I really hadn't thought about it much since last year, until my friend reminded me that it was coming up. She setup an appointment on the first day of early access and that was it - my mom and I headed up there and I pretty much blew my entire annual budget for clothing in one day.
Not really, but the deals were so good that I spent entirely too much. Because once I got home I also did two rounds of shopping online as well. Not just for me, but also for the U and a couple of things for the kids.
The sale came at the right time - I'm in a total transition when it comes to clothes it seems. I recently cleaned out my closet and am trying to stick to classic pieces, so we'll see how long this lasts! I'm a sucker for a sale, but I'm also tiring of the cheap clothes I buy that don't last me more than one season.
Here were some of my faves for the ladies this year:
Clearly I'm afraid of color, aside from at the gym.
Also - word to the wise - if you have children, leave them with a sitter. I didn't and it was utter chaos. I'll be going at it alone next year because this sale can start to become a bit overwhelming.
