Last month while browsing through the September issue of Country Living, I came across this purse in their editorial pages. The "where to buy" listed Dillard's as the location to purchase the purse (actually, it's a tote bag). I immediately wanted it. It's "the" purse I've been looking for. The price tag was a bit steep for my budget, but I rationalized that if I made and sold enough earrings and necklaces, I would put that money toward the purchase....good thinking, right? Downright practical.
Off I went to Dillard's to see the purse up close and personal...and couldn't find it or any other purse of that brand. Online....they had it only in black. I wanted 'tobacco'. A week or so later, I was browsing the Dillard's website and IT WAS THERE! More importantly, the price was reduced! $158.00 marked down to $110.00. In the time that it took me to answer a phone call and go get my debit card the item became unavailable once again. Another week passes....one of those sleepless nights and I find myself on the Dillard's site again. The item is in stock and unbelievable as it seems, they've marked it down again...to $66.36. I put it in their "shopping cart", signed up for their shopping service, and placed the order. Three days later, the purse of my dreams is mine and I love it! What I like more is the bargain---not so much the thrill of the chase.
I know it's a long, convoluted story and it's not really indicative of how I usually operate, but I can't explain how happy I feel when I pick up this bag and take off to work!
