i recently read an article about the top ten pieces to have in maternity wear. one of them was a "drapey sweater".so the other day, i went to thyme maternity since it seems to be the only maternity shopping in both abbotsford AND langley. i was buying dress pants for the Tupperware conference that i was at this past weekend. while i was there, i saw a black drapey sweater. it looked good and i didn't have any black sweaters so i took it up to the till.
the woman behind the till said, "oh, i love this style - but i guess you can tell," motioning to her own drapey sweater that she was wearing. i told her that i liked the colour. she replied, "yeah - i got it at reitmans." hmm...all of a sudden, i wondered why i was buying a drapey sweater at thyme maternity for a ridiculous $45 when they had them at reitmans. i paid for my purchase and walked next door into reitmans. i found the sweater that was practically identical to the one i'd just bought except this one was only $26. almost a TWENTY DOLLAR difference!
i bought the one at reitmans and while i couldn't bear to return the one i just purchased minutes later, i waited to return it until today.
thanks to the thyme maternity lady for accidentally knocking some sense into me. :) i hope her boss doesn't read this post.
