I’m one of those people who rarely buys new clothes and when I do it’s usually some random top from dirty old Kmart that costs about 10 bucks. I am also guilty of never trying anything on – it’s such a nuisance to venture to the change rooms and really, who’s got time for that? When I get home, my new purchases go straight to my walk-in-robe to be hung up for me to then forget that I ever bought them. When I do remember I bought something new and go to wear it, sometimes it fits; sometimes it doesn’t. But if it doesn’t, I don’t return it because a. it’s only cost me a tenner and b. I’ve already ripped off the swing tag and thrown away the receipt.
Yesterday, I was at the shops and while hubby was ordering us a takeaway coffee, I nipped into Kmart and within the space of literally five minutes, I had spent a massive total of $33 and walked out with four tops. Thanks Big K!
Now, the weird thing is: all four tops are black and white. One is black with white stripes; one’s a singlet-type black top with white crosses on it; and two are white tops with black stripes. What’s up with that?
I’m going to see Robbie Williams tonight (swoon!) I’m a lover of anything music and I’ll go to just about any concert – I’m convinced I have an addiction. My girlfriends and I are in the SuperPit (!) which is SuperClose so we may even be able to touch him! Eek!
Now, I’m too old and shit to be dressing up when going out. I’m over the peacocking stage where it’s all glitz and glamour. In fact, I don’t know if I was EVER at that stage. These days it’s comfort all the way baby! So it’s jeans, one of my new black and white tops (if any of them fit), a top knot and either Vans or my wedges (we’re heading out after for drinks). It’s going to be superhot in the SuperPit so I’m going to be prepared for a bit of elbow argy-bargy if some bitches get handsy!
So, what I’m saying is, is that at my age (let’s just say I’m closer to 38 than 37), I’m not one for designer labels and spending a fortune. You can make any outfit work regardless of the price and where you bought it. And if all else fails, chuck on a smile and head out the door.
Until next time,
