ok, im SOO pissed off right now that i need to vent.. this is long and ranty:
my husband is an accountant. every year on april 15th his company throws an office party to celebrate the end of tax season (lame, i know but their accountants remember..) This year it's at a really trendy bar and i don't have any clothes that i felt were "cool" enough so i went to buy an outfit today. shopping is hard for me. it's always been hard and i've always had a hard time with body image so shopping is like an emotional rollercoaster, especially when i feel pressured to find something specific. even more so when im dragging my 2 year old along with me.
for some reason i decided to check out 'arden b' because that's sort of what i imagined would be right for this place even though i normally don't bother with that store. i fell in love with an off-the-shoulder black 80's top that has a removable pin and a pair of pink earrings, i couldn't believe i found it so fast! then i got a hot pink bra to wear under it since you see the straps, and pink heels to match. it already looked good with the jeans i had on so i was all set, in under an hour! then i got to the car and went to unpack my bags from the stroller and realized i lost my arden b shirt and bra. i went back and re-traced all my steps, all the while my daughters screaming because it's now naptime, and nothing...those two items set me back $90 that i dont have and now i want to scream! i know people all over the world are dying and this is a very small deal, but i seriously HATE days like this. it was such a cute outfit ;(
thanks for listening..
