I hate shopping. Well, I like shopping for my home. And I like food shopping. But I really, really hate shopping for clothes. Which works out well because I’ve worked from home for four years, so I haven’t really had to buy much (except running gear!).
However, my upcoming trip to NYC for the book release necessitated that I actually go buy some ‘professional’ clothing. Taking some advice from my Twitter friends, I simply walked into Banana Republic, threw up my arms in desperation, and yelped “DRESS ME” to the nearest sales rep.
I’ve got some great stuff now, but I want to go back and return a necklace and a belt that I don’t really need. Actually – what do you think? Do you love or hate this necklace on me (I realize this is probably a very divisive piece of jewelry)?
I think I’m leaning towards a return…
Are you a woman (or man) who loves to shop? Or are you like me and cannot stand it? I and feel overwhelmed easily in clothing stores, so it’s rarely a fun experience!
While shopping, I grabbed some Fro-Yo. It was the least I could do for myself!
“Dinner” was kind of lame… A peanut butter and strawberry sandwich:
Then, I went on a run. I did 6.0 moderately paced miles in 1:05 with Emma and Lauren. It was great fun! I love having buddies to run with.
And then I ate an apple:
Off to shower off this sweat!
Good night. 🙂
Hurrah for buying more professional clothing! Shopping at Banana is fun – I miss having a traditional job because I loved perusing their sales rack on a semi-regular basis for dress slacks…
I’d say the necklace is nice, but at least knowing me, I tend to get a little hot when I’m wearing such a big necklace on days where I have to be presentable somewhere….
