Damn You, Isaac Mizrahi!
(Left: my cute new jacket by Isaac Mizrahi, which I needed like a HOLE IN MY HEAD.)
I am powerless against your line of cute, cheap couture for Target.
I went to Target on an innocent mission last night – to buy a bottle of Target-brand ibuprofen for my aching head. By the way, a bottle of 24 is on sale for 97 cents.
That was ALL I WAS GOING TO BUY. But, like the lemming I am, I trotted over to the sales racks in the women’s clothing department, just to see what was up. It calls to me, like a big, giant cliff top.
And there it was, the Isaac Mizrahi jacket I have coveted (even though the Bible tells me not to) for the last 4 months. On sale. For 50% OFF. It went from $39.99 down to $19.98. Worst of all, they had it in my size. How could I pass it by?
Well, as evidenced by the picture above, I didn’t. I snatched that puppy up and scurried right quick to the cash register, cackling with glee.
I love this jacket. You can dress it up, you can dress it down, you can wear it to teach Real Estate Pre-licensing classes… which is what I plan to do this weekend.
Best of all (besides the awesome price tag), it’s SHINY. No, for real. There is a thread of shiny stuff woven into the material. It’s so subtle, you probably can’t see it in the picture, but it’s there. And it is FABULOUS.
