Happy Thursday FABulites! Hope you day is going well as always! We are experiencing the outer effects of Hurricane Sandy so the South Florida Weather is not so nice today but we'll get through it. So I have this habit of many years telling people how much I paid for certain things and its not because I'm a showoff it's because I absolutely LUV telling people about the great deals I find. But after the experience I had yesterday I just might want to rethink my actions. Yesterday in the elevator at work there was this nicely dressed woman with a super fab bag so I stated, "I luv your bag"!
She responded by telling me she spent 1500 on the bag, another 800 on the shoes and over 500 on the accessories she was wearing. I was stunned and didn't really know how to respond! In my head she'd just called me a basic bi*** which lead to me giving her a virtual slap!! She was headed to the Penthouse suite and I was headed to the 4th floor so I purposely pushed the buttons for floors 7,8, and 9 just to give her a little time to think about her inappropriate response. As a bargain shopper I luv telling people even strangers how much I've spent on certain items, but the question I have today is, Is it OK to do the same when you purchase expensive items? Did I have the right to be offended by someone who did what I have done on numerous occasions just on different ends of the pay scale? Is it ever ok to discuss pricing after receiving a fashion compliment? Soundoff on the Frugal Flirty N Fab!
While you ponder on my question of the day let me share with you my Outfit of the Day!
