I just had to buy this - can you guess why?



That's right- this is a Simply Vera, Vera Wang Shirt. I scored this for all of $1.25. Brand new with tags on. Tags said $34.00. I got it at the salvation army store 2 weeks ago. 
I have to say I just HATE this shirt. The only reason I got it was because I wanted to say I had a Vera Wang item. But I have to say I really don't feel any different since I have it. I have worn it a couple times under my green hoodie. Which it goes good with. But for some reason I thought I would feel different having a Vera Wang piece, but I don't. Maybe it was the way I was brought up. 
One piece of clothing was just like another. Just that- a piece of clothing. Names meant nothing to me growing up. We weren't brought up in an area where all that hoopla of who was wearing what name brand meant anything. 
Why is it today that, that is all that matters is what brand name you are wearing? 
Our world is so sad.....

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord and continue to shop the discount stores for all those hand me downs from everyone else. All they ever need is a good washing and maybe a stitch or two.

Ours has 1/2 off every 2nd Friday of the month on everything. Then every Saturday is .49 cents for that weeks color tag. So I go at least once a week and it's usually on Saturdays. We are always picking up something or other.
