It was such a decadent day! I indulged in a little pre-spring shopping. I have this habit of seeing clothing in the store and immediately inventing a new lifestyle for myself based on the outfit. The game of 'match outfit with fantasy life' goes something like this:
"Oh I must have this cool army green drawstring jacket. Yes. Yes I must. It's absolutely perfect for clam digging and picking up seashells along the coastline in Maine." Huh?
Or,"Ooooh these pixie pants are exactly what I need for that imaginary Audrey Hepburn inspired cocktail party that one day 'Future Emily' may get invited to." This hasn't happened yet.
"This thigh-length terracota hued cotton sweater is ideal for my lazy Saturdays spent milling about the farmer's market when I live in San Francisco. Ah yes, there I am, sifting through buckets of beets, flirting with local farmers and purchasing fresh ingredients to bake rhubarb pies." I've never ate a rhubarb.
Does anyone else do that when they go shopping? It's kind of like playing dress-up when you were little, conjuring up a new plot line for your life, only the money isn't play money anymore. Humph.
One of my purchases included this sweet-as-a-peach striped dress from Kate Spade. I love going into that store. Everything is so darn cute. I wish I could move into the space on 21st and 5th avenue and make a little bachelorette pad for myself! I can picture me now, cuddled up on the couch, sipping on pink champagne and baking pies.
