I took a trip to Ann Taylor a couple months ago and fell in love with two dresses. My sale stalking paid off, because a couple weeks ago I was (finally!) able to use a 60% off sale coupon code to score those dresses plus two more, at 75% off their original price. I bought all three dresses in the first row below. I'm planning to keep all three, while today's dress and jacket may not make the cut. I love the classic shape of the navy dress #4 below better and will be sale stalking accordingly. Everything is 50% off sale right now (no code, discount taken at check out). My advice: run, don't walk!
ps. If they don't have your size online, try the "find in store" option. You can call any store directly and have them ship a sale item to your house.
