Yes, the tough are still shopping... [Sep. 1st, 2007|08:55 am]
[Tags|, ]

OK, so I had the large purse and I had the bathing suit and I even had the big old honkin' sunglasses.  So I thought I was all set. And then annie had to go and ask us all what we would be wearing. 

Wearing? Yikes! I completely forgot about actual clothing. I told her I'd be packing some capris and t-shirts. Only, I don't actually have any capris and t-shirts, or at least not any that don't look like the only reason I haven't donated them to Goodwill is because they aren't in good enough condition. I don't really have that much casual clothing, because when I come home from work I slap on some yoga pants (with holes in them) and an old shirt (with holes in it). The only time I wear casual clothes is on the weekend, so I tend to have about 3 choices and just wear them till they fall apart. Plus there's that whole between sizes thing.

So yesterday, after the whitewater calls calmed down (not because we fixed everything, but because everyone sneaked out early) I popped into Macy's, which is not only next door to my building but conveniently connected by a tunnel, and practiced a bit of retail therapy. 

Huzzah for end of season sales, markdown racks, and coupons! In less than an hour, I snagged $169 worth of stuff for only $43.60. There's nothing like getting a $69 pair of pants for $9 to make you feel better about breaking half your division's computer programs.

So now I don't have to be naked or holey in Vegas. Whew!

Sometimes being cheap pays off.

Oh, and the bathing suit I ordered is really cute, although I am taking the original one to Vegas because it's more comfortable. But I will definitely wear the Land's End one.

That's some mighty fine shopping, there! I'm impressed!

You know of course, you'll probably be the best dressed of the four of us. :)

Well, I did get this stuff off the markdown racks - which means it's the stuff that no one else wanted.

And you know annie is totally going to win at shoes.

I wish I could shop like you do. I want to go to Macy's now, cause I just know all the summer stuff is on mark down. Instead, I'm going to sit here and watch the grass grow.

I don't shop often, but when I do I really go overboard.
