Last Thursday I was sitting in a hair salon waiting for my cousin to finish a hair consultation. I was bored so I checked my email (one of the many perks of having an iPhone) and was very excited to see that I had gotten an invitation to The Outnet's $2 Sale in celebration of their 2nd Birthday.
Once I got the invitation I obsessed for HOURS about what to buy which turned out to be pointless because nothing I saw on the site prior to the sale was actually a part of the sale. The invite stated that between 11am-12pm I would receive an email with the link. I started refreshing my email just before 11 and thankfully they only tortured me until 11:13am. Once I was in the sale I was in panic mode. I think the key to a sale like this is to be decisive. Making decisions fast is essential to getting what you want. I didn't make decisions fast so a few things I would have liked to get sold out on me (like a white Celine trench). If I am lucky enough to get an invite next year I will act A LOT faster.
I ended up getting a Donna Karan Crepe Sleeveless Vest.
Here she is. I have to admit that I was a bit underwhelmed with the vest. It fits and is definitely well made with good quality fabric but I am considering selling it. The original retail price was $1765. Who buys a vest for that much money?!
If you have read the blog for a while you know that I have been wanting the Alexander Wang Rocco Duffel. If I can sell it I might put the money towards the bag.
What do you think I should do?
