In fact, I'm feeling so good about that whole day that I'm going to show you all the silly pictures of myself I took in those fitting rooms, trying on clothes I knew I wouldn't buy (remember this?) and therefore not caring too much how they looked. I only regretted ordering the milkshake and the fries with my lunch a few times.
Going left to right, top to bottom, the first pic is me in my own clothes, Anthropologie in shots 2-9, Loft shots 10-11, Gap shot 12, and H&M the final three. If I were spending money on clothes right now, I would have bought the tops/sweaters in 2, 3, 5, and 15 in a heartbeat. It's fun to pretend.
In order to help ease the pain of leaving without any bags of clothes, I did buy myself a mug from a set of dishes at Anthro that I've been eyeing for a while now. I showed it in a picture last week, and it's been my constant companion since it arrived at home. $12 of pure happiness right there.
Seriously, though, I do not know how fashion bloggers manage to ever take any decent pictures of themselves. I guess you need a tripod and a remote, but when you're in a fitting room that doesn't work - they must just be a lot more talented than I am at posing gracefully while holding the camera. Don't you love my "artsy" over-the-shoulder shot? Classy.
Once I got tired of trying on clothes, I tried on shoes. I'm sparing you all the details of that adventure, but I do really like these. (I used to wear heels every single day - guess I'm finally resigning myself to being the "cute flats"
