Yesterday was a day that forever changed me... and my wallet. Taking on my "non-cool kid" status in high school, it's easy for me to recall the last time I attended a Halloween party - when I was 14! CRAZY - I know!! However, now that I've accepted being a little left of center (and making friends with that in common), I am proud to tell you I will be attending Halloween festivities this year! :-) My best friend, Nikki (the one who's getting married), is planning on celebrating her Bachelorette Party on 10/30 so it requires a costume... I decided on the Queen of Hearts. (Let's be honest, for adults, Halloween is an excuse to play dress up.)
I got my costume a week ago and was THRILLED! It was relatively inexpensive, cute and just needed a few accessories - a tutu-like skirt and some stockings. Now, as of yesterday, this is where I've decided the costume shops get ya - my tutu-like skirt was $30!! Figuring I could find a better deal online, I searched high and low last night and found it for $25... C'mon! It was more expensive than the costume itself. So, with that, I bought that $25 tutu, decided that Nikki won't be getting as nice a gift as originally anticipated and you can now see me wearing my $25 tutu at every "Up Close and Personal" show you attend... Hey, I've gotta rationalize the price somehow! Ha. Happy shopping!
