My Shopping Spree



Joseph had a playdate on Friday morning so I decided to take Justin on a little shopping trip. I am in desperate need of jeans and I decided to take a couple pair of jeans that are just a little too tight to try to sell at Plato's Closet. If you haven't heard of this place you've got to check it out. They buy and sell gently used brand name clothing. I kind of feel like an idiot going in there because it's for teenagers. As soon as I walk in the door I feel out of place. I just imagine the kids behind the counter laughing at the old mom in the dressing room who comes in here trying in vain to still look cool. I'm hauling Justin around in his infant seat and trying not to listen to the lyrics of the horrible rap music they're playing way too loud. But once I get over this part, I totally scored! They gave me $10 for my jeans, and I got a pair of Gap jeans for $15 and Silver Jeans for $20. So, yes, I walk out the door with 2 pairs of jeans for $25! You can't beat that.

So the other picture is again, this old mom trying to still be cool. I needed some new sunglasses and I was tring to branch out and get some with big lenses. This is the only style they had at Target so I'm assuming it is still in fashion. Anyway, I'm feeling all good about my fashion-forward purchase until I got home. I put them on for Darren and he laughed at me! So I need some girly validation or brutal honesty. Please place your vote in the poll to the right. Thanks!

I laughed at, "...I'm assuming it is still in fashion..." It's hard to keep up, huh?

Please...Darren laughs at your fashion choices? I'm just waiting for the last letter on his high school baseball t-shirt to fall off.

Anyway, SCORE on the jeans! And, I think the sunglasses look good on you and I'm so jealous of you for being so brave to branch out. It's hard for me to embrace certain fashions, and big glasses are one of them...but they really look good, and they're not too big at all.

You go girl.

YEA, new jeans! That's always exciting! I never get new jeans because I refuse to put in the time & effort to go and find them! I like the sunglasses, I was thinking just the other day that I need to try and do the big sunglasses thing. Tell Darren that he doesn't know what he is talking about!

Love the new glasses. Big is in so you can't go wrong with those glasses. They are totally cool. (Not that I know because I am an out of fashion mom myself). And SCORE on the jeans... Preston would LOVE it if I could come home with 2 pairs of jeans for that price! ;)
