Competitive Shopping

I just had a little experience this week that I had to share and it is a great tip and reminder to all of you getting new outfits and purchasing gifts for the holiday.  

At the wedding this weekend this adorable girl had on a sequin dress that was AMAZING.  She looked stunning and although I wouldn’t have the guts to sport such an attention getting dress to a wedding, I pictured it as the perfect dress for New Years.  Naturally, I approached her and asked where she got it and she rented it from Rent the Runway.  I immediately went on and, of course, it is unavailable for NYE.  

I, then, started my hunt.  The only places I could find it were Saks, ShopBop, and Bloomingdales and it was on sale at all 3 places.  EXCEPT:  It was $130 cheaper at Saks.

 Saks didn’t have my size so I called Bloomingdales and they price adjusted – no problem – and sent me the dress with free shipping

Just wanted to share this story as a reminder that these stores are extremely competitive around the holidays and while this might not always work – you might as well try!
