I remember admiring this dress for months in the shop window – I loved the keyhole front, wrap style and gorgeous back. But like any good thrifty shopper, I patiently waited, checking back to see if or when the garment would go on sale. As luck would have it, one day it was, marked down from almost $200, to $60! I'm a believer in what's meant to be, will be – so while I'll snatch up a good vintage bargain immediately, I will patiently wait for current pieces to go on sale ... because they almost always do. And if I miss it? Well, it wasn't meant to be ... and I'm onto the next store.
