With New Year's Eve around the corner, this is the time to look for evening dress sales. Macy's 50 percent off sale -- some already 50 percent off on clearance -- is a pleasant surprise. Check it out this weekend. You never know when you might need a nice dress.
Unfortunately, some thoughtless shopper played a dirty trick on me. I found a magnificent little black dress by Anne Klein on the clearance rack, tried it on and loved it. (One of those dresses that fits like a dream.) But the tag was not marked clearance. Sure enough it wasn't marked down. At $168, sadly I had to pass.
Then, I got home and checked Macys.com and the dress is marked down to $107. Should I splurge? -- Marcia "Bargain Hunter" Pounds
