Jarrod and I both love a deal. However, I hate when he tells people how we got such a “deal” on something. Like if we just got something new and someone says that they like it, he’ll be like “dude, we got such a good deal! It was only $[insert super low amount here]!” And I get annoyed because I don’t want everyone thinking we’re cheap. But I am guilty of doing the same thing.

If you follow me on Instagram (and you should – especially if you like a million photos of sleeping pugs), you’ll see that we went to a gorgeous wedding over the weekend. It was a black tie wedding so I was excited to get to wear a long dress. But I didn’t want to spend a ton on a dress I would probably not get a chance to wear again (since when else do we go to black tie events? Hint: never.) I trolled the sale racks at Nordstrom and I looked for a good deal online and came up empty handed. It was hard to even find many cute long dresses and any that I did like were hundreds of dollars.

Then I found a pretty much perfect dress. And here is the thing Jarrod doesn’t want me to tell you: it was from Ross (aka Ross Dress for Less) and it was $30. THIRTY DOLLARS! I was thrilled when I found it, except that it was actually too short for me to wear heels (I’m 5’6″) so I had to wear flats. I was initially kinda bummed about that, but no one could tell and I was comfier. At the wedding, one girl said that she loved my dress and saw it at Nordstrom and wanted to buy it. “Nope it’s from Ross!” I told her just as Jarrod was walking up to me and rolled his eyes. Someone else asked if it was BCBG and I saw “No it’s from Ross!” Again, Jarrod was like “jeez, quit telling people that.” Later a girl I didn’t know complimented my dress and finally I said “thanks.” Jarrod would be proud.

So even though I get annoyed when he brags about deals, I feel some strange pride telling other ladies about dressing for less. I rarely pay full price for things if I can help it so I like to brag about it. It’s a little cheesy/inappropriate, but I just can’t help myself. Who doesn’t like to get a good deal? And here are some other photos from this absolutely gorgeous wedding.
