Shopping takes patience and I have none. I tend to glance at racks and not dive in. I will just pick things because of the color or fabric. You can never see the cut as it's smooched with other things on the rack. My mother has endless patience when it comes to clothes shopping. She can look through every rack, move every hanger and not feel tired or overwhelmed. I for one can't do that and always end up complaining when I'm with her. It always starts with having to use the public restroom, then my feet get tired, and eventually I end up just about starving to death. I've learned to be the driver and pressure her in speed shopping. I know that sometimes she gets miffed, but I will not be a slave to her consumer drive.
Some stores I won't even attempt walking in with her, such as Ross. My local store is always in shambles and things are never placed where they should be. O.k., maybe I'm exaggerating but it does feel that way some times. I recently went and I did use the excuse that I need to go to Home Depot in the same shopping center to justify the whole excursion to the Bf. My theory is that you never now what you might find. Some days I will walk in and walk straight out with no purchases made. Others, I have to edit down all the things in my hands before I hit the registers.
My outfit of the day I'm wearing a lace tank that I purchased there. For only $8.00 I just couldn't pass it up. The good man the Bf is he didn't ask if Depot was the only place I went to that day. The boot cut jeans are a F21 purchased a couple of years ago and have been sitting in my closet since. For some reason in my head I was stocking up on boot cuts and wide legs, who knew it would pay off and the cuts were on the way back into style. It was in their Fabulous Finds section for less than $13.00. Of course I'm wearing my new JS shoes, which you'll probably get tired of before I do. I just love them so.
