bad belle

i've been at work for less than 30 minutes. an e-mail from the new ann taylor pops into my inbox. buy one new full-price item, get one 50% off.

5 minutes later:



i do actually think i can fully justify these purchases. in the next two months i have 3 work dinners in new york city, two in d.c., one in atlanta, and two major on-campus events. these items are going to get a major work-out this fall, and as our darling legally blonde mel points out, it is ALL about cost per wear math.
right? RIGHT???

They are classic pieces that you can wear over and over. :)


(I am all about justifying purchases as needs)

Right!! If you can wear it lots of times I think it's totally justified ;)

Gorgeous! I'm so happy that Ann Taylor has been reinvented! I am loving so much of their fall line, especially those shoes!

MM said...

Totally! The more times you wear it the less it really costs! Well, at least that's what I go by...not sure if my husband understands that logic! :)

Love that dress. I am going to check out the "new" website right now :)

I love those. And I'm all about cost per wear, so I would consider them necessities!
