pouffy sleeves?? who knew
It's been a freaking long time since you last actually enjoyed something you do throughout the day and you're beginning to be able to redraw the appearance of your bedroom in your head. *cue fun person intervention*
Okay.. so, sometimes times get tough and you have a lot to do. It's understandable that you would stay in, frequently, take some down time, and get stuff done. BUT.. when is too much down time.. really too much?
I was suffering from this downtime syndrome for the past week. I didn't even realize I had a problem until I was invited out for a day on the town. Well, considering this is Prince George... a day on the town consisted of travelling the 15 minute bus ride to the one and only mall.... WOOOO! But I was game non the less.
I've been reading a lot of fashion magazines lately (while on the eliptical machine... yah working out!) and I've noticed a lot of victorian blouses coming back into style. At first I thought.. haha, yah right.. weird! THEN... as I was enjoying my shopping experience in PG's one and only... I came across a rack of these such blouses. I began peaking through.. curious to see if anyone was noticing me. Was I weird for being attracted to such random fun??
However, I got over my silly fear when I saw one I liked. It was adorable. A cream colour, little clasps all up the front, almost like a corset. A somewhat flowery mesh pattern all over... without colour, just the cream. And it had slightly pouffy sleeves. It was cute.. but I mean.. pouffy sleeves.. me??? tres bizarre.
buuuuut, I got over myself and sucked it up. I tried it on.. I LOVED IT. it was adorable and would go fabulously with black dress pants or dark jeans.. ooooh how lovely. I was so excited... and, if I was feeling extra devious.. I could undo a few clasps in the front! VERSATILE! I was uber uber excited...
until i noticed the price tag. $40... oyi.. now, I know this sure doens't seem like a lot. but trust me, once you hit university.. where you're paying $13,000 for your stupid education.. money becomes an issue. Not only that.. I am quite the el cheapo! ask anyone who has ever shopped with me! sooo... to sadly finish the story... I did not purchase the amazing victorian blouse.
But I did get pants.. which I now realize are too tight and will not stretch to my stupid (but i love you) body. So now I must venture back down to the mall on Sunday to exchange those (damn the no return policy) sooooo.. im going to find some capri plaid dressy pants for work! woot woot! I love clothes
