Adventures in Shopping

This morning I wore a new outfit to work.  Many people have commented on the beautiful purple color, which I prefer to call "Plum."  This is something, because most of the people I work with are men.  I know it's an unfair generalization, but here it is:  men don't pay attention to clothing!

Here is what happened.  Thursday night Briana and I were home alone. I needed to pick up some muslin at the fabric store, and I asked Bri if she wanted to go.  While we were there I remembered that I needed something at Robert's, so we went there next.  As we were leaving Robert's, I decided to make a stop in at Dress Barn.

Those of you who know me well know that I don't like to shop.  So you will believe me when I tell you that this was a pre-meditated stop.  I hadn't planned on doing it right then, but I had considered doing some shopping for a couple of weeks.  Briana was flabbergasted that I was going to walk into a clothing store.  She was also excited!  Pretty soon she was handing me stuff to try on left and right.  A rather large sum of money and an hour later, we walked out of the store. 

The outfit I'm wearing today includes a sweater, a skirt, a necklace, earrings, and a bracelet.  Briana pretty much chose all of it, but I love it, too.  It makes me feel cute and fashionable, but still professional.  There are a few other items that we also picked up, and I will use those in the coming weeks.

Sorry no pictures.  I'm cute, but not THAT cute.  :)
