[Under $50] In the bag

I've always heard that it's important to differentiate between "wants" and "needs."  Knowing this difference is not just a financial necessity, it keeps buyers remorse at bay and your closet cleared of those worn-just-once items.

It's important to keep your wits about you, especially when Piperlime sends you an email with a code for an extra 25% off all sale items - savings on top of savings on top of savings with their ongoing Lime Tag sale.

That said, I NEED these pants.

And thanks to a little belated 30th birthday present and this email I got this morning, they will be mine, for only $26!  For the summer months, I love cropped pants, and these especially, with their high-waist cut.  Cropped pants fall at a sophisticated ankle-length without breaching the calf-capri length, and with a box-cut tunic top, offer a summer silhouette that keeps you cool, comfortable, and covered - a Muslim girl's summer style.

It's hard to visit the Piperlime site, especially when their signature Lime Tag sale is ongoing, and not exit without a few other things in hand...so I didn't.  My current basket includes the following:

There are a few things I desperately want, but until these things go on sale or are further reduced, they stay steadfast in the "want" category.

Sigh, it's 2013 - why haven't we invented the money tree yet?
