Ok, so don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing I love more than shopping for the upcoming season – so in other words, right now I’m completely in spring-shopping mode (it might have to do with the fact that it’s currently snowing in CT and I’m so longing for warmer days). Below picture was me this morning headed into work.
When everything is gloomy and gray, the bright spring colors that line store walls are just what the doctor ordered for any reasonable shopper. But wait, hold that thought. Did you know that sometimes the best times to buy are during end-of-season sales? I know – the last thing you want to buy is another sweater or jacket – but quiet honestly, stores price clothes so low sometimes just to move them out.
I’m a huge fan of end-of-season shopping. Last winter around this time I bought a jacket from The Limited – originally $150, end-of-season after coupons and everything else, I got it for (get this) $17. I’m not kidding. I rock it all the time now!
So you know what? Buy that tweed skirt for $20, grab that sweater for $10, heck, buy those riding boots for $50 – trust me, next year you’ll be glad you did!

Big plans this weekend? I spent the evening at H&R Block having my taxes done. (Rockin Friday night). If the weather holds out tomorrow, I’m headed to Providence, RI for the day!
I leave you with this – completely unrelated to anything we’re talking about here, but so good and one of my favorite things on the Internet as of late. Damn it feels good to be a gangsta.
