Neiman Marcus is the devil. I once innocently went to their web site to enter a sweepstakes, and now I get daily messages in my inbox trying to lead me to temptation with words like "Roberto Cavalli" and "25% off". Normally I laugh in defiance and hit delete before I even open the message. Nice try, Neiman Marcus.

But today. Today was different. Today they said the magic words "Last Call Online Clearance" combined with "Extra 20% Off". Holy mother of God. Try as I did to resist, the force was too great and before I knew it, I was clicking my way through Diane von Furstenburg, Elie Tahari, and Robert Rodriguez dresses and Valentino Mary Janes at (gulp) REASONABLE prices. My lip began to quiver. My hand began to tremble as I scrolled through page after page of awesomeness.

This Dress is by Young Fabulous and Broke. See? It was made for me!

*sigh* *swoon* *whimper*


My demon-possessed mouse made its way to one of the dresses and clicked on Shop By Size as I screamed "NOOOOO!" in my head. But as luck would have it, they didn't have my size. The issue that usually plagues me at sales saved me from certain divorce. Ha! Maybe next time, Neiman Marcus.

Yep. That would be very tempting.
