I love to shop.

I refuse to think that's a bad thing.

It's not as though I'm depriving anyone of anything.  There's no baby here in need of new shoes.

I don't do it too often, but when i decide it's time for a spree, i do it right.

I need want a new frock for our upcoming trip to Birmingham to celebrate my in-laws' 70th wedding anniversary.

A pair of cute shoes?  Why not?!  

If you wait long enough, look long enough, dig deep enough, you can find that perfect little frock on sale (and the shoes too).

And this an interesting new phenomenon in shopping you may or may not know about.

  If you go to a retail site and pull up something you like, maybe even put it in your shopping bag, but then leave, well,  you might receive an email offering you a discount.  Yep.  That's a thing.   Big Brother knows what you like, and will offer you 25% off if you'll come back and buy it.

I like shopping at Outlets.  Sundance Catalog is one of my favorite places to shop, but I usually have to wait for their sales and free shipping days.  Sundance also has a fun outlet.  But don't rush - even there the prices will continue to drop.

  Poshmark is a fine fine fine place to dig for that Johnny Was/ Anthropologie/ Farm Rio/ Free People dress you're wishing for.  

I know some of these brands aren't for everyone.  

Don't judge.  

Shop for YOUR look.  

And good luck finding some steals.
