So, like I said in my last post, the writers of Fashion and Frosting went on a big shopping trip on Wednesday. The Mall in Columbia is a big mall about an hour or so away from where we live. It has almost every store we love to go to.
We started out early, Carey and Megan showed up at my house at around 8:00AM. After a nice pancake, whip cream, and a special mixture of Orange Juice and Sprite, we head out! Dressed in each of our favorite sun dresses, we headed to American Eagle first. The first store in a shopping day is hard. You find things you like, but don’t want to spend any money on anything just yet, in case you find something better later. However, when we went back later we did make quite a few purchases. (There will be a full list of what each of us bought from where at the end of this post)
After walking out of a few more stores empty handed we decided to grab lunch and a coffee and re-group. Sitting in Panera, we talked about what each of us wanted to buy by the end of the trip. (It’s always good to have a list of some of the things you want, so you aren’t just walking around not knowing) After finishing the last of our coffee, we went to Aberocrombie and Fitch. I have had my eye on a certain shirt there forever and was really excited to try it on. NO! We went in and I asked the guy where I could find the shirt on the Mannequin. His Response? “Oh, we don’t sell the things on the mannequins in stores, you have to buy it online.” WHAT?!!? Why would you display things in your store that YOU DON’T SELL? We left, and headed to a few more stores before we started getting in the groove.
Here are a few tips that I have learned along the way:
- - It IS hard to buy something you like in the first store, so if you aren’t sure, come back later.
- - Try EVERYTHING on, even if you are positive it will fit. When we went to Pac Sun, I was almost certain this cute tank top was going to fit, but after I tried it on I discovered it looked HORRIBLE!
- - If you aren’t in the shopping mood, grab a drink and a table and chill for a while. Then go back and try again.
- - Even though you might have a certain style (flirty, edgy, chill) its fun to try ones that are out of your comfort zone. Have a friend that isn’t always your style pick something out for you. You never know, you might find that you like it!
And now, what we bought! (for some reason, blogger is being difficult so I will post pics of what we bought in the Photo Gallery!)
