Pants: American Eagle (here), Shirt: J. Crew (here), Shoes: Steve Madden, Necklace: F21, Lips: Fire & Ice. Clutch: Target. (here)

It's gotta be a quick one today, but I have to at least tell you about this blouse.

I had been eyeballing it ever since it hit the J. Crew floor, but there was no way I was ever going to pay $135 for it. Just crazy! So I waited for it to go on sale, hoping it would be a really good sale, the kind that knocks it to like half off. 

As you know it was my birthday last week and I had a little extra cash to spend, and I knew just where I wanted to spend it. 

So I'm checking out the sale at J. Crew and find this blouse and my heart does a little happy dance! I tell myself I will not spend more than $60 on it, knowing I will get the extra 15% off since I'm a student. It just happened to be on sale for $69 I figured that was a good compromise. 

So I try it on it fits perfect and I'm ready to buy! I go to check out and she says ok this will be final sale since it's an extra 30% off.

Just wait it get's better. I know you're freaking out right now!

Can I still use my student discount? I say

Yes! So that will be 45% off. 

So at this point my heart does a triple happy dance!

Then I tell her I want to exchange this belt I bought a couple weeks ago (too small) 

Apparently that belt has gone on sale too and I get the extra money back. 

Long story short (too late right) The shirt was only $20. Do I need to say that again? $20!

 It went from $135 to $20! 

Moral of the story do not ever buy anything full price!

So much for keeping it short! Hope you have a great weekend!
