Never mind the REALLY bad day I was (am) having. Sooo I decided to hit my favorite Bal boutique today after work to check out the stock. I saw some new nice styles and asked about the older ones. My SA said the older season ones were all 50 percent off!!! I couldn't believe it! I chose a gorgeous work with great leather (being a Work fan since this week) and an sgh Day, plus a coin purse. When I wanted to pay, the cashier (not my SA) said, "Well those are not on sale". My SA then called their "mothership" and they also said no sales on Bals. I just left the bags there. I did manage to still ask about the coin purse :boxing:in my astonishment, and they were so embarrassed that they did give it to me for half off So it wasn't ALL bad but MAN! I'm still thinking about those gorgeous two bags I could have scored today , never mind the lost case and being stood up by a friend I haven't seen in months that I was all pumped to see.
