I must admit….I am not a shopper. I enjoy walking around and looking at items, but not regularly. I usually have a list and go for what is needed. My mother on the other hand, loves to shop. So today, yes, the day after Christmas, I decided to go with her. I have given up on the day after Thanksgiving. All of the crowds and lines just make me cranky. I thought today would be the same. We did however, have to return a bracelet that she had given me. I am not good with watches or bracelets. I tend to beat them to death…not on purpose, but just by wearing them. I did not have a clue what to exchange it for so I mentioned a Vera Bradley travel bag, knowing that I would need to chip in on the overage. Anyhow, let me explain my annoying issues with this. I always want to buy a bag, but then I become overwhelmed with the selection of colors and styles. So, I’ve been slowly purchasing a few expresso items. I have three (one I bought for myself last week). I wanted a color scheme that would compliment expresso……leading us to Mocha Rouge. When we entered our story in downtown, I found a MR bag on the sales rack and knew that it was in the wrong place. When I asked about this obvious mistake, I was told that it was not 50% off…..(knew it couldn’t be true)….but that it was 40% off. Let’s just say that I got my overnight bag plus a few extras! Merry Late Christmas to me! 🙂
By the way, even though I loved the Dooney and Bourke purse that I saw today….and took several deep breaths when I saw the price tag…..glad I got these instead!
