Brag About It

When someone compliments you on something you're wearing, how do you reply? Do you brush it off ("Oh, this old thing?")? Do you you adroitly, politely say "thank you", (likely the best response)? Or do you use the opportunity to shamelessly brag about the great deal you got on the admired item (my usual route)?

Because, I have to tell you, I got this skirt for $20, and I am proud of it! I had been waiting to add a sequin skirt to my wardrobe repertoire for a long time; a few months ago, I picked up this Tracy Reese skirt at the Mint Julep sidewalk sale for a song. It's now one of my favorite pieces.

What's your best bargain find? Even if you don't brag elsewhere, I'd love to hear about it!

  14. I certainly was admiring this skirt when I saw you on Monday! I fully believe in bragging about fashion deals/steals, but you probably knew that already!

  15. Love this outfit!

    I'm horrible at taking compliments... I usually end up pointing out something that's wrong ("Oh, I love this dress, but it still needs to be altered a little bit"). Why do I do that? What is so hard about simply saying "thank you"?

    I always brag about the $3 skirt I got at one of those tacky juniors stores at the mall. It wasn't technically a bargain because it was only marked down from $20, but I've gotten so much use out of it that it feels like a deal to me!
