Wednesday I share with you that size doesn't matter, fit does. Then, on Thursday I shared that you shouldn't trust hanger appeal. Today for my final day of this mini-series I'm sharing what I think is the most important tip of all: it will always go on sale! Back in my less frugal days I'd go shopping on Friday at 7:00 for an outfit for that night. We did this a lot and I specifically remember spending $80 on a bedazzled belt at Express. That is insane, people. Luckily, I've gotten wiser as I've gotten older.
Although I'm declaring Express' Portfolio Shirt the perfect blouse, it's $50. Boo. Enter the "Flash Sale." Everything in Express was 40% off. That, my friend, is always when you buy. As much as I love this shirt, I love it more for $30. Now there's bird print and a polka dot dress option. I die.
*i just checked this morning and the Portfolio Shirt is on sale for buy one get one half off.
I know it can be annoying to have your inbox filled with promotions from different stores, but I use those emails to know when to shop. I delete frequently, but when the deal is sweet enough I am sure to take advantage.
After buying this shirt I immediately knew the first way I wanted to wear it was like this. When Tara wore the combo this summer I was in love, so I was excited to get to recreate it for work. I already have few more looks lined up for this blouse and I'm definitely not ruling out getting this blouse in a third color either (when it goes on sale again, that is.) : )
