a christmas miracle.

i found an outfit for tuesday. not just any outfit, but THE perfect outfit....not without help from my dear friend nancy....(what is tuesday??? you're dying to know. all 3 of you. more on that later...hint? WINNING again. it's getting old. i know)....

apologies to my girls for the de-ja-vu....yes, this is exactly what i posted on our board, but it sums it up perfectly and....without further ado...(adue?)

 i went to the mall with such low hopes today. in fact, i went to DSW first even though i didn't need shoes just to procrastinate...i was there for an HOUR. i did get some really cute sandals though....




so now i have this vision in my head of a flowy, chiffon, flowered maxi dress in shades of ivory, brown, peach, pink, yellow and green with the denim jacket and my new shoes....


well. you HAVE to know that that outfit doesn't exist in reality.


i'm a stupid shopper. the way i shop (because i am afraid of facing reality, i think) is that even if i find something really great at the first store, i won't even try it on. i will just make a mental note of it and keep looking for the PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT THING (that doesn't exist....or does it?) so i go to EVERY store in the GD mall, getting increasingly deflated and stressed the fuck out, buying things for ben and crying on the inside....after i have been at the mall for 3 hours, i will just finally give up and head back to the car, hanging my head and ready to eat arsenic....


today was pretty much like that except on my way back to the car, i glanced back at banana republic ( i never go in there because it is too expensive but i made myself go in today on the first round because i had to look at EVERY store just in case) and the little voice said "what about that black dress you saw when you first got here?" and i thought "*sigh* it is going to SUCK, they will only have size XSP" but i went in anyway.....found an XL, dragged it off the rack and walked to the dressing room trying not to make eye contact with all the people staring at me and thinking " that dress is going to look awful on her" (this really goes on in my head)....


LO AND BE-FREAKIN HOLD....first of all, the dress was PERFECT but better yet, the XL was too big!!!!!!!!!!! *faint*. i got re-dressed, smiling like a fool and practically skipped back to the rack...i found a L (miracle!) and skipped back to the dressing rooms. perfect. perfectperfectperfect! AND, original price = $130 marked down to $89, on sale for 40% off that price!!!!!!!!!

what the hell?

here it is! it is the SOFTEST cotton jersey and you can't really see int he pic, but the top has an unfinished chiffon edge. it is SO flattering and it feels like pijamas. i want to pinch myself!



i tried on a jacket at AE and i think it was too cropped. i need about 3 more inches on the length (that's juniors sizing). it was a GOOD jacket, but it hit right at my real waist and that's a bad place to hit with hips like mine so i am back to the drawing board for a denim jacket....i also need a statement necklace and to decide what bag to bring but.....uh...my dress? is KILLER.

you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(omg WHAT is happening tuesday? my fandom is coming unglued, i know....hint #2? this loud morning ....it's a BIG day y'all....and i'ma be a part of it!!!)
