A sales situation

What is it about sales which make me believe I need 500 thread count sheets? I fall for it every time (a reduction from £100 to £30 must mean they are selling at cost, surely.) And another duvet cover, too. I'm going to team this duvet cover, with grey pillowcases, for a slightly toned-down look, but this is my first foray into official yellow territory.

Yay, come over to yellow land! And at a bargain price too!

(That said I tend to avoid sales – always feel like I'm getting suckered into buying something I wouldn't have bought at full price – unless I did want it at full but couldn't afford it of course!)

Love the look and understand the addiction - I had to close my eyes on Sunday to set marked down to $40 knowing I really didn't need another Fuchsia set..sigh..

I absolutely love yellow and I'm a bit of a sucker for thread counts.

i think that everyone should own at least one set of 500 count sheets...we deserve to pamper ourselves!

Callie - the sheets were £30 for two. I love my new duvet - it looks much nicer than this in real life!

I am going to think about mustardy yellow and grey for an outfit now. I don't generally look good in any yellow but I am convinced that if grey were the main color, I could accent it with the yellow. Thanks for the idea! And yeah, I always feel like I need posh sheets ons ale as well!
