now normally i don't answer unrecognized numbers but the shopping gods were looking down on me and whispered in my ear, pick up the damn phone!
i did, and the conversation went a little like this...
nordy's: hi alexa, it's crystal from the handbag department at nordstrom's. i wanted to remind you about our semi annual sale starting on wednesday.
me: oh i know all about it. i got the announcement in the mail last week.
nordy's: great! well i wanted to let you know that the red chloe shoulder bag that you have had your eye on for quite sometime now is going to be on sale for 50% off starting on friday when the designer items go on sale.
me: SHUT UP! SHUT UP! and you personally called to tell me this?!?! (completely shocked)
nordy's: (laughing) well i knew you wanted it! if you want to stop by the store tonight i can pull it from the display for you, take your payment information and just ring it up on friday when the sale officially starts and then you can pick it up.
me: oh i'm there.
hook, line and sinker.
right after work i made the trip to beachwood place to "hold" the purse for myself. and i may or may not have also danced around the purse department singing that i was finally going to get my chloe.
the wonderful sales associate also gave me the scoop on everything else that was going on sale just in case i wanted to "hold" anything else for myself. i plead the fifth.
so if you didn't figure it out yet - yes, i'm a bag snob. call me frivolous all you want. if this is my biggest vice i consider myself lucky.
although i did break one of my new years resolutions in purchasing this bag. oops.
but now that i have finally purchased the bag i have been swooning over i think i need a new bag to covet. do you see this horrible cycle i'm in? ha.
what purse/shoe/accessory are you currently swooning over?
