Are you going straight from work?
The rt 9/ rt 30 traffic isn't as irritating at 128 at that hour, although I would avoid the pike either way.
I don't know from stores, but traffic... I know about traffic
Yes, right from work. Otherwise I won't get off my ass to go. And yea, going out west at that time of day isn't that bad... remember, I"m driving out to springfield after work 1-2 days a month now.
right. But then you can't avoid the pike, so you just deal with it.
and 128 just blows, especially heading north. you want to do that in the middle of the night, really.
except that you don't, because it's the middle of the night. You know what I mean.
man. have fun shopping.
Holy crap you shop more expensive than I do.
OK, it's hard not to be more expensive than Target, Marshall's, Frugal Fannie's and thrift stores, but still...that stuff is pricey.
Also, this does help explain why I never find the kind of work-friendly clothes I like at my chosen clothes sources. I need to get rid of a whole lot of it so I can even justify looking at newer things that fit.
I'd say...unless you have a friend to keep you on track, keep you interested, and keep things efficient, go for the place that has fewer stores.
Yes. I shop expensive, when I bother to shop. But the clothes that then fit me well last me YEARS. Most of the stuff that doens't fit me that I"m grumbling about was not bought at those places, and so I'm breaking down and spending the money.
I'm good at keeping myself on track with shopping, but it's a valid point.
Well, it's just more fun with someone else.
...For most people. Not me.
I go in and tend to turn mercenary in clothing stores: run hands over racks, scanning for colors and textures that I like, grab ones that might work, throw in cart. Stare at self in mirror when trying on, and ask if I really love it, is it comfortable and can I sit/move in it, and does it actually flatter. If not, back it goes.
But I hear some people like doing this all with others.
And yeah, the more expensive stuff can last longer and wear better, but if it's something I suspect is trendy and won't be worn in a couple years? I try to go for the cheap places.
I need to go shopping, too, but it's q_e's un-birthday today, so we're doing eat out things when I get home. Ironically at the Burlington Mall (Johnny Rocket's then cheesecake- thus eliminating my work this AM at the gym :P)
Mind you the shopping I need to do is more the shorts and exercise variety of clothes.
Um.... Hi! I guess I chimed in to say "no". I'm a dork.
lol. That's fine. You are a cute dork, so you are totally allowed.
I went through a similar thought process, got to the "no" bit, and stopped. :)
'cause I need clothes, but probably can't afford to walk into the places she is shopping, let alone buy anything.
Am not! I wear Jeans and T-Shirts! Really!
... They just happen to be *flattering* Jeans and T-Shirts ...
And you know what Express's necklines are like this season.
No, I know what they were in the fall. They were cleavagy enough that i wore a sweater from them working Reg at Arisia... and I will not wear that sweater to work without a higher necklined shirt under it. I'm just presuming they haven't gotten less slutty since the fall.
I'm not helping myself here am I?
