But of course, the only reason to tell you about the sale after the fact is because I did not boycott it, and actually went there on the Monday holiday, the last day of the sale. It was a way to avoid cleaning the house, but I did get quite a few other chores completed before treating myself. I tried on a ton of stuff but was extremely brutal in terms of what I allowed myself to buy. I forced myself to put back the ribcage sleeveless Rodarte shirt but did snatch up the Rodart leather jacket. Bad news is that I did buy 2 pairs of shoes. I was obsessed with the Proenza Schouler fall collection after spending too many hours this weekend watching The Day Before, a great show about various designers prepping for Fashion Week on Sundance Channel. So when I saw those shoes, I crammed my feet in them and decided they met my level of pain tolerance.
I love my shoes and my jacket (I also love the cheaper shoes and pants I bought but they aren't as special). Plus, I was able to park at a meter across the street that still had 40 minutes in it. Take that $12 parking!
