Patience Pays Off!

When the Southward Stop Shirtdress went on sale in the beginning the month, I figured that it would be impossible to find by the time I'd be able to pull the trigger on it due its popularity. Because of  the additional 25% Anthro is offering off of sale items, I figured that it wouldn't hurt to call around, but wasn't feeling particularly hopeful.

I called catalog sales Monday morning, figuring this would be the ideal time as Anthro does inventory on Sundays. The nice gal that helped me said that there were no 0s in stock at any location. She gave me the number of 4 stores that supposedly had 2s. The first store was completely sold out of my dress. I call the second store and they are sold out of 2, but have a 0! I must've scored a return? Either way, success! $45 (with free shipping) down from $128 for a highly coveted and hugely popular dress? Hell yes.

I got two other sweet deals from Anthro's current sale- A pair of superbly priced belts!

I got each of these for $15 with free shipping. These babies were originally priced at $48 and $44, respectively. Listen to how obnoxiously obnoxious I am. I love asking stores if they charge sales tax. They usually say, "Well, we'll charge your state's sale tax," to which I always reply, "The great state of New Hampshire doesn't have sales tax. LIVE FREE OR DIE, BABY!" Some of the sales associates are amused, some not so much. ;)

I would love to hear what others have scored from this sale! Lemme have it!
