skirt-lovers of the universe...unite.

Okay, so that was a lame title, but I got your attention, right?

Let me tell you the story of me finding a smokin' bargain.

It all started when I took Avykins to the Halloween sing-along at PBK a few days ago. What a grand time we had.

Then we ate lunch. It was a lovely bonding moment for the 2 of us.

Then we walked through Old Navy to get out to the parking lot.



That's when it all happened.

My life was suddenly changed for the better...forever.

I was cruising through the store and low and behold what do my eyes wander upon? Why, it was a $2 clearance rack. Anyone who's anyone knows that I am a magnet for a deal. So of course I stop to cruise the rack.

My eyes about popped out of my head as they fixed themselves upon the ever famous knit-cotton Old Navy skirt we all love and admire. It's great for fat days...it stretches; it's great for skinny days...it retracts; it's extremely great for pregnant days ...again, it stretches, and it has a fold-able band that a pregnant being can propel over the baby bump or under, take your pick.

So I think to myself, "Self, you should really load up on these babies. Get one in each color for heaven's sake...they're only $2!"

So as Avy stares on in wonderment at her possessed mother, I load my stroller with the knit wonders and then the even bestest part of the adventure occurred:



A cute pregnant lady with eyes all a-glow whispers in my ear,
"I just heard they're only 99 CENTS!"

Hoo-dilly! So I walked out of my Halloween sing-a-long adventure with 13 skirts, baby.

That's right, 13 skirts!
And what prey-tell damage did that do to Tat's pocket book you are wondering? The rightful amount of $13.24.

And what prey-tell will Hayley do with 13 skirts you are wondering? Sisters, friends, foe, don't be surprised when you unwrap a gift from yours truly and it happens to be a bouncy, flouncy Old Navy skirt :)

Can I get an AMEN for a smokin' deal. Thank you.

Point of this diatribe...Get over to your local Old Navy PRONTO!!! I've warned you about steals in the past and you DO NOT want to pass this one up.

Bay Area ladies, or men if skirts are your thing, I got these at the O.N. at Valley Fair.





HAPPY SHOPPING!

I have that skirt in white and I use it as a cover up at the pool and it's great. I think I paid as much for that one as you paid to get 13! Perhaps I will now run to Old Navy--I hope there are more left!

I am more than a little jealous. What a steal!

Tammy said...

I love it!! A good deal like that can make you smile almost as much as a full tank of gas for under $90! :)
