Occasion: work then clothing swap.
Today did not start out well, traffic + standing on a bus = not my definition of a perfect morning.
While at the 7 days of vintage sale Friday, my sister and I found out about a clothing swap Monday and decided to check it out. I was tired all day yesterday and all I wanted to do was go home and vedge but I forced myself to not be a lazy as. Met up with Steph and we made good time (I live far from everything so it takes me a million years to get home from anything) so we were at the swap around 6:30 and I was back home around 8:30. There weren’t many people but we still managed to get some good stuff. I got 2 dresses, a pair of jeans that Steph was getting rid of, 2 skirts, a purse I will probably put in the shop and a belt. Not a bad deal in exchange for a bag of unwanted clothes and 5$. One of the skirts is actually from Topshop and I haven’t quite made up my mind if I will keep it or not but I wanted to bring it home and try it out with a few things before making up my mind. [It’s long, I’m short… we’ll see if we can put aside our differences and get along]
I decided to wear this skirt because when I went to the Value Village 50% sale and had a pencil skirt on… trying on pants was no easy task. I also threw on a tank top (which I hardly wear to work) to be able to try anything on top easily (steph’s suggestion). It’s starting to get cold out and the weather is so unpredictable, I put on my rubber boots to be safe (and had my change of shoes) so obviously when I left the office, I was dying in the warm 5:00 sun in my RUBBER boots. And today I didn’t bring an umbrella or boots so it’s probably going to pour when I leave work.
Oh Oh! I have a story about my nylons. I wanted polka dot ones for a while and I went into urban outfitters a few months back for another reason, saw they had them on the manequins. After spending a couple of minutes trying to go through the boxes on the wall (that are NOT organized and fall down when you move one to see what’s behind!!) I asked them if they could help me and find me a pair. They checked the back and after coming out and telling me there weren’t any in back but maybe upstairs, I assumed someone would help me look. Since by this time I was already at the damn cash, I asked the guy to put my glasses aside so I could just check quick upstairs. 5 billion hours later with no help from any sales person, my sister and I went through both racks and I think we found a pair with hearts that were something like 16 or 18 dollars and by that point I said SCREW THIS and cut in line to pay for my damn glasses (the guy gave me a “did you just cut in line?” look and I threw back a “shut the hell up, I already waited in line once” look). Fast forward a few weeks, I’m at the grocery store and going through the “other stuff” section, looking at nylons, fond this pair for something like 4$. In your face urban outfitters, that’s what you get when your clothes are overpriced and your service leaves much to be desired, now I remember why I only shop there once every 3 years.
Found out I got 80% on my photography class. This was pretty surprising considering I most likely failed the written exam. Yay for getting by on my looks! …wait what? I meant yay for doing really well on my project. Yeah that’s it.
