I broke my Don’t Buy Anything Ever rule and went shopping!! 😀 I did need to buy pants, because I’ve gotten a little chubbier, and I only had one pair of pants that fit comfortably. And those were pretty huge and had a big hole in them. This all came to a head when I had my job interview yesterday. I didn’t have a nice pants or nice shirt to wear. I ended up wearing some pants that were really tight and uncomfortable, and a button-up girls shirt. So I decided it was best to go shopping. I went to Goodwill first, because the last time I went to a thrift store I found awesome things, like overalls. A lot of my favorite clothes were used. The pants I got there were a little small though. They will fit great after I work out more. I got a few pairs of shorts too, because I really don’t have any shorts that fit, which sucks in the summer and in California. I got a button up shirt. It was plaid and short-sleeved, so not the best. But it was nice and super cheap. I also had to get socks. They were a dollar a pair! Two are argyle, and two look like they’re shoes! I walked around to see if there was anything else awesome, and I found — wait for it — sparkly leopard print Chucks! And fire Chucks. It couldn’t be helped, I had to get them. I also got a Hershey’s bar in line. I spent about $30 in total.
Since I couldn’t find good pants that fit right, and no good shirts, I went over to Kohl’s. Things were so much more expensive there! I got some Tony Hawk pants that came with a belt. They fit great on my waist, didn’t look like I was wearing pants that were too big for me, could be rolled up to my knees without looking weird, and can be worn with Chucks. Perfect!! And they were 60% off. I also kinda stole a belt. It was on another pair of pants and red and black check. *shame* I then went to the boys’ section to see about nice shirts. I was going to get a white or blue one, but then I saw the combo shirt tie things. There was a black shirt with a pink clip on tie. As with everything else I bought, it couldn’t be helped. I also got some underwear at Kohl’s. That’s what I always end up running out of before I do laundry. I got some soft briefs, because the ones I have now are a little small and I wanted more for running. And I got soft comfy patterned boxers. I spent over $60 and bought so much less than I did at Goodwill. Ah whatever.
Then, since I was already buying things, I drove all the way across town and got myself some bigger gauge earrings. They’re wooden spirals. $36
