I can't tell you how good it feels to have a sold out item suddenly show up as in stock on my Anthropologie wish list. It makes me feel like I am somehow cheating the system and finding a secret prize hidden just for me. Today I managed to score the Pondside Cardi in blue that I missed out on during its second markdown to $29.95 (originally $118.00). Yipeee!
Anthropologie may have some ridiculous prices but they are really good about marking things down 50% when they go on sale, and even further if the item sticks around past the first markdown. The only problem with their sale prices is that it makes me feel like I am required to buy things because otherwise I am missing out on such a great deal. There is also a "rush" I get from scoring something awesome at a huge discount or by finding something that was previously out of stock. Hmmm.. maybe there is more to this addiction than I'm acknowledging.
