I told you I'd be replacing some lingerie with my Macy's gift card. I spoke too soon.
Apparently, I have never before bought underwear that did not come bundled 6 to a pack and wrapped in plastic. (Cue Beverly Hillbillies music, if you dare.)
$21 barely made a dent in the bra department. I scoured the sales, asked the saleswoman for advice, and briefly contemplated novelty prints with hot pink lace.
The clearance rack stretched my credit farthest, despite its slim pickings.
That's why I am the unlikely owner of pale blue knickers. Oh, and that $2 strand of beads I needed to use up the gift card.
At least they match.
Do you think department store lingerie is truly better quality? Or is it just that we take better care of underwear that cost $7 a pair?
