As you know.... I have a bit of an obsession with a certain style of dress from Old Navy. I just bought three more, bringing my collection to 17 of them.
What I haven't told you is that a few days later, my friend Aneesha and I had another of our dinner/shopping dates and, naturally we stopped in at Old Navy. (It's her fault I found this dress style in the first place!). And wouldn't you know it... they had a previously sold out early summer print in the clearance section... in my size!
But then, last Friday, I had a lull in work. I don't know what possessed me, but I suddenly found myself on the internet typing in www.oldnavy.ca.... I certainly wasn't expecting to find any new prints. They usually retire it for the winter, and wait until February to bring out new ones in anticipation of spring. But I guess they are really good sellers, because there they were.... in SIX new prints. (Well - technically five... they've had a plain black one a few times....)
Thankfully, I only liked two of them.
With the last order, I'd bought the white dress with red flowers mainly because I wanted a dress to wear with my red shoes. I've been wanted a red dress for a very long time, and it seemed like the white one was the closest I was going to get for a while.... but wouldn't you know it....
So yes.... those two dresses are now winging their way to me and should be in my closet by the end of the week. Because really... the collection should just be an even 20!
I am happy to report, they were on sale for 50% off, so I don't feel as guilty as I probably should.
And, as much as I'm dreaming about cardigans to knit for them, I really don't have the time now.
And.... I was only a few dollars away from the free shipping offer.... and there was an additional 25% anything that wasn't already 50% off so....
And this ochre one insisted on coming along too....
