I honestly don't know why I don't ONLY go there for clothes. The prices yesterday were amazing, all the things I found were 50-70% off ticketed prices, and just having been to the mall, I had an idea of what I was looking at for once. I hate shopping and getting there on a week day near opening time with a plan, the place is empty! I can't believe I don't shop here more, it was pretty painless actually and I hate shopping. I feel like I don't know what I'm supposed to do. Yes there women who don't like shopping. When I do go, I somehow do a good job. I had a big score yesterday: from American Eagle I got jeans (AE only had 1 pair in any wash in my size/stykle), 4 polo shirts and a pretty print tee shirt in a trendy loose fit, 2 sweatpants and yoga pants from GAP (insane GAP sale right now 50-70%), 2 sweatshirts and 2 tee shirts from GAP, a sleek looking zip up magenta running jacket from North Face stylish and in this years bold Magenta-that was the workout clothes splurge since I couldn't find good long hiking pants. I also scored the essential simple black Cardigan at Banana Republic! I really should have bought a white one too at that price, but it was the end of the day and I was feeling weighed down with the responsibility of paying for my charges and decided to get one. I do tend to go shopping all at once and replace everything I need as my old stuff falls apart. I don't shop often, and wear my clothes for years so I tend to have to do these grand wardrobe filling trips, helps that I never have to shop using this method except for every few years. Maybe as I lose weight I'll be a more gradual with adding new pieces to my wardrobe instead of spending the entire $300 in one trip, sale or not, it's still $300 added to my credit card!
Wow, that's a big paragraph about shopping. Now you won't see me blog about shopping for clothes until 2014. The fluff weigh from after vacation eating and that time of month is going away. I was 175 this morning. I'm a little calmer now about the explosion last week. Especially since the clothes were fitting. North Face runs absurdly small I noticed yesterday as well. Everything else was pretty much a normal size. Time for breakfast, I'm getting hungry.
