I'd say the majority of items in my closet were purchased on a discount. Between store rewards, frequent sales, and good old fashioned waiting-until-it's-marked-down, I don't like to pay full price for anything. But, every once in awhile, an item comes along that I want in my closet, no matter the price (well, within reason). This Zara tartan scarf was definitely one of those items. I totally missed the bandwagon the first time around, and it was impossible to find it in store. I periodically checked eBay over the next few months, and, of course, the cheapest one was still 3x the original price. I finally caved earlier this month and bought the cheapest one I could find (spoiler alert: still not cheap). I don't regret it though because I absolutely love it. The pattern is so great, and I can't wait to wrap myself in it throughout the winter.
