Bargain of the Year at the ESPN House

So last Saturday I went shopping by myself. As if being by myself wasn't luxury enough, I thought I might actually find some clothes that: a. looked good on me, b. were a price I was willing to pay and c. would be appropriate for work and/or weekend wear. So I start shopping - hitting all my favorite stores - Nordstrom, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Loft, GAP, etc. and find nothing (other than 2 plain t-shirts). Why is it that when you are ready to spend money on clothes, you can never find anything? I was getting a little disappointed and then I decided to go to White House Black Market. I was perusing through and found a dress I had my eye on for the past month - it happened to be on sale for $60 so I decided to try it on. Fit like a glove (Mr. ESPN's favorite term)! But then I started debating whether or not I needed another black cocktail type dress (I wear a ton of black) ... but then I open my purse and see I have a 20% coupon. Since I didn't find anything else that day I decided I would treat myself. Good thing I did because when the sales girls scanned the tag it came up as $30 before my coupon! So I only paid $25 for a dress that was originally $158! I was very proud of my bargain shopping! Here's a picture I found on the internet of the dress ... I am planning on wearing it to Kingston Queen's wedding and my friend A's wedding too with my sexy black shoes I posted about here.

Doesn't that feel good? Can't beat the feeling of wearing something expensive you bought for almost nothing.
Good work!
