Poncho Season

Am I the only one who lives for a good deal? I like to raid the clearance and sale rack to see what I can find before looking at the regular priced items. And I don’t just look at my size, I will go a size up or down because some things fit better bigger and some clothing is cut bigger so you need to go a size down. My point is… DON’T limit yourself to “your size” when you’re shopping because you can be missing out on some fab finds (including shoes also).

That leads me to this poncho… I was shopping in Old Navy for some good steals and I ran across this poncho. As you know, ponchos come in a wide variety of colors and designs. This particular one stood out to me; it appeared classy and subtle. However, even though the poncho is oversized it fits very big on me; it’s more so over-oversized.

My initial thought was that this poncho is entirely too big and bulky, but on the other hand the price was only $10.97. I was having a battle with myself, because I loved everything about this poncho but I couldn’t deal with how big it appeared on me.

I eventually came to the conclusion that it’s only $10.97! If I didn’t like it that much then I could give it away to someone as a Christmas gift. Luckily enough, I got over my initial thoughts and began to embrace my over-oversized poncho.

 

Do you buy items a size up or size down because you can’t resist how fabulous it looks?

    I love that poncho, I was looking at one like it I admired at BCBG now I wish I had gotten it. I do buy clothes a size smaller admittedly, as a motivation to lose weight. I don’t go up higher because I’m trying to lose weight. Keep up the good work blogging.

    Hi Raven! I love the poncho! You really scored big time with it! It looks so great on you! I could also see you wearing a black, red, or pink, dress with it — I know I would if I could find something similiar! So, many ways to wear it! I love it!
