I am going to talk about the topics I touched on last night . . . but not tonight.
Earlier tonight, I went shopping for jeans, a blue shirt and boots–with a heel!–to wear with the jeans. This shopping excursion went against everything I stand for. For one, I started at Nordstroms where I actually accepted the salesgirl’s offer of help. I told her what I needed and she helped me pick out six pairs of jeans to try on. (Normally, I shop the clearance rack at Marshall’s.)
I’m just glad that the jeans that looked the best weren’t the ones that cost $158! I settled on a baby blue cable-knit sweater after trying on a dozen shirts in various shades of blue. I purchased clothing at full-price. (Ack!)
Then, I went to Macy’s where I ignored my instincts to pick comfortable shoes, flat shoes, shoes with rubber soles . . . and bought a pair of boots, kind of like these. I bought them specifically to go with the long jeans. (At least they were twenty bucks off.)
Why? Good question. On Saturday, I have a photo shoot (with a “blue color palette.”) That’s why I was desperate to get my hair cut and highlighted . . . I will be posing for pictures. This freaks me out, especially in light of this post by Quinn Cummings who recently endured a photo shoot. I have actively avoided cameras for the past fifteen years, but I am willingly driving to Seattle and wearing heels on boots to have my picture taken.
Clearly, I’ve lost my mind.
Also, I’ve lost 48.4 pounds as of today.
