children of dune - leto 1

this is a post about shopping

So it is not like, the mature way to deal with having a bad week, but I'm okay with that because I've been waiting for this all year: to wit, when it's almost summer and after a year of school uniforms and only a couple of extra outfits, I get to dress Child in non-uniform, non-holiday-related clothes.

This? Is the best part of my shopping year.

Parents who do not do uniforms for school get to do this a lot and so probably don't get how hugely fun this is. This is also because I save up all the money I'd use on his clothes during the year so I can do this shopping-spree style, because seriously, this is the only time I can wander into the store holding nothing but a credit card and a smile and say "Whee!" I'm a goddamn girl and I'm living the dream, man. Living the dream.

Happy. Oh! Nordstrom's Rack has a metric ton of, I kid you not, adorable little Twilight/New Moon shirts. I almost grabbed one for svmadelyn and get us a matched set, but I worried she might strangle me in my sleep. They are a sort of loose, clingy, gauzy fabric, long sleeve, short sleeve, and tank tops, and ridiculously cute and some have quotes written in dramatic script on them and some say like, Team Wolfpack, and yeah, I wanted that one so much. But only if I could make other people at VVC wear them with me so we could achieve solidarity in people mocking us.

Oh, feel free to judge me on that one. I judge myself, totally. Because I totally have one and am wearing it. So there.
