This morning, on what has become a weekly trip to Target, I took a detour through the women’s clothes to see if their swim suits were marked down enough for me to buy a couple for next year. They were not.
I have amazing peripheral vision. Really, I’m not kidding. I think my eyeballs are shaped really spherically or something because I can almost see behind me. Or maybe my peripheral vision isn’t actually better than anyone else and I just choose to actually take note of those little somethings seen out of the corner of my eye.
Well, today I saw a pattern that appealed to me and so I approached to find a dress on the clearance rack with a price tag of $3.76. From what I can surmise, the dress was bought online and returned to the store and they didn’t know how to price it because it was an “Online Only” item.
I didn’t try it on because I didn’t have time and for $3.76, even if I only wear it once, I’ll kind of feel like it was worth it. I got it home, tried it on and immediately can see why it was returned. The dress is not flattering. At least not on me. The more I looked at myself in the mirror, the more I thought I was resembling June Cleaver. Hmmm…not a good look for me.I’m going to wear it out – I have to at least once. Can I just say that I did not notice the puffy sleeves when I bought it. That may have been a deal breaker. I do not like puffy sleeves even on my 5 year old daughter. Also, sorry about the lack of makeup. I do not see a need for it on most days – immediately eliminating me from the Mrs. Cleaver roll.
