The Tiny Heart: Look What I Got Link Up: Target Floral Skirt

Look What I Got Link Up: Target Floral Skirt

I got this floral skirt from Target. For some reason, it was labelled "online item" and it was marked down to $5.67 from $22.99. There were plenty of other ones on the rack but this was the only one that was on sale...SCORE! Actually purchasing it was another story... 




Denim Jacket-Old Navy (similar), Tank-Express (similar), Skirt-Target, Pumps-c/o Oasap

I was buying a bunch of other stuff (naturally at Target I never buy just one thing) and I had a physical gift card and a few on my phone. The guy scans the first two and when he gets to the third, there's an error message. He tries manually typing it in...fail! So then he has to get the manager. (He closes the line off to more customers and I know it's going to be a while). She looks at it and asks if I'm sure there's money on it. Lady, I'm sure! She attempts the same thing the guy did with no luck. So then she gets on the red phone and they are no help. I start thinking I won't be able to buy the rest of my stuff. She decides to just void the order and try it all over again. And finally, it goes through!

  7. Don't cha just hate when that happens? Have you got the new Target Red Debit Card? Ahhhhhhh, the heavens have opened! That things save you additionally, too, beyond the other discounts. Yes, Target is my Neiman Marcus! (you know, in comparison to my thrift haunts)

  24. Super pretty skirt! Perfect spring florals! I'm glad in the end you were able to use that gift card, I'm sure it was a panicky moment when it wouldn't work!

    ReplyDelete
  25. This is definitely my kinda outfit! Comfy & cute with a denim jacket!

    Is it me or do all cashiers seem to panic when giftcards/coupons don't work the first time?!

  26. I learned a secret from store employees. If an item is not sold in stores and online only and someone returns it to the store, they immediately heavily discount it because they have no place to put it. They just want to get rid of it. So, it sounds like whoever processed the return of the skirt you bought didn't realize it was available in store! I thought I was good when I got that skirt for $10. (On sale $15 and then a $5 coupon). You beat me...haha.

  34. Your skirt is so cute and for a steal of a price! I linked up today's outfit because I got the leggings & necklace for such a great deal. And I guess we are both thinking alike with our florals. Cannot wait till I get my hands in a Denim Jacket. I got rid of mine a couple of years ago & what a regret that is now.

  35. Wow! How lucky did you get. That skirt is fab! xx
