A glob of Pink
The weather has been reasonably cold enough to prompt some fall shopping.
For me atleast.
So I went to the Eglington center last night to look for some new work pants and maybe a top or two.
Lessons learnt so far -
a) never try on pants at stores that are NOT your usual stops. They'll just make you miserable coz nothing will seem to fit. Stick to the stores you know.
b) if a pair fits really good- buy two, especially if they are on sale
c) don't buy jewelry before you buy the top.
d) pray fervently that the color of the season is not something grotesque like 'Pink' or 'Orange'.
Whadoyouknow? The colour of this season is Pink. Every fucking thing is Pink or some print of pink or shade of pink. What are the designers/retailors thinking? That for the next 7/8 months we are not be allowed other colours?
Then if you somehow manage to successfully trek through all that pink stuff, you are faced with Ponchos! Everywhere you look- these hideous triangular pieces of crochet ...wool?cotton?...to be worn over jeans and tank-tops. And people are buying it too! Whts its purpose?- not warmth, not even style.
Nyway some-how I managed to find one top thats less-pinky right around closing time. and mission accomplished.
I'm still stuck with pink pajamas.
