As much as I love a good deal, I am not the door crasher type. Lining up in front of a store at ungodly hours for a chance to score a deal? Thanks but no thanks. That’s why it was very uncharacteristic of me to round up a few girlfriends for Fashion Crimes’ Boxing Day sale. I found out through the grapevine that the store is moving and everything is discounted at 60% off. I love designer Pam Chorley’s girly party dresses and the halter cut Jezebel Tivoli Mini is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. With most of the dresses regularly priced over $300, the sale is tempting all on its own. For added temptation, they advertised door crasher deal of $50 fill-a-bag for first 50 customers on Boxing Day.
My friends and I are on the same page about lining up in front of the store. We decided to arrive half hour ahead of the store’s 11am opening time and just let the chips fall. It was not ridiculously early. If the line up was already more than 50, we would go for breakfast and come back for their regular sale. If we luck out to be among the first 50, we wouldn’t have to stand in the cold too long either. Perfect plan.
