'That That Is, Is'


The bf and I were waiting for GNC to open one morning and decided to escape the cold in the only store open in the strip mall - Marshals.  While haphazardly browsing for a while, we made our way towards the door when the bf spotted these Frye boots.  I grabbed them from him, flipped them over and the lovely price tag stared back at me:  $39.99!  Of course I deemed this a huge mistake (since the original price tag put it at $348) so I marched towards the checkout, whistled while I was rung up and promptly ran for the door!

Have you guys ever 'corrected' the price tag on an item you knew was mistakenly marked way down?









What I'm Wearing:
Boots:  Frye
Skirt:   Sheer Maxi - Free People
Blouse:  Victoria's Secret
Long Cardigan:  Victoria's Secret
Lace Tights:  Victoria's Secret
Vintage Coach Bag
Shearling bought from Italy (and on sale in my closet)Pin It

  3. I really like outfits that have black (as you might tell from what i wear lol) so when i see outfits with black and a pop of neutral i really love it. The additional colors doesn't have to be LOUD and i like these looks. Really cool outfit!

  11. well, i have two or three things to say.
    first- that's a GREAT look! I love the soft lace, airy skirt, your boots! and the sun on the photographs :)
    secondly- i don't understand how they were 'mistakingly' marked down? what should the price have said?
    thirdly, i one bought a book that was supposed to cost 50 but I got it for 25 ;) but hey... i'm a poor student!
    but, there were cases like argos and boots where it was held that a when people try to 'snatch up' something they know or ought to have known is an incorrect price the contract will be invalid...
    i guess we're just lucky ;)
