Once upon a time I was really into clothes. I was always in New York & Company and enjoyed buying shoes (important to add, reasonably priced shoes). I was never shoe crazy but they didn't make me sad. I liked dressing for work. However, when money got tight, clothes was one of the first things that got caught, and I slowly stopped caring as much. Slowly clothes turned from more!!!! to meh!
I'm making a concerted effort to do better with clothes, to care more even when I'm on a budget. A super duper budget. A piece here a bargain there, to get my wardrobe back from warlock to wooohoooo.
I've never been into dresses. Partially because I sit like a boy, partially because I'm not at all a girl girl. At all. Today, Jethro and I celebrated our anniversary today, and I decided to look the part. Which means I BOUGHT A DRESS!!!!!
(Side story, I went to find a picture at this dress and I thought I found it. Then I clicked on the bad boy and it said MATERNITY!!! I was upset. I have a pleasant dress experience and it turns out it was a damn MATERNITY dress!?!?!?! No wonder it was comfy. Then I got mad and had to find the tag and it didn't say maternity, and the tag in the dress doesn't say maternity but I was still annoyed. I searched and searched for it. Then I saw a note that said the maternity was only available online. Whew.)
And I enjoyed wearing it. Sure I had to be super conscious when getting out of the car, but it wasn't bad at all.
Maybe I'll do this more often.
