Happy Sunday friends! How's your weekend going? J and Gus left today for Saskatchewan to do flooring job and visit J's sister, so I'm home all by my lonesome. I was feeling a little blue, a little bored and yes, a little lonely. So I decided to fix myself up with the best remedy I know...retail therapy!
Forever 21 just opened yesterday in our little town and it's a pretty big deal. I know I'm not 21, far from it, but I decided to brave the crowds to check out some cute accessories and see what's what. In order to feel worthy of grand store opening, I needed grand store opening hair...without having to wash it! (you know I hate that on the weekends!) So I decided to try a new hair tutorial recommended by lovely reader Rebecca of A Daily Something for the messy high SJP bun - check it out here! Fancy shmancy for a Sunday, dontcha' think? I felt very glamourous towering over the tweens at Forever 21.
So about that, I was definitely one of the older gals there (other than moms) but I was reassured to see a few other thirtysomething faces in the crowd! And then, my world literally exploded when I saw that Forever 21 had a plus size section (I'm normally a 14-16 so I can usually get away with regular sizing but Forever 21 wants to knock my self esteem down a notch - thanks...).
Eureka! I tried to wipe the giddy smile off my face as I dove into the racks of $27 dresses. So awesome! I killed my feet and back waiting in ultra long change room and check out lines, but I'm happy to have found some adorable summer dresses at amazing prices. They're a little bold for me, but I love the and their vivid prints so I'm just going to have to suck up my nervousness and enjoy wearing them!
Here's a peek at my score:
Have you started spring shopping yet? What's on your wish list friends?
