Supergirl goes shopping

Today I woke up early and hit the core class at my gym, followed by a slow-flow yoga practice. Feeling refreshed, I chose to take on some shopping.

Unlike many women, I’m not a shopper. I’m awful at accesorizing and creating “outfits”. Also, being the frugal person I am, it’s hard for me to part with my money on expensive things like, you know, clothes. I prefer to spend my money in small, $20 amounts. But when I splurge, man do I splurge.

For this trip, I had an objective in mind, which always helps open the wallet. I wanted a cute skirt to wear to my fancy birthday dinner this weekend at Iridescence. In addition, I was interested in perhaps purchasing a cute dress to wear to one of the many weddings I have to attend this summer.

I started at Kohl’s thinking maybe I’d hit the jackpot with an excellent deal. I tried on a few things, but everything just looked like crap. That old adage, you get what you pay for, really hit home.

I was at Limited a few weeks ago and they had some cute dresses/skirts, but it was all ridiculously expensive (which really means it’s a perfectly reasonable price, but more than the $20 I think everything should be priced). This time though, I had a coupon and was more willing to part with cash because, like I said, I had an objective. I walked in and proceeded to take one of every dress and skirt they had on the racks. After a half hour of hemming and hawing alone in the dressing room, I left with these two fabulous dresses that I am beyond excited about.

I’ll be wearing this pinky-red number on Friday for my romantic birthday dinner (identifying facial features have been cropped out to protect the anonymous):

And I’m planning to wear this long, flowy and completely flattering dress to my cousin’s rehearsal dinner in August (perhaps also to another wedding along the way):

I can’t wait! I also ran by Old Navy and stocked up on some essential summer tops and grabbed a Father’s Day present. So overall, the objective was accomplished and I once again feel like a girl who knows how to shop. My credit card, on the other hand, feels like a pathetic, used piece of plastic that’s been swiped more than it cares to be in a 24 hour time span.
