the price of cheap

There comes a point in every woman's life when she finds herself in a Walmart dressing room, actually believing that the clothes look cute on her, and is forced to ask the question: Did Walmart change....or did I?

There is no good answer to this question. But if you see me in a turquoise top, just say, "Is that J.Crew? It looks fantastic on you."

Did you go to Sams yet? Oh and I washed the jacket (like you warned me not to do) and it's sort of rumply and not so cute anymore. Dang it!

There also comes a time in every woman's life when she doesn't even attempt the dressing room anymore. She takes her purchases home, hoping that it does indeed fit (and look just as good on as it did on the plastic hanger) and braces herself for the shameful return.
Also: Turquoise (not red or black)? Nice expanding those horizons, Karin! =) We need a girls night out (again) soon & sport our Wal-Mart fashion choices!

loved hanging out at lunch with you today. totally digging our lunches! good idea, right?

AND Walmart has BRAS two for $5.33. And they do look good on me!! :)
(Sometimes though, just walk away. Did I tell you about the cute A-line khaki skirt I saw there, only to look for it in my size and find it to be a SKORT?!?! True story.)
