While Nemo was pounding the northeast, I was sitting at the pool and when I got tired of doing that my girlfriend and I hopped in the car, drove up snow-free Biscayne Boulevard and did some browsing around Aventura Mall. Like I mentioned yesterday, although I may have been attempting to gloat about the temps in the high 70s, I was secretly wishing for some winter weather, boots and being snowed in with friends which brought me to this purchase.
These texts took place on February 9 during Nemo and February 16 when temps reached the low 40s in Miami.
Since I found myself at the mall out of sheer boredom and to accompany Kathleen while she was looking for something specific, we ended up in Guess. I honestly don’t remember the last time I went in there. To each her own but Guess and BEBE just aren’t for me normally. So while aimlessly meandering through the clearance section I came across this fantastically loud, extra fluffy, faux fur vest. I immediately tried it on and fell in love with how purely obnoxious it was. Although, February in Miami is the beginning of the tourist season and warmer weather, I have an upcoming trip to NY where I would surely get some use out of it. Still, a little apprehensive for such a seemingly unnecessary purchase, I had the cashier check the price – SOLD.
From originally $138, it was marked to $59.99 with an additional 40% off bringing my total to about $37. That’s $100 off!
When last Saturday’s forecast was available and I saw how potentially cold it was going to get I definitely seized the opportunity to wear the vest and one week from today I’ll be breaking it out to catch my flight north. I’ve said in the past I make sure to buy basic and staple pieces on sale but when you come across a statement piece with such a large markdown, how can you say no?
