What's Penny Wearing? # 84 Embroidered, Embellished & Bright
I wasn't surprised to see it still there - for weeks, actually - because: A. It's an XS (which makes it all the more surprising that it fits ME - and yet, it does).
B. It's rather unusual - and colorful, and there may not be a whole lot of other women out there who would , shall we say, "appreciate" it's uniqueness.
C. For those whom it would fit, and who appreciated it's bright colors, there may not be too many of THEM who would buy it and WEAR it.
So, when it was still there the last time I went in, I figured it couldn't hurt to ask for a discount, at least.
I explained that it HAD been there quite awhile, and asked the clerk if she would take a little less for it. She was willing to give me one-third off the original price, which is what I would have offered - so I finally brought it home.
My reasoning was that even though I really do like it, it still isn't something that I will wear terribly often, hence my hesitation to pay their full price on the tag when I first looked at it.
But I still wanted it.
And you KNOW I love me some rick rack.
Penny likes it, too.
For right now, SHE is wearing it.
