The Price IS Right

I am 100% influenced by the price tag on an item. 100%.

When shopping, it is not unusual that I will find the most perfect item and then be immediately deterred by the cost of said item. The impact is so great that I will instantly begin to find actual, or imagined, flaws. I can walk away from anything if the price is not right.

However, there are few things I find more satisfying than stumbling into an amazing bargain. Occasionally I find something I really like and then I will check the price to find that it started off economically priced or, even better, marked down. In those moments, true love is found. It doesn't really matter what type of item or how badly I do, or do not, need it.

Today I found love on the $2 table at Barnes & Noble. 2$!

You have just described me. This was my Sunday outfit today:
$10 belt
$10 scarf
$10 sweater dress
$15 shoes

And I felt skinny in them. Such a bonus!!!! Who needs reality when perception is such a lovelier lens?
