Do you ever go into stores and just pick out entire outfits? I have this annoying habit of doing just that.
Case in point.
Annoying because it costs me money.
I literally told Robert, "We can't go into Anthropologie unless you promise to ensure I don't buy a thing. Nothing. Even if it's on sale. I'm just going to look. Not buy. I'm only there for inspiration."
Famous last words.
Why couldn't I be someone that has zero fashion sense, and no idea how to dress their body?
The type that takes 50 pieces into the fitting room, spends an hour cursing under their breath, trying on each ill fitting horrible piece, every one worst than the last, finally leaving the fitting room, flustered and angry because nothing even remotely worked. Defeated, they rush home to drown their mounting depression in a vat of salted caramel ice cream smothered with dark chocolate sauce buried under a mountain of crumbled graham wafer cookies while watching old reruns of What Not To Wear in their PJs.
I walk straight to the sales rack, literally pull out these two pieces and take them to the fitting room. Two pieces folks!
And walk out looking like this.
Pug photo bomb. Please remind me not to try to take photos when it is close to Zoe's supper.
Just 2 pieces. Out of the whole store.
I can do that 95% of the time.
Take away this Super Power. I don't want it anymore. It is ruining me.
The shoes were bought the same day at the consignment store when Robert took some of his clothes in to sell.
Yes, Robert was selling and I was buying. I was hoping you wouldn't pick up on that.
The fact is though that they are so picky at that store that they wouldn't take 80% of my clothes. I have to take mine to a different store. I don't have all high end brand names like hubby. The only stuff I have that would be considered higher end is my Anthro stuff and I'm not selling any of my Anthro collection.
Would you want to sell this cardigan?
Even the pug is looking at me wondering why I would ask something so stupid. And why I haven't fed her yet.
She is cute but she doesn't understand Mommy's super power.
Do you ever wish you weren't so good at choosing clothing for yourself?
