Have you ever noticed that you are willing to pay more for something just because Vera Bradley made it? This happens to me, mostly with accessories. For example, last time I called the Signature Store to buy a Hipster I asked if they had water bottles still. She told me that they did and they were $25. I said I would take one. Well then I got it and I had a what was I thinking moment. $25 for a watter bottle? If I was at WalMart or Target I would probably even think $10 was too much.
I am still tempted to buy a yoga mat, but just can't rationalize paying so much for it.
Oh well, this is going to work out to my advantage. I have decided to return my water bottle, so that is $25 I can spend on the new collection. My boss also was going to give me a gift card for a project that I had worked on. I still didnt get it, so I asked if I could just take care of it and buy the gift card and expense it. I even told her it was for Vera Bradley :) So of course she said yes. Now I am up to $50 to spend on the Fall Collection. This just keeps getting better and better.
I just bought a yoga mat and a water bottle for half/price. Watch the sales! I can justify half price --- can't you. : )ReplyDelete
