It all started innocently enough... I was having lunch with a friend. How much trouble could I possibly get in??? It was a fabulous lunch, full of laughs and good company (and the most decadent grilled cheese sandwich ever!) As we were leaving my friend said the words that will stay with me, haunting me forever...... “Hey, let’s go into Anthropologie.” “No problem,” I thought.” I can go in there... The store is great for window shopping, but I rarely find anything that looks good on me.” Ohhhhhh... if only I had known. My desire to actually interact with real human beings instead of sitting in front of my computer all day must have clouded my mind. I started picking up piece after piece... I grabbed my booty and headed to dressing room. Great.... No big surprise in there. Most of the stuff looked awful on me. And then I tried on the top that sent all sanity completely out of my head. A simple little top really. Probably no more that a yards worth of fabric in the whole thing. But it fit so beautifully. I held my breath as I looked at the price tag.
I looked again. And again. It was obvious I have not been out shopping in regular priced “trendy” shops in a very long time. What was I thinking??? I started reasoning with myself... “You've been working really hard... You deserve this... You haven’t bought yourself anything new in at least 2 months. I’m doing my patriotic duty and feeding the economy. (That’s the excuse I’ll give my husband if he ever finds out...) And so... I decided to buy the top. My friend had an appointment to get to, so she had to leave. (Traitor) She should have known better than to leave me in a clothing store unattended. “I’ll just look around a little more...” I thought innocently to myself. (Yeah, right)
First, I hit the sale rack where I found the cutest sweater. I know I will not be able to wear it for at least 8 months, but I couldn’t resist. Then I found another adorable top with the prettiest shabby roses all around the neckline. Before I could talk myself out of it, I grabbed my items and RAN to the counter to check out. (I won’t tell you how much each item cost, mostly out of self preservation should my darling sweet wonderful husband ever read this post.) But I will tell you, I have completely and utterly lost my mind!!!! This is what happens when you don’t get out of the house enough!!!!
Of course, I do LOVE my new tops, and now I’m going to need to make sure I get out once in a while so I can wear them!!!
