Discount designer denim is the new awesome

Last weekend I went to the Designer Jeans Warehouse Sale with Lindsay and Julia.


We had the option of paying $15 for a "VIP" ticket that got us into the sale a day early. The problem was, there were about a million other VIPs waiting in line too. We finally made it in and we each left with one pair of desinger denim jeans that, had we purchased them at Nordstrom's, would have cost us between $150 and $200 a pop.


In the end the breakdown was as follows:
$5 for gas
$15 for parking
$15 for VIP ticket
$5 for snacks whilst waiting in line
$10 for effort
$99.99 + tax for sweet jeans

Total for discounted designer denim: apx. $160

    Was that a retail therapy sesh for your car excursion? What's the update with das otto, anyhow? $5 for gas?! That's like driving 50 miles! No way san jose. San fran muni more like it.

    You're always a VIP in my book, btw.
