Buy One, Get One 50% Off (Full Priced Styles Only) 2

So continuing on from my previous post, $600.00 - $700.00 is a lot of money especially when a) you don't really need new clothes and b) there is very little in the kitty and it will take several months until I can start saving again.

There are three outfits - black lace, blue dress and the white look. I have a voucher for $125.00 (vouchers can only be used on full priced items), and I have calculated the three outfits using the voucher. As much as I like all three, common sense is asserting itself and I need to have a good, hard think and select one. But which to choose?

1. I like the  Black Lace and Florals because it looked stunning, but ask myself - how often will I get to wear it?
2. I like the  Blue Summer Shrug  too and I would get more use out of this than I would the first option, the black shrug  can be used with a number of other dresses and outfits.
3. The third option  White and Silver  looks so very clean, pristine and pure and is a new departure from the colours I would normally wear, but how often does one wear white?
4. I am leaning toward the first option - Black Lace. This outfit would be worn with the Gorg Tunic in fuschia and black cropped leggings. I have a pair of dressy black leather sandals (brought for a wedding).


Option 1 - Black Lace and Florals


Above: ROXANNE CARDI and ETERNAL ROMANCE TUNIC

$149.95 + $69.97 = $219.92 less $125.00 = $94.92



Option 2 - Blue Summer Shrug


Above: PALM FROND MAXI DRESS and EYELET MESH SHRUG

$129.95 + $44.97 = $174.92 less $125.00 = $49.92



Option 3 - White and Silver


Above: MILLENNIUM TOP and GOING PLATINUM TANK

$119.95 + $44.97 = $164.92 less $125.00 = $39.92



Accessories - Jewellery Jive
Out of the three pieces here, I like the first two best. I did like the third but when I saw it instore, I had second thoughts. If I purchase it, it would only be because it is 50% off.


Above: MULTI NECKLACE and SEED OF DOUBT NECKLACE

$49.95 + $29.95 + $19.97 = $99.87

Buy One, Get One 50% Off (Full Priced Styles Only)

The Buy One, Get One 50% Off isn't a bad sale idea, the item with the 50% off must be of equal or lower value than the first item. Good, good, that's good. Or is it? I did a trial run of nine items, listing them from highest to lowest price. Now you would think every second item which is a lower price than the preceding item would be half price - yes? Not so. What the website does and does automatically, is source the lowest priced item on your list and take the 50% off that. That's a bit cheeky don't you think.



Here's my list
Price is automatically calculated on their website

ROXANNE CARDI - $149.95

ETERNAL ROMANCE TUNIC - $139.95

PALM FROND MAXI DRESS - $129.95

MILLENNIUM TOP - $119.95

GOING PLATINUM TANK - $89.95 Now $44.97

EYELET MESH SHRUG - $89.95 Now $44.97

MULTI NECKLACE - $49.95 Now $24.97

SILHOUETTES NECKLACE - $39.95 Now $19.97

SEED OF DOUBT NECKLACE - $29.95 (Special doesn't apply to this)

Total: $704.63


The way I would calculate discount prices

Now to my way of thinking it is fairer not to mention cheaper, if the 50% discount is applied like this -

ROXANNE CARDI - $149.95

ETERNAL ROMANCE TUNIC - $139.95 Now $69.97

PALM FROND MAXI DRESS - $129.95

MILLENNIUM TOP - $119.95 Now $59.97

EYELET MESH SHRUG - $89.95

PALM FROND BLOUSE - $89.95 Now $44.97

MULTI NECKLACE - $49.95

SILHOUETTES NECKLACE - $39.95 Now $19.97

SEED OF DOUBT NECKLACE - $29.95 (Special doesn't apply to this)


Total $644.63

That's a difference of $60.00.
