Here is a great example of my impulsive shopping habits. I saw a sign saying 3 sweater dresses for $10.00. I immediately thought “SCORE!” I love sweater dresses and this winter is mild enough for me to wear them and how can I possibly lose for $10.00?!?
So, the day before the CHADD Conference, images of me in my great new sweater dress (on the left) with my new boots will make me look like someone fairly well pulled together. OMG! How delusional was I?
Reality set in when I got dressed, and if that one on the left is a sweater dress I am a freakishly tall woman! It’s a dumb ole tunic:( I wore my lycra skinny jeans underneath, with my boots, completely messing up the image of myself that I had in my head. I was very annoyed with myself.
Now, taking this picture of all three, I can plainly see that the red one is the only actual sweater dress, although some might argue that the middle one, striped, is as well, I assure you that a woman of my age should not consider wearing any kind of dress that short:) Because, you know, there are children that might see you.
Still, one bright red, short-sleeved sweater dress for $10.00 is not a loss is it?
Well, I guess I probably have to actually wear it to justify that statement.
Heavy sighs happening over here.
