Let the Spring clearance begin!

The first peek at the upcoming blockbusters, the opening of rooftop pools everywhere, finding that unexpected burst of Spring crush on a street corner -- I could go on and on as to why May is the best month of the year.

But while seeing Michael Bay movies, getting your bikini tan on and falling in love are certainly important and serve as justified reasons to anticipate the end of April, May, for me, is about one thing and one thing alone: the first round of clearance cuts.

The prices may be higher now than they will be in three weeks, but experience has taught me that if you love it, really love it, snap it up now before your size is gone.

In the end, ladies, Summer releases are never as good as Winter ones, tanning is an activity that really doesn't require natural sunlight and love...well, at present, I find clothes and shoes to be more satisfying.

Happy Spring shopping!

There are so many sales I can hardly stand it. I hit up the Saks Friends & Family sale as well as the Neiman Marcus and Saks Private Sales this weekend. I'll have to let my credit cards cool off in preparations of final markdowns in June.

I can't even afford to look at this post right now.

Why can't I lower my ethical standards enough to really go out and find myself a sugar daddy?

Sigh.

Jkuo-

Take 'em back! $30 is too much of a difference to let it slide.

That's a whole fifth of gin!
