsey Johnson Black Corset Dress that is now $50 and change after the discount.
Additionally, they have a few pieces of Amrita Singh jewelry that are on sale for 3 for $99, including the Amrita Singh Dune Necklace in three colors. Again, free shipping makes this deal very attractive.
Sigh. This shopping ban has become unbearably hard to sustain...I am never one to sacrifice shopping highs but my closet is overflowing and in spite of two boxes of donations I still need more room in it to maintain order.
