Dear ZDub

I have to confess. I am not fancy. I just LOOK fancy. Much like a poxed hooker.

My Blackberry is paid for by my work. My Starbucks mug was a bonus when I bought gift cards for a party last year. I was in line at QT for coffee. I bought those jeans at Goodwill for $1 and my sweater was a hand-me-up that M got from...somewhere. My Victoria's Secret panties were free with the coupon they send me every month and I bought the bra at the semi-annual sale. The headband was a spare bridesmaid gift from a wedding I officiated. I bought the Frye boots on eBay for about 40% of retail and my Coach bag came from the outlet. My big old truck is fifteen years old and hasn't been washed since I bought it.

Can we be friends again?

Yesterday you were bragging about the real you, today you are making excuses! I'm with ZDub - you are way too fancy for us mere mortals.

Oops! I have to confess that I too have a Coach bag from the outlet store.

@RPC the REAL me is a total cheap bitch! I NEVER pay retail! It hurts my heart to pay full price.

Thank you. I felt inferior after reading your label problem post, and realized I was wearing
-jeans from Walmart
-boots from Kohls
-a tshirt I got at a concert
-god knows where my underwear came from.

oh, and the purse I am currently carrying came from one of those $10 stores in the airport in Toronto.

Cause I take my rags on the road..

I never saw a 50% off rack I didn't like.

Oh..and my designer bags...all bought in a creepy alley in NYC from little asian ladies that wouldn't let me go till I bought something.

you like getting name brand for cheap check out Last Chance on camelback rd. friend of mine says they have Nordstrom brand stuff (like Manolo Blahnik, Betsy, etc) for severely cheap. I haven't checked it out yet but have been wanting to. let me know if you go, i'm on camelback in scottsdale now. not too far for me.

ha're awesome!

I never pay full price for anything, I'm cheap.

ZDub said...

I am so cheap that I Google coupons before I go shopping. And then print them out. TWICE.

We are best friends again. Totally.

Poser. (Heh.)
