Labor Day Sales

Scott and I set off for a miserable mall excursion today. The agenda: white clothes, whatever we could find. Of course, he was looking for work shirts, and I had my eye out for anything special. I really hate mall shopping. It's generally a pretty miserable experience. But this time we ended up spending less than $30 each for some pretty full bags of clothes. Scott caught a clearance sale at J.C.P and got 4 short-sleeve shirts for work (ok, 3 for work and a white one). We then hit about 5 other stores, finding nothing for me but white capri pants with tacky multi-color floral embroidery. But then I hit the mother load. I could've spent all day combing the clearance racks at Sears. I actually tried on 8 things, and bought 4 -- 2 white skirts, a white top, and a silky blue button-down. Yeah - Sears! I can't remember the last time I bought something for myself there. I thought they were beyond ghetto. Maybe they are - but whenever I can get a skirt for $7 I'm happy.

We also got a hardcover complete works of Edgar Allen Poe for $8 from Borders (also on clearance).

My most expensive purchase of the day was this $12 t-shirt. The printing is actually purple, but you know what type of pictures my camera takes indoors. I can't wait to have an excuse to wear it somewhere. Oh heck -- I'm going to have to make plans just to have somewhere to wear it!

So I guess this shopping trip wasn't so bad. But I'm still glad it's over and I don't have to do that again any time soon.

You can wear the Depp shirt to the not-the-rehearsal-dinner!
