People often talk about the high that comes from shopping, especially finding something amazing on sale. If shopping is a high, then I shall spend the rest of my life chasing the dragon of the Stel’s bag sale. A friend casually mentioned to me that Stel’s, a boutique with a great mix of edgy and refined clothes from very cool labels, was having a sale. You purchase a paper shopping bag for $25, $50, or $75 (depending on the size) and you fill it with sale items.
Holy hell, right?
I got there about 15 minutes after the store opened and was greeted by just a few other hardcore bargain shoppers. I tried on a ton of stuff, including high-waisted Alexander Wang pants, Opening Ceremony pleated wool trousers, and Surface to Air dresses. For every 3 things I tried on, 2 of them went back on the racks. But don’t feel bad for me, I managed to stuff a bag with some amazing finds. Now here’s where the bragging rights come in: Had I purchased everything at full price, I would’ve paid probably $1500, $1600 total. What did I pay? $50. freaking. dollars. Yeah, I’m dusting my shoulders off right now (shopping pimp)! Here’s a teaser of a few of the items I got…
Once the weather gets a little better, I’ll start wearing some of my fun new finds!
