Snapped: The Fitting Room

snapped-fittingroom

Sometimes I take pictures in the fitting room because it seems like the cool thing to do... And then I end up with a bunch of evidence of my shopping habits and I get to analyze what I left behind and what I bought. So really, fitting room pictures are less about vanity but more about research, right?

(Clockwise starting at top left...)
 
1. Two questions... How could I have left this crazy sweater behind? Also, who in Hamilton loves sequins and felines as much as I do and bought this sweater before I had a change of mind and came back to get it two days after this picture was taken? Whooooooooo??? (Did that last plaintive cry make it three questions?)
2. Bought the skirt for $16 but wisely decided to wait on that sweater because it was $70. I saw that sweater go all the way down to $20 but I never ended up buying it. Either I didn't love it as much as I thought I did or I found that cropped sweaters are an easy find at the thrift store...
3. Mustard flares from Joe Fresh. I dig these. Might need to go back for these. Soon. Because mustard flares are a wardrobe basic?
4. Red wool blazer from the thrift store... I promised my friend I would find her a red blazer and when I did, I sent off this picture to seek her stamp of approval. The blazer got the thumbs up and in exchange she has promised me a BBQ this weekend. I need to barter like that more often... I thrift, you cook. That way everyone is fed and clothed... and happy.

I need someone to find me a white blazer. :) Maybe you could start a service.

And I can't believe you left a sequinned cat behind, either. I can feel your pain from here.

You should have gotten that cat sweater!

Good call on not paying $70 (or even $20) on that other sweater. It looks nice, but I feel like you can find something very similar for about $3-5.

I don't think I've ever really forgiven you for leaving that sweater behind. Sniff. But that pleated skirt is gorgeous!

You should see the sequin deliciousness I thrifted last weekend! I think that what I love most is the noise the top makes when I move!

ahahhaa I just LOL'd at the mustard pants picture because I knew they were Joe before I even read the blurb below! I've seen/taken photos in many a Joe Fresh change room in my days... x

Ugh... I left the cat sweater because it was $67! But I found it online for about $250... Then I went back for it and it was gone...
Inherited hornet- the skirt is from Winners (tj maxx) last fall/winter
