Oh my goodness. I tried on wedding dresses today!
Oh my goodness. I bought my wedding dress today!
Oh my goodness. I’m having buyers remorse today.
Don’t worry, it’s totally expected. I once vomited after buying a Versace cocktail dress (and sweater, and jacket, and jeans, and Versus t-shirt). I blamed it on too many adorable, hand-held bottles of champagne (with pink straws!), but I truly believe it was a wicked buyer hangover that started the immediate moment I left the store. Seriously, Versus Vertigo. True story. I digress.
So, yes, for reals, it’s a beautiful dress, and best yet, I even scored a 30% discount on it which means: I. Came. Under. Budget.
I know, I couldn’t believe it either.
It totally helps justify my rapid-fire trip to Victoria’s Secret this morning. I spent 7-minutes in the store; therefore averaging only $13.72 per minute. When you look at it that way: nada mucho. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
I got the very last make-up bag in the store, free with my purchase. Bonus! And at an $85 value? Recrunching my numbers that puts me only at $1.57 per minute. That’s less than the cost of a school lunch in the late 90’s. Trust me, I know.
Ok, so one could question the validity of the VS make-up bag pricing, but I refuse to look a gift Angel in the mouth.
So, long story short – not only did I get free stuff this morning, I bought a wedding dress. Save for a string of shitastic emails that sent me into a chardonnay-slugging fit this morning, my day was pretty damn boss. Not to mention I got to spend some time with some of the classiest dames I know.
Back to the couch I go, Maraschino cherry-filled glass of inexpensive champagne in hand (and paint-stained sweats on).
PS: I just ordered sugar cane for a recipe, and I’ve never worked with it before. I just hope it’s not of the ‘parrot treat’ variety. #PollyWantAnOvenBakedHam?
