gonna get you sucker.

i get to the counter with my items...

me: can i leave this (leopard jacket) with you?
i decided not to get it.
sales clerk: ok, sure.
me: thanks.
sales clerk: i love this (leopard) jacket...
it's so cute...
a lot of people have been buying it...
it's selling fast.
me: you know what? i'll take it.
sales clerk: got you, sucker! ok, are you sure?

does this happen to you? do you get suckered into buying things??

  3. I love the shorts and Haha! I think it's a great decision to buy the jacket. Is GFC really gonna be discontinued? Followed you already.

  4. Aw, I didn't know GFC was going away. Sad...

    Anyway, I am WAY to open to the power of suggestion. I am a marketer's (and a sales person's) dream, that's for sure. But in this case, it wasn't a bad thing, I don't think...I LOVE that jacket.

  5. Great choice on the jacket Oomph! I have heard about GFC as well. I already follow you on BL, but feel free to follow me as well if you like. By the way, I am the most influenced person on the planet and I can fall for any slight sales gimmick. Don't feel bad, it happens to all of us.

  6. Love the jacket. Also I heard GFC is just going away for non-blogger users, so that's a bit of a relief.

  7. I LOVE this look. I am sitting here staring at the photos and trying to remember if I have a red top that would work since I have similar items of the other two.
    Great buy. I can't say I do. The scenario I usually face is either other customers or the sales clerks asking where in the world did I find item x in the store. I usually pick up stuff that look like nothing by themselves but great foundation pieces. My sister is the funniest cause she quietly walks behind me in a store and grabs 50% of what I buy for herself. And we wear the same size!

  11. I really liked your shorts, and the jacket looks great! I have many things in my closet that sales people "made me" buy, and now I regret cause I don't wear them. That's why I prefer to shop without any "help". I usually run the other way when I see them. They annoy me.
    Regarding Bloglovin now, I was already a follower of yours there, since I use Bloglovin to follow the blogs I like. If you want you can follow me on Bloglovin too. I hope that didn't sound like all these blogger/spammer comments that people usually leave on the blogs. So, no pressure!

  15. That jacket was a fabulous purchase!! It looks great with the shorts. And those nude booties make your legs go on for miles!

  16. HAHAHAH! But I think you got a good jacket! Especially since it has a hood and is cut kinda sporty-- very unique for a leopard print jacket. I want that peanut butter-filled mochi, btw. Why oh why can't I find some here?!?!

  27. Love the jacket!

    I'm normally not one to succumb to suggestion, but I do have my weak moments.

    I have to ask, where do you get your mochi? Or do you make it yourself? I absolutely love it on the rare occasion that I can find it!

  28. Thankfully I tend to be pretty immune to peer pressure, for the most part. The last time I got carried away though, I came home with a ghastly 80's shirt dress. At least you came home with a cute leopard hoodie!

  29. Oh girl...I fall for that all the time. How can you not?! Honestly, I think you did the right thing. That jacket is H-O-T! I love it...I wish I could be bold like you.
