I was trying to find a sweater at Hollister. Most of the store was 40-50% off, so I hoped I could find it at the store so I wouldn't have to pay for shipping. It was an Epic Only style, but occasionally the store stocks some overflow items. Unfortunately, they didn't have that sweater but I found several other cute things I debated about buying but ended up leaving empty-handed. One of them was the Big Dume button-down shirt ($19.75) in navy plaid. I liked it because I don't have much plaid in my wardrobe and it has sparkly thread. I also checked out the jeans and liked the Cali Flares ($23.70) in rinse. I decided I would rather get another pair of slouchy jeans from American Eagle so I could use up the rest of my gift card. The Fallbrook twill pants ($19.75) in stone were also cute--a few posts back I explained that I bought them and then decided to return them--but I'm still not completely sold on them. If I had had more money, I probably would have bought them. The spring collection had a lot of great pieces, but since none of them were on clearance, I left the store without buying anything.
When I got home, I ordered the Dixon Lake sweater ($29.90) in burgundy online. I got such a good deal on it, since it originally cost $79.50! I fell in love with it the moment I saw it and knew I had to have it, but when Christmas came and went, I thought it would be gone for sure. With standard shipping, it only ended up costing me about $40, which is still a fraction of the original price. I haven't ordered anything online in quite a while, mostly because I hate paying for shipping, but in the future, if I like an Epic Only item, I'll just spend a few extra bucks and order it since it'll be worth it.
I can't wait to get my sweater when it comes--I'm just hoping it comes before I have to leave for school in a little over a week.
Do you order things online? Do you mind paying for shipping? What's the best part of ordering online?
