A few things...
First of all I would like to warn you that I will be away for a week starting this Saturday. I am giving you warning lest someone
freaks out. The husband and I are visiting my mom in the Poconos. We will be doing a whole lot of nothing. She does have internet access, but it's dial-up, so no late night chat sessions.
A couple of days ago I went to Loehmann's
with a friend. It's one of those stores that sells designer clothes for less. I think the idea is that they get the stuff that isn't selling, because 95% of the clothing is UGLY. Half the fun of going to these types of stores is making fun of the clothes.
Case in point:
This was an outfit we put together. It was a lime green prom dress made out of some horrible fabric. I don't even know what is was, but it was worse than polyester. If someone actually wore this dress on prom night no boys would want to rub against them for fear of chafing. And isn't that what the prom is all about? Rubbing against each other?
Anyway, it had some sort of lattice pattern on it and some knockoff rhinestones. I didn't know that you could knock off rhinestones, but whomever manufactured this dress accomplished it.
The best part about the dress is that it succeeds in making me look about 60 pounds heavier than I really am. Lindsay Lohan would have looked fat in this dress. Exactly what every high school girl is looking for in her prom dress.
We then noticed the lovely fluorescent green jacket made of feathers, and we thought it really pulled the whole ensemble
together. I happened to look at the price tag on the jacket. It was originally $300, reduced to $90. BARGAIN!
We forgot to look at the price tag on the dress. I'm sure it was a steal.
We kept repeating to each other "I can't believe people actually BUY these things!"
Lastly, I would like to wish a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Jessica Rabbit
Thank you for being such a great friend. You are always there to listen to me complain, and you always give me good advice. I admire your confidence and bravery, and I strive to be more like you. Anyone who has you in their life is lucky, especially your children.
Seriously, leave me a message! .
