A long time ago, I had closet gremlins. They shrank and stretched all the clothing in my closet – it had nothing to do with me gaining a bit of weight! 😛 Spring was quickly becoming Summer, and I discovered that I had nothing to wear in the all too near humid future. A quick trip to the shops made me gag – prices were sky high and it baffled my brain (and made my bank manager cry)!
Returning home back then, and seeing this on Facebook, made me laugh so hard I think my dog was considering having me committed.
A few years down the line and I still have closet gremlins – but they appear to have expanded their business and are now in my drawers too. This time, while I was sleeping, they didn’t just shrink my clothing. This time, they came with religion and I discovered a few items that are now HOLeY.
Some of you know how very much I dislike shopping. Yes, last time I checked I was definitely female. I’m just not big on malls and endless hours spent in them.
I go, out of necessity.
And although not quite at emergency status yet, I decided to pop across to the mall close by which has ample parking, is never really too busy, and also sports some of the better priced options.
I’m a little shy to be admitting this, but I needed new underwear (those gremlins really were in my drawers 😛 ) And since I am the only one who actually sees me in my underwear, it should have been a simple visit. I know my size, and I don’t need anything fancy.
I have a young teen as a daughter, and so I am not completely oblivious to the variety out there when it comes to clothing, shoes, underwear etc. I am pretty much ‘kept in the loop’ as to which shop stocks what and what’s trending. Sadly this does not affect my fashion views – I have decided I am too old to wear what is cool, and I prefer to stick with what makes me comfortable.
(Side note : I am not old. Not really, anyway. But I like that I am at an age where I can use this as an excuse when I want to 😉 )
Thanks to knowledge gained from my kid, I knew where it was that I wanted to go.
So I headed straight there, walked in and found exactly what I wanted. Easy peasy. Looking at the price tag, not so easy. Seriously?!?!?! You want me to pay how much for this small piece of material? Is it sewn with gold thread? Have you hidden a diamond in the lining?
