I spent a lovely day shopping with my mom yesterday. It was a much needed retail therapy day!
My cousin is getting married on Friday so I had to find a dress and shoes. What I learned on this shopping trip was to try on everything, whether you like it or not. I tried on everything that I really liked and found one I liked but they didn’t have my size anywhere in the city and I found one that was okay.
We went back to the racks and picked out everything I could find in my size and the employees kept bringing me anything and everything in my size. I narrowed it down to two lace dresses, which I loved and then ne of the sales ladies brought me a dress I didn’t like the look of, but I tried it anyway. That very last dress I tried on, that I absolutely did not like at all, was the one I ended up loving and buying! It is an off the shoulder bright royal blue knee length dress. Not sure if it is formal enough for a formal fall wedding but I look amazing in it so I don’t care! With a great pair of spanx and a gorgeous pair of earrings we went on a search for shoes.
I tried a bunch of silver shoes but I wasn’t finding anything that I really liked. I decided to try nude shoes, another thing I didn’t think I would like! I found the most comfortable pair of nude pumps at Payless for $25, score! Not a huge fan of the toe shape but I love how comfy they are.
With my outfit bought we decided we needed some fall tops. We headed to Winners where I found 5 new tops!! Mom didn’t have as much luck, only finding one top, so we headed to Marshalls. I found the cutest little booties, mom found a cute blue pair of loafers and another top. I’d say we had a successful shopping day.
It is amazing what a little retail therapy can do for your mood. I even went through my closet and finally purged clothes that I’ve have for 9+ years! I hate getting rid of anything but when there’s a layer of dust on top of them, it’s time to let go!
