Today we're back to my random ramblings and no discussion about my clothes. The other day I was in Bloomingdale's with the Scot, we were just passing through staring longingly at the expensive goodies. I spied a teenage girl with an armful of expensive looking dresses, pants, skirts and well any thing she could carry, heading off to the dressing room. A woman, that I assumed is her mother, was trailing behind with even more designer duds in tow. The mother stops, looks at a mannequin wearing a gorgeous white peplum dress and exclaims, "Honey, you should try this one on!!!" The teenager, exasperated, whines, "MOOoooommmmm!!!! I already have that dress stupid!!! Hurry up!!" She stomped off to the dressing room leaving her mother embarrassed about her horrid child's behavior. Seriously? You own a dress still featured on the mannequin? You didn't even wait a little while to see if it went on sale? AND you bought a teenage girl a white dress?!? That will be covered in Cheeto dust or ripped in no time. That mother is wasting so much money.
After this unfolded before me and I had a million thoughts about what was wrong with this situation running through my head, I looked at the Scot and said, "When I have enough money to shop here, I will shop here and my kids will shop at Old Navy." Actually, I will probably still shop at Old Navy. Who am I kidding?
