Just after Christmas I headed to the mall to spend my money on some new clothes. I found this rockin’, traffic cone orange shirt at Mimi. And I got it on sale. I didn’t try it on but when I got home…I immediately whipped it on – PERFECT. Score one for moi!
Friday evening, as I am getting ready for our trip to Benihana, I notice that the seam is coming apart. I was crushed. This was the only medium they had. I called the store and they said I could come in and get something else.
Today – after dropping Avery at her playdate – I headed to the mall. Of course the only one left was a large. POOP! So I scoured the racks, looking for something that was even half as awesome as my tattered orange shirt. There was plenty of SPRING stuff in the store – all new since the last time I had been in. But with 12″ of new snow on the ground, it just didn’t seem right. I even looked on the triple reduced clearance rack. No luck. I was defeated. So I went to the sales associate and meekly stated that I wanted a store credit and I’d come back another time.
Just then…from the front of the store…I hear “I FOUND ONE! A MEDIUM!” And the bubbly sales clerk who tried so hard to help me find a replacement shirt came running to me. ALAS – there was a medium in my orange shirt. And I walked out with a spring in my step.
Should I model it for you? Ok……here it is.
To celebrate I made a trip through Sephora and then down to Starbucks for a Toffee Nut (Decaf) Latte. Yum.
