Yesterday I went for a walk and I took some pictures so that it would be like taking you guys along with me. Are you ready?
The first stop was at my favourite shmata store. Look at those prices! Sun dresses for $6! Hoodies for $13! How could you go wrong? Okay, I'll admit it, you could still go wrong. But I did pick up a nice pair of pink sweatpants for my couch potato act at home. They were a steal at $10, and they are very comfy.
I walked past the William Ashley store. They may be snotty and overpriced, but they're not above using a pun for a window display.
Since I was in Yorkville, I took some notes on the latest fashions. Stripes are still in. Even basset hounds are wearing them.
Also, inexplicably, leopard spots are in. Here is a sweater that says "Love" backwards and forwards, with three-quarter length leopard-print sleeves. Is it just me, or are fashion designers getting desperate? I mean, it seems like they'll do anything to produce original clothing, regardless of whether or not it actually looks good.
The mall is under renovation. I guess they think this is cute. Kind of a chick-lit book-cover style of shopping encouragement. Ladies! Don't let your enthusiasm be dampened by the scaffolding!
Here is the leopard look for men. Are all you guys paying attention? I expect you to study the mannequin and make sure this look is in your wardrobe for Saturday night on the town. Or maybe even casual Friday at work, if you're feeling bold.
I did not buy any leopard print anything. I did manage to finally spend the rest of a gift certificate that I've been carrying around since my last birthday. (It's almost my next birthday.) I bought a new cardigan (fuchsia, summer weight) because I am of the opinion that I can never have too many cardigans.
Finally, I stopped in at the library, where I discovered another pun. IMHO this one is better than William Ashley's. I approve.
