At a Shop for Success charity fundraiser I attended late last year, designer labels were 70% off and 100% of the proceeds went to charity. Honestly, I was overwhelmed with the amount of items in the store and it only grew more crowded by the minute. I saw a little purple piece out of the corner of my eye, but with my hands already full I let it go and walked away. I mentioned it to Liz as we were standing in line to pay and she asked to see it. So I went back and grabbed it. As soon as I picked it off the rack I fell in love with it. It looked so similar to my little white faux fur jacket that I love so much. Only this piece was a bit out of my price range. I decided to carry it around with me while shopping a bit more before putting it back. I swear while I was holding it, five different people commented on it. Three asked me to hand it to them if I decided to change my mind and one told me I was the “lucky one who grabbed it before she could.” I thought, of all the things in the store, should I splurge on the one everyone wants? Since the event was for charity (100% of the proceeds benefitted Shop For Success) I decided to spurge and take the jacket home with me.
