Shopping! Bye bye $$$

OK, I’ve spent about a bazillion dollars on clothes in the last couple of weeks. I finally went to David’s Bridal in Torrance, which is kind of ghetto and not really all that fun to drive to. I fitted and ordered my halter top, skirt and shoes for my little sister’s wedding in October. I can pick them up in August, I have no idea why this takes so long, apparently this hot stuff is in demand and in short supply?

The dress is actually chocolate brown, not black, so use your imagination. The ribbons on those kicky little shoes will be brown to match. My cousin picked out the shoes, I am not a big fan for 4 reasons: 1) there is a heel 2) there is no ankle strap to keep them on my feet 3) bow – pretty self explanatory 4) so narrow I had to order a size 10 so I feel like a freakish bigfoot. But hey, at least the rest of the getup isn’t hideous! I just hope I don’t fall.

Last Saturday I spent 6 hours shopping for clothes for work and my vacation (less than 2 weeks away!) and a swimsuit. Why is it that when you go shopping with some specific things in mind all you can find are more of the things that you already have? At Target I found about 6 different cute skirts that I wanted to buy, but I have no shortage of skirts so I made myself buy only 2. I have the rather fortunate problem of having lost weight and not knowing what size I am anymore. Apparently my bottom is about 2 full sizes smaller than my top now. You can imagine what this translates to when you’re searching high and low for suitable swim wear. I finally did find a tankini that will do. I hope the top is as secure as I thought it was in the dressing room, otherwise I will have a hilarious/mortifying story to tell about playing beach volleyball or something.

Jason is leaving for China with his momma on Thursday! I’m going to miss him but I’m also very excited for him. All this traveling is pretty exciting, I can’t wait for vacation!

Lovely, lovely dress. Chocolate colour is so nice. (Reminds me of cute chocolate labrador retrievers!)
