So, I hit up three different Victoria’s Secret stores this week with my best friend Mattie to take advantage of the Semi-Annual Sale and we came out of the experience empty handed. I have to admit there is nothing in the world like scoring a haul of goodies from Bath and Body Works and Victoria’s Secret’s Semi-Annual Sale without spending a ton of cash on it!
I enjoy the Bath & Body Works Semi-Annual Sale but I have to admit I like the VS one more. I just like Victoria’s Secret line up of fragrances much, much more than the ones at Bath & Body Works.
Sadly, after skipping through three different stores my friend and I were quite unhappy for a number of reasons.
One of the worst things about shopping the Victoria’s Secret is the mess people create! I dunno about you but I think opening up, misting, squirting, and testing beauty that is on sale should be illegal. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves about the VS Semi-Annual Sale! Typically VS is kind enough to put out testers of the fragrances on sale yet I still see people opening up bottles and misting them around. Dude, why!? Why are you doing this when there’s a tester right in front of you? Not to mention the fact that everyone thinks it’s ok to squirt every bottle of lotion in a bin or squirt said lotion all over everything in that bin which makes everything a sticky mess. So, so sad!
VS has one of the messier semi-annual sales around as I typically don’t run into an issue like this in Bath and Body Works. Normally there stuff is pretty much clean and mess-free. People, just get extra hyper at Vicky’s I guess.
But I not only shopped the Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale online because of the mess but also because the stores we visited had a really, really small selection of products. There are a lot more items online in my opinion plus, you’re avoiding purchasing used, messy bottles of product!
I’d chat bras and panties with you too but that’s a tale for another day….!
The moral of the story is if you missed out in store or your store is just a big old mess, you can still grab some mighty fine offerings online!
Oh and my haul!
- Body By Victoria’s Secret (I have a bottle already but at $29.99 for a large size I grabbed another)
- The Trend Rose Fragrances (I got all four of these as I was waiting for them to go on sale!)
- Love Spell everything! (Needs no explanation right?)
- 6 x Secret Fantasies Eau de Toilette (I don’t know if you noticed but the EDTs now come in small square bottles!)
- A bunch of bras
- Ipod Case
- Makeup Bags
What did you haul at the Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale?
