It was a busy shopping weekend for me that was spent braving long lines, chilly weather and cantankerous customers to pick up some last minute gifts for my loved ones. I shall explain.
While waiting in line to purchase some cozy thermals for my trip up north, this overly accessorized lady pokes me on the back and says " I was here, okay." Umm, cool. It isn't very often that random strangers confirm their existence to me. Fast forward 15 minutes later and lady returns trying to squeeze into the line behind me. Sista behind me was not having any of it.
Sista lady: Uh uh, no you don't.
Bling lady: I was here. (pokes me on the back once again)
Me: She was there.
Sista lady: I don't care where she was, she's been all around the store and ain't getting into this line.
Bling lady: But I was here. Tell her.
Bling lady looks at me pleading while Sista lady looks at me fuming. At this point, I'm not really sure what was expected of me. Was I supposed to push Sista lady back to rationalize this chick and her cutsies, risking my own safety and well being to make room for a woman who rudely poked me and invaded my personal space not once, but twice?
Me: I'm not going to fight for you lady, I just want to buy my long john leggings. And I would put those three necklaces back if I were you. Less is more.
Luckily, the day wasn't all drama. I did find some time to treat myself, making an appearance at my local Target on Sunday for the launch of the new William Rast designer collaboration.
Oh what fun it is to shop designer labels that I can actually afford. The line was totally up my fashion alley and I raced back and forth to the dressing room with my Biker Bohemian looks in tow four times. Sadly, most of my sizes were gone by 1pm, but I still tried on every pair of jeans on the Rast rack. The boot cut and skinny jeans didn't fit very well and would most def require alterations, so I focused on the tops. Chambray shirts, WR branded tanks, and cool cropped leather jackets that I had to step away from because I have already OD'ed on new coats this season.
Check out the collection for yourself at Target through January 22nd.
Best part of scoring my William Rast threads? No line.
