Last night I went to a fall fashion show at this little boutique store with a girlfriend. Leggings are back (not the ones with the stirrups thank god) and there’s no way I’m reverting back to the 80’s with those just for fall! The sizes were mostly for JR’s, so I tried on jeans – size 5, no luck, fit everywhere else but the length and waist (as usual), I could put a hardcover book back there with a belt. A turquoise top that I had to pull from behind so my bra wouldn’t show in the front, 1 ivory and brown dress, that because I have a long torso I needed to wear something under it that’s how short it was, (yes, it was meant to be worn with leggings) had that not been the problem it would have been perfect with my brown boots, a jersey olive green bubble dress (where the elastic is at your legs) came to mid thigh..no way would I ever wear it because I couldn’t sit down in it! The whole ‘bubble’ concept baffles me. And last but not least, a wool trench, that was red, blue, yellow, plaid colors that I grabbed in a medium, thinking get a larger size because for fall and winter the clothes are bulkier (layers, sweaters). With the 10% off coupon for attending the show that would have been my purchase had they had a SMALL!
For the night I spent $8 on a salad I had for dinner, a $1 on a raffle ticket, and we got free stuff in the goodie bag for attending. The leopard print ballet shoes were calling me, but not loud enough.
