But back to MY pre-sale experience. I went on the night before Thanksgiving, again driving all the way down to South Coast Plaza. The initial sale savings is 30%. I grabbed about 20 things to try on, fell in love with several dresses, knocked some sense into myself regarding jackets/coats I absolutely don't need, made my final clothing selections, and then threw in a pair of shoes despite the fact that I told Lisa I wasn't actually crazy about the shoes from the Fall season. I'm sort of holding out for a purse for when it drops to 50%, we'll see what happens.
When all is said and done, I bought 3 dresses, one shirt, one sweater, and a pair of shoes. I think. I almost can't remember anymore. Here's what that looks like. The best part is that Lisa let me take my purchases home that night instead of waiting until Nov 30th, because I'm super special! Please note that not all the pictures are the actual colors/patterns that I bought, but you get the idea.
