|The Best Compliment Ever-Plus-I still love Ross

I have on a very sassy, yet work appropriate outfit today. I bought a longer olive/browns/golds silk skirt that fits for $4 at Ross and I have on a Brown Gap sweater that was on sale for $13. I paired that with my sparkly bronze heels and a green necklace that Bel gave me. Nothing I have on, including my coat did I pay over $20. In fact, including the coat and shoes, it was a total of $54 for the entire outfit.
That said, I've gotten about 15 compliments today! My favorite one, was my co-worker, Mana. She knows about my weight loss situation and we've talked about it before. She's very sweet and supportive about it. I love how she asked me the first time, she just blurted out, "Have you lost a LOT of weight?" It was cute. She said, "Wow! I knew you were pretty, but I didn't know you were so stunning! You just look great and totally beautiful! Good for you."
*smiles* Then a guy in the lunch line was just hilarious. He asked me what would happen if I clicked my heels together. I told him I was afraid I'd end up in Burien and I had a meeting to go to. No compliments were backhanded and/or sleazy and leering.
I love saving money. It sounds stupid, but I just get a big thrill from it.
