Fashion Rehab began just this past Friday. The final 12 hrs before the project started definitely caused a little bit of stress and a lot of anxiety in my household. It started like any other Thursday: woke up, ate breakfast, had a cup of tea, watched The Today Show, etc. until I realized that I had less than one day to buy anything for myself until May 15, 2010!
This pretty much sent me into a state of panic that led to a midday trip to Nordstrom Rack. I absolutely needed a pair of aviators for the year and could not justify paying full price! Then, somewhere around the dinner hour, I had a coin toss with myself to determine whether or not I should run up the street to The Gap and buy a black cardigan because mine is ultra faded and certainly won’t last the year. Heads I go, tails I stay. Tails it was. No new cardi for me. Bummer. A few hours later, after watching a very dramatic episode of Gossip Girl, I felt a burning desire to go to Walgreen’s (the only store open after 9:00 p.m.) to buy out the entire make-up counter. What is wrong with me? Common sense prevailed and that also did not happen.
All of these events were followed by a very restless night’s sleep that left me pondering the big question: Why are we doing this to ourselves? Stay tuned for what we hope are some pretty reasonable explanations to that conundrum…
Oh, and by the way, I did get the aviators, a great deal at 15 bucks but wish I had splurged for the Ray-Bans. I guess there is always next year.
