Splurge vs. Scrimp: sweet summer Anthropologie dress



As Deal Diva Kim is currently on vacation, basking in the sunshine and sea breezes and catching up on her chick-lit, today's post comes to us from guest Deal Diva Jessica. Jessica covers the cops beat in Tampa, which you can imagine is sorely lacking in fashion inspiration. So when she popped into Anthropologie in Hyde Park the other day, she went bananas. Here's what happened...  Take it away, Jessica!

Price tag: $168.


I dragged myself back to the sales racks in the back and picked out two cute skirts, marked down to $50. Still pricey and not worth the compromise.

I left the store, walking past the newest object of my affection and mentally listing all the corners I could cut this month to afford it. I could bring my lunch to work more, skip out on movie dates (Redbox will have to do) and stay as far away from that complex with Target, DSW, Nordstrom Rack and Whole Foods as I can for awhile. But even then, it is worth the splurge?

Whataya think, Divas?
