boo shopping

August 16, 2007 Comments off

I tried to go shopping today, looking for some casual-yet-not-too-casual dresses, because I like wearing dresses. It took me a while to find the right section in Macy’s, the section with all the less-expensive, somewhat trendy dresses, and when I did, I was stunned.

When did it become 1976?

Seriously—Pucci prints, diagonal stripes, PIPING for goodness’s sake! Brown and blue together, red and black and cream with bell-shaped sleeves…holy moly, why didn’t I hold on to those dresses of my mom’s? I could be in style without spending a cent!

OK, OK, it’s not all that bad. Maybe I’m just bitter because it seems that someone else exactly my size has already bought up all the cute dresses in our size. Because there were certainly no dresses in my size in the store today.
