Tonight I'm going shopping with a few girl friends, one of whom would like some wardrobe encouragement in efforts to impress a certain boy. So exciting! I've had a bit of a wardrobe overhaul myself. A few weeks ago it became blatantly obvious that my wardrobe is boring. I only have a few tops that are cute enough for wearing out on the social scene and my jeans are way too boxy to be terribly cute. In the last couple of weeks I've managed to spruce up the ol' wardrobe!
Jeans are a problem for everyone. They are made to fit no one. I tried on 8 pair at Macy's, 8 pair at GAP and didn't even bother at The Limited.
Dear Clothes Buyer at The Limited,
I didn't bother to try on jeans at your store. First, they were $70 a pair which was discouraging enough. But really...did you have to put a giant button on the butt pockets? No matter the size of a girl's tush, did you really think it was a good idea to draw attention to it with a button? Really?

So just when I was about to give up, Old Navy pulled through! Old Navy of all places! I haven't had Old Navy jeans since high school. Mostly because their jeans have notoriously been made for girls in high school. So now I am happy with some jeans and cute tops. Missing from this picture is a pair of shoes. Ballet flats just don't seem to cut it in a club or a bar. I need some shoes that say, "this girl means business!" I need shoes I can walk in, but just barely. I don't want blisters, but I do want shoes that look like they might give me blisters.
Tonight will be all about my friend dressing to impress a certain boy. She wants cute jeans. Not sure what else, but I'm sure we'll manage to find a few hot items for her. Maybe just maybe I'll find a pair of shoes while we're out too! This is going to be fun!
