In the September issue of People Style Watch there's a quiz, "What kind of shopper are you?" Shopoholic, Bargain, Wandering, or Need based? Based on the results, can you guess which type of shopper I am? If you guessed Bargain and borderline Shopoholic? You are absolutely right! Case in point. This dress was part of the 2011 Autumn/Winter collection from Karen Millen, originally $348. I wanted it as soon as I saw it! I waited for it to go on sale and picked it up after the holidays for $119! The only drawback? I didn't exactly have a place to wear a jade green cocktail dress in January, or any winter occasion without looking like leftover fruitcake. The classic con of a bargain shopper, "Sometimes a sale item isn't such a bargain. Do you really need it," (People, Sept. 212). My wants always overpower my needs....always!
