Hell is a shopping mall...

For the benefit tomorrow night the theme is "Spring Fever", and the Tutian ladies are wearing sundresses. I don't own a sundress - so I decided to go out on my lunch break to try to find one.

Can I tell you how much I hate shopping...particularly for clothes or shoes? Gods...could I be less feminine?!?!

I went up and down State street and saw very few things that even appealed to me. My sense of fashion (or lack thereof) is never in sync with what is trendy. I finally found one dress that looks sort of okay on me (and has lots of peacocky teal in it...which I adore) so (despite the price tag) I decided to buy it.

After waiting in line for much longer than should be expected of anyone - I gave up and put the dress back on the rack. I went to two other shops to try things on (all of which looked vomitous on me). I became crabby, and tried very hard not to have judgment about my fellow shoppers, all of whom were driving me crazy!

Defeated, I went back for the teal number, and waited 25 minutes for them to ring me up. So here I am, $64 and a lifetime later. This dress best make me look drop-dead stunning, or it is not EVEN worth it. This dress should do my dishes and rub my feet to be worth itself....

Did I mention how much I hate shopping?

I am so with you on the detestation of shopping. The last time I went seriously shopping, I wound up with a dress that I've worn once (this is why I try to never, ever buy anything that's obviously dry-clean only; I wear it once and then it sits in a bag for ages and waits woefully for me to take it to a dry cleaners) and a pair of shoes that I've worn twice, and I think it took me a month or two to find those in the first place. Ugh, ugh, blech.

Sounds like quite a disappointment of a lunch break. But I'm glad you did find something eventually.

I'm with you on dry cleaning...those items are more of a burden to me than a blessing and I too avoid buying "dry clean only". I am a bit better with hand wash items...but in general try to buy clothes that are made for lazy people like me!

Can we see pictures of you in the long-awaited, much-earned dress? (: Then we can tell you how incredible you look and you'll know it was worth it.

I hate shopping also--too spoiled by buying online. I have yet to figure out what I am wearing to my great-niece's christening next weekend. I'm hoping I can scrounge up something without having to set foot in a store.
