|Celebrity Pink Skinny Jeans at Macy's|
I hate it when I want something specific. I'm very impatient once I've made up my mind that I want [insert anything new here] and inevitably I can never find it. Once it's in my head I am basically tormented by it so I pretty much don't give up until I find it. I'm on a mission. This time I wanted Beige skinny jeans, I didn't want to pay a lot for them and I wanted 'em now. I walked into store after store at the mall until I finally found these Celebrity Pink Jeans at Macy's. The color is darker then I originally wanted but I was desperate. Just one problem. That darn mannequin girl was wearing the only pair in my size. She's not going anywhere; surely she can wear something else so I ask the sales lady if she can get the mannequin to take off those pants. She had to call someone else for help because miss mannequin wasn't giving them up easily and the pant removal actually required tools. I felt like a whiny high maintenance customer asking but I really wanted them. I distinctly remember colored denim being in a loooong time ago when I was in high school. They were mom jeans compared to the low slung version of today but I had white, black, beige, hunter green and plum. They disappeared for a while but like everything else in fashion their baaaaack.
The next day I stopped at Ross looking for some new work out clothes. I haven't bought new ones in about 10 years. I've basically been working out in rags (not really). Since this whole 'working out again' thing seems to be sticking it was time to update my gear. I found some cute tops and bottoms then poked around in the Juniors section and what else do I find? Celebrity Pink Skinny jeans for $18.99. Not only was the price $11 cheaper then at Macy's but the color was the lighter Tan I originally wanted. Little Miss mannequin at Macy's can have her jeans back. Sometimes I overlook Ross because it can be very disorganized and a pain in the butt to shop but this time they had exactly what I wanted.
I poked around in housewares and found a black rimmed full length wall mirror ($14.99) and the black storage ottoman that has been haunting me for about a year. I am so excited! Most of the ones I've been finding are about $250 and this one is only $99. I have tons of pajamas and instead of storing them awkwardly under the bed in a bin that doesn't quite fit I can put them in here where I can get to them easily AND we can sit on it. Later that night Mj says, "Will you be upset if I don't like it?" Uh, heck yes I'll be upset. I've been looking for this thing for over a year!! To top it off he says he isn't even sure why he doesn't like it; which clearly isn't a good enough explanation for me. I tell him he better "splain himself" and he says he thinks it's too big. Sigh. I think it fits in nicely in our bedroom. I'm hoping it will grow on him because I love it, I need it and like everything else I wanted it yesterday and don't want to keep shopping around for it.
